Lord Styphon ,

Much like Adobe Photoshop

Great for photo processing, not just a drawing program.
If you are used to Adobe Photoshop menus, this is very similar.
Far easier to use compared to Affinity Photo for quick photo editing - for example to the Internet.

Mlindegaard ,

The app is perfect

The best drawing app out there. Beats Procreate in every single way.

Falkelind ,


Artstudio Pro....the only place to go. Working professionally with art and graphics, apps like Procreate is a great platform, but besides from having the same features, pretty much, A.P. is so much more....and is constantly under development. Simply awesome.
