    I love this app, I used it daily and drew thousands of images using it, then one day while drawing in great detail the app stopped working and never has been usable again. I lost all the work in my account and despite deleting and reinstalling the app, there is no change. I can no longer use it at all. It just freezes. I'm miserable without the use of this app

  • Mighty for the small projects Aug 4, 2018

    By Ave_Fish
    As far as the quality and ease of use, this app takes the cake. I’ve struggled to get into digital art because the apps are usually so unfriendly to users, but simplicity and easy to follow tutorials really helped with this app. There’s not a lot of tool options, but they’re all the tool types that I really need. Plus the fact it easily converts to a timelapse is a awesome plus. However, I am sad to say I’m currently looking for a different app as I quickly outgrew my use for this one. If all you plan to do is sketch something quick, this is the app for you. But any real project worth time and effort causes awful lag. I have my iPad Pro up to date, as well as the app, but my larger projects just can’t be supported by the functions of the app. Sometimes it’s a few second delay for a single line to show, opening and closing layers takes ten seconds to load, the fact that if you forget to “convert to timelapse” every few minutes then it will never load, or the zooming/rotating taking another ten seconds to load. It’s bad enough I don’t want anything more to do with this app anymore. Additionally, I’ve learned to work around the lack of a smudge or blur tool, but there are lots of times it would really be perfect for the looks I’m trying to create.

    As my prohject becomes more detailed the app crashes, freezes or wont respond more often. I can only make a few pen strokes at a time. Auto fill wont work at all. Maybe my phone just cant run it, but its very disappoibting when you consider that adobe is the infustry standard for graphics software. My autodesk works a lot better but i need a good vector software. I was hoping this would be it.

    Functionally simple but sufficient. Simple, clean look that's easy to use for beginners. I've unfortunately noticed 2 big and one smaller issues on high-end Samsung tablet that prevent me from using it more and that's why I rate it as I do: 1) big SPen lag when drawing that is not present in other drawing apps, 2) stuttering while zooming and panning viewport, 3) 2 finger gesture to zoom can very often cause unwanted undo or redo.

    is that its like an extension of mind. it really allows one to just. do a drawing. i love the brushes. simple. forces u to learn the device n pressure points. i love the rgb and color wheel. i dislike the needing of syncing my projects to cloud. i want to airdrop and pic up on my mac. i also want to see the standard .ai file implementation & this extended to the files app. i would love a better shape library and a way to more easily make smaller shapes. a new gesture perhaps? i also think its time to detatch from the pc. i think we should have mirrored export options 4 these mobile devices. it rly should b iphone > ipad > done. when i fire up my pc platform with a drawing display im looking for something very different as when im using my mac i have an entirely diff flow as when im using my touch laptop. your main areas of focus should b illustrator ipad illustrator traditional illustrator mobile i would keep the ui/ux the same for mobile OR like you did here i might even suggest u reinvent and totally ditch this now legacy ui. the fact is tho. many of my ideas start here. start w the best & u can get the best. this draw program on ipad with a pencil was good. as well as the countless hundreds of projects ive emptied into my phones. its literally on my first page & row of apps. praise dont get higher than that. adobe is best at this. their suite is simply. a creators joyous playground.

  • Starts off great, becomes completely unusable over time Mar 27, 2019

    By SpikeMitchell
    I’ve been using this app for about a week now, and I have to say, after growing accustomed to the layout and gestures, I’d really been enjoying it. I made some stuff I was really happy with, and if all had stayed as it was, this would be a 5 star review. However, a few days ago, the app gradually started to have issues, in that it began freezing up every 10 seconds or so, for about 3 seconds every time. To be clear, I have a new iPhone 8 and a new iPad both of which are having this issue. It does it even when you’re doing absolutely nothing in the app, or when you’re drawing, or resizing or pulling up a menu. It just happens inconsistently, and for seemingly no reason. I’ve looked it up online, emailed adobe, and even gone as far as deleting all but 6 simple pieces of my art and bought extra memory for a small price each month. Nothing has improved the problem, I haven’t had a response yet from adobe, and it makes it nearly impossible to complete anything unless you’re content with the program stopping you half way through your pen strokes to have a think every so often. Extremely frustrated and disappointed.

