DrawQuest for iPhone

I blogged about DrawQuest for iPad earlier this year. DrawQuest is the creation of our portfolio company Canvas. Since it launched DrawQuest has been featured several times in the iPad app store and has developed a large community of people who draw the daily quests. The quality and creativity of the drawings is really incredible. Here's a feed of the drawings that have made their way to twitter.

So here's the big news. DrawQuest is now available on iPhone. You can now participate in the DrawQuest community via tablet or phone (and iPod touch). And DrawQuest now includes the ability for a user to create a new quest. Until now, all the quests came from the company and they came once a day. There will still be a quest of the day but users can now publish quests as well to their friends. So there's more to draw and more to do.

The new DrawQuest was designed from the ground up for iOS7 and looks and feels great in your hand. So if you like to draw or want to draw more, please download DrawQuest and start drawing and engaging in the community.

    was unable to get to app store listing to download. link from your post didn’t load and when I searched DrawQuest in the app store the listing didn’t popup. See attached.

    I’m as cynical as they come but I have to say that their about/mission page gives a great sell job for the value of drawquest:But I’m not creative! Creativity isn’t a mystical gift passed on to some people and not others. Creativity is like brushing your teeth — it’s a healthy habit you should make time for every day. DrawQuest isn’t about “winning” or becoming the next Picasso. DrawQuest is about re-learning to express yourself creatively and sticking with it. Everything about DrawQuest — from our simple drawing tools to the ability to star and play back drawings — was designed to foster a community of budding creators.

      This is what I tell my teenager about his math homework. It’s not about getting good at math, it’s about creating those tunnels and pathways in your brain that more interesting ideas can flow through.

      That is all Chris. He is great

    Have you heard about Pencil?There’s other technology like it, though I like their video presentation of it.I wonder if it works with DrawQuest?http://vimeo.com/78124534 (hopefully this embeds as playable)http://www.fiftythree.com/p…

      the second half started to give me a headache. it has the feel of an apple advert about it. no real surprise there, but it left more questions than answers in my mind about the product. does it only work on an ipad?

      1. Matt A. Myers

        That’s definitely not an ad geared towards the detail-oriented folks. I think it is only for iPads though. Took me awhile to find that on their page.

          Some of the features are iPad only but it’s a stylus that works with any capacitive touch display.

          1. Matt A. Myers

            Good to know. They should express that more clearly in the video and elsewhere … I’d really like to try one out. I read a comment somewhere else that it’d be a good company purchase for Apple – and I think that’d be a great way to demo it, in store, and to perhaps sell more iPads, etc.. though no idea if I’d use it. The “cool” moment was the eraser.

          2. Aaron Klein

            The web site for it is pretty clear. Got me to the order page immediately…I’ve been a fan of the app for a while. 🙂

            At /pencil, the only image of a tablet is that of an iPad, and then it’s only at the bottom 90-95% scroll where it has -“Plays nicelyPalm Rejection, Erase, and Blend work only with Paper, but Pencil also works well as a non-connected stylus in any other app and on any touchscreen device.”

          4. Aaron Klein

            Well their app is iPad only so that emphasis made sense, I thought.

    They should have targeted the porn industry first, then everyone would have adopted it later. Look at Netscape. (Just kidding)

    1. jason wright

      but they targeted android first (i assume), and i wonder why, and also how long has it taken to now release on iOS?

  7. jason wright

    what are these moneynews and moneyvista links at the foot of this page?

    Fred–I’m a fan of what Canvas is doing. Though not a user.Are there any public numbers on how many people are using this so I have a sense of this market?

    1. fredwilson

      about 100k monthly activesthe hope is adding iPhone will drive that to 500k or higher

  9. Alex Prushynskyy

    It does not work for iOS6. As you might know there are a ton of iPods touch (up to gen 4) out there that do not support iOS7 and thats definitely a potential market that they are missing out on. Or would you say that its not that significant?
