    Im just slightly nervous about installing because no.1 : it hasnt been updated since 2017 no.2: it needs ascess to sooo many things. Like it needs acsess to my camera, my wifi connection info, etc,etc. Why? I understand that there is like a thing where you take a photo and can create the photo with sand but like- i dont trust apps that need this info and acsess to this stuff..(plz plz plz update)

  • amazing chill app Jun 8, 2019

    I love this game! it's a very relaxing and chill app. I showed it to my little siblings and now they take my phone all the time so they can make cool sand art. I only wish there was an undo button. sometimes I'll be almost done with a piece then mess up, and I'll have to restart the entire thing. annoying. also a color picker would be nice or a history of all the colors I've used for the last few pieces or something. besides that, I love this app and use it all the time to relax or take my mind off something. 10/10

    One of my favorite apps 💖 I probably create anywhere from 5-20 pieces of sand art on this app per day. It's fun & easy once you get the hang of it! It's really satisfying to scroll through all my previous creations & see what other people create too! I usually play this game while watching netflix bc it doesn't require TOO much effort & is very relaxing.

  • Suggestion for an important feature Aug 4, 2019

    By BkPatriot1776
    Overall, the app is nice. A bit limited in what you can make outside of mountain landscapes and abstract aesthetic art, but hey, if you want to actually draw something, there are other apps for that. However, I think it’s missing a very important feature: an undo/eraser tool. Or something similar. One of the biggest frustrations I get when using the app is that I misjudge how fast the colors will change, or I make some other mistake, and I have no way to change it but to completely start over. So I think one or more of the following features would be a big improvement: 1.) a simple undo button that will undo the last continuous stream(s) of sand you put down 2.) a rewind tool that will progressively remove all the sand you put down 3.) a “vacuum” sort of tool, similar to #2 except you can choose exactly what you want to remove 4.) a “blend” or “smudge” tool to smooth out any rough edges you don’t want (for example when I’m making a sky, I sometimes end up with sharp boundaries between colors that I don’t want) Other than that, the app is solid for what it is, but a bit more control will make it even better.

    I wish it worked on normal phone data that's why it only gets 4⭐ from me. And last time it was updated was in 2017 it needs to be updated yearly. But all in all the game is super great and I love how you can color your sands!!! I recommend it to everyone (who has wifi :-) ]

    I love the concept but this app seems really buggy. For instance, you can save colors but you cant remove your saved colors. It says you can and tells you how, but it doesnt work. It would also be nice to have an undo. Something like a 10-15 second undo option. Rather than having to discard the whole thing and start over. It really sucks to be close to finishing, but make a big mistake that ruins the whole idea, and your only options are to keep it or discard the entire thing and start over.

    I'm reducing my rating from 4 stars to 2, until the problem that appeared this morning goes away! I try to like another person's art, but a message tells me that it was unable to submit the like. I try to share my artwork, and the Internet connection is good, but the program cannot, for some reason, post my artwork. Uninstalling and reinstalling once didn't fix the problems. If it's something to do with me having over 4000 shared artwork, is that the maximum?

    Fun when your bored but putting basic features behind a paywall is just awful. If you do not pay for the full version then you have two things that are cool to use.

    Thisissand is great fun and I am wanting to create pieces every spare moment I get every day. The ability to pick your own colors or just use the random color picker plus the slider to adjust how fast the colors change allow endless possibilities for awesome creations. I am addicted!! One suggestion : Is it possible to have an “undo “ feature, not unlimited but even one or two undo’s? Sometimes I’m almost done with a piece and make one little mistake and want to go back and fix it. Just a thought.

    I get so relaxed watching the sand fall lol eventually I'd like to subscribe or buy the different features that I would need to do The full app because I know I remember when this is just a website I used to love going on the website and now that I have the app it's just so rewarding and fun to watch you know your creations you know in front of you as far as sand art goes

  • Love it! - Would like to save works for later Jul 31, 2018

    By 14erm14
    I have really been enjoying this app! It’s very relaxing and a fun break between tasks throughout the day. I wish, however, that there was a way to save multiple in-progress creations that you are working on to come back to later. I’m getting bored of the meticulous one I am currently working on and would love to save it, make a few different ones, and then return to finish my detailed one later. Is a feature like this possible?

  • A few suggestions Nov 5, 2019

    By totally not a taken nickname
    Pretty good game. Everything is good except for things I will mention here. First, if you are doing a hard specific design and you mess up, there is no eraser!! Then you have to start all over again. Adding an eraser would be great, or even a back button. Second, less important, too many things to have to pay money to get. At least we don’t need to pay money to save a color we really like, because it is hard to get the exact same color again. Thanks for reading this, and please take suggestions into consideration. :)

  • Bug, otherwise great May 12, 2018

    By justanunimportantperson
    I love this app. The features are great (and cheap, in my opinion) and it’s a great passtime. It’s easy to feel confident in your work since so many other people spend their time in the Latest section. However, I’ve come across a bug. When I try to use the image feature, a loading animation pops up as I choose my picture. After the picture is selected, the loading animation won’t go away and I can’t access the interface. I use an IPad on IOS 11. Fix this bug (and similar issues) and I’ll love this app.

    Love the concept and the options. Unfortunately the controls are underwhelming since you cannot do some of these things on your phone. (Even though you may have THE BEST smartphone... strange right? ) Seems like this game would be better played on an actual computer. I really wish there was a was to control the sand better during the photo option. That really gets me mad and has caused me to quit playing altogether for over a year. And NO updates ... ever? Update the d@#% game already!

    Hi everyone I found this amazing app about 2years ago it was very satisfying and therapeutic for me. Anyway long story short I recently tried it again but it kept freezing towards the end/completion unable to save an hours worth of artistic effort. Shame because it could be a 5 star experience.

    Great fun game, but I HAVE TO PAY TO GET MORE THEN 3 COLORS! In my school we play this with unlimited colors, but I get 3 shades of colors in the app! Not very happy about that... but I really do like the game.
