Absolutely fantastic app!


I’ve had this app since it first came out. It was very good. But now that it’s been updated it’s absolutely beyond fabulous. It has brushes in various geometric shapes. You can use them as is or you can open the brush engine and set up the brushes as you wish. Spacing, opacity, on and on. Amazing and quite sophisticated.

The app was made by one of the people from Pixite. They make only quality apps and that quality shows here, as well as the brilliant creativity.

Bravo! Well worth the money! Hours of creative fun here!

Paint with geometric forms

P.mousse Esq.

So happy to see an update! And promise of more to come! I feared Deco Sketch would be phased out by the next iOS upgrade. Although some of the brushes can be found in similar form in other apps, many are unique to DS, and none bring to the table anything like its geometric variety and versatility. Paint from scratch or add effects to an existing image. Brilliant!

My only quibble is I'm puzzled by why "redo" sits above "undo," in reverse of the standard alignment. For awhile I thought "undo" didn't work.

Love the app.

One issue. Whatever yu you all did the I CV obs to choose between brushes etc are now as small as a pin head. Maybe for iPad they are bigger but on a 7splus they are way too small in my opinion.

Developer Response

Thanks for noting the UI bug on the plus size phones. Sorry about that. We'll get it fixed in the next version.
