4K Downloads In 2 Weeks iPhone App By Nine-Year Old Kid

Nine-year old Lim Ding Wen from Singapore has created a painting program called Doodle Kids which has been downloaded over 4,000 times in just 2 weeks from the Apple App Store.

The app lets iPhone users draw with their fingers, and then clear the screen by shaking the phone. Go ahead and check out Doodle Kids right here (it’s FREE).

According to Lim, there was a reason he created the app: “I wrote the program for my younger sisters, who like to draw…” (His sisters are 3 and 5). Lim, who is fluent in six programing languages, started using the computer at the age of 2. He has since completed about 20 programing projects. His father, Lim Thye Chean, a chief technology officer at a local technology firm, also writes iPhone applications and in the evening they check their App Store stats to see who has had more downloads for the day.
