I recently purchased an iPad. After many considerations, I decided that it would be a great tool for my day to day work, specially while traveling. I like to sketch a lot, and downloaded SketchBook O, a free painting and drawing App created specifically for O readers. While, the intent of this App is for The Oprah Magazine readers to share their creativity through the iPad, I figured I'd give it a try for my own projects.
So far, the App is effective for writing down room dimensions at client's place. I uploaded a plan and was able to superpose the dimensions by hand, as shown below. (Excuse the poor hand writing). It was very practical.
I was also able to create quick sketches and add colors to illustrate various concepts for a bathroom. So far I really like it and I'll probably buy the full version for iPad, SketchBook Pro soon. Sketchbook O good but limited0. (e.g. 15 preset brushes instead of 75 , 3 Layers instead of 6, etc.).
There's a lot that can be done with Sketchbook Pro. Check out what artist Kyle Runciman was able to do with this App. Time to sharpen my drawing skills :)
... oh yes I also have a copy of Angry birds. Who doesn't! :)
