Ratings and Reviews
Brilliant app all around for geometric forms and designs
I have used this app for years and am absolutely over the moon for what it can do. I love the sparkle and emboss options, and the ability to use design mode to overlay symmetries of different geometric points. Despite being a years long regular user, I am always learning something new that it can do. It can be as complicated, or as simple, as you want it to me.
I have only one request: a random colorizer. I often get stuck in finding colors that pair well, and if there were a button you could turn on that wouldrsndoize the colors (say everytime you lift the pencil), it would be absolute genius!
Crashed my iPad twice!
Im an artist and I liked this app, there are some things I would like to have there to have more flexibility and abilities during the creating process, but it was pleasurable enough for a few weeks since Ive got it until all of the sudden it crashed my iPad! The screen got black with couple of flashing strips across, and I couldn't even turn off my device does not matter how many times Ive tried! All I could see the screen is not off completely. Some thing like that happen a few years ago with my Desktop when virus killed my hard drive. So I thought 'That's it! Good buy iPad!'... Then fortunately about 5-7 minutes later my iPad went off. So Ive waited for another 5 min and turned it back on, and was happy to see, that its not 'dead', but I gave it another try with this app and when I ask it to continue on my project (which was an Easter Egg) my iPad momentarily crashed again in the same manner. So, when I was able to turn it back on, I just deleted this app - no more tries, could cost me a lot! If developer will try and fix the problem would be nice, because this app can really do the job! Ive got two of this apps in the bundle, and Im afraid to try the other one even I did not delete the other one yet.
Developer Response ,
Hi NEW4600, sorry for the inconvenience. This definitely should not happen and definitely is not the usual behaviour. Could you please contact me directly through the science-to-touch website. So that we can find out what was going wrong. Would be great to have your input.
Disappointed in the pro’s image quality compared to the original version
First I have to say I love iOrnament app. I do a lot of mandalas and intricate drawing with it. When I saw the pro version, I had to buy it. However, after playing with it for a bit, I noticed some difference in the image quality. When drawing in pro, my lines have a much more pixelated edge rather than a nice smooth edge that I get with the original app. I switched back to the original and will continue using until this issue is fixed. I have screen shot the images made in both apps and you can definitely see the difference. I do have the high res turned on.
I also did not like that when you export the image, the whole screen is exported not just my image but also the black background making the image even smaller pixels as I get a 4096x 4096 in the original app and only 4096x3072, making it only 3072x3072 when I crop off the black background. I feel the image quality has decreased with the new pro version.
I’d also like to see a full 300 dpi for images as line work prints best at 300 dpi. When I change 264 to 300 in my editing software, my image print size is reduced.
