One of the best free drawing apps! But needs a fill tool

Adobe Photoshop Sketch offers a wide variety of tools to use in drawing, which all feel very natural and make digital drawing extremely comforting and efficient. Alongside Draw, I have been using only THIS app in drawing digitally for over a year! That should tell you how great it is.

However, I have one MAJOR gripe with this app. It is almost perfect for me, you can change settings of different brushes, you can add layers, you can use shapes; I could go on and on. But the ONE thing that this app needs: a fill option.

I really wish Adobe would implement a fill feature which would save a lot of hassle in coloring. Adobe Draw has this feature, and is very good app too, but it just doesn’t feel as natural as Sketch.

TL;DR: Greatest free drawing app on iOS in my opinion, feels natural, but NEEDS a fill feature. Please fix this Adobe!

Good generally, but could be better

I love the way it deal with layers, lines, and opacity management. This app is so great that could fit every one’s expectations of sketching ideas, like the way Photoshop CC does. However, a major problem appears to work in big projects - I couldn’t copy a layer of one project into another project. It’s very important to be able to copy those for keeping the work’s quality and efficiency. I guess Adobe could do that on this app but they just didn’t think of. I hope they could fix it and the app’s gonna be awesome.
