It was the little graphic app that started it all, and in glorious black and white, no less. What if MacPaint had lived? What if Apple put MacPaint on the iPhone? I’m rather certain that an iPhone version of MacPaint would look and work like Paint My Cat.
Paint Cats For $2 (minus a penny)
The iPhone and iPad are loaded with thousands of drawing apps, painting apps, photo enhancement apps, any of which makes the original MacPaint look archaic.
Paint My Cat is an unusual but clever drawing-cum-painting app that isn’t necessarily relegated to the kindergarten crowd.
Anyone with an iPhone or iPad will love what Paint My Cat can do. It blends drawing and painting tools with what is known as Augmented Reality technology.
Paint My Cat works two ways. Use the painting tools to paint the artwork on screen. As you paint, or draw, the magic wand charges and transforms a picture from 2D to 3D.
Or, simply use the crayons, pencils, or markers to color special pages. Then, use the camera to drop a photo into the picture in an augmented reality production.
Create a cat then play with the cat in the onscreen playroom. Use your finger to tickle and stroke the cat, or dress him or her or it up with special accessories.
MacPaint never looked this good and was never this robust.
Paint My Cat has 80 different colors and three brush sizes. The built-in visual effects make the characters come to life (that 3D effect is cool).
Paint My Cat is as much game as it is drawing and painting tool.
The game portion can be customized with your own color scheme and character ideas. Each character can interact with objects in the room.
This is a good way for children to gain improved hand eye coordination, and enhance motor skill development.
The built-in animations guide is simple enough for non-readers to use. There are no distracting advertisements. The cat makes sounds, and everything you do onscreen is saved.
Bored? Start over by erasing everything. Paint My Cat is a fun addition for children. It’s not just a painting and drawing.
