Ink for iOS

By Colin McFarland

This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.


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

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

— Sketch instantly
— Tap grabber for share options or pull grabber up to save and clear
— Long press to erase for a few seconds; only enough time for quick fixes.


"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,

What's New in Version 1.3


This update adds some popular user requested utilities to help you get the job done.

Erase — Long press to erase for a few seconds; only enough time for quick fixes.

Inks (available as In App Purchase) — Sketch in Oxblood Red, Victoria Blue, Pea Green, and Burnt Orange.

Minimalist scribble pad

There are lots of complicated drawing and painting apps on the app store so if you want something fancy, don't get this. If you want a clean, simple, easy to use scribble pad, this one is my personal favorite - I recommend giving it a shot. If you are looking for something fancy, don't download this and then give it a crappy review because of lack of features. Minimalist means simple.

Real paper for your iPad. It works!

Simple and easy to use with no "settings" to break your train of thought. Just a pen and paper. For $4.00 you can get four more colors. Cheaper than an analog pad of paper and pens, and great when you want to quickly jot something down or make a quick sketch and don't want to use a full-featured drawing app.

I love this simple scribble app

This is a perfect little scratch pad app on my phone. Every night I have my phone by my bed, and often use it to jot down quick ideas or sketches before going to sleep. I love the simplicity and minimal UI. My only nitpick is that the screen flickers slightly when saving an image, but well worth the 5 stars!
