iRangoli- Rangoli is an integral part of Indian tradition, no wonder there is an app that helps you make a rangoli. Designed to cash-on on the Diwali festivities, iRangoli allows you to create a rangoli using an easy to use interface. You can draw various rangoli shapes on pre-defined grid and fill them with one of the 18 colours available. You can then export these patterns as wallpapers or post them on your Facebook page.
Even with all this, the app is not intuitive enough on the iPad interface. In does not have a drag-and-drop interface and it does not give a listing of shapes available. One needs to keep cycling through shapes on the grid before getting to the desired options. Though, riddled with these issues – it is still a lot of fun on the iPad.
