Workaround for saving images

While this is not a substitute for fixing the app, you can at least access your saved images by using iTunes file sharing.

Plug your device in to your computer, start iTunes, click on your device (next to the Library pop-up menu in the bar below the iTunes play/volume controls), click Apps, scroll the iTunes window down to File Sharing, and select SketchTime in the list of apps on the left.

In the list of SketchTime documents, select the Images folder, then click the Save to button below the list. This will save the Images folder on your computer.

The images are named PaintingDrawing_1.png, PaintingDrawing_2.png, etc. There are also PaintingPreview and PaintingThumbnail images, and if you have drawn on top of a photo, there is PaintingPhoto_#.png.

The author hasn't updated any of his apps in over 2 years, so I'm not holding my breath.

Great, simple, full-functioned

It's a really nice app to use, because of the tasteful yet no-nonsense design, and the ease of functionality. It's not a full-fledged paint shop app, but this is a strength because it eliminates all distractions. You have only the necessities, and your creativity is thus liberated.

Lastly, to the developers, I preferred the previous icon and interface design. The paper-on-wood look was so zen. The flat black-on-white it's been replaced by is a bit jarring by comparison.

Works great

Newer review:
Wish there's an option to export arts multiple arts at once.

New review:
Still perfect for a quick fix. Would be lovely to be able to export videos and back up my arts.

I just upgraded my iOS, and had to resort to using iFunbox to copy the whole app folder to make a backup, then had to create a blank art, then put my back up inside app folder.

Really need a back up function. Seriously.

Old review:
I love that there's no lagging while drawing at all. There's no layers, but that's good for practice. Perfect for a quick fix
