Ratings and Reviews
Amazing app but something changed it...
So I am quite an editor And as well I do digital art. I've been looking for quite some time for an app that I can edit with that is free and gets the job done with editing, and finally I found one! It was Ibis Paint X, I love editing especially with an app that doesn't call for money, until I found out for the new update. The new update threw me off... From when erasing and all the brushes have changed which I do not like. When erasing the brush gets bigger which I do not like. For smaller areas you would need to go down in a straight line (like If you were in a street) and the street went onto the houses and you just need a little brush to get some of the little paint off the houses, well that used to happen... But now you can't, the brush will be small then get bigger and bigger, so that's what I do not like. As well as the brushes, the brushes... Ah let's see here, well the brushes don't have their same style anymore really, like the Pin dip and the Airbrush they both have the dark opacity Now instead of when back then the airbrush would Be lighter and all and you could go over and over again until you like the opacity you get. Honestly I think this app is awesome and amazing, but I just hope they can fix this so when making art, things won't bother you as much. So this is why I am giving this app a four star out of five.
This is an amazing app and I use it all the time. I love all the effects such as blurring, layers, copy and paste, and so much more. You also get to view a time-lapse of your work, which I think is awesome. There are just two very minor things that sorta bug me a bit. The first one is really not that big of a deal, but when I’m viewing the top art pieces, sometimes I like to watch the time lapse. After I finish watching it, It starts back at the beginning and it moves really slow. The other thing is also not a huge deal, but when you make the line more transparent, you can’t use the bucket tool. An example of a time where this was an inconvenience was I was drawing a light, and wanted to make the lit area of the wall lighter. I didn’t want a line to show, so I made it super transparent, almost invisible. But when I tried to use the bucket tool, it covered my whole wall. It’s almost like the app doesn’t think a light line is a line at all. It was no big deal, because a found another way, but for a while I thought I would have to color in the whole wall by hand. So, overall, this app gets a gold star sticker from me, but there are just a few little kinks to be worked out.
Lot To Offer!
This app really does have quite a lot to offer as far as choice of pallets and patterns and raw-pure creativity. There are a few things that could be improved and added, however I haven’t seen a comparable app yet that is-FREE! That’s what sets this up and out the most from any other one in the App Store. The fact that it is a free download and you can have access to their entire broad range of brushes and schemes and tools all by watching just one advertisement. Literally just by watching one 30second advertisement unlocked everything for 18 hours! That’s pretty fair, actually it’s more than generous. It did take me just a little time to figure it out and how to use it but it became a breeze after just taking a few minutes to figure out how it all worked. Really good job to the creators and definitely do look forward to experiencing what these developers do with this app. Is it for everyone? Well you’ll have to download it and give it a shot. Who know you might be like me and get surprised by how well this app functions. Definitely recommend using a “pen” or stylus because it enhances everything quite perfectly. 👍
