Super Simple Draw

Bao Lei
Minimalist drawing app. Supports Apple Pencil (new & old), both portrait & landscape, iPad multitasking, standard iOS share, the latest devices. Pick up & use. Like a white board or scratch paper.

• 2nd generation Apple Pencil double tap support
• Multiple window and multitasking support on iPadOS
• Original Apple Pencil support
• Simple choices (just colors and sizes)
• Draw in either landscape or portrait
• Undo and redo
• Standard iOS share/action button (copy, save, send to other messaging/social apps)
• Save square images for Instagram submission
• Grid background and lined background

Perfect for:
• Jotting down notes
• Illustrate something to friends/coworkers through drawing
• Draw/sketch something casually
• Tell stories to kids with quick illustrations
• Play quick random games with friends (e.g. draw and guess, or any simple board game you just invented)
• Practice some basic drawing skills (drawing straight line, parallel lines, circles, faces, etc)

No more:
• "Hey _____, let me show you a diagram of my idea... wait, let me create a new canvas first... wait actually let me first navigate to the right workspace... "
• or leaving a bunch of random scribbles/doodles that you have to clean up later in the "gallery" of a full-fledged drawing app, or an otherwise organized note taking app.
• trying to let the kids draw something and instead they are just placing sparkles, glitters, or unicorn stickers all over the screen

End goal:
• Replace paper. Save trees and protect our planet.
