    Excellent app. I'm a technical artist so find this very useful for conceptual work. There are a few things I hope the developers will be able to add. 1- Poseable faces. At the moment, we're stuck with a single expression. 2- The option to add clothing. And finally, I'd like to see perhaps a Sten, MP40, Kar98K and an M14 or M16 etc etc added. Lots of melee weapons but very thin on the ground with regards to WW2 or the Cold War. Overall though, one of the best apps in its class.

    Overall incredibly handy!! Little bit of a learning curve to get used to the spheres to adjust body parts. I’d love more advanced controls for the body type, though — at least an option to adjust the height, if not the weight as well. Slider controls for height and weight would be AMAZING! The ability to more finely pose the fingers would also be nice, as right now I use a second posing app for more nuanced hand positions.

    What's good: Complex poses can be achieved very quickly just by doing a few taps and drags. Basic options of body types and gender should satisfy most users. I haven't seen anything this easy on IOS or the Mac. What can improve: Adding a clothed version of the body will be very useful to me. Even if it's just a texture map applied to the body like it's done with the muscle overlay. Saving poses should not have a limit of 20. The whole concept of saving slots seems odd and feels like a Wii experience. I rather it save to iCloud so that I can switch from iPhone to iPad easily. Right now there's no way to export, import or output the final composite as an image. A strange omission since it limits the app's usefulness. I would love to export these poses as transparent PNGs that I can then import into Photoshop for composing. What I would to see aded: Animation! I would love to select two poses and have the app fill the steps in between and save as a movie or image sequence. This will make a great tool for illustrating some basic motion of the body.

    Perfect, masterfully designed app with so much thought put onto details. I could list a few but they are a lot and all of them are robust and unique, no gimmicks. To rate this app below 4 stars at its current state, one has to be either too impatient to discover the intuitive posing/rotations layout or simply halfwitted... Thanks, such a great utility for Arts.

    I know 3 stars is very harsh but i find the adjustment to pose the mannequin is too hard and time consuming. I need each part to move by touch and drag, rather than a tap2 button. 2nd, it will be great to have an already posed mannequin that have the neccessary or common pose like run, jump, etc, cause i feel the random pose is too random. The app draw modes already complete but if need to add more, adding planes mode would be an extra. The muscle mode need a fix and more 3d or coloured.

    ' I’ve used this tool since 1.0. Literally since the very start. You have always made it better and better every year. So much right now, it’s awesome. Truly one of the most powerful tools for an artist. What would really seal the deal for me is having the ability to do facial expressions, and with the newly introduced props/inventory if we can have the ability to fully suit the figure in armor or whatever else would be amazing. Would love to see the ability to add other 3D objects to the scene like buildings, trees, mountains, shapes, cars/motorcycles that the figure can go into or on, ships, houses, doorways etc that the user can tweak to build an entire scene. Something I would still love to see, is a version of the model with head length breakdown of measurements of the entire figure. I would also love to see the box variation tweaked a bit to better morph around the model itself. Or maybe just have the boxes alone in a more gesture style way. Also the gesture line is a bit funky. I love how the head Has the proportion lines, but the gesture blocks the head, so I think this needs to be fixed. I think the gesture function should be reworked to be more curvy and maybe just be the gesture itself but in a more drawn look way. Then I think there should be a version of the model like how it is in gesture with the measurements not only on the head but also for the entire body. From height to arm length, legs, etc. Also a big one. The entire background should be able to be set to a specific color, there shouldn’t be the box area that’s white with the rest of the background another color. It should be unified as one. This is just very powerful. The time it takes trying to scour the internet for reference material is daunting. This makes life a lot easier, and I can still see it being even more powerful than it already is. If we can just get it to that extra level with the things I’m asking for, it can be the go to.

