Do away with using overly complicated software to create a stage plot or resorting to drawing on a bar napkin. Napkin Sketch, the app, is your answer! To create a sketch, simply pick your stage size, drag and drop elements onto the sketch and when you're done, either e-mail or save the sketch right to your camera roll! Want to come back to a sketch? File it away and you can always edit it later. So easy… a musician can do it! (Ok, we're kidding about the musician part, but seriously this app is easy to use!)
Ok, so what's the difference between the basic app and the professional upgrade? I'm glad you asked. Both apps function exactly the same way, and give you the same features, same ability to save and send sketches. However, the pro upgrade gives those users who's needs are a little more demanding some extra tools.
There are 3 main differences between the basic app and pro upgrade are:
In the basic version, the sketcher is given the three most common stage sizes to start sketching with; 24'x32', 40'x40' and 60'x40'. In the pro version, you can enter your own stage sizes.
Also, in the basic version, the sketcher is limited to just basic stage shapes, however the pro version adds a stage editor tab that allows the sketcher to draw odd sized stages, adding thrusts, stage wings, etc.
Lastly, the pro version allows the user to select an image from their camera roll to use as a custom logo in the header box. This allows bands or companies to add their own logo to the sketch.
Listen, here at Napkin Sketch, we don't claim to be perfect, but we highly value user input and feedback. Drop us a note via e-mail, facebook or twitter with your ideas and comments. As future versions are being built we're going to heavily incoroprate user feedback to create the best possible sketching experience!

Ratings and Reviews
Potentially a Great App
This app is something I would use all the time except even with the pro upgrade it's missing some essential things--like keyboard stands, overhead mics, boom mics at standing level, wedge monitors, wind and brass instruments (they do have sax & trumpet--but with cartoonish characters attached; no trombone, flute, clarinet, bari sax, etc…) and upright acoustic bass (again without the character). Also when I sent the first finished Stage Plot to my email, the app froze on the email page, forcing me to delete the app and reinstall; thus losing all of my work.
Crap rip off
I wrote a long review and it couldn't be uploaded The first time so I'm going to give a quick synopsis.
It's a piece of crap that doesn't function and the company is dishonest enough to charge more money for the most basic things that are needed to use it.
It crashed the first time I touched it and after opening it again the second item I wanted to use a simple kick drum had to be purchased for a $1.99. I tested emailing the clot and the App completely froze.
This company is trying to sell you an item that hasn't been developed an item that doesn't work plus they're trying to trap you into buying more things just to get it to function in the most basic manner.
It's like buying a car and then finding out that you have to pay for the keys in order to drive it off the lot.
I want my money back!
Good for quick set up notes
I like this app. I do agree that it could use a lot more icons, hopefully we’ll get more in future updates or add-on purchases. Useful for “simple” stage plot info. Better than a lot of plots I receive from bands or managers.
