aRt2Day2.5 Fun Draw, Paint, Share
aRt2Day v3.0 is the 3rd version of this simple, basic fun drawing Android application, originally designed as a fun learning tool for kids and family.* Now artists will find it more versatile.
This release is Special, by popular demand. The entire drawing interface was overhauled, making it more productive, in terms of space utility, not to mention an array of a whole new set of tools with greater user flexibility. However, some of the old tools have been retained, such as the Share Image & Share Text interface. The Crop Tool has also been retained but with some modifications; now you can crop image at any arbitrary ratio of your choice: Landscape, 16:9; Portrait or Square, or 4:3; In the previous version you could only crop a Square shape.
The Brush Tool has undergone tremendous change, from an option of only 6 brush sizes to choose from, to Slider range anything between 1 - 100 brush sizes! And to compliment this wide range of brush sizes, The 12 Color Palette has been replaced by a complete Color Wheel, with all the colors of the rainbow available, from solid hue to white, and from dark to light, with accompanying transparency settings enabled by two sliders. The old Transparency Tool was retained, more for historic reasons than the added transparency effect, which can also be obtained directly from the Color Wheel.
Another major shift from previous versions of aRt2Day, is the introduction of Geometry Drawing. Now you can draw fixed Straight Line, Perfect Circle, Triangle, Rectangle and Square. However, if you wished to manually draw shapes, then the Draw Shapes interface would serve just that. The Draw Shapes interface provides an Options Menu dropdown from top right, where you could choose what Mode to draw shapes: Perfect Circle, Oval, Straight Line, Right Triangle, Isosceles Triangle, either using Outline-Type or Fill-Type; the Normal Mode lets you draw figures, shapeless lines and curves as you wish.
The Draw Pattern Tool has been retained, but with some modifications; now the patterns are hidden from screen, and can be invoked by the Pattern Button, which displays all 8 Patterns in a Dialog asking you to Choose a Pattern. The idea is to first select your Brush Size, then Choose a Pattern and draw, paint on the canvass. The effect is still as much as the previous version, you'll love it.
We are continually working to keep improving usability, utility and cyber fun!
