"An utterly daft way to use all that technology, yet strangely addictive and thought provoking." -Rob Beattie, IT Reviews

REALISTIC SKYWRITING on your iPad! Write your name in the sky and watch it waft away like real skywriting! Sketch a picture or message, then save a picture of your work before it floats away!!

Write over cityscapes, watch your skywriting as it floats BEHIND buildings and palm trees, just like its actually in the sky!

UPDATED AGAIN! Now you can use YOUR OWN IMAGES as backgrounds for skywriting!

-- Change the "Wafting Away" speed! Set it slow to write a lot, then speed it up to watch it waft!
-- Set your OWN image as a background - write in the sky on your own pictures, then save the result to send to a friend!
-- One-Touch save image to photos!
-- SHAKE to clear the screen (watch your skywriting waft away in fast motion!)
-- Double-Tap to leave the basic blue and cycle through several backgrounds! Sky write over a cloudy sky, over a beach, a desert, or any of several famous cities! (And check it out: when you right on the palm tree, london, paris or new york images, you writing goes BEHIND the foreground stuff, like it's really in the sky!)

Created by Jeff Wolverton, working feature film visual effects artist.
