Zen Board 4.0

Flex your fleeting imagination with the Zen Board iPhone app. Just like a real Zen Board (or Buddha Board), what you paint evaporates like magic right before your eyes!

Unlike other painting applications, Zen Boards are used to demonstrate the impermanence of life by continually leaving you with a blank canvas to begin anew.

We chose the most important aspects of using a real Zen Board and made sure they were executed to perfection.

• The highest quality finger recognition possible for accurate and responsive painting

• A brush picker with 4 free calligraphy brushes to choose from

• 4 brushes for in-app purchase

• Water jar with soothing fluid dynamics (we spent weeks getting this right)

• Adjustable evaporation rate for paint strokes that dry on contact to strokes remaining on your board for several seconds

• Toggle evaporation off or on

• Save your works to your photos app (NEW)

• Share your works in an email (NEW)

• Share your works on your Facebook, Twitter, and Flickr (NEW)

For fans of Zen Bound, Fluid, Type Drawing, Flip Book, iColoring Book, iDoodle and Brushes.
