About You Doodle draw on photos text

You Doodle app lets you get real creative by allowing you to draw photos you can share through Facebook, Dropbox, and Instagram, among others. You Doodle has built in access to tutorial videos on a wide array of topics, relating to navigating through all the effects and features of the app. With all the stamps, frames, effects, and the ability to create online drawing jam sessions with your friends, You Doodle is a fun drawing app. 
The app can be used easilyy to crop a pic or add a greeting or whatever to a picture. The features offered in the app itself seem like a fun/clean way to create images to send to Grandma, or print out for school projects. 
The fact that it can do so much makes me want it to do even more - more fine-tune control over the pens and markers, the ability to add more layers, etc. It could also be a little more intuitive - there are many features I just had no clue how to use and no one wants to watch a video for every thing they do. But even with that, I highly recommend this app and the money spent on the full version is well worth it.