    App is fine but Adobe is a parasite. Go to cancel subscription, hit with a cancellation fee . Offered great new monthly rates to stay subscribed. Never got any new offers in 3 years of paying for this. No reward for existing customers? Never an email to confirm whether I want to re-up for the next year. Predatory behaviour at its best. Very hard to find complaints channel, surprise, surprise. Also super small word limit when describing why I stopped sub. Thank you for watching my Ted Talk xo

  • Wanted to love it... Oct 3, 2020

    By progresscity
    I wanted to love this app because I love the Adobe Creative Suite, but there are just way too many issues when trying to run on my brand new iPad Pro. I can't believe this has a 4.7. The gesture to undo is two fingers swiped to the left... Okay, that's a little weird, since every other app I use is either two fingers tapped or three fingers swiped to the left, but okay. But in order to move around the canvas, you also use two fingers. So good luck trying to move around, you'll be undoing like crazy. And since there's no way to turn off drawing with fingers (so that only the Pencil is recognized), there have been a LOT of times where I tried to move left and it undid something, so I tried to redo it but instead the app decided I was trying to draw... so now I can't redo what I never wanted to undo in the first place, and have to manually redo work. This is such a ridiculous oversight it makes me wonder if the app was ever tested. On top of all that, it's also super laggy on my brand new iPad Pro, so I'm not sure what that's about. I spend a lot of time drawing a stroke and then sitting back and waiting for my work to decide to show on the screen... I expected so much more from an Adobe app.

    Please change the icon to the Adaptive Icon style introduced to the later versions of Android. It's beyond time for us to have that. You guys are the worst when it comes to keeping your apps updated. Please update and provide bug fixes and optimizations for the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra and add support for 120hz displays.

  • Has many issues. Apr 4, 2020

    By Carrilynnnn
    In the beginning, it used to be good and quite easy to draw. It’s various markers and features enabled to draw easily. However, quite recently, it started to freeze quite often. Even if I zoom a little, it would freeze for approximately a minute and a half, and then just as it stopped freezing, it would freeze again. This made it impossible to draw and quite agitating as well. On a drawing which would usually take an hour to complete, I took two hours, because of the glitches and freezing, and as I went to erase the mistakes, it froze again, and erased almost half the drawing. And another issue was that if I left the app, even to reply to a message or simply because I wanted to do something else, it would immediately exit the drawing and I would not be able to undo anything, or make any changes to the previous version of the drawing. I used to love this app, but now I’m starting to loathe it and will learn how to use a different app, if these issues are not fixed. Do not waste your time on this app, because it is just a dead end.

  • Crazy Awesome Integration, Fun to Use Sep 6, 2019

    By ash8658
    I recently got a 9.7 in iPad to use for design and illustration. I initially thought I would primarily use Procreate for design, however while looking up Illustrator, I came across this adobe app. I am amazed by the seamless designs, the personalization, the easy integration and transfer capabilities from this app, to Adobe Capture, to sending the design vectors straight to illustrator on my computer within seconds! This is a High quality app that any designer should integrate into their design process. One recommendation: what I like about Procreate over this app is the variety of brush sets, the fine alterations you can make on brushes, and overall design capabilities. If Adobe Draw can get closer to ProCreate on that level, there would be absolutely no need for me to use ProCreate at all. Other option: work with ProCreate to easily transfer designs as vectors into Adobe applications.

  • Amazing App with small hiccups. May 10, 2020

    By TheMusicFriend
    I’m a beginner to vector tablet drawing, but quickly learned with this great interface. Props to adobe for making such a sleek and user friendly app for artists and noobs alike. I rated the app only 4 stars because of one pesky glitch that seems to keep cropping up. Occasionally when I’m zoomed in on a segment of my canvas, and am erasing with the eraser tool, the app will become slow or lag or freeze up or just not register my erasing gestures. Backing out to the main page doesn’t fix it either. The only thing that fixes the issue is selecting one or two different tools and either/or drawing and zooming out before returning to erase. It’s a small complaint for an otherwise brilliant app. I hope adobe keeps supporting this free app as it really is a fun and impressive tool.

    I love it, though very basic, it does have useful layers so that I can import my scanned outlines and colour using layers as well as add any additional detail. Just wish that I could still use it on my older tablet 😔 as being disabled am unable to afford another.

  • Great app! Sep 16, 2019

    By anartistontiktok
    I’ve downloaded a few other drawing apps before and this one is the best free one! I should invest in a pen to draw with and I’ve only been using my finger on my phone screen but I haven’t let that stop me from making super detailed characters. Thanks for such a great free app! My only complaint is I can only zoom out of the largest sized paper so far and it doesn’t allow me to draw anything too large, I’ve only been able to draw a character full body a couple of times and I couldn’t get as much detail as I would like, but, no major complaints at all since it’s free, I only have it on my phone and I don’t have a stylus lol, so that much is really a personal preference, as well as wanting more texture tools to draw with, but again, it’s free (I think?) so I’m content.

