I bet you had an Etch-a-Sketch when you were a kid. Those things were epic, weren’t they? I used to sit and draw with mine for hours on end. I’d probably still play with it if I had one now as a grown-up!
This is why I’m very happy to see the Mag Canvas app for the iPad. It’s a very basic app, without much variation on what you can do with it. However, I have a feeling it was designed that way on purpose. This app may be intended to keep kids occupied, but I have a feeling many parents will sneak in some drawing time of their own. This would be a great solution for keeping kids happy during a long car ride, or when you need a few moments of peace and quiet to recharge YOUR batteries.
This app should be available right at iPad launch time. Thanks to TUAW for finding this app for us.
