Waiting for new feature


Often I'd like to look at my own artworks in the app but folder previews are small and opening them begins the edit. There's is no way in the app to create a carousel of my pieces, like what if my pieces could get custom framing and I could view them like a gallery art piece.

Hope you get my point.

Fix these few things and it will be the best app for designers !

Inspite of purchasing your PRO version there are certain things I reallllyyy miss!

1) A GRID - Drawing on various layers and not having a grid to align or adjust them symmetrically is a big drawback. Even snapchat and instagram stories have an adjustment grid so that texts and pictures can be adjusted properly!

2) A LINE TOOL - Come on guys..its such a basic thing for every designer ! Your scale doesn’t really help and is tough to use when diagonal lines need to be made!

3) A FILLING TOOL - The filling tool provided by you guys is okay when it comes to backgrounds. But filling inside shapes isn’t really that convenient as the sides get pixelated!

4) SOME BASIC SHAPES - Since the filling tool isn’t that should ensure common shapes are provided ! How can basic shapes like an OVAL & RECTANGLE aren’t provided ?

Please please try resolving these in the next update. If these things are there in any other update..please tell !

GRIDS! give us grids.

Having used several sketching/note-taking apps on my iPad Pro, I found this to be the most similar to maintaining a journal. That’s why I stuck with this and even bought the pro version.

If only you can give the user to choose grids over the paper in the ‘customise paper’ menu, it’ll be so much more better. A dotted grid, a square grid and horizontal/vertical line grids. It would very much complete the app as a whole.
