5.0 out of 5 stars Udraw : Fun drawing tool, January 12, 2012
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: uDraw Game tablet with uDraw Studio: Instant Artist - Playstation 3 (Video Game)
The Udraw Tablet (I only have the PS3 version) Is a great little tool for sketching and playing around with drawing. It also comes with some pretty fun (and challenging) mini games utilizing the features of the Udraw. Within The first hour I found I enjoyed the experience of using it and was having a lot of fun, but I have a few notes for anyone that really wants to sketch with it.

Things I really liked:
- It works well after you get the hang of it and it looks like they really had some fun with the variety of things you can do.
- The mini games were actually challenging; they use the motion sensitivity, tilting the tablet, and the stylus itself.
- The paint program has all the tools you need to actually paint a picture(!), pressure sensitivity, different brushes, a gradient color palette, custom color sets you can save and different background surfaces.
- multi-touch for pan and zoom

Quirky things:
- Its not really a tablet, not in the standard sense most people are used to. Its a touch pad, you can move it with your finger ( which is kinda nice at times depending on how you use it), and it has an attached button stylus. Its easy to use, you just put the stylus to the surface and draw. The trick is how the button works; when you first press down it clicks the button. After the button clicks the pressure sensitivity kicks in and you can use the drawing styles types (opacity, brush size) by varying how hard you press down. Its disappointing that its not a real tablet, but the core functionality is all there and very usable.
- Two buttons on the udraw aren't used while painting and could be used for common swaps: color A and B, or Paint and eraser or paint tool and eyedropper. It would be great to see an update that added a way to set things to these two unused buttons

The only thing I didn't like:
- The surface responds to being touched, even when the pen is in use. Don't rest your hand on it or the drawing surface moves around responding to the multi-touch of the pen and your palm.
