Being able to draw on top of your screen has its advantages. WARNING: Don’t let any kids play with this or you could finish up with a screen filled with spaghetti! Or worse still icons coloured over!
If your wanting to show someone a particular setting this allows you to highlight it very easily and send it to twitter or by email etc. You can also have a lot of fun with this, imagination runs wild.
Once you have loaded the app onto your device and clicked on the icon a pencil will appear at the bottom left of the screen. Tapping the pencil will open a small 6 x 1 UI with Return, Colour, Paintbrush, Save, Dustbin and Exit. The features are very simple ones including, On Screen Annotation – Allows you to draw over ANY screen. Change Colors. Draw Shapes, Circle, Triangle, Rectangle, Line, Text. Fill your Shapes with color with the NEW fill paint tool and finally, Save what you create!
A simple guide:
Change shape (Click the square with the paintbrush in it) Change color (Click the square with color in it) default black. Draw on screen(Just click anywhere on the screen) Clear the Screen(Click the Dustbin) Return to normal interactivity(Click the return button) Close the program(Click the X after you click the drawing icon) The video below is only 59s long and is of poor quality with a shadow of a window shining on the device. But it does give a quick run-through.
Permissions Requested: SYSTEM_ALERT_WINDOW – Allows user to draw on the screen.
This is a very simple drawing app that allows you to draw on top of any screen. Having said that it still take a certain knowledge to develop and I give full credit to the developer for keeping it simple. I would like to see an option to move the object as with your finger on top you can’t see whether you have put it in the right place. On the Galaxy Note you will not have this problem as I read, it works well with the stylus.
