"Markers fever"

Reviewed by / Jun 27, 2012

Markers is a simple and multitouch drawing app for Android

Since Galaxy Note was released, there's a drawing fever on Android: its S pen showed the World that's possible to create master pieces on your mobile device. However, we don't need either a Galaxy Note nor a S Pen to draw in our smartphones or tablets. There are apps that make it real. Markers is one of those apps.

Markers provides you a color palette and different brushes to draw and paint with your fingertips. It's multitouch which means that you can draw using two, three, four (and so on) fingers, up to the limits of your device. What's more, it provided a good-looking and easy-to-use layout: you can paint, draw, switch brushes, undo and clear the screen with a few taps. You can even load pictures and draw over them. Touch the market to hide/show drawing options.

Once your master-piece is done, you can share it by using any of the sharing resources installed in your device. Simplicity and native mobile interface to show off your talent. What else? Highly recommendable.

Developer's original description available here
Markers is a simple, multitouch, pressure-sensitive drawing app. Some of its features include:

  • Pressure sensitivity that works with most Android devices: As more of your finger or capacitive stylus touches the glass, Markers will draw a thicker line. NOTE: It may take a minute or two of continuous drawing for Markers to adjust to your device’s touch panel, so be patient! (If your device has an active stylus, like the Galaxy Note or HTC Flyer, the true stylus pressure will be used instead.)

  • Multitouch painting: Two fingers make two lines, three make three, and so on, up to the limits of your device (typically 5 simultaneous touches for phones and 10 for tablets).

  • Kid-friendly interface: Every pen size and color is on-screen; multitouch drawing means accidental touches (such as kid hands on the edges of the display) won't prevent any little fingers from painting.

  • Plays well with others: Share your drawings to other apps, and share images into Markers to draw on top of them.

  • [New in 1.2] Pan and zoom: By far the #1 most requested Markers feature! Tap the hand tool to switch into zoom mode; use one finger to scroll and two to zoom.

  • [New in 1.2] Adjustable brushes: Longpress a brush and drag to adjust the minimum and maximum widths.

  • [New in 1.2] Android 4.4 (KitKat) immersive mode: When you tap the Markers icon to hide the palettes, the status and navigation bars hide too; you can use the entire screen to draw. Tap the icon to show everything again.

FAQ
  • Why is my drawing all black when I save it to Gallery? — The drawing is actually on a transparent background, so you're seeing Gallery's black background through it. When you load it back into Markers or send it to another app, you'll see that the drawing is intact. If you'd prefer an opaque background, longpress on a color swatch in the palette to set the paper color.

  • What's up with the pressure sensitivity on my device? — See http://code.google.com/p/markers-for-android/wiki/DeviceSupport for known issues about individual devices.

    This is beautifully simple and fluid, it's by far my favourite "quick sketch" app and with a few additions could easily be the killer drawing app. Would love to see layers and a bigger canvas size.

    Action bar is partially hidden because of the status bar. I sae it while sending a screenshot to the app, in order to edit it.

    It is a little bit buggy on the Tegra note 7 and appears to be sharing memory with other art apps. Perfectly understandable because this tablet uses a different stylus system. I applaud the developers efforts he would do well to try one of these little tablets because of the incredible speed. I would like to see the Play Store implementing some of Jaron Lanier's theories on micropayments so that w

    one of my favorite painting app on my SPen samsung device. i have a suggestion: allow option to assign actions to hardware volume up/down buttons. eg. vol down to toggle toolbars. vol up to Undo. useful since our thumb is naturally positioned there.
