Inkflow is a new entrant to the crowded iPad sketch market. It’s free, although it comes with only one ink colour (Any colour you like! As long as it’s black) and a pen, but unlimited notebooks.
A £2.99 In-App Purchase provides you with multiple colours, a brush, pencil, and an eraser tool; the free version can delete elements, but you have to use the selection tool to do so, which can be a little tricky. Notably, it’s a Universal app too.
Inkflow has one really nice feature, in the shape of its selection tool. Tap on the tool, drag around something on the page, and the standard ‘marching ants’ indicate what’s selected.
You can then drag this anywhere on your paper, or resize it by simply dragging from a grab handle.
This allows you to draw something at large scale using your finger and resize it down, which means you can create details which would otherwise be very difficult. For free, it’s worth a try out.
