The folks at LateNiteSoft have updated their drawing app, Sketches, to version 2.0—a complete rewrite with an improved UI, new features, and enhanced support for iPhone OS 3. Sketches 2 turns your iPhone into a mini sketch pad complete with various brush shapes and clipart, which can be handy as well as entertaining—if you ever need to sketch out a simple diagram or scribble out some free-hand notes, for example.
Sketches 2 also features Maps integration, which lets you draw out directions for your friends, and recognizes what device it is running on and will adjust for performance and capabilities accordingly.
Sketches 2 is available at the iTunes Store for the launch price of $2, after which it will raise to $5 (it’s a new version, so Sketches 1 owners have to pay too). The original Sketches ( ), now considered an entry-level app, is still available for $1.
