Wonderful..

As an artist I love Brushes Redux. It's the most accessible well designed painting/drawing app there is. I've tried them all. Others have either woeful brushes, are too complicated and time consuming to work with or they keep adding unnecessary 'features'.
The only set back for me with Brushes is the pixelation or heavy zig-zagging on the square brush setting when you want to make tight curves or circular marks. I've tried all sorts of brush combinations to fix this, but to no avail. I also wish there was some sort of support to answer these types of problems.
Overall though it's the best and most fun though.
If David Hockney uses this then it must be good!

No longer supports Dropbox

A wonderful app I say, I use it for absolutely every drawing need, all features work nicely, my biggest issues though are the limit on layers is only 10, I need way more layers sadly. My biggest problem is that I always used to transfer my drawings to other devices to continue drawing with Dropbox, but Dropbox has retired it's old platform and this app hasn't acknowledged that, so Dropbox no longer supports it and I can't transfer files anymore.

Dropbox integration problem

App work well. Dropbox/Apps/Brushes Redux link gets lost if one swipes to a higher directory within Brushes Redux and you can’t navigate back to the shared directory. So you can’t see it from BR. I tried reinstall. It’s stuck. Seems like it’s easy to fix in the next release of BR. SO can’t export or import from Dropbox. Do you have a solution planned? Import from airdrop also seems to be a problem
