Try our incredible new ruler tool!
Bringing the legendary Moleskine notebook experience to iOS, Flow is an all-new way to create simple drawings, complex works of art, and beautiful notes all on your iPad and iPhone.
Flow has been built from the ground up with creators in mind, offering dozens of combinations for paper types, colors, and tools. And by pairing our custom drawing technology with Apple Pencil, Flow feels as responsive as drawing on real paper.
The state of flow is vital to achieve your creative potential. This led us to make documents in Flow infinite width so you can stay immersed. Create your own set of tools just like a virtual pencil case so you don’t need to constantly adjust colours, size and style. You can have five markers in shades of blue or just a single black pen in the ideal size—it’s up to you!
Flow’s flexibility serves amateurs and professionals alike, offering powerful art tools in an accessible format. With Flow, everyone can create sketches, lists, storyboards, designs, handwritten notes, floor plans, recipes, diagrams, journals and works of art. It’s the perfect space for ideas to be created, captured and shared.

We are so thankful for your interest in Flow. We’ve put lots of work into making the app the best it can be, and we read every single review you write. If you enjoy the app and want to leave a review, we’d really appreciate it!
• Minor enhancements
• Fixes the size of the pen editor when using pencil case mode on the iPhone
-- Previous updates --
Thanks for all of your great suggestions, we've completed a lot of popular feature requests in this version:
• PDF page import. Choose a PDF from Import > Files then select any page to place it on your Flow document. Boom.
• Tool opacity control. You asked for it and here it is! The new slider on the toolbar and tool editor controls the opacity of the selected tool. Setting it lower will decrease the strength at which the tool applies ink on the page.
• Correction Pen / Eraser. We’ve rebuilt the Eraser! Instead of having two modes, it is now two separate tools, making it quicker and easier to use. Choose the Eraser for when you want to remove entire strokes or images, choose the Correction Pen when you want to partially trim or cut into strokes and images.
• Graphite Pencil tool opacity now responds more rapidly to Apple Pencil pressure.
• Airbrush refined to suit the capabilities offered by the new opacity control.
• Improvements to tool response time.
• Thumbnails for your documents are now based on your last-edit position instead of last-viewed.
This update adds another great new function: the curve line. When the ruler is active, tap the line button (under shape options on the left side) and choose curve. You can then create whatever curve you need by moving the control points that appear on your ruler. The curve line also works when the ruler is set to mask mode.
We've also been hard at work under the hood, tuning our drawing engine technology. This update contains significant performance improvements to make drawing feel even smoother and more responsive. If you use Flow for writing, you'll notice it feels quicker than ever before.
We are super excited to release one of our biggest features ever (and the most requested) – say hello to the Ruler!
We thought long and hard about design of the Flow Ruler, and the result is a whole new take that you’ve never seen before. We think you’re going to love it! It’s all about empowering you to draw quickly and precisely, from simple lines and shapes all the way up to sophisticated multi-point perspective drawing.
Here’s a few things you can do with it:
• Draw straight lines and precise angles
• Draw perfect circles, ellipses, squares and rectangles
• Snap the ruler to background patterns for extra precision and spacing guidance
• Use masking to shade inside and outside shapes as well as along straight lines
• Turn on advanced reference lines for 1, 2 and 3 point perspectives
Also in this version, Flow now has a shiny new App Clip. When you share a document with someone who doesn’t yet have Flow, this will allow them to preview it quickly before they download the full app.
Ratings and Reviews
Have you ever written on magic paper? We have. You might know Moleskine for its world-famous notebooks: pages of creamy paper that feel amazing under your pen. Flow by Moleskine brings that experience to your iPhone and iPad.
Don’t add much, just make it better.
Learn from 53, Flow team. Once upon a time there was an app called Paper, by 53. It failed to improve and progress the way it’s users needed it to and now it’s a piece of crap. You guys are riding a very thin line with having minimal tools and options while still remaining relevant and having a very elegant app that’s a joy to use. As long as apps like Procreate exist, where you only pay once and can be as “pro” or as basic as you want with it, Flow is going to be a challenging sell. You’re riding on brand and aesthetics and that may not carry you forever.
But I get the vision of Flow and I personally love it. I’m a graphic designer, so it’s nice having a digital space to draw and think while not worrying about layers or being too granular with my sketches. Flow gives me permission to be messy, and I like that.
The paper formats are nice, I’ve found myself using the ruled format from time to time to take notes since Flow has my favorite interface (and sounds!) of any drawing app...so why not? Tools are great, I love the color picker and lack of total freedom while still having a TON of options. I don’t feel restricted with color.
I’d be wary with adding much in the way of functionality, but new tools from time to time would be fun. I’m looking forward to the app getting better at what it already does as opposed to becoming more feature-heavy.
Great for Remote Teaching
I have hastily tried around 20 different apps in search of a suitable application to perform remote teaching once Covid had forced me out of the classroom. I’m a math professor and needed an application that allowed an unlimited page length. I attempted to get by with others that had other helpful drawing tools, but having to open a new page every couple minutes ultimately made those apps a deal breaker. Now, apples notes was working well, but the inability to save in a format other than its own proprietary file system left me in search of a solution. At this point I discovered Flow which had almost everything that I needed. There is always room for improvement, but the developers seem to be on top of all that while making continual updates as well as creating new features (rulers as of late). I would like to see the ability to draw a strait line without having to open the ruler for that, but this is something users can ask for and the developers appear to listen. That one aspect alone is a huge game changer for me. I’m just not used to using software where the devs listen to the customer/users. All in all, flow and it’s other apps have proved to be absolutely essential for teaching remotely. I could go on and on about how I use the features to create a learning environment that makes the remote learning process much less painless for both me and my students, but I’d suggest give it a try.
Developer Response ,
Hi - thank you so much! It is always nice to hear positive feedback from our customers. Those words definitely motivate us to do better and better. Cheers, Anj
