  • This app it amazing Apr 22, 2019

    By raeganbbbbbbbbbb
    I just got it this app and it’s still amazing. It helps me make drawings for my family my friends and myself. I like to screenshot them or for them to Instagram or Snapchat. The one thing that I do recommend if you have the iPad. You might want to get the touch screen pen. It’s a lot easier to use the pen in my experience. You can edit things. You can sketch things you can do little things. You can take your own photos or something that you screenshot it and you can edit it or like pretty much just well you can redo everything it’s a lot easier. To use then like if you wanted to get something on Instagram is a lot easier than that. You can forward it to a computer and you can print them out you can send them to your friends to brag it’s nice. I found about this app from one of my friends she got it and we both love it. I definitely recommend this app to any people who love to draw. You can use it on airplanes. I especially love to use on airplanes because it distracts me more and him it doesn’t need Wi-Fi that much it doesn’t take that much data if you have to use it for that it’s definitely one my favorite apps for drawing coloring or even just doodling. I give this app a five star review I think that this app could help anyone who is terrible at drawing learn to just grow and drying experiences are used to be really bad until I got this app and it change my life. This app is amazing!! 😁😍

    Like literally , what did i do before I had this app. Awkwardly text people while in line at the grocery mart? Maybe or I was just pretending I had someone to text st that moment tonward off conversation of strangers. It was harmless. Mownthis app has changed everything. I ise this for marking up pictures plans and schematics ( I’m a general contractor) I take a meme that almost had it and make it more fitting , lately I’ve been taking pictures of my sketches aNd makjngnthem better and with color:). I’ve noticed there is a downside and that is i am literally constantly running late and behind schedule. I’ll tell my wife I’ll be ready for dinner in five minutes , go sit down and 45 minutes rengone just like that. When I use the commode I’m inthere so long I think I make Lowe’s and Home Depot managers nervous. I wouldn’t be surprised if now I’m he guy that all the employees make bets on how long I’m going to be today. TLDR::::great app. Been wondering why i couldn’t find this sooner but its here now thank GOD. Free version withholds goodnstuff that inwish I had access to but they ask way to much money. I would pay the $2.99. For the app. Unfortunately, THEY ASK FIR THAT PAYMENT EVERY WEEK

  • Great app, some glitches. Mar 26, 2020

    By Samyob
    This app is great overall, but there are a few minor glitches. The other reviews exaggerate these glitches, saying it makes you loose your artwork, or you have to pay to use it. That’s not true. Just downloaded it a few days ago, but was worried after reading all the reviews. It’s a great app, and yes it does want you to subscribe to a monthly plan. But there are plenty of free options on it, and the monthly plan won’t really give you anything more than coloring sheets. The sketch tools work great and I’ve made some of my best works of art on this. But if I’m in the middle of a drawing, the app closes by itself sometimes. Luckily it always saves my artwork so I can continue. It’s just annoying when it closes but unlike many reviews say, it does save your artwork. The other reviews also say you can’t exit when it wants you to buy the plan, and they had to close the app because you can’t use it unless you buy it. You can easily hit the X at the top right hand corner and exit. I definitely recommend this app for a free sketch app. Works great!

  • Great app but... Aug 7, 2019

    By LuckyButts
    I have to say it’s a great app. It’s a lot better than other apps I have had before. I love how you can chose from kids, sketch, coloring, doodle, and photo desks. That makes the app fun for all ages and all different art. Some things that I don’t like about the app is how in photo desk you can’t draw on the photo you upload. You can put stickers and filters on it but you can’t draw. The solution for me was going to sketch desk and putting in a photo so that I could draw on it. I had worked all morning on a drawing and then the app just went blank and closed out. When I went back into the app my drawing was gone! I tried again and it took the rest of my afternoon and then it closed out again! My drawing had been finished and deleted 2 times already and I was about to quit. Now I always have to save it every couple of minutes so that it doesn’t get deleted again. Otherwise, this is an amazing app and I highly recommend it! You are going to love it! Thanks for reading!

  • Well done May 15, 2020

    By Artsy Mel's
    Although I would recommend doing it on a tablet and with a drawing pen it is a good app. It is $4.99 for premium, but you can get all the supply’s you need for free. That other stuff is extra stickers and stuff, I believe it is something that will help start off your knowledge on digital art. But after that I suggest Procreate, this app does not have as many tools but for artists like myself it will start you off nicely. It also works very well if your kids love coloring of drawing, it has several options of coloring pages and colors. I believe their prices are better compared to other drawing apps, my least favorite part is when the ads for premium come up which happens often. I would not recommend using an iPhone to download because of the lack of space and control you have when on an iPhone. It would work better on an iPad, but overall it is a pretty good app.

