If you’re looking to create classic paper snowflakes but don’t have paper and scissors, Paper Snow is a digital alternative!
With Paper Snow, you are simply given a sheet of paper already folded correctly, and you can choose what shapes to cut out of it. Then, click the button to unfold it and you can place your new snowflake on one of the existing backgrounds or a background of your choice.
The app works quite well. The control scheme is decently accurate, thanks to the ability to touch and hold to get a precision cursor. You can create whatever shapes you want, and even click to undo your changes in case you make a mistake.
Finally, the choice of backgrounds is really great. Each image looks perfect, and they all complement the snowflake very well. You can even share your completed image via Twitter or Facebook, or save it to your device for later sharing.
Overall, the app has a fast interface and works well. The only complaint could be that it always saves “created by Paper Snow” text at the bottom of the saved image, which is slightly annoying when you paid for an app.
Paper Snow is available in the Marketplace for $0.99 and has a free trial that allows you to create but not save the snowflakes.
