Finger Painting With Inkflow

Inkflow is available free for the iPhone and iPad.

The premium version – Inkflow Plus – has a few more tools.

Inkflow is advertised as a way to make visual notes quickly, but I’ve been using it as a way to paint with my finger on my iPhone.

Here’s a painting I made. I did it from scratch, copying the figure of Madam Butterfly in a poster we have on the wall.

The working area on an iPhone is pretty small of course, but you can pinch the screen open to work within a smaller area of the painting.



  1. Hi David,
    You can finger paint and I can’t. Boo hoo 😦 Why oh why are these only available to iPhone and iPad users? Why can’t desktop users have them too? I am green with envy because as you know I love painting. And now that I got that off my chest – thanks for sharing. πŸ˜‰


    • Why are the only available for iMachines… Well, let me see… πŸ˜‰

      You got me thinking though. I see that Sketchbook Pro from Autodesk is available for desktop – use with a Wacom tablet or similar… πŸ™‚


    • Brilliant. It could be your logo. It’s great.

      I paint with my finger – don’t have a stylus. Do you? I was looking at styluses and couldn’t decide which … and then my mind wandered elsewhere, as it does.. πŸ˜‰
