Foolproof® is great! If the developers can add an alpha channel for each background they offer (concrete wall would be a nice addition) I would hope they could allow the paints to reveal the textures of those backgrounds, adding lots of realism.

Also it would make sense to be able to toggle the
option of seeing the original photo with being able (this is the most IMPORTANT suggestion for either the next update or an in-app purchase) to paint inside the magnifier lens since there is no apparent zoom feature while painting.

The auto paint feature is a nice intro, but the fun comes with the manual painting, which allows a large range of brush sizes, a variety of color approaches that have intensity sliders AND a slider for how random the colors are—great for grayscale original photos—all within the same painting!

Finally while the paint does smear nicely, there is no wipe-off/erase feature.

One day I'd like to see this on the desktop combined with some of the desktop features of PaintMee®.

Just buy it and send them your feature requests; they do listen.

Which is why they rock.

It’s crashing with the new update.

Figured out the crashing problem. If your device is set to save space with photos, your photo isn’t on the device even though you can see it. You either have to turn off that feature and get your photos onto the device or download the one you want individually before opening the app. This should have been worked out before the new release. Also, there is no extension for the app in Photos.

The Magic of Touch

The iPad and iPhone have made the touch interface an integral pat of our daily lives and this lovely application makes it all the more enjoyable! Foolproof takes full advantage of the iPad's smooth surface, turning your finger into a brush, and the iPad into a palette and canvas at the same time. Enjoyable! - My Apple Podcast
