Ratings and Reviews
Okay, but slow
Good idea. Practical. I can see myself using this regularly if bugs are fixed. But the app is painfully slow at times. Running on a 2018 iPad Pro. There shouldn't be any delay just navigating between menus.
Slow, glitchy, a pain to use
Was told by an experienced user to get this app so I soldiered on through the arduous registration process - confirming email address etc... I wasn’t able to access content with the email I signed up with, so I registered with another email address because the one I entered was taken - by me! It has been “confirming my account” for the last ten minutes. In the several hours I have tried to set this app up, I haven’t made 1 drawing, but I have received 6 emails from the developer bragging about the capabilities of the app.
The best was took off
Unfortunately I realized that the best thing that was to use our own photos and drawings was took off in order to get some money. The drawings are not what we can call an anatomic detailed drawing but the tools to draw on previously saved photos was helpful. A pity to discover after installation that one have to pay to have something that was using afterwards. I really hope that this tool is going to be available soon.
