I use this app all the time for my art, and I believe this is the best free painting app out there. you have access to every type of brush, and all you have to do to get access to them is just watch one ad, and you have access for like 24 or 48 hours (I forgot exactly). There is a small advertisement banner at the top of the screen, but it doesn’t block anything at all nor does it ever get in the way. Every once in a while an ad will pop up if you exit a painting, but ads NEVER pop up while you’re working. Only cons I have found with this is that It does not have much cloud storage space (4-5 artworks are able to be saved, really depending on size, as the others after that will show to have been unable to have been uploaded to the cloud), and you have to pay for extra storage (personally I don’t). It is a very simple and easy app to use with tutorials, and you can connect you Facebook to it to save all of your progress that is uploaded to the cloud, so I can easily transition from my phone to my tablet instantly (if certain artwork is saved to the cloud). As far as I can see, there is no limit to how many canvases you can have saved within the app, you only need the cloud save if you want to move your work to another device, although I save artworks that are done in a file folder and delete them from the app just so I can have more room for storage for more art I may make. This app has been amazing and by far my favorite app to use! VERY HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!

An honest opinion

I’m very new to digital art but I’ve picked up pretty fast and am already taking commissions. Out of all the programs I’ve tried this one is really stellar. It gave me everything others lacked such as more brushes and brush customization, paint bucket tool, merging layers etc. At first I will admit that I was a bit confused because of all the options on the interface but really you get so used to it after really drawing with it. The only time it crashes is when I input a image that the app deems too big, however it’s not a big issue because I can simply adjust the size and it works perfectly (plus it auto saves my work when it did crash). Some of the brushes can be very laggy but really they’re perfect for what I need. The ruler options are also very very handy. Really if you “cant draw” like the negative comments are saying I believe it’s a user fault, maybe they are on a wrong or hidden layer or maybe their opacity is down. I love this a lot. If ur reading this I recommend the download. a big plus is for just one ad you unlock all the locked features for 18 hours, unlike other apps that bombard you with advertisements and lock off everything. Bravo developers I can tell you care about this.💕 Definitely recommend downloading if you’re new to digital art. It introduces you to all the tools and for me even works without WiFi. And I was surprised to say that it’s auto recorded my whole drawing?? That’s SICK. Great great job🎨✨

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.
