15 Best Apps For the Apple Pencil

Popular Posts

The Apple Pencil turns the iPad into a tablet with touchscreen capabilities. It can also be used as a precise pointing device. You’ll see your iPad Pro or iPad Pro grow when you add an Apple Pencil.

Editing photos, taking notes in class and drawing are now easier, more intuitive and faster. Our list of top Apple Pencil apps is available for iPad Pro and iPad Pro.

1. Apple Notes

Start a new note and then use the Apple Pencil to start writing. You can write, draw, or do anything else you like. To open the toolbar, tap on the Pencil icon. You can choose any color and switch between a marker tip or pen from this toolbar.

To create a section, tap on the lasso icon. Simply draw a section of the note with it. You’ll then be able to pick it up and move around.

Apple Notes is a great note-taking app for iPad. It integrates with iOS/iPadOS. Tap the Lock screen using your Apple Pencil to instantly open the Notes App with a blank note, or the last note that you accessed (you can customize this setting in the app’s settings).

2. Notability

Notability was created for students as a multi-purpose note-taking app. You can open a note with either your Apple Pencil (or the keyboard) and choose to write or type. It is easy to switch between these options.

You can also record the audio in the background. Notability is the ideal tool to take lecture notes. The infinite scrolling feature allows you to change the background to display graph paper, and to write as much or as little as you want. Notability also marks page break points, making it easy to export your notes as PDFs and print them later.

3. Adobe Photoshop

The iPad is becoming more powerful and desktop-class apps, such as Adobe Photoshop, are moving to the tablet. Adobe created the app to make the most of the iPad’s touch screen. It also supports the Apple Pencil.

The app allows you to create complete PSDs with layers, and you can use the same features as the desktop version like spot healing or blending. Other familiar tools include the Layer stack, Toolbar and Toolbar. The app’s UI uses context-aware technology to help you work more efficiently. It will only display the tools you need.

The app is available for a free 30-day trial. The app is free to anyone who has a current Adobe Photoshop monthly subscription.

4. AstroPad Standard

AstroPad Standard allows you to bring both an iPad and a Mac. If you require a specific app to run simultaneously on your Mac, connect your iPad via WiFi or plug in with a USB cable. Mirror any Mac app from the iPad screen. You can also use the Apple Pencil across all apps and the system, in addition to full touch support and gestures. This opens up many options for bringing stylus support to the Mac, including full pressure sensitivity.

You can also draw directly in any creative software, such as the Adobe Creative Suite, Pixelmator and many others. The Apple Pencil can be used for annotations, whiteboarding and other tasks. The app can run at 60 FPS even while connected to Wi-Fi. For an even better user experience, the app features accurate palm rejection.

5. Linea Sketch

Linea Sketch is somewhere in between a basic doodling app, and more advanced drawing tools such as Procreate. You can doodling as easy or complex as you like, with powerful user tools such unlimited layers, transform tools and grids.

Linea is a drawing app that uses a canvas-based approach, just like every other. Linea is not like Notability. You won’t find endless scrolling pages here. You can however create multiple canvases and arrange them into projects.

Grid tool provides backgrounds for drawing, note-taking and interface design. Linea Sketch’s simplicity is its greatest strength. You can ignore the features you don’t use and have the tools arranged in two panels either side of your screen.

This is a double-edged knife, however, because many of Linea’s most interesting features are hidden behind buttons. After you have become comfortable with the app, it is a good idea to create a blank page so you can try out all the tools at least once.

6. GoodNotes 5

GoodNotes 5 is a modernized version of the original iPad app for taking notes. The original app was simple in its concept: it recreated a physical writing environment for the iPad. You could have the same experience on your iPad as if you used to write on a yellow legal paper.

However, this meant that GoodNotes had limited functionality. It didn’t offer the vertical scrolling that Notes and Notability have. Instead, you had flip pages each time.

These annoyances are solved by GoodNotes 5. Continuous vertical scrolling makes note taking much more simple. This version adds many new features that make GoodNotes a powerful note-taking app. It is now possible to nest as many folders you like and easily organize them.

7. LiquidText

LiquidText elevates the standard note-taking app. This app brings the paper experience to iPad. You can use an Apple Pencil to organize and gather information from many sources on the tablet. A single tap can reveal the context of the information. You can bring together search results and highlights to see the whole picture. After you have organized your notes and excerpts in the way that you like, you can export the results to a PDF or other standard formats for sharing with others.

The free version has limited functionality. You can purchase multiple versions for one device, or you can use the cloud-based version across multiple devices.
