http://www.downloadsquad.com – Filed under: Utilities, iPhone It's not often that you find children writing apps -- as Gizmodo notes, he's not the youngest (that award goes to a 9-year-old from Singapore) -- but it's still pretty damn impressive, considering the excellent quality of the application. iSketch [iTunes link] is by no means as nascent or spotty as its creator: it's actually rather good, as far as drawing apps go. Better yet, the app only costs 99 cents and a 'substantial portion' of the proceeds are being given to Mattel Children's Hospital UCLA. So if you need an iPhone drawing app, and you have a kind bone in your body, you should grab iSketch! Delving a little further, the comments on Gizmodo suggest that there are plenty of young software developers, they just don't offer up their proceeds to charity and thus don't get any attention. Can you think of any famous bits of software out there made by kids? Let me know!
