Absolutely fantastic app!

I’ve had this app since it first came out. It was very good. But now that it’s been updated it’s absolutely beyond fabulous. It has brushes in various geometric shapes. You can use them as is or you can open the brush engine and set up the brushes as you wish. Spacing, opacity, on and on. Amazing and quite sophisticated.

The app was made by one of the people from Pixite. They make only quality apps and that quality shows here, as well as the brilliant creativity.

Bravo! Well worth the money! Hours of creative fun here!

Paint with geometric forms

So happy to see an update! And promise of more to come! I feared Deco Sketch would be phased out by the next iOS upgrade. Although some of the brushes can be found in similar form in other apps, many are unique to DS, and none bring to the table anything like its geometric variety and versatility. Paint from scratch or add effects to an existing image. Brilliant!

My only quibble is I'm puzzled by why "redo" sits above "undo," in reverse of the standard alignment. For awhile I thought "undo" didn't work.

Really? Is it that hard?

Is it that hard to make an app design that makes logical sense. That doesn’t leave the user scratching his head and then ultimately force quitting the app so that they can start over again. Now it’s the third try though and it’s fickle world so this user abandons the app and heads over to the complaint booth to hopefully persuade the author of this app to invest some excessive time in user testing. And not with his wife and 12 year old son and then calling it a successful day. Rather finding grandma and grandpa or at least a dozen random people at a local tech meetup to see if they get stuck. Making a highly usable app takes work but the research will guide you at every step.
