Wow! This is a must get

Love Sandy’s books and this app is a great way to save money instead of buying the cards. The tangles are very inspiring. After playing around with a few of them, I was able to go in completely different directions. The step outs were clear and very well done done, she really paid attention to every detail, the shading was on point. If you’re looking for a Zentangle app that will get your creative juices flowing and is well made, this is the app for you. I have them all, and this is the best. If only I could add out add outside tangles, then it it would be perfect.

Love the variety and portability!

I'm a huge fan of the Zen Tangle books by Sandy Steen Bartholomew. This take the tangles on the go with me. I always have a small notebook and little pack of pens in my purse. I consult the app with the various tangles and step-by-step instructions to get inspiration. I purchased an additional add-on and it integrates perfectly with the original app, listed alphabetically by tangle name. Great value!

A great resource to have on-the-go. Sandy’s step-outs are easy to follow, and the filter options make finding the right tangle simple and fun.
