Due to the current state of the world, the pandemic, and the inability for schools to open, most people have started looking for means to earn money via their gadgets. While some venture into cryptocurrency, like bitcoin, etherium, etc, others are learning graphic designing, logo making, and other software related skills.
Here are some free and paid applications that are worth downloading for sketching ideas and creating new designs.
If you want to try it before you pay for the app, the free version includes an infinite canvas, infinite layers and an infinite undo and redo system (hence the name), layer options such as split, merge, flip and duplicate as well as five symmetry tools with the ability to import images to the canvas and add special effects and a path editing and pen tool for precise control.
Without paying for the full version, you'll be able to save your work as a JPEG, but the full version will give you the ability to save images as PNG, PSD or SVG, and it is also ad-free.
Created by Autodesk, Sketchbook is a free to download painting and drawing application that can help you achieve simple tasks like sketching out ideas to more complex undertakings that involve layers and intricate brushes.
The tools aren't as comprehensive as those found in the Sketchbook Pro app, which is available as an in-app purchase after downloading the free Sketchbook app, but it will do the trick for most designers that need a tool during moments of inspiration while out and about.
Adobe Comp is able to work on your Android device in compatibility with all Adobe software – this app lets graphic designers play around with text, shapes and fonts.
Free fonts are available to choose from Typekit, and the latest version now allows you to play around with third-party fonts installed on your device. This latest version also lets you instantly view mock ups, edit multiple selections and use keyboard shortcuts.
The best part of Adobe software is that you can sync your files to any device whenever you need them, this means that you can easily pick up your work from your device so you can edit it on your laptop.
Adobe Photoshop Sketch & Photoshop Mix:
Photoshop Sketch offers drawing tools like a graphite pencil, ink pen, blending markers and an eraser, as well as brushes including acrylic and pastel. It is basically the design tool that Photoshop made as a mobile app, so you should find it familiar and infinitely useful.
There's also the Photoshop Mix app that is aimed at photographers more than designers but it could come in handy. It's an app where you'll find Photoshop's other tools including Content-Aware Fill and Camera Shake Reduction, as well as other image enhancement features.
You could also try ArtFlow, it's a highly rated app that offers a free version for you to try before you decide whether to pay for the pro version as an in-app purchase.
With the free version, you'll get 20 tools, two layers and 6-step undo, while the Pro version offers more than 70 brushes and tools, infinite undo and redo, up to 16 layers, the ability to export to PSD and more.
