Great app but..

Clip studio is definitely a good digital drawing app to use, I’ve seen a lot of good artist use it; but there’s only one issue.. I absolutely hate the 60 minute timer. It’s not fair how we can only use the app for an hour each day. It’s stupid how you want people to download your app, yet- you only let us use it for an hour a day. It’s absolutely unnecessary. Please change this, I would love to use this app as a permanent drawing app for me. It’s absolutely crazy, and 50 dollars for the subscription?? I would not recommend to download this app unless if you wanna test it or something. That feature needs to be removed ASAP.

Developer Response ,

Thank you for taking the time to write a review.
We've taken note of the feedback regarding the 1-hour free usage limitation and are actively looking into ways to enhance our offerings for our users. Remember, you can also extend your free usage time with Clippy tokens, and we recommend checking out this feature if it interests you.
Furthermore, for the Smartphone Plan, we offer the PRO version at 0.99 USD per month and the EX version at 2.49 USD per month. These options allow you to use the service without the constraints of the time limit, and we invite you to consider them as well.

$50 just to not be able to use it

I just bought this for work a couple of days ago on my computer. My computer is pretty old so it can’t really run software like this all that well, and I can’t afford a new one. Since my device is newer, I thought to use it on that, but come to find out I’m not able to with the one time purchase. I cannot afford a recurring subscription, so I’ll just have to stick to using procreate, a one time purchase of $10 instead. This is a missed opportunity for the clip studio developers, I know users would love to be able to use their not cheap purchase on the iPad. Myself, as well as many others, I know would buy something like this with a one time purchase before a subscription any day (hence one of the reasons why procreate is so popular and highly rated).

The workflow.

The capabilities of the App are simply outstanding. The workflow on iPadOS is atrocious. There’s no direct access to the Photos app or folder whatsoever.

You have to move the files into the downloads or iCloud files to gain access. Which also means you often will have multiple copies of the same image all over the place.
