Description

- Thanks for all the amazing feedback - we just love to hear your thoughts, comments and ideas!

Überdoodle:

Remember the good old spirograph toy? Get nostalgic with this classic spiral drawing tool. Great for children too!
The box contains lots of colorful gears, rings and pencils - including a MAGIC rainbow pen - and an unlimited supply of (virtual) paper!
Draw spirals using the gears or simply paint directly on the paper using your finger.
Email your doodles to family and friends - or save them and use them as beautiful wallpapers for your iPad, iPhone or iPod Touch.

Super quick howto:
- Drag the active gear in circles inside a ruler to draw
- Drag ruler to the perfect spot on the paper. You can even rotate and resize the rulers using two fingers on opposing sides of the ruler
- Change gears and rings (by dragging a gear onto a ring)
- Choose color by tapping
- Tap a hole on a gear to place the pencil in the hole
- Select pencil size using the slider
- Tap menu button to save doodle, email or start a new one

Try drawing a pattern, tapping on one of the arrows on a gear and draw the pattern again. The two patterns will be perfectly aligned. This can help you create some really awesome effects!

This release also contains a few bug fixes and speed improvements.

Usability improvement:
No more need for double-tapping to remove the active gear from the ring. Now you can simply drag the gear away from the center of the ring in order to remove it from the ring.

Enjoy! ;-)
