The app is as powerful as it is stylish. As simple and mobile as sketching on a paper pad, SketchPad for iPad adds sophisticated tools up until now available only with sophisticated computers or heavy, cumbersome laptops.

Conventional storyboarding is a laborious process. Each new scene requires a separate sheet of paper. A serious error, damage or loss means the artist has to throw out the paper and start again. Sharing the finished storyboard means shipping it, sometimes across great distances and always at great cost, hoping it doesn’t get lost or damaged in transport. The editing process is protracted as well. Even if writing partners or studio reps email their requested changes, it still takes time to draw up new storyboards and send them off all over again.

SketchPad eliminates all these hassles and more. Storyboard directly on the iPad’s virtual paper. No matter how many pages, the storyboard never gets heavier or more difficult to carry.
