Adobe sketch
by Nim62 on 2020/09/22 23:08
The app is great. A smudge tool would help. Also is there a way to match colors in a Painting. Also the brushes do not go beyond 200 pixels. Is there a way to increase pixels?

Image Layer
by Nynjamaica on 2020/09/22 18:32
Absolutely love it, but for reason I can’t add an image layer. Hopefully this can be fixed.
Account requirements ruin the experience
by tisch809 on 2020/09/22 18:18
I just want to create, but Adobe gets in the way of its own software, as usual. This is actually a pretty good art app that I know I will never use, which is disappointing.
I Am in love with this app!
by AerinOfTheWolf on 2020/09/19 16:06
Ever since I got this logi pen I have been drawing on here like, 24/7 and I am Obsessed! If you are reading this you should definitely get this app! :-)

Storage issue
by Babybull2 on 2020/09/10 10:06
I love this app and have had no real problems with it until this last week where I am told there is not enough storage space to open my work but I check storage and I’ve only used 16% of 2GB. So one of these pieces of information has to be wrong and I have to figure out which. I’m working towards being able to afford Adobe photoshop and Adobe InDesign, but if I can’t finish my projects on this app that all gets delayed! I wish you wouldn’t abandon this app as it really shows how well you design your pro apps and takes the terror out of working on art in apps instead of on paper.
Awesome

Amazing
by SYCA inc. on 2020/08/21 01:46
It’s one of the best drawing apps that’s available and to top it off it’s free. I’ve been wanting to do digital art for a while now and since I’m only 12 I can’t really do what I want in order to get certain art apps. So I think it’s one of the best apps that you’ll ever come across.
I live IT
by ⚾️😜🐶❤️🇺🇸 on 2020/08/19 22:31
So cool I can’t wait to do more
It needs some work
by _____🌇 on 2020/08/14 17:56
Overall it’s a good app and I like that it’s free but I have some things that are annoying and should be fixed. 1. It’s really annoying that you can’t blend anything which makes it pretty hard to draw people (and other things where you need to blend colors or make something fade) and 2. I hate how you can do the undo button just by sliding two fingers to the left because I’m always trying to zoom in or out and it just keeps undoing my last action. Is there a way to turn this off or get rid of it? It makes it super hard to draw in detail. 3. It would be nice to be able to zoom in more. You can already spoon in more but there was a picture I was coloring and it wouldn’t let me zoom in any more so I couldn’t do it in detail. I don’t mean to complain or anything because it’s actually a good app and it’s super cool how you can draw on your pictures (I’ve made some super cool ones) I would just like it if these things could be fixed. Thank you!!! 😁
Hands Down my favorite drawing app
by Yeeekid on 2020/08/12 08:12
I’ve used alot of the popular drawing applications, and I can say Adobe is by far my favorite. Super user friendly, yet I am still finding new features I didn’t know existed. 9.8/10 experience from me
great! but
by nugget_sauce on 2020/08/10 02:35
this is pretty good! but my only problem is that there isn’t a cropping feature or redoing :( and some stuff functions weirdly

Tool Display Issues When Multitasking on iPad Pro
by Glassblower 45 on 2020/08/03 02:59
Great app. I’m just trying to send feedback about how it works when multitasking on an iPad Pro. While the app allows me to have a second window on the same screen—like internet browsing, YouTube or whatnot—there is a display issue when I try to change colors for the brushes. The entirety of the sub-screen does not display properly or change colors as I want it to. The problem disappears if I have the app using the entirety of the screen. However, I really want to continue using the app as normal while multitasking with live tools or entertainment on the same screen. If the app allows me to multitask on an iPad Pro, then I would like to be able to use the app fully without a bug that forces me to use the app in full screen mode to continue working on my sketch projects.
This is amazing

