    Drawing or Sketching on the iPad 

    Turns out today is the iPad’s first birthday so more apps on going on sale, such as the drawing app “Procreate” which has dropped from $8 to free: http://appshopper.com/entertainment/procreate

    Another free drawing app is Adobe Ideas, but probably the most well-known and best developed drawing app is Brushes, which – sadly – is not on sale and usually runs about $8. Even if you’re not an artist (I am certainly not), drawing on the iPad with a stylus is a lot of fun, especially when you experiment with lots of colors and brush styles without needing all the equipment.
