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 | Xatik Group

And now on to a quick description.

Quote:

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 we’ll 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!

Quote:

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

Awesome thanks! Share it with your friends




Just a random note, since we at Xatik Group do not own Android Tablets, we were unable to do exhaustive testing. We apologize if the app does not look as good on a tablet.

Well we've had a few suggestions and we're working hard to implement the updates.

We have found one force close so far when a few invalid commands are entered.

We are hoping to have a new version of the app soon. Thank you everyone for testing!

If you have guys have any additional comments please feel free to share!

Droid Draw has been updated with three new features and a bug fix! Get the latest version of Droid Draw (v1.1.0 Beta) on the Play Store!

New Features
  • Draggable commands: You can now re-position the order commands are run by holding the drag icon on the right and moving the command up or down.
  • Auto scroll to new command: After you insert a new command, Droid Draw will automatically scroll to the new command
  • Wakelock during Animation: Frustrated when your phone shut off during an animation? We now keep your phone awake while Droid Draw is animating. Three seconds after Droid Draw is finished, the phone should go to sleep!

Bug Fix
  • There was a known force close in the keyboard activity if a certain invalid command was entered. We hope to have that fixed now.