  • Great!... Until you try to get fancy... Nov 13, 2018

    By Los chulos.
    I’ve been using this program for over a year now, and for how simple it is, it’s honestly not only surprising but also highly impressive with how much one can do with so little, and i would fully recommend this for beginners trying to get into digital art. However I do have some complaints, despite me regularly deleting old works and, according to the app, having lots of data space left, should you try to get too detailed or complicated with your art, to program starts to act very slowly to the point of crashing (it does save automatically and for that I’m VERY grateful for, don’t get me wrong) but it would still be nice if the program could handle everything to a stronger extent. Also it would be very cool if they added a text feature, they even have pre-made speech bubbles, but no text features to put in them...Other than these things I have not complaints, and I would totally recommend this to a friend.

    Please add an eye dropper tool to copy colors from an image. And a drag tool to easily pan from one side of the image to another horizontally. But other than that this app is great and pretty easy to use I highly recommend it to anyone who likes to draw but is just starting out like me.

  • So crisp and smooth! Aug 8, 2019

    By DexySleeze
    For what i need this app is amazing. Like others, i wish there was a blending/smudging/blur tool. But with enough time and key stroke placement it does the job well enough. I wish we could add brushes though! Also, can we maybe be given the option to customize the layout more!? I’ve messed up so many layers because they’re right on the right hand side...where i accidentally switch to another layer without noticing and mess things up. I like being to able to quickly switch between brushes and colors but i have to make the controls all disappear to avoid that happening and it’s crazy annoying! It pains me to give 4 stars....because really it’s an amazing amazing tool to have. But it is also such a drag to use! I know i have to use this because of the superb quality so I just accept my fate...but my pieces take a lot longer to finish and frankly I lose all motivation when battling an app that is counterintuitive.

    Trying to move to another section of the canvas is a truly frustrating experience. Every time it becomes an endless loop of zoom in, zoom out, zoom in, undo, zoom in, undo, redo... It's a PITA. It needs to be separated from 2 finger gestures. Also options such as changing layers, hiding all but the canvas, selecting colours won't recognise the pen, only a finger tap. I've wasted more time trying to get the app to work than drawing.

  • Adobe Draw Jul 3, 2018

    By lsume82
    I understand that there is currently no cad app for iPad pro. As a mechanical engineer, I’ve spent many years making my own drawings since it’s faster than trying to explain what I want to a cad operator. I taught graphical communications and descriptive geometry at one university and taught algebra at a different university and am now retired. Having held titles such as chief engineer and engineering and maintenance manager I’ve hired and taught a fair number of engineering students and practicing engineers through my career. I retired as an executive at a medium to large defense contracting company but I still enjoy doing calculations and wish there was a basic cad app for my iPad pro. I have the A9X chip and plenty of memory. A simple app that allows the user to draw lines and input the angle of the line would be great. This app does not seem to offer the basic ability to draw lines at an input angle. Just being able to solve a sum of vectors would be great. Perhaps I’m missing something that this app offers. Anyone who is very familiar with this app might prove me wrong in my assumptions which I would be thankful for. Thx

    What a massive disappointment. I have a Galaxy Note which should be ideal for this app, but I'm finding a lot of missing features from the tutorial website and the actual app. What are you doing, Adobe? Your Windows versions have been crashing incessantly lately and your apps are missing features between iOS and Android. As time goes on, I feel like I'm receiving less features for my subscription fee.

  • Yes... but no. Dec 17, 2017

    By Izi✌🏻
    YES, this app can help you create amazing things, IF you can figure out how to work the freaking thing. Congratulations and my applause to whoever can work the controls, but in my case, it seems absolutely impossible. I have created pieces that I am quite proud of, but after spending hours on end working on a piece it would always end up being all for nothing due to a lack of one single detail, weather that be the sizing or accidentally pressing something that seems irreversible because my non-artistic and non-technologicaly capable brain can’t figure out how to control and complete my artwork. The list goes on, and I’m sorry to whoever has faces the same frustrating and tragic ending as I have; which is why I have finally come to the conclusion to delete this stupid app, along with my courage to keep trying. For some it has and will be smooth sailing on the ocean of creativity and excitement of finishing a new masterpiece, BUT for my countless others who I have known and have faced the same sorrowful ending, such as myself, it has been a rough and challenging swim to shore.
