      Hi Anon, unfortunately the new sketch question features are not available on Android just yet.

  • Patrick

    Love the sketch feature! It is the primary tool I use. I use the annotated photos in my reports. I have 2 requests/suggestions. I am using the pens to great use, but the circles and arrows I draw are not the prettiest things in the world. I was wondering if an “arrow” pen and a “draw circle” type of option could be implemented? The second suggestion would be to add a caption (text box) to the photo as well. Thanks again.

      Hi Patrick, thanks for the great suggestions! I will pass them along to the production team. We’re very happy to receive such positive feedback about this feature.

  • Alex

    I’ve added the sketch question to my form, but my iphone only gives the option to sketch amd erase. There’s no tools button. What am I doing wrong?

    • Gabriela Morris

      Hi Alex, do you have the latest version? If you’re unsure, then check the app store for an update.

      • Alex

        Yes I had the old version! Works now. Many thanks.

        When will this be available on Android?

        • Gabriela Morris
