Sketch Painter app review: a one-stop solution

Reviews

Introduction

Instead of having a few different apps just to make drawings and sketches why not pick one that has all the tools you're looking for in one complete offering. That's exactly what the Sketch Painter app for your iPad has set out to do. You will be able to sketch, draw, and paint within this app and have plenty of tools at your disposal in order to maximize your creativity options. All of these features have been built into a user interface that is smooth, responsive, and very simple to use.

Calling All Artists

The Sketch Painter tool offers a variety of features in order to please both amateur and professional artists. No matter what your skill level you'll be able to navigate this app with ease and enjoy all the tools it has to offer. The app has its very own brush system that makes picking your brush all the easier. The app comes preloaded with a brush and two pens, which means you can draw and sketch as you please. Of course you can adjust the brush size, stroke size, transparency, and the pressure-sensitivity can be tweaked.

There are a number of tools available as in-app purchases these just give you more ways in which to be creative. The in-app purchases range in price from $0.99 to $3.99. The app currently has 3.5 out of five stars from users leaving room for improvement still. It seems many users are having problems with it crashing and then they lose their work. The app was last updated over a year ago so it's clear that it's in need of some fine-tuning at this point.

A Variety of Artist's Tools

The Sketch Painter app offers a wide variety of tools such as the ability to set whatever canvas size you want. You can import photos and then draw on them, there is a redo and undo feature with unlimited steps, the eraser tool always comes in handy, and you can zoom and pan around the page. There are 50 templates that can be used as your background, you can share your creations to Twitter, Facebook, and email, and even print your work. Files can be exported in PDF format but keep in mind this requires an in-app purchase.
