  • DEVELOPERS PLEASE READ It is good but... Mar 2, 2019

    By ray the maniac🤘🏻🌟
    I wish the both of the apps were combined having to go to separate apps all the time to draw different things is really annoying I wish there was a pencil in both of them I wish that the pens were in both of them really adobe I really wish you would just combine both of the apps by now i’m an artist I absolutely love your program it’s free it’s good I like it I just wish That you were combined both and also no smudge stick tool really... it’s really annoying that I can’t combine the colors I can’t have a good fade I know that your app is mostly meant for making logos but I really really wish you would combine both of the apps and add a smudge stick it’s really annoying that I can’t combine the colors or make the colors fade out So please for the love of God add a smudge stick but I genuinely love the watercolor brushes And please please just combined and the stupid apps If you read this developers thank you I know it’s really long but I genuinely want your app to be improved on. me and my mother both use this app and I love it it has a good system there’s layers all kinds of things I genuinely love it. it’s just I wish that you would do things that other things also do other free programs that are more crappy than you. you like one of the best free programs I’ve ever found please continue what you’re doing but please make some improvements and for the love of goodness add a Smudge stick! thank you for reading!

  • Blown away by the watercolor in this app May 17, 2018

    By sorchay
    Kudos to whoever programmed the watercolor part of this app! This is my favorite painting app by far, and I’ve tried several including the most popular and paid art apps. What keeps me coming back (addicted!) to Adobe Sketch is the beautiful subtlety of how the paint interacts with the surface. Other apps can achieve fairly realistic edges and blending, but with my brush stylus and this app, I feel like I’m painting with watercolor, the way real watercolor works. I forget that I’m working in digital format because the tools seem to work the same way. The paper is “wet” at first and the paint interacts with it, spreads and dries down. Washes interact with each other, and the flow setting is so intuitive, works the same as deciding water to pigment ratio. This app is so realistic I even found myself instinctively lifting paint. Not erasing, but lifting with water just as I would in real life. Love the rest of the app too but I’m especially appreciative of the obvious care that went into the watercolor functions. Thanks! One wish: it would round out the experience if I could have a palette of preselected colors set out instead of choosing anew each time I change colors, but I get by with the color picker. It’s just a little slower than having key colors already “mixed” and at the ready while I paint.

    Simple & Fun! It has all the tools I need, it's lag-free on my device, and the Projects feature is a nice touch. The UI doesn't get in the way, either! I don't like that you have to pay for a non-preset canvas, but you don't have to pay for a lot at all, otherwise. Won't give it 5 Stars, though. In other reviews, there appears to be a whole lot of Adobe shenanigans that don't sound good.

    Ok so let's start with the downs. Can't zoom in very much, needs few more starting brushes ( not that big of a deal ). And where you can put pictures in it so you can edit them, now I do not know a lot in this (I just know the basics so if there is a way I will probably find out soon). 😐😍 it's really good also because it has layers and I love the " paint brush " with the paint texture it's AMAZING definitely my favorite brush out of all of them I've tried so far. If you could make the paint brush be able to be more fine/thin that would be great 👍🏻😃😄. I love this and I'd say it's about 7 out of 10 compared to a general PC version. I think all it needs is a few tweaks to be one of the best ( maybe even the best ) photoshop/editing program on the App Store. This is probably the BEST photoshop type thing I've tried besides sketch book ( another one for IOS App Store ). Overall this is great and I use it every day to improve my editing/ animation skills, I also like to do this as a hobby ( when I'm bored ) or just for fun. 😄 ( edit ) Please make it so we can zoom in more... I animate on this and I love this app but I wish we could zoom in a little bit more. Please add this and this will be better this is already AMAZING! 😄.

    I use this app to make my personalized portraits almost every day. I think the Adobe system is very good, I have been using Photoshop for over 20 years, unfortunately limiting the number of layers on the AdobeSketche also limits and slows down the work of the illustrator. I also have had some problems with closing the app for no reason, usually when the file is heavy.

