MORE STORAGE (Optional in-app purchase)
If you need more Creative Cloud file storage, you have the option of purchasing an additional 20GB for $1.99 (US dollars) a month. The recurring payment is automatically charged to your iTunes account. To stop service, simply go to your account Settings and turn off auto-renew at least 24-hours before the end of your billing period.

WHAT’S NEW IN SKETCH 4.7
Choose how double-tap works with your Apple Pencil (2nd Generation)
We’ve added a preference option to control double-tap on the latest iPad Pro with the new Apple Pencil. We think you’ll love adding this time-saving feature to your painting experience, and they even work in full-screen drawing mode. Choose from one of these options under your iPad’s settings for Adobe Sketch:
• Switch between brush and eraser - If you find yourself using these two tools a lot, this option lets you work faster.
• Switch between current and last used brush - this allows you to use two brushes at once and switch quickly between them.
• Activate the color picker - If you want a quicker way to pick a color from the canvas, select this option. You can use this in full-screen mode, too!
• Zoom in or out - Zooming in and out of the canvas has never been easier! With this option, double- tap to view the full artwork, and double-tap again to zoom in and work on a detailed region of your painting.
• None - Don’t want to use this feature? That’s cool. Use this to turn the double-tap option off.
Send to Printer:
Now you can send your work directly to the printer from within the app. Simply tap on the share icon, select SHARE -> Image. You’ll be prompted on where to share. Be sure to select Print. Happy printing!
Ratings and Reviews
Solid basic app
I enjoy drawing in this app. I would like to see better brush management in the app itself. I have imported a bunch of brushes but there's no way to delete or organize them once they've been imported. Some brush files are so big that they won't work but I can't delete them, so they just take up space. Generally speaking, the project management is also annoying. This seems like a "lite" version of an app where you have to have a Mac & adobe cc for full use, it would be cool to see it become more usable, even in a paid/subscription version.
Developer Response ,
Hi Hannah.Isabel. Although it's not possible to delete imported brushes in the app, it is possible to delete them. I can give you instructions for doing that; contact us through the in-app feedback. _Sue G.

Great app but...
...please add the ability to rotate the canvas! It's annoying rotated the entire iPad to get a better approach to a stroke.
