Fun App Friday Archive
Today is Friday and I am thinking that starting today, every Friday we will share a fun app. These fun apps probably won’t make millions of dollars nor are they platforms that are built on top of other platforms, but they will be fun and will have value.
The first fun app only took me a few seconds to see both the fun and the value. It’s called draw.to and is the most simple online drawing app I’ve seen to-date. It uses HTML5 (no Flash) and works online and on the iPhone and iPad.
There isn’t much to explain with draw.to. You can pick from a few brushes and you start drawing. You can use a previous design in the gallery as a starting point as well. I found it to be pretty addicting. After you create a design, you can share it around the Web and if it receives enough shares, it will hit the main draw.to gallery.
I could see consumer brands using a white-label version of draw.to for contests – so there is a potential business model for draw.to. Thinking back in my consumer marketing days, the real power with draw.to as a contest app is that the drawings could be shared across the social networks which would drive traffic back to the contest and to the brand.
Draw.to was created by a Melbourne, Australia-based developer working part-time from January-March.
Here are a few examples of what people have drawn on draw.to — they are pretty amazing! If you create a masterpiece, leave a link in the comments and I will add it to the post.
