Our Review of Martha Stewart’s CraftStudio iPad App
Summer time is the perfect time to work on that old scrapbook. While I love a good scrapbooking project, the tech-obsessed soul in me yearns to see all real-world things with a digital companion. My crafting inspiration, Mrs. Martha Stewart, apparently agrees. Her new app, CraftStudio, does a fantastic job at letting you create virtual scrapbook pages right from your iPad.
There are all kinds of embellishment, paper and decor options — you can even shake your iPad to sprinkle glitter! (This was obviously my favorite part. It feels so real!) I was quite surprised to see how many different themes there were, from "Everyday" to "Birthday Party." You can even purchase additional theme embellishments for $2 each. And, while it might sound crazy to think that you're paying of virtual scrapbook paper, the designs are very well done and for that, I think it could be worth it.
Not into scrapbooking? For me, this app will now double as my go-to app any time I want to send a virtual greeting card. I especially love the ability to import photos, instantly making the card more sentimental. While I wish you could actually select a double-sided card feature, there are enough tools like pens and notebook paper to scribble a cute note onto whatever single-page card you design.
Our app review rating? 4.5 out of 5 jalapenos! Well done Martha & Co. This is the best app we've seen from you to date.
