There are many other drawing apps available, but the number that feature a song from San Francisco's Frances England numbers exactly one. It's a pretty simple one -- the user chooses a food (blueberries, broccoli, coffee, strawberries, etc.) from the top of the screen, and then drags it across the "table" at the center. In the case of liquids (coffee, orange juice) and some solids, the user "drops" them and then tilts the screen to direct where they roll. (So it's a physics puzzler, too!) You may not realize that there are more foods available than what's shown at top -- that menu scrolls left and right. As with most art apps, you can share with the world via various methods.
This won't change the world, but as a fun (and free) experiment (with, I repeat, a song from Frances England), it may be worth the 31 MB on your iDevice to amuse your littlest ones.
