UpRocka ,

Way to go!

Hey!! — I’ve deleted my old critique of the previous version. Thank you for listening to my feedback! I’d like to add that the new version totally exceeded my expectations... well done!!

Only additional recommendation is to implement an option to “snapping” when turning your artwork to line up the way you’d like. This is particularly useful when you need it at a perfect 90°, etc.

UPDATE - February 17
Hmmm... not sure what’s up now, saw there was yet another update so went ahead and downloaded. Now the app is permanently stuck on the tutorial and Is unable to advance to the next step. There’s no option to tap NEXT. Keeps flickering.

Tried deleting and reinstalling. Same issue.

Developer Response ,

Hi UpRocka, please wait for the tutorial video end to tap NEXT. I found many people skipped the tutorial but then asking how to record video, that’s why I make such change. The latest v3.1 added rotation snapping, 2 finger double tap to toggle visual effect and extended zoom range.
