Enjoy doodling and spending countless minutes sharing said doodles in apps like Draw Something? You'll love Didlr for Windows Phone and now Windows 8.1. The app, should you not be familiar with the name, is a cross-platform social network enabling people to draw whatever they wish on a canvas and sharing that work with others.
Already available for Windows Phone (and we strongly urge you to download it), the Windows 8 version of Didlr acts pretty much identical to its Windows Phone counterpart. You fire up the app, login with your account information (unless you wish to continue browsing anonymously) and get creative with the array of tools available.
And I was told as a child I wasn't artistic enough...
Since it's all cross-platform, everything is loaded from the cloud, no matter which device you're using. The above screenshot shows a Windows Phone Didl displayed on the Windows 8 app. Here's what the app looks like on the phone:
You can see some real gems by other users (see examples in this very article), but there's a handy "Best Didls" where you can browse through some simply breath-taking designs. It's a great social network with some awesome ideas implemented. A perfect example would be how you can effectively see just how each Didl was created with the automatic playback - really handy for picking up some tips and tricks too!
If you've used the Windows Phone version of Didlr, you'll feel right at home with the Windows 8 app. You have the usual pen colours and sized tips, as well as see--thru and extra smoothing options. Then there are multiple layers, zooming and the trusty undo feature. Another really neat part of Didlr is how you can save drafts and return to them later - don't feel pressured into getting the drawing published before your flight lands.
