Customer Reviews

As a longtime user...

I remember back when I downloaded this app in 2012 and all the fun I had with it. I liked its simplicity and the tools' amazing texture, and I would spend hours on it just doodling away. I'm not a professional, and I'd much rather use traditional mediums. However, year after year, I keep coming back to this app, and I've had no problem with adjusting to new features after a long time without using it.

So, I guess what I'm getting at is that I thought it was time to write out a short and sweet summary of my experience with this amazing drawing application since it'll be four years now in December. This one of my top go-to's if I'm ever in the need to sketch something out or write an idea down. I hope one day I can find the motivation to draw something spectacular in it, especially since it has so many fantastic features now!

Thank you FiftyThree and everyone involved in the making of this app for creating something so amazing and versatile, you'll always have a special place in my heart! :)

Love the app

I have been using the app for a few years now and it really started to shine on the iPad Pro once Apple Pencil was integrated. I am loving it now and my goto for drawing everyday. One suggestion that I would present for your kind consideration is to have the "smudge" feature available as a tool. Currently it works by enabling touch to work as the smudge tool, but occasionally I accidently smudge the canvas when palm rejection wobbles a bit. If this is provided as a tool, then an artist can disable touch totally and then use the tool whenever smudge is needed. Thank you for this amazing tool!

Fantastic Application

This is a fantastic application. While its image annotation and text note taking tools are notable, it's drawing capabilities are truly outstanding. I'm no artist but with this application I'm able to take sketch notes and make illustrations that are significantly superior to what I can produce on paper. The auto-shapes enable professional looking drawings that wonderfully balance artful and precision.

The only feature I can think of to add to this app to make it perfect would be the ability to add points to lines to create smooth curves.