Fantastic for semi technical use
by db@GFD on 2020/07/25 18:47
I use sketch to break down areas for landscaping design. It is better stored than pen and paper versions. We use CAD when not rough estimates. I’ve seem the gorgeous artwork created in it too. Maybe someday I’ll get there.
Ok...
by Sonoman3d on 2020/07/21 19:45
I kinda wish that they had more brush options and the lines could be a little more smoother.... other than that it’s okay I guess...
AMAZING!!!!!!!
by lydia de blaeij on 2020/07/19 16:22
This app is totally amazing! I love it so much. It has everything I need to do fashion illustrations and things like that. I love how you can look at what other people are doing and get inspiration. I love the tools and the way that you can use different layers! I totally recommend this app is soooooooo amazing!!!
Needs an eyedropper tool
by MendesTM on 2020/07/18 04:55
But that’s about it
Lacks basic functionality
by helloabakkus on 2020/07/15 23:26
While I love the concept of a lightweight version of photoshop’s brush engine for portable drawing, the execution is poor. A terrible default pressure curve (I have to press so hard it feels like my Apple Pencil is going to break to get anything other than a feather-light line with my imported brushes) with no ability to edit it other than manually reworking every single brush you have individually, plus no option to flip your canvas make this a hard pass for me.
Excellent app!
by kitteh mowlol on 2020/07/14 22:50
I’ve been using this app for awhile now and I say it’s excellent! A little hard to understand if you just got it but you get the hang of it!
great

Keeps Crashing
by thatcindyrella on 2020/07/10 11:14
It was working perfectly fine for the past couple of weeks until recently. It now crashes every time I attempt to launch it on my iPad mini 2. iOS is up to date and so is the app.
Good for what it does

Issues
by Sgtu007 on 2020/07/07 19:09
The app is great but size just went up to 450 and I can’t fix it
really good for a free app!
by this is trish? on 2020/07/05 17:06
it’s my first time doing digital art and I enjoyed the experience. the only problem that I have is that there is no fill in feature. like a feature where a shape you draw can be filled in with a color. this is a pretty basic feature that I think could be easily added. But overall my experience was really good and I did it using my iPhone and finger :)
Keeps crashing
by nickysonbo on 2020/07/04 11:12
Not bad but it keeps crashing otherwise 5 stars
Deleted. My. Document.
by allusernamesare_taken_1_2 on 2020/07/03 02:53
I don’t know what happened, but after 6 hours of working on a project for school. It. Deleted. My. Work. And. Wasn’t. Recoverable. Lol. That should probably be fixed. Being able to recover documents is a simple service on every app. Or at least seeing the history. Not sure why this one would be different. Very disappointed. Wasted a whole lot of time with this app.
Almost perfect for my needs.
by toosketchy on 2020/07/02 14:52
Would have given it 5 stars but I can’t figure out how to rotate an image without accidentally changing the size. The two finger turning is too hard to keep accurate. There should be a way to lock an image size and rotate it so that the size isn’t accidentally changed and to rotate while pinning it in the center. But for sketching and painting l love it!

Medical illustrations with ease
by PeabodyDVM on 2020/06/26 13:40
This app allows me to easily create numerous anatomical illustrations with or without a photo, and I appreciate how the images export into Photoshop with layers intact, so I can do my final editing on my laptop. I use this app more than any other on my iPad.
The only app I’ll use!
by msdaniellesummers on 2020/06/23 12:46
I love Adobe Sketch!! It’s awesome you guys are still doing bug fixes cause while I would like to use fresco, it’s not supported on my iPad mini 2! Thanks for making this app, it is so seamless and I adore the brushes. It’s also the only drawing app I’ve tried that doesn’t have a cluttered mess of a layout! Please never remove this app I would be lost without it
Good, but wish I could sync between iOS and Android
by rae.and.my.art on 2020/06/22 22:59
This is fun, and I like the different features and pen/brushes/ color options. Only complaint is that I can’t sync between my iOS phone and Samsung tab B.

Adobe Sketch
by ddbd ie on 2020/06/18 17:27
I love Adobe Sketch because you can do almost anything that includes art. It’s so much fun too. Even my friend wants to try it out! The amazing thing is, you can never run out of ideas to use Adobe with !! Once I start, I can’t stop having fun with Adobe Sketch!!!!!!! The possibilities are endless! You can draw or color whatever you want! They even let you download pictures to trace and color! I haven’t explored everything yet but I know for a fact that everything will be SUPER DUPER FUN!!! I give Adobe Sketch as many stars as possible! Thank you, Alina
For the creators of Adobe Sketch
by FlipaStick Anims on 2020/06/11 20:05
I love Adobe Sketch so much! It is a great Drawing-app. I’m drawing animals just like the toys my brother and I play with most of the time. Names of the toys: Rosie, Lulu, Ooba, Cherry, and a lot more. I am having an awesome time with this app! I hope you have an awesome day just like my sweet family.

