Seven Must-Have Mobile Apps for Digital Media Arts Students

Are you looking for mobile apps perfect for college students in digital media arts? Find them here!

We bring you seven of our favorite apps to help you kick-start your mobile creativity.

1. Adobe Photoshop Sketch

This is a free app with a set of expressive drawing tools. You can choose from utilities that look like graphite ink pen, pencil, or marker.

2. Glitche

Glitche turns existing images into pixelated works of art you can use on your own after a few practices. You can also import in assets from Shape CC and Color CC and transfer drawings to Illustrator CC from desktop, or from PNG files to Photoshop CC. Glitche allows you to start a design whenever inspiration takes you, and then flesh it out on desktop.

3. Infinite Painter

Infinite Painter is an all-round painting app that will give access to more than 80 brushes. You can create your own new brushes and change the settings to fit your preferences. The brushes interact with the digital paper textures, so artists like you can create paintings that almost mimic the traditional equivalent.

4. NVIDIA Dabbler

This stock painting app has cool effects such as realistic oil and watercolor painting and unique features such as the ability to record sessions and share/save for future reference.

5. Paper by FiftyThree

While Paper by FiftyThree includes more features, its core is its drawing engine that doubles the feeling of working with a sketchpad or a paper notebook.

Various tools mimic pencils, ink pen, markers, ball-point pens, and more, with no funky settings to get between you and your drawings. The ink engine is glib and receptive, giving you a natural feel when sketching on your smart phone.

6. Tayasui Sketches

Tayasui Sketches is a sketch board with an array of draft tools that will let you doodle on your phone or tablet. From watercolor versions to architectural drawings, you will like its pencil or digital pen.

7. Sketchbook Express

Sketchbook Express is a free painting and drawing app that can help you do simple tasks such as sketching out ideas to more complex actions as layers and complex brushes.
