The best doodle app availible!


Colortilt is an intuitive finger-doodling app. It works similarly to other doodle apps... except colors are selected by tilting the device.

It sounds like a small gimmick, but it makes all the difference in the world! 'Blending' colors is much, much easier. No more fiddling with sliders, although you CAN do that if, for some strange reason, you want to. You can change how often your drawing color changes, too - at the lowest setting, you'll be able to draw with exactly the colors you want, and at the highest, you'll be drawing pictures with incredibly organic color transitions. Additionally, the color changing can be locked at any time, so that you can paint with one specific color, regardless of orientation.

If tilting isn't your style, a very useful color wheel is availible - simply tap the color wheel button and the drag in a circle around it until you get exactly the color you want. Useful!

It's very hard to fault Colortilt. It accomplishes everything you could want it to, and then some. It really is the best fingerpainting app availible.

As a small note, I'd like to address the one- or two-star reviews that are saying it doesn't do what it's supposed to or that it's confusing. Clearly, these people are unable to read the very clearly labeled Help section that answers any question one could have...!

Great creative outlet


With the upgrades coming soon, this app will be even more fun. I don't get all the bad reviews?? It takes some finess and patience, but it is possible to paint some really beautiful abstracts. I have done ocean scapes, forests, sunsets, etc. Then to add some great effects, download your works to iPhoto. From there, use all the effect tools to manipulate the image even further. I printed out some of my favorite drawings and showed them to an art teacher. She couldn't believe it was done on a phone! Use your imagination and there are some really amazing possibilities with this artistic media. No I do not work for mac, but I enjoy graphic design and this is a fun little gadget...
BTW- the accelerometer is what makes tweaking colors in all kinds of textures so quickly and uniquely.



The instructions screen is incomplete, ending in mid-sentence with "Screenshots are taken by holding" -- so no idea how to take a screenshot, or if even more instructions are missing. Accessing the instructions screen doesn't work properly, as the "info" button (small circle with "i" like on standard Weather app) was inconsistently responsive, maybe slow to respond and then catching up on cached taps? And once you've started drawing, there's no way to return to instructions if you wanted to. If they can fix the instructions so that you can indeed save a screenshot, this might become a good cheaper alternative (at $0.99) to Sketches, which I bought though I thought it was too expensive at $5.99. The Sketches interface is more similar to a standard drawing program, though the spartan interface of Colortilt is fun to doodle with. So, sort of disappointed with Colortilt but didn't pay too much for it either.
