Application Sketches 2

Platforms iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch

Price US$4.99 

If you think that sketch and drawing apps are only for graphic designers, think again.

Say you want to share your location with a friend. Or maybe you're looking to reference a catalogued item to one of your suppliers. Sure, you could take a picture, send it to him, and explain the rest over the phone. But if you're looking to save yourself some time, you might want to use this handy application instead.

Stocked with a plethora of drawings, shapes, and clipart features, Sketches 2 is the ultimate tool for annotating images of all kinds. These include maps, pre-set backgrounds, photos from your library, as well as photos taken from inside the app itself.

The editing tools are lined up along a menu bar at the bottom of your screen. From there you'll be able to do everything from select the size of your paintbrush to place geometric shapes and adding text boxes.

In addition to the geometric structures, the shapes menu also houses an amusing collection of clipart images, such as funny moustaches and speech bubbles, making the app as much of a social toy as a business tool. Once you're ready to share your masterpiece, simply access the "send-to" menu, from where you'll be able to export it via e-mail or Twitter, or upload it to your photo library.
