August 8, 2011 - OmniSketch listed by PC Magazine as one of The 100 Best iPad Apps.
OmniSketch is listed in the iTunes Essential Paint & Drawing Apps section.
OmniSketch is a procedural drawing tool that allows you to create stunning sketches with very little effort. A procedural brush is a brush that uses a mathematical algorithm to draw patterns. These patterns can interact with lines that have already been drawn to produce amazing effects. The speed at which you draw will affect the look of the brush you are using. The brush algorithm can also be adjusted to produce different effects.
Now you might be reading this thinking, “There are already a large number of really good painting and drawing tools so what does OmniSketch bring to the game?” Instead of standard brushes and pencils, OmniSketch’s brushes use mathematical algorithms to draw patterns which interact with previously drawn lines to produce a cool sketch with detailed effects.
One of the coolest OmniSketch features is its mirrored drawing mode. You can opt to have your strokes mirrored across your iPad’s screen (top and bottom, left and right or both options) to produce really stunning designs.

Ratings and Reviews
Most unique collection of procedural brushes
OmniSketch has been on my assorted iDevices for years, and it runs just fine in iOS 10. It has quite an array of interesting effects brushes, especially if you add the geometry set.
While it's useful as is, I'd love to see at least an image layer added so that I could fit use pre-existing art or photos as a reference. As other reviewers have noted it would also be helpful to have better color controls.
Kaleidoscope isn't true to kaleidoscope, only a four-way split. Disappointing!
I bought this thing thinking it is a art toy of some sort. 'Let's look what guys are thinking - it's cheap anyway' - that's what I thought. Wow! Some tools really look like a toy, but at least half of the brushes combined with different modes in several minutes can really give you almost the same result as if you were drawing for hours! If you feel like a great painter and planning an exhibition - you might not want some procedural stuff (still it is interesting for works of art in itself!), but if you work a lot on sketches and stuff and you need the most satisfying results in shorter time - this one can be sometimes better then SketchBook Pro for example! And if you have both and jump back and forth (via 'photo roll') you can have awesome results in no time and have some inspiration on the way! Totally worth it's price and great app! It could be more expensive and still be worth it!
P.S.: on a second thought - this is one of the best spent money in app store! Really impressed!
