Cool app

I love this app. Finally a true vector app for the iPad. It is well equipped with features.

Sometimes essential features are a bit to deeply hidden in the interface.
App is a bit slow due to my old hardware, and complex documents, but would be beter on a more recent device.

And the way it handles iCloud files is a mess. Need to constantly open and close files to sync them with edits made on the mac. Why can’t you just use the document view, like in pages. I believe it is a system api. That way I could manage my documents just like it works on the mac in finder. The way it ‘s now made me lose some valuable edits, because, although the files where synced to iPad, this app opened a old version of the files. The way it’s designed make you think it is closed, but instead, the old file is still loaded in memory.

For the rest I love this app.

Desktop-class toolset, clumsy to use.

Good vector drawing app with many pixel tools. True desktop toolset on a mobile device, with smart touch optimisations.

But all these palets take up space, or you end up opening and closing them a lot. Features essential to me like renaming or locking a layer are hidden too deep, take too much tabs. You can’t customise the UI to hide all panels your workflow doesn’t require.

Clumsy Cloud file management. No roundtrip edits between desktop and mobile, you need to close and reopen a file to “refresh” it after you modified it on desktop.

Insane storage usage: 5gb for a few vector drawings plus reference photos.

A lot of glitches

Hey guys, first off.. wooow... what a fantastic programm/app. I am extremely greatfull to get rid of the restraints adobe has pushed on designers/artist/hobbyists.

But i am getting a lot glitches.. delay on the brushes.. malfunction of the pen tool also with delay. When i zoom out, it doesnt place a node but takes a neighbouring node instead. It freezes a lot. So much that im used to switching between tools to go back to the tool that is needed. Drawing circles on a grid is with delay so i cant place it where needed. And so on.. that being said... thank you for pushing this through! I am a fan and will continue the use of it.