    Okay granted I started in late 2008. But this app is easily one of, if not the coolest apps I’ve ever used. I thought I wasn’t going to have any space for it with about 25 apps already on my iPhone, but so far no issues. I got it specifically because I tried a popular photo database app and that lead me to needing more control. I’m drawing a floating character and photography underwater of free divers can be extremely dangerous for the free diver. It has so many more useful features than I thought I was getting. I’m still learning more about it. However it’s incredible how far we’ve come. I was literally looking through a book of poses before and got frustrated. I can control light, angle, angle of the light, perspective, body types, skeletal and muscular layers, outlines, way more posing options than the wooden figures, skin tone options, hand objects and hair. Like everything that’s ever existed, there’s room not necessarily for improvement but additional features. It would be cool to see all points of articulation at once. As well as the ability to reset a point of articulation back to original form and a mode where it won’t bend warp to unnatural poses. You can twist an arm around continuously and the muscles/skin will warp like a cartoon. If I had the money, I’d invest in this. I’m not saying going to college and having models pose was bad. It was fun. You can’t however have naked models pose for you on a plane/in the car/at lunch/on your break because you want draw a woman flying like Captain Marvel or a man standing menacingly like Batman…unless you’re insanely rich or have very dedicated friends.

    Being able to pose the model is great! But it does take a bit of time (just maybe minutes, nothing drastic) to slowly rotate all the limbs the way you want, you have to select the part first then rotate on each axis. It therefore would be good to have a library of preset poses like arms crossed, running etc. Without a preset library, the app gets 5 stars because it's easy, intuitive and the five different models plus muscle map for each gender are great. With a preset library, no other figure drawing app would ever compete ever! I'm thinking of getting another app for just some preset pose photos for when I want to browse through for ideas or practice, and don't have a complex pose in mind. This app could even charge more if it had such a pose library, and thus become a combination of all the best features of all pose reference apps! And it would really just take some time to build a few dozen poses and include them, not much technical work just grunt work. I could do it even.

    It has nice handy features like skeleton view and perspective tools, but the actual act of posing a model is INCREDIBLY time consuming. I'd have kept it as pose software if it was tap and drag functions, instead you slowly adjust each axis of rotation using a sidebar.
  • Shoulders Are Strange Apr 22, 2021

    By CLiFF G.
    On a real human body, if you raise one arm, that should be higher than the one that is is not raised. On this model, the opposite occurs.

    By Chaostc8 Tribulations
    for $7 could be better, could have more options and easier to use tools along with finger movement and toe movement and facial expressions, paid for it and i guess my expectations had probably been to high....hopefully there will be updates.
  • Jan 5, 2020

    By Whetsit Tuya
    It would be significantly better if it had a button to mirror the pose of one side of the body to the other, it would make posing 50% faster/easier/better. The only issue it has is that it takes an extremely long time to pose the body compared to other software. The app was always of poor quality until its steady stream of updates, if it ever has an update that adds in the mirror function I'll increase my rating to 5 stars, for now ArtPose Pro is probably a better substitute for this app, since it has extremely fast posing, there's also XNALara.

    It's a decent pose maker, but it's definitely not worth the money. Plenty of free pose makes offer multiple figures at once as well as props. Not only that, but this maker has rather disproportionate figures and unrealistic movements of certain parts. It's very difficult to get a desired pose. I wouldn't waste money on this, find a better one for free.
  • It's OK... Dec 9, 2015

    By wonkiefinger
    For the most part, it's a decent app. I don't love it, but I don't hate it either. Like most of the reviewers this app really needs an 'undo' command. I'm surprised this is not an option. Also, it does take a bit to get used to the controls. Even when you get accustomed to the controls, be careful to pay close attention to which body part you are moving. I found on occasions that somehow I inadvertently moved another body part without noticing. This is due to the controls. If you move your fingers too far up or down when posing, you may have accidentally selected another body part without knowing. For this I would suggest that the developer create an option that the selected body part have some sort of indication/highlight to let the user know which body part is in use.
  • A Lot to improve... Mar 9, 2013

    By anto1980
    Nice idea, but to be used at a professional level it needs multiple things to be improved. 1)UNDO (not only a total reset) 2)the possibility of moving at least 2 muscles at the same time. (Like the arms or legs) 3) the possibility of lowering the entire body from the hip, right now there's no way to select and drag down. 4) The rotation buttons left to right, up to down should have different icons and have the degree of rotation next to it. Unfortunately so far it cant be used for any kind of 3d work because it s not precise. Beside that, we needed this app so badly, thank u for making it... :)
  • needs overhaul; great concept Jan 16, 2013

