New app alert: DoInk

Looking for a new fun app to explore? We've just discovered DoInk --  a Massachusetts startup that  brings two things to the table: a community of talented people, and all the tools they need to share their ideas. Once you've signed up with DoInk you can begin animating, drawing, and sharing. And if you prefer to speed things up, you can re-use the work of thousands of other users.

The folks at DoInk are bringing together story tellers,  critics, artists, and educators that are all enjoying animation -- sounds like a robust community of users! So if you want to be entertained, learn something new, or create something fun, check it out. We're liking this cute Valentine created using DoInk's new iPhone app:
