I always enjoyed art at school and have since developed an interest in digital illustration. Being out and about as much as I am though, it's difficult for me to find the time to sit on the computer and get creative.

Step forward JazzyDraw, an illustration app that allows you to set your creative juices loose on your Palm device. The program is armed with a few tools that let you scribble straight onto the page in a number of fun ways.

Beware that you'll need to install the plua.prc file that comes in the zipped download in order to get the program to work. Also beware that JazzyDraw demands a fair amount of memory (around 4Mb) in order to run properly, so you may need to shut down some apps or delete files before you start to free up space.

Once you've got going, it's quite good fun. You can play around with a number of easily-selectable tools, selecting the fill colour, line properties, drawing shapes, zooming, tinting, and more. While seasoned digital artists may be disappointed by the lack of advanced drawing tools, this is a good one for kids.

You won't create any masterpieces, but JazzyDraw is OK for doodling while you're sat on the bus.

Changes

  • The timing of the creation of the picture album directory now occurs on start-up of the application if the directory is missing. This change fixes a save error when the directory was missing.

JazzyDraw is a color drawing application with a variety of options such as: fill, spray, lines, shapes, zoom, tint, copy-paste, etc. It seems to be one of the few freeware drawing applications to work correctly with the Treo color selector. It appears that Palm changed the color handling when they went with the newer versions which broke many of the older applications.

JazzyDraw will NOT work unless you first install the FREEWARE pluart.prc or plua.prc from the plua-1.1 ZIP file. It has a built-in limit of 10 pictures, unless you get creative with third-party screen capture tools.
