Customer Reviews

It’s alright...

It’s okay, but it could definitely be better. I’m more of a fancier artist, but not fancy enough to get an app that requires a subscription fee. The app that I had previously used was perfect! But then, it stopped working, so I had to get rid of it, then it left the American App Store, so I came to this. I got used to the nicer features of that app, like layers, and I was pretty devastated when I lost it. I know this is for a younger age range, and 6-year-olds likely won’t use layer, but it would be a nice addition. At least 3 layers, that have a merge option. I know this is definitely a lot more work for you, but it may make you a bit more money. Maybe, spend less time on making the tools look realistic, and put your efforts elsewhere.

BEST EVER!!!!!!!!!!!

A long time ago when I was super little, I had this SUPER old iPad that I had this game on and this app was everything to me. I had multiple years of drawings saved on it, and one day my little sister got mad at me and deleted the app.... It deleted all my work and I cried for hours😂😁😖😬😭 What I am trying to say is that this app is amazing DEFINETLY DOWNLOAD!!!!!!
I am super sad that you can not download on an iPhone 😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭PLEASE MAKE A IPHONE VERSION!!!!!!!!!!! THANK YOU!!

Nice art app for free

This is a very nice art app. It’s very basic and could use a color mating feature but it has a lot of options and possibilities
