Minor fixes and enhancements.
Updates in 2.5.0:
Added comprehensive support for iOS Drag and Drop with iPad multitasking:
- Drag drawings out of the gallery in several image formats.
- Drop images into the gallery in several image formats (creates a new drawing for each item dropped).
- Drop images into the drawing canvas in several image formats (creates a new element for each item dropped that can be individually edited).
- Drag layers out of the layers menu in several image formats.
- Drop images into the layers menu in several image formats (creates a new layer for each item dropped).
So now you can easily share individual layers with painting apps that support drag and drop to combine your vector and paint artwork.
Added canvas zoom keyboard shortcuts.
Also includes minor fixes and enhancements.

Ratings and Reviews
I cannot say enough good things about this app. I read about Inkpad in the book “Artists For iPads” and it has changed my life. I wanted to do vector art but couldn’t afford Adobe Illustrator (and honestly couldn’t see myself buying it) and this offers what I’d need from Illustrator. It’s easy to use and has everything you’d need for vector art.
I sketch on paper or find an image, vector it, then manipulate it into my own design. I use it finalize designs which I then pass over to my partner who conceptualizes it for 3D printing. I also use it import designs into a Cricut which I then cut out to make greeting cards. Everything has become so easy now that I’ve been able to sell “crafts” from my designs.
I would like to see is an in-app palm rejection option which I would normally take away one star for but this app deserves the 5 stars.
Excellent Mobile Graphic and Publication Design Tool
I As I have been a professional designer on a wide variety of projects, I can say Inkpad is really special app with a really special team behind it. This product combines all the most important features of a graphic design application (i.e. illustrator) with the polished and intuitive UX necessary to make repeated use in a high performance environment. Screen real-estate on an iPad is limited, especially without the pixel-perfect input of a cursor, but I feel like the devs have turned this disadvantage into an opportunity to create far more elegant experience.
I want to conclude in saying that the devs have also shown themselves to listen to user feedback, even with the advent of a second Inkpad app. That’s fantastic customer support in my book.
It’s good! But...
Well, this app is good. The vector feature thing certainly is useful, but... I have one complaint. The paintbrush tool... well, here is an example of how it works. If I were to draw a circle, it would fill the circle in automatically. ...I don’t want it to do that! Not unless I tell it to. I can’t make a curvy line without it turning out super weird, and then having to go erasing parts of it until it is a thin line. And that’s inconvenient, and a tad difficult. Why isn’t there just a normal paint brush??? I want to make a nice drawing with this, but i guess I’ll have to go into a different, FREE drawing app i have and make a drawing that is better than anything I could ever make in this app, which WASN’T free! Give me a normal brush, and I’ll give you an extra star.
Developer Response ,
Hi, it sounds like all your problems can be solved by simply turning off the fill for the paths you are drawing. Then you will get a line as you are expecting, the stroke of which you can vary as required. Please get in touch via email if you need more explantation or links to our YouTube tutorials.
