SketchPad HD for iPad review

If you’re used to your iPad’s Notes program, you’ll feel right at home with SketchPad. In landscape view, all your documents are shown in a list on the left; in portrait view, they appear as a pop-over menu. The main drawing area is displayed in standard notepad fashion, with lines and a margin (you can only alter this in portrait view).

Your options are very limited, though. There are no layers, and just 90 colours and 12 brush sizes to choose from.

It’s obviously not for serious work, but perfect for jotting down ideas (similar to Adobe Ideas).

OUR VERDICT

Adding text to your work is great, but you can’t just create text boxes anywhere and have to stick to lines on the page. Despite this, it’s a more flexible option than Notes.
