For what it does, it does it flawless!

I like how it saves the chalkboard in your Dock icon, even if you close the program. That's nice.

I wonder if it has support for Wacom pens (note: I've never used one of those before), in which case I'd wager this application would become more useable.

The only minor drawbacks, are that it's a bit hard to draw with precision, and you miss the feature of either being able to use Tabula Rasa in fullscreen mode, or either being able to adjust the chalk size (perhaps by means of simply scrolling the middle-mouse wheel up/down?).

But hey, nice work, Developer! :)

Very cute, very simple, very free, and very five-star.

Great. Simply does what it says.

Really useful, if you need to draw something very quickly. It is funny too. :)

Thanks for providing this wonderful little gem! This is one of those apps that you should keep around if you have a Mac -- and kids ;-) Even if you don't, drawing something funny on the table and clicking the nail is probably the fastest way to put something on the desktop that will cheer you up. Hope it will be possible at some point to adjust the size of the window.
