Wince6 Paint / Draw / Photo Editing Free Apps
After a member asked for any good applications for painting /drawing on Windows Mobile devices, XDA member tekknogenius, who by the way is one of the oldest members around, decided to share two free programs to paint/draw: nfPencil and nfCanvas, both apps are from the same developer and are free tools.
