Gute App mit kleinen Fehlern

Ich bin eigentlich sehr zufrieden mit Procreate, jedoch gibt es ein paar Kleinigkeiten, die mich stören. Erstens stürzt die App sehr oft ab und das auch gerne mal mehrere Male hintereinander und mehrmals am Tag. Auch nach mehreren Updates ist dieser Fehler noch da. Zweitens denke ich, dass für Anfänger mehr Erklärungen bereitgestellt werden sollten. Ich habe mir die meisten wichtigen Informationen irgendwo im Internet zusammengekratzt und habe das Gefühl, durch die fehlenden Erklärungen in der App viele tolle Features nicht wahrzunehmen. Drittens, jedoch glaube ich nicht, dass das nur an der App liegt, gibt es bei mir oft Probleme beim Zeichnen mit dem Apple Pen, wenn das iPad gleichzeitig lädt. In anderen Programmen treten keine Störungen auf, in Procreate jedoch wird die Linie wackelig und unterbrochen.
An sich lohnt es sich schon, sich die App zu holen, jedoch wäre es schön, wenn diese kleinen Makel auch noch ausgebessert werden könnten :)

Beste Alternative fürs IPad

Der Funktionsumfang den Procreate bietet ist einfach klasse. Die App läuft bei mir auf meinem IPad 10.5 sehr stabil; Abstürze oder Ungenauigkeiten beim Zeichnen (Apple Pencil) sind mir noch nicht untergekommen und ich habe die App täglich für mehrere Stunden seit 2 Wochen im Einsatz. Klar, zu Beginn ist es etwas aufwendiger sich einzuarbeiten und sich mit dem Programm vertraut zu machen, aber da hat mir das Handbuch von Procreate sehr weiter geholfen. Das würde ich auch jeden Neuling ans Herz legen, da hier doch viele negative Bewertungen geschrieben werden, die angeblich Funktionen missen, die in Procreate enthalten sind, aber manchmal echt gut versteckt wurden :) Auf der Suche nach dem optimalen Zeichenprogramm fürs IPad bin ich auch immer wieder auf Procreate gestoßen, weshalb ich mich schließlich für den Kauf entschiede habe. Die Entscheidung bereue ich in keinster Weise.

Vielen Dank auch an die nette Community im Forum, die mir bei einer meiner Fragen schnell weitergeholfen hat.
