Love this!! But one major thing

Edit2: oct 15,2018 - I have csp ex on my Mac and had some animations I wanted to carry over to work on the iPad. The iPad version cannot handle all the features that the desktop has? So I couldn’t touch my file on the iPad... what a downer.. 3/5

Edit: so I found how to do it! Lol, wow, so I’ll share it in case you’re like me. You can go to file>import>from photo library. For some reason I overlooked that. So I changed my rating to 5/5

I use this program on my Mac as well, so I’m used to it. This is my main program to animate (I’m an animation student) so I’m so happy that I could animate just as well as on the desktop version!! There’s one major downfall to this and it is that I cannot open any files from the iPad’s “photos”! I want to be able to open up psd files that wasn’t initially created in csp. I’ve been playing around with it for awhile but I can’t seem to find a way to do that (if there is a way). I tried importing too but no luck. This is super important to me and if this feature were there, I would give this a 6 star if I could (so a 5 would suffice). I just love this so much! I don’t think $9 a month is unreasonable, but I also wish there was a year subscription like how some apps have! Thanks csp! I really hope this will be a feature in the near near future!! 4/5

I’ve given up on it

It’s very clear that Celsys has no interest in making Clip Studio work with the iOS file manager (the “Files” app). It doesn’t let me open from, or save directly to, iCloud Drive or any other cloud service, and I can’t even drag and drop my files in and out of the app. This is absurd and makes backing up a nightmare if I don’t want to use their cloud service, which I have no interest in doing because I like to keep all my work files in one place and I’m already paying for iCloud.

It also doesn’t want people to install custom brushes from any source other than their “assets” web site. It’s doable, but again, there’s no drag and drop functionality and I have to manually open each individual brush file and import into Clip Studio, which is a nightmare when you have a large collection of brushes.

This is just a port of the desktop app with some touch gestures thrown in. It was not really made with the iPad in mind, and it shows. So after a year of fighting with it to make it fit with my workflow, I’ve officially given up and canceled my subscription. I’m sticking with ProCreate.

Full-featured App

This app has nearly all of the same features as the desktop version so if you’re familiar with it then you’ll know what to expect from the app in terms of features (a lot!) I haven’t had any compatibility issues with CSP files that I created in the desktop version. My suspicion is that the iPad’s limited memory will be an issue for some projects but I’ve been able to work with fairly large images (e.g. 3000x3000 px) with around 30 layers with no problems on my 3rd gen iPad Pro with 4GB of memory. The app is very responsive and stable. I haven’t had any crashes and the only feature that seems sluggish is mesh transform. To be fair, this is sluggish on the desktop version as well. I’m not a fan of the subscription model (who is?) but since I _own_ the desktop version I won’t lose access to my creations like other subscription-based software. There are a lot of old reviews that complain about lack of file management. This is no longer a problem in the latest version of the app. The app will work with the Files app via drag-and-drop to import/export all of the different file types that CSP supports.
