Doodle Buddy

What and Why:

Doodle Buddy is a free paint app. It's like hundreds of other paint apps but it's risen to the top because it's free, easy to use, and does just what you need. One strength is the ability to utilize photos and add text or lines and then save and/or send via email. It costs $.99 to get rid of the advertisements.


  1. Take a photo of a student doing something good, or something in your room which needs the principal or custodial staff's attention and then add some text to the photo in Doodle and email it to someone (or to yourself.)
  2. Take a screenshot of an image from Maps or Google Earth or a image from a website and annotate it. Save it
  3. Try erasing the screen by shaking it like an Etch-a-Sketch