    I LOVE this app and use it often when I forget my graphic tablet and need it for a job. However, one HUGE hindering is not being able to create an image with transparency... not even an option to save as .PNG I don't want to always use Adobe Draw because I want the textures available with Sketch, but ar the same time? I absolutely NEED a transparent background sometimes. You can't even fill in solid color on Sketch like you can in draw. Please fix this!

    Since installing the app, it has progressively gotten slower and more laggy. Don't know if its the app itself, from an update or just user interaction. I am getting increasingly frustrated at the time it takes to do a simple action like change a colour or adjust brush size. Please fix this, I have many projects I plan to work on in this app and its taking triple the time that it originally should.

    I have used this app for a few months now and it has worked perfectly. But. Just moments ago it forced me to create an account. After I did it, it deleted ALL of my previous artworks. Some of them were just sketches but others were finished pieces. I didnt want an account but it made me get one. Where did all of my work go? Let me know if theres a way to get that stuff back please.

  • RIP Adobe Feb 13, 2018

    By Scamyou
    Adobe’s creative ecosystem makes it almost impossible to be creative without signing up, signing in, digging into your bank account.... monthly, working without a network connection and paying for another upgrade to the application. I’ve been working with Apple products since 1989 and I consider myself to be fairly tech oriented. I bought an iPad Pro specifically to work with lightroom and other Adobe products. Honestly, I can’t get half of their products to work anymore. Unless you are some kind of Adobe fan boy, you will realize that there are other products out there that far surpass the performance and price of most Adobe products. Save the monthly fees and your sanity from trying to get this bloatware to operate as you would expect and FIND ANOTHER WAY. Adobe was is king once upon a time but all empires eventually collapse. Adobe is more interested in connecting to your bank account for its monthly extraction than it is interested in creating a product that are actually useful. I don’t want your slow cloud, I don’t want to be stressed out with my machine can’t remember my Adobe ID so that I can use your app, I don’t want another monthly fee so that the application that I already purchased will do what it should already do. Skip this product and go give your money to a developer who will actually make your creative experience seamless and enjoyable. Like Procreate. Now I’m gonna go delete all of adobes applications off of my iPad Pro and I will never look back.

  • It’s amazing, and free Jan 4, 2019

    By Leafeon :3
    I’ve been using this app for a while now (two or three years, maybe?) and its REALLY GOOD. Of course it has its downsides, like limitations on certain things such as the layers and brush sizes, but otherwise, its great. Besides, its free. At the same time, there are some features I would like to have. For one, it would be really nice to have a fill/paint bucket tool. It’s really time consuming to finish the line art of a drawing then having to create a separate layer to color in everything. With something like that, 15 minutes of base coloring turns into 30 seconds. I don’t really have a problem with the layers because I never really use too many, merging some together whenever I reach the limit. However, I’d really love the zoom to be bigger. I understand that adobe sketch isn’t a vector based app (at least I don’t think it is...), but when I try to add detail to something, the limit to the zoom is pretty unhelpful. Nevertheless, if you’re looking for a fairly high quality art program for the minimum price, I suggest Adobe Sketch.

  • Simple and Easy to Use Apr 29, 2019

    By Alma_II
    I have used this continuously for the past 2 years with 2017 iPad Pro and Apple Pencil 1. It works really well. I like drawing with pencil, so that is honestly all I have used. But I can say this has made me like drawing more on an iPad than in real life (odd to say that) Functions such as undo, repeat, ability to create layers, copy drawing, translate layers, etc., become second nature after enough use. And when they do, it feels very fluid. Give it time to build this second nature, you won’t be disappointed. Now for a comment to the developers (not a complaint). One thing I would like the developers to do is allow you to reduce the pencils/pens on the side bar. So far I have used the pencil, pen, and eraser. I don’t use any of the others provided. It would be nice to hid the pens I do not use and ONLY have the ones you use out. Again, this is not a complaint, this is more of me thinking of something that (in my mind) could make the App even better. After all, it is an awesome app that is entirely free.

