Feedback on the update..
♥️ First off, this is a beautiful watercolor simulation app (in case people were not aware). I hope that never changes. This last update did however increase the “dry pattern” texture after one touches the wet to dry droplet tool while using the water color brush. Although the new dried pattern is very random and textured nicely, it’s a bit more intense in areas that make it harder to blend out because the blender tool doesn’t size down (just a bit too large, desperately needs to be resizable). I really loved the former water color dried pattern because it was so subtle after drying. It only needed minor blending. If we could choose between strong and subtle dry patterns that would be awesome. I hope we can get that subtle water color pattern back, it’s highly missed. Again both texture options would be ideal and a resizable blender tool.
Thanks for a beautiful app.. I use several of the best design/media simulation apps as art is my profession. This app is among the best, I’m always using it. ❤️🥰

This is a pretty chill game. You got your different tools, you got your layers, you got an unlimited color palette to choose from, and a way for you to share your creations. I’ve have this app for a while now and I just adore how simple yet intricate it is. Usually when I get an app to draw on, its usually setup to be too intricate or not intricate enough—and this app finally provides a nice middle ground between the two. I love this app to death, and sure the paywall is kind of ridiculous but how else are companies supposed to expect a free app to make funds out of it. There is just one flaw in this app that has nothing to do with its setup or lack of layering system <cough cough>, but with one of the tools.
Whenever I try to use the “scissor” tool to move certain objects in my drawing around, it somehow glitches, multiplies the area I selected, and distorts said region. Its almost impossible for any digital artist to live without this tool so I don’t understand why this issue has not been accounted for yet. I am not aware if I am the only one experiencing this, but this problem has become very annoying and made the chill times I had with this app very mediocre. I hope that this problem gets fixed soon in the next update.
A decent drawing app
I have been to using this app for as long as it has been out. I have learned new techniques and developed an art style for myself. But over time the app became more difficult to do more detailed drawings on. Whenever I try to do any detailed drawings something always goes wrong. Recently, I had been working on a drawing for the past three days and my app started crashing every so often. I knew the reason why was because I had too many layers so I went and merged a few layers together. Usually this fixes the problem at least somewhat but the app still crashed, and eventually it got to the point where I couldn't even open the drawing without it crashing. On top of that there are various bugs for example, your smallest size for the pen is increased from 1.4 to 2.6 as soon as you select the eraser. The only way to fix this problem is to restart the app and so it becomes very difficult to do rough sketches or do fine details in drawings. This app is great to do simple and quick drawings on, but if you plan on doing anything more than that you are going to be met with frustration and disappointment.
