Reviewed in HOLO apps
A drawing app, you might ask? How does this fall under holo apps? Well, I've tried a lot of drawing apps, and this is the only one that doesn't make me feel like I'm using gingerbread. The app follows the guidelines where possible. It has a lot of features too, and the developer keeps pumping out updates based on your feedback.
ejsid: my drawing and sketching application for tablets. It's designed for Android, follows design guidelines and is really fast and fluid. Basic version is free (with 20 tools and 2 layers), pro version is $4.99 with 70 tools, up to 16 layers and infinite undo.
Convert your tablet or phone into digital sketchbook with more than 70 paint brushes, smudge, file and eraser tool. This fast and intuitive painting application will unlock full power of your imagination. With support for pressure sensitive pens (like Samsung's S Pen) you device will be changed into real canvas.
Important: this is free application with advanced features requiring pro license in-app purchase. Single licence purchase will activate all you devices associated with your Google account.
