There is no shortage of apps that allow you to draw and doodle on your mobile device but some of them are so feature-packed that they lose the simplicity of just drawing and doodling. The DRAW 4 FREE app for your iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch gives you a way to draw whenever you like in a simple and carefree manner. Simply use your finger as your drawing tool and be as creative as you like. There is no bogging you down with excessive features and tools.
This app takes a simplistic approach to drawing and creativity. You still have customization features here but the focus is clearly on keeping things user-friendly. As mentioned you use your finger to draw. Your masterpieces can all be shared by email and you can save them to your Photo Album. Despite the fact it is kept simple and clean, users don't seem to be completely won over as of yet. This app gets an average user rating score. I think it’s really important to point out that this app isn’t about added features, tools, and editing options. If that’s the kind of app you’re looking for this one will surely disappoint you.
With that said there are plenty of positive customer reviews out there from users who love how fun it is, how creative it allows you to be, and that it's not confusing or time-consuming to use. Just launch the app and start drawing.

The Drawing Experience
As noted you won't find all kinds of added bells and whistles here but it is a solid offering all the same. You are able to change the background color, change the size of your brush strokes, and use images from your own Photo Album and then draw on them. Because this app is easy to use it's ideal for even kids to doodle and draw with. A couple of things to keep in mind when you use it, you will use your finger to draw and then to clear the screen all you have to do is clear your device.
I find the app is quite intuitive and as you draw it is showing up instantly without any lag. I like that you can adjust the thickness of the drawing tool, which lets you be far more detail-oriented. I always find it hard to fit much on the screen when you’re drawing but that is just typical of all free-form drawing apps such as this.
