Ink for iOS

By Colin McFarland

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.


Ink is a canvas for instantly capturing a rough sketch or back-of-a-napkin idea. The only features are smooth ink on soft paper with built-in sharing.

True to our philosophy: Feature number one should always be as few features as needed to perform the primary purpose.

— Sketch and capture instantly
— Double tap grabber for actions

— Pull up on the grabber for instant capture and clear

"Ink perfectly reproduces the simple joy of sketching away on a pad of paper" — Martin Bryant,

"Ink gets right to the point and stays out of the way" — Dave Caolo,

"Ink is a quick loading and simple sketchpad for fast idea capture" — Thorin Klowowski,

^The ink featured is by Mike Rohde, author of The Sketchnote Handbook and Illustrator of REWORK

Simple but Effective.

I really like this app. I like that it is just black ink on white canvas. No erase button is great because it teaches you how to work with your mistakes.

The only thing: I wish it had a few width differences only because I draw pen illustrations and you can vary how the pen draws in real life. So just a few width would be good.

Also I notice that when using this app it adds straight lines to my drawing. Lines that I never drew in the first place. I don't know why it does this but it can be an issue and not always something I can work around. So if this is fixed then I might use it again! Also this is why I gave it 3 stars!

I Tried to see if there was a contact page in your website but didn't see any. So if you do have contact you should add that to the site.

Otherwise good app.

An app that is just like a piece of paper.

I’ve thought many times, “I wish there were an app that was just like a piece of paper.” BAM! Here it is. Wish granted! Thank you!

Though I would like some sort of erase or undo function, I do like having to be ok with the way it is, or start all over. That’s deep, man.

I was surprised to see a really enjoy this app.

I have lots of drawing apps on my iPad. I use them all and fret about features that they lack. So I was surprised to see how much I enjoy an app that has essentially one feature: draw.
