App Review: Sketchr by LizzardWerks
Sketchr by LizzardWerks brings a new way to draw on your iPod based on the traditional Etch-A-Sketch. Instead of the two knobs that you turn on an Etch-a-Sketch, all you need to do is tilt your device and a gray line moves across the screen. At any time during your creation of your masterpiece, you can pause the movement of the gray line and save it to your photos. To erase a drawing, shake your iPod just the way you do an Etch-A-Sketch. In the options menu, you can change the drawing speed from slow to fast, change the line thickness, and allow multiple lines. With the “allow multiple lines function,” you can pause your drawing, touch another spot on the picture, and pick up your drawing from there. This function allows you to draw pictures without the straggling line connecting each segment of your creation.
This app provides a unique way to draw, but it does take a lot of time and practice to master it. The one thing I think would really add to the app is the ability to save your sketches and come back to working on them later. If you’re looking for a good Etch-A-Sketch, but with a twist, this drawing board is for you. Sketchr is a fun way to get those old fashion Etch-A-Sketch photos you’ve been missing.
Sketchr is $0.99 in the iTunes App Store.
