Bringing the legendary Moleskine notebook experience to iOS, Flow is an all-new way to create simple drawings, complex works of art, and beautiful notes all on your iPad and iPhone.

Flow has been built from the ground up with creators in mind, offering dozens of combinations for paper types, colors, and tools. And by pairing our custom drawing technology with Apple Pencil, Flow feels as responsive as drawing on real paper.

The state of flow is vital to achieve your creative potential. This led us to make documents in Flow infinite width so you can stay immersed. Create your own set of tools just like a virtual pencil case so you don’t need to constantly adjust colours, size and style. You can have five markers in shades of blue or just a single black pen in the ideal size—it’s up to you!

Flow’s flexibility serves amateurs and professionals alike, offering powerful art tools in an accessible format. With Flow, everyone can create sketches, lists, storyboards, designs, handwritten notes, floor plans, recipes, diagrams, journals and works of art. It’s the perfect space for ideas to be created, captured and shared.

- Create your own unique set of drawing tools
- Dark and light paper with dot grid, squared, lined or blank styles

Editors’ Notes

Have you ever written on magic paper? We have. You might know Moleskine for its world-famous notebooks: pages of creamy paper that feel amazing under your pen. Flow by Moleskine brings that experience to your iPhone and iPad.

Good but not great

As with other apps in this series, this app is unique and functionally beautiful with a lot of nifty tricks up its sleeve. However, as some other reviews here already point out, there are other “pro” apps which have quite a rich feature set themselves at a lower prices.

While this app is a great addition to the this Moleskine’s portfolio, its not great enough to warrant a subscription. The todo and calendar apps by the same developers are fantastic and would very highly recommend them to everyone. Every minute of experimentation is worth spending on those other apps. To be honest, they set the bar too high and that is part of the problem ;)

Suggestion to developers: if you offer a plan for all 3 apps at a price not too greater than current *individual* prices, there is a great chance that this suite will be 10x more successful (and who knows, maybe even 100x or more). Please consider it seriously.
