If you ever get stuck, just hit the left-hand corner at the top to display some tips. Of course, the app is best used at night and you'll get the best results with little in the background. It's certainly a great concept.

Opinion: Smaller, simple apps like these are what I really like about smartphones. The same sort of utilities that would help us on our PCs a decade ago are now bringing us fun like this. Happy New Years Fireworks is a fun app that both adults and children will love in equal measure. It might seem a little gimmicky but, aren't all the best apps a gimmick?
