I can't say no other! (It's the best art app ever)❤️


I love this app it's just like paint tool sai but in there own way! I would love if more Brushes and shading tools would to come in, but the newest update is amazing! I always needed more space to save my colors. It has so much to it now and I’m excited! But It would be nice if more shading tools were added not just the water drop tool.
But Where it’s at right now is Perfect! I do recommend this app if you do digital art but can’t find a comfortable app. it’s really easy to understand and it’s relaxing I do recommend 10/10

Outstanding app


I have used numerous painting,drawing and illustration apps. This is by far the best I have found. It just works! Easy to pick up and start using right away. It has a huge selection of tool. The paid version is inexpensive and much better than subscription based app that aren't as good. I bought it once and have had it on numerous devices. By far my most used drawing app. Thanks go out to the developers

Amazing, but...


It would be nice if you could have unlimited layers, so you can have a larger canvas. It doesn't need to be the 4000x4000 top canvas size. Maybe 3000, because if people want to make a comic or something it can be a little hard. But, it's amazing still. It's just a little weird to buy this and only get unlimited brushes and not being able to have unlimited layers/bigger size. But, still love it, and I'm waiting for the update to see the new possibilities!
