Really Purposeful


This app does exactly what it says it does and what I needed it to do, which was to transfer my drawn sketches into Photoshop and being able to efficiently and quickly clean it up, get all my necessary lines and shapes clear, erase anything I didn't want, name them, and automatically load to Photoshop library for me to place. It's been fantastic and has saved me a lot of work and time. Every page was done three weeks ago and am in my next phase of production. Looks like I will be meeting my goals/timeframe. Only thing is this efficiency can only be done with Photoshop CC and not older versions of Photoshop, which is what I have. So it forced me to subscribe to the Adobe photographer package, which is $9.99 a month. But it's been worth it for me. Thanks for coming up with this app. I didn't have crash problems like the other reviewers. Fantastic and very efficient and effective app--oh, you smart people over at Adobe! Thank you!

Great! Except for one annoying problem...


This is an awesome and extremely handy app however I have been experiencing the same issue for something like the past 3 months. The app will crash completely 9 times out of 10, very shortly after selecting a picture already in my camera roll to convert into a shape. I send the crash report just about every time but I'm not sure whether or not that does any good. I've also tried deleting the app and reinstalling it.

I always update the app and I'm currently using it with my iPhone X but I'm pretty sure the same thing happened when I had my iPhone 7 plus. In case anyone from Adobe reads this, the app does not crash when using camera within the app to convert to a shape and it does not crash at all when creating color palletes using either the camera or an existing photo -- only when trying to make a shape from existing photo.

Other than that, it's fantastic!

HI BrentonGP. I'm sorry for taking so long to respond to this. Please contact me through the in-app feedback (tap the Gear icon in the upper left corner then Send Feedback), I think I may know what's going on but it requires more space to troubleshoot than I have here. _Sue.

Wish I️ Could Actually Use The App


Wish I Could Actually Use The App - because it’s a really great one, when it’s not crashing or not letting me access images or files. It’s a great day when it’s running smoothly but I find myself cursing this and all the adobe apps more often then not. The at&t store told me the issue is that it’s not compatible with the new Apple update but that’s a cop out excuse because I’ve always had these issues, it’s just now 50% more problematic since the latest update😢😢 All things said, when the app is actually working- it’s my most useful and favorite design tool!
