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.

What’s New

Version 2.1.5

• General polish & fixes.

We have some great new features in this update:

You can now make a selection with the Lasso Knife and group those items together into a single object. This is a powerful new feature that makes it quick and easy to make reusable drawings which can be easily selected, overlapped and rearranged. To use grouping, simply tap the chain icon once you make a selection. You can ungroup by tapping the broken chain icon.

There is a shiny new icon in the top bar – say hello to the visual clipboard. Your most recent items that have been copied to the clipboard will appear here, making it quick and easy to copy complex selections, especially between different documents. Just tap an item to insert it to your active document.

We are working on an awesome new feature that starts with R and ends in ULER. We can’t wait to bring it to you and will be sharing more details soon.

•Fixed a crash seen by some of our users

• Improved gesture support.
• General polish & fixes.

With Flow 2, multiple people can work on the same document at the same time from separate devices wherever they are in the world. It’s a truly groundbreaking way to collaborate, now more than ever. We had architects who wanted to mark out designs with their assistant who’s based on the other side of town. Employers needing to collaborate with their staff that are working from home. Grandparents wanting to color in with their grandchildren remotely.

You now have the option to choose a vertical document if top-to-bottom infinite canvas works better for you than side to side infinite canvas. You choose orientation when creating a new document, and this cannot be changed once set.

We want Flow to disappear when you’re using it, so we invented Pencil Case mode to give the option of taking your tools away from your iPad screen entirely and putting them on your iPhone instead. It separates the artistic and utilitarian sides of your creation so you can have a clean space to work - without the clutter of your tools. You simply place your iPad and iPhone side by side, open Flow on both of them and through magic (or rather some very clever coding) your tools are shown on your iPhone. Just make sure you are signed into the same Flow account on both devices.

You may have noticed we quietly launched this recently but now it’s ready for everyone. Here’s what you can do:

- Add images to your document from Photo Library or Files (including iCloud, Dropbox, Adobe Creative Cloud, Box, OneDrive, Google Drive, Amazon)
- Take photos directly in Flow and then draw on top of them
- Paste images from your clipboard, even from your other devices like Mac using Universal Clipboard
- Drag and drop to grab images from other apps
- Use the Lasso Knife tool for rotating, resizing and moving your image
- Duplicate images to save you from adding the image again
- Change the opacity by using the long press menu


- All new sync engine - performance and stability are better than ever thanks to our all new sync engine, built from the ground up.
- Flow on iPhone - now opens documents in read-only mode so it’s easier to navigate without accidentally drawing. Tap and hold the pen icon to open your tools.
- Clipboard - copy lasso selections to your clipboard and paste into other Flow documents. If you have universal clipboard enabled, you can paste an image directly onto your Mac or other iOS/iPadOS device in any app.

If you experience any issues at all, our team is here to help - just email or tap Help > Talk To Our Team from the Flow menu.

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 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 app, still room to grow

I fell in love with the beautiful UI and clean aesthetic of this app during my demo, and will definitely be willing to pay the reasonable $12/yr to keep enjoying it (please just don’t bump that price back up to $30). The sight of my digital notebook spreads looking just like my physical ones is super satisfying; it truly does make me want to keep writing and writing, whether it’s journal entries, work notes, or sketches.

There are still some visible rough edges, though. Resolution gets very blurry when you scroll through pages of a single file, and there’s no way to zoom out and view the whole thing. The minimal interface is a selling point so they shouldn’t clutter it, but certain organizational features and customization options (ex. better file management, the ability to save default page setups) are absent, and sorely missed. I expect quality from Moleskine and think, especially since this not just a paid app but part of a subscription service, they still have work to do. Assuming they continue to refine the app though I will gladly comes back to renew my subscription.
