Lumiappaday #289: Sketch Board demoed on the Nokia Lumia 900

| August 31, 2012 | 3 Replies

Sketch Board is a pretty decent sketch app, with some very decent controls for drawing. Pan along with pinch and zoom is accurate and responsive and does not result in drawing accidentally all over the page. You’ve got the usual pen/pencil, eraser, colour changer as well as undo/redo (which can undo everything one step at a time) and new sketch.

In settings you can go ahead and increase the canvas size, though it would be nice to dictate where that addition is placed – e.g. if I need to add something on the left side.
