Simply awesome, i just love drawing with other people, not so lonely like when i draw by myself :|
but i really need a history kinda feature to see what i drew for a guy cause sometime i just forgot what i drew for him (just like most people perhaps already ask)

Good alternative of Draw Something since my phone can't play it. So way to go there.

I do agree that you shouldn't post the drawings. I draw terribly during this game so please.

Another thing...great music choices.

And last....can you add an option to fill the screen. I think it rather stinks (a) filling in the screen and (b) watching someone fill in the screen. Just as an outlook... it.

I agree about the drawings, I don't like them showing up without the user choosing to post it either. I have put in a fix for now which will put an icon in place instead :)

My favorite part about this game is that, at x50 replay speed, it makes you look like a better artist than you really are.
Least favorite part? there is no "save for later" aspect... like if you wanna take a break during free draw. but oh well. minor complaint.

great job!
