Such a smooth app!, and perfect for beginners to get into.

There’s a reason why this app has such a big fan following: its smooth, its easy, and its optimised.
Apple pencil works seamlessly, as expected. The UI is clean and great. The shortcuts can feel weird at starting, and there’s no double tap to undo - (there actually is but its limited to one of the four corners of the display).
The one thing it lacks is functionality with layers, as in theres no masking and such.
Overall, sketchbook is a pleasure to use for those who are getting into art, and im sure many professionals also love this app.

Great application

I really love this . I am happy that you made this awesome platform for digital artists like us for free thank you for that . For me It was absolutely perfect in the beginning but now Its lagging and sometimes the application is crashing and not working when i draw in the zoom mode . I have my phone storage in the correct limit yet still I have this issue.
And also could you add the timelapse recording feature just as an video of the frames only in the next update . hope you guys fix this issue soon .
Thank you !

Spectacular Experience

There’s variety of tools of everyone’s liking and most importantly with the help of guide tools Ex, Ruler, or Oval Stencil makes a difference and it’s very easy to use and very responsive. As I said above there’s “Variety of tools” they’ve also included Copic Markers to help us get our rendering done. That’s the best tool. And there’s lots of non settings for paintbrushes, if you use painting knife very frequently than you don’t have to worry. I do them as I love to create mountains with pointed knife and it works extremely good. Give it a try and you’ll love it.
