Inkpad is an open-source vector illustration app. It was designed from scratch for the iPad. It supports paths, compound paths, text, images, groups, masks, gradient fills, and an unlimited number of layers.
Inkpad was designed with performance in mind – it can easily handle drawings with hundreds to thousands of shapes without bogging down. Export your finished illustrations directly to your Dropbox as SVG or PDF.
• Very high performance. Select, scale and rotate hundreds of objects with zero lag.
• Create arbitrary bezier paths with the Pen tool.
• Create compound paths, masks and groups.
• Create text objects.
• Place photos from your albums.
• Boolean operators on paths (Unite, Intersect, Exclude, Subtract Front)
• Powerful scale and rotate tools.
• Gradient fills with interactive editing on canvas.
• Arbitrary stroke dash patterns.
• Swatch library.
• Unlimited layers per drawing.
• Rename, rearrange, delete, hide and lock layers.
• Adjust layer transparency.
• Snap to grid, points, and path edges.
• Isolate the active layer for easy editing.
• Email drawings as SVG, PDF, PNG and JPEG.
• Send SVG, PDF, PNG, and JPEG directly to your Dropbox.

The Real Illustrator!
How is it, that something as wonderful as this can be created but yet Adobe still struggle to rebuild Illustrator for the iPad? (Even iDraw pales against this)
I've looked everywhere for a vector drawing app and this little app does so much with such simplicity.
Illustrator was my app of choice for the PC but now I have Inkpad, Illustrator is now redundant.
The simple functions of Inkpad still allows for greater creativity, especially in finding better ways to design things. There is so much scope. And above all, it's FREE!
Only one thing I would really want as an update is folders for layers. It gets a bit messy with so many layers and I don't like combining in case I need them separated again. A folders option would round this app off perfectly!
I was looking for a simple to use app to create some cartoons for a book I'm creating for my children. I tried several apps on my laptop and iPad and this is by far the best.
The app does crash if I choose the 'bring forward' or 'send backwards' option too many times but it saves the changes as you go along so I haven't more than a couple of changes at a time.
So easy to use. Easy to export (have only used the option to export to .png so far)
Really pleased to have discovered it 😀
Can't believe this app is free. Brilliant for basic vector design. Not had too long to play with this but so far I'm loving it. Just needs a paint bucket tool (there might be one somewhere but I didn't see one). I'm sure it will continue to improve. Would be great to open AI files though, even with limited functions and layers available. Keep it up inkpad
