I was really enjoying this app... Until I saw the iPhone version which is about a million time's better. I only really got it for the kids initially but after seeing the trailer I feel short changed... I hope we get a big update ( Aug 2013). Still waiting 8 months after this review! Still waiting 9 months later since initial review. Looking doubtful. The dev is still happy to cash in though.
Disappointed with android version I bought this app because my niece has it on her ipad. The Android version is missing all of my favorite features. On the ipad version there is a smudge option as well as mixed color options. If I had an ipad this would get five stars :(
Error 498 is only thing that app is doing. After working for some time and an update it stopped. IT WOULD RECOGNIZE THAT HAS BEEN PAID , REGARDLESS OF WHICH WOULD'T LET ME REINSTOLE. KEEPS GIVING THE ERROR
nice little drawing app This is a nice little drawing app. I can quickly choose a pencil or crayon with color and draw. Other apps may have more complete choices, but after having to specify tool type, line width, color, intensity, blah blah blah I find myself saying "just give me a darn pencil!" None of that with this app (although it DOES have a nice array of choices tucked in). And for $2, save yourself the ads, the constant requests to 'register', all the cr*p that pays for 'free' software. Just draw.
Not Worth the Money I saw a review on the IOS version of this program and was impressed. I was sadly shocked when I purchased this program and it wasn't at ALL like the IOS I saw advertised. I contacted Murtha.. and they wrote me a very curt reply which basically said "what did I expect.. the video I watched was IOS". Not only is the program poor.. and insufficient for anyone serious about drawing.. but their customer service is even worse. Buy Autodesk Sketchbook if you are serious about drawing.. If you are looking for a basic coloring program for your children.. there are better ones out there for free!
Sadly lacking compared to iOS I watched a number of YouTube videos of the iOS version of this app and decided to purchase it on the strength of what I saw. The Android version is very disappointing in comparison and lacks most of the features that really stood out in the iOS version (as many others have already commented). Given that Android now dominates the market, one would expect the two versions to be on par... or at least the Android version lagging only a little behind. There are many free apps on Android with better features and more capability than Drawing Pad on Android, the only current redeeming feature of which is a nice user interface. I'd strongly urge the developer to address this disparity and move quickly to introduce the missing features to what could easily be a top-selling app.
Great for S Pen
