4chan Founder's 'DrawQuest' App Now Available for the iPhone

by

DrawQuest, a social drawing app from 4chan founder Chris Poole (aka moot), is now available for download on the iPhone. First released in February of this year, the app was originally available only on the iPad.

We're pleased to announce that DrawQuest is now available for iPhone and iPod touch devices running iOS 7. We couldn't be more excited about expanding the DrawQuest community to mobile devices. Drawing, browsing, and everything else has been reimagined for mobile, so be sure to check it out!

Each day, DrawQuest users are given a new drawing prompt to complete. Daily prompts each begin with a partially filled in drawing and a creative question or suggestion, such as "What did the diver's find?" or "Carve a Jack-O'-Lantern."

Users are given a variety of tools to work with, including a paint brush, a marker, a pencil, an eraser, and a multitude of colors. Additional colors are unlocked in the app through in-app purchase or points earned through completing drawings.

Finished prompts are added to a community-wide gallery, where users can view the work of other artists, watch playbacks, share an image on a social network, and star favorite pieces.

Alongside iPhone support, DrawQuest's newest update brings a zoomable canvas, which is a useful feature for iPhone owners who need to zoom in to add detail to drawings.

Following the update, users are able to create and share their own drawing challenges that can be shared with friends and family. The app has also been given a revised look for iOS 7 and it includes a new Paint Can fill feature.

DrawQuest is a free universal app that can be downloaded from the App Store. [Direct Link]

Thanks for a hearty laugh. You wouldn't believe how long we agonized over those four tab colors.


...did the creator of 4chan just quote me on a forum? I feel like I should feel either starstruck or dirty but, truthfully, I'm just hungry.

What did the diver's find? Is that the app creators spelling it that way, or one of the users? 4chan indeed! :p
