Thank You for returning Adonit Bluetooth stylii support to Forge!

Thank You for reinstating Adonit Bluetooth stylus support to Forge.
I have waited a long time for this stylus maker support to return to the Forge App!
A VERY Looooong time!
Very, VERY much appreciated!!!

I LOVE your app and missed using it with a much better and precise third party Bluetooth stylus.
A love my Adonit stylii and still use mine to this day!

Thank You, THANK YOU VERY MUCH for doing this!!

Forge is one of my “Go To” apps for ANY art/design ideation!

I can truly appreciate this app, once again!

Perfect for Ideation and Storyboards!

I’ve experimented with a lot of apps on my iPad Pro when it comes to sketching and storyboarding ideas. Forge is perfect when it comes to getting those quick sketches to well-thought out storyboards! The UI is a pleasure to work in and the functionality is great! Recommend this to anyone who is thinking about downloading

The only thing that I do wish was better was the support for the Apple Pencil; sometimes I notice there is a lag when the iPad registers that my palm is on the screen. Maybe could be fixed with an option to only draw with the Apple Pencil when one is connected?

Was great but, not anymore... And still with the update

Over 50 sketches and drawings, cars, trucks, aircraft, bikes, and a gryphon sketch, all are visible, yet why the hell cant it be opened? Well for one, upon opening, the app shows "Null" / "Double tap to begin." Two, doing so as directed, the app shuts down, crashes, closes, and nothing can be accessed. I draw in my spare time on my iPad mini, I loved the app in the past, but not I'm highly upset with the latest update, whatever the hell happened with the previous forge, I have not a clue, but I'd like to be able to finish some of my work at some point time if I could actually access the app. Is it odd enough, the opening screen shows all work I've completed, yet none can be accessed, tapping or clicking does not open them, the app has failed to do its primary function, if this could be fixed within the next week or so, that would be great, I need the app for an upcoming project and without it, I'm screwed. It seems as they have given up on the app as well, which this makes me much more upset, what happened to the best app out there for artist? Where did y'all go wrong? Or more importantly, who needs to be fired.. update the app, yeah,great, still doesn't work people, done with Forge, you've lost all my respect for losing all of my work from a period of over two years.

Developer Response ,

Hello and regards,

This app has not gotten a great deal of loving care for many years. That has changed. We have been working very hard the last few months to fix stability issues. If the latest update still has problems, we very much want to work with you to fix them.
