I want to use this app But it's loading, always loading, restarted my note 3, force stopped the app, Uninstalled and reinstalled, cleared cache and data, nothing stops it from the Neverending loading, it's still going for 45 minutes and it always says the same thing, loading loading loading, first app I have ever had any issues with trying to start it, just going to uninstall there's nothing else I can do

Torrie Lindeblad

Want my money back After I bought a color enhancer ,the game froze and shut down my entire tablet . It now will not open. Their answer back says they know this is happening and choose not to refund my money. Wow, way to run a business . No app they make will I try.

Jason guest

Photo sand Great game/app, but photo sand doesn't work, I've tried everything but it doesn't seem to work. I would like a full refund if possible.

Jamie Avery

Not too great I tried to share it on instagram but it just kicked me out please fix that and I will rate a five but the rest of the game looks pretty good

Jesse Jehan

Needs work The idea is really cool and the web one works well but it seems like they don't really care for android. Sometimes itll keep adding sand after you've lifted your finger. Overall not very smooth and they call your phones' gallery "cameraroll".. I mean that's like straight iPhone port.

Andrew M.

Eh It works on the computer but it either stops or crashes whenever i try to get on it,it needs a little work.

Silver Kitty

Really buggy This app won't open. Every time I go to open the app it says "Unfortunately thisissand has stopped." I'll give it a three because I like the computer version.

Charlie Mulliss

Cool.... but issues... it keeps crashing, and making my phone overheat.

Nick Woodler

Doesn't even start up, Just always stops working D:

Chandra Deas

Neat but errors Everything seems to work fine on my note 4 until I try to finish and save to gallery. Then it sits and thinks and eventually gives an error message saying to try back later. I can save to the phone just fine.

Sureena Dragon

Jennifer Kurtz8

Kenkarl Wat

CrAzY Its realy good

Madison Deprima

Awesome This game is awesome and outstanding


I like Its original, creative and simple. I think maybe there could be more free options, even just the color change feature, but still its cool. I love you.

Matthew Finkelstein

Amazing Had a lot of fun with this.

Harley Withers

Best It was awesome m8

Kaileigh Moran

AWESOME This is the best game

Isabella Angus

Great game I live this game

Ava Guzman

Fix it I started playing this at school for art and then I thought I should get it for my phone so o paid the 1.99 with a redeem card and I want a refund because nothing is working with what I bought only when I try to get a picture the screen turns all white and the sand won't fall the app but please fix it....

Jason guest

Photo sand Great game/app, but photo sand doesn't work, I've tried everything but it doesn't seem to work. I would like a full refund if possible.

Katelynn Little

Not working I purchased the ability to use pictures yesterday and today it won't allow me to use it. I select a picture and it doesn't load.

Krystal K

This is absolutely worth the IAP. All of the good stuff rewrites IAP's but still fun and worth the $2.00. Even fun without the add on. Highly recommended. Samsung Note Edge.

jackson mcmann

Suck Loading... PLEASE HELP! I really like the concept of this game and I think it's a great idea but I can't play it because after clicking to lauch the app, it just loads in an endless attempt to run the game... I am using a samsung galaxy mega (if that helps) and I would really appreciate if you could help me... thanks :)

Darrell Floyd

Photo option is junk The app is okay, but every time I try to use the photo option, the photo gets rotated 90° from the way it is in my gallery, and I have to fill the photo from the side instead of the top. Rotating my phone then rotates the photo again. Very frustrating. If this gets fixed, I would definitely be happier with my purchase.

William W

Great! Great game but I don't wanna pay for the features that actually make the game worth getting

A Google User

AMAZING! It's the best game EVER you can create different kinds of sand art. It's not tricky, you don't pay, it's the BEST I LOVE IT!! ❤❤❤❤❤❤❤

Allie C

Good Such an innovative idea, but from the description, I thought I was going to get photos turned into sand. Also, you need to make more features free or at least make a trail version.

A Google User

Nothing works After I bought the toolbox thing, nothing worked. Instead it kept crashing the app. I uninstalled and reinstalled, but it still did not work. And now it won't even open. It stays on the loading screen. I either want a refund of my money, or for you to fix the application. This is kinda ridiculous.

John Sawyer

nice more options would shoot this app through the roof!

haylee Tersakian

Thisissand When i was in my art class my art teacher showed me now i got the app and you can get it too.

Kathryn Beatty

Awsome When I'm board I have something to do :-)

Vikki Iles

Vikki Sometimes it works, but not very often. Otherwise I would give 5 stars. Would be one of the best I have found, please try to fix x

Chase Fletcher

I like the game You shod play it at school

Michele Lawson

It won't let me press Share

Andrew Stevens

Great for Anxiety I have been diagnosed with severe anxiety for as long as I can remember. All I have to do is just set it to cool colors and start making pretty pictures and it just calms me down. Perfect app for anyone dealing with a mental illness.