    By brenna bear
    I love the features of this app. UI is pretty good. I would love to be able to use this for more than 2 minutes without it freezing. Please, please fix this app, because it is what I am looking for in a posing reference tool. If you can work out the major bugs, I'll update to a five star review.
  • Huge Issues Oct 2, 2015

    By TheExuberentGirl
    I love this app, but the issues in it are driving me insane. 1. Posing even with simple movements can extremely distort the figure, leaving me unable to reference what I need. 2. The interface jostles around when I tap with even one finger. 3. My saved poses are shifted greatly when I reopen them, and it is difficult to try and fix the pose to do what I need. These need to be addressed for the app to work as I expect it to

Lots of melee weapons but very thin on the ground with regards to WW2 or the Cold War. Overall though, one of the best apps in its class.

  • Absolutely FANTASTIC! Jan 25, 2016

    By dMore1
    For the first time, in a very long time, an APP has exceeded all my expectations. I mean it. 99% of the time the APPs I purchase promise the world and don't deliver. This APP is easier to use, has more features, and does more than I ever thought it would for the price. Honestly, were this a piece of computer software it would be a $50+ investment. I love it already and I've only had it for 30 minutes. I needed an application that would let me pose the human form for inclusion in my Power Point slides--and POSER TOOL does that. You pose the form, then touch the camera icon and it snaps a screen shot of your posed form, and you take it from there. If it saved the files with a transparent background, that would be a nice feature. But I can use photoshop to do that until the developer makes the former a possibility. GREAT APP!
  • Realistic and extremely useful Oct 7, 2018

    By 2towalk2toride
    I had downloaded a few other pose apps which I liked fine. I downloaded this just out of curiosity, and am very pleased. The (Caucasian only) skin coloring and shading, ability to use fat, skinny or older models is cool, and once you get the hang of which buttons move which body parts which direction, it’s easy. Unlike ArtPose, there’s no preset poses to start from, both male and female models start standing in a T form (arms out straight) but I’ve gotten them into natural, realistic positions. I used to draw from live models, but this is actually better because they won’t move or fidget, the lighting won’t shift and it doesn’t charge by the hour. I am an artist and oil paint; it’s nice to not have to find a model to use to get exactly the position and perspective I want. *Highly* recommend.

    This the app to have if you're a serious art student or illustrator. An excellent way to setup a quick pose and get all of the output needed for useful reference. Mannequins, silhouettes, perspective guide, muscle and bone landmarks, even major lines and gesture. I've read some critical reviews about lack of backgrounds, props, and other embellishments. All of that is clutter and cheap nonsense. What you need is great anatomical pose reference. This is it. Worth way more than 99 cents.

  • Good, could use more fine-tuned options Feb 6, 2021

    By StKayden
    Overall incredibly handy!! Little bit of a learning curve to get used to the spheres to adjust body parts. I’d love more advanced controls for the body type, though — at least an option to adjust the height, if not the weight as well. Slider controls for height and weight would be AMAZING! The ability to more finely pose the fingers would also be nice, as right now I use a second posing app for more nuanced hand positions.

    What's good: Complex poses can be achieved very quickly just by doing a few taps and drags. Basic options of body types and gender should satisfy most users. I haven't seen anything this easy on IOS or the Mac. What can improve: Adding a clothed version of the body will be very useful to me. Even if it's just a texture map applied to the body like it's done with the muscle overlay. Saving poses should not have a limit of 20. The whole concept of saving slots seems odd and feels like a Wii experience. I rather it save to iCloud so that I can switch from iPhone to iPad easily. Right now there's no way to export, import or output the final composite as an image. A strange omission since it limits the app's usefulness. I would love to export these poses as transparent PNGs that I can then import into Photoshop for composing. What I would to see aded: Animation! I would love to select two poses and have the app fill the steps in between and save as a movie or image sequence. This will make a great tool for illustrating some basic motion of the body.

