Likely named after Picasso, who did a whole series of light paintings, this app lets you capture both still photos and brief HD videos using nothing but your phone, a light, and, perhaps, a tripod. Most notably, it uses patent-pending tech to let you see the painting as it comes together, and has a built-in community to let you share your works and find new inspiration in the snaps of others.
