App Description

Asketch is a unique and versatile sketch pad that fits in your pocket. 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.

Image zooming that actually works: Do amazing detail work when zoomed in. No pixelation of brushes while drawing!
