Digital artists will be happy to hear that Wacom's Bamboo Paper app has found its way onto Android. On the down-side, Samsung has managed to snag an exclusive deal to lock it to the Galaxy Note, Galaxy Note 2, and Galaxy S3 for the time being.
The free app is fairly basic, but runs very smoothly. You can pick a highlighter or pen stroke with 12 colors each (though there's no thickness adjustment). There are options to change the guides on the "paper" to four different styles. The app plugs into the native share menu, so you can get your sketches out to Evernote, Gmail, or whereever else you need them. The iOS version allows users to import pictures stored locally on the device, but no such luck in the Android app just yet. The iOS app also has a premium in-app upgrade that includes cloud storage, but it doesn't seem like that version is available on Android.
Any artists in the house that have been using Android tablets for their work? Which stylus have you been using? Are the Bamboo ones any good, or is there another brand you prefer? What about apps?
