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.

If you feel passionately about angles, you know what we’re talking about.
- Improved Scrubber -
The scrubber for navigating your document now hides along with other interface elements when in fullscreen mode.
It also now hides when zooming your document so there is less chance of bumping it.
- Lasso Knife Enhancement -
The Lasso Knife now places your selection when you tap another tool (thanks for pointing this out Guilherme!). We’ve also fixed some rare bugs with z order.
- Reduced Drawing Safe Area around UI -
You can now start drawing closer to the tool editor.
Fixes a rare bug that could cause the app to crash at launch.
A wild tool appears! Introducing the new Lasso Knife tool, a powerful new way to create with Flow.
- Move and rotate -
With the Lasso Knife you can trace around parts of your drawing that you want to select and edit. The selected strokes lift off the page, you can move them by dragging around and tap to place them back down. When you have something selected you can also use two fingers to rotate.
- Duplicate -
You can copy anything you have selected by tapping the duplicate button on the tool editor. If you are using an Apple Pencil you can also press and hold a finger down then drag with the Pencil to create a copy.
- Select by pen type -
The Lasso Knife allows you to choose what kind of pen strokes it selects from the page. You can toggle each option from the tool editor when the Lasso Knife is your active tool. This is super handy when you want to edit just one part of your drawing, for example you can select just the graphite pencil lines from a sketch you’ve drawn over top of with a fineliner pen.
- Recolor -
You can change the color of any strokes you have selected, just press on the recolor icon and drag over your page or pens to get a new color. This feature becomes extra powerful when combined with selecting by pen type - for example you can select just the chisel marker shading on your drawing and modify its color.
We are working around the clock to update and improve Flow. If you enjoy using Flow we'd really appreciate if you had a moment to leave a review. If you've got a question or something isn't working quite right please email us. You can contact us directly from the Menu > Help > Contact Support.

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.
Not like other note/sketch apps—and that’s good!
I use Procreate and GoodNotes for when I need to get really in depth with my notes or drawing. I’ve been craving an app that has a beautiful, intuitive interface and is simple enough for me to quickly open and use it. Flow is inviting for someone somewhat unartistic as me to use, but I can also see its implications for more detailed sketching. I consider that this app is freshly made and so many features are on the way, and the team of developers is attentive to community suggestions although it is a small team. You can tell a good app by its developer response, so I have a lot of hope for the future of this one. I’m going to use the app more as it evolves, but I’m very pleased now. As to anyone who claims the app is too expensive—$12 once a year is not too much to pay if you pay about that much for a notebook you use in your hands from a bookstore. This app is a well executed attempt to emulate that personal experience with a paper notebook. That’s not easy, but it’s one of the reasons I purchased my iPad Pro with pencil. And if you’re a user that has the same intent as me, who’s already spent $900 or so on an iPad and pencil for that experience, another $12 every year is well worth it for the value returned. Thank you!