  • Great app but i need some answers Jan 22, 2019

    By Hampeach
    So i really like this app. The tools are easy to use and even though some things cost money, i don't care. But i have some questions. First, i wanted to order some stickers of the pic of Arianna grande I edited for my daughter so she could put them on her chrome book. So how do you edit it so the stickers show the words on it and stuff like so you can crop it cause i did not see any option for that. Also, i was to scared to try this cause i did not wanna get my card hacked but when you order does it say like when it will be arriving? If so thats good cause I’m always worried that it will come like in 5 months instead of like 3 days. Lastly, if you get a custom shirt or mug, how do you wash them? I wanted to get a mug but i was scared that when i washed it, the picture would fade and i would be disappointed. So, thats it great app!

  • Download! Mar 25, 2018

    By Athena Dentist
    I like this app. It looks formal, and is, for the most part, easy to use. The tools are extremely well done and very effective. It can zoom in quite far, and stores so much! It’s good, I’ve drawn over fifty pieces of art on it, but I do have a few issues. Firstly, the lines get blurry when you zoom in and out too many times and makes the picture look smudged. Also, the undo button doesn’t seem to always work, and I have to repeatedly tap it which in the end just creates more little dots that I then also have to undo. Another thing would be the text option, the words are hard to move and zoom in and out because the app gets the word box confused with the actual screen sometimes. My last and biggest concern would be option box. It doesn’t go down at all or seem to have a slide down tab. That makes it hard to color, write, or draw in the space. So try and make that have a slide down tab. Otherwise, it’s amazing! You did a good job creating it!

  • READ THIS BEFORE YOU GET THIS APP Apr 13, 2019

    By 123ava 123
    OK so I got this app so that I could use it for on the bus when I’m going to school right and I got another OK it’s gonna be cool and then I got on and it’s like they want to Go premium and yeah cheap I don’t know but I can’t use it because 13 years I don’t have that family I don’t use the bank yet and I’m not gonna ask her mom if I if she’ll pay you like seven dollars and something a month for $14 a month so when you go to the coloring desk are you coming in when you can only use the ones without a crown on that because if they have a crown on them you have to pay for them there’s only like two or three The doodle desk is the same as the sketch desks that they just have different types of brushes and stuff not all of them are open because you have to pay for them I have an export all the best. But like I said you have to be paying for some of them without using them so that makes me kind of sad.

  • Crashing May 29, 2019

    By Msbcvpm
    I am fourteen years old and can’t draw for my life and then my Mom (Who is my bff) got me this app. I am IN LOVE with how m@ny different tools there are for coloring and drawing, but the one thing I have noticed is that I will open the app, and then seconds or minutes later I will do something un-noticed and the app will crash and not save my work. Now it may not even be the app. It may be the fact that my IPad is old and I got it in like first to third grade, (Can’t remember which grade specifically) but it’s really annoying because I was working on a painting slash picture for a school project on this app as well and went to go tap “Save and quit” when the app suddenly crashed and lost ALL my progress. The sad thing is, i am NOT creative nor can I do work quickly do it took me literally HOURS to do and then it got crashed saving nothing and the project was due the next day. If it is the app, please try and fix it. Thank you!

  • All around eh. Jul 29, 2020

    By Wave_One
    I mean this app is great for getting things down and all, but when it comes to wanting to make something that you are happy with and you want to show your friends it’s not the greatest in any way. First of all, there is a free trial. Alright, expected that. The marker brush (only one I use cause it fits my art style the best) is basically glitched. When I draw a line it most of the time has a bit at the start chipped off of it. The zooming mechanics are fine, but the undo button is a bit short lived. I would like it to have more actions saved so you can undo farther. But my biggest problem of all is the crash. I spent a lot of time (for me) on a drawing I was really happy with and wanted to show people. I was almost done, smoothing out the lines that stuck out (and the marker glitch I mentioned earlier), when blip! It crashed, and I lost everything. That was the last straw for me. Oh! I almost forgot! The eye dropper. It’s pay to use. Really? I am on an iPhone 10 with iOS 13.5.1.

  • Great Game for New Artists, But... Jan 4, 2020

    By JulzieToast
    This is a Awesome game for starters in the world of art. I would highly recommend it to new, and professionals (or at least if you call yourself a professional) artists. A few concerns though... There is a problem when I use the pencil. I honestly don’t know if it’s a problem, but every few minutes, although I down see it, my drawings start to smear. But when I draw multiple characters, it’s like only a few smear, and I’m getting confused. I am a Warrior Cat Reader, and I like to create my own characters using the pen and pencil. Honestly, this smearing is pretty bad, and I have no idea if it’s just me or if it’s one of the items I used to do this. I’ve seen a review like this where they mentioned it smearing and getting blurry over time. I think that’s what this is. I usually use the sketch desk, maybe it’s just this station? I honestly have no idea. I hope none of you have any of these problems when creating your beautiful art.❤️

  • Good...could be better Oct 23, 2019

    By RickPB1960
    I love the app, but it can be limiting and often frustrating. It could stand to improve by having a wider set of drawing utensils and allowing them to be modified. The blending tool, for example, is essentially a blur tool that’s too ‘thick’ to really be used in finer or smaller details. The biggest problem with the app is that you can’t get crisp definition or create great texture. Things like skin, tree leaves or bark end up looking flat and artificial. The app may be desirable for landscapes, but it’s certainly not suited for closeups. Even if you could create texture the app distorts the image after its been closed (it looks ‘pixelated’) so you have to try to get as much done in a single sitting, which again is very limiting. Having said that, the app is very accessible, fun and once you understand how each tool works it’s fairly straightforward and consistent. And it’s free, which really makes it worthwhile.

