"ProtoSketch puts the "Pro" in iPad Pro!"
"Beautiful design in a thoughtful package."
"One of the best design tools you have to try in 2016"

- Made with lots of LOVE by designers for designers!
- The iPad is not a PC. ProtoSketch wasn't adapted from a desktop app. It was created from the ground up exclusively for iPad. Our workflow is different - we have dedicated ALT, SHIFT and REPEAT buttons and all the commands relative to your selection appear as buttons on the bounding box. We call them shortcuts because they work as keyboard shortcuts on your PC.
-The app works beautifully with Apple Pencil you can draw, sketch and concept your ideas. But hey nothing will stop you from finishing your idea and polishing it to perfection. Proto has all the tools you need.
- AGILE, we are doing constant updates, enriching your experience and adding new features.
- HUGE ROADMAP, there is a lot of stuff ahead better vector tools, a mac app, prototyping, real-time collaboration and more...
- EXCELLENT Support, send us feedback on fb, tw and via email. We'd love to chat :)

Hands down the most beautifully designed vector app I've come across. Believe me when I say I've used a lot of them. In the past The best I've found have been designed in a utilitarian fashion. Not so much here. BEAUTIFUL. Sure, it has a few issues all have. Does Not seem to play well (at all) with the "open in" or "open with" extensions. Worth the $8.99

Great bones but huge functionality flaw

I adore this app for one thing, it is the ONLY one I have found that has the functions I need to use it for line art. I have found any vector apps that either allow you to draw paths with a pen and then add strokes/effect in such way to use for line art or let you draw with different brushes but then edit the paths. I would love to see the feature added that would allow adding different brushstrokes to paths, but at least with this program I can use the pressure sensitive brush and then edit the path.
Biggest flaw is that the export or “open in”/“open with” process almost never works. I’ve done every format and method of exporting and i have to do it about ten times to get one file successfully exported and so far the only method that has worked was putting in Dropbox as a png. Everything else goes through the flow as if it’s completed but the file never actually shows up. Certainly makes using it for my line art a lot harder. And it seems like this has been a problem since it’s inception and has yet to be addressed. I really REALLY hope this gets fixed.

importing photos no longer works in iPad IOS 13

Importing photos in Protosketch no longer works for iPad IOS 13 the latest. Says it can't finf them although i have permissions turned on in settings. This is crucial for me, can you please do an update? Some of the other things about importing symbols does not work but only oartially & often selects the wrong image either. Although the layers menu is there, the navigation doesn't fully work, visible invisible only works once & then freezes. Sorry about my posting here but there seems no other way to contact you. Please fix - otherwise a fantastic app. i fdo see i can save but first you have to allow photo to access - but it still doen't work for importing.
