Graffiti Spray is a simple app which doesn't require any registration or personal info for using it. It is an app to let your imagination run wild and unleash your artistic flair. It provides users with two simple things: a wall and a few painting tools to make it into a masterpiece. Thus, users can move through the wall and paint it with a spray, marker, square and circles. Line size and color can be set at taggers' whim. In addition, there's an undo button (only one in a row) and any graffiti can be saved in your mobile device once it's done.
Graffiti would be a regular painting app so far if it weren't for a powerful feature it comes with: the Global Wall. That's an "online" wall shared by all the users. In other words, a wall that can be tagged and painted collaboratively for all Graffiti Spray users. Creating things together is always a great idea. However, there's not enough space in the wall for each user (even though it grows as more users download the app), there's no way to chat with the other users and there's no way to avoid trolls from destroying your ongoing masterpiece.
What's more, the app needs a complete redesign. It should be enhanced to make the most of that idea and turn it into a highly usable app. First off, more painting tools must be added as well as more intuitive erasing tools (the only way so far is a single undo or re-painting the whole wall). Second, the available space in the wall must be larger. Third, it needs a easier way to move through the wall (taping the "move" button each time isn't the most intuitive way to do so).
In brief, Graffiti Spray is good app backed by a great concept. However, more features and a revamped interface would make it reaching higher standards of usability and engagement.
