iPad App Review: Glow Coloring                                   

Cost:  Free   

What does it promise?  Glow Coloring lets you color on your iPad in thick, “glowing” lines. You can also import a picture to color on, add text and export your work of art to Facebook or save it on your iPad.

Does it deliver?  Yes, Glow Coloring lets you color with glowing lines. You can change colors, add shapes and in general, use your creativity to make glowing designs. The app is pretty limited, but it looks cool and is oddly addictive in the short term.

Can I use it in my classroom?  There's no real educational component here, other than the fact that the app encourages creativity. It is, however, a mess-free medium that allows kids to produce works of art very quickly. Students could easily pass an iPad around and take turns in the classroom.

All apps can be found in the iPad apps store under education.
