Customer Reviews

Great, clean interface

I use this program everyday. I'm a caricature artist and use it for live digital events and private commissions. It's clean, simple interface is great and uncomplicated which makes for quick and easy drawing.
It also has some deeper features where you can tweek the tools to your preferences. I like sharp, clean lines and this program works great with the Apple Pencil!
Another awesome feature is the iCloud save feature. There is nothing to set-up - you just draw and your drawing are automatically saved safe in the cloud - worry free.
The only thing I would like to see added is perhaps better custom color palette usability and more room for saved tools. I would also LOVE to have an option to place individual tools on the screen layout.
Overall, the best program I've found for sketching, digitally inking lines, and final coloring.


So I've been using this app for a while but ever since thanksgiving, I've been getting these moments where it will freeze and when I reopen the app, it either looks glitches out and missing all or most of the, layers I worked on for hours. Sometimes I'll take a break for the night to sleep but I'm the morning when I want to continue working on the unfinished digital art piece, it looks glitched out or/and missing most of the layers that were there before. When this does occur, Sometimes on a rare occasion, later ,if it got rid of 90% of 3 days of work when it first happened, it will reset everything again and get rid of all the new stuff I worked on after the incident and give me 50% of the original work. Beside this happening 50% of the time I use the app now, the sketch app is fine. I don't recommend using the app unless you are willing to take the risk of all your work disappearing out of no where.

Almost perfect (Updated)

This is amazing, especially the pro version. The only thing missing for me is better Apple Pencil support. Many of the tools still don't take advantage of its pressure sensitivity and tilt. It would be nice if the tilt and pressure could somehow be tied to at least the size of the brush, but ideally size and opacity.

EDIT: OK, turns out you can make any (?) brush/tool respond at least to pressure by bringing up the pill thing and tapping on the brush icon. There it has sliders for "min/max opacity". If you set min to 0 and max to max the brush will respond to pressure.

Some brushes respond to tilt, but not all. If this aspect of the app could be streamlined a bit, and maybe it made clear how size+opacity can be natively tied to brushes, that would make this already amazing app even more amazing.
