One For The IPad

slide11It's DigiLit Sunday--digital ideas hosted by Margaret Simon on her blog Reflections On The Teche. Link up here.


         This is a quick post, sharing one app that I'm fond of. I know many of you have IPads, or you have them for students at school. This app, Drawing Desk, has been fun to use. It has a drawing and a doodle component. It is free, but you can pay a little more for a deluxe drawing pack. One can save the drawings, send to twitter or Facebook, or e-mail them and save them in IPhoto. Here's one drawing I did this morning, a shell from our recent vacation to Captiva Island. I don't know if you're trying to draw on the IPads, but it is a new kind of skill that I've been practicing. 

The downside to this is that you can't add text, except by writing. You would have to upload the photo to another app, like Skitch, to add text.  Here's an example:

The wonderful thing about Skitch is that you can access all the files from Evernote.

  3. Linda,
    That app is new to me. I like the way it has allowed different shading in your drawing. Looks like another fun one to check out. Thanks for sharing.

    1. I'm not great at it, but with a 'brush' one can stroke & stroke, for deeper shading, or lighter. I think it's worth spending time with, Cathy.
