Draw, take notes, or scribble and save files using this Windows 8 Drawing app:
Like I said above, the app is very simple. There’s nothing much in this Windows 8 drawing app. Still it’s pretty useful and handy. The simplicity of this app, makes it a good app to choose. There’s just one screen in the app, and that is the canvas. The app gives pretty big area to draw freely. Everything that is needed for drawing is available in the same screen. All you have to do is right-click on the canvas and you’ll get necessary buttons in the bottom flyout. There’s not too many buttons in the app, only the requisite are there. These includes: Pencil, Erase, Clear, Color, Thickness, and Save. All these are pretty self-explanatory. Simply click on the requisite to do the desired.
Simply select Pencil and then choose desired color, and then start giving your thoughts a form by scribbling in the canvas. The pencil strokes are pretty clean and smooth. However, there is a problem with strokes when you increase the pencil size and draw. The strokes aren’t that smooth as they are in smaller strokes. The eraser tool is pretty good. Using it you can erase a specific part of the drawing rather than erasing the complete drawing, which is the case with many drawing apps. However the app does lack the zoom buttons. Because they can really help you to give lot more details in the drawing. Still the app is pretty good for scribbling and to draw something quickly.
Once you have drawn what you wanted, then you can save the file directly to SkyDrive or locally in your Windows 8 devices. The integration with SkyDrive works well. The app allows you to save the file in PNG or JPG file formats. You can also use the Windows 8 Share Charm, to directly share your drawing, notes, or scribble with friends and colleagues.
