Paint Pad is a neat and simple tool and works very much in the same way as Microsoft Paint on the PC. You can import images taken on your Nokia N97 Mini and add a host of fun effects and artistic tricks. This may not be a serious app but it’s one that highlights the fun aspect of the N97 Mini.

It uses the Nokia N97 Mini Flash to maximum effect.
