If you like this app, please support its continued development with great ratings! We also have many plans for further improvements but want to hear your suggestions as well! It is most helpful if you submit your ideas at our User Hub (www.drawboard.uservoice.com), instead of as reviews in the Store, so that we can communicate directly with you. Sometimes we may need more information about feature requests and by posting in the User Hub, we can obtain this from you.
