Feedback on the update..
♥️ First off, this is a beautiful watercolor simulation app (in case people were not aware). I hope that never changes. This last update did however increase the “dry pattern” texture after one touches the wet to dry droplet tool while using the water color brush. Although the new dried pattern is very random and textured nicely, it’s a bit more intense in areas that make it harder to blend out because the blender tool doesn’t size down (just a bit too large, desperately needs to be resizable). I really loved the former water color dried pattern because it was so subtle after drying. It only needed minor blending. If we could choose between strong and subtle dry patterns that would be awesome. I hope we can get that subtle water color pattern back, it’s highly missed. Again both texture options would be ideal and a resizable blender tool.
Thanks for a beautiful app.. I use several of the best design/media simulation apps as art is my profession. This app is among the best, I’m always using it. ❤️🥰

One of the best drawing apps!
This is probably the best (and mostly only) drawing app on the appstore.
It has given me a liberty to make stupid doodles whenever i want and that’s something I didn’t have before. But it can have some improvements. First off, when you drag drawings you can share them, send them to another folder, or delete them. And while this is useful, the manual also says i can move them inside the folder, but all i can do is order them in order of edition or creation. Can you make it so that you can move drawing wherever you want plz? Also a suggestion i have had for a long time is a option to use pixelart, that may sound dumb, but it would a lifesaver. Also can you make the pencils 100% pixelated? The blurry pencils may look nice and scene less but when using the filler tool it looks ugly and leaves you with a white outline. Also in the second layer the transparency is just white, making the cut option useless. Speaking of transparency, when you turn a drawing into a picture all the transparency is lost and turned into a white void, making using one drawing on another very dificult. And also i get that this is part of the Pro Version but i would love a colorpicker and multiple layers. And the option to choose when to turn an image into a foto.
Anyways appart from that this is the perfect drawing app. 🙂👍
This is a pretty chill game. You got your different tools, you got your layers, you got an unlimited color palette to choose from, and a way for you to share your creations. I’ve have this app for a while now and I just adore how simple yet intricate it is. Usually when I get an app to draw on, its usually setup to be too intricate or not intricate enough—and this app finally provides a nice middle ground between the two. I love this app to death, and sure the paywall is kind of ridiculous but how else are companies supposed to expect a free app to make funds out of it. There is just one flaw in this app that has nothing to do with its setup or lack of layering system <cough cough>, but with one of the tools.
Whenever I try to use the “scissor” tool to move certain objects in my drawing around, it somehow glitches, multiplies the area I selected, and distorts said region. Its almost impossible for any digital artist to live without this tool so I don’t understand why this issue has not been accounted for yet. I am not aware if I am the only one experiencing this, but this problem has become very annoying and made the chill times I had with this app very mediocre. I hope that this problem gets fixed soon in the next update.