  • Stunned! PLEASE READ Jul 4, 2018

    By BayGrace325
    I had searched so hard to find an app that would seek my art needs. I looked at some animation apps, some weird kid doodling ones, and some very high tech apps. I finally got this one because of the great reviews. I thought it was pretty hard to use at first, and thought about getting a new app. BUT I decided to try it out. Happy about my decision I have created some of the cutest artwork!! This helped me evolve my art style (which I was desperate to do.) It surprisingly became a mix of both my old and new art styles which is WAY better than either styles individually. Many compliments to this app, and thanks for letting it all be free. This app should cost 4.99, but I’m glad it doesn’t! I have no current requests to this wonderful app except for a smear option, so thanks for reading my review.

    This app definitely has more brushes than it's other brother I guess you could say it which is adobe illustrator. You have a lot more freedom in this app but I just feel like adobe could have giving you just a little bit more and that's why I'm giving this app 4 stars.

  • Great App and a great addition to the drawing world Feb 26, 2020

    By CJ-391
    I really do enjoy that they made a specific application for the iPad. The tools are laid out nicely and very organized, I felt that on the iPad it doesn’t crowd the screen like it does on the PC version. The brushes are finally easier access! It’s as easy as tapping on the left side, and you have complete control of your brush strokes using the flow dynamics. It was a bit of learning curve at first but they have a nice tutorial for every new user before you dive in blind. Overall, I wasn’t fan of Photoshop on the PC but they did such a good job on breaking every tool down and simplified it into this app, that I have now become a fan. The only thing that I would change (that’s the reason I gave it 4 stars) is that I would do something about the touch gestures. Even though they are great and easy to use. I’m actually left handed and draw in all sorts of positions I even flip my hand upside down to draw certain areas. The reason is that my hand keeps touching the screen and I have to constantly go back erase the left over lines my hand has drawn. Other than that phenomenal job on the app you have truly redeemed yourself with this application! Many Thanks Adobe, CJ

  • 2 years now and things are still the same Sep 26, 2019

    By Elskeleto
    Amazing app but ridiculous. Been doing some research and file functionality and managing your brushes still seems to be a feature that’s "brushed" aside. No option to delete brushes transferred from the CC files to iPad. You cannot move or rename them either. No way of telling if you already uploaded your brushes while navigating through the CC folder. If you get a duplicate of over 300 brushes your out of luck. Official forums from over a year ago only offer a solution to uninstall. The other option is just plain ridiculous. They want you to delete your brushes form CC, but that still doesn’t tell me where they went on my device. I don’t even know if the duplicates were removed when I reinstalled the app because IOS and adobe won’t allow me the access to that kind of quality of life. The brushes are the only appeal to this app currently because I use them on my PC. UPDATE:Brushes are still there and did not delete. I like to stay in control and organized so this really turns me away from the app. UPDATE 2: Wiped my CC folder. Reinstalled Sketch. Brushes still present, so they’re hidden in the app somehow

  • It needs some work Aug 14, 2020

    By _____🌇
    Overall it’s a good app and I like that it’s free but I have some things that are annoying and should be fixed. 1. It’s really annoying that you can’t blend anything which makes it pretty hard to draw people (and other things where you need to blend colors or make something fade) and 2. I hate how you can do the undo button just by sliding two fingers to the left because I’m always trying to zoom in or out and it just keeps undoing my last action. Is there a way to turn this off or get rid of it? It makes it super hard to draw in detail. 3. It would be nice to be able to zoom in more. You can already spoon in more but there was a picture I was coloring and it wouldn’t let me zoom in any more so I couldn’t do it in detail. I don’t mean to complain or anything because it’s actually a good app and it’s super cool how you can draw on your pictures (I’ve made some super cool ones) I would just like it if these things could be fixed. Thank you!!! 😁

