As an example, my long dormant handwriting and drawing fetish was revived by Grafio because it was so inexpensive compared to similar apps for my Mac.
Far less expensive is Penultimate which works well as a basic note taking app, but has in-app components which add more functionality.
Your iPad’s screen is the notebook and your finger is the pen. Sketch or draw, it could not be more intuitive to use Penultimate for drawing sketches, or creating notes in a notebook.
Penultimate comes with three different styles of photorealistic paper, an erase, colors and pens. Create notebooks for projects or topics, whether of notes or drawings.
Each drawing stroke looks exactly as if it came from a high quality pen in bright, vibrant colors. There’s a built-in wrist protection mode on the drawing pad so your wrist can touch the screen while you draw or take notes.
As with most good iPad drawing and notes apps, Penultimate shares. Simple touch the iOS Share button. Files can be saved via Dropbox or Evernote integration (the Evernote company owns Penultimate). Photos or images can be dropped onto the page with ease.
What you’ll want more of are digital paper designs, and those range from 99-cents to $2.99 (for the music paper collection), but they’re easily added right from your iPad in Penultimate.
The tools are simple to master and easily accessed from the top toolbar or the bottom of the screen popups.
