Ratings and Reviews
Makes friggin sense
Coming from photoshop, this app was so quick to learn and is so satisfyingly similar to the PC version. You literally don’t miss out on anything that you get on the PC version. Been wanting to switch completely to using my iPad only. This is the kind of app that makes that happen
The best art app for iPads - has a ton of functionality, no layer limit well priced and supports easy syncing and backing up to iCloud. The alternative art apps have layer limits no easy cloud backups and less functionality
work for a solid hour... wasted.
it’s a good app. if you’re in a creative state of mind, it’s an excellent one. however, i can’t help but feel slightly cheated by the fact that the art i had been working on for plus-minus an hour vanished without me even closing this app.
even though the ‘save’ button is there, and i should’ve made use of it — this remains a problem. i hadn’t even closed CLIP STUDIO PAINT for my illustration to disappear. and i could not even retrieve it, because it wasn’t my own design to delete it.
other apps take you right back to where you started if you happened to leave. this one just takes your art.
[ and the saddest thing is; it recalls the paint colors i used to create the artwork, but not the art itself. ]
