About this app

Convert your device into a digital sketchbook with more than 80 paint brushes, smudge, fill and an eraser tool. This fast and intuitive painting and drawing application will unlock the full power of your imagination. With support for pressure sensitive pens (like Samsung's S Pen) your device will be transformed into a real canvas.

Important: this is a free application with advanced features requiring a pro license in-app purchase. Single licence purchase will activate all devices associated with your Google account.

Features (some functions require pro license):
• High performance (GPU accelerated) paint engine
• Canvases up to 6144x6144 with 50 layers*
• Stylus pressure support
• Pressure simulation for touches
• 100+ brushes and tools (including smudge tool and gradient fill)
• Create custom brushes from imported images
• Selection and selection masks
• Layer clipping mask
• 10 layer filters (HSV adjust, brightness & saturation, color curves and more)
• Material design inspired, fast, fluid, intuitive and accessible user interface
• Import and export supports PNG, JPG and PSD (Photoshop Document)
• NVIDIA DirectStylus support
• Palm rejection - no more accidental zooming and panning when drawing

*) depending on device and available memory
†) some devices are incompatible with pressure simulation and palm rejection


You can paint, sketch and draw with ease thanks to fast and fluid brush engine. ArtFlow aims to replace your physical sketchpad and become universal art studio type application for Android™.

I love this program so very much! I've been using it since 2019 on my Note 9 and I've made entire comic books with it. I just export as PSD, touch up stuff and add text in photoshop. It has most of the stuff I'd use in photoshop and nothing more, which is handy for focusing on work, and not going through a ton of menus to do basic things like in Clip Studio makes it a pleasant experience. Keep in mind, my experience is ONLY with the Galaxy Note phones.

I've used this for years on my Samsung products, most recently in my Note 9 and it's been great. But I added it to my Samsung Tab 6 Lite, and it's lost half is functionality (crashes instead of importing images, etc), AND it keeps crashing in the midst of a sketch, no warning, no autosave. So I keep losing my latest additions no matter how often I save it. Time to find an new sketch app. Grrr.

I've used this app for years, love it a lot. The interface is easy to understand, lots of basic brushes that can be customized, and there are no intrusive ads whatsoever. There is a problem with random crashing very rarely, but I have never lost artwork because of it. Thanks for the awesome app :)
