Halloween Artist is a jack-o-lantern making tool released by penduinbits.
The application allows you to create jack-o-lanterns on the Touchpad.
The application lets select from four different pumpkins and the glowing animation within, then cut out of the face and curve it to get the final result.
It is hard to review an application like this, as it is so simple in design. It gives you all the controls you would expect like undo and clearing the pumpkin.
If anything could be added it would be something like having templates or different tools for cutting out the pumpkin, but the basics have been more than covered in the application as it stands.
The application also adds an option in exhibition mode to have a pumpkin clock, with is nice with Halloween coming up soon.
Its user interface is simple and even my four year old daughter managed to make a good jack-o-lantern on the app.
On the upside:
- Well designed user interface.
- Able to make a jack-o-lantern in seconds.
- Without the mess of the real version.
On the downside:
- Lack of options such as shapes (circle, squares).
- No export option, other than saving a photo of the pumpkin.
Overall, this is a nice application and will be very nice in the run up to Halloween. It can even be used to try out designs for a real world jack-o-lantern. Simple and easy to use, and great with Halloween just around the corner.
