DrawType Keyboard

Theodore Watson
DrawType is a Keyboard Extension that allows you to draw images and paste them into apps that support text and images like, Messages and Mail. Use DrawType to reply to friends when a hand drawn picture might be quicker or more personal than text.

NOTE: To a few people sadly leaving one star reviews. Allow Full Access is required by Apple for the Copy/Paste functionality and Save To Camera Roll features in DrawType. DrawType does not store, log or transmit any information of any kind, but you will still see a warning appear. There is unfortunately nothing I can do about this requirement so please be kind! :-)
