You are extraordinary.

The models folder was fixed for a while but now it disappeared again, actually; the whole Draw Things folder is inaccessible and no longer has the icon thumbnail. It can be searched for in files but accessed.

Current: There might be a bug with the models folder. It seems to ghost in and out of existence in the files app. Its weird because it when I need to add models its nowhere to be found but existing models still work, that specific downloads folder is just gone and so is the entire DrawThings folder from my files and the search. But when I am Just browsing on Safari or in another app accessing Files; boom! There it is! Its even the default directory that open when visiting files pretty often! Its like a ghost that shows up randomly. Not a big deal currently since the dev has practically every awesome model link available for download in the app. I don’t even want to say you’re like the Auto1111 of iOS for SD, you will surpass Automatic; we believe in you. Thank you for enabling us and our iPhones with fricken dope Dreambooth models that get updated often. Idk how it could be done but if possible it would be incredible to have background generations. The speed of generation isn’t something I am worried about despite it being pretty dang good using Apples Neural chip thing; being able to slowly generate in the background and receive a notification when its ready would be gold. Kudos!

I heard that for sandboxing issues (this appears to be, as how Files app show directories from other apps relating to the sandbox policy), reboot the phone can help a lot. Otherwise thanks for the kind words!

The number one Stable Diffusion program for Silicon. Full stop.

I want to preface this by saying that this is ADVANCED AI generation software. I've seen a lot of 1 star reviews of this app by people who don't know what they're doing and are expecting to just type a prompt and get exactly what they want with no/minimal additional tweaking/setup. If that's what you want, use something like Midjourney. However, this software is virtually unparalleled in ease-of-setup and quality for using Stable Diffusion, you just have to do a little bit of learning and then it works virtually flawlessly. The app has support for LoRAs, textual inversion, and additive models. There are also plenty of quality-of-life features (like giving the option to delete models from your downloads folder once you upload to Draw Things.) There is also a wealth of settings to tweak as well as the option to clear the temporary cache to free up space. Underneath every setting is a well-writen and easy-to-read explanation detailing exactly what it does and what you might prefer to use. Massive respect and many thanks to Liu Liu for providing this software completely for free without any in-app purchases or subscriptions, you're brilliant. It's clear a lot of effort and care went into the user experience.

Needs UI Improvements

Specifically, on a 4K screen, the right sidebar showing the history shows images at low res scaled up so they appear pixelated compared to previewing the image you click on in the main middle column. Also, on such large screens it would be PERFECT if the grid based layout just shows up in the right sidebar where the history is instead of popping up in a tiny modal screen. I have a magic mouse and for some reason it doesn't scroll with inertia most of the time in this app. It could be the mouse, just that's part of the frustration of the current UI. Another is the inability to move through the history using the arrow quickly. The inability to right click on a history image and do more than just delete it. Would love to see updates to the UI to address these concerns and make it much much much easier to browse thousands of generated images quickly and more easily. There should be a way to end the current sequence of generations, not just skip 1 out of 100. If there's already a way, it's not obvious or intuitive. Also, can we please have an option to generate more than 100? Sometimes I like to leave it running all night. Also, can we please view and manage generated photos even while the app is generating new photos? That'd be great. I'll probably continue to edit this review as I think of new things, so check back often haha. Thanks so much for considering how you will update the UI soon!

Thanks for the detailed feedback. To stop the entire generation, you can right click to Skip button and there is a stop all option.
