4. Go to https://www.sketchbook.com and log in using your new email address.



Update SketchBook from sketchbook.com

The latest updates are uploaded to www.sketchbook.com sooner than the Mac App Store. Apple needs to check the app before it can be published in their store.

Download your SketchBook software for these locations:


Mobile (Android/iOS)

Windows 10 (Mobile)

Saving options for SketchBook MAS vs. sketchbook.com

To see the difference, we need to setup an iCloud account. When you save files in the Mac Store version of SketchBook for Desktop, you can save the files into your iCloud Drive.
