Autodesk announced that Autodesk SketchBook Mobile is available on the App Store. Autodesk SketchBook Mobile is a new professional-grade paint and drawing app that offers a full set of sketching tools in a streamlined and intuitive user interface designed specifically for the iPhone and iPod touch.
"Mobile apps are becoming increasingly advanced, moving beyond simple entertainment or utilitarianism," said Robert "Buzz" Kross, senior vice president, Manufacturing Industry Group at Autodesk. "We are delighted to offer an app on the App Store for industrial designers and the creative community. With the SketchBook Mobile App, Autodesk continues its long-standing tradition of bringing cost-effective professional design technology to the market."
The SketchBook Mobile App uses the same engine as Autodesk SketchBook Pro painting and drawing software, delivering much of the same power and functionality as the desktop application. A combination of high-quality digital pencils, pens, markers and airbrushes, as well as an artist-friendly, gesture-based user interface, enables users to create everything from quick sketches to print-quality production artwork.
Key features in the SketchBook Mobile App include:
Content that is created in SketchBook Mobile can be saved as a picture and opened in SketchBook Pro. As a result, artists, designers and anyone who likes to sketch or create artwork can create a drawing at any time with SketchBook Mobile, and continue building on their idea in SketchBook Pro.
SketchBook Mobile App is available for $2.99 from the App Store on iPhone and iPod touch.
A free Autodesk SketchBook Mobile Express App is also available on the App Store.
