Editors’ Notes

Sketches Pro? It’s just like the Tayasui Sketches app we’re so enamored with… except it comes with layers, extra tools, and all sorts of expert features. If you’re a serious artist—or a longtime doodler like us—you can’t do better than Tayasui.

Favorite drawing app!


My only problem with the app is that it keeps saving screenshots of the "sketches" that I work on. Usually if I have closed the app while a drawing is in use, if I open the app again, the drawing will be screenshot and saved to my camera roll. Also, if I start a new drawing or open a different drawing, it screenshots those too. No matter how many times I open and close the app or any drawing, it will always screenshot them. Even if I start a new drawing, and leave it blank, it will be screenshot. It's not even a high quality image like when you manually save from the folder view, so I don't understand why it keeps doing that. If there's a way to make that stop, someone please teach me how. Because it's really annoying and tedious when I have to go through all those screenshots and pick out the high quality saves and delete the unnecessary screenshots. Developers, please fix this problem if it's not supposed to do that.
Overall awesome app with a great selection of tools and really useful on mobile. I much prefer Tayasui to Adobe Draw (which many people use and I don't understand how or why because it's so frustrating to work with on a phone).



I really like this app a lot especially when you can use layers in the pro app. There is a lot of different types of brushes and sizes. It has the ruler for straight or diagonal drawing, water color, and more. The only thing that its missing to me is the the shape section to make a perfect circle or square. I'm not a good drawer but adding this would benefit a lot of people (this shape is already in their other app: memeopad). I'm using the bamboo sketch pen ony iPhone 6 on this app. The pen have a slight delay but the sketch app have different various hand position (right, right hand upward, right hand downward, and vice versa). When using the pen, drawing on the edge of the phone is tricky, you would draw a shape and it would sometime skip toward the edge. Coloring the edge can be challenging unless you zoom in. Overall, my family enjoy this app and this is a good app on the go.
