iPad App Review: Graffiti Spray Can 2

iPad App Review: Graffiti Spray Can 2

January 10th, 2011 by

The iPad is a portable media device, e-book reader, and business tool. But now some could claim that the iPad, along with with Graffiti Spray Can app, is doing its part to curb adolescent misbehavior by giving urban artists another outlet for their artistic expression. Graffiti Spray Can 2 is basically an art tablet app that lets you virtually spray paint  to your heart’s desire on dozens of different surfaces without having to worry about getting in trouble with the local fuzz.

How It Works

After watching a couple of seemingly unnecessary splash screens, then skipping past a screen consisting of nothing but a paint can that you can “shake” and a “Touch To Paint” button, you’re ready to go. The interface is seemingly simple, with only a trash can and a menu button, but under the menu button are dozens of options to customize your experience.

You can adjust the spray paint color, brush style and size, opacity, and even make it “drippy”. Play music while you paint, change the backdrop, share your work through FaceBook, Twitter, email, etc. It’s all fairly self-explanatory and lends itself well to exploration and experimentation.

Pros And Cons

Developer Elite Gudz got a lot of things right with this app. The photos of buildings and other landmarks that are your graffiti “canvas” are high-resolution pictures that provide a satisfyingly “urban” look to the environment. The pictures are great, but I’m not sure why they didn’t just let you also import photos from the photo album?

The music too is a similar story: great custom tunes included in the app, but why not throw in access to the iPod app and the user’s own library of music?

The spray painting experience is authentic and the graphics are handled well, with the paint responding very quickly to your drags across the surface of the device. By playing with the settings you can get a real approximation of the look of spray painting on the side of a building, and the spray can sound effects almost convince you that you can smell the spray paint as it shoots out of the can.

The default settings when you start the app don’t look very convincing though, so a nice future update would be a preset button that jumps all of your settings to where they need to be to create a fully authentic spray can experience. This way people get a choice between a real graffiti-style art app or what basically amounts to finger painting with sound effects, without having to poke around and figure it out on their own.


Graffiti Spray Can 2 is a good iPad novelty art app already that could be really great with a just couple of easy additions in future updates. For the current free price tag it’s definitely worth checking out.
