Best App you'll use!

Dear readers and future costumers,
As a reviewer and rater I rate this five stars. First it's amazing! You can make pretty artwork and honestly it makes you artwork look likes it's about to go in the gallery. Second, there is a sketches community so you can look at others beautiful artwork. You can make folders for your work! It's only my first day and I have made ten beautiful bold drawings! Third, they help you use tools such as watercolor, paint brush, and much more by creating videos for the tutorials. They feature other apps which I think is brilliant. Fourth, there are fun daily activities you can draw! For me I'm not much of a artist but now I look like a masterpiece artist. This is why I named this review the best app you'll ever use! Thanks for your service and stay safe! I love sharing artwork with the nation! Also, they now let you have a stylist pen you can buy and draw with for the app! It's amazing! Buy this! I'm not much of a drawer but this is the best app ever and it makes me look like a pro at art! Love this and five star rating app!
Forever yours,

My favorite drawing app, but it’s getting frustrating

I’ve had this app for a few years now, and I recently purchased the pro version. At first I loved it- the wide range of new tools and mechanics seemed to be worth the relatively low cost, but lately the app has been getting increasingly glitchy. Most of my problems stem from the layers, as I’ve seen a couple of other people mention. Every now and then, whenever I was working on a particularly large project, I’d get a warning about there being too many layers. Usually I’d merge or delete some and move on, but as of late I’ve been getting this message even with only a few layers, and when I do try and do something about it, it ends up doing strange things to my work (deleting something on one layer and replacing it with what I tried to get rid of, redrawing things I erased when I try to resume working, filling random layers in completely black and then backing up so that I can’t undo it, just to name a few). This kind of thing has started happening even without a layer warning. I’ve tried looking up anything I could do to fix it, but the most common response I could find was to download the latest version of the app, which as far as I can tell I’ve done. I love this platform, but I can’t handle worrying every moment about whether or not my hours of work will be ruined without warning.

Things need to be fixed

For when Sketches updates, they are always bug fixes. Nothing is actually fixed. When I got pro, I wanted to check out the community. It wasn’t there, then I went to the section that said daily activities. Found the community, with a blue background instead of white. Also, none of the pictures would load. I am typing this a day after I got pro, so I tried several times. Before I got pro, I liked to visit the community. Some people complained about their drawings being randomly deleted. All of these things need to be fixed.

Edit: I have fixed my problem, I simply deleted, reinstalled and restored my purchase. I can now see the community! People complaining about their art being deleted is due to being reported, yet almost everyone’s art, I see no reason to report it. I did all this without contacting developers, as I knew I could figure out the solution. Thanks, Tayasui(?) Sketches for being my favorite drawing app:)

Edit 2: Tayasui is my favorite art app, but guess what? I went to eat, then no community. I don’t really care about pro, but at least I experienced it. You can already get gradients, more layers, and more without pro. Still, Tayasui is my favorite app, even though it has problems.
