Using it for a long time :)

[updated version] So basically, this was my first art app ever, though I deleted it for a few months, I came back, but that was long ago. First of all, pointers: DONT HIT THE HISTORY BUTTON, it will make u crash, and if u do, quickly hit go back before u crash, with luck it will save. But other than that it's glitch free! It's useful, the only thing I request is a flip button, u know a button where u can flip your art the other way? It would be extremely helpful, because I can only perfect one anime eye, and i CAN DUPLICATE, however I can't flip it the other way, which is very hard for me, anyways I recommend you to try this out and give it a chance thank you for ur time :)
AND For the people who hate this app, it's what you pay for, this isn't a professional app! But I definitely recommend it to 15 and under, it's pretty easy to understand unlike the apps suggest LIKE procreate and whatever that person suggested, those are really bad apps, while this one is much more helpful, heck I'd say it's even better! If your uneasy take it from someone who's had this for 3 years, don't judge something by its cover, and EVERY app has glitches, accept it, and don't regret it. Peace ✌️

My favorite painting app on the store

This app is awesome! I really like how you can replay the brush strokes used in creating each painting. I also really like the online community. Being able to upload my best work for others to see/comment on online is really cool! All-in-all, fantastic app!

Good but not great

If you want an app to just goof around with, this is fine. There are other apps that are much better regarding iPad illustration. UI is simple, not as robust as Procreate, SketchClub,etc. but is good in its own right.
