Despite the marketing speak in the description, there's absolutely nothing "innovative" or "powerful" about the capabilities of this app.

There's dozens of applications on MU that do a lot more -- and for free.

And if you're willing to spend the $29.99 they're asking for this app, you should go for something like Pixelmator instead.

I give it one star for the fact that they do offer a demo, and subtract half of that for printing "Demo Demo Demo Demo" all over the canvas you're supposed to try painting on.

Oh, and shipping with automatic update-check and automatic submission of system data is not something everybody cares for, and is something the app should ask you politely about first.

Supports Wacom tablets with pressure sensitivity:

With a Wacom tablet all the tools behave more natural, as if you would draw on real paper. Pressure sensitivity and the backside eraser of your Wacom tablet are both supported.

Powerful tools:

A range of powerful drawing tools are built to behave as you were drawing on paper. Set options for your tools as well.
  • Pencil
  • Brush
  • Airbrush
  • Calligraphic pen
  • Eraser
Predefined colors, millions of choices:

To start right away we built predefined colors right in. Professionals can surely mix their own colors to choose from 16.7 million possible colors. Use opacity to get even better results.

Zoom and pan, working in detail:

Draw in detail with the zoom and pan tools. Use multitouch gestures to zoom in or out, or to pan. An inspector allows you to see where you are in the painting when you are zoomed in.

You can even turn on a grid to let you get a more detailed overview of your drawings and illustrations

Image shelf, autosaving:

Sketchoo manages your drawings automatically in a shelf, no saving required! Sketchoo does it all for you. Maybe you want too get on with an old drawing? No problem, it is all in the shelf.

Self portrait mode:

Sketchoo even helps you painting self-portraits. Make a snapshot of yourself with the built-in snapshot function using your FaceTime Camera and draw over the photo to get a great looking self-portrait. You can also use it to draw fun stuff over your friends or even yourself!

Sharing selections or the whole illustration:

Sketchoo allows you to share your artwork via Facebook, Flickr or via Mail. Even better, there is no need to share the whole image when you just want to show a part of it. Just make your selection, click on "share" and done.

And there is more:

Sketchoo also supports undo and redo, has a fast wiping option to clean your complete canvas and also lets you duplicate images.