Great for Apple Pencil
by Robolasersnail on 2020/06/08 07:25
Works great with Apple Pencil, literally learned how to draw using this app.
This is a great app
by j1@3 on 2020/06/07 17:06
I have been drawing for a while and thought it would be cool to draw digitally, so I got a Apple Pencil and this app. If you are a artist that is looking for a simple drawing app, then get this app. If you are looking for a app that allows you to draw with greater quality and detail, then I recommend a app like procreate or something.
OMG!!!
by hhfrujjjy on 2020/06/05 21:35
Coolest app ever
Only one complaint.
by Tessa Pace on 2020/06/04 23:15
I just wish you could blend your colors together
Fantastic but lowers the quality of my work
by Legosabine101 on 2020/06/04 04:18
If I adjust my work (make it closer or farther back on the digital canvas), or if I add a new sketch layer, or do pretty much ANYTHING, it makes my line work or smudges go from pretty HD and clear, to lower quality blurred and pixels. It’s really annoying that this can’t be adjusted when I go to download the image to my photo gallery either (change the resolution quality), and I can only zoom in partially because the quality was lowered when I save the final version. This is the only thing that bothers me, and it bothers me enough to make me buy a drawing app like everyone else.
Ok
by a ann r on 2020/06/02 18:10
I think this app is amazing but you can’t really blend or smear. I would give it a 4 1/2 but it doesn’t have that option.
How good it is
by Erin90284 on 2020/06/02 16:08
I think it’s good except it’s a bit confusing about the paint brushes and the water color when you use it it spreads all over the paper

This game is sooooooo fun! It has everything you need to make a beautiful picture. It has plenty of tools and instead of different shades pre-made, it has a color palette so you can find just the right shade. I would highly recommend this game for young and old artists. Long story short, download this app!🤩🤩🤩
This is amazing

If your trying to sketch or draw anything this is the app for you.
This is the Best App
by Horror village on 2020/05/29 04:33
This app is amazing I have been looking for a sketch app and came across this one. It is completely free and no ads. It is really easy to learn and very fun to draw on.
This app is much easier to use than Fresco
by Syao913 on 2020/05/27 21:46
I am not switching to Fresco, Adobe must keep Sketch. Thank you.
Used to work well

by jebcudbh on 2020/05/25 02:48
I love, love this app. Have for some time. But today when I connected to WiFi it logged me out and ERASED EVERY SINGLE PIECE I HAD SAVED. I have lost so much work, I am devastated. I warn you to not be as trusting of this app like I was, back up your work somewhere this app is NOT a safe place to do it.

Can’t use unless you create an account through Adobe
by Ninkendo84 on 2020/05/19 18:36
This app used to just work to make sketches, now I can’t use it until I give Adobe all my personal information. This isn’t something people should have to put up with.
I love it
by toolipic on 2020/05/17 23:12
So this lets me draw anything I want and it’s amazing I love it so much like much!!
Great for on the go, but orientation & UI
by JJMan8604 on 2020/05/17 18:12
I use an iPhone 7, and it’s great for on the go, and I know it’s optimized for iPads, but just a little iPhone support would be nice, but my 2 main issues are, 1) I can’t change the orientation of the app, making it really difficult to do landscape, and no, I don’t have Orientation lock on, and 2) I know you can press the two arrows to hide the UI, but it would be better if we had the option to tap the side of the screen to quickly bring up the pen/brush menu and quick collapse it, would make using multiple colors/brushes much easier.
GET THIS, NOT FRESCO!
by QueenScarletoftheSkyWings on 2020/05/17 17:24
I got this app, then I got Fresco. I like Fresco better, but Fresco said my cloud was full, and Sketch did not. I LOVE SKETCH! And by the was do not get Autodesk Sketchbook or Fresco.
Awesome

A few things to say
by I_read_a_lot on 2020/05/15 21:37
I wish that there was a fill bucket to use and that there is a blender. I also think that the eraser should be able to erase the image too. Other than that, it’s a good app.
Much better than fresco
by Jtojerio on 2020/05/14 14:51
Not sure how adobe expects fresco to replace photoshop sketch when their usability is so different. This app is simple and perfect for true sketch artist.
Wow
by Caasssiiee on 2020/05/13 22:48
This is one of the literal best drawing apps I have ever used- and you can make your own brushes with one of the other apps. Very impressed with it in general. I do wish I could mess with the strokes inside of layers but that is definitely pushing it for a free app haha. But it’s definitely so great!

by Hannabannabanana on 2020/05/10 23:26
Dear developers, I absolutely love this app, I just started off drawing. One thing I do not understand is why there are so many apps, lol. There are just way too many apps and to have a certain feature, you need to download this app and this app. It would be nice to have all features on one app, like the “fill in” feature, it would be very useful. But, this app is really great and handy.
This app is good but....
by themegafart on 2020/05/10 05:54

