Draw Something

Price: Free with in-app purchasesDOWNLOAD ON GOOGLE PLAYDraw Something isn’t like most drawing apps. That’s most because it’s a game. In this game, you draw things and then another player tries to guess what you drew. Then they draw something and you try to figure out what it is. It’s not necessarily for serious artists, but it does scratch that doodling itch. It adds the benefit of being social so you can do it with other people. The game is free to download but does include in-app purchases. DOWNLOAD ON GOOGLE PLAY

Ibis Paint

The app has over 140 different brushes, including dip pens, felt tip pens, actual paint brushes, and other fun stuff. In addition, you can record yourself drawing so you have a video of how you got there. It does have layer support and you can use as many layers as your device can handle. It even has features for specific types of drawing, such as manga. You can check out the free version with the paid version going for $4.99 as an in-app purchase.
