Ratings and Reviews
As good as Procreate
I’ve tried both Procreate and MediBang, their brush engines are vastly different but MediBang wins! MediBang feels like Paint Tool Sai, which I love. It makes cleaner, sharper lines than Procreate does for me. It’s less overwhelming than Procreate. I love Procreate but I use MediBang a lot more for my drawing. I love their brush engine on the iPad. I love the look and feel of their brushes and it’s a lot simpler to use. Procreate just has too many options.... can an app be too customizable? Anyway, I recommend this app to anyone coming from paint tool sai. It’s like a mobile version with how similar it feels. The bonus? I can start on my laptop and move to iPad, which I often do because I find I enjoy drawing on iPad more. I look forward to seeing how much further MediBang can go on the iPad. I hope they develop it further. It’s free and it’s worth it. I love it so much that I’d actually pay real money for a subscription if they ever offer it. Because development takes money. I’d love to see MediBang go further on all platforms. Five stars for a clean, simple, and easy to use drawing app. I’ve tried all the popular favorites so when I say MediBang wins, it wins!
Good and bad with new update
It saves a lot slower, video ads might be contributing to that a bit. Either way I really don’t like the addition of video ads. For some reason one of the updates turned the app I had on my tablet into the phone app, which caused a lot of problems, including my inability to update the app without uninstalling and re-installing it, which led me to have to put every single one of my pieces to the cloud, which took hours. Not only due to how many files I had and their sizes, but primarily because it already takes super long to upload even one piece to the cloud. And that also applies to just saving changes to and closing it. This is the main reason why I didn’t already have all my art in the cloud. Now there’s the new premium membership version that we all knew was inevitable, and I would buy it if I was sure my main problems would be fixed instead of some flashy new features like a reference board and custom textures. I’m still giving this a 4/5 because this is still the best free art app I've found and the good definitely outweighs the bad. Just, please fix these glaring issues that have come up as well as the old ones. I would probably buy the “creative pack” if those were fixed.
New Update Broke it 😞
I was sitting at the kitchen counter today playing Minecraft with my little brother when I decided that I wanted to do some art. I didn’t feel in the mood to do any watercolor/acrylic paintings or clay, so I thought; “what the heck, why not do some digital art!😝” So I got ready having it in my mind to make some art for a book I’m writing (“Dancing in the Snow”, which you can find on Quotev, for any Naruto fans🤓) but then, the worst thing happens 😫..... I click on the app, to which it starts updating. So I’m like; “ooooo! An update (maybe there’s some new brushes or something)” but NOPE. Once it’s done updating, I tap the app, fully ready for any new cool things. It opens, but before it can even start loading (when the little blue bar thingie pops up), it kicks me out of the app! I click on it again, kicks me out! I’ve tried swiping the apps, opening it through the App Store, practically everything I can do, (I even tried updating my iPad itself!) But ofc, it kicks me out! 😢 I really like this app, and I’ve made tons of cool art I don’t want to loose! 😩please fix this! I really don’t want to stop doing digital art! Before this update everything was perfect! 😥 but not anymore 😣 I hope you can fix this,
