For this week’s Un-Digi, I wanted to share with you one of my favorite apps for my iPad. I’m sure many of you have seen it around, but I wanted to share it in case there are those of you who haven’t seen it. It’s called Waterlogue, and it lets you created painted images with your photos.

So have you tried Waterlogue?
