Hangouts On The Web Learning A New Trick - Sketch A Message

It looks like Hangouts on the web is learning a new trick. Some users are reporting that Hangouts can now sketch a message, drawing with a variety of brush widths and colors on a little scratchpad, which is sent to the user on the other end of the conversation as an image. To sketch, users need only hover over the camera icon, click on the pencil icon that appears, then draw away. Once a sketch has been sent, it can apparently still be edited, as shown in the gif below sent to us by a kind tipster.

Fortunately, with the advent dual-digitizers capable of supporting pressure-sensitive styli - like those found in Samsung's Galaxy Note 10.1 - tablets have become a much more practical art tool. Hardware is nothing without the software to take advantage of it, though. Enter ArtFlow, a new drawing app for Android that comes with, in addition to a number of effects, support for advanced styli baked in.

Draw Race 2 Lets You Feel All The Thrill Of Racing In Your Finger Tip

Hey guys! It's a game that's not tower defense or puzzle-themed! Draw Race 2 is a new take on the racing game genre. Whereas most racing games on mobile devices use your accelerometer for steering, Draw Race 2 opts for a top-down view, tracing the race track to direct your vehicle. It's certainly a novel approach to the problem of racing controls on mobile devices.

The apparent second version of this game includes tons of challenges and skill games to test your ability to run your finger around your screen. The game also boasts realistic car physics, which is great because when I'm driving, I love to feel the momentum as my car comes around a corner in my index finger tip.

Draw Something's "Fresh New Look" Could Use Some Help, But A Few Tweaks Could Make All The Difference

With the introduction of Draw Something's "fresh new look!" update a couple of days ago came many design changes, not all of them entirely great. Just for fun, I decided to take a shot at making Draw Something's design slightly "fresher," or at least slightly more sensible. Just like my last design critique, I'll start by taking a look at what issues the current design has, and then make a few suggestions (with some quick mockups) as to what I think could be improved.

What's Wrong

To be completely fair, Draw Something's new look isn't terrible. It's just not what it could be.
