Very helpful

I’m am currently creating a manga series, and this app is very helpful to me as I am now able to keep my thumbnail sketches with me at all times, and in one organized place. It takes a little bit of time to learn how to use all the functions of the app, but once you get it down pat it’s relatively easy to use. It hasn’t crashed on me at all, and all my save data has been safe the entire time I’ve been using it. The tutorials are easy to understand, and the practice pages are great. I’m very grateful for a free app like this, it’s great for planning, doodling, and practicing creating manga!

Great tools, Impossible accessibility

I definitely love this app. These tools are BEYOND amazing and can really spark creativity inside someone. I really loved this app and how it looked. I was triumphant getting in to the system and starting my first manga, but then...

You literally need to be a mangaka to use this app.

I wish this was much more accessible in it’s tools. I always leave the lines when making specific panels, the whole design is hard and overall tedious to use. Sometimes I might find myself doing something on the paper that I don’t want, and that’s because it’s small and annoying. If you could really change this to make it so that you don’t need to be an artist (because Apple advertised it as for anyone). ありがと〜

Please make drawing available offline

This app is really good, I won’t lie. It has a lot going for it. The interface is professional without seeming to complicated, and it works even better if you have the Apple pen. However, all of this is completely useless if you’re not connected to the internet. This boggles my mind, as almost every single art app I’ve ever tried out is available to use offline. I understand if you can’t make the tutorials available without internet connection but please, I beg of you, make it so that you can draw and work on your own projects without having to connect to the internet. I would definitely give this app a 5 star rating if you took the time to make this change.
