1.0 out of 5 stars Poor February 14, 2014
Verified Purchase
This is another procedural drawing app which lets you draw with fancy brushes. That means the brush heads aren't restricted to lines & dots, but they can be any one of the "patterns" the app has; for instance, if you choose the triangle shape brush head (brush type), you will be drawing lines of little triangles on the screen instead of, well, just lines. It is kind of like drawing with a rubber stamp instead of a pen.

Here are some of the annoyances I found from the short session I had with it:
(1)* Exporting drawings to your device's gallery does NOT work! And good luck trying to find where OmniSketch's gallery is because it certainly isn't in commonly accessible places like DCIM or Pictures or any OmniSketch folder on your SD card! This is a real deal-breaker for me.
(2) No zooming support for the canvas at all, so all drawings are limited to the screen size of your device
(3) No multi-touch support.
(4) You cannot just save your drawing and continue, you can only save and return to its Gallery. (Note: saving here means saving to the app's internal gallery wherever that is, not your device's gallery.)
(5) It needs internet access for (optional) uploading your drawings to OmniSketch's website & fetching expanded help, BUT it also has Flurry which will without fail always try to connect to the internet when you load the app. (Nevertheless, this app runs fine without internet access.)

It makes me sad just writing about this app. So, do yourself a favour, don't waste your time on it even if it's free. If you would like to play with procedural drawing, I suggest you search for Sketcher FREE in the Play Store and try that one instead - at least you can SAVE or SHARE your drawings with it! Happy V-Day to you all. Cheers!

This is much more than a simple paint program and the process, much less as well.

You get a rich selection of, for example, different patterns that are drawn as you swipe your finger across the screen, different ways to have the colors of a line you are drawing interact with one that is already there (blend mode), and options to create multiple at the same time (a kaleidoscope-like effect).

If you are trying to create something interesting from random actions then there is potential. If you are trying to do something "intentional" then expect to take a fair amount of time to master these tools and their application. The listing shows a Picasso like picture as an example of what can be done with OmniSletch. In my mind it is more of what can be done *despite* it.

This might also be a fun program for kids but I don't think so. My young daughter still enjoys software designed to produce random, colorful images but the controls on this one are much to complex to make that enjoyable.

Perhaps, however, you our your children would enjoy it though. There are not questionable permissions or malware to get in your way if you want to find out.

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't Bother February 14, 2014
Verified Purchase
I didn't think it would be fun simply because I read all the reviews & there were
problems, it seemed, with every platform (or, OS, if you prefer). But at last I tried it. After all, it IS free, today. However, everything already said is true about the tools / brushes / color menu being counter-intuitive. In a word, it's "clunky" at best, and that's me being nice. I am deleting it after having tried it on my Kindle Fire HD 7" screen & writing this review.

Talk about frustrating, if I needed this much aggravation in my life, I'd have taken up brain surgery.

I expect apps to run as promised "out of the box," and having a FAOTD spotlight has to be great for the developer. How about the developer create a usable product first, Amazon?

4.0 out of 5 stars Works just fine for me; has Flurry Analytics, though February 14, 2014
Verified Purchase
OmniSketch works just fine for me, and while it's not entirely intuitive, it is good enough. It does have documentation, outside the canvas unfortunately, but it is there. For those of you having issues, it may be hardware or OS version that's causing you trouble. I tried it out on my XTE Supreme (VM) on Android 4.1.2 (Jelly Bean).

It did crash ones, but other than that, the app works as advertised. I was able to save my sketch, export it to the gallery, and export it easily to the online gallery where it took a few minutes to show up, which explains the internet access permission.

One thing to keep in mind is that since this is a FAotD app, the developer's server probably won't be able to handle the influx for most of the day. This is a temporary thing, folks, so just keep that in mind of your online upload doesn't show up or doesn't work.

The only downsides are that it is a bit basic, the documentation is hard to find, the toolbar likes to disappear and is hard to get to reappear, and the fact that it does include Flurry Analytics.

It is these reasons why I docked it a star. Other than that, it's a fun app, though I think the price point for it would work better at 99-cents instead, since it may need some more features and work to compete successfully at the $1.99 price point.

3.0 out of 5 stars Other reviews WRONG! You can save drawing to device! February 14, 2014
Verified Purchase
First of all I want to state that the other reviews that say you can't save your picture to your device are WRONG! I have a Kindle Fire HD 7 inch and here's how I was able to save my drawings to my device. First save the drawing as normal which is by tapping on the symbol that looks like a floppy disc. This will be on the screen where you are actually drawing. Then go to the main menu of the app by either tapping on the "X" or by tapping on the back arrow of your Kindle. Next tap the drawing that you want to save onto your device so a blue border is around it. Then tap on the symbol on the bottom of the app that shows a piece of paper with an arrow pointing up on it. A prompt will pop up and select "Export to Gallery". This is what will save the drawing to your Kindle! The drawings will be put into the "Camera" folder on your Kindle which is accessible by going into the 'Photos' menu on your Kindle!

Now for reviewing the actual app. I see no difference from this app from other drawing apps that I have used for the Kindle. I don't think it's worth to spend money on it because there are so many other apps for the Kindle that do the same exact thing but are free! The only difference I can see is that this app has more brush choices and there are no ads but besides that it's your standard drawing app. Also (as you can see by reading other reviews) it's not that easy saving drawings to your device but if you follow my instructions posted at the start of this review you shouldn't have any trouble. You also have to tinker around with it to see what each brush and choice does. It's one of those apps where you really should tap on the information button because you won't know what everything is unless you do. I used the app to make three different drawings now and one of the times it froze on me and I had to close down the app all the way. I don't think it's the best made app but it's simple and good for people who like doodling.

Thx Rich! I just re-wrote my review and upgraded it from 1-star to 4-stars and included more descriptive info now that I can use the app as intended. Mentioned your responsiveness in the bug fix too. Dusty Jacquet
