Extremely simple app

Very simple and easy to use app. There’s no frills and that also makes it less distracting but maybe it could use some other feature like importing pics or a way to control the brush thickness. Also I’m not sure is the second icon an eraser or a brush?

Writing a new review…

Skip down to the bottom for the quick version.

Eight years ago I wrote my first review for this app. The app was getting too many bad reviews in my opinion. It was a beautiful idea in it’s simplicity. Give people the ability to sketch on their phones. I was using it on a second or third generation iPod touch. I don’t remember now which it was. But I do remember that this app offered enough to really be creative. The limitations required that the artist experiment and find a way to do what they were thinking. As a musician I always like putting myself into situations where I’m extremely limited and see what I can come up with. This was simply a different art form that was doing the same thing and really forced me to expand my thinking because I couldn’t expand my tools.
Well, other reviewer‘s did not like this at all. They kept screaming that it needed to have this or that and it didn’t even have this other thing that they wanted. It was like they wanted a complete Photoshop or Paint program in their phone eight years ago. So my review was pretty angry against other reviewer‘s rather than promoting how good this app was.

Here’s all you really need to know…

It’s an excellent intuitive app. It has grown with iOS but still creates a mild challenge. It gives you a certain set of tools and challenges you to explore your creativity. It’s an awesome sketch app. Be imaginative!

Easy to learn fascinating to use

First, please keep this app simple. I barely use the color option. If you draw this is an amazing app. I promote this to every artist I know. It’s not drawing exactly the lines I put down. There is a wonderful aspect that’s surprising and engaging. So much fun. And so simple without a million menus and choices. Just open and start working. Love it! Slight learning curve now that they added some things but besides procreate this is the only drawing art app I use on every one of my phones, iPads etc.
