Okay, admit it. You used to enjoy splattering paint onto paper by any means necessary with no regard for a mess, in order to create masterpieces to proudly display on the museum wall (better known as the refrigerator). "SpinArt," created by Brian Smith, is handheld nostalgia at its finest. It's also great to introduce to your little ones.

"SpinArt" is an app that creates colorful art on a spinning canvas. You start with a blank sheet of paper, a palette of vibrant paints and your imagination. With a spin of your finger you can create colorful art. You can change the color of your canvas or even start by using a picture from your photo library. "SpinArt" has six control buttons including three sizes of splatter brushes for you to customize each print. All you do is touch the spin button and swirl your finger on the screen then touch the canvas and lo and behold, wild and crazy art appears. When you're done, save the artwork for printing or use it as a background on your device. Think "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds" meets finger-painting in kindergarten class. What's more, "SpinArt" is fun for the whole family. Not only will your kids enjoy it, the adults are sure to get a kick out of it, too.
