With a stylus, they’re even easier to use, but they generally require only a steady finger and of course a creative mind. Here we have briefed out some of the best drawing apps, for the iPad.

Paper by Fifty Three


Paper by FiftyThree is an easy-to-use app with an amazing interface. This app makes it easy to note down or sketch the ideas in the mind, while on the go. It is equipped with features like expressive inks, natural color mixing, a smooth pencil tool, superb water color effects and much more. In case of a mistake or an unwanted mark, the user can undo or ‘rewind’ the action, by using two fingers to swipe counterclockwise in a circle. This app lets the user to create new notebooks, give them names and add cover art to them. These journals can be organized by moving and duplicating pages. Users can save their creations or even share them via camera roll, email, Tumblr, Facebook and Twitter. There is also an ability to make a PDF version of the sketchbook and share it via Dropbox, iBooks and iOS Kindle or import it into Adobe Photoshop.



This app has nearly all the tools that one may need to produce intense work of art. It combines a natural drawing interface with tons of brushes, arrays of oils and water colors and other painting and drawing tools at the finger tip. And of course, there is an unlimited supply of (virtual) blank canvas to show your creativity. The user can easily add layers to a painting and work on individual layers without damaging others. There is a wide range of layer blend modes where the contents of the layers can be scaled, moved and rotated independently. The app also enables importing photos, converting them to oil or just pinning them to the canvas for reference.

This one is a really easy to use and powerful digital paining app with rich brush engine and an artist-friendly interface.
