    by Cridict 007

  • Very nice but...

    by Artistto

    This app is veryy good. The only thing i would suggest is a blending tool because i find changing the opacity very annoying

  • Awesome App

    by XxFanixX

    There are so many ways to make drawings here and it is just wonderful. I have tried to find an app like this for ages and I finally found one! >.< Soon I will buy the paid version for more techniques to have fun with and experiment with :)

  • I do not write reviews

    by Shane Marques

    This is an amazing application, worthy of the paid download, honestly, the demo is awesome. I lost touch with art, always loved it as a child, imagination creating beauty, works of wonder, and its on the go, no need to carry art supplies, and plan when you are going to create, no, this allows you to live outside your allowances, and expand yourself and your art. Five stars, worthy of many many more, this far exceeded my expectations, as I said, with the demo. Buy this just to say thank you for letting me experience creativity on the go, properly. I thank you! Genuinely, thank you, for the bottom of my heart and the furthest reaches of my soul. Shane Marques

  • So much fun

    by Princess artist

    It makes you feel like a real artist

  • HELP!!!!!!

    by Plants!!!

    I love this app so far but I'm having a problem. Once I create a multi-layered picture how do you make the top layer transparent?

  • :)

    by Miss.gymnastics girl

    Amazing app

  • Wow

    by Theiphonequeen

    It's actually a nice drawing app if u ask me :3

  • Outstanding Drawing Tool

    by incineration

    I never thought drawing on the iPhone would be so much fun! I drew a portrait in less than 10 minutes thanks to the shortcuts and awesome UI of this brilliant app. Minimal interface perfect for iPhone users, pressure simulation and mirror effect and quick undo/redo shortcuts are some of advantages of SketchBook.

  • Awesome app!

    by Rodin 123

    I personally think this is an awesome app for advanced art lovers and anyone else! I love this app! You can use pencils, airbrush and a paint brush. There is also a color wheel allowing by to choose any color to your taste. You can also erase previous marks that can be erased by an eraser. You should try this app! : )

  • I think it just needs a upgrade.

    by Nicki Guzman

    I think it just needs a upgrade.

  • nice

    by Nice mission


  • Bast drawing app ever!!!

    by Jessica Gibson

    I LOOOOVVVEEEE this app. I love all the features and everything works perfectly. I love it. I have no problems whatsoever. This app is perfect.

  • Boss

    by Creeper6602

    I love it

  • Great

    by Berukadoo

    Pretty awesome app

  • Needs a save feature other than export to photo gallery

    by Shadows in the Dark

    I don't have all the time in the world to draw on Sketchbook. ): I'd like to continue where I left off.

  • Layers?!

    by Beatriz Hutcherson

    The layers are horrible you can't move them! Does anyone know how if so please help!

  • No saving?

    by Nicki minaj 709

    When I tried to save my sketch it deleted it and I had to start over! Why can't you save sketches? You can in the iPad version!

  • Functional, but useless to attempt and draw on.

    by Bnlol1

    Its got all the functions youd need for a professional sketch, but trying to do so with your finger on a iphone screen is near impossible. Ipad i could see it work, but not on a phone.

  • This looked good but

    by Akito170

    I changed the brush style and now when I draw. There's nothing on the acreen'

  • I know something BETTER

    by Minecraft Life

    There's another app called SketchBookPaper and that one is actually THE BEST! Go download it. No need to thank me.

  • This thang is perfect

    by Drgshighfuetjcjsbshrjgjxjhe

    I had a pic of this guy I have a huge crush on and when I decorated it w this app it came out FANTASTIC!!! P.S. he is already cute but it made him cuter


    by Dragon-Fly3

    I've been looking for a drawing app for a long time and I finally found it!! I also like the computer edition but I had no idea it was also an app!

  • Pretty good

    by Terror of death >.<

    The app is pretty good but you should add more layers

  • Terrible

    by Astak9

    This app is absolutely terrible, do not get it.

  • No "Are you sure?"

    by Sluzzi

    This app seems great so far. My only main worry is that there is no "Are you sure" button when you ask for a new sketch. Yea, I can see a bunch of accidents with that arising...

  • Five star rate

    by Five star ratw


  • Best drawing app

    by ToxikSniper

    I love that you can zoom in so much and how u can change the opacity and how this app has layers unlink any other app. Definitely buying the full version.

  • Awesome!

    by Djakcchakdncje

    This is the best drawing app out there! So fun to use and so many different features!

  • I want to save it save it ♪♪♪

    by Need2Create!!!!

    I wish there was a save button somewhere just like on the iPad version. I was drawing something earlier and tried to move my layer. But I couldn't move it. This app would be much better if there was an option to save the drawing to a gallery and to move around a layer freely

  • Needs store and save precious sketches

    by RoxasDrawsAlot

    This app is very nice and allows you to create impressive looking sketches. However it needs the option to be able to save and store precious drawings (preferably automatically) in case of accidental deletion. It needs to live up to the name "sketchBOOK"

  • Needs a selection tool/ magic wand

    by Faciobeast

    Would be helpful if some sort of selection / magic wand tools were available. Then a 5 star rating will be in order

  • Picky picky!

    by Tandy626

    Okay I'm a bit of a perfectionist I don't know if this is an issue with the app or my failure to understand the app but either way I love this app but when I went to erase for the 10,000th time (estimate of course!) it just ignored the command it has the option to use a white paint stroke so I was able to bypass this issue but it is a little annoying but nothing near worse than the other "artistic apps"

  • Do not buy

    by Rtmhailey

    It won't let you draw anything

  • ?


    I wish that you can upload a photo and trace it

  • Question

    by Iiiiiiiifvkufxbifc

    How do you shift and rotate picture layers? 5 stars with help 2 without.

  • Coooool

    by Ldrrdsr

    So cool

  • Amazing

    by Juxxxxxxxx

    This app is awesome

  • Sweet

    by ISP Troop

    "I'm a famous fashion designer"?!! Really?! Thank you for letting us know, balletqueen. I do love this app though. Probably a better deal than Adobe Ideas... Although I haven't coughed up the dinero to know about the features Ideas has.

  • Amazing

    by Balletqueen2002

    I'm a famous fashion designer and this app is awesome most if the clothes I design our from me just drawing on the app and it makes my creations come to life I'm also an artist so this app is awesome . I recommend it for anyone

  • Quite the Work of Art

    by joegenius595

    SBMX is great for drawing, and I don't have many complaints. But the big one I do have is that it takes a while to navigate through all of the menus and things to pick colors/brushes. Cool, though!

  • Love it!!

    by mjpaldea

    I use this all the time on the iPad version.. Add the thing that makes a circle, straight line and other things because that's what I really need :)

  • Awesome

    by Idrees Inc

    This app is the best drawing app I have used to date! Simple to use, but the effect is extraordinary! Definitely recommended!

  • Better on iPad.

    by alexx vulturi

    Wish you could save them.

  • No zoom

    by BeatlesFan128

    This is a great app, unless you're looking to add any details. Adjusting the opacity and size of your brushes is redundant if you can't see what your doing.

  • Awesome

    by Tierra w.

    I make awesome stuff and guys , save it by taking a screen shot

  • THIS APP IS *****GREAT!!!!!!!!*****!!!!!!!!!!!

    by Great app!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
