This app deserves 5 stars other than a serious flaw...

Steve huge

This app is without question the best art app on the iPad, an almost identical port of the desktop version... but... it does have one serious flaw, which in fact makes for two.

It’s File sharing system is unacceptable. It has no way to transfer work files back and forth via cloud services. At present you have to connect to iTunes if you wish to transfer the clip paint comic files to the app, though you can transfer the files off of the app via iCloud.

For an app they want you to eventually pay £7 a month for this is unacceptable. If this flaw is fixed in the next 6 months I will, reluctantly, pay the £7 a month... although I also feel this is a rather steep price to pay having already bought the desktop version.

While this is, without question, the best professional level art app on the iPad (procreate is a joke comparatively, although MediBang comes close) at £7, a single months subscription is almost the same price as any other apps one off purchase.

Still, great app, with those serious flaws.

Needs a one time payment


This app is almost identical to the desktop version as it is a part of my everyday app usage but, i will not pay to simply export a photo. A good idea would to be able to link it to your current clip studio account. If you already paid for clip studio paint pro or ex on desktop version, you should be allowed to get the app version free since i already spent £40 on the desktop version.

Blown away, but a little put off by the subscription.


I use the desktop version and am very familiar with it, having it on an iPad feels unreal, I have yet to really test the app but my first impressions of it so far is phenomenal. However, because I already own the desktop version, the idea of having to pay for this app monthly is a disappointment, £7 is quite a steep price to pay monthly. With that said, I would rather pay a higher price for a one off.
