Good but...

I like it but on m iPad 12.9 it creates these weird squares randomly over the text. I have to close the file and reopen to clear them. Sometimes that doesn’t work. I’ve contacted them twice about it, sending them screenshots. They responded once, but through every update the problem remains.


Crashes constantly!

I can’t even open a project without the app completely crashing. Disappointed I spent money on this app.
The concept is great but they need to fine tune the issues and glitches.


They don’t respond to customer questions
