This is a great software for kids and those learning to paint, draw or sketch on the computer without having to use costly devices like tablets and other touch devices.
I have used a few iPAD based apps for sketching, drawing and coloring but I would not give my costly iPAD to my toddler right now! Instead, I can have my kid use the cheap computer mouse and try her hands at coloring or sketching for now.
