Customer Reviews

Great potential, but spotty (literally).

I love this app and use it for everything from artwork, to visual planning and notes but there is one fatal flaw: a blotchy quality when trying to fill any area. When zoomed in this isn't noticeable, but when viewing at full size the area that I already filled in appears to have gaps (as if it was scribbled, not fully filled). This is beyond frustrating, and can only be remedied by going over the area repeatedly until it appears more filled. I've had this issue for at least a year, and am very surprised an update hasn't been made to correct it. This is such a small but devastating flaw that keeps this app from being great, please amend this!

Please Resurrect this App and Make it Shine on the iPad Pro

As another reviewer mentioned, this used to be the best vector based drawing app on iOS. And in many ways, it is still better than the current crop of apps out there.

Autodesk, PLEASE renew development of this app and fully support the iPad Pro and Apple Pencil. If you could add in some better export features to allow for use with other vector apps or at least allow exporting of really large image sizes, that would be fantastic. I create digital art that I print on 22"x17" paper and sometimes bigger, and would love to print art created with Ink.

I hope you are listening, Autodesk.

Skip this.

In its early days, this was an app worth getting simply because it did vector graphics with interesting brush mechanics, despite the numerous and quite obvious bugs and quirks. But now there are other options, and Autodesk has essentially abandoned this app with no updates in over a year. Additionally, they have taken over iDraw (which many consider the best vector drawing app in the App Store) and rebranded it as Autodesk Graphic. Try that one instead.
