Quick, simple, gets straight to work
Of many drawing/doodling apps I've downloaded (many paid for) this one stays installed. It doesn't mess around. When you open the app you go straight to a plain white screen which is ready for a medium weight black line drawing. Great for writing clandestine messages to nearby colleagues in work meetings (or school), instant illustrations or maps or any occasion where you'd be scrabbling for a post-it and pen. A plain and simple interface that cleverly uses a two-finger tap to get to the options. Just a few line weights and colours. It's all you need (most of the time). One very small feature that would be handy in a paid-for version: auto saving to photo gallery of doodles when exiting the app.
Outstanding program. As an artist it has revolutionised my sketching. It brings you back to very basic skills with a child like approach. Portraits take 5 minutes and capture the very essense of character. I read a review by David Hockney in The Times raving about it and I completely concur.
I like that there's nothing on the screen with this app - double-finger touch is the definitive and elegant solution! My only other wish would be for an adjustable differential between the 'touch point' and the 'draw point'. Named "Simple", kept simple - that's its strength.
