  • Life Changing. Incredible App. Jun 8, 2018

    By SkiBearz23
    Dear Creators of ThisIsSand, I discovered your App unintentionally, but I am glad that I did. It allowed me to discover my true passion in life, and what I feel like the purpose of my life is. If this part if my life had never happened, I’m not sure where I’d be today. I am so grateful for all that you have done for me by creating this Application. What this app does for me is not only let me let out the creativity bottled up inside me, but also relieve stress in my creations without frustration. No matter what you do with this App it will automatically be a perfect work of art when you create something, and trust me, this App will not disappoint. There are no words to describe how incredible this App is, and there is no way to articulate my gratefulness. I hope others will understand my admiration for this App and follow my lead in downloading it. Thank you again creators, I hope there will be more like this in the future.

  • I enjoy this app a lot! Mar 16, 2021

    By clayd is my name on this app
    This is a really fun and entertaining app to have. Also super calming and relaxing app! It’s really cool making different things in the sand. It’s a challenge sometimes when you want to make cool things but this is good it makes you never get bored of the app. I love seeing other people’s art and seeing what they can do. I really do like this app but there’s some things that could make it way better. First I would love if you write comments on the art and suggest things to them and give them complements but for what ever reason you can’t. Second there’s a small glitch that makes me really mad so what happens is if you hold the sand for a long time and go up and down the painting after you stop it keeps going and messes up your hole painting. I believe this could be really easy to fix. Third is there needs to be a way of erasing the sand you put down. This bothers me the most because if you mess up or the glitch I was saying happened then you have to restart. This would be very easy to add in so I hope that you would please add something like this in it would make the app way better. Thanks for reading bye...............

    Omg it's on mobile! I see it has been for a while, but i could never find it! So happy! It would be nice to have purchases reflect on the account as a whole (what i expected), not just one device (what i experienced). Oh well, $2 is really nbd, plus, again, i love this app

    I stumbled upon your app unintentionally late one night. I have generalized anxiety disorder so I find it difficult to sleep due to feeling anxious at night but I started using your app and after I made my creation, I felt totally relaxed. It is a life changer for me. I have used it every night and I find myself more relaxed and able to manage my anxiety so thank you so much for creating it. I enjoy hearing the sound as the sand comes down (it is relaxing) and love seeing the variety of colors that make my creation. I plan on buying the extra tools and accessories that go with the app eventually. - from another Thisissand user.

    This app is super good for if you are angry or stressed. It immediately calms you down. You can even like and share people's projects. The only thing I recommend that they add is commenting. I think commenting on other's projects would be a great way to get to know the creators.
  • Suggestion for an important feature Aug 4, 2019

    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.

    Ever since I started using the website, I discovered there was a app, so why not download it? 𝙸𝚝 𝚒𝚜 𝚊𝚖𝚊𝚣𝚒𝚗𝚐!!! I also have some cool suggestions! First of all, why not let people follow there favorite artist! Secondly, there should be notifications, you’ll get some if someone likes your piece, if someone follows you, (if the creators allow that) and if one of your favorite artists post something! Lastly, I dislike that you can’t use color picker on a phone, so why not allow it to be on a photo! However, the app is 𝕠𝕦𝕥𝕤𝕥𝕒𝕟𝕕𝕚𝕟𝕘!!

    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

    I can use it and open the app, but it kept glitching black and back repeatedly that I can't use it because its hard to look at... I already uninstalled it more than twice and installed it back but it's still the same..

    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?

  • Addicting Mar 26, 2019

    By eveace22
    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.
  • 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?

  • Very Relaxing Mar 16, 2021

    By starsyd03
    This app is even better that their site, I would highly recommend getting it! The website is very limited and doesn’t have as many features, but the app has various features (even though you do have to pay for some). It is so relaxing and super fun to draw cool mountains! The only things I would improve would be to make the sand sound more gentle, maybe it is just my speakers but it sounds very harsh and scratchy to me. 10/10!

  • Suggestion for an important feature Aug 4, 2019

    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.

    Kinda nice. It gets boring after a while (maybe because I'm not good at it...) and it's kinda repetitive. But a nice relaxing game with no ads!
  • 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.
  • Can the Developer please read this? Jun 9, 2020

    By gray_alltheway14
    I am on an iPad and I already have an account. I bought the Toolkit about 3 months ago and I wanted to put it on this iPad. I tried to restore it but it said there were no things to be restored. The Toolkit was already locked not to be confused. I was feeling kind of ripped off because I don’t want to buy something I already bought. If you are the Developer, my account name is gray_alltheway14 and just think about this. I love the app, but I was just so confused.

    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 :-) ] (Updated Part) I wish this app had an eraser tool incase you make a mistake so you dont have to reset your creation over again!! Can you pretty please add a eraser tool ??
  • AWESOME Feb 23, 2019

    By Awesomeness ariel
    From user raffi First of all this game is relaxing unlike any other art app, just it’s been glitching. But this game is 👍. My dad was like oh this game just wants money it won’t give you the full version but I bought it anyway... IT WAS A TOTAL UPGRADE!!! I showed him all the new “ hd sand umm color shifter fav colors pic colors and all that. (I love proving him wrong!) love the features this game is both appropriate for seniors, adults and kids. Some of my moms friends are elderly so I plan on letting them fool around on Thisissand, too. Thanks for this great game!

    I gave this a 3 because this is super glitchy here is my expierence with this: i was playing it then my phone just shut off. And then came back on then off. It was SO GLITCHY so glitchy you would think someone is hacking. Then it turned off for like 30 mins. I was getting to the point where i thought it broke my phone. So please fix this. This game allmost BROKE MY PHONE. (on mobile)

    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!
