Based on the phenomenally successful book Wreck This Journal by author and illustrator Keri Smith, Wreck This App brings creativity and chaos right to your fingertips.

Wreck This App helps you tap into your creative side in an entirely new way: by exploring your best mess-making and destructive abilities. Guided by more than 70 prompts, you can use an assortment of tools to deface photos, scribble wildly, drip ink across your screen, shatter your drawings, and more. If you like to color outside the lines, you’ve found the right app.

The app features:
- An array of drawing tools to scribble, spray-paint, smear, distort, type, shatter, and destroy
- Illustrations and prompts by bestselling author and illustrator Keri Smith
- Easy sharing tools so you can show off your best work

Apple has featured Wreck This App in New & Noteworthy.

Publishers Weekly calls the app “hours of fun… A really successful example of an experience based on a book that includes things neither a print book not an e-book could do.” Good E-Reader recommends Wreck This App “for grown-ups who want to channel their inner-children during the morning commute by letting the creativity ooze from their app-enabled devices.”
