Selected as a Top Ten Drawing and Note-taking app by!


UPGRADE TO PENCILICIOUS *PLUS directly from within the app to eliminate the limits that this version puts on how many pages and notebooks you can create and the watermark added to pages that you export.

Purchase useful paper overlays in sets. Each of these Overlays can be used with your choice of paper background, creating a notebook that is unique to you.
*Create your own Calendar and To-Do List Notebooks.
*Sketch out your very own iPad or iPhone App Designs.
*Sketch out musical notes in a Music Staff Notebook.

Beautiful and fast retina-quality ink is what you'll find in Pencilicious' brushes. Choose from 5 brush sizes and 9 color palettes; change transparency to produce highlighter and chalk effects. Brush style, color and transparency can be modified at any time. Choose a specific palette for your drawing, with the option to change that palette at any time.

With just a tap, add a colored fill to any enclosed area. The fill area stays with its boundary strokes so you can move your filled object around the page. Fill color and transparency can be easily modified at any time.

Pencilicious lets you easily manipulate strokes and shapes after they have been created. Select one or more strokes and perform cut, copy, paste, re-size and deform actions. Make a stray mark? Erase or move it. Draw a sloppy square? Drag the endpoints to neaten it up. Want to repeat an object? Copy and paste, then drag to re-size. Easily copy objects from one page or notebook to another.

Two-finger pinch zooming is the newest feature added to Pencilicious. Now get up close with your drawings and notes for even easier ink editing!

Don't stress about mistakes or changes. Pencilicious lets you back out of unwanted changes with undo and redo actions.

Personalize your notebooks with a name, topic and distinctive cover. Pencilicious organizes your notebooks both by topic and by date: Quickly scroll through all your notebooks in chronological order when in portrait view; rotate to landscape to see notebooks organized by topic and flip right to a particular page in any notebook.

Whether you want plain white paper, a blackboard effect or textured art paper, Pencilicious’ 15 background papers let you personalize the look of your notebook. And if you need some structure to to your paper, overlay your choice of 2 grids or 4 types of lines on any paper.

With many export options, Pencilicious notebooks and pages are easy to share. Send a full notebook or a single page to Dropbox, e-mail, iTunes or your iPad's photo library. Take a photo or choose any image from your photo library to add to your notebook. Once on your page you can resize the image and make notes or draw over it.

Customer Reviews

superlicious pencilicious

What a nice sketching app! Being able to cut copy and paste parts of my drawing and then change the color and size of the copies really makes for an effective way of testing out different ideas. The lines are so smooth. I upgraded and got the calendars and to-do lists and made my own day planner that I can sketch in. I hope the developers keep improving - like adding a dedicated highlighter tool. I find the interface to be modern and arty - I am a little tired of fake leather bound stuff.

Fun Pretty Notes

Love this for note taking with simple colored sketches etc. Easy to navigate and lots of options for colors, covers. I would prefer the color options to be available at once as opposed to changing palettes. An option to select your own color would be awesome. Crashes often when I make long connected lines (writing a full word in cursive for example.) If I didn't have that issue then I would definitely upgrade!

Awesome writing app.

So creative and fun!
