I recently downloaded the latest drawing app available for the iPhone. I have not been a huge fan of the others as they never felt quite right. Autodesk seems to have offered up something truly good, Autodesk Sketchbook Mobile.
The main difference I felt between Autodesk’s offering and Brushes was that Sketchbook lacked the ‘vector-esc’ functionality which brushes relies on and instead implemented a system where the data is all bitmap. Brushes uses XML data to draw, though it works well it doesn’t feel all that natural or responsive. Also Sketchbook carried over its rather intuitive tool set from its desktop offering Sketchbook Pro. Over all Sketch book is a really solid offering and definitely worth the $2.99 cost.