Within an hour of downloading the app (and finally watching the video tutorial) I was able to pose the figure in some wonderful ways. I attended a life-drawing session earlier in the day and was able to pose the app model just like the live model earlier and imitate the light so I could continue to work out a sketch. Very cool!!! The ability to turn and manipulate the model is wonderful. Being able to control light source and intensity is absolutely amazing! The added benefits to learning life drawing from the muscle overly, mannequin, life drawing will advance any student's skills quickly if they apply themselves. It isn't perfect. It freezes up occasionally. You can save the pose you are working on and open it back up after closing the app - but you can't save a pose to your camera roll or export it. For now it seems to be one-at-a-time posing. I'm giving it four stars even with those two major drawbacks because I see very great things happening with this app if it is worked on and updated!

    Only downloaded a few hours ago, but seems a pretty handy tool. Couple of points, it would be nice to have the option to ground the model so you can decide the points e.g. feet or knees etc are the points that are locked to the floor. This would speed up posing the model. Normal physical limitations options, to stop backwards feet, head facing the wrong way etc. And one last thing, it would be great if there was a library where users could share poses or the developer shared starter poses.

    great app for art. I like everything about so far but gave it 4 stars because I feel like it needs the ability to toggle outlines on/off in certain view modes like "skeleton". it would be nice to have the option to see just the skeleton or skeleton with body outline. I also feel like the currently selected body part should change color, light up, or marquee so the user can quickly notice selected area without having to look at the indicator on the upper left corner. just my thoughts

    This app is definitely worth a try for anyone learning to draw the human figure. You can manipulate the models into almost any pose you want, and there are even options to change the body type (ex. A heavyset model or a skinny one). I say almost any because when you twist the arms or legs in certain positions the joints start to cut away. It's a bit annoying, but easy enough to fix when you draw it. I was also kind of hoping there would be a few basic presets you could edit, but there aren't any. That way you wouldn't always have to start from scratch. These are just minor details though. Overall this app is a fantastic reference tool, and I would recommend it to anyone.
  • Very helpful app Nov 18, 2017

    By zzzzzzora
    I don’t usually write review for my purchase, but this time I have to say, it’s a good tool! It’s quite flexible to do a variety of gestures, and lighting system is very helpful too! And I believe this app can be even better! I click on some body parts and move them by mistake quite often, it will be awesome if there’s an undo button so I can move it back quickly. There isn’t any numeric value aside to indicate how many angles I turn the body parts, so it slows down my process to adjust the gesture. There are groups of arrows for different directions on the bottom left for you to move the selected body parts. Awesome! But I think it will be more user friendIy if they tell which one does the front-back, which one does the left-right and so on. The arrow icons right now all look the same and that might cause confusion. It took me a while to click on the right one to move to the correct direction in my mind. I would be very appreciated if they can be the next update! Overall, it’s a great app to purchase!
  • Great app with loads of potential Jan 28, 2013

    By TommyJTX
    I was very excited to find this application. While not perfect, it is extremely helpful. It is very responsive and easy to use, even on the iPhone. Probably the biggest thing that would be helpful in future updates would be the addition of the anterior / posterior / and lateral flexion / extension of the pelvis. Rotation seems to be covered with rotation of the trunk. Some of the muscle deformities at the could also be improved at the extremes of ROM. Try putting the figure into hip flexion and the distortion becomes evident. Put the upper extremity into a true archers stance and the forearm withers away. But I am being picky here- this is intended as Constructive criticism for the author of the program. I can't imagine what the programming behind this must be like. Anyone with an artistic imagination can correct those deficiencies easily enough while drawing. The concept of this program is amazing and it is executed very well. I look forward to future updates and what the author has in store for this excellent program! Well worth the price!
  • Fantastic app that has lots of potential to be even better Jul 17, 2013

    Great manipulation control of just about every aspect of the body you'd want to move. Really top notch attention to manipulation detail. Definitely allows you to create a sense of realism with the figures. Areas where it could improve have been mentioned below. I like the suggestion for individual slider controls for each body part rather than the joystick controls. Would also say that a button to reset individual parts to default position (sometimes you can get lost when trying to correct) would save users from having to reset full figure. An option to save a pose to camera roll is needed. The rotation/pan controls to move around figure could also use some taming as they're rather jumpy. Additional skins (skeletal/mannequin) would be great too but not necessary. Happy with the existing skins so not top priority for me right now. Add camera roll save and tune the rotate/pan controls and this is definitely a 5 star app. Great work.

