iPad App Review: SketchBook Pro

SketchBook Pro has proven itself as one of the top applications for digital sketching most recently. The application is a professional-grade paint, sketching and drawing tool that comes with a very easy to use interface.

We’ve seen several artists already creating some impressive artwork with the iPad. SketchBook Pro has been used to create quick sketches or print-quality production artwork. I’m not even close to being an artist, but have had some time to play with this application, and I can say is quite intuitive.

Whether you’re an artist or a professional illustrator, SketchBook Pro allows you to be very creative with your iPad.
