Sand Drawing

Revel in seaside fun by visiting the beach on your iPad. The simple, well-designed app for kids of all ages goes easy on the bells and whistles. Instead, its soothing, beachy sound track (via an in-app radio station) accompanies budding artists’ digital sand drawings. A sweep of waves erases each masterpiece, making everyone long for summer.

Available at itunes.com, $2.
