Looks like this app is working much better on iPad Pro

Looks like your app is working better, now!
Have not experience any crashing with the new update.
Worked on two sketches for over 30 minutes with no crash.
I’ll continue using this as it seems your app is working much better, even with my third party Adonit stylus.
Thank You for tracking down the issue.
I will keep you updated here if I find any other issues!
I use your app a lot through the years!

Colored paper! Thank you


Best colored pencil sketching app in the store and one of the best sketching apps period. Lovely experience using this.

Thank you for the review. I'm glad to make you happy:-)

Fantastic app for drawing!


If you like to draw, you'll love this app. I have tried several apps for artists on the iPad -- ArtSudio and Procreate to name a couple good ones -- but when it comes to drawing I keep on returning to this app. The interface is minimalist but complete. It helps with your drawing rather than getting in the way. The pencil selection is quick and fun to use. And the performance is very good. There is very little lag when drawing! Something I cannot say about the other apps. I use a stylus for architectural drawings and never miss a corner. If you like drawing from photos, there is even a photo outlining feature to get you started. This is not an app for all illustration tasks, to it's credit it doesn't try to be, but for free hand drawing, in my opinion, it is the best.
