    Art Academy: SketchPad is a fun little app, which is essential for Miiverse artists and something to toy around with for others. You must understand, however, that you won't be guided through the experience, so you won't get any help understanding what you need to do. If you can get past that, you will find a fantastic tool to make pictures on the Wii U GamePad.

It's still a good drawing tool, but the version on the Nintendo DS is much better. The load times are slow, and as of today there still aren't any art tutorials. It is nice to let my kids draw on the TV, and it's only $4. I'm not sure why it takes several minutes to load. Full Review »

Anyone new to art academy or drawing in general will have nothing to gain from this, as there are no tutorials or lessons at all. Its strictly for the enthusiast, and for what it does there, it does well. Full Review »
