paid 30$ and it doesn't have the same stuff as desktop

So, I have the sketchbook pro app (full paid "pro" version) on my surface 3 and it's great, but I'm a little disappointed that it's not the same as the "desktop" version. And that we don't seem to get as many brushes? I thought paying for the full version unlocked ALL of the available brushes no matter what device you are using. I'll use it for the year and then I think I'm going to get manga studio or something like it, at least those offer more brushes.

Pro is okay.

PLEASE UPDATE AND ADD MORE FEATURES!!! I NEED ADJUSTABLE CANVAS SIZES AND THE ABILITY TO SELECT PARTS OF A LAYER TO TRANSFORM INSTEAD OF THE WHOLE LAYER. I'm getting ready to pay 12x as much for Illustrator, which I don't know how to use! Please look at Layer Paint HD on Android. They have a lot more features and its still user friendly. Oh my gosh... PLEASE UPDATE!!!!! I like using this app compared to others but I really wish were more options like adjustable canvas size and the ability to lasso and transform parts of one layer VS. the whole layer.I would like to be able to do higher resolution sketches.

Severely crippled

Android version is free for galaxy note 5 but, with this version you get next to nothing unless you pay a 30$ per year subscription

I really like the app but Sketch Book keeps closing for me! Please help and fix the app. I would really like to enjoy the full resources it offers. Its a great app for beginners to learn how to draw! It comes with free (limited) layers, techniques, ect.

Awesome stuff

Didn't give it a full 5 stars because I purchased it on Android, upgraded my phone, and then AD upgraded it, and wanted to charge me for a subscription rather than allowing another one-time download. Functionally awesome, though.

Nice App But Buggy

This is a really nice drawing app, but A LOT of times key components disappear (layering options, tool picker, etc.) It gets very annoying having to close the app to try and make them visible again (which doesn't always fix it ) and sometimes you just have to guess what your tapping on just until you happen to choose what you want. Unless this is just my tablet screwing up, I would hope that it gets fixed sometime in the future. :)

Decent as free

I'm still very new to Autodesk Sketchbook. When I started using the app I was forced to sign up for membership to get extra features I needed, like layers. It works pretty well. Not going to make me buy the Pro version since I don't have that kind of money. It's really difficult to work with blurry resolution whenever I have to draw closer. Pen pressure doesn't seem to be working. I guess it isn't a problem if I buy the full version.

Awesome App

This is the best app I used for both my phone ( Note 5) and PC (windows 10). By far the most complete and thorough app. Allowing me to use techniqes that I would be able to do my hand, on a real canvas. Great buy!!

Minor feature issue

Could use improved functionality for the eraser on the new Surface pen. For instance, when I'm using shape styles etc. I expect the eraser nub to still act as an eraser, but instead SketchBook interprets it as normal pen input.

Great app

If you want auto desk for Surface, this is a great app. Especially since the pro version doesn't seem to have palm rejection at the moment.
