I ❤️ Freeform!

I have only had PowerPoint in Microsoft 365 for 5 months. However, thanks to Freeform, it has made my science fair project for the next school year easier. I do not have to use a keyboard like PowerPoint does because I only use PowerPoint on my Chromebook for school, and computers have a keyboard. Well, thanks to Freeform, It does not make me feel tired. It also requires more work to get to PowerPoint. But, because Freeform is an application, it is easier. Also, my iPad is in my arm’s reach because I charge it on the lowest level of my house and it is usable downstairs or upstairs, depending on my overall energy level. I also do not have to login with an account, but I must use my school account to use PowerPoint. Freeform also saves my projects automatically, while PowerPoint requires more work, I also need less material and work. So Freeform has made my life easier to create school presentations. Thank you very much Apple Company for creating this application. You are the best Apple Company!

I loved it!!

I absolutely loves freedom! It was so fun to play with, but the only reason I made it four stars, is because I do not like the paint option. I know it is quite silly to put in a review, but I think if they fixed the paint option, it be way better experience for me and probably a lot of others. You must be wondering what what’s the problem? The problem is that the choice to make it big to where you can see it from far away is very messed up. The thing I don’t like about it is that that makes it to where it’s area not perimeter. Well I mean by that is I wish it didn’t let you expand I was there was a different option in the paint options to where you can just make it a line or were you can just make it a area kind of one. But that’s not the case so if the developer or someone who works for the developer is reading this, can you please fix this problem? Other than that I love freedom. It’s just that one problem that I do not like and and also I wish it could be where it could expand more like the actual outlook of the of the thing you are drawing on I wish you could expand. It’s very big and said of just sing the whole white or the drawing. I’m sorry this was a very long one. I’m pretty sure there are more longer one somewhere but , thank you for reading!

So close to perfect for the Apple Pencil!

I love all the tools available, all the ways it can be used for sure, all it needs to be perfect… I think would be some extra tools for the Apple Pencil itself, like… I’d suggest a brush being one of the effects for the Apple Pencil, because it would be wonderful to make more traditional paint-brush-effects, for recreating traditional paintings digitally. I also would suggest a pallet knife effect too, as this would also have a fantastic effect as well. Honestly, got greatly recently inspired by watching Bob Ross and his fantastic work, I especially believe his methods could be recreated digitally if the tools can be recreated, like the tools he’s used in painting itself. Trust me Apple, you guys would want to invest in these upgrades to the software, especially with how the 1st gen and 2nd gen Apple Pencil investments are for the artists above all else. I’d suggest this, due to how especially with the 2nd gen version of the Pencil has extra buttons too, people could program the buttons for switching between brush sizes and shapes, as well as how strong or light the brush can work. Genuinely, I wanna use my Apple Pencil for art more, since Bob Ross has me wanting to try pseudo painting, and this software updating for more tools would make every possible artist so happy it isn’t even funny!
