Foldify Zoo – Papercraft Fun! Review

Print out and make your own arts and crafts animals with Foldify Zoo for iPad

With Foldify Zoo, you can create your own collection of animals decorated to your own design, made out of folded pieces of paper. From the makers of the Foldify app, it is a simple yet effective app that could provide hours of fun for children and adults alike.

When you first open the app, you are greeted with a Foldified Giraffe, it gives you geographical information, and even offers you loads of educational information about the animals. So not only does it act as a great rainy day activity, but you can learn from it as well.

From the editing screen, you can either print it as is – via AirPrint or emailing a PDF to be printed – or let your creativity flow and give your animal a makeover. It can be a little tricky to get used to. The brush size can make details clunky, and sometimes the navigation can mean that you accidentally paint something you don’t want to but you can simply tap undo. You can see what your creation will look like once it is printed and built on the left-hand side, or share it on the online gallery.

The animals can be slightly fiddly to build once you have printed them out – there are three sizes available – so the bigger the better if you are all fingers and thumbs, but the end results are amusing and make great decorations!

Rated 4 out of 5

A romp of an app that comes into its own once you have finished designing and start making your projects!
