One of the best drawing apps on Android and iOS is now completely free


AutoDesk's SketchBook is hands-down one of the best drawing apps on Android. It was the first app I fired up when I got my hands on a Galaxy Tab with S-Pen support a while ago, and I immediately fell in love. SketchBook offers users a multitude of tools to play around with, such as various types of paint brushes, customizable pencils, pens, and markers—as well as many stamps, and "shapes" brushes, if that's more your jam—as well as a full-fledged layer editor with up to 3 layers and 16 blending modes!

Without going into too much detail, SketchBook also has a bunch of mirror modes that automatically mirror whatever your drawing in different ways, as well as transforming tools, and time-lapse recording feature that lets you record in-app videos of your progress to share with others. Pretty neat for the more talented folks out there who want to show off their craft on YouTube.

Up until now, AutoDesk SketchBook was free to download, but unlocking the "Pro" toolset and higher resolutions for Scan Sketches (above 1280 x 1280) required a one-time payment of $2.99. Well, this is no more the case! The app was made completely free yesterday, meaning you can now take advantage of all premium features for absolutely nothing at all.

If you love drawing, and especially if you have an Android tablet with stylus support, or an iPad with Apple Pencil, there is no excuse not to give AutoDesk SketchBook a try! Download it from the links below.
