Sketchbook Pro is Now Free
In the past, Sketchbook came in two versions, a limited featured free version and the full featured Sketchbook Pro version, which was available with a yearly subscription. However a few months ago, on April 30, Autodesk announced that they are dropping their limited featured free version and replacing it with Sketchbook Pro, which is now free for desktop, mobile and tablets.
What does this mean? Well, you now have all the features that were available in the Pro version in the free version. Just go to the website, open a free account and download Sketchbook.
But what if you have a Sketchbook Pro subscription? Well, you won't get a refund. Just download the latest Sketchbook update, open Sketchbook and your subscription will not auto-renew.
Autodesk states that they will continue to develop Sketchbook for designers and animators. And, they still offer the Enterprise License for business.
