The UI design of Sketch Pad HD consists of a set of icon placed at the bottom and on the right side of the screen. The icons at the bottom deal with color and drawing tool choosing and switching to full screen. The icons at the ride side manage import, save, setting, undo and redo.

RESOURCES: (Rating 4/5)

The Sketch Pad HD consumes around 21 to 25 MB of ram. The app freezes sometimes. Strangely, the app requires some permission which we think is not required for a drawing app like – Your location – Fine (GPS) Location, coarse (network-based) location and Phone calls – read phone state and identity. A complete list of permissions can be found on the permissions tab here.


COST & IN-APP: (Rating 4/5)

The Sketch Pad HD is free to download from Google Play. It displays ads on the top of the page which may create hassle to draw in that region. Click here to get Sketch Pad HD on Google Play.

TAE Rating: 4.3/5
