The Apps - We experimented with three different iPad specific drawing apps: Brushes, SketchBook and Paper. #eLearningEd
#1 - Brushes
Brushes - iPad Edition (£5.49)
Made famous by David Hockney back in 2010, good well-rounded sketch app, has a great time-lapse video export option (see our YouTube video).

#2 - SketchBook
Sketchbook Pro for iPad (£2.99)
The most technical and fully featured of the three apps. Sometimes a little fiddly when the interface is busy, but plenty of possibilities for the more adventurous artist.

#3 - Paper
Paper by FiftyThree (iPad) (Free) (+£5.49 for Essentials toolset)
Lovely aesthetic, minimal interface and a substantially reduced toolset compared to the other two. Without a doubt this app takes the least effort to generate some beautiful sketches.
#4 - Tumblr
Tumblr (iPhone) (Free)
“Digital Scrapbooking” - we decided on the micro-blogging site Tumblr to collate all our photos, drawings and videos in one tidy location. We also paired the Tumblr account with our Twitter for automated tweet publishing.
