Library Of Paper Airplane Designs Available For iOS Devices
If you're tired of just folding a standard sheet of paper into the familiar delta-shaped paper airplane, then the app "How to Make Paper Airplanes" may be just the summer diversion you're looking for.
For instance, you might want to try to craft an F-117 Night Hawk or an F-16 Fighting Falcon from paper ... as an alternative to, say, an origami swan while you're watching the clock.
Technewsworld.com reports that the app has about a dozen templates pre-installed, with another 16 available for download. All are free, but if you choose to pay the $1.99, you can remove the banner ads from the screens.
Once you've picked your design, tap your way through the steps showing how to fold the paper into an airplane. One caveat, though. The app is of European design, so the standard paper size is a bit different than a normal U.S. 8.5 x 11 sheet.
The designs are rated from easy to difficult, and are represented in something resembling 3D. If nothing else, it's something to do when your inbox is empty and you're waiting for the clock to tick down to quitting time.
