Sketch Pal, a new drawing app from Microsoft Garage is now available on the Windows 10 Microsoft Store. The new Garage project was born during a Hackhaton last year, and it aims to provide modern inking features for Surface Pen users.

Powered by Windows Ink and designed for the Surface Pen, Sketch Pal offers unique features that optimize a digital sketching and drawing experience while leveraging the strengths of the Surface hardware, Microsoft explained on the Garage blog. “The project provides a modern inking experience, combining classic features like layers and custom brushes with new tools like coloring assist, stroke cleanup tools, and a reference mode.”

Sketch Pal not only combines classic and modern inking features, but it also supports cross-device connection for using a second device as a remote palette. The app is free to download from the Microsoft Store, and you can get it from the link below.
