A few problems
This is a great app! It has many tools for you to use. Though, I think the layer thing, which means you have to pay to get layers, is very annoying. When I draw, I use at least three layers. And I cannot only use two, I need at least three layers since I use them for outlining, coloring, and shading. If I buy it, it comes with other stuff, but I only wanted the layers. So could you make it so that you could buy the layers separately? If so, that would be great.
Another thing I have a problem with, is that the undo and redo, is very annoying. Whenever I'm trying to zoom in or out, it either undoes or redoes. Though, sometimes it's helpful. But most of the time, it just gets in my way of drawing.
Those are the two things I have a problem with, overall, this is a great app to draw with, if you ignore its flaws. I recommend you download it, or at least try it out.
Almost a 5
I love this app it’s the most simple and basic drawing and sketching app but it has so much to offer! The only thing I wish they had is within a layer we can add an image from our library or from the web, without needed the pro version to have that layer. To me this is the best thing a drawing app can offer so this is why it was almost a 5 star rating. I also wish we could have the most basic thing such as the ruler tool for free. It’s a necessity and not everyone can pay for it. There is definitely room for improvement but other than those two things, great app <3
Easy to learn interactions, relaxing flow on iPad
Tried a few other sketching apps as I consider changing workflow to an app that might replace paper and pen sketching. Have found using a finger for sketching surprisingly relaxing, and a stylus for doing work provides control that is needed. Changing colors ( lower right) and pen types (far left) is intuitive and does draw attention away from main task of sketching with multiple menus or clicks.
