How does this work?
Clicking the “Test drive now” button launches a copy of this app on Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2), a web service that provides on-demand compute capacity in the cloud for developers. When you interact with the simulated phone using your mouse and keyboard, we send those inputs over the Internet to the app running on Amazon EC2 — just like your mobile device would send a finger tap to the app. Our servers then send the video and audio output from the app back to your computer. All this happens in real time, allowing you to explore the features of the app as if it were running on your mobile device.

3.0 out of 5 stars OK drawing app but not the best we have! February 16, 2012
Verified Purchase
This is a simple painting app with brushes and the ability to change the brush size, shape and paint color with a few other options. This app does what it states it will do and it does it pretty well.

Unfortunately I own about 7 different drawing and painting apps and there are several better than this one. This app works well but it doesn't have the flexibility and tool bar of Drawing Pad. Drawing Pad has set the high bar of the apps I have used and I find its easy selection of tools and colors to be by far the best drawing app that I have used. It offers multiple drawing tools and easy color selection that lets you put the detail into your picture the way you want it to look.

When I review something I can't help but compare it to similar products, or in this case apps, and think which one is better and would be the first one I would turn on to use. While Doodler is a fairly good app is falls short of a couple of other apps I would use. I have limited storage space on my Kindle Fire and only the top apps will survive and stay resident in the device memory.

1.0 out of 5 stars Look at the Market's version of this "ad free" app.... February 16, 2012
Verified Purchase
It's quite clear as to the intentions of the permissions of this app, and it's not to share your doodle with others. Go take yourself a quick look at the Google Market version of this app to see what the developer wants in return for the privilege of you paying for an app. And if you still haven't fallen off your chair, take a peek at the FREE version of the app on Market, where it even wants to start and run on the boot. WHAT DOODLE APP needs to run on the boot?? Take a look at the permissions over on Market and you'll see exactly what it wants permission to do as well, then decide for yourself what the intentions are for your private data.

Since it's clear from the app's own description that "some" permissions were intentionally removed for the FAOTD debut, don't be surprised if they're steathily returned to this app on a near-future update, where it's less likely you'll notice, if at all, any new permissions requested for this app.

As it stands now, however, after seeing what I saw by comparing the 3 different versions, I don't believe this developer intends to make the bulk of his money off the sale price of the app, but rather from the sale of the users' data to who knows who.

Just what you're willing to put up with to have yet another doodle app on your device is up to you. Good luck!

It's not fair to the developer to give her a bad rating. This app does what it promises. If you're upset with amazon's choice, this is not the forum to complain.

4.0 out of 5 stars glad i tried this! February 16, 2012

this is the best Doodle app ive seen. the colors on my fire are super vivid and the random Color brush option is fun. can really make some nice abstract art. the sample photos don't do this app justice. my first Doodle looks better than them.

5.0 out of 5 stars review the app February 16, 2012
five stars, it does exactly what it says. I don't need another drawing app. this review is to try and off set all those idiots that are giving it low ratings because they don't want a drawing app. If you don't want a drawing app, don't download it and don't review it. if you cant wait for an app that you want to be faotd then go buy the one that you want.

4.0 out of 5 stars **UPDATED REVIEW** February 16, 2012
Verified Purchase
This is actually is pretty nice, simple & easy to use drawing app. If you're the creative type, you might enjoy some of its neat features such as the glow & embossing brushes. You can also change the size & thickness of the brush, as well. I especially liked the thinnest brush. I haven't seen one this thin in any other drawing app as of yet. I also loved that I didn't need to keep returning to the color box each time I made a doodle. This is a most irritating issue in even the best of all 5 drawing apps I have tried. The colors are vivid and really pop on the Kindle Fire.
Overall, I had surprised myself with the amount of time I'd spent with this app. Although, I did find the app much easier to use with a stylus on my Kindle Fire. It can't be moved to SD but, it's a small app, taking up only 1mb of space. Requires open network for sharing of your work.
As for the nay sayers: This is a review, not an Amazon complaint department. Amazon doesn't owe you anything. It's free! Don't like the FAOTD? Then move along & wait to give your REVIEW on the app you've actually downloaded & have USED.
By the way? There are NEW Kindle Fire users everday. Although, some of us, like myself, have seen 4 or 5 FAOTD Drawing apps since Kindle Fires' release in mid November; NEW users HAVE NOT. Doodler may very well be the first free drawing app they have seen!
Oh, and, I understand we all make mistakes now & again but, it would be helpful for some of you to proof read what you're going to post before you hit that Sumbit button. Thanks!

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice! February 16, 2012
Finally a drawing app with a fine tip brush! Love to doodle and these apps are great for that. Pretty vibrant colors will make doodling a pleasure.

This type of app is so much more appealing to me than zombies, warfare, etc. Thank you, Amazon for giving us apps that fit everyone's wants!!!!!

Works great on the Nexus also.
