Create beautiful sketches with realistic brushes.

Best app I can find


I LOVE this app! I've been using it for over a year now and it's been such a journey! I honestly can't find an app this simplistic with such high quality. A few things need to be addressed though.
Recently I haven't been able to make any artworks since the moment I quit the app, it deletes all the progress I've made during that drawing session. The slide to undo isn't working anymore either.
The very first folder I have is filled to the brim with old sketches that I don't want anymore. Could you make a mass select button to get rid of all these drawings? As well as an empty bin option. It's incredibly frustrating to sit in a laggy folder (thanks to too many drawings) trying to delete each sketch one by one.
Perhaps being able to make thinner lines? Or more textures with the brushes?

That's really all my problems currently. I've only rated it three stars because of the fact it's unusable right now. Otherwise I highly suggest you go and get this app! Pro is SO worth it

Love it!!


I have just purchased this app 😀 it’s fantastic. Very easy to use and extremely effective, there are no limits to creativity here! Highly recommend it!
The only thing I would really like to see added is to the recording section, it would be great if there was an option to record your art without all the tools coming up as you create, pleeeeeeeease add this to future upgrades 🤞other than that... AWESOME!! Thankyou 😀
