This update adds gallery file sorting options and the ability to recreate thumbnails for paintings that have lost them. Both options are available in from the menu at the top of the gallery. We've also made some changes to file naming and storage to fix some reported problems, added an indicator to the canvas so that you know which way is 'up' when you create it, and made some improvements to scripting support.
As always, if you have any problems please contact us via our support link and we'll be happy to look in to it and help out!

So much to love, so much that makes you scratch your head
ArtRage has so much potential as an iOS app, and given that they charge a decent little fee for it, I can’t for the life of me figure out why they don’t develop it into a true art app.
The tools are surprisingly responsive and versatile, and the pencil tool is one of the best I’ve used—and I’ve used ALL the art apps. I own several expensive ones, as well.
The color picker is easy to use and intuitive, which is more than I can say for most.
But the UI is clunky, and that’s being generous. The lack of grid functionality and tap assignment means you can’t “undo” with two fingers or even suggest it. The menus get in the way, and things pop up that you have no idea how to turn off. There are no guides or rulers that I can see, but then, there’s no helpful introduction to the features and hidden tool settings.
I want to love this app, as it’s a delight to draw with. But in the name of all that is holy, bring it up to speed with the rest of the art apps out there. It’s good enough to be a top app.
Zooming MUST Be Fixed!!
I love this app. It helps me stay calm and at peace day to day. The only thing I have an issue with is the zooming. At times it is not responsive and when I want to zoom into my drawing, it will leave giant blotches of ink or paint on my art that I then have to remove. Every. Time. Please, fix this issue so the app can run smoothly across the board.
Developer Response ,
Hi there! It sounds like the screen isn't recognising your touch as a gesture. If the iPad thinks your fingers are put down at different times, it will tell ArtRage that you are drawing instead of zooming. Unfortunately, this isn't adjustable inside ArtRage, our app just uses the information from the iPad, so you may need to change the way you make gestures slightly. If you use a stylus, then you can enable 'Reject Touch Input' in Preferences, which will allow you to make gestures, but not draw with your fingers.
We are glad to hear that you enjoy ArtRage apart from this, and hope that zooming gets easier for you.
4.7 easily but...
This app is phenomenal. The only thing that should be added is a selection option to the pencil only. Repositioning a stroke of paint or two that you don’t necessarily want to erase or paint over would indeed compromise what this app embodies as a digital version of traditional painting. Although I’ve only been using it for just a few month, I feel that it is revolutionary in that of its predecessors and will always be used in my arsenal of mediums. Well done Ambient Design Ltd.!!!
