Those familiar with Grafiti
know that drawing pictures for your friends can be a lot more entertaining, and easier to get the point across, than trying to spell it out. Thatís the idea behind a new free jailbreak tweak called Doodle Message
by iOS developer Quisc
Just like Grafiti, Doodle Message lets you draw pictures to send to your friends via the Messages application. To do so, just tap on the Camera button in the Messages application to reveal a new Doodle option:
After tapping on the Doodle button, youíll be able to go to town and draw whatever you want. You can use the pen and paper button at the left of the interface to choose your marker color and stroke width, and the two buttons next to that allow you to undo and redo marker strokes. The trash can button will allow you to completely delete all of your drawing.
If you tap on the Photo button next to the trash can, the tweak will give you the option to add a photo to the interface that you can draw on. This is great for annotating photographs, or if you end up taking a picture of someoneís car and want to scratch out their tag number, itís great for that too!
Tapping on the photo button gives you exactly three options Ė you can take a photo to annotate, you can select a photo already in your Camera Roll to annotate, or you can remove a photo from the interface if you added one already and decided you didnít want to use it.
When youíre done drawing, whether you inserted a photo or not, you can send the drawing to the recipient. It is sent as MMS or as a picture message whether youíre text messaging or youíre using iMessage.
For a free tweak, Doodle Message is pretty impressive. The interface isnít quite as gorgeous as Grafitiís, however Grafiti doesnít come with the ability to insert photographs and draw on them. On the other hand, Grafiti works with many applications, while Doodle Message only works with the Messages and biteSMS applications. That being said, Doodle Message is definitely worth taking a look at if you want this functionality! The tweak has no options to configure, just install and draw.
