Inkpad is a vector drawing tool released by Steve Sprang. 

This application is a professional vector drawing package for the iPad, from the designer of brushes.

The basics of the application, allow you select from your gallery or add a new image. Using the tools available you can draw lines and shapes, and add text to your image. You can then export this image out or even print directly.

There are lots of options within the application allowing you to import images from other sources and edit them. There are many professional options if you want to use them like layers, masks, paths and anchor points. But you can completely ignore them if you just want to draw something freehand.

I particularly liked the multi selection tool, that allows you to align things you have drawn and undo which allowed dozens of undos.

The user interface is very good with lots of simple tools in the less advanced screens, and more advanced tools if you want to use them.

On the upside:

  • Well designed user interfaces.
  • Excellent drawing tool
  • Lots of export options, including dropbox.

On the downside:

  • Takes a little while to learn more than the basics (help file is useful for this)

Overall, this is an excellent drawing package. Along side Brushes Steve Sprang has almost tied up the drawing market for the iPad. I was impressed with this professional vector illustration application. My kids loved this applications as it was simple to do the basics and reshape objects they were not happy with.
