Sketchbook is an awesome drawing and sketching app, one of my favs for sure. The layout of all of the tools is really nice and clean, making it very easy to use. All of the buttons get out of your way as well to not block the canvas while you're drawing, so that's really nice too. There are a variety of brushes to choose from, the pencils are really great, but I would have like to see more painting tools (I guess it focuses on sketching though so that's fine). Lots more great features including layers, transform and symmetry drawing round out the package to make it well-worth the $5 price tag, no doubt.
One complaint I do have though is that after an hour of work once, it crashed on me and I lost my drawing completely, which was very frustrating to say the least. I was pretty surprised to see that it didn't auto-save anything while I was working on my artwork, even half-way. I have the new iPad Air, so I can't really forgive any crashes, especially because I've used other professional apps like Photoshop and Inspire Pro and have never encountered any kind of crashes even after many hours of use. Still, it only happened once so far and with all of the great features this app has, I'm happy to give it 5 stars.
Excellent for drawing or sketching, highly recommended!
I have had it with this app. Hello Procreate.
Had been working on a sketch for an hour, jump over to chat, come back and all the work is gone. Kaput. Same canvas as before, just completely blank. Brand new iPad air. This has happened too many times before, simply too unstable to be trusted. I'll go ahead and leave my ongoing requests but certainly have no hope that anything will improve at this point. Just rediscovered Procreate, it has made leaps and bounds since I first tried it, incredibly responsive, fully customizable and stable. Oh, and it, like Sketch Club, has every layer transfer mode I've been asking Sketchbook Pro to add for 2 years now. Plus colorizing, levels, etc. Too little too late. Bye.
1. More layering options: overlay, soft light, hard light, hue, etc. Sketch Club can do this.
2. Something I miss almost every time I use this, basic hue/saturation, colorizing and levels for layers. This is essential for illustration work. If I bring in a photo texture I really need the ability to adjust it. Sketch Club can ALSO do this.
3. Layer masks would be nice.
Disappointed with update 2.9.. Getting pro-create
I wrote a review to this app last year with a four star overall.
This app now goes down to 1 star from the disturbing amount of crashes I get. I have been using this app 3 years now and I never had any complaints, until now. I frequently use this app when designing logos and every time I resize a font or move it around the app goes blank and shut downs. The ios6 interface never gave me such problem but ever since the update, all I get is lag in the interface and constant crashes and loss of work.
I have insisted on using this app since I got used to the interface and somehow refrained from using pro-create.. I might just start doing so.
I'm using this app on the iPad2.. I guess app developers only care about the newest devices that apple make these days. Disappointing
