This app is amazing I was playing Procreate but I can’t play it because my iPad is too old. So then I found this and it is really fun. But I have an idea. How about you add a bucket tool because then it would be easier to fill in shapes. Just an idea but anyways keep up the work!!! :) 🌈

Hi, Thank you for reaching us. You can use the fill tool to fill a closed area in one tap, just like with the "bucket tool". Please have a look on our online help :

The design in this app is absolutely flawless. You get the vitality and voice of traditional art on the go, with all the benefits of digital art. It offers a wide range of tools to use and an easy interface, making it easy for both hobbyists and professionals. Although I recommend purchasing a stylus if you'll be using this on your phone for polished work.

Great versatility

I like this app a lot but I had an issue with downloading the paid pro version. I have Apple Family sharing, yet I was charged for all four family members downloading the pro version. I contacted Apple about the issue and all they did was automatically issue me a refund for my own Apple account, which is not what I wanted. If you are looking to pay for the pro version and share with your family, beware! You will be charged for every family member who uses it.
