Drawing on the iPad








I'm working on an app for kids that requires me to draw content directly on my iPad. I found that I could only draw comfortably with a stylus. Drawing with a finger was very difficult as I always felt my hand was in the way of seeing my drawing. I tried different ones including a homemade one and liked the Pogo Sketch the best. It's around $12 and you can buy it at the Apple store or online through Amazon. At first, the clubby tip seemed awkward but I soon got used to it. The other thing that was bothering me were random marks made by the heel of my hand. I improvised a little mitt by cutting up a cotton anklet sock. I wanted something that could be made easily at home. I'm having a lot of fun with this new way of drawing. I hope to have the announcement for the launch soon.
