    I'm looking for suggestions for apps that take full advantage of the Scribe pen, specifically drawing apps. I've downloaded Quill and Sketchbook Pro but neither use the eraser function and it looks like only Quill takes advantage of the pressure sensitivity.

    I know this should probably be in the apps section but who is going to see it there and this is specifically related to the Scribe funtionality.

    If anyone tries Sketch Pad or Scribble Companion, they are not what you might think. They are not drawing programs. Basically, they are filling the screen with an image of the paper. Then you take a screenshot and start drawing on that using the built in View/Flyer tools. When you save it, it goes to your scribbles folder in the gallery. Your image will have the status bar on there so better to take the screenshot in portrait mode so it takes up less space. I'm basically using it so I can get graph paper to draw on.

    Both of these apps need to update their market pages to instruct people with Honeycomb what's going on as it just seems like they don't do anything.

    I too am wondering about this. I like how Quill's fountain pen brush is pressure sensitive, and wondering if any other apps are taking advantage of this ability of the hardware.

    These apps were nice in GB because they gave you some options as far as background choice for your screenshot to scribble on. They still serve the same purpose, but as you said not necessarily "what you might think".

    I started a similar thread in the Flyer forum (App Scribe/Pen functionality in HC.) hoping to get a definitive list of all apps that support the Scribe hardware beyond what the OS does.
    Covering both forums may give us a better chance of finding out what works.

    Autodesk sketchbook pro uses pressure sensitivity... It is a full drawing app as well... Only thing it doesn't use is the eraser function.

    Which pens in the app use the pressure sensitivity? I've got the pro version and didn't see anything different the harder I pressed.

    I guess I don't really notice any pen pressure either in sketchbook. Canvas Lite tries to make use of pressure. Does any one know what level of pressure sensitivity the HTC scribe/stylus has?

    That's what I have. Guess it doesn't work for me or I'm not doing it right.

    For Sketchbook Pro you should be able to go into Preferences and check a box to enable pressure sensitivity. I was able to do this on my lenovo tablet.

    That worked. Of course you have to figure out where the preferences are. Get the toolbars to appear and then hit the "i" icon.

    I downloaded Writepad and have found it useful when taking notes with my Scribe.

    Here's a drawing app if you use Catch Notes. It's an add on and it looks like you have to run it separately from Catch to create a drawing note.
