Best all in one sketch/journal/photos app

Had this app on my phone for quite a while thinking it was mainly a sketch app. After looking for a dream journal app, and not finding any that worked well and would allow you to mix text, scalable photos, objects and sketch all in one. I tried this app and wow, it is GREAT for that.

So I had this dream about a beluga whale jumping out of the water into my arms and the two of us walking around a seaside town with him asking to go into a shop or hang out in a park. Within this app using its text feature I wrote down the dream. Then I went on the Internet and found some photos of beluga whales that I saved to camera roll and added them into this journal entry. I then sketched a stick figure holding a little whale. The whole funky looking journal entry is able to be emailed as a PDF plus it supports exports to Dropbox, iCloud and more. It rocks!

Great app....but

This my go to app for writing with my Apple Pencil. Love how the app performs. Just one complaint. Maybe I overlooked it but their is no way to create a password for Books like my personal journal. Seems like an obvious feature. I'd like to rate this app with 4.5 stars but can't so I gave it 4 stars.

Good, but more colors

I want a better variety of colors! That's literally it! Just make like a more colors option, plz! But other than that, it's a great app
