#smallerscreen  the single pixel lines are hard to see on the Note 3, especially over a noisy project. Not a priority, but with resolutions going nuts on newer devices, it might be handy to  keep it in mind in case the code has to change for that. (My old eyes are loving my Thinkpad Tablet).

I have a Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 and the single pixel lines makes any brushes that use that pretty much useless. It appears that we can't change the size like in the old version. As far as the guides like the perspective tools, I'm not so bothered with those being thin lines because we only need to be able to see those faintly but possibly the cross following the cursor could be more distinct similar to the way the horizon line is.

#saving.  I lost one.  Not that I care about that project, but after keyboard and padding, this is something users expect to "just work," and work in a way they're used to so they don't have to think about it.  If I remember right, I think an earlier (way old) version had issues like this, but v3 is great, from the user end, anyway (problematic code can end up looking pretty hacked up sometimes, so reuse might not be a good option, but it worked really well).

My #landscape is OK. It sticks with the orientation in which I start the app. Excellent as its own feature, and nice way to circumvent issues. Except for the gray frames (or whatever). Some don't grow tall enough (or scroll). The brush selector is using a huge font (and OMG, sharing a screenie to G+ was really convoluted, at best. Ended up using Samsung share and rehunting down the Organization. Oy.)

Great! The only slow thing is the autosave on close for a blank project (no slower than a non-blank), maybe 3-5 seconds, but nothing to show for it.

"... The entire text of Mien Kampf in the iTunes EULA...."  Folks, (because I'm the chipper sort) they are using a lack of user discipline (aka boring $#!+) as an exploit. Exploiting users.

Really, f--- gay marriage, this is much bigger.
 
I imagine that most of you reading this are already aware of how much the cable monopolies are threatening #netneutrality , but for anyone who isn't, this clip from John Oliver lays out perfectly what's at stake, and why we're even talking about this right now.

It's on my really old Honeycomb Thinkpad Tablet whose n-trig (sans drag that I don't really mind) is incredibly accurate, makes Wacom feel really mushy accuracy-wise. With  like a 1/3-second lag to display the ink (not surprising), it's great!  Though I do miss the stylus features. Kudos for accessibility!

Question: is it phone vs. tablet status that makes it incompatible with my old Note (my daughter's now, and I've forgotten what ROM it's running)?  GT-N7000 is a no go? Or did I back down to Gingerbread on that one (she hates when I flash it, and I may have opted for stability/stock)?  This would be a good thing to add to your web page; there for people who look for it, but not glaring at potential buyers if the Play Store (or a ROM) mucks up visibility.

I do appreciate the lovely responses, but if I was invited to test a Beta, I don't need them.  I don't know if other folk expect them.  This isn't a production app yet, so I don't consider myself a customer so much as a volunteer on the fringe (a verbose one, granted...).  I also still have my version 3 right next to this one in my app drawer if I need it.

The left 'drawer' is amazing. Really, it's perfect.  Being able to select, size, pick the transparency (influence?) of the eraser as easily as a brush is dreamy for whittlers like me.  Though the brush selector is either slow, stubborn, or otherwise; if I'm going from pencil to marker, I just keep randomly pounding on it and eventually it goes.  The bar isn't responsive somehow.  I've tried tapping and waiting, so it's not just slow to load.  It feels like there's something afoot in or right after the tap event or something (like I know what I'm talking about.).

Thanks! That is another bug I will have fixed. It's a padding issue on smaller phones. The padding seems to have shifted the touchable area to the far right of the icon, almost at the seam. I'm glad you guys are finding these things and helping me out. :)

"Fast [clothing] fashion isn't sustainable."
OK, so wearable tech....
Hm.  I smell some consumer power in buying quality stuff that will last.  (I also see that HTC could have a comeback with a tagline like that.)

“If a positive can be found, it's that Rana Plaza has been a turning point - the 21st Century equivalent of New York's 1911 Triangle Shirtwaist factory fire which killed 146 but led to a unionized, safe garment industry,” Dolly Jones wrote on Vogue earlier this month.

Didn't get a chance to check the gist of CES this year, really, so I was listening to Marissa Mayer's keynote.  $80,000,000 for an 'innovative' startup that promises a Today Screen (OK, they didn't call it that) that will amazingly do what Tasker has been doing for me for, what, almost four years now?  Context-sensitive app launching.  Whoa.  I don't have to hunt and peck app icons anymore?  Oh, and I can customize it, too?
Earlier this week, Yahoo announced that it had acquired Aviate, a startup providing contextually relevant information on Android homescreens, but it didn't..
