Various flavors of Photoshop have become synonymous with the concepts of image-editing and working creatively with bitmaps, beyond basic photo-editing offered by the likes of iPhoto. However, a number of low-cost alternatives to Adobe’s Photoshop (and its consumer-based sibling, Elements) exist -- including Flying Meat’s Acorn -- and they’re getting better with every release.
VoodooPad Pro is one of those apps that takes a while to grow on you.
When you open up a new document for the first time, VoodooPad looks
kind of like a TextEdit window—in other words, plain and devoid of
excess features. But if you’re the kind of person who needs to capture
information and ideas as they happen, before they disappear into the
ether—writers, students, compulsive list-makers, listen up—VoodooPad
quickly becomes a valuable tool for recording all the awesome band
names, Wi-Fi passwords, haiku, class notes, important telephone
numbers, and ideas for your novel that pass between your ears every day.