    I know 3 stars is very harsh but i find the adjustment to pose the mannequin is too hard and time consuming. I need each part to move by touch and drag, rather than a tap2 button. 2nd, it will be great to have an already posed mannequin that have the neccessary or common pose like run, jump, etc, cause i feel the random pose is too random. The app draw modes already complete but if need to add more, adding planes mode would be an extra. The muscle mode need a fix and more 3d or coloured.
  • Not bad, could be better Mar 26, 2013

    By Lame without sound
    It's a okay start, however the app is missing a lot of useful things I was kind of surprised I did not see. It needs: - A better explanation on the button directions - Undo and Re-Do buttons. - Perspective change, with separate camera movement - More body changes like the ability to add fat or reduce fat to body areas like breasts, legs, stomach, and arms. - The ability to save it as a .jpeg or .png - The ability to change background colors - Cut and Paste feature like saving as a raster or vector - Finger Nails - Facial movements like eyebrows, and mouth would be nice - Movable Shadow for figure would be good. - The ability to make a child by reducing the length of Arms and Legs would be nice. When I'm using it, it's very easy to move the wrong direction and screw up the entire pose. It won't rotate in the one direction I need it to from "side to side". I didn't like the fact I couldn't change size of the breasts like for a fairy or child reference. Beyond those fixes it not terrible, but it is very limited. I'm glad someone has made the app because it is helpful and I appreciate the time it took to create the app, however for an artists like myself, it limits my personal options.

    love the app, it runs great, the functionality is great. but. it no longer saves the image 'screenshot'. very frustrating.
  • Save seems backwards Apr 9, 2016

    By Teemflmngo
    The save button seems counter intuitive. I don't know how many times now that I have had to redo a pose because I have hit the wrong directional arrow. I do enough web work that I read the up arrow as save and the down arrow as download a pose from memory into the workspace. Noooo! It really pisses me off that the pose is completely lost and I have to start all over. Even if there would be an undo, that would be better, but one touch and all my work is gone. Other than that, the app is fine. But that one UX issue is annoying as hell.
  • One Major Fault.... BEWARE Apr 17, 2014

    By Fulene
    This is a very fun, useful, and instructive app but I absolutely cannot figure out the load/ save feature. I have contacted the developer who insists it is my problem. He tells me to watch the video over and over. You have to go to his website to even see the video. This does not help! I believe it is a design problem. I hope this feature will be made more intuitive and easier to use. In the meantime it's a fun and useful app if you don't mind not saving the poses.
  • Just okay. Mar 24, 2019

    By leolion444€#$
    The app is easy to use and that’s good it has a lot of motion in the joints I feel, however the movement is a little slow to me and I feel like a few more options would be cool. My thing is there are other apps with more that are free or cost less so I think this one could use some improvement such as being able to change the color of the skin tone for instance. Over all a good app but it needs to be at a lower price point.
  • Has issues Dec 1, 2012

    By Ev1949
    This is a relatively useful app but it needs a better save, file and library function. One major issue is that the active screen area for manipulating a body area is too small and your finger will overlap the screen area triggering motion of the entire figure. This results in a very annoying problem of your moving the figure when it needs to stay still and you attempt to alter the position of a body part.
  • A bit awkward Nov 26, 2013

    By sculptingman
    It's okay... I mean... It will pose a figure pretty much. But it desperately needs undo and redo buttons... And a clearer interface for saving a loading... I have lost work because the icons are confusing, not labeled, and have identical appearance so you can't tell if you are about to delete everything you did with no hope of recovery... And WHY is this the ONE app that doesn't automatically save the file? Needs toe posing support.
  • Ok Oct 4, 2013

