Silly. Frivolous. Yes, DrawChat is a Chat App With Sketching.
What do you do after you spend years working on very serious, infrastructure problems supporting Gmail and literally hundreds of millions of users globally? You build a drawing app. Or at least that's what Gabor Cselle did after he stopped being an Android and Gmail product manager, following an acquisition into Google two years ago. He and co-founder Jeremy Orlow had been working on Gmail and Chrome respectively. "We just wanted to do something fun. Something that would make our friends smile and feel really lightweight," Cselle said. "This is the simplest idea that we could come up with. We literally were just like: What is something that will delight people?" So they created DrawChat.
