The app idea of very very cool and great but i dont have an apple pencil so i couldnt draw the app did not say that i need one :( can you guys please add finger mode that you can move the ‚painting‘ with 2 fingers and paint with 1 finger?

Developer Response ,

The Apple Pen is necessary because the interface uses touch input for navigating the scene, and the pen input for drawing. That said, we’ll definitely keep your feedback in mind for future development and look for alternatives for those without pens. While you cannot draw without the pen, you can still explore other scenes in the app if you’d like!

App gut, aber

Ich habe die App zum ersten Mal genutzt und auch wirklich viel Spaß dabei gehabt, jedoch ist das einzige Problem, dass mir die App abgestürzt ist und somit Stundenlange Arbeit komplett weg ist. ;( Also Tipp an alle die das lesen: Speichert so viel es geht :(.
