What's New in Version 1.8.2
What is this? An update to Deco Sketch after 4 years of neglect?! That's right!!! Huge thanks to JP LaBorde who's the motivating force and the developer helping me to revitalize Deco Sketch. We WILL be working on more updates.
Here's whats new:
- Removed canvas size selection panel and set canvas to 3000 x 4000.
- Fixed save bug!!!
- Additional undo's depending on your device
- New logo and icon
JP's got some great ideas on how to improve Undo's. We'll be working on that next. Stay tuned...
Absolutely fantastic app!
I’ve had this app since it first came out. It was very good. But now that it’s been updated it’s absolutely beyond fabulous. It has brushes in various geometric shapes. You can use them as is or you can open the brush engine and set up the brushes as you wish. Spacing, opacity, on and on. Amazing and quite sophisticated.
The app was made by one of the people from Pixite. They make only quality apps and that quality shows here, as well as the brilliant creativity.
Bravo! Well worth the money! Hours of creative fun here!
Paint with geometric forms
So happy to see an update! And promise of more to come! I feared Deco Sketch would be phased out by the next iOS upgrade. Although some of the brushes can be found in similar form in other apps, many are unique to DS, and none bring to the table anything like its geometric variety and versatility. Paint from scratch or add effects to an existing image. Brilliant!
My only quibble is I'm puzzled by why "redo" sits above "undo," in reverse of the standard alignment. For awhile I thought "undo" didn't work.
Love the app.
One issue. Whatever yu you all did the I CV obs to choose between brushes etc are now as small as a pin head. Maybe for iPad they are bigger but on a 7splus they are way too small in my opinion.
