Support Any decent Drawing/Paintings Apps for this pressure sensitive screen?

    Hello -

    I'm a professional artist and one of my primary interests in this phone was the Wacom technology in the S-pen with Pressures Sensitive Screen. I enjoy SMemo, but are there any more sophisticated art making programs which take advantage of this? I've looked at a few but none seem to respond to pressure sensitivity.

    Thanks!

    I'm certainly not a professional artist, FAR from it in fact, but SBM (Sketch Book Mobile) is pretty good.

    Lots of features, and multi layers etc, BUT it doesnt recognise the pressure applied from the S-PEN unfortunately.

    Omnisketch is quite good fun - nice brushes but unfortunately it is very limited, no photo import for example.

    I am waiting patiently for Sketch Book Mobile to add pressure sensitivity. But I'm not holding my breath... seems like their updates are few and far between. Painting/drawing apps are just lacking on Android; there are just so many more and better ones on iOS. :(

    But I do love the fluidity of the pencil mode on the S-Note app. I am finding I can do a nice sketch there, then export to gallery, and then import it into a layer in Sketchbook Mobile. Set the layer to "multiply" mode, and then you can do all the coloring in a layer under it.

    I'm the developer for Doodledroid. My program supports pressure sensitivity. I haven't tested with the S-Pen, but I have had good feedback from people with S-Pen devices. Doodledroid is now FREE by the way. If you give it a try, let me know what you think!

    You can check out some samples on www.Doodledroid.net

    I know this is an old thread but I've made an app with really good pressure sensitive inking for the Note. It's called DoodleInk and it's on Google Play. More of a cartooning app than a generalized drawing app.
