Despite the terrible fate of Galaxy Note 7, users are not going stop loving the brilliant features that the device brings, especially the S Pen. While the feature to draw over any screen on Android may not include support for an S Pen, it is possible nonetheless.

Since Android Marshmallow allows app overlay, you can use a simple drawing app to turn any screen on your Android into your canvas. Whether you want to note something down immediately, or just want to scribble across your device for fun, here’s how to draw over any screen on Android.

Step 1: Download the Draw on Screen app

Whereas the upper bar lets you change the brush size and color, which can be unlocked only after an in-app purchase of $1.69. The notification drawer will also show you an ongoing notification that allows you to disable the overlay and turn of the Draw on Screen app service.
