This chapter introduces new features, as well as the improvements & enhancements that can be found in the latest release of SketchBook.

Android 3.7

If you are the kind of person who likes to roll the dice and leave things to chance, we dig it. Randomized color has been added to SketchBook. Quickly lay down varying colored strokes using the same brush. In the Color Editor, tap the arrow at the bottom of the Color Wheel to enable Randomize and set how crazy you want to get.

We designed the interface of SketchBook to keep you in the zone, free of distractions, so you can focus on drawing. We know that sometimes the screen you’re drawing on is small, so we added a feature to hide interface elements that are a little too close to your finger when drawing.

Now, purchase a SketchBook Subscription using your Google Play account, right here on your mobile device. A SketchBook Subscription unlocks the SketchBook Pro features across all your devices, including Mac, Windows, iOS, and Android, with a single purchase.
