This app is AMAZING

Everyone, this app is so good! I use it a lot and it’s really good to use if your bored. The only thing is, can there be more drawings for free?? I know you can get some from the store but sometimes it doesn’t let you in even if you get the question correct. Besides that, I love this app!

Almost there..

I like this app a lot. It's fast, easy to use and fun. It has some really nice effects too. It's a little like the original Brushes app with it's brush styles and shapes. It's not just for kids either. It's deceptively quite advanced.

*Only one problem at the moment. It's very easy to lose your work if you open a drawing from the album to begin reworking on it. Once you tap the undo arrow the drawing can disappear forever. The redo button doesn't always retrieve it back.

I contacted the developer about this problem and got a swift response regarding the matter. Hopefully they can fix this bug soon and then it will be perfect.

DO NOT let your kids see this

I made the mistake of showing Drawing Pad to my kids. Now it's not my iPad any more: it's THEIR iPad. They love it. Even the 2.5yo completely gets the interface. He delights in dragging the stickers around, rotating them, and resizing them — especially all three at once while never lifting his index fingers. All I had to teach him was that he didn't have to pinch the crayons to pick them up.

Darren Murtha Design have built something special in Drawing Pad. Now all I can hope for is an iPod Touch version. I can't afford another three iPads…