Amazing app! Just one thing I *need* to be added
by Car-t-aye on 2020/05/05 20:41
Hey, Adobe!! Before I say Anything I wanna say, The app is great! I can finally download brushes for deviant art on iOS! It’s overall amazing! However. There has been so many problems with the “limited layers” situation for me. I’m trying to animate a drawing of mine, but I can’t because there’s 4 of tentacles which each go on different layers, a head, eyeliners , eyes whitenings, pupils, a body, both arms (on different layers) and both legs which again, go on different layers. if you could add unlimited layers of Them it would be a whole lot less stuff to worry about. This goes for me and all the other people who struggle with this. Thank you so much for a wonderful app
Great app, but some suggestions
by kachionyeka7 on 2020/05/05 18:38
The app is great! Really love the time lapse feature as well the time saving feature. The additional brushes are also great too. Would love if there was a lasso tool to correct some mistakes on a sketch layer instead of having to duplicate the same layer and erase everything, and then having to adjust the layer (which doesn’t really help a lot of the times).
Good 👌🏼
by Amazing math app!! on 2020/05/01 16:51
I think it is a good app to draw and sketch things that you want. But, there is a glitch in it when you draw something with the ruler or any shape and you move it away it still draws the circle or triangle.
Fresco pop up is really annoying
by Fv-user on 2020/04/29 00:24
Especially when you have the Fresco app already. Its really not necessary to show it every time I open the app
Pretty good but...
by bcooldope on 2020/04/26 21:01
When I got the app it seemed pretty good. But one future that illustrator draw has is you hold down and it colors it in. But this app does not have it.
Awesome.

I sometimes scribble when im bored but this app helped me realize that i can kinda draw. It has a great interface and feel natural. The only problem i have with it is that there is no blend feature, but i can live with that. 10/10 app. Really reconmend
Really bad
by krazy kawaii on 2020/04/24 23:43
Ok this it’s not about the drawing materials but the storage my storage got full after one project which is sad cause this is a good app for drawing even though I removed the project it’s still saying I have no more space this is a frustrating issue that’s occurring constantly please fix this issue
Great app!
by littleacorn31 on 2020/04/23 16:33
This app is really great for artists just starting to draw digitally. It’s easy to get the hang of and has a lot of cool brushes. I was a little concerned when the newest update said that it wouldn’t be updated anymore because I love this app and use it all the time. I also really like the artists forum thing so please please PLEASE don’t get rid of the updates
The best

I haven’t used the app for a long time and when I opened it, I briefly saw all my drawings before being forced to log into my Adobe ID, which I then did not have access to my drawings afterwards. What a piece of crap.
not that great
by ternz r goowd on 2020/04/14 23:05
i was expecting to see an amazing art app, but when i realized how difficult it is to draw on this, i stopped using it. you need an apple pen to make it look like a picture, and there are no semetricals.
I’m Loving it. My Art drive is back 30+ years later..
by kevjles on 2018/08/17 01:27
Being a car nut since playing with HotWheels as a kid, My love for cars grew to model cars and eventually Art. After taking Art in JR High I spent hours sketching various cars which I loved but knew I could probably never obtain in real life. Years later headed to work with my prized Automotive Artwork to share with some Co-workers, a freak thunderstorm swept through my car and sucked all of my work out through the passenger window at 65mph and scattered it into a flooding river along the Highway. Lost forever I was immediately sickened knowing I had just watched every memory and piece of art I had created since grade school to that point in time blow right out of the window. This was way before Smart Phones, Apps and electronic storage. Fast forward to this year 2018 using my iPad Pro for work I discovered Adobe Sketch for field drawings and documentation of construction projects. Bored one night I decided to try to recapture my passion for art drawing a vintage VW Bus for a friend who heads up a world wide social media site using Adobe Sketch. After spending over 8 hours doing my first ever Full Color Rendering I posted it on the site. I immediately watched as the likes began to poor in. I’m now back in the world of art which I once Loved thanks to this Amazing tool called Adobe Sketch.. Many sincere thanks to the creators of this Amazing App.... Kevin Lesley , Kev~Rod Designs...
DEVELOPERS PLEASE READ It is good but...

I wish the both of the apps were combined having to go to separate apps all the time to draw different things is really annoying I wish there was a pencil in both of them I wish that the pens were in both of them really adobe I really wish you would just combine both of the apps by now i’m an artist I absolutely love your program it’s free it’s good I like it I just wish That you were combined both and also no smudge stick tool really... it’s really annoying that I can’t combine the colors I can’t have a good fade I know that your app is mostly meant for making logos but I really really wish you would combine both of the apps and add a smudge stick it’s really annoying that I can’t combine the colors or make the colors fade out So please for the love of God add a smudge stick but I genuinely love the watercolor brushes And please please just combined and the stupid apps If you read this developers thank you I know it’s really long but I genuinely want your app to be improved on. me and my mother both use this app and I love it it has a good system there’s layers all kinds of things I genuinely love it. it’s just I wish that you would do things that other things also do other free programs that are more crappy than you. you like one of the best free programs I’ve ever found please continue what you’re doing but please make some improvements and for the love of goodness add a Smudge stick! thank you for reading!
Blown away by the watercolor in this app
by sorchay on 2018/05/17 03:45
Kudos to whoever programmed the watercolor part of this app! This is my favorite painting app by far, and I’ve tried several including the most popular and paid art apps. What keeps me coming back (addicted!) to Adobe Sketch is the beautiful subtlety of how the paint interacts with the surface. Other apps can achieve fairly realistic edges and blending, but with my brush stylus and this app, I feel like I’m painting with watercolor, the way real watercolor works. I forget that I’m working in digital format because the tools seem to work the same way. The paper is “wet” at first and the paint interacts with it, spreads and dries down. Washes interact with each other, and the flow setting is so intuitive, works the same as deciding water to pigment ratio. This app is so realistic I even found myself instinctively lifting paint. Not erasing, but lifting with water just as I would in real life. Love the rest of the app too but I’m especially appreciative of the obvious care that went into the watercolor functions. Thanks! One wish: it would round out the experience if I could have a palette of preselected colors set out instead of choosing anew each time I change colors, but I get by with the color picker. It’s just a little slower than having key colors already “mixed” and at the ready while I paint.
Almost 5 star worthy, BUT.

Ok so let&#39;s start with the downs. Can&#39;t zoom in very much, needs few more starting brushes ( not that big of a deal ). And where you can put pictures in it so you can edit them, now I do not know a lot in this (I just know the basics so if there is a way I will probably find out soon). 😐😍 it&#39;s really good also because it has layers and I love the &#34; paint brush &#34; with the paint texture it&#39;s AMAZING definitely my favorite brush out of all of them I&#39;ve tried so far. If you could make the paint brush be able to be more fine/thin that would be great 👍🏻😃😄. I love this and I&#39;d say it&#39;s about 7 out of 10 compared to a general PC version. I think all it needs is a few tweaks to be one of the best ( maybe even the best ) photoshop/editing program on the App Store. This is probably the BEST photoshop type thing I&#39;ve tried besides sketch book ( another one for IOS App Store ). Overall this is great and I use it every day to improve my editing/ animation skills, I also like to do this as a hobby ( when I&#39;m bored ) or just for fun. 😄 ( edit ) Please make it so we can zoom in more... I animate on this and I love this app but I wish we could zoom in a little bit more. Please add this and this will be better this is already AMAZING! 😄.
RIP Adobe

