What I Liked About this Origami App for Windows 8:
What I really loved about this Origami Windows 8 app is its beautiful tile-based interface. As you open the app, you will find three different categories: Easy, Normal, and Advanced. The ‘Easy’ category brings you very simple Origami folds such as simple bear, heart, pencil, plane, etc. The section is for kids and for the beginners. Next is ‘Normal’ where you will find Origami instructions for waterlily, frog, bat, ghost, etc. While the last one ‘Advanced’ section brings you step-by-step instructions for creating crane, iris, prawn, maple, and more.
As you click on a tile, a beautiful big screen will open where you will find steps to create a selected Origami. To view all the steps, you need to scroll towards right (using the mouse or the horizontal bar). Each step has been clearly explained with the help of a figure and written text. Right-click anywhere on the screen to access more options such as Brag, and Pin.

And What I Did Not..
Well, the availability of number of Origami art is very less. Only 18 different Origami folds are available for you to create (at time of writing of this article). Developers can work upon adding a large section of different Origami folds in the app. If you are already a master in Origami making, then you might want to skip this app (like me!).
