A Lot of Glitches and Bugs

I Have been using the App for a very long time but since the 2 new Updates I don’t think I will be able to use it anymore.
A lot of problematic glitches and bugs appeared that never happened before the Updates:
-The App kicks me out randomly
-When I get out of the drawing or the App the drawing resets and I have to do what I have done again
-I doesn’t let me go back to an action
-It automatically deletes new frames
-It randomly Zooms In Or Out
-It doesn’t let me Edit Files of my Drawings
-It doesn’t let me delete files or drawings
-It deleted all my post in the community
-It doesn’t let me use tools the way I want to use them
-It randomly switches colors
As you can see these glitches and bugs are very problematic and are a huge downfall. They all appeared after the “Cloud Update”. I hope that the developer will fix them soon or the App won’t function like it used to and it will make also people to use another App for drawing.

Great app but

I try drawing, but there's always some kind of slideshow-pop up that appears out of the blue to tell me about other features of the app, but I can't close it! I always have to restart the app and wait for yet another pop up.
