Although I have used the app before, I can tell it has improved by a lot. When I first got the app I wasn’t really into art as much. Now I have great interest in it. IbisPiant x is a really good app and I really recommend it. The thing that I really like about it is that there is a blur and smudge tool. I never knew how much I would actually use them but now I use the blur and smudge tool a lot. The smudge tool is really great I like how it’s not so aggressive I don’t know how to put this exactly but I’ve had other apps and there smudge tool was really not the best. It wouldn’t give the option to change the opacity although it did give a option for the size of the tool. On IbisPaint x it’s really not like that at all. It’s really smooth and has a nice flow. Speaking if smooth, the app isn’t laggy which is great. It does depend kn your internet but I have noticed with other apps that sometimes the screen might freeze or the brushes would be really choppy, as in it wouldn’t be smooth. Also I love the verity of brushes they are all really useful. I like how you can unlock all the brushes by watching a quick advertisement. Although it doesn’t stay forever I believe. One thing is that there are adds on the top of the screen which doesn’t really bother me. It’s awesome how you see peoples’ art i believe it’s the ‘Daily Ranking’ or something similar to that. I am very happy with the app overall. 10/10 I would recommend.

My thoughts on this amazing app!

I’m going to try and keep this short for the few apple users who actually read reviews. I have been using ibisPaint for a few years now, and it still holds up fairly well. it rarely crashes, the brushes are good, and you can even upload it to your drive in any type of file format. Now on to the issue of the ads. I’m well aware that the only form of money this app is making is via other companies paying them to have ads play on their site. Now I don’t mind watching an ad per day so I could use all the brushes for free. But now every time I open up a drawing, save a drawing, and now WHILE I’m drawing, an ad decides to rear it’s annoying head and interrupt whatever it is I’m doing. I didn’t mind getting ads when I saved a file or opened a file. But while I’m drawing, are you kidding me? You already shoved ads in our faces when we did simple tasks so I don’t see the point of showing an ad to someone who is trying to use your app. You are a drawing software it doesn’t make sense to interrupt someone who is trying to use your “drawing” software to make art. I know I said I would keep this short but I’m honestly done with the ads messing with the drawing process. At this point I would rather use other softwares like procreate or HiPaint. And if any of the devs who even read the reviews, Let me remind you this is a “drawing” software not an Ad software.

Great, but…

This app is amazing. It has a wide variety of colors and hundreds of brushes that can make artistry easier and more enjoyable for beginners and professionals alike. In addition to the more basic features, it creates the ability to edit your drawing without ever using a brush with things like blur, perspective, smudge, etc. You can even use grids, reference windows, stabilizers and different shaped rulers [for all of those tricky circles ;)] It can be a bit tricky to navigate at first, and I’m still learning as I go, but once you get the hang of it it’s super easy. And on top of it all, even though many things that I haven’t mentioned are premium features, Ibis has an amazing way of both keeping themselves in the air and giving us continence. Instead of having to watch an ad for EVERY SINGLE premium item, you can watch a singular one and get all brushes free for essentially the next day. Which brings me to the one problem. It’s not even an issue, more an inconvenience that I noticed had appeared recently. Every time you go to create a new canvas, enter/exit an existing one, etc. an ad pops up. They’re typically pretty short, and I do get that Ibis has to have some way of getting paychecks, but it’s extremely annoying since I’m constantly deleting my messed up creations and making new ones. If someone could fix this to be less frequent or even just explain why this has started happening, I would be a bit more content. Have a nice day! :)
