There is a massive amount of iPad apps for artists and art lovers, it's possible to spend a day or more simply browsing through. Most of them are fairly similar so I've done the job of finding five stand out apps that each have something unique to offer.

The funky and modern art inspired activities help artists to think outside of the box and form connections between creative and abstract principles.

This ultra-realistic art app allows artists to paint, draw, colour in, and design pretty much what they want. The long list of tools are each designed to replicate the real thing, but if you're not happy with that, you can edit them yourself. With this capability it's possible to create truly personalised and unique artworks with your own settings. It supports a stylus and has pressure sensitivity, just like the real thing.
