I love this app I hate this app I love this app. “Has great potential”. I have heard back from the developers in Japan, who say they are working on a fix for the main bug and possibly fixing some of the interface issues I brought up. Meanwhile what I can tell you is it’s lots of fun but frustrating as #$!

Among other frustrations it’s almost impossible to make pieces small enough for facial features, and if you get them small enough, you can’t rotate them (because you have to have two fingers on the piece, which don’t exactly fit when the piece is tiny). In any event the face is OK but I couldn’t really work on getting it to look more like Linda, and settled for it looking human :)
