iShodo for iPad

 

Description

Japanese Calligraphy on your iPad

iShodo transforms your iPad into a Japanese calligraphy tool kit. You can write anything that you wish...practice your calligraphy, inscribe letters, draw pictures, and set down your signature in style.

Main Features of iShodo:

Vertical and Horizontal Screen

Paper will be shown on the full screen of the iPad when used vertically. Tap the right edge of the screen and you can change the color and blackness of the ink. Tap the green pot to delude the ink, the ink stone to add blackness to it, and the red pot to change the ink color to red. When you tap on the left edge, you can change the boldness of the brush. If the app is used horizontally, the pots and brushes are always displayed on the screen.

A Real-Life Writing Experience

The app expresses key aspects of Japanese calligraphy including the stop, jump, and stroke. Fun and easy Japanese calligraphy is at your fingertips...literally!

Making a Mess, Making Mistakes: The Way of Shodo

The more lines you write, the more deluded the brush’s blackness will become. When the brush’s ink is deluded, tap the ink stone to dip in for a fresh batch. Tap the green pot to delude the ink again.

Two Ink Colors

Black and red ink are always available. You can use them as you like for basic colors or accents. Simply tap the ink stone or red ink pot to change the color.

Three Types of Brush Boldness

Thin, normal, and bold brushes are available. They give you a wide range of expression for your writing...from drawing precise pictures or elegantly putting down your signature with a thin pen, to writing dynamic letters with a bold one.

Pour Your Heart into Each Character

iShodo encourages precision in your writing. There is no erase tool or undo feature...just like in actual Shodo. If you want to try again, just tap on the top of the screen and select “New Paper” to restart.

iShodo Gallery

Your work is saved to your iPad’s photo library. You can also upload your work to your Twitter® account, where uploaded paper will be collected automatically and displayed on the users’ gallery of iShodo. Show off your work and see work from other users.

*Your worksheet is saved to the Gyazo server created by Toshiyuki Masui. If you don’t want to share your worksheet, please refrain from uploading.

Good, but not outstanding.

:
For what it does, iShodo is acceptable but not outstanding. I like how it replicates the reality of the brush running out of ink, requiring the user to pull more ink into the brush, and to thin it with water when needed. I also appreciate the contrasting red ink -- life (and art) is about contrast. Unfortunately, iShodo could improve on the feel of its brush stroke, which is not quite authentic. As you can see from the screenshots, strokes tend to be heavy but then are "watered down" at the end of longer strokes. While iShodo is good at producing the hane ("serifs" or "fishhooks" on the ends of the strokes in the Kanji), the stroke still is overall either too dense or too watered down. iShodo also provides only 3 brush sizes, the largest of which I found myself never using as it was much too large for my strokes on the iPad. You may have different results.

The desktop interface of iShodo is pleasing, to me at least, as it helps to promote a stronger sense of authenticity and relaxation while painting, drawing, or writing; but the drawback to that interface is that much space is wasted which could have been put to use as the canvas itself. A more effective technique might have been to make a "zooming" desktop, or disappearing panels, which could be called up from the menu available at the top of drawing pad by tapping on the paperweight.

All of this comes with a price tag a bit more than similar apps. My recommendation is to save 70% or so, and purchase Zen Brush instead. [See my review there for my impressions of that app.]
