SyncSpace: the Drawing Extravaganza!

11/01/11  |  Posted by Keri Svoboda  |  Posted in Digital Canvas - Apps & Accessories

One of the best FREE applications that I've seen for freshman students at CIA. Just to start, I recommend this application to all the freshman students taking a community art class right now at the Cleveland institute of art. Sync Space utilizes the functionality of a basic drawing program with the social networking found in Facebook and Twitter. This is the application that you freshmen have been waiting for! The artist has the ability to play a drawing game with their friends, play a game of hangman, or plan out a collaborative project with their fellow students in real time. That's right, real time (provided that you have an internet connection). This means that as soon as you put a mustache on your friends' Mona Lisa, they'll know about it.  Not only that, you can send your finished works to Facebook and Twitter for critiques! I know that doesn't sound appealing to you freshmen, but it's a big part of the artistic process. The only downside that I can see, for those who don't understand it, is that SyncSpace is a vector program, like Adobe Illustrator and not like Adobe Photoshop. This means that there is no digital transparencies or ability to import photos (add photos to the sync space). This app also does not have an undo button and there is a tendency to accidentally delete someone else's work. This application gets 5 out of 5 points in my creative and useful books. So what are you waiting for?! Go download it! SyncSpace in iTunes - FREE
