Reviewed in Form+Function
I love the idea of sketching on my phone, but I've never fallen in love with the process of sketching on my phone with my fat fingers. Autodesk is one of the cleaner sketchbook apps available, and I really want to like using it. The problem probably lies in my dingy S2 screen and my lack of a stylus.
Autodesk® SketchBook® is an intuitive painting and drawing application designed for people of all skill levels, who love to draw. We reimagined the paint engine, so SketchBook delivers more fluid pencils and natural painting than ever before, all while keeping the interface clean and simple. With SketchBook, capture everything from your smallest doodles to your biggest ideas, all in one place, no matter where you are. Just added:
Time-lapse recording is now available for Android! Easily capture in-app video of your drawing process to share with your network. We also removed the Sign In requirement for many of the advanced features. Now, just download and discover a more powerful drawing app, without signing in. We’ve also made it easier to import your traditional art onto a layer in SketchBook with Import from Camera. Snap a photo of your line art and start coloring in SketchBook.
