Kay Quin ,

SO frustrated!!

Have unsubscribed for the following reasons:

1) There is no automatic backup and restore feature. Just lost 4+ hours of work I was trying to finish for a person who is on their deathbed because this program crashed. THANKS SO MUCH CLIP STUDIO.

2) If for some reason you’re not signed into the app store, the software doesn’t work properly?!

3) Somewhat buggy. It stalls and crashes.

4) Has a stupid subscription pricing model.

5) File management is a mess.

Until you get rid of the subscription plan so that this software WORKS even if you’re signed out of apple ID, I will not resubscribe. You can charge $300 for EX and I’ll pay for it just so long as I don’t have to deal with the annoying app store subscription pop-ups and all the log-in crap.

Until then, I’ll use Astropad.

Prices are insulting.

If you plan to use this app for more than two years, you’re being robbed. Buy the PC version for 50 bucks, or rent the app for two years for the same price.

Disappointed long time CSP customer

Backstory: I’m a full time artist who uses CSP on the pc/Mac and I have been using the program for a few years now. You can imagine my excitement When CSP announced their new app. I have been using Procreate up until now. I bought my iPad last year, the storage is 1/4 full. I was forced to update my iPad cause I know Apple’s company functions heavily due to planned obsolescence and cycling out their products with all the updates.

Issue #1: The payment, paying that much monthly makes me uncomfortable. It would be much better to just make one bulk payment.

Issue #2: Is the fact that it takes 4 minutes for the app to open, I am stuck at the opening screen waiting and I’m afraid of closing it down because of this.

Issue #3: When I finally get the app open it either crashes or I can’t touch any of the buttons or anything. I once was able to rotate the page but it was very jittery.

I would suggest that until CSP fixes these issues please avoid updating your tablet. Get Procreate instead which is run by a small company of people who really seem to care about the customer, it’s a one time purchase as well. I hope this gets fixed ASAP but either way the disappointment lingers.
