Amazon Appstore's Free App of the Day, 2/6/2012: Draw(er) Pro has promised to make a paid app free every day in the Amazon Appstore, and today's app is Draw(er) Pro.

Barnes & Noble
Draw(er) Pro is priced at $1.00 in the Android Market. It is normally priced at $1.00 in the Amazon Appstore. As we've noted previously, prices sometimes differ between the two marketplaces.

Draw(er) Pro is described as follows:
Draw(er) Pro is a sketching and drawing app with a twist. The various tools give you a new perspective on drawing, so your basic lines turn into works of art. Set colors and brush sizes, undo and redo as needed, save and share your sketches, and much more.

Gather your Artist's Tools

Setting up your canvas and paint colors isn't just a matter of clicking a color picker. Choose hue, saturation, and lightness settings, just as you would in professional image manipulation software. Smooth your drawing's edges with automatic anti-aliasing, and set up your brush size before you begin your latest masterpiece.

Play Creatively

Turn simple lines into chains of circles and squares. Apply sketched effects, fur, webbing, and shading. Erase just a bit or undo a lot--and redo if you've undone too much. Color naturally, and keep your colors inside the lines, or create a rougher, realistic drawing with a happy-messy appeal.

Draw(er) Pro encourages creativity with your very first doodle. You'll work towards more and more complex drawings as you discover how many different ways the tools work for you. For example, fur makes perfect fireworks, and both the web and sketch brushes fill in shapes as you draw. Sketch and draw creatively with every tool in Draw(er) Pro, then save and share your works of art for others to enjoy.
Draw(er) Pro has a rating of 4.0 stars in the Android Market and 3.6 stars in the Amazon Appstore.
This is a great app for those with a stylus (hint, hint, Galaxy Note).

There is also a free version, rated at 3.8 star in the Android Market, so it seems that high 3s - low 4s is the right rating. We'd say, "buy" it while it's free.
