Good app on my phone... not as much on tablet

I don't know why, but the tablet version is weaker and more frustrating than mobile version. Cannot turn off color finder (so anytime I kept my pen in the same couple centimeters, like drawing small circles, my color gets screwed up when color finder crosshairs pop up). Additionally, at least on a windows computer, cannot connect directly to deviant art, for challenges or sharing from app to deviant art website.... Makes this app highly frustrating.... Solve these issues and will give 3 stars.

It's good, it has a bug

It's good if your starting out as a digital artist and want to play around, But recently when I use it the mouse has been bugging out with my Wacom tablet, it glitches for a second showing two mouses and the leaves. This is very annoying and it makes me click things I don't want to happen. This doesn't happen in any other app, so it's not a problem with my Wacom. Please fix this ASAP, I want to get back to drawing!!

Pretty good

I wish there was a blender tool. There may be one in the pro version but I'm not paying $30 a year for that. I have been having a lot of trouble with the pinch zoom feature, when I pinch to zoom it takes about four tries before it actually works. When it doesn't work, it just picks up my pinch as a brush stroke. Other than these two things, still a good app with good feature such as carrying brushes and layer capabilities

I guess it does what it says it supposed to do. The only thing is that it is free to download, but for the pro tools its 4.99, personally I just think that it should be a bit cheaper.

The best drawing app across the board!!!

I would give it 5 stars if it offers a font function for lettering. If it already has please let me know where. I've unlocked the all features by purchasing the yearly subscription but don't see it help please if you can

its so basic, a 2nd grader can use it

No textures to the brushes. Should be just one brush with different sizes. Its like Paint , the old Paint, repackaged and refreshed. highly disappoint with this. Wish ArtFlow would make a Win 10 version. They got the texture game down pat.

It's alright

It's pretty good. I like that you get some free features, such as the layer option. Good choice of colors (can pick basically any color you want). Nice brushes. Symmetry tool comes in handy for front views. My main complaint is that there isn't a paint bucket. For me, that is absolutely necessary. There are ways around it, such as saving the file and then taking it to another program and use their paint bucket. But I'd prefer to just have the paint bucket available on this program. Another issue is that the number of layers you can use is limited.

Solid, easy to learn

I'm a novice to drawing using a tablet or computer. I have Sketchbook on my MacBook Pro, my iPad Pro, and my Surface Pro 3. I like the fact that I can use any of my devices and work on the same drawing and work with the same tools and processes. I've tried many different graphics programs and Sketchbook is the best program/app that allows me to do that. Also, the amount of tutorials and help available is helpful. While not the best, it is a good program to start with. I just wish that the iOS version had support for the Apple pencil.

Treasure turned to Trash

The reasons I gave one star. 1. Making us sign up to get certain tools, I mean that's just stupid. It wasn't always like that. 2. Less tools then before. The old free version had more tools such as oil pin, different kinds of pencils, and more. 3. To get pro it's no longer pay once then your done, but instead a subscription which is why I will no longer be willing to get pro. I'm off to go use SAI free version... it's better then this.
