Asketch is a unique and versatile sketch pad. It allows creativity on the go, anytime, anywhere.

Its deliberate simplicity makes it perfect for beginners who want to learn to draw;
equally, advanced artists will find a wonderful buttery, tonal canvas for their life studies, cartoons, abstracts, landscapes and other subjects. The app is engineered to deliver rapid, but powerful image capture, facilitated by a great transform function that allows you to pick up the drawing, resize it and move it around the canvas, and a amazing zoom that lets you draw in minute detail. So if you want to put a traditional, but digital sketch pad in your pocket, this is the app for you.

Gesture based drawing interface: Changing the surface area of your finger on the screen controls the focus of the drawing. Supports pressure sensitive drawing on iPhones that support pressure sensitivty.

Best sketching app

So simple and easy to use. Without unnecessary features like Photoshop

This application is just great. Simple interface and easy to use. One small improvement would be the ability to re-open previous drawings to continue working on them. The addition of a colour wheel with pencil or pastel texture would also be terrific. Apart from that, I love it and use it every day. I think even accomplished artists would be impressed. Highly recommended.

ASKetch is THE BEST procedural drawing app.
I wrote a review 2 years ago and ASKetch has improved with some fine new features.
The inevitable bugs that come with iOS updates are quickly addressed.
The addition of colour is welcome. The incremental development is a wise approach as the app is reliable and not encumbered with gimmicks.
Every new feature seems well thought through and in keeping with the aesthetic that is particular to ASKetch.
It is THE artists' app. Well done Andy.
ASKetch is unique in the pool of procedural apps and we'll worth it's asking price.
