"Let's Bead Friends" is an application that lets you design your own friendship bracelets and email them to friends, post to Facebook, or add them to your jewelry box. This app is intuitive and easy to use. There are five basic shapes as well as a multitude of colors and designs to choose from. When you are done beading, you can add a message charm such as “miss you” or customize your own and then send the bracelet on its way.
I did not know if my 2.5 year old son's attention would hold, but he really enjoys this app. After taking a moment to show him how everything works, he took over designing his own beads and the stringing of his bracelet. "Mom, I'm good as this," my son said, smiling. It's really fun to see what shapes, colors, and designs he likes to choose, and he enjoys the sound effects and sparkles that play when your bracelet is done. There is also a button to tap to add more "fairy dust," and he taps this button often, saying "it's pretty." I would recommend this app to any child who is into crafts but also to crafty adults.