Joey Newcomb

pretty fun There should be seperate categories between camera uploads, and uploads that people had to make themselves. Someone could post a picture of cleavage and get more views than someone who spent a long time creating something.

Smiley Face

Great That is great but some of the features shouldn't cost money so I'm going to rate it four stars.

Jason Virga

Love it! Great way to pass time when you're stressed out..

Alana Ezard

Love it Great app. How do you restart of you don't like what you have done? Thanks

Noah Hernandez

Thisissand It is colorful and awesome.

Sgt Duck

Can't buy toolkit Free version is meh, so I tried to buy the toolkit, but it just says it is unavailable on my device, would rate 5 stars if not for this

Syd Wag

It gets boring after a while but it's a fun temporary game

Jasmyn Larson

Very Relaxing This is such a relaxing fun game. I can sit and do this for hours.

Kaitlin Davis

Ugh Only the first time ever you can do multicolor and it should be every game like online please fix it

Elain Trout

Sand art It's pretty easy to use and it reminds me of filling up bottles with colored sand. Fun stuff

Carrie Lynn

Love it Best game ever so much fun like hours of enjoyment

Joyce Heatherington

Thank you! Thank you customer service, very kind and helpful! go opposite of the way I want it too. -- Thank you, I will send an email. Very Grateful for your help.

Mirjam Tullus

Like therapy It's cool, and though i won't be purchasing the full version, it's an amazing time-filler.

kailey hensley

Sandtastic I like it because I love colors and that's cool cause I can also get it on a computer

Lissey Mendoza

Cool ?? I love this game a can play for hours?

Isaac Daynes

Great Just what I looked for

Mrs Nicholson

Good concept, big issues The camera constantly running so users can eyedropper colour from their surroundings consumes battery and makes my phone extremely hot. This is kind of unnecessary and the novelty of the function isn't worth making the app unusable for extended periods. Please consider changing how this function is accessed so the camera doesn't have to be constantly running. Other than that it's an entertaining enough app

Colin Aycock

I loved this awesome app. I would've rated it five stars but I have a few problems dealing with getting used to/figuring out the controls. Beige Elephant you should include more details upon starting the app for example telling people that if you hold on one color in the selection,in the basic free selection, then moving your finger to a different shade of/or a color you can make a slowly changing sand instead of doing layer after layer of colors. P.S Your app is amazing and has great potential.

Cassy Plowman

Slight problem It dosent work in landscape mode (using a Samsung galexy tab 4 tablet) when I rotate it it's just goes black but when I return it to Portrait mode it works fine please fix I love the desktop version of this

Jenny Hannen

I don't hate it! But.... I don't like the fact that I am not able to report or flag inappropriate pictures. I'm sure children play with this app. I'd give it more stars if I didn't have to see perverted men's penises.

Terrn Lister

Why did you ask for root access? This is highly convening and is making me think that this is malicious

Ken Caruthers

Suspicious Activity The app asks for Root Permission. This is extremely concerning to me. Unless you coded a request for it, it wouldn't ask. You've lost my trust. There's no telling what this app is doing. I'm going to look at your code and find out.

Eye Of Anger

Doesn't work. This app will not work on my Lenovo tablet. Please, fix this bug.

A Google User

Pretty cool, but can't clear it to start a new one.

A Google User

Question Fun, but why does it need root permissions?

2x Lynn

It won't let me get the extra kit, will give 5 stars if u fix it

Georgia Cotter

Ok It was good at first but then it got really boring, and I didn't like the fact that you have to pay for most of the tools. Also I had trouble submitting my creations. It could have been a lot better

Alexandra David

The only downside is that I can't save any 'photos'


Had a really hard time selecting certain options like changing the color pallette, it wouldn't have the option to change the number of colors and didn't like that you have to pay for the tools. A little difficult for me to navigate.

Vlad Jennings

Root permission to play? No thanks. Does not disclose why it needs root permission.

Mohamed Ali

Lagging at huawei p8 max, fix it please

bri miles

I purchased the upload your photo feature The sand looks nothing like the pictures! I also tried to use the auto sand and it didn't work. I wasted $1.99 on an app feature to an app that was already glitchy!!

Nick Gilbertson

Good, but Needs root access? Can't see why it would need root access, but is good otherwise

Jessica Cooper

One problem! I absolutely love this app, but I can't figure out how to save my own colors. Please help!

Joanna Hamelink

Awesome Let's you do any color you can enagine looks good

Hannah Riess

My favorite app I absolutely love this. It's a wonderful distraction.

