Sometimes doodling is a great way to pass the time. Doodling can also be an ideal way to convey thoughts or express creativity visually. Swakker Doodle by Swakker, is a useful app that allows users to draw live with friends anywhere in the world.
Swakker Doodle is an interactive doodling app that the makers claim is “the modern equivalent of passing notes in class.” The animated home screen allows users to create their own login ID and password, giving them access to Swakker Doodle’s worldwide network and allowing users to add and be added by friends.
By pressing the center icon, users can doodle on an assortment of backgrounds. From the default piece of notebook paper, to an array of colors, to a napkin, as well as Hangman and Tic Tac Toe templates, Swakker Doodle provides a variety of attractive layouts for doodling. Users can choose their background by tapping on the Tic Tac Toe icon in the menu bar at the bottom of the screen. At the top right corner of the screen, you can also choose to take a picture with the camera-ready iPhone or import one from your photo library to use as the doodling template.
The squiggle icon to the far right in the menu bar brings users to a palette where they can choose any of Swakker Doodle’s 50 vivid pen color choices, as well as adjust pen thickness and color blending options. The first icon, which marks the eraser option, allows users to erase part of their doodle. If selected, you can tap the screen twice to erase the entire doodle.
With the stick figure icon, users can invite friends to join them in one of two ways: they can invite them to join the app by downloading Swakker Doodle, creating their own username, and enabling them to draw together, or they can invite already added friends to join a doodling session.
Once completed, you can save your work or upload doodles to Facebook by returning to the camera icon in the top right corner of the screen. For a YouTube demo of all that Swakker Doodle can do, visit http://www.swakker.com/ and Swak on!
