Essential to the serious artist. You need it.

I should have posted before now. If I had posted earlier, I might have taken a half star off for the need to use a modal transform for layers, but it isn't that hard to adapt, frankly? And I would be adding on the half star anyway, now, because ArtStudio has been on 3 iPads of mine and was essential on each. We have a lot of choices, which I personally like, when it comes to art apps on iPad, but over and over ArtStudio has been the go to app which I use like I use Photoshop on my desktop computer. Photoshop is a must have, and similarly, ArtStudio does the same jobs on my iPad. And it does it in a very familiar and understandable way, if you normally use PS. So even if I get romanced by other apps on my iPad Pro, the images will probably be partially done in ArtStudio, as most images will touch Photoshop at some point when I am working on my Mac. I could list things that I think are great and there are many. But I think it is probably more meaningful to say that I don't think there is anything "wrong" with ArtStudio. Sure, more features, easier to do, I am on board. But ArtStudio is what I go to when I run into a problem doing whatever I want to do elsewhere. And that has been true over 3 well-used iPads. That is a compliment that I don't pass out much. It was the "first installed" art app on iPad #2 and #3. I probably will do so on number 4, if and when that happens. LuckyClan willing. Nice job folks.

Review and SplitView feature consideration

Man oh man, where do I start. Well first I have to say that, ever since I had my hands on this app, waaayyy back before I even got my second Ipad or my IPad Pro. This app has changed my life. I was finally able to draw in places outside of my computer and it enabled me to draw most of my art into DeviantArt, and due to the capabilities and features of this app that strongly mimics that of a computer art programmer like Photoshop and Paint Tool Sai, I naturally got a tonne of friends and recognition ☺️

With that being side, I would like to share an opinion on how this could be even greater. If it had the split view feature exclusive to the IPad Pro, applied to it. Importing photos and images are still gonna be legit but with split view, we could draw stuff and reference it straight off of images searched off of Google Images in Safari and Import images mostly for the color-dropping capability. 😁

Awesome Art App

To preface, I used version 5.98 on an iPad using iOS 9.2.1. This tool is very similar to Photoshop, however, understandably not boasting as many features as Photoshop does, though. It still has many very useful features, including layering, filters, relative ease of use, etc. The biggest issue I had with this app were ones that naturally come with any touch screen-based application, being things such as the issue of some of the screen needs to be used for commands, however, these can be hidden through a simple button on the top right corner. Another issue, however, is the price point. It can be tough to justify spending five dollars on any application, but for one who is serious about creating art and wants to primarily use one’s iPad to do so, this a great tool with lots of great features.
