Some people love playing with their smartphone, processing photos and sending edited results to buddies (with apps like e.g. "Fotor").
There are for iphones and ipods, called AutoPainter, AutoPainter II , AutoPainter III (I think).
I don't even know if they are still working on current IOS, maybe. Apple keep changing the development tools like they are going out of style. And not just small changes. Actual changes to the programming language (because that's what programmers love, to re-learn things every whim). I couldn't cope with it. Language and tools created by university academics where everyone with Phd has the next great idea so they keep changing it, adding, removing... great tools for young people (I assume) who don't need to be bothered by the old programming paradigms.
This is why I like Microsoft. Most of the time they just mess things up trying to be smart, then need to backtrack and end up pretty much where they started just a tiny bit better.... it is a very weird approach that somehow looks like big changes are being made, but in reality the end result is just being little refined old stuff with minute steps. Look at the Win7, Win8, Win8.1 Win10 and all that hula about new super-duper metro interface and no start button because no-one wants that, and here we go with Win 10.Start button is back with some changes and the metro interface is also mostly gone out of sight. Every cycle they do this, like clockwork. And my programming tools are just the same. The new Visual Studio is not much different than the VC6 I used almost two decades ago, even though it went through many pubertal changes - it ended up back where I liked it.
