If you’ve been using a Galaxy Note device for some time, one of your “secret weapons” is a drawing app called Penup. It’s actually available for any Android device, but mostly it has a strong community among Note users with its built-in stylus and all. You now get a fresh version of the app as its UI takes on a new shine and you also get multi-layer support, which artists would love. The update does not bring anything important, but the new things are always brilliant.
Once you have updated the application, you will see a new interface for the bottom bar according to Android Police. The one that looks like one paper on top of another is the new layer tool. You can also play around with the layers, such as rearranging, locking and unlocking them, and hiding and showing them when needed. Artists who are serious about their drawings in the Penup app will have fun with this new layer holder.
The main menu of the Penup app also has a new dedicated coloring tab. As the name implies, you’ll be able to access some adult coloring book pages for when you’re feeling stressed out and just want to have a little time for zen coloring. Many people find it relaxing, of course, so there is a full section in the app for this. The coloring section has tabs for the newest, most popular, and books where you have a collection of things like cats and dogs, architecture, mandalas, travel, people, etc.
Penup is quite popular not only as a drawing app, but also as a community. You will be able to see some great user artwork in the home feed and you can follow specific users if you like their art. Think of it as Deviant Art but under the Samsung banner so it’s not that deviant. There is even a section for Live Drawing for those who want to learn how to draw while following videos of users who want to share their secrets.
If you haven’t tried it yet, you can download Penup for free from the Google Play Store and Galaxy App Store. Even if you don’t have a stylus, you can still use the app, but of course it’s better to use it with a Samsung Galaxy Note.
