Sketching On A Mobile Phone

Recommended Posts

Guest Alexius

hey guys

 

I am in need of a new mobile phone' and was wondering if any one knows of any which have a feature where you can do quick sketches. Usually with the small pens you get with many new touch screen phones?

so say if i think of an idea I can quickly jot it down when im on the train or resturant.

 

here is an example of what im on about (http://fmmobiles.ie/shop/images/Viewty.jpg)

 

Thanks

Al

Any phone running Windows will be able to do this (or an iphone if you feel like finger painting).

 

Keep in mind that the average mobile device has a screen resolution of only 320x240. This means you will be VERY limited in terms of what you could even capture. Some of the newer HTC devices have sharper displays that will be able to capture more, but overall it will be VERY challengine to sketch on.

 

My .02 would be to get yourself a stack of very nice, slim sketchbooks that are pocketable (I have some moleskin ones that are 5.5"x3.5"x.5" and easily fit into a pocket with a pen. That way you can actually draw what you want when you want and not have to worry about how bad the stylus is on your mobile device - because if you haven't tried this before, trust me, it's bad.

Hi Alexius,

If your phone is working on windows mobile, you can use pocket artist. It's like photoshop and very very useful for skeching and photo editing on mobile devices.

I'm using this software for almost 3 years without any problem.

Here is the address:
