I hate it
cheesecake_ha on 10/15/2017
I hate it everything I press doesn't work when I did it before
Want to make a fansign for your slime instagram👇👇
a very satiysfied person on 10/12/2017
I totally recommend this app for beginners in making fansigns.Lots of big accounts on instagram use this,but this is the EASIEST app to use once you know all the tools.
Super laggy
Nr890@&$ on 10/12/2017
When I try to draw a straight line or a curved line it just puts little dots and separates the line.This app can’t keep up with me drawing.
Possible bug
Masta_Tubby on 10/12/2017
I like this app, great stuff, it tends to lag when zooming in/out but that may be just my iPad, but anyway you know the transform feature, how you can move a drawing in a layer, it selects my item, but it selects a bunch of white space. Say you make 2 squares in two different places, then you erase one and transform the other, when transforming the square gets selected but also the area where the square used to be. So I go and erase whatever is in the area, which there is nothing in the area, but when you transform it it still selects blank space, I’m not sure it’s a bug
Romance and Dance on 10/10/2017
The app is great but on iphone it tends to crash after a while
Keyyiaa on 10/8/2017
I will highly recommend this app ! I never get let down ! Everything you need is at your finger tips
Very Diappointed
DragonStorm7 on 10/7/2017
Have been a very long time loyal user of Photoshop which is why I liked PS Touch on the iPAD especially since I no longer have a computer. Since you dumped Touch it I can no longer play with images like I use to. I miss all the features that were in PS Touch. There is no cut and paste, posterize and many other effects are absent as well. All this is is a drawing app for artists. I need a app like REAL Photoshop not this and no one seems to have one.
Amazing 😮
Bro vibes comments on 10/6/2017
I've had this for months and I still can't stop using it 👌👍🏻😍😍😍
resizing and saving.
darci. on 10/5/2017
Whenever I zoom out or into an image it saves in a different size, this gets especially annoying when I have to crop and the quality is effected.
Can't color
xavier-burns on 10/4/2017
Shape Snap
CRod(again) on 10/1/2017
Guys, I really do love the app, I have to rate two stars to bring to your attention. Please, the shape snapping, specifically the circle. I get why it snaps to a perfect circle, but it snaps to these specific ovals, and I can't get the in betweens. It's extremely frustrating.
Needs work...
Brokik86 on 9/30/2017
I like the app initially but there are things that baffle me that aren’t supported, such as... - larger canvas’ for print based work with USEABLE ppi density (poster size at 150ppi isn’t cutting it) - better brush control. Other apps like Procreate run circles around what you can get out of a brush. - ACTUAL CURVES AND A PEN TOOL. can’t stress this one enough. Apps liKe Autodesk Graphic (Which hasn’t even had a decent update in a while) successfully give you a proper vector experience with a real pen tool. Brushes in here are interesting, but the whole package would work better with the tool that made illustrator king in the first place. - allowing for projects created on mobile platform, (draw and sketch) to be editable in either program would be HUGE. I don’t want to have a flattened version of my work by reference-able in Sketch, I need it to be FULLY EDITABLE
Terrible App 😑 on 9/30/2017
I used to love it & have did a many cartoons with it but not it keeps freezing everytime I try to zoom out. It only stared happening when u updated. Pleas fix for 5 stars
Essey123 on 9/28/2017
This game should be meant for people All ages until then I won't be downloading this game,And I love to draw!!
I love it
Beautiful blessing. 🔮 on 9/28/2017
I like the app TBH i like all of adobes products It would be better if I knew how to do more than just basic stuff So I have to go on YouTube to get extra help
Love it
Tmpusrx on 9/25/2017
I love this product, I would love it even more if there was a way to add text since it’s a bit difficult to draw on the phone
Adobe must be paying for good reviews
garbuhj on 9/24/2017
- because this app is terrible. There are literally no editing tools. There literally isn't even a selection tool!
Please fix issue
Steven Caro on 9/24/2017
The app was working completely fine until this most recent update. Now for some reason is I try moving a layer, the app just crashes. Hopefully they’ll fix this soon enough
It is NOT possible to drag and drop layers.
Jouluq on 9/24/2017
It is NOT possible to drag and drop layers. Simply press-hold-drag-and-drop and you will see how you waste your time!
Great start to drawing app
Jim Wesley on 9/23/2017
Really easy, intuitive, and good integration with Adobe tools. It will grow more powerful with the integration of some easy features like Selection, Text, and Gradients. But this keeps complication to a minimum while we adapt to the revolution of mobile app art. I've also had some trouble with registration shift between layers but only at the super detail level (zoomed in to highest level).
Good App
MMUNCHIES on 9/23/2017
Now I can draw what I want
Saving Drawings as Pictures
YoBoySkinnyP on 9/22/2017
I hate having to adjust the view of my drawing so that it gets saved correctly in my photos. Sometimes only part of the drawing is there. Other times, the picture includes the unnecessary stuff outside the boundaries of my picture...
Awesome but Some Concerns
Gotta Fix The Game on 9/22/2017
So I love this app because is very easy to use and has many options to it but theres some things that should definitely be added! First off There should be an easier and much better way to shade so maybe a water color utensil should be added which could be much useful! Another concern of mine is that I don't know how to delete or move around my libraries which I need and want to keep organize so unless its just a really hidden feature it should be added! On last thing is that whenever I fill in something with color all the time I see these really thin lines around where I filled it in and that really bugs me and Makes it look like it has a white thin outline and thats not what I want so please help me out here and add feature to fix these problems thanks!
You can do it all!
Daisybearlo on 9/21/2017
I'm having so much fun coloring & drawing on this app! There are so many things you can do on this app & the possibilities are endless!
thnderhrse on 9/20/2017
Could not recommend less. I keep wanting to use this and for it to work. It is a gimmick that gives Adobe a chance to say that they have a Mobile presence. I can’t imagine how this useful in anyone’s workflow. As a doodling app it’s okay, but sending files to .Ai is worthless. First, it only goes one way. Second, the image imported is basically [image traced]. No stokes. No objects. I can not stress enough, “What is the functional purpose of this app!” Could not recommend less.
The best app
FunnyBunny805 on 9/19/2017
This is the best app to use for drawing
xkalueg on 9/18/2017
I love this app so much, it helps me improve my skills as an artist and has made me appreciate all types and forms of digital art. It's great for anyone even if you know nothing about digital art, it's easy to use and you'll catch on quickly and have lots of fun!
It's pretty good but
Monkeybatter on 9/18/2017
I know of drawing apps with more brush variety. It doesn't measure up that way. Also it keeps crashing on me when I zoom in to do detail work.
Love it
Sara grant dolan on 9/17/2017
It really helps me with my fan art
no blend!
Reviewer of apps😉 on 9/17/2017
I love this app and everything about it, but the one thing about it really, really needs is a blending tool. I know many people that have stopped using this app when they figured out there was no blending tool. I continue to use it but have such a hard time blending colors without a tool.
Not as robust as Photoshop, has limits
BubbaGumpy69 on 9/14/2017
I'm just beginning in it and find that it has drawbacks
Layers & folders
Juliet606 on 9/13/2017
It would be perfect if you can have more layers AND folders! I like to keep my work organized.
cookiedogguyyeah on 9/12/2017
😻💁🏿 on 9/11/2017
It won't let me fill in my pictures and it's sooo annoying!
Great app
Minnie Mouse4 on 9/11/2017
It's a good app to make a picture as a cartoon or to just draw i just don't like that if I draw on my laptop and go back on my phone to use the app it won't open some drawings I drew on my laptop but overall it is a great app.
Bertha Matilda Ranchhouse on 9/10/2017
Never works correctly.
Amazing I've started a drawing career and I'm really good at it
Snow feud your on 9/9/2017
It's awesome I love it
It's ok
Purple husky1015 on 9/9/2017
It's fine
Amazing !
Hannah Hinkle on 9/9/2017
I think this app is amazing, I can really draw some things with it! I feel like this app should have a blending tool though :( but otherwise great app !
Logictm on 9/8/2017
This app was great but now its just so buggy it keeps on freezing every time i get on.
Limited Layer Cap, overall Great app
Ixion The Ghost on 9/7/2017
This app for me is fantastic but I find that I'm almost -always- finding myself limited by the limitation of how many layers I can use or when merging layers where one layer is on multiply and the one merging down to is normal for example, the multiply layer effect is INSTANTLY lost and the merged layer just looks like the layer with the normal look. There's also the lack of better control when wanting to rotate a layer, no ability to link layers to move/rotate all at once just in case orientation of applied effects needs to be adjusted. There are times I'm trying to rotate a layer and end up resizing it. -_-; Overall I enjoy the app and it is my go to for random doodles. Just needs better control, no limit on the number of layers we can create, the ability to select, copy and paste custom selections in a later, more brushes O_O NEED MORE BRUSHES! So for that I had to dock a star. Still super happy with the app though. Keep up the good work guys and gals! Hope to see more advancement for the app in the future.
Kristina M Chaney on 9/7/2017
I'm partial about this app. It gets frustrating when I go to fill and it doesn't want to fill. Another annoying feature is the fact almost every time my hand bumps it adds a mark. Maybe add a pencil only option?
Emanart on 9/6/2017
Great tool for illustration
Good app!
KBERMUDEZ11 on 9/6/2017
Really good app but is there anyway y'all can add gradient colors!
Than you
leforeignpapi on 9/6/2017
Just to get some likes on 9/6/2017
MacawCib on 9/6/2017
Awesome app. Loving this on my iPad Pro, but one thing if this is illustrator why is it missing the real pen tool. I think it would one benefit users with out Apple Pencil and really help others who don't have access to full computer version of illustrator. I do get this is not "illustrator" per say but still would like to have pen tool on the go, maybe another app adobe. Great job though, now I'm making some nice art cooooool beans!
Pixyfoo on 9/5/2017
This is a great app, i love drawing! I have a suggestion. Why not have the eraser also have the capacity like the brush? Would you add that? Then it would be almost a perfect app!
It's making many people money!
poohwiththereview on 9/5/2017
Many people use this app to make cartoons it's the exact thing and only thing I use it for...but the brushes should be updated just a tad.But not bad you earned yourself 5 stars, Great Job!
Great free drawing app... needs colour picker though!!
Ersonotopic on 9/5/2017
I might be missing it but this is the first time I've not been able to use a colour picker in a drawing app... if that was included this would be ace!
