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,

I used to use this app to make most of my art until it updated and got rid of the community. The features are fine mostly, sometimes if there are too many layers it will crash. I don't know about others experiences but its always saved my work when it crashed. Now it doesn't have the community and you have to pay for more things? I had Sketches Pro before it updated so maybe I just didn't have to I guess? Also I noticed Pro is more expensive now, also not cool. And the community thing, I understand it was difficult to moderate but it was a safe community with simple features and not a lot of ways to give negative comments on others work. People mostly just had art contests and complimented each others work if there were any interactions between users at all. It's on instagram now, but most people who used the community aren't on there. Most people who used it weren't even allowed on instagram. So while I appreciate the updates to tools, I miss the simplicity and positivity of the community. If you do manage to improve the features enough to a point where you can put in the effort to bring back the community, please do because I think me and a lot of others would appreciate it.

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.

Developer Response ,

Best Regards and sincere apologies for the trouble,
