Used to be so great... until iOS 8.

This app was unexpectedly fun in its heyday... simple, intuitive, not bogged down with lots of menus and features, and allowing me to draw using almost all of my iPad's big screen. It had two crappy textures -- "brush", AKA smooth, and "chalk", AKA rough. It had a basic circular color-picker, a line-width slider, and some stamps or stickers to play with. But as simplistic as it was, I didn't realize how attached I'd gotten until I upgraded to iOS 8, and everything went haywire.

Now this app hangs/freezes within fifteen seconds of opening, usually when I try to access the color-picker or brush/chalk menu, but sometimes just in the middle of drawing. I contacted Pinger support to see about a fix, and got basically the "did you try unplugging it and plugging it back in" response... ie: "we're not super-interested in updating this app, so let's pretend to troubleshoot until you go away." Updates appear to have stopped in 2013.

I'm disappointed, and sort of amazed that no one else has written a doodle app with identical features and simplicity. Wish someone would, because it looks like Pinger has abandoned their creation and left us all high and dry.

(Oh, and by the way... I can confirm that paying the $.99 in-app fee to shut off ads isn't the solution either.)

Hey Pinger... you have a fan-base! We like your product, and I would pay a couple of bucks for a working version on the iPad. I'm sure others would too. How about it?

Please FIX THIS APP!!!

I've used and loved Doodle Buddy since I first loaded it into my iPad2 three years ago, but recently I upgraded, and Doodle Buddy has been totally unreliable ever since. It freezes, crashes, doesn't "Send to Photos" at all, and only erratically sends to email. Maybe it will, maybe it won't. I emailed Pinger about it days ago and received no reply. Even this review feature is buggy. PLEASE FIX THIS APP. PLEASE!

Please fix bugs described below!!😣

I really have enjoyed this app, but lately I can't change the color, because every time I do, the app freezes. It is very annoying. At one point, sound effects weren't working.

But, minus the bugs, this app is super great. It has tons of stickers you can use and it even lets you doodle on photos and smudge your drawings. Most apps do not do that. You should get it, it's great.
