Handles watercolours best!

No other app handles watercolours as this one. Colour changes depending on Brush, pressure, paper-type or even time. But you do need to know some basics in watercolours before starting. In my case, I was completely new to drawing but still I am enjoying it a lot with the help of useful tutorials on the app. Good quality drawing book costs more than this. Worth a purchase.

Why change something which was already good enough.

We had the option to hide the brush characteristics like opacity and size tool on the right. It was good that way because it wont come in way while drawing. now its just lying there and it gets really annoying. I love every thing about tayasui sketches but this.

Edit: In the last update the app crashed a number of times which is hopefully fixed in this update, but quite a few times when i pinch out the canvas just stays and all the tools are gone i can draw with the existing brush but cant select anything and theres just a single question mark symbol on the top. i lost my work and patience a lot of times due to this.

Developer Response ,

HI, We're sorry about the inconvenience, we changed the brush editor design but didn't realize it might be a trouble for drawing. We will take into consideration your feedback for a future update. Best Regards and sorry for the trouble,

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 !
