Decent start but needs enhancements

I think this is an okay start to teaching folks how to learn how to draw through use of the iPad. However, I recently purchased the Pencil stylus by the company 53 (apparently the only stylus sold in the Apple Retail Store). I really wished that the app supported stylus models such as Pencil or Pogo.

Also, when trying to post a drawing to Facebook, I received an error that states "App Not Setup: The developers of this app have not set up this app properly for Facebook Login."

I also wish that the app's teachings show how to use the popular free app, Paper. I'm assuming they will carry over into other similar apps.


Less than 36 hours after I downloaded this program, none of the lessons I downloaded are showing up. Trying to restore my previous downloads just crashes the app. When it works it's a great app, but I'd save your money.

Edit: I reinstalled the app and restored my purchases but, of course, it didn't save my previous drawings. The program worked for another two days before having the same problem.

Edit 2015: The paid for lessons will not even load. It seems WF has given up on supporting this program. It's a shame because when it worked, it was very helpful.

Wouldn't load lessons

I love the details and how simple it is to use, and I was very excited to use this app, except I've been waiting, trying different wifis, and deleted the app and downloaded it again, but every time I do, it says "Can't fetch lessons", which I'm pretty disappointed about that.
