    Hi, I'm the creator of the app. I've mostly had feedback from casual users so far so I'd love to know what some of you guys think of it. Feature requests are welcome as well.

    As much as I really dislike the Droid Platform, I'm glad to see some decent art apps at least come out for it.


    My biggest recommendation for your app....Forget making this thing for Android Phones. The touch screens alone are for the most part garbage on some. I know first hand that capacative sylus's work horrid on the Droid 2.

    But Android Tablets...specifically the choice few that have N-trig Pen support would really benefit from your app. The HTC Flyer is the most stand out. Not even honeycomb nessicary, but The N-trig tablets require the app to be designed with the pen in mind, otherwise the pen won't work.

    And while hovering might still not work, overall accuracy is better and you get pressure sensitivty.

    N-trig sure ain't Wacom level, but its still preferable to Capacative Pens.
