Surprised they called it Sketch considering the popularity of the other Sketch

@scotty_bowler Yeah, agree. The app has been around on Android for 4+ years - before the other Sketch was very well known. Anyway, a rebranding is probably not a bad idea.

@markussvensson Ah, interesting - didn't realise you guys came first!

@markussvensson @scotty_bowler that Sony Sketch icon gives me nightmares. I hated seeing it auto update itself even after being disabled repeatedly with an aggressive stabbing finger of aversion.

@shoshinzen Sorry to hear about your experience. I guess you have/had an Xperia phone with the Sketch app preloaded. Glad that we finally made the app totally "uninstallable" on the latest Xperia phones.

@markussvensson I think Sketch was just one of the offenders, so nothing personal. On a 16GB tablet (Z3c 8") there was under something like 6GB available on top of the bloat. A shame, because the hardware is still unmatched. Not a lot of good Android tablets to begin with!

This is actually really awesome looking. But due to the other Sketch App's success i think rebranding to something like Sony Sketch or another name all together would help a lot.

@rdbrdd They should change it to "Paper" 😏
