Great tools, Impossible accessibility

Fifes descended

I definitely love this app. These tools are BEYOND amazing and can really spark creativity inside someone. I really loved this app and how it looked. I was triumphant getting in to the system and starting my first manga, but then...

You literally need to be a mangaka to use this app.

I wish this was much more accessible in it’s tools. I always leave the lines when making specific panels, the whole design is hard and overall tedious to use. Sometimes I might find myself doing something on the paper that I don’t want, and that’s because it’s small and annoying. If you could really change this to make it so that you don’t need to be an artist (because Apple advertised it as for anyone). ありがと〜

Very helpful


I’m am currently creating a manga series, and this app is very helpful to me as I am now able to keep my thumbnail sketches with me at all times, and in one organized place. It takes a little bit of time to learn how to use all the functions of the app, but once you get it down pat it’s relatively easy to use. It hasn’t crashed on me at all, and all my save data has been safe the entire time I’ve been using it. The tutorials are easy to understand, and the practice pages are great. I’m very grateful for a free app like this, it’s great for planning, doodling, and practicing creating manga!

A little confusing but it is great for digital Mangaka Artists


It is a learning curve, for sure, but once I learn how all the tools serve their purpose, this thing will be a breeze. One thing I would request they add is some pre done action fonts for Me to put in. Not just the "Pow" and "Crash" stuff, but also the mundane actions, like sipping on a drink. A good example is action fonts from "Bakuman" So, action fonts, please! I'll pay for them!!

UPDATE : app crashes when going from one page to another, after working on previous page.
