Editors’ Notes

Sometimes our artistic ambitions exceed our technical know-how, which is why we’re so grateful for the simplicity of Linea. This sketching app eases us in gently with tools and settings we instinctively grasp—pen types, color shades, line widths—before revealing cool features like multiple drawing layers and templates. No intimidation, just pure creation.

Quickly turning into my favorite sketch app

Linea strikes a perfect balance of features and usability. It has just enough drawing tools that I don't t feel stifled and not so many they feel like a gimmick. The interface feels comfortable, so that drawing with the Apple Pencil is responsive, the pressure is well represented without force, and erasure with a finger is natural as rubbing something off the page. This is so much better than toggling between modes. Likewise, if my wrist rests on the display, it doesn't mess up my drawing.

The app offers layering, importing of images for reference or tracing, blend modes, and a clever draw-and-hold to get straight lines with a repositionable endpoint. Exporting is trivial, making this tool a nice solution to any step in a workflow.

Thanks for the wonderful review and your feedback! We've really tried to make the app as effortless to sketch in as possible and we're gratified you've hit on the main points that make it such. Appreciate you taking the time to leave your review, thanks again and enjoy Linea Sketch!

Excellent drawing, poor organization workflow

I will start by saying I love Linea. It is excellent for sketching with a razor like focus on the drawing experience workflow.
The main area I have issues with is organization. I do mostly UX work, and I have a very large amount of files across multiple projects and clients. The lack of any kind of organization, beyond naming is severely restricting. This is not specific only to linea, as most apps have daily poor organization. But the introduction to folders with at least 1 level deep nesting would go a really long way in helping to manage this.
Another feature would be faster iteration workflow. Forge solved this really well, although it’s now mostly abandon ware, but something similar in linea, for me to have something akin to a book, or a more branching flow, would be awesome. I frequently have to go back and forth opening and closing drawings.
I would also really like to be able to add accurate colors by hex or rgb/cmyk. Reorganize and copy. Or have folder/project based palettes.
I’m eager for a really juicy update, but as always I’ll always be looking at the tools that allow me to have the best workflow.

Thanks for your excellent feedback on Linea! Adding an additional level of folders inside of projects is something we'll definitely consider. Also, color improvements are on the list for the coming year as well including saving color palettes with an associated sketch or project so stay tuned (hopefully) there. We want to be able to select colors by hex value as well and that too is on the list to do.

A major update is coming to Linea tomorrow (March 20th). It won't address these issues specifically but it will improve some major areas in the app that we think you'll be pleased about. Be sure to check it out and thanks for your detailed review, we appreciate it!
