Ratings and Reviews
The new update is ok, but..
I like the new update, since you can edit the ruler, but I think that's all we needed.. the colour bar in the bottom corner didn't need to be bigger, because it covers up more of the screen, especially when you go to change the colour, also, the bars on the right where you change the opacity and size, i don't know why that changed, but I preferred it when you could tap then it would go there, and now that has a cover behind it so that also covers more of the screen.
The app it's self didn't need to change because it's more annoying, thought the idea that you can change the direction of the ruler was the only useful thing.
Apart from that the app is great, best drawing app there is apart from that update. Don't let what iv said think it's bad because it's really not, the tools have their own characteristics and you can add as many layers as you want.

Thanks a lot for taking the time to write this review.
It is always nice to have feedback and we'll take that into account.

I am in love with your app, there is no other way of putting it. But I feel there is room for slight improvement. First off I think the huge “Saved” and “Undo” notices in the middle of the screen are totally unnecessary, they should be small and discrete, in a corner.
Next, I am sure there is a more practical way of making the options/menues disappear when you touch the pen to the display, when I want to where the side bar is it can be quite difficult. I think it would be better to have a slide gesture to bring up options and side bars, or just have a little icon which when tapped would expand the sidebar.
These would all be easily changed and would make this app one of the best sellers of all time. This app is the Evernote of drawing. Amazing.
I have, also, experienced a bug when adding an image into a project. When using certain tools, when I begin drawing, the image that I pre-added partially vanishes and flickers. I really hope that this bug is addressed, as well as some of the other potential “make or break” improvements.
Please, make your already happy users muuuuuch happier. You have so much potential, it’s crazy!
Yours sincerely, a (almost) 100% satisfied customer.
P.s. I have paid for the full version of the app, which is absolutely phenomenal.
I’ve been using this app for well over a year and love it so far (I have the full version which is well worth the money). However, I’ve noticed something which appears to be a result of the new update as it didn’t happen before that.
If my pen tool is lower than about 1 on the ‘scale’ slider (which it is on default size) the fill tool doesn’t recognise my drawn lines and instead fills the whole screen. I use the pen tool much more than the others and dislike having to use thick outlines in my art just because the fill tolerance is unreasonably low. Prior to the update, the fill tool worked just fine on shapes drawn with thinner lines so I feel that this must be a new error.
Please fix this if possible- I think either having a fill tolerance slider (other drawing apps have such a thing) or reverting the fill tool to how it was before would be the best solution.
