You’ve probably heard that David Hockney started painting with his iPhone in 2009, and around the same time, Jorge Colombo also drew the cover of a New Yorker edition on his smartphone. But, the urge to scribble on a smartphone is not limited to artists alone.
Whether you intend to use just your fingers or you have the stylish stylus, below we’ve listed some amazing apps, to do hand sketches that you can use for your product ideas.

Paper by FiftyThree
iOS; freemium

This is like a digital sketchbook with a lot of virtual pencils and tools to choose from. Write or scribble whatever you like – from artworks to diagrams. It comes with the stylus pencil as well.

Autodesk Sketchbook
iOS/ Android; freemium

Autodesk has a rich history with graphics on computers and it has passed the same brilliance into this app to help people express themselves at the basic level. It is an amazing app with great tools, which can be enhanced or improved on with the in-app purchases.

Bamboo Paper
iOS/ Android/ Windows; freemium

Similar to Paper by FiftyThree however, this is available to android users as well. It has lots of drawing or sketching tools as well as a social media sharing capacity.

Tayasui Sketches
iOS; freemium

Several artists have touted this to be their best hand sketch app. If properly used, it can produce amazing images and its support for pressure-sensitive styli offers it a different layer of flexibility.

AutoCAD 360
iOS/ Android; freemium

This is an app used mostly by professionals. The well-known computer aided design software works perfectly on touch screen. With this app, you can easily share and archive your drawings.

Procreate
iOS; $4.49

There are over 120 brushes on this app so irrespective of your skill and product type, there’s something for you. It is especially useful for large complex drawings.

Adobe Photoshop Sketch

iOS/ Android; Free

This can be used for fairly small tasks such as ink or pen sketches with watercolor texture. It can have multiple layers, each having a bespoke blend and opacity setting mode. The best part of this app is it tools which can help you draw perfectly; for instance, it has different French curves and polygons which can be placed on a sheet and drawn around.

Adobe Illustrator Draw

iOS/ Android; Free

This is another Adobe product, although this is a vector-based app. It has amazing tools, templates and produces wonderful results. But, if you’re not a creative cloud member, you have to settle for its miserly export options.

Carbo

iOS/ Android; Free

This is like a blend of screen and paper. It allows you scan sketches made on paper, which could be converted to vectors for further edits and additions.

Notability

iOS/ Android; Free

This is more of a note taker than a sketching app; however, it can be used for sketching, writing/scribbling, and even and audio recordings.
