Besides the 15 dollars cost, the HandyPaint application does not have any noticeable disadvantage. On the other hand, if you think of the number of drawing tools that it includes and the possibilities you have in drawing and editing, the price can be justified. However, you should keep in mind that you will be painting on a canvas the size of your Symbian’s screen. Therefore, you should not expect the pictures that you create to be as good looking as if you were to make them with professional pencils and brushes. Perhaps another disadvantage is that it can take up about 10 Mb of RAM and the RAM usage increases when operating the application.
