A Top 5 Best Selling App^ - The original Glow Doodle.
It’s not coincidence when teachers from different schools & nations bring the same app to their classroom for art, math, language lessons^^. Glow Doodle is thankfully the choice of many teachers worldwide with an open mind for educational technology.

In case you wonder what makes a doodling app a Top 5 App among hundred thousands of Apps:

- Born Original:
Glow Doodle was the first to bring razor sharp neon effect from the hands of professional designers to the fingertips of everyone of every age. It lit up iPhone users' Christmas & winter nights with a magical mood like never before when Glow Doodle was launched in winter 2009

- Quality-over-quantity & painstaking effort behind the simple to use App:
We could have allowed users to pick millions of random colors, but instead we spent tedious effort to fine tune a few. And more colors were introduced since its first launch.

- Support from quality users:
In the end, it was the overwhelming support from our users that propelled Glow Doodle to TOP 5 Best Selling Paid App in the US and UK App Stores. Although many developers have followed suit since then, we are proud of our quality users & especially teachers, including elementary teachers, around the world who brought Glow Doodle to their classrooms with a creative mind along with respect for original minds, a message invaluable to our children.

The moment when you press the "GLOW" button, you will be amazed how a seemingly ordinary drawing would turn into truly stunning Glow Doodle effect. It's a unique experience you won't find on other glow painting Apps.

Glow Doodle is the iconic app that introduced the funny way to create drawing with razor sharp light glow effect. Draw on your iPhone, iPod touch or iPad with Glow Doodle, then press the "GLOW" button and watch your doodle turning into fantastic light glow effect. You can even save your light glow doodle to photo albums and share.

NOW UPDATED with extra colors - Panther Pink, White, Magic Orange & Electric Magenta. Glow Doodle is optimized for the new iPhone & iPad Retina display - making it undoubtedly among the best Apps to showcase the stunning retina display on your new iPad & iPhone! Thanks for the overwhelming support to Glow Doodle!

* Fantastic Light Glow Effect
* Even higher quality glow effect on Retina displays
* Supports full screen drawing on wide screen displays!
* Different Doodle Colors: Red, Green, Blue, Yellow, Orange, Pink, White, Magenta

You can make part of your drawing "glow" (e.g. the flame of a rocket) while other part of the drawing doesn't "glow" (e.g. the rocket body). For example, (1) you draw the flame of the rocket first; (2) then press the "GLOW" button to make it glow; (3) continue to draw the rocket body without pressing the "GLOW" button again.

Great....but needs a few more features.


Awesome but needs a few more features such as:
1. An option to have eraser, not just the undo button, because what if we want to erase something, but not the last thing we did?
2. An option to make the pencil (or whatever you are drawing with), bigger or smaller.
3. An option to change the backround, to a different color, or as a photo from your photo album. And have the option to make the backround glow, whether it's a pic or a different color (that would be soooooooo cool) and if it's a pic have the option to resize it, so you could draw around it, on top of it, on the bottom of it etc. That would cool to!
4. To have way more colors, why don't u put like all the colors you can think of? Brown, purple, white, pink, grey etc. And if you can change the color of the backround also have a black as a color to draw with.

NOTE: Keep the glow affect....that is the whole part of glow doodle, don't change that! And keep the game .99 or make it free (your get more good views.) so just add the affects, please don't take away the old ones.

PS: I got most of these ideas from the game "Doodle buddy."
