"If you like Pictionary but hate cleaning up all those scraps of paper, SketchParty TV is the game for you." - Macworld

NEW! Completely redesigned. Dark Mode. Drag-and-drop Team setup screen. Time bonuses awarded for speed. As seen in WWDC keynote!

SketchParty TV is the fun Pictionary-style drawing and guessing party game to play on your iPad and Apple TV!

You could buy an easel, a huge pad of paper, and some markers, then write down a really long list of words and make up some rules and try and keep track of points and get marker smudges all over your furniture. But who wants to do that?


You could play a fun drawing game using items you already have around the house, like your iPad, high-definition television, and Apple TV. Just enable AirPlay Mirroring, choose sides, and start a SketchParty. It's so simple!

SketchParty TV is a team game like Pictionary or "Win, Lose or Draw", and up to 8 players per team can join in on the fun. That's a pretty big party! And it's fun for ages 8 and up.

Gather up your family, call your friends, and SketchParty today!

Note: SketchParty TV requires an AirPlay Mirroring-capable device and either SketchParty TV running on the 4th generation Apple TV or an Apple TV 2 or later to play. SketchParty TV can also be played using Apple's AV adapter or a Mac/PC app like Reflector. (See for device compatibility.)

Connectivity issues


No matter if you are doing tv mode or through airplay this is littered with connectivity issues. Don’t waste your money on a game that works for a partial amount of time. I am running and iPad Pro and an Apple TV 4K yet somehow it cannot stay synced. I have a strong reliable network powered by an Asus AC 3100. Apple TV has direct connection with network, still unable to maintain a good connection. App is not worthy of the 5 star reviews that it has.

Needs to speak the words

Wayland Chin

Please make an option in the app to make it say the word out loud when a word is correctly guessed. I use this to teach English for ESL students.

Developer Response

Hi Wayland – this is a great suggestion, and while it unfortunately took awhile to get to, this feature will be in the next release! Stay tuned for version 4.3.

worth every penny


sketchparty has entertained countless party guests with it’s easy to use, high resolution screen app. the larger the device, the better, but the instant mirroring to the apple tv has made it worth every penny.
