The iPad includes its own notetaking tool, but it is a little limited. SketchPad is, as the name would suggest, an iPad sketching app, but one that can also be used as a notetaking tool. Ads the app can be used to create documents using both text and images, it is rather more versatile than other similar apps.

With a choice of papers available - plain, ruled, graph and yellow - notes and sketches can be colour coded according to their category or purpose. The different papers can also be useful when creating different types of notes.

For added versatility, pen size and colour can be adjusted, and this is particularly useful when using the app as a sketchpad. Undo and redo options are available so you can correct mistakes with ease.

Whether the app is used for making notes of things you need to remember or sketches of potential DIY projects, it is incredibly versatile. The notes you create can be kept for yourself, or shared with others via Facebook or Twitter.

Verdict

A simple yet well thought out notetaking tool which includes sufficient extra options to make it stand out from the competition.
