What is the product?
As everyone spend so much time doodling and with great concentration too, this app allows you to upload all of your doodles whether their notes or flower drawings.

How does it work?
It allows people all over the world show off their doodles compare, share, like, comment and the most of all inspire others doodlers to keep doodling.

*New* Refinement question: What will the future look like with your idea in it?

Users will no longer be wasting their time doodling for no reason they'll be doodling for a reason. The amount of concentration that doodlers put into their doodles. As designers say sometimes an idea comes to you, when you least expect it instead of just noting it down, try scribbling it down for future reference.

In this challenge, we want to create ideas with young people, not for them. Outline how you’re planning to involve young people or other end-users (parents, teachers, etc) in designing, iterating or testing your idea during the Ideas phase.

This app can be used anywhere and the doodles can be saved to your albums if you haven't got wifi or mobile internet connection. With the doodles you can do them straight onto the phone or the can be done on paper and pictured to upload the final doodle.  This sort of app could be used by a range of people that have access to a mobile phone that I s connected to the internet. Parents could also upload their children's work to share to parents group.It also allows you to track your improvement on the drawing department and share ideas with others.

How might you envision your idea spreading across geographies or cultures so that it inspires young people around the world to cultivate their creative confidence?

This app will be linked to all the well known social networks so you can cross platform your work and show people that don’t use this app what you have created, allowing others to find out about the app and allowing them to start taking part.

What skills, input or guidance would you like to receive from the OpenIDEO community to help you build out or refine your idea further?

Awesome idea Divya I love the thought of people being able to show of their doodles to people with similar interest and get feed back... would there be a option of staying anonymous for the less confident people until they gain enough confidence to show themselves of?
