[prMac.com] Paris, France - The heart of painting apps for iPad and iPhone is about the brush strokes. And their quality is not equal between different apps you can find on the App Store. A brush stroke can be defined by 3 particularities: responsiveness, smoothness and dynamic brush head effects.
1) Responsiveness: is the short delay between the finger speed and the painted stroke on the screen. On the same device, 2 apps can have 2 very different speeds of brush strokes. It's a question of programming.
2) Smoothness: an easy test can be done by anybody. Open your painting app, take a brush or a pencil, and quickly draw a circle on your device's screen. The basic strokes will show broken lines, like a train running inside a curve. These broken lines will disappear when smoothness is added to the strokes.
3) Brush heads: all brushes don't have the same optical effects. These effects are created by 2 elements: the form of the head, and the dynamic effects. These 2 elements could be added one by one or all together.
In fact, brush heads are not only made with simple shapes: circle, square, triangle... Their forms are in fact very rich and various. Brush dynamic effect is about the quantity of color loaded in the brush and the different movements given to the brush in the same single stroke.
All these advanced particularities have been successfully added to Drawing Box in order to create realistic effects and give a large choice of brushes, pencils and other painting tools. So that users can have a comfort feeling when they draw a stroke on the iPad screen. The quality and the effects of the strokes will stay equal whichever the previous number of strokes.
In addition, painting with Drawing Box is more funny, many creativity brushes are provided to the users, including stickers for youngters. Have no fear to try all the tools, paint and draw at will, make whatever you want, even lots of mistakes... the undo levels are practically unlimited.
