Needs work. But ok

Needs and undo button and able to take pics from camera.

Fun but not quite like the original

As I recall on the original, you dragged metal filings onto the picture and piled them up. You could also drag them away or move them around.

This would be better if you could drag from the edge to pick up some filings and drop them where you wanted them. Being able to drag clumps of filings around (back to the edge would remove them) would allow you to fix mistakes and give better control than just drawing on filings with your finger.

To all those griping about the price-Come on! It's 99 cents? What do you expect for a buck?

Don't be fooled by its's actually not great.

This was a great and fun idea for a program, but it's actually a terrible representation of this classic children's toy. First of all, the original had a bunch of magnetic powder at the bottom of the screen that you could drag from. This doesn't allow you to drag anything from the bottom of the screen. In fact, it doesn't allow you to drag anything! Dragging magnetic powder is so crucial to enjoying it because what if you mess up? What if you stick some dust in the wrong place? Well, you could drag it elsewhere. In this program, you can't drag away a mistake. You're STUCK WITH IT! Plus, the dust doesn't look right. It's a bunch of asterisks. And it makes it look like a bunch of ants are crawling on the guy. And the more you spat on, the worse it looks. No, no, no, the graphics should have been much better than this. Hopefully, they'll update it.
