    A magnetic sketchbook app for artists

    • Easy to use
    • Complete
    • There are other similar tools

    "Let Your Art Flow"


    ArtFlow • Tablet Sketchbook is a well-crafted and professional sketchbook especially design for tablets or big devices. The app will allow artists and creative people unleash their potential and make good use of all the included tools.


    Usability is amazing and you will quickly learn how it all works. Use your fingers to zoom in and out and open the toolbox to reveal all the available tools you can use.


    Well, there are some similar apps in the market, but that doesn't mean this isn't worth your time if you're searching for a highly professional yet easy-to-use sketchbook app.

This fast and intuitive painting and drawing application will unlock full power of your imagination. With support for pressure sensitive pens (like Samsung's S Pen) you device will be changed into real canvas.

    • Selection and selection masks
    • Color adjustment (HSV, brightness & saturation and more)
    • Infinite* undo and redo
    • up to 16–32** layers with 11 different blending modes and global opacity
    • Hi-res canvas - up to 2048x2048, 2560x2560 or 4096x4096**
    • Separate flow (tip alpha) and opacity (stroke) control for brushes
    • Non-incremental flow
    • Material design inspired, fast, fluid, intuitive and accessible user interface
    • Export to PSD (Photoshop image), PNG or JPEG

    • Active edge shortcut system
    • NVIDIA DirectStylus support
    • Palm rejection - no more accidental zooming and panning when drawing***

    You can paint, sketch and draw with ease thanks to fast and fluid brush engine. ArtFlow aims to replace your physical sketchpad and become universal art studio type application for Android.

    Probably the best Android art app available. However, it is notably lacking the abilities to organize files into galleries or to copy/paste between files. Outside of those I think the program is solid and has all the features other programs lack; my personal favorite being the adjustable axis in the various 'transform' features.

    For me, the toolbars auto-hide every time the s-pen gets near the screen, which makes the app unusable on my samsung note 8.0. I would love it if you could add an option to lock the toolbars (keep them visible) even when s-pen is near (possibly makes sense to also disable finger-touch on toolbars when s-pen is near). Otherwise, your app looks amazing. Thanks & good luck. Update: Thanks for your reply, but long-press on the dot button doesn't work for me. I'm using cyanogen mod instead of stock rom (just in case this is relevant). I can send you a movie of the issue if this helps? Cheers.

    Superb and streamlined digital sketching app. Smooth performance on even a slower tablet. Nice brushes. Very sleek and functional UI. I can have the color picker assigned to the S Pen button. For that i needed to disable Air Command with an app called BK Package Disabler. Artflow is worth the price because it just works.
