Customer Reviews

Give 5 stars for more features?

Who asks for a 5 star rating in return for including better features in the next update? The UI is great and easy to use. We need color choices for annotations. Add this first, then I will give a 5 star review. Also, while we can undo a set of marks at a time, an undo button to delete only the last stroke will be helpful.

"If you'd like to see more colors for annotations, give us a 5 star rating." Until these changes are made, this app doesn't deserve its 5th star.

Simple and works well

Lots of functionality for a free app. Very easy to add lines and circles and squares and highlighting to photos, does just what I wanted.

More important than giving line thickness or color options, I'd rather have the ability to change the size of text annotations. Text is limited to one size and it's too big for anything but very simple notes. Please add font size control! I'd pay $1 for that!

Overall, very nice little app! Good job!

Why use this one?

I had used this for a while and it works and did what it said. However, there have been no updates in over a year and I see that this devs other app has received regular updates throughout all last year.
It seems he has given up on this one and now I will too. There is another app with the same name (with no hyphen). It is free to use any color pen with variable thickness and add text of any color to the pic for $0. Additional features are avail as an in app upgrade. So as I said, why bother with this one?
