    Hello everyone! Xatik Group is proud to present Droid Draw, the Turtle Graphics remake for Android!



    If you would like a full description of the app please visit our website. Droid Draw Beta | Xatik Group

    And now on to a quick description.

    Draw amazing complex shapes and patterns while learning the basics of programming with Droid Draw! Droid Draw is a twist on the original Turtle Graphics app that uses the LOGO programming language.

    Not sure what Turtle Graphics and LOGO programming is? The original Turtle Graphics allowed a user to enter commands which represented what would be drawn out out on a Cartesian plane. Droid Draw brings this same functionality to Android users.

    Not sure what to do? Make sure to check out the help section in the app. We have information on how to use the app and what every command does. Also, we are constantly adding to our website with interesting tips and tricks!

    FEATURES
    Besides just being able to enter commands and create an image, we have added some extra features:

    ** Animation: You can see where the pen is with the helpful DroidDraw mascot holding your pen.
    ** Sharing and Import/Export: Create an amazing image? Share it with your friends, set it as a background, or even send it as an email to us and well display it on our website! Want to share how you made the image? Export the script and email that too!
    ** Refresh: Have some random values in your code? Hit the replay button to generate a new image.
    ** Zoom/Drag: Is your picture too small or in the wrong area? We have include pinch-to-zoom and dragging capabilities.
    ** Quick Command Entry: We have created a custom keyboard to make entering commands and values simple.
    ** Drag and Drop Commands: Put a command in the wrong spot? Simply drag it to where you want!
    ** Wakelock during Animation: Want to watch the full animation without touching your phone? We now keep the phone awake ONLY during the animation!
    Permissions

    ** We require storage permission to cache the images you draw and share. You can view the saved images in this folder: /sdcard/Android/data/com.xatik.app.droiddraw.client/

    ** Wakelock Permission: This is required to keep the phone awake ONLY during animation

    Hello Beta Testers!

    This week, ending Friday the 17th, will be the final week of Beta testing for Droid Draw. This will have given everyone two weeks to test out our app and find any issues or suggestions they might have.

    Once the Beta testing period has ended, we will shift our focus to fixing the issues found, adding some new features, and prepping the first official version of Droid Draw for release on August 31st.

    Some of the issues and features that will be fixed/added for the official release are:
    • The redraw button on the image page does not work on phones with high resolution screens (ex. Galaxy Nexus), this will be fixed.
    • Addition of landscape keyboard.
    • Addition of two new commands. One to set the thickness of the pen and another to set the direction of the pen directly (instead of turning the pen a certain number of degrees from it's current position, you can directly set the pen to a given degree with respect to the screen).
    • Addition of tutorial pop-ups.
    • Addition for the ability to save an image as a wallpaper.
    • Addition for the ability to import/export scripts (ex. to share a script with others).
    • Addition for the ability to share screenshot with Xatik. We will then go through all of the submissions and put our favorite ones on our website for all to see!

    We want this app to be the best it can possibly be, so if you have expierenced any other issues or have any suggestions for Droid Draw, please reply to this thread or go to our contact page and send us a message.

    Stay tuned for more info as we approach our first official release!

    OMG I used to absolutely LOVE this program. I learned it in elementary school and then had a class that revisited it in high school. I remember making a mini golf game in high school. I'll have to try it out. Thank you!