    Each time I press the undo button things get blurry and I think the paint can is broken Because sometimes when I use it it gets everywhere which is something that I don’t like! I might get a new. Drawing app soon because of this glitch and you never fixed it even though you said you would!! can’t I just draw my original characters without things getting blurry and looking like crap I constantly have to redo the lines just to make it not look blurry!!! I don’t like this app like I said he said he would fix it but you didn’t 😡😡😡😡 and last of all drawing games are not supposed to be glitchy or kick me out! They’re supposed to do the exact opposite of those things I am 10 and I can spot things like adults can that’s why I gave this three stars the end! If you don’t like blurry things then don’t get this!

  • Makes everything really blurry May 25, 2020

    By happy_cactus🌵
    When I am drawing, I find that whenever I make a new line, it always blurs previous ones I have made. In the end, the really new lines I have made are okay (still pretty pixelated, but better) while the parts of the drawing I had made previously were barely visible because of how blurry they were. This happens too when I might have come back to a drawing after taking a break. Overall I find drawing desk a bit disappointing. Along with the many bugs, I find it overly simple. There are barely any tools to use, and to be honest they aren’t very realistic. Don’t get me started on the blending tool too. It only lets you blend really big areas and makes weird squares and lines while making the area you are blending pretty pixelated. It’s kind of a mess. Also, it would be nice if the layers weren’t blocked by the pay wall of 4 dollars a week. I know that you need to make money, however layers are a COMPLETE NECESSITY to drawing digitally. I appreciate the effort you put into this app, but I think I’m going to search for other free ones.

  • Fun, until... Aug 27, 2020

    By Little LizaMae
    This is an awesome app, but I am too young to have to pay for apps, and my parents don&#39;t want me to have a bunch of games on my phone to pay for, and I get bored a lot. So I figured I could get a drawing app. But you can’t do very much of anything on it unless you get the premium version ( which costs money). You can only use half the tools on the sketch pad, and on the coloring part, you can only get one free page every 24 hours. And, of course, you can’t color on it after the 24 hours is complete. I am not going to finish a whole page ( because they are big and time consuming, but fun) in 24 hours. So now most of my pages are quarter or half done, and that kinda bothers me. So overall ok, but it would be a lot better if you just get the premium if you can, or don’t waste your time. And don’t you think they would tell you that you have to pay for the good version before you download it? ( I thought it was the good version, but a lot of the reviews who bought it say otherwise)

  • Garbage app, horrendously useless, Any good review here is a fake review. No way there’s good ones. Sep 20, 2020

    By JaredChamp24
    The second you let you pencil off the screen, that gigantic side bar appears and block everything on the left 1/4 of the screen, its debilitating, horrendous, and annoying. That means that 1/4 of the screen is completely useless, there’s no option to take that MASSIVE sidebar of gimmicky garbage off the screen, did anyone competent take place in making this app? If you’re fine tuning something on that side of the screen, the second you take the pencil off the screen, it re-appears, and it makes you accidentally change to a different tool and it screws everything up, its outrageously asinine. Another note: It really saddens me that App Store reviews are fake, and have fake ratings, you’ll see the worst app in the world and somehow it’ll have 5 stars, or sometimes you’ll look at the actual reviews and they’re all 1-2 stars, but at the top is says 5 stars and have all these “aWaRds” or “aPp oF tHe cEntuRy” Reviews and ratings are bull, because garbage apps can buy 4-5 star reviews, very sad. Rant over, I’m just sick of garbage apps, and they have 5 stars, people need to be held accountable in todays world.

  • Too many problems May 27, 2020

    By K.A.W.M
    By “too many problems” I’m not talking about the coding itself, but rather, things I find annoying. I have to draw with my finger, since my IPad is incompatible with the Apple Pencil. Because of this, I expect drawing apps on the IPad Air 2 to have some sort of stabilizer as do many desktop drawing websites(like photoshop), but there isn’t one, and, many times, my line work looks worse than normal. Not to mention that there’s a paywall overtop the layers, and, as a broke 15 year-old, I HATE that. I have another drawing app on my IPad, and I only downloaded this one to do sort of like a comparison video about the two apps, but now I’m considering deleting the app altogether. The other drawing app has no paywall on CRITICAL PORTIONS of the app, and when you want a specific type of brush that they have, all you have to do is watch an add, then you can freely use all of the brushes for 18hours. The app I’m talking about is IBIS paint X. There is a version that you pay for, and that just removes the adds and gives you access to more assets in the “material” section. IBIS paint is WAYYYY better than this app. To whoever’s reading this: If your as broke as me, then don’t get this app, just get IBIS paint X.
