What's New in Version 2.5

1) Undo/Redo bug fixed! Fixed a bug that would occasionally undo the entire the screen, causing you to have to redo back where you left off.

2) Sticker Bug fixed! Fixed a bug where dragging a sticker on the canvas would sometimes make the sticker immovable obscuring the tool drawer.

3) Optimized OpenGL Drawing Code! Drawing is more stable and blending is even better!

4) Time Status Bar bug fixed! Importing a photo would display the iOS Status bar and obscure the top of the drawer and canvas.

5) Accidental tool selected bug fixed - If you tapped a tool to stop it from moving, it would also accidentally select that tool.

6) Changed the "USB Tool" to a "Share Icon" which gives a better indication of what it does: Email, Facebook, Twitter, Print, Camera Roll, and Duplicate Save.

7) Added a "Parental Gate" to access the Coloring Book Store. Note: The Coloring Book Store can be completely hidden via iOS Settings > Applications > Drawing Pad > Store > Off

Customer Reviews

Nice support!

On a Saturday morning, my daughter asks me if I know how to fix an issue she is running into with Drawing Pad. She wants to save her drawing to the camera roll so that she can export to iMovie. I'm already pretty excited that she is engaged with something creative on her iPad, so I am eager to help. I emailed support after attempting to resolve the error myself. The developer replied to me within an hour and supplied a swift resolution to the issue. Thank you and well done!

Versatile and Kid-friendly App

This is one of my favorite apps for students. Our SK-8th grade students use it for a variety of subject areas including illustrating math problems and their own stories. Tons of tools, stickers and backgrounds add to students’ work. Easy to use, exports to camera roll so photos can be used in any other app! One of my 5 must have apps for iPad integration!

Perfect for students

The new update makes this our favorite app. Students from kindergarten to 8th grade use Drawing Pad on a daily basis. It utilizes multiple drawing tools, photo backgrounds, text, stickers and saves easily to the photo album. The special "rainbow" tools are a hit with younger crowd. Kudos to the developer for changing the outdated USB icon!
