Five alternatives to Procreate to draw on your Android tablet

26 mayo, 2021

Leaving aside their other facets (especially, as tools to work or to consume audiovisual content), tablets are very practical when drawing. In the case of the iPad, there is a very famous application that serves this purpose, Procreate, but unfortunately, it is not available on Google Play.

However, for Android tablets, too it is possible to find a multitude of alternatives that will allow you to create drawings whether you are a designer or a professional illustrator, or if you simply want to take your first steps as an artist.

Here we propose five examples that meet two premises: they have a rating higher than 4 out of 5 and have more than 10 million downloads, which is why other popular apps such as Adobe Illustrator Draw, ArtFlow or Adobe Photoshop Sketch, with fewer downloads but still valid, have been left out.
