    Only thing better than an iPad version... an ANDROID version!!!

    Guys...

    Wow!

    I've looked at the specs (since I don't have an iPad), and it looks like you've really taken the UI to the next level! I didn't think it was possible to improve ArtRage! But you did it.

    Now... ahem... cough cough cough... Uh... When can we expect an Android 2.2 or 3 version? Cos I really really reallllly reaaaaaaaaally didn't want to have to buy an iPad. And now, thanks to ArtRage for iPad, it looks like I'm going to be FORCED to buy a damn iPad. (But I really want an Android tablet.)

    Oh Roy just get an iPad, get the cheapest one, you will love it and why wait for something that will treat you & your art so well. I wouldn't trade mine for anything.

    Hehheh! Thanks Suzi! Two 'issues' for me... (1) I'm really not keen on Apple's closed approach to the world. And (2) South Africa STILL doesn't have any official iPad outlets. So even the cheapest one is an expensive import. The price is DOUBLE what you pay! Argh!

    I have a third reason. And it's that I'm banking on Android being around for a long time. I have an Android phone, and it's wonderful.

    Roy, I'm an Android guy myself. I dont buy into the whole Apple process myself, and it does have its drawbacks compared to a more open platform. I went for an iPad originally for Brushes and Sketchbook Pro (as well as a bunch of kids apps for my son). After finding ArtRage, I couldn't be happier with my decision. I've played with several Android tablets but the touch response just wasn't at the same level as the iPad. On the whole Apple has the best developers supporting their platform right now, which is a huge plus. I think you may owe it to yourself to seriously try one if possible.

    Ps - I'm typing this on my wifi iPad tethered to the internet through my Droid!

    Yup... I hear you! It's certainly a slick device. Kinda wish I could buy an iPad and hack it to run Android. That would be pretty cool.

    What about this

    Just read this guys, I love my iPad the way it is, I'm not much of a tech geek, only an artrage geek.

    iPad may soon run Android via OpeniBoot
    by David Quilty (RSS feed) on Nov 12th, 2010
    Not entirely psyched about your iPad because of its lack of Adobe Flash support, or unhappy with the iOS operating system itself? How about installing Android on it instead? OpeniBoot, an open source implementation of iBoot for Apple iOS devices, is on a mission to bring the Android OS to the iPad and iPhone 4. While previous versions of OpeniBoot have appeared for the first-gen iPhone and iPhone 3G, this is the first we've seen of the implementation for more modern iOS devices. For jailbroken (obviously) iOS devices, the use of OpeniBoot allows the booting of unsigned code such as Linux, and thus Android, on Apple devices.

    One of the reasons I have always used Apple computers is because the systems work fine for my needs as-is, but if you are an adventurous soul who can back their way out of a technological jam, this could be kind of a cool experiment.

    Jeez, Susan... That sounds REALLLLLLLLLLLY cool! I definitely have no qualms about delving into the innards of my technology. I've done some neat hacking of my Android phone, an HTC Desire.

    Now of course... having an iPad running Android means there simply HAS TO BE a version of ArtRage for Android!

    Hmmmmmm. The Samsung Galaxy Tab is now generally available. And it's definitely looking like an iPad-eater to me.

    ArtRage... any plans?
