Doodle.ly Unleashes Social Drawing to All Platforms via Web App: Available for Doodling 'On the Go'

New Social Drawing Web App Provides the Ability to Create and Share Doodles and Hand Drawn Art From Any Device

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Nov 15, 2012) - Doodle.ly, the social sketchpad for creative self-expression, announced today its widespread availability across all smartphone and tablet platforms. Now in addition to the personal computer and iPads, the new Doodle.ly web app allows people of all interests and skill levels to freely create hand-drawn art, sketches, notes and doodles, and share these creations from any device. As the only social drawing network to provide the service for free on multiple platforms, this new update makes freestyle doodling more mobile and accessible to anyone. Simply type http://Doodle.ly into any mobile or tablet browser and download the web app to the home screen for quick and easy access.

"We're excited to expand social drawing across all platforms by offering our vibrant community of doodlers greater flexibility and more options for sharing with a completely mobile, social platform," said co-founder Darren Paul. "Now people can doodle from any device and share their creations in the moment or on-the-go."

"Doodling is generally an activity that happens in tangent with other activities, like talking on the phone or sitting in meetings," said co-founder Evan Vogel. "With our new open access and widespread availability, doodling digitally and sharing your work can happen even more spontaneously. This will accelerate growth of our fan community, create an even stickier experience for users and further inspire doodling worldwide."

Doodle.ly enables people to create hand drawn art, sketches, notes, and doodles and to share their work instantly within the Doodle.ly community and through social platforms like Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest.
