What’s up everyone, John Rettinger from Techno Buffalo here and I want to give you a quick demonstration of the pretty cool free download from the App Store for your iPhone and iPod Touch
It’s called DoodleBuddy. Before I give you a demonstration, let me give you a little bit of a background. The iPhone as you may have heard we mentioned uses a capacitive touch screen. Meaning that there’s no squishy feeling and it makes its connection through a—of electrons from your finger to the screen. That’s why you can’t use it with gloves. You can’t use it through your shirt. It’s got to be a finger tip or some source of skin on the phone. On the other side of the spectrum there is something called a resistive touch screen and you may have seen that in a lot of Windows Mobile devices. These are the touch screens. You kind of see them like they’re a little bit squishy. And they make their connections from two layers of film. And if you push down on the film, that connection is made and that's where the touch is registered.
Now, the reason that I’m bringing this up is well, the resistive touch screen use a stylus. And people sometimes like stylus for drawing. Give it a little bit more accuracy than they get with just their finger and they really wasn’t a pretty descent or fun drawing application out there for the iPhone. In comes the DoodleBuddy that’s a free application. So, let me show you what this looks like. Go ahead and watch it up. There is DoodleBuddy. So, it’s fun is when you're wasting time, and you want to drop pictures or something. So, you can send—obviously because it’s free so we are going to go ahead and just hit Continue. So, you actually—and of the cool things you can do right here is actually invite friends to draw with you. But you know we can hit Start Drawing alone which actually sounds a little bit depressing. We will tap that and here you go, this is sort of your—in your options. You can pick your pen and your pen color and the size that you want it to be, that little dot right there, increase it in size because I move that slider over.
So, we’ll pick—seems good. How about I go with brown? And now, I can go ahead and start drawing and I’ll show you what the other options are in just a moment. Let’s say I want to draw a face and take my finger to draw a big circle, so there—a face. Now, there’s a little stamp button right next to it and I can pick a whole bunch of different shapes, so let’s ago ahead and pick, can I both? You can see that I was not blessed with any design or artistic ability or whatsoever. So boom eyeball, boom eyeball, it looks like something out of a—picture of person. But what you’re going to do, let’s give it a mouth and give it pursy sexy mouth there. Go back to the drawing, we will go back to my brown, get a little bit of nose and let’s give it some hair.
And with this stuff, you can have fun with. And as you go back, you can see these other options. You can start doing some smudge tools, you can erase actually some smudged stuff so I want to smudge her mouth. They can look like she just had a really long night. And I want to let’s say maybe put some feet down below here for I'm not sure what reason. And right down there, there is a pound sign. Hit that pound sign. You get some options, you can change your background, you can change the white, you can pick a photo or you can go right from the camera. So, there are decent amount of background that you can choose from. You can see right there. You can change it to white or you can go ahead and pick a photo from your phone or library or just take one with your camera which is actually kind of neat. Some of the settings that you get, you can it just by shaking which I show you. You can save at your photo album. You can draw with another user and the general options really are just to turn the sound on or off.
And the sound is just really annoying and scratching—you get when you are drawing and all that you hear with that sounds like in case you—let’s go ahead and go back to the drawing and pick the color super annoying because say you don’t like your picture, you want to erase it, just do a little—sort of shake and your picture goes away. Just a short video of a pretty cool application and that is fun just to do it all and get out of some stress whatever you want. Write a note to yourself just sort of a fun thing I do.