Alora Dotson

Fun but.... I like the app, it's just kind of frustrating that I paid for HD sand and it looks the exact same as the normal sand..... I also wish there was a way to make the sand fall quicker, especially with the photos, it takes forever to fill one photo and if you aren't super careful it ends up looking awful.. it would also be cool if the color shifter feature had a way to only choose all dark colors or all green toned colors

Kori Daminato

Good but one problem Whenever i try to turn on the HD sand (which i purchased) it goes back to my homescreen

H2O Delirious

Great This is a great timekiller but can you guys who work on the game change the themes a little bit to a user theme so we can make our own theme and challenges so the other users can vote

Dennis Dillon

Very Zen. Very good for just chilling. And the photo sand feature is worth the $2. Would have giving it 5 stars, but it's a little glitchy.

Martin Van Achter

This app is awesome The app is absolutely fantastic, worth the £1.39 I paid. An idea i had is being able to automatically convert images into sand instead of having to fill it yourself as if it goes wrong all the colours seem to mix together and it ruins the image. Other than that the app is one of the best apps I've ever had

Joey Kauhi

I love this app! Just have to say, first of all, I had a suggestion for the devs, and they got back to me in 6 minutes. Knowing they care that much gave em an automatic ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐! As for the app, it's so addictive! Not to mention calming and therapeutic. Thanks guys, for a great app.

Neidi Orozco

Love it but... anyone know how to erase the pic from the photo sand part? I press finish and discard but when I start a new one the previous pic I chose is still there. Only way to fix this is to uninstall and reinstall :/ This happens on both my phone and tablet

Taylor Doxtater

Idea The app is great and all, but I feel as though there should be a way to erase some of the sand you've put down without erasing all of it.

Elisabeth Stricklin

Slow it I love this after a busy day it's nice to just sit and chill and have a little fun while being creative

Barbara Ward

Wanna try but violent shaking giving me a headache already Why does the whole screen jitter while the app is open?

Anna Schafer

Best game ever Love it very fun and silly i hope this game gets big ?

Charles Phelps

Best ever I play this at my school with my freinds so fun

Maia Collins

Load of rubbish, why do you have to pay for so many separate tool kits?

Pjotr de Bruyne

Camera and KeepAwake Permissions? Why those permissions? Looks very shady.

Abby Friedline

You have to pay to use almost everything

Cassidy Nelson

Awesome Thisissand is very fun and addictive. Amost anyone who plays will love it!

George Koukouris

This game is so fun. You can be creative. It is just so cool

Kara Bear

Love it You get to make things


Good but drains the battery

Linus Levitt

Pointless download Literally the only thing you can do is drop sand, unless you pay for the tools. My problem isn't that you have to pay, my problem is they don't make it upfront, with so many features disabled on download, they should either get people to pay upfront, or let them trial more tools

JimmyJimJimbob James

Really fun when you just have a moment to kill The free version of this app is GREAT!! And the add-on just enhances the experience. WTF with these people who get mad at the developers when everything isn't free. These people should be told that after a hard week of work, asking for a paycheck makes them jerks and Con artists. Theses developers work hard, let you use their app for free and IF (and only if) you want to, you can purchase more features. What is wrong with that? Awesome job guys!!

BethAnn Mayberry

Pretty, but got Old quickly It was fine, just underwhelming especially next to some of the positively mesmerizing apps out there. I use them to help me sort of meditate and stave off panic attacks. This one was a We bit glitchy and just not as awesome as other ones so it has to go.

Krystal K

This is absolutely worth the IAP. All of the good stuff rewrites IAP's but still fun and worth the $2.00. Even fun without the add on. Highly recommended. Samsung Note5, S7 Edge, Nexus 6p

Kori Daminato

Good Its fun but the HD sand looks the same :/

Quinn McFaie

It's okay. Seems like a great concept, but changing colors is a pain. I couldn't get a multiple color palette selector to work.

Lauren de Blocq

Crashes on opening It worked fine the very first time I used it, but then every other time I've used it since then my phone has crashed when I opened it.

John Havok

Nice, but... Love this app. It works just fine and the sand drawing part is pretty unique and well done in my opinion. However, the toolkit, along with HD sand is not available on my device. Could you have a look into that please? My device is a Samsung Galaxy Tab S2

Lindsey Stanton

Fun and addicting But it won't let me submit my pictures and then I have to discard them

Rachael Michael

Awsome app Love this app so much now i can make backrounds for my phone ^_^ Just a bit upset that you have to pay to sandify your pictures


Fun but It won't let me share I press share button and it just says loading to share fix it please

HaYz CyRoGe

Won't play Look I love the game but it won't play after several retries and I bought the toolkit for it

Jacqueline Portnell

Perfect for nearly everything If you find yourself with nothing to do, this app works in 90% of those scenarios. It's great for stopping anxiety, preventing it, keeping you busy in public, killing time as you wait in line. Best of all, no ads! (They do make quite a sting at buying the full version, however)

Nam Tang

Interesting app You can make some cool creations in it but I was wondering whether you can change the default background color? If that could be implemented that would be great!