    By McReviewyPants1
    The posing is a little limiting. Wish you could drag limbs into place by touch. Or, if dials are absolutely needed, there should be a way to make it react to a centre of gravity somehow. Also, the female body's shoulders are a little broad, buff, and rigid. All the 3d pose apps in the App Store have this problem, but in real life..women are more petite can drop their shoulders. Someone else mentioned that there should be a few sample poses to work from and they're right. It would really help.
  • Good, was expecting it to be a bit more Poser-like... May 13, 2014

    By Jack the Giant Killer
    I thought it would be a bit less tedious to pose things if you could actually touch and maneuver poses via gestures and not just dialing things up and down. IK would be needed, but it would really help expedite usage. Really needs a preset pose library and image export options.

    By Luthien
    It has nice handy features like skeleton view and perspective tools, but the actual act of posing a model is INCREDIBLY time consuming. I'd have kept it as pose software if it was tap and drag functions, instead you slowly adjust each axis of rotation using a sidebar.
  • Shoulders Are Strange Apr 22, 2021

    By CLiFF G.
    On a real human body, if you raise one arm, that should be higher than the one that is is not raised. On this model, the opposite occurs.
  • Jan 5, 2020

    By Whetsit Tuya
    It would be significantly better if it had a button to mirror the pose of one side of the body to the other, it would make posing 50% faster/easier/better. The only issue it has is that it takes an extremely long time to pose the body compared to other software. The app was always of poor quality until its steady stream of updates, if it ever has an update that adds in the mirror function I'll increase my rating to 5 stars, for now ArtPose Pro is probably a better substitute for this app, since it has extremely fast posing, there's also XNALara.

    It's a decent pose maker, but it's definitely not worth the money. Plenty of free pose makes offer multiple figures at once as well as props. Not only that, but this maker has rather disproportionate figures and unrealistic movements of certain parts. It's very difficult to get a desired pose. I wouldn't waste money on this, find a better one for free.
  • It's OK... Dec 9, 2015

    By wonkiefinger
    For the most part, it's a decent app. I don't love it, but I don't hate it either. Like most of the reviewers this app really needs an 'undo' command. I'm surprised this is not an option. Also, it does take a bit to get used to the controls. Even when you get accustomed to the controls, be careful to pay close attention to which body part you are moving. I found on occasions that somehow I inadvertently moved another body part without noticing. This is due to the controls. If you move your fingers too far up or down when posing, you may have accidentally selected another body part without knowing. For this I would suggest that the developer create an option that the selected body part have some sort of indication/highlight to let the user know which body part is in use.
  • A Lot to improve... Mar 9, 2013

    By anto1980
    Nice idea, but to be used at a professional level it needs multiple things to be improved. 1)UNDO (not only a total reset) 2)the possibility of moving at least 2 muscles at the same time. (Like the arms or legs) 3) the possibility of lowering the entire body from the hip, right now there's no way to select and drag down. 4) The rotation buttons left to right, up to down should have different icons and have the degree of rotation next to it. Unfortunately so far it cant be used for any kind of 3d work because it s not precise. Beside that, we needed this app so badly, thank u for making it... :)
  • needs overhaul; great concept Jan 16, 2013

    By brenna bear
    I love the features of this app. UI is pretty good. I would love to be able to use this for more than 2 minutes without it freezing. Please, please fix this app, because it is what I am looking for in a posing reference tool. If you can work out the major bugs, I'll update to a five star review.
  • Huge Issues Oct 2, 2015

    By TheExuberentGirl
    I love this app, but the issues in it are driving me insane. 1. Posing even with simple movements can extremely distort the figure, leaving me unable to reference what I need. 2. The interface jostles around when I tap with even one finger. 3. My saved poses are shifted greatly when I reopen them, and it is difficult to try and fix the pose to do what I need. These need to be addressed for the app to work as I expect it to
  • Mar 9, 2021

    By Chaostc8 Tribulations
    for $7 could be better, could have more options and easier to use tools along with finger movement and toe movement and facial expressions, paid for it and i guess my expectations had probably been to high....hopefully there will be updates.

    Don’t waste your money! This app is very slow. Get Magic Poser instead. I also contacted the developer and he is not responding. I want my money back.
