Being back mix:D No more socializing for the artists?

I had many links set up to drawings that are now saying they are missing links when visited -can someone explain this to me? So to be clear the socializing has been done away with? Is that what is going on? Sheesh. I paid for the app when it had it - seems kind of bore to take it away don't you think?
I will give 4 stars because the app is excellent though tedious - a good medium- seems your balance could use a socializing aspect maybe that will come in the fall 4.0 update too?
Hope it's working out. Maybe make social more appealing like with circle collaborative views - I really enjoyed working with random and excellent artists on just what was of interest. Unfortunate loss I must say.

Buy it at full price today, so we can give it away for free tomorrow!!!!

I am all for showing a thank you, but this is a little disingenuous. FiftyThree, who exactly are you thanking with this gesture? The App golden era is done. The incredible (moral?) flexibility developers are claiming in jumping between payment models once they've taken your money is just insane, scary and greedy. Apple, are you taking note? Cause it seems you are fine acting as brokering agent in all this. Today, I start wandering around the store buying nothing and waiting for all I want to become free. BTW, I bought all the in-app purchases as a sign of support after having used the app for quite some time. I did not really need them...shame on you FiftyThree. Apple, if you care - I'd recommend a relook at developers jumping between purchase models. Till there is a measure of sanity, I'm not buying anything else.

Excellent IPad drawing App

I'm not one to write reviews but I'm afraid not to in case there's ever a risk this might go away. Definitely buy this app! I started using it about a year ago to sketch out ideas and over time have become so fluent that it allows me to work out ideas quickly and matches perfectly now to my drawing style. I'm starting to research fine art ink jet printing now so I can get some of these drawings on paper. Works fantastic with Apple Pencil. I can work for hours at a stretch on this and the fact that I can draw anywhere I go now has added gobs more hours to my studio time.
