    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.

    Excellent brushes and new take on mobile UI move this to the top of the paint/draw category.

    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.
