This app requires heavy lifting that is even too much for the iPad Pro Gen1

Ever wonder why their is no vector app on a professional level on the iPad Pro that can replace adobe illustrator? Or ever wonder why Adobe hasn’t stepped in yet with a serious drawing app? Remember when the iPad Pro first came out and people were up in arms about whether it was worthy of the title? Well, this app tells you a lot about why. As awesome as it is, the iPad Pro just can’t handle the heavy lifting this app demands. Sure it is useable but it can be laggy, it can be slow, and it can crash. For now I’m uninstalling it, I’ll revisit it later when I have a new iPad Pro. I give these developers credit for taking on such a huge task to create this app especially since it is only a few years away from Apple creating a real iPad Pro that can handle an adobe port and that is when adobe steps in to scoop up all the users from other apps, unfortunately leaving hard working developers at a loss of revenue


I already bought this app...

I bought this app when it was new so a long time ago. I’m not exactly sure when. But i purchased it spending money on it because it seemed worth it. I have used the app for years now for thumbnails and such but recently there was an update that made a few of the options “pro options” that you hav stock pay monthly/annually for and I’m not amused. I already purchased the freaking app. It’s ridiculous that after purchasing it you’d have to further purchase it to have the options you once had before the update. I wrote two tickets about this and all i got in response was basically “it’s what comes with the new update. We need to make money” uhh yeah i don’t care I ALREADY PURCHASED THE APP YEARS AGO. you’re gonna lose a loyal user over this and hopefully unless this gets resolved, This review deters other customers.

Hi Bella - thank you for taking the time to leave a review. In order to be able to afford the resources for the further development of the app, we did indeed switch to a subscription model. This allowed us now to be hard at work at our ambitious roadmap!

We completely understand your frustration. Could you please email me directly? I can help you out so that you can keep using all of the features that were available to you before as a PRO user :) (make sure to type .co and not .com!)



Used to love this app. However, while in the middle of a big project - the app no longer open for me. I just recently updated to iOS 11 because it said it was compatible, but now I can’t get the app to open - so I’m stuck having to start over. Very disappointed considering I’m paying for an annual subscription and was only able to use it for 3 months. And even then, the app would crash a lot in the middle of projects. Had to switch over to photoshop to try to continue with my big project due soon. Though, I’d much rather use this app. Or I would have at least used to.

Oh, and I tried emailing support, but I got a message saying that there was an error trying to send my message. To try again. So I can’t even contact anyone about these issues.
