It isn't easy to condense the many moments and events that happened over the last year. With that said, however, here is a quick TOP 10 RETROSPECTIVE LIST for SketchBook in 2011, in semi-chronologic order...
The Mac App Store Launch
Announced in October 2010, there were 90 days for us to prepare and submit SketchBook for review. On January 6, Apple launched the Mac App Store (OS X 10.6.6) with more than 1000 available applications, including SketchBook Pro and SketchBook Express. To date, we've been able to reach more 'desktop' users through the Mac App Store than ever before!
O Magazine, Let's Get Creative
January 11, teaming up with Oprah's O Magazine to deliver a free sketching app (SketchBook O) released in conjunction with their “Creativity” issue was our first big collaboration. Not only was it the foundation for today's SketchBook Express, it also made subsequent team-ups and co-branded versions much easier for us thanks to that experience, such as The Copic Edition which we released in July collaborating with Too Corporation, makers of Copic Markers.
