Review…

I’ve recently had the pleasure of reviewing an iPhone Pocket Sketchbook for myself! Please read on . . .

Packaging & Presentation

I received my iPhone Pocket Sketchbook in the mail, and I took a look at it, and my creativity 'want' to be creative came out!  I saw lots of potential opportunities to be made. 

It is a great tool for iPhone application developers, as it rules exactly the dimensions of the iPhone 3, 3G, 3GS, and 4 as well as the iTouch.

You can buy your own iPhone Pocket Sketchbook HERE.

The prices are:
(1) for $8.00
 (2) for $10.00
 (5) for $20.00

Ease of Use

The book relies on simplicity, as it is an inspiration to the right-brained society!

I really like that it is small in size, as you can carry it everywhere (either in your pocket or purse!) This is really quite convenient, because you never know when an idea is going to come through!

The iPhone Pocket Sketch Notebook not only gives you a grid like drawing space, but it also gives you an outline, so you can see exactly how your application will look in its finished state.


The inside-cover provides a useful page for your information, so you can make sure to claim it if it is lost!


Within the back cover lies an iPhone App Sales Matrix (Revenue & Profit).




I really like this, because if you happen to get out of touch with what idea you are trying to portray within the sketch book, you can look at this for a little motivation.  =]

Pros / Cons

Pros
- Functions as a simulator to what your application ideas would appear on the Apple Electronics
- Simple design lets your creativity flow
- Works on all models of the iPhone, include the iTouch
- Small size allows for mobility


Cons
- None!

Summary

I really enjoyed reviewing this book.  My husband is going to use it to design his own game!  Unfortunately, I wasn’t blessed with the ‘creativity-design’ gene, so I’m going to leave it up to him!
These books are a great price, and would be a great gift for a new developer, or perhaps somebody that has been developing applications for quite awhile now!

Total Stars 5/ 5
