SketchBook Pro App Review

Sketchbook Pro is the mobile version of a Mac OS X and Microsoft Windows-based graphics editing and design software. Originally the software was developed by Alias Systems Corporation, but is now owned by Autodesk after their acquisition of Alias.

The SketchBook Pro app provides users with both professional features and ease of use. Adjusting to the app’s interface is a breeze. The app’s user interface has been streamlined to make it easy for mobile users to fully utilize the features despite the smaller work-space due to limited screen size on the mobile devices.

The application also features shortcut panels and customizable menu layouts. Multi-touch features are also utilized to provide shortcuts and quick-commands.

If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
