What’s New

Version 1.3

New features for iPhone X, XR, XS:
— Home Bar hides after a delay when Trace Table is locked.
— Home Bar and Control Center gestures now take two swipes to open, so you're less likely to do them on accident while drawing!
— All new camera in full-screen glory!
— Camera pics now load full-screen too, but can still be resized however you would like.
— Improved brightness tracking — fixed a bug where sometimes the screen wasn't the brightest it could be, or didn't return to your previous brightness when the app closed.

Incredibly useful

Several great features. You can lock (and unlock) the image with one click so you don’t move the image around when you try to trace. Yes, iOS has a feature to lock the screen (I have been using it) but it is much more cumbersome to use than this app. You can also reorient your image (horizontally to vertical etc.) just using your fingers to rotate. Yes, you can do this in iOS also, but again, much more cumbersome to do. Lastly, one click switches your image to a line drawing, again making it much easier to trace. Well worth the small fee.

Brilliant and useful

This is a great idea! You can take pictures or upload pictures then lock them to trace right off your phone or iPad. Saves time. With thick paper you can still make out the overall structure of the picture. Helpful for watercolor sketching to get the idea right without spending too much time and losing the moment. Thanks for making this!

Now I can trace on iPad

Before I got this app I would open a photo that was mostly white space, but it always giggled around or would close when trying to draw. Then I searched, how to use iPad as a trace box and found out that 'there's an app for that'. This app works perfect. Thank you very much. Well worth 99cents too, as a small stand alone light box could cost twent in thirty bucks.
