Works for my needs

I like this app. It’s easy to drop a picture into the app and the picture is converted to a sketch. The quality of your picture, of course, effects the quality of the sketch. The Brightness feature helps if your picture is too dark. I’ve used it for landscape and people pictures. Both types turned out well. I have not had a problem with the app crashing.

Good concept, but...

On the plus side, it’s easy to drop a photo into the program & see it instantly converted to a pencil sketch.
On the con side, using the modification tools often caused the program to crash. It’s also very limited; not allowing you to chose colors, style of line, or anything except brightness.

Constantly Crashes

This app crashes at least 7 times out of 10. It is a waste of time restarting it to try using it again, just to crash again. Good luck if you purchase it.
