Paint Park, a free photo-doodling application for the PS Vita, will launch on the PlayStation Network tomorrow, and a few more free apps are on their way, PlayStation Blog announced today.

Paint Park allows users to snap pictures with the PS Vita's cameras and then edit them using touchscreen-based drawing tools. Users can share their drawings online with friends, or do some cooperative doodling in a five-player ad-hoc mode. It will be available for free after the PlayStation Store updates tomorrow.

PlayStation Blog also revealed two other free applications that will come to the system this summer. The first, Treasure Park, will let you "create your own puzzles to challenge your friends with." Those puzzles can be distributed and received on-the-go for 3G Vita owners using the Near application, though we're still not sure what kinds of puzzles we'll be dealing with, or what kinds of treasure will be involved.

Even more curious is Wake Up Club, an application which "turns your PS Vita into an alarm clock that can sync up with other PS Vita users who set their alarm for the same time." We look forward to waking up with every other Vita owner who sets their alarm for 7:51 a.m., and then spends the next nine minutes thrashing around the bedroom in a bewildered, drowsy rage.
