Recently, I was sent a copy of Wreck This App to check out on my iPad. It is an interactive adaptation of Keri Smith’s bestselling book Wreck This Journal. Published in 2007, Wreck This Journal has sold more than 400,000 copies and is one of the bestselling titles in the history of Perigee Books. An interactive journal that encourages creativity through destruction—everything from painting and scribbling to dripping and tearing—Wreck This Journal offers a variety of activities that expand the definition of creation, providing the perfect inspiration for an app.
Wreck This App replicates the format of Smith’s book with interactive tools that allow users to draw, paint, drip, and smear. The app prompts users to employ their best mess-making and destructive abilities, whether doodling on top of an imported self-portrait or tapping “holes” on the screen. The resulting creations can be shared, with easy prompts for exporting to Facebook and Flickr.
I must admit, this app is alot of fun and it is kid appropriate. Think of it as a multiple page activity book that both you and the kids can have alot of fun!
