What's new

*** I can't respond to reviews so please email if you have questions or a problem with the app ***

Updated now...
- iPhone 6 Plus bug fixes
- Fix font picker being off by one in photo extension and photo extension goes black less often :)
- Improve text performance for max size (fit to box) mode
- Bug and crash fixes
- Clone stamp tool remembers position when changing size or softness

Updated recently...
- I moved some of the main buttons around to help things be more clear. The share button is now in the top left next to settings. Starting new drawings is now in the top right. The layers tool is now on the bottom toolbar, which has fewer icons. I hope this is less confusing and easier to navigate once you get used to it.
- Snaptee! Order a T-shirt with your art on it!
- *iOS 8* Quickly draw on a photo and add text using the new You Doodle photo editing extension
- *iOS 8* Save and load from other supported apps
- *iOS 8* Shared settings between You Doodle apps on same device
- iPhone 6 - Landscape mode for text, stamps and shapes
- Normal, lock and anchor option for clone stamp tool
- The max text size will now fit the text to the box
- Turning off allow zooming out option adds a little padding around the draw view to help with working near the edges
- Recently used fonts move to the top
- Bug squashing
- Import photos from Instagram directly inside You Doodle
- Remove fleksy since they are now an iOS 8 keyboard extension. Download their app to continue using Fleksy.

On Deck...
I’m gathering user feedback and will implement changes based on the feedback and also I have a few surprises in store :)

Updated recently...
- *** I've moved the use an image for your brush function to the color wheel, import icon is in the bottom right when you tap the color wheel ***
- New and improved color picker. I spent 50 hours of my life creating this color picker just for you and I hope it serves you well. I believe it is one of the best on iOS. You can tap and hold on your favorite colors to move them to the front of the list or delete them. You can also manage all your custom textures in the color picker.
- Allow zooming in even more (4000% on iPhone and 8000% on iPad)
- Fixed some bugs where draw tools wouldn't draw at high zoom scales and tiny widths
- Fixed a bug where frame tool would snap back to original position when scaling
- Automatically detects whether to save as PNG or JPG depending on if transparent pixels exist. No more need to mess with the PNG / JPG setting.
- Single tap to add shapes (as well as dragging your finger)
- The arrow shape head can be tweaked by changing the inner and outer width
- Fix crash with paint bucket tool in multi-person draw mode
- Fix opacity filter to match exactly when tapping done
- Yet more blurry text tweaks (legends and tables should have crisper text too). Always remember that the larger your image the better your text will look. If you've got something like a 512x256 image your text will look really bad most likely. Use the tools icon (bottom right) and then resize your image bigger for better looking text.
- Fix some sketchbook bugs
- Fix issue with jagged text outlines
- All new backgrounds pack! This will keep growing constantly so please send background / clipart ideas to
