Last Friday, Christopher Poole, the creator of the popular image sharing website 4chan, released an app for the iPad called DrawQuest. The app is available at the iTunes App Store as a free download and is compatible with all versions of the iPad. DrawQuest has been well received and here is a short preview of the app.
The design and the user interface
The application has a very simple interface. Menu items and the tools are colorful and have a very childlike feel to them. According to the developer, Christopher Poole, the app has been designed to inspire the child in grown people. He also stated that the design philosophy was to make the app as interactive as possible.
The app is optimized to work on landscape mode and the title is displayed at the top. Every day, a new Quest is pushed and it can be accessed through the notification center. The image editor is has all the tools stacked at the bottom. The extended menu gives you the lists of Quests, your user profile, app settings and activities from other Questers.
Compatibility and download
DrawQuest is compatible with the fourth generation, third generation, second generation iPad and the original iPad running iOS 5.1 and above. The app has a footprint of about 15 MB and can be downloaded from https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/drawquest-free-daily-drawing/id576917425
Due to the possibilities of crude humor, mild profanity and mild violence, Apple has certified the app with a 9+ rating.
