LOVE this app but it feels complicated to the novice
Dec 1, 2011
I LOVE this app, but I disagree with the product description that this would necessarily be the right choice for the 'casual doodler.' I love to draw (though I am not a trained artist) and have used a couple of drawing apps on the PC in the past, so I had some basis for understanding the various icons. But it still was a high learning curve for me to learn how to use this app.
I wish that it had a menu system across the top (a hidden one that pops up when you click the top of the screen) where you could pick colors and other basic commands instead of having to figure out which icon meant what and constantly going back and forth from between screens to change colors.
I saw something in the very basic "how to" that comes up when you first open the app about pressing in the middle of the circle where you pick your pen type, but I could never get that to work...I've only been using the app about a week but was a passengar on a car trip earlier this week and made a lot of use of the app then. With more use, I'm sure I'll discover new options.
For an artist, I can imagine that this would be like being a kid in a candy store. It is really a tremendous little package for a very tiny price. I just wish they'd made it a bit easier for the more novice among us to jump in with both feet.
