Autodesk SketchBook Mobile uses the same engine as Autodesk SketchBook Pro desktop software, delivering much of the same power and functionality to mobile devices. A combination of high-quality digital pencils, pens, markers and airbrushes, as well as an artist-friendly, gesture-based user interface, helps enable users to capture their ideas as quick informal sketches or produce artwork on-the-go. A wide range of designers, illustrators, graphic artists, students and hobbyists are among the millions of people who have downloaded SketchBook Mobile since its debut in 2009.
“The popularity of the SketchBook products has shown that people want to generate creative content on their mobile devices, not simply consume it,” said Samir Hanna, vice president of Consumer Products at Autodesk. “We’re excited to offer SketchBook Mobile to the millions of consumers around the world who rely on mobile devices running on the Android platform.”
