(~^-^)~ Absolute Perfection ~(^-^~)

This is, by far, the best free drawing app I’ve ever used. It has no ads, no in app purchases, and doesn’t collect any of your data.
It’s also really easy to work out what to do. I accidentally skipped the tutorial, but after a while of messing around with it, I have a pretty good idea of how everything works. There are heaps of brushes, blenders, and erasers, and each one of those has advanced settings (which are also really easy to use) so you can make them exactly how you like. I feel that I discover something new about the app every other day, like how you can easily turn the brush you’re using into an eraser version of it, or create colour palettes, or change the tolerance of the fill feature so you can fill a specific colour even if the colours next to it are really similar.
Many apps only work well if you use an Apple Pencil. This app is not included in those. I draw with my finger, and I can still create art that looks good.
I highly recommend downloading Sketchbook, as it is completely free, has no ads, super easy to use, and has so many features. Some reviews talk about it lagging, but that has never happened to me so it has probably been fixed.
Thanks for reading and have a nice day :)

Great app!

I was looking for any free drawing app for a long time. I got so bored and tired that i was willing to try anything. I just wanted a free drawing app with a simple layer system. I thought this app would just be another one constantly begging you to pay but it exceeded my expectations by far! It’s completely free, with no brushes to buy or features to unlock for money! It has a massive variety of brushes and erasers and blending tools! The preface is pretty simple and easy to use. It has everything a full paying professional program has. As I said before, there are SO MANY BRUSHES! You can easily play around with different styles and backgrounds. The touch and drag system is nice, and it even has a stabiliser! I draw on my iPhone with my finger, and I can say that it’s very easy to use and produces very lovely drawings! I love drawing and now I can do it wherever I go. I would definitely recommend this app to anyone looking for an effective phone/tablet drawing app.

Great Drawing App But Could Use A Small Amount Of Changes

I love sketchbook, it has many brush and pencil styles, a unlimited amount of layer possible and an intuitive menu making finding everything incredibly easy without getting in the way of you drawing. The app is great for people who are drawing for the first time or if experienced people just want to draw anywhere without bringing a computer with them.

There is a few features that I would like Autodesk to add. It would be nice if the fill tool was like a smart fill tool. What I mean by this is that the fill tool will only fill until a gap get to a certain thickness. I find it a bit annoying when I am trying to fill in a drawing and it floods everywhere, luckily there is the undo button. Another thing to change could be a way so that the gradient tool had a mode where the middle colour was just the two colours perfectly merged and so the gradient would be seamless. A final addition which would be my favourite is the addition to share a drawing document with someone else. I would love it if I could just invite my friend and he would help out in a drawing project.

All in all, with the 3 changes/additions I made, this app gets a 5 star rating but without those changes it get a good 4 stars. I recommend getting the app if you just feel like drawing or if you are getting into drawing.
