Intaglio Sketchpad full featured drawing

Cool stuff for iPhone, iPod and iPad

Intaglio Sketchpad is a full featured drawing application designed for the iPhone and iPod touch, based on Intaglio, the award winning Macintosh application. With most iPhone sketching apps you paint strokes or erase pixels on the screen.
      Intaglio Sketchpad is different because it allows you to create and edit shapes and text blocks -- vector graphic elements retain their shape and attributes and can be edited at any time.