Erin McElderry

One problem so far, but awesome app overall I spent the $1.99, but the app shuts down every time I try to select HD sand.

Joseph Rogers

I have severe adhd This app is so great I have been diagnosed with severe adhd and all I have to do is get on this app and I'm completely calm (my parents love the app too!)

Joseph Bee

Doesn't work! I played it and as soon I started to drop sand, it lagged out and quit. It sucks.

Fey Fox

It's fun, but I wish they told us part of it costed

Lacy McDonald

Great time killer Whenever I'm waiting and have some time to pass, or I'm nervous and I don't know what else to do, I find mtself playing this game. This is the best way for me to calm down or pass the time. And it's simple to use


Great,but crashes It crashes when i use it for over 4-5 minutes,and it doesn't save my work

Ryan H. Pike

Makes my screen hot. I like this app but I've noticed it makes my screen get really hot.

Joel Kalich

Fun app, interesting idea. I've enjoyed this app, the customer support is even great, prompt and helpful.

Wainer Rinkler

I want my money back. First of all, why do you have to buy the full version as a dlc? Instead of just being able to buy a full version of the app in the play store. Second, the app is boring, I thought you could at least save your own pictures on the phone but no you can't do that. I should've known that you can't get a refund on dlc. I don't know if you guys are just assholes who want it that way so that nobody can refund it, or just didn't thought about putting it on the Play Store.

JimJam Baloney

Therapeutic I really enjoy playing with colors and seeing how they complement each other. I'm having an issue where the app gets stuck on the "Submitting" screen, and I have to force close the app and re-open.

Duckano Build Team

Fine It's fun although the kind of difficult to understand how it works.

Maia Collins

Since I've been corrected☺ it was actually a pretty good game. I just got a little annoyed when every time I clicked on a different tool, it said you have to pay for it. But it looks like you can buy a multi pack.

Cassie Arnold

Ridiculous It is infuriating that when I try to do something on this app, whenever I lift my finger off of the screen, the dand doesnt stop, it just keeps going and going and going.


Thanks Not only is this a fun thing to mess around with, but it also helped me with my geography and art homework so thanks to those who made this cause you really helped me with school =>

Alex Simpson

In app purchase I hate how almost EVERYTHING you can do in here costs, it's not even worth it, I mean, world colors? Jesus that's not even close to being worth 10 cents itself!

roger blais

Great, fun app Love to create new designs and view others. Why am I no longer able to save? I have reinstalled the app with no success.

Val Fl

HD doesn't look like it. Can't save pieces in full quality. Not much to do. Physics are kind of sub par.

Nathan deNoyelles

Pretty cool / Lag problems On my galaxy s7 edge the sand really lags when dropping it from the top area of the screen. It stutters and falls really slow. Other then that its a fun relaxing app!


Great It makes nice sounds and beautiful art. My only problem is that it's hard to control what the sand is going to make. Otherwise, great app.

Kailee Altman

It's great but... It desperately needs an undo button or something like it. I hate that if I mess up, I have to start the whole thing over again. And the double tapping to make it pour sand without touching it has caused me to mess up way too many times. That feature is a little unnecessary.

abii dew

Omg This is amazing. Its helped me so much. If im having an anxitey attack and i play this i feel it all melt away. Its helped my depression aswell. I love watching all the colors blend and AHHH I RECOMMEND IT TO ALL MY FRIENDS

Christine Mooth

Perfect Zen Tool Very nice stress relief tool. It is hard to use as much else, except if you buy the add-on toolkit which transforms pictures to sand. But fun little relaxation game.

Scarlet R

Too MANY Errors & Troubleshooting The app is fun to use when it comes to making art. BUT...There is so much errors & troubleshooting when I submit my work. Fix this.

Connie Harris

Ok. Great idea for an app and it would really help with anxiety but it keeps crashing and keeps becoming unresponsive. If that was fixed then it would definitely have 5 stars

Jan Styczen

Not working on Galaxy Note 5 When I launch the app I get the starting screen with a red alert which has "Context3D not avaliable! Possible reasons: wrong renderMode or missing device support." I would like to use the app because it looks quite intriguing but can't do so without a response from the developers.


Waste of Space When you bye it, you can only drop sand, don't you think you be able to use the other tools, too? Besides the color sand, what else is free? You should change most of this app. No offense.

Mariah R

Needs user gallery I love this app, really entertaining when you're bored but I wish I could see all the pieces I've posted all in one place, and see what other people have made.

Christianna Fabozzi

Cool graphics Not my cup of deal but nice and quiet like an adult coloring book app

Hunter Thompson

Cool game Love it thinks it's great, my kid nephew loves it too. Could guys possibly add being able to shake your mobile phone/pad/tablet whatever people have and see how the sand settles?
