Great app

Different colors, lineweights, and translucencies help me do everything I need to with an app like this. I use it during online meetings to highlight what I want people to look at on-screen instead of just swirling my mouse around. Also, for making quick mark-ups on architectural drawings, etc. My only suggestions arise from when I change from one application to another, my deskscribbles don't STICK to that particular app - so a photo I circled in iPhoto might then become a circle around some miscellaneous text in Word. Also, if I circle something in a drawing, then zoom in, the circle doesn't zoom bigger with the drawing - it stays static. So I have to screenshoot my scribbles, then zoom or switch apps, clear my screen, and start over. It would be nice if you could somehow "tie" the scribbles to each app so you could have different scribbles open depending on what app you're in, or lock them to a particular screen so they zoom with that screen, or save them for quick recall later.

Good app

I use this app to write reminders to myself that I'd like to have stay on the desktop .. and .. to write reminders while I'm working with something else. Two things I'd like to see changed: (1) set the writing thickness to default to 'thin'. It's frustrating to bring up this app, start writing, and discover you're writing with a big fat crayon. (2) And most importantly .. The set of tools situates itself in the upper left corner of the screen. When this app is active and you start working with another app or document, the 'must use' upper left controls are covered by this app's nearly 1' square working tool. That means it becomes necessary to move the document to the right or down in order to click on its back arrow or forward arrow or to click one of the three colored buttons, etc. If this were my app I would place the set of tools at center top. Better yet I'd make its position determinable by the user. Otherwise, it's a good app.


I’ve been using this app since last March to doodle on my screen as well as on keynote presentations and the like. When I first got it, it was great. Then Keynote started disappearing when I started to use the app. Then it didn’t work at all with the new Keynote. But for some reasson, without their updating the app in over a year, everything is working out nicely. I just wish they’d update it for us retna display users. The edges of my pen are a little more pixalated now than they used to be. Nothing fancy; just a basic tune-up/keep up-to-date update. But I still love the app, regardless!
