An iPad app released Wednesday makes it easy to combine a drawing on the tablet with an audio memory -- such as your child's description of his or her artwork.

The app, Draw and Tell, features a standard coloring palette of 27 crayons, pencils or brushes. But in addition to the color selections, stamps, stickers and stencils, it has an option to record a short message to attach to the drawing.

Other apps such as Fotobabble marry sound and images, but the concept seems particularly well-suited to a children's drawing app. As demonstrated in this YouTube video, the app has potential to increase the "aww" factor of sending a drawing to grandma.

After testing out my own coloring skills on the app, my only criticism is this: The sharing capabilities are limited. There aren't any buttons to share the drawings through email, Facebook or Twitter. Rather, the app saves drawings as video files on your photo roll. It's up to you to email and share them as you would with any video.

Still, the "aww" moment might be worth the extra steps -- as long as grandma is tech-savvy enough to open a video attachment.
