A hands-on look at DrawingBoard Pro for the BlackBerry PlayBook

By James Richardson on 26 Jun 2012 02:38 pm EDT

There are a few drawing/painting options for the BlackBerry PlayBook but DrawingBoard Pro landed in App World a while ago while very simplistic, has some nice features. As you will see in the above video I am no artist but that doesn't matter as the application allows you to draw over any image you have in your PlayBook gallery. Lots of fun to be had if you're feeling artistic.


  • Easy to use interface
  • Adjustable pen size
  • Adjustable pen opacity
  • Custom pen colors (with full Color Range to choose from)
  • Unlimited Undo & Redo
  • Eraser option
  • Save image with different quality options (Low, Medium, High) in JPEG format
  • Custom Background Images
  • Custom Background Color (with full Color Range to choose from)

Whether you download this app for adult use of for your kids to play with you can't really go wrong. In fact it is probably the easiest and most user friendly application of its type that I have used on any platform. And at 99c it won't break the bank.

For more information and to purchase DrawingBoard Pro

A hands-on look at DrawingBoard Pro for the BlackBerry PlayBook


Looks fun.

I would really like an Etch a Sketch app. I wonder if Ohio Art would license that interface? You could add some really nice options like pen sizes and colors. Image saves. Layers. But NOT pin lift. That would be cheating.

Wow. Another top tier enterprise productivity app. Way to maintain that laser focus on the target market...what is it again?

Of course it is focused on enterprise, have you never heard "back to the drawing board", lots of companies will find a productive use for this.

You could put moustaches and horns on photos of the boss.. how's that not enterprise related?

Seeing apps like this on the PlayBook is a good sign that developers are interested in the platform and it makes the devices more appealing to consumers. It's good for the platform any way you look at it.

I'm gonna get this for my PlayBook looks great!

....would love to see these types of apps for the touchscreen OS7.1 devices
