the actual best, no joke


I’ve tried so many different drawing/art apps that are free, and none of them come close to this. The brushes, the design, everything is just so well done and easy to work with. This app actually boosts my motivation to work on art and I love it so much. The standard brushes without premium are amazing; and the premium adds those brushes for extra amazingness. I love the way that you can watch an ad to receive all the brushes for 24 hours. This is incredibly useful to an extremely broke person, aka me. I don’t really know what else to say because words cannot express how much I love this app 💞

Thank you for reviewing! We want to improve ibisPaint more! Please tell our app to your friends!

Honestly just as good as my paid desktop software


Ibis Paint is a wonderful mobile drawing app and since the second I discovered it, I've loved it. It's constantly updating and always bringing out better and better features each time. I've yet to have many problems at all with it really. My only wish is that there was a way to make an Ibis account so you can log in on different devices and continue the same work - I once lost everything I was working on because my phone needed repairing, and all signing in does it let me upload new things.

Great but....


So i find this app amazing, I use it almost every day! From little sketches to large artworks! Truely amazing and easier to navigate than the other art apps i've downloaded!

However i recently came into a problem that has been happening since the latest update. The option to watch ads to unlock brushes have not been working. The ads either open then close immediately or play but don't unlock the brushes. This has hindered me quite a bit since i rely on most of those brushes but i can still work with the few i do have access to.

But other than that, an amazing app! Would definitely recommend!
