Meshpi ,


I’m so happy they decided to support iPad and pencil. They even updated the app to support the new 2018 iPad quicker than most apps out there. I love to draw people and still life. And more recently architecture and interior design. This is the ONLY app that supports drawing shapes in perspective. Trust me this doesn’t exist even in sketchbook or Procreate. I can finally draw an ellipse in perspective! This is a huge deal to me. Everything from drawing a perfect square, car wheels and cylinders in perspective is now possible thanks to the optional eclipse perspective lock. If you’re looking for something a little less play and more professional than Procreate. Then this is what you need. Granted, the UI is not suitable for iPad so it’s not a perfect 5 stars. But they did a fantastic job of porting the desktop app to the iPad. I imagine this is the first step of many towards the future with support for iOS.

What I’d really love to see is support for the Metal engine for faster rendering times when panning the canvas with my fingers or drawing on huge canvas sizes.

I’d also love to see a UI refresh to bring it more inline with modern design because it’s starting to show it’s age.

Other than that I’m very pleased with the port and I’m now a subscriber of the pro edition.

Stabilization Doesnt Work (Updated)

I use Clip Studio on my desktop so i was excited to try it out for the iPad, and while it looks really good, the stabilization tool just doesn’t work, even when set to 100. I rely on stabilization for my type of work, so this was a big letdown for me. I’d like it if this could be fixed.

Update: Okay so stabilization does work with the Apple pencil apparently but still, I wish it would work to begin with regardless of what you use to draw.