  • Wonderful Horizon, but... Oct 27, 2017

    By Yacht Rocker
    This new suite of Adobe apps is another powerful tool to assist designers in broadening their capabilities at providing services that are in synch with today’s demands. Being able to create, edit and share professional quality designs from your phone is an asset and in today’s competitive market. Each of these apps are unique and integrates seamlessly with your Creative Cloud projects. The only issue I’ve had to date is dealing with some less than intuitive menus and the absolutely unnecessary amount of spam that gets tagged in to any design you share through texts... it borders on ridiculous. We don’t need to know in multiple different following messages who made the app, where you can get it, what it does, who it’s from, links to web pages.... on and on, all from sharing one picture. Clean that up and not spam the crap out of my contacts, with your ads forcefully being delivered through private messaging, and we have an almost perfect suite of tools!

  • Can’t open Non-Native PSD files. Dec 30, 2017

    By Somekinaking
    While this app in general is absolutely fantastic it doesn’t work well with the other adobe apps. You can import files from Creative Cloud, you can open psd files that did not start in Adobe Sketch despite being able to save Sketch’s files to psd. So if you wanted to move from your laptop to your iPad you could not and if you saved it from your laptop and try to open it back up in Sketch you could not. I would honestly give this a lower rating if it weren’t for the fact the user friendliness and other features were not amazing. It’s sad to see that other creators drawing apps can not only save in psd, open it, interact with adobe’s creative cloud and still offer all of sketch's features and more baffles me. I would love to continue using this app but the inability to crossover makes it a no go for me at the moment.

    Love the app but the fatal flaw is the inability to rotate your art. Drawing wide screen would help so much. If I could twist my art to be upright when I turn my phone sideways it would be perfect. I notice the function is available on some devices? But it's not on mine so until i see the feature added I have to leave my rating at 3 stars.

    This app is a disappointment to come from adobe. I have used other sketch apps and I expected a more robust smooth layout and easier sketching from you Adobe. YOU NEED TO GO BACK TO THE DRAWING BOARD WITH THIS. So many great features that are in both illustrator and photoshop software that could have been put in this app. But Adobe opted to give an app that seem to be thrown together. I have never been more frustrated sketching on an app. AND WHAT IS WITH THE NO ROTATING CANVAS.

  • Do NOT Download Mar 17, 2019

    By Ethereal92
    I am so livid at the moment. I used to have ProCreate on my iPad before it broke and decided to try my art on my phone. Procreate was almost $7 at the time, and without a job I didn’t have that kind of money. Instead, I downloaded Adobe Sketch. It was fine at first. Trashy brush options and little you could do to alter them in any way, yeah, but it got the job done. Until today. I’ve had this app for a while, a little over a year, and have had constant problems with it. None of them were as bad as this week, though. I started a project when I first downloaded this app, spent so much time and energy into working on it until it was almost, ALMOST perfect, and got off of the app about two weeks ago. I decided to jump back on and finish it up, save it to my device, and post it on my business page, when there was suddenly nothing. The project was there when I went to open it, but after a moment of loading, every layer I had open was blank. Empty. Nothing I could try to fix it worked. Several emails later and all they told me to do was exactly what I’d already done, until finally I just stopped receiving emails for support. Since then, other projects of mine have been slowly vanishing with no explanation and no way to fix it. Downloading this app is a waste of time and effort. Don’t do it. You’ll regret it.

  • Bluetooth stylus connect Aug 5, 2019

    By dersedreamer2
    I used to use this on my old iPad and I could connect my Adonit stylus to the app but now on my new iPad with the recent update the app just focuses on the Apple Pencil and completely removes the feature of connecting another stylus. I don’t get it, did Apple pay you guys to strip this feature for no reason or something? I can still use my stylus without connecting it but it doesn’t work right and now I don’t have an option for it to not detect my hand and the app undoes half of my strokes randomly. I would like to see the stylus connection feature back. As a long time subscriber to adobe creative cloud programs, I’m very disappointed and feel like I’ve wasted my money on a sellout brand.
