Ratings and Reviews
I rarely review apps, but this one is an exception. This developer makes such great apps. They are designed to be USED. You can tell the dev has experience practicing calligraphy, because the tools are all practical. No useless features here. I have practiced Spencerian and Copperplate penmanship for many years, and this app is the ONLY one on the App Store that even came close to what I was looking for in terms of practice and learning new alphabets. This app is pretty much perfect for what it does. If you’re on the fence, and have an Apple Pencil: get this app immediately! You will NOT REGRET IT!!
To the DEVELOPER: Please keep updating this and all your wonderful calligraphy and writing apps!!
