Zen Sketch is a cross between a note-taking and a painting app. We wanted to give people an app with a balance between power and simplicity: A place that could stay out of the way and let them think, but also contained an environment with the ability to add serious detail to their work. And so Zen Sketch was born. The app goes beyond regular ink handwriting apps by using an industry standard drawing/painting engine, but still organizes your work in a logical fashion like any good note-taking app.

Use Zen Sketch to create powerful notes or paintings. All your work can easily be exported out of the app as images or PDFs, and shared in just about every way imaginable. The app has no learning curve, and lets you work in a streamlined and clean interface designed with the latest technology in mind.

We hope you like the Zen Sketch. And if you do, be sure to check out some of the other great Zen apps we’ve made.

Dear fishington studios,
If you read this, please bring back ZenSketch. Or tell us how to access the year+ of entries. Baffled there is no contact link on your beautiful website.

Cool app



Simple useless app....


There are only 9 simple basic brushes and no way to alter them, can't change their thickness or opacity or pressure sensitivity or anything. There are many colors to choose from but so few brushes to use. There are soooo many other better drawing apps out there that give you MUCH more creative control and so many more tools. The only thing this may be good for is note taking with a stylus because it gives you the ability to create several different notebooks, something completely unnecessary in a drawing/sketching app unless you're super into organizing your art. Also the app saves your work inside the app, didn't see a way to save it to the camera roll.
