Unlock A New Realm Of Imagination By Weaving A Masterpiece Of Silk

May 22, 2011
Feeling a bit creative sometimes? If you have an iPad, it may be time to check out a new app called Silk. Fun and easy for all ages, Silk allows anyone with an imagination to build a masterpiece of colorful satiny beauty. Silk offers five vibrant colors to weave a picture of luminescent wispy strands. Use smooth swipes of up to five fingers to generate ribbons of glowing silk. The strands will spread in the direction of the breeze. To change the wind direction, tap and hold with a single finger until you see sparkles, then drag your finger in the preferred direction and speed. Changing the wind direction only affects future ribbons. By default, these ribbons are ever changing amongst the colors, elegantly transitioning from one to another automatically. Performing a three finger tap on the screen will reveal the color picker at the bottom of the screen. Tap on any of the squares to select. You can continue to draw with the color choices still in view or do another three finger tap to hide them. Clear the board with a simple five finger tap. You can use Silk as just a casual way to relax, although, you may be so proud of your artwork to share it with friends, use it as a background, integrate it into other work, or simply print it out. To save your image, hide the color picker, then press and briefly hold both your iPad's Home button and sleep / wake button simultaneously. If done correctly, the screen will flash and your iDevice will emit a camera shutter sound. This process creates a screen capture. Screen captures are saved to the Camera Roll, located within the Photos app. The Photos app offers the ability to send images via emails, use them for backgrounds on your iDevice, send them to MobileMe, or even print it if you're using iOS 4.3 or later and have an AirPrint printer. Otherwise, you can simply send it to your computer like any other photo by just syncing your iPad as usual. Silk is compatible with iPad running iOS 4.0 or later, and is available in the App Store for $1.99. [gallery link="file" columns="4"]
