Ratings and Reviews
Best App you'll use!
Dear readers and future costumers,
As a reviewer and rater I rate this five stars. First it's amazing! You can make pretty artwork and honestly it makes you artwork look likes it's about to go in the gallery. Second, there is a sketches community so you can look at others beautiful artwork. You can make folders for your work! It's only my first day and I have made ten beautiful bold drawings! Third, they help you use tools such as watercolor, paint brush, and much more by creating videos for the tutorials. They feature other apps which I think is brilliant. Fourth, there are fun daily activities you can draw! For me I'm not much of a artist but now I look like a masterpiece artist. This is why I named this review the best app you'll ever use! Thanks for your service and stay safe! I love sharing artwork with the nation! Also, they now let you have a stylist pen you can buy and draw with for the app! It's amazing! Buy this! I'm not much of a drawer but this is the best app ever and it makes me look like a pro at art! Love this and five star rating app!
The new update ruined it
Hello Sketches Developer team.
Sketches is a really great app, It’s really simple for people out there who do not like complicated drawing apps, I even bought sketches pro on it, and the best part was the community as it was a very nice feature. People got inspired from your drawings and you got inspired from peoples drawings aswell, All the tools are great and I’ve used nearly of them for all of my drawings. It’s been my favorite 1# drawing app for awhile, but not untill now. Every time you opened sketches you would see a cute cat drawing with a countdown of a when “a new version of sketches is coming out!”. The cat drawing changed everyday, and so did the countdown. Eventually at the last day I was so exited for the new version, I updated it and opened the app to see what changed. So I made a drawing, went to community to see what was new and I saw a page that said “Community is moved to instagram!”. It was such a bummer and plus I was disappointed that the community went to an app that half of the people on sketches dosen’t have, The only good part of sketches was the community, and it was just removed, Tayasui Sketches, If you see this. Please add the community agian, I bet most people on sketches agree with me too.
Things need to be fixed
For when Sketches updates, they are always bug fixes. Nothing is actually fixed. When I got pro, I wanted to check out the community. It wasn’t there, then I went to the section that said daily activities. Found the community, with a blue background instead of white. Also, none of the pictures would load. I am typing this a day after I got pro, so I tried several times. Before I got pro, I liked to visit the community. Some people complained about their drawings being randomly deleted. All of these things need to be fixed.
Edit: I have fixed my problem, I simply deleted, reinstalled and restored my purchase. I can now see the community! People complaining about their art being deleted is due to being reported, yet almost everyone’s art, I see no reason to report it. I did all this without contacting developers, as I knew I could figure out the solution. Thanks, Tayasui(?) Sketches for being my favorite drawing app:)
Edit 2: Tayasui is my favorite art app, but guess what? I went to eat, then no community. I don’t really care about pro, but at least I experienced it. You can already get gradients, more layers, and more without pro. Still, Tayasui is my favorite app, even though it has problems.
