I am using Mac OS 10.4.11 on a MacBook Pro. Evertime I launch DeskDoodle.app it totally locks up my laptop.

Not surprising, since this version is over two years old... try a newer software, Highlight, free:

Come on. Update Deskdoodle. I think its a great application with great potential.
Thing you could update --
1. have options for bigger brush sizes to like whatever size.
2. Fix the bug on color correction on the desktop background, it fades the colors.
3. Have live text input with a editing tablet window

I'm having a problem when starting up DeskDoodle 1.3. I can open it and use the trail but when I cleared the drawing and start it back up again this weird blank warning window pop-ups with no buttons or anything and freezes. I have tried it with my Ti Powerbook and PowerG5 2.3 Ghz. I'm not totally sure if the directions I said found the bug. Like the program, keep up the good work.

All these tools cost money.

Try this:

I found this good at first glance, and bought a licence, but then I discovered scriboard. Perhaps it has less features (only pen and text), but it's just the thing you need when you do a video-presentation.
Simple, quick and good keyboard shortcuts.
Perhaps it's overpriced, but I prefer this app. Take a look at :

Not experiencing the loading problem below. Looks like a pretty solid application for presentations. The hot keys certainly make it stand out. Multiple monitor support would be nice. Also, white should be one of the colors you can choose without the picker.

This is tons of fun to play with. While everything in there seems to work, a few other tools like straight lines would be a nice addition. Even if you don't need this for any specific reason, just drawing on your desktop is really fun!

Yes straight lines would be fantastic. I would prefer to have it implimented like photoshop, shift key draws straight line to the next mouse click.

I evaluated this, Desktastic, and Ultimate Pen at the same time. IMO, DeskDoodle best of 3, and cheaper to boot. It allows access to the system color picker ... a big plus. It's menu is in the menubar ... a better implementation than the other two. It has smoother line quality. It was easier to get the screenprints I wanted. The developer was very responsive and helpful and plans further enhancements. Be aware that forum posts on their site, if accurate, indicate possible conflicts if Konfabulator is running at the same time. Also, while the developer suggests 10.3+, I ran it in Jaguar and found it stable enough for my purposes -- screenshots of notes over active projects. I would encourage any fellow Jaguar holdouts to give it a shot and provide the developer with bug reports.

Check top. Even when idle DeskDoodle is using cpu (betwen 0.7 and 2.5%). Desktastic uses 0.0% when idle.
