Buggiest app I have ever owned!
After downloading this app, I fell in love with it, but found out after using it for only about 10 minutes, it will freeze and then crash. It usually happens when I am zoomed in all the way and trying to undo something. This app also does a terrible job of saving your progress. I thought the app data would include your recent drawings, but when I deleted the app and re downloaded to troubleshoot the issue, the drawings were gone and the issue was still there. I ended up getting the flash of a blue screen while using this app and had to restore my iPad to factory settings then recover from iCloud. The app STILL crashes and is messing with my iOS. PLEASE update this app since we are already almost two complete iOS versions above what it was when this was last updated.
Love it... But...
This is the absolute best drawing app that I've tried on the App Store. I do have one complaint though. I worked really hard for a few hours to set up a background of a picture and I decided I wanted to save my progress so that if I didn't like my finished work I could at least go back and start from that point easily. There is no way to save it so I just published it. I was thinking that I would still be able to go back to it and continue but that is not an option. I understand not allowing the user to upload photos that they could then claim to have drawn but if it is created in the app I should be able to reopen it and add to it.
Needs a lot of work, but promising...!
I would give it more stars but there is so much missing from it that my better judgment won't let me. It needs a LOT more colors to choose from, and more tools; like a blender, paint brush with paints and a color wheel with dropper, to pick your own colors!!! the app crashes all the time and pictures that took me hours to draw get deleted by the app, or won't show up on the image gallery... There needs to also be a way to save your work within the app, as well as being able to delete or edit art work that you have already published! It's a lot but these things would make it a contender with other art/draw apps!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
