Customer Reviews

Honestly my favorite but,

Okay so I have to say that I absolutely love this application. I use it for all of my commissions, and everybody seems to be happy with the results. But I recently got a new computer, set it up, and restored my purchases and what not. I began working on a piece for a friend, and was about to start coloring when the app crashed. Now I get it, this is partially on me because I had forgotten to save every now and then, but 3 hours of work, just gone. I am still extremely frustrated, because I had put a lot of work into the piece that I lost, and I just dont know if I have the motivation to start it again. Worst experience I’ve ever had with this app, but I’ll still continue to use it because I have paid for it, and have done some remarkable pieces in the past. Sorry for the partially bad review, but it’s stilla wonderful app.

I have a question! :D

Hello! I LOVE Sketches so much! I do all of my commissions on it. However, I wanted to get it on the Mac (I have bought the Pro Version on my iPad), but I don’t know how to restore my purchases. Do I have to pay AGAIN to get the Pro Version, or is there a way I can get the Pro Version from another device from here (iCloud)? Thank you!! :D
