    Woohoo! This is a great piece of software, easily one of my favorite homebrew apps for DS.

    edit: Ok, I just tried it out, and this is a hell of an update. I'd now have to say this is one of the top 5 overall homebrews for DS. The wifi gallery isn't up yet, but sending to an email address is pretty neat. The animated background menu is also a very nice touch. Pressure sensitive brush size is a neat addition, too. Tweaked menus and options, and 4x zoom... Yea, I'm going to be using this a lot today.

    Gah wifi!!!! it pisses me off that i can't make homebrew work on my router. Nintendo WFC works OK but not homebrews, they just don't connect. Does the USB dongle works with Homebrew? (The official one from Nintendo)

    Awesome, pressure sensitivity was the main thing I wanted. Can't wait to try this out.

    I love this new version. I've sent several pictures through WiFi without a hitch. A remarkable homebrew program.

    Great, so now I can save my pictures on the compy with no fear of them getting lost because of memory card corruption. [​IMG]

    I haven't tried this, but after reading a bit about it I think it still isn't on the same level of awesomeness as Phidias.

    First off, a drawing program like this MUST have good zoom, and this from what I understand only has two levels of zoom.

    Second, no undo, I don't know about you guys, but after drawing a highly detailed picture I don't want the touchscreen to mess it up because it decided to draw a random line all over my work, undo comes in handy in those situations.

    IMO the giuy making this and the creator of Phidias should team up and make one high quality, big drawing program together.

    Yeah, all Colors needs is an undo button, and a palette. I for one really dislike Phidias, just could never get used to it's GUI, and I just like the way Colors looks better.

    Undo is implemented. It's just not very obvious. You can start drawing from any point during playback of painting. Just hit the stop at the point before you made the mistake. Then when it ask you "Jump to end of playback" choose no.

    Yes you can, I had it too before I bought a WLAN router. Read the tutorial here: http://forums.afterdawn.com/thread_view.cfm/390312

    Your USB connector wil just work like a normal accespoint after that and it will connect with WIFI games and homebrew games/applications too.

    There is a newer version of this since the initial release of 1.06 had a few bugs that needed to be worked out. Over at their official forum they are asking for sites to please update any old versions they posted to the newest one, which you can grab here: http://www.collectingsmiles.com/colors/
