With Isometrically images are created on a triangular grid. You can quickly create the illusion of 3D by using different shades for sides in different orientations.

It is really easy to use. Just tap to add a point. Tap again. And again. When you tap on the starting point the shape you outlined will be drawn. An Apple Pencil works great for this on iPad, but because it snaps to the grid it also works well on iPhone or without a stylus.

You can drag to move around the canvas. Pinch to zoom in and out. Choose colours by tapping on them. It also offers full layer control (including order and opacity) for advanced sketches.

Images can be exported in easily shareable formats, but also in a vector format which could be used for professional work such as web design or printed out at extremely high quality. It also works great for Icon or logo design (it was of course used for its own Icon, but many other products and companies have Icons which would have been trivial to make with Isometrically).

What’s New

Version 3.0

Duplicate layers
Edit the colour or delete any items within a layer
Move layers

(The core editing experience is still streamlined and fast, but now you can make very fine grained tweaks if you want to. Open the layers menu: a single tap selects a layer, a double tap accesses all the advanced features.)

Intuitive Design Method

I can easily get my mind around the “point-by-point” drawing method used by this app. Other isometric drawing tools I’ve tried paint with tiles, which I find frustrating. By defining an isometric face by points, I can cleanly execute an idea without fiddling with rotating tiles. This app keeps each object element that I draw in a separate layer within a group, making it possible to go back and edit them individually without inadvertently changing other parts. I can also separate groups of objects into discrete layers with different properties (like color and transparency), allowing complex designs. The UI for choosing color schemes is excellent, too.

My only suggestion to make this a five star app would be adding the ability to move a group with a touch gesture like a two-finger drag. Currently, group layers are moved by tapping up, down, left, right buttons in a blind editing box. It would be better if I could move a group layer with a two-finger drag.
