What we hear about The Flake Factory

  • I've been creating flakes with this app for weeks, and I never get tired of it! That's a good thing considering I have abondoned about a thousand apps within a week!

  • I downloaded all of the free snowflake apps I could find and thus one is by far the best. It offers more complicated folds and an on screen preview that updates as you cut. This app is far superior to the ones offered in the featured section of the App Store.

  • I can't put my iPad down when I'm on this very addictive app. The only thing that I think would make this better is if there was a way for people to post their flakes for everyone else to see. There could be a rating system and a leader board of sorts. Other than that, Love Love Love this app!