Adobe’s creative ecosystem makes it almost impossible to be creative without signing up, signing in, digging into your bank account.... monthly, working without a network connection and paying for another upgrade to the application. I’ve been working with Apple products since 1989 and I consider myself to be fairly tech oriented. I bought an iPad Pro specifically to work with lightroom and other Adobe products. Honestly, I can’t get half of their products to work anymore. Unless you are some kind of Adobe fan boy, you will realize that there are other products out there that far surpass the performance and price of most Adobe products. Save the monthly fees and your sanity from trying to get this bloatware to operate as you would expect and FIND ANOTHER WAY. Adobe was is king once upon a time but all empires eventually collapse. Adobe is more interested in connecting to your bank account for its monthly extraction than it is interested in creating a product that are actually useful. I don’t want your slow cloud, I don’t want to be stressed out with my machine can’t remember my Adobe ID so that I can use your app, I don’t want another monthly fee so that the application that I already purchased will do what it should already do. Skip this product and go give your money to a developer who will actually make your creative experience seamless and enjoyable. Like Procreate. Now I’m gonna go delete all of adobes applications off of my iPad Pro and I will never look back.
It’s amazing, and free
by Leafeon :3 on 2019/01/04 01:43
I’ve been using this app for a while now (two or three years, maybe?) and its REALLY GOOD. Of course it has its downsides, like limitations on certain things such as the layers and brush sizes, but otherwise, its great. Besides, its free. At the same time, there are some features I would like to have. For one, it would be really nice to have a fill/paint bucket tool. It’s really time consuming to finish the line art of a drawing then having to create a separate layer to color in everything. With something like that, 15 minutes of base coloring turns into 30 seconds. I don’t really have a problem with the layers because I never really use too many, merging some together whenever I reach the limit. However, I’d really love the zoom to be bigger. I understand that adobe sketch isn’t a vector based app (at least I don’t think it is...), but when I try to add detail to something, the limit to the zoom is pretty unhelpful. Nevertheless, if you’re looking for a fairly high quality art program for the minimum price, I suggest Adobe Sketch.
Great App and a great addition to the drawing world
by CJ-391 on 2020/02/26 21:31
I really do enjoy that they made a specific application for the iPad. The tools are laid out nicely and very organized, I felt that on the iPad it doesn’t crowd the screen like it does on the PC version. The brushes are finally easier access! It’s as easy as tapping on the left side, and you have complete control of your brush strokes using the flow dynamics. It was a bit of learning curve at first but they have a nice tutorial for every new user before you dive in blind. Overall, I wasn’t fan of Photoshop on the PC but they did such a good job on breaking every tool down and simplified it into this app, that I have now become a fan. The only thing that I would change (that’s the reason I gave it 4 stars) is that I would do something about the touch gestures. Even though they are great and easy to use. I’m actually left handed and draw in all sorts of positions I even flip my hand upside down to draw certain areas. The reason is that my hand keeps touching the screen and I have to constantly go back erase the left over lines my hand has drawn. Other than that phenomenal job on the app you have truly redeemed yourself with this application! Many Thanks Adobe, CJ
2 years now and things are still the same
by Elskeleto on 2019/09/26 10:31
Amazing app but ridiculous. Been doing some research and file functionality and managing your brushes still seems to be a feature that’s &#34;brushed&#34; aside. No option to delete brushes transferred from the CC files to iPad. You cannot move or rename them either. No way of telling if you already uploaded your brushes while navigating through the CC folder. If you get a duplicate of over 300 brushes your out of luck. Official forums from over a year ago only offer a solution to uninstall. The other option is just plain ridiculous. They want you to delete your brushes form CC, but that still doesn’t tell me where they went on my device. I don’t even know if the duplicates were removed when I reinstalled the app because IOS and adobe won’t allow me the access to that kind of quality of life. The brushes are the only appeal to this app currently because I use them on my PC. UPDATE:Brushes are still there and did not delete. I like to stay in control and organized so this really turns me away from the app. UPDATE 2: Wiped my CC folder. Reinstalled Sketch. Brushes still present, so they’re hidden in the app somehow
Simple and Easy to Use
by Alma_II on 2019/04/29 18:27
I have used this continuously for the past 2 years with 2017 iPad Pro and Apple Pencil 1. It works really well. I like drawing with pencil, so that is honestly all I have used. But I can say this has made me like drawing more on an iPad than in real life (odd to say that) Functions such as undo, repeat, ability to create layers, copy drawing, translate layers, etc., become second nature after enough use. And when they do, it feels very fluid. Give it time to build this second nature, you won’t be disappointed. Now for a comment to the developers (not a complaint). One thing I would like the developers to do is allow you to reduce the pencils/pens on the side bar. So far I have used the pencil, pen, and eraser. I don’t use any of the others provided. It would be nice to hid the pens I do not use and ONLY have the ones you use out. Again, this is not a complaint, this is more of me thinking of something that (in my mind) could make the App even better. After all, it is an awesome app that is entirely free.
Stunned! PLEASE READ
by BayGrace325 on 2018/07/04 01:47
I had searched so hard to find an app that would seek my art needs. I looked at some animation apps, some weird kid doodling ones, and some very high tech apps. I finally got this one because of the great reviews. I thought it was pretty hard to use at first, and thought about getting a new app. BUT I decided to try it out. Happy about my decision I have created some of the cutest artwork!! This helped me evolve my art style (which I was desperate to do.) It surprisingly became a mix of both my old and new art styles which is WAY better than either styles individually. Many compliments to this app, and thanks for letting it all be free. This app should cost 4.99, but I’m glad it doesn’t! I have no current requests to this wonderful app except for a smear option, so thanks for reading my review.
Wonderful Horizon, but...
by Yacht Rocker on 2017/10/27 15:25
This new suite of Adobe apps is another powerful tool to assist designers in broadening their capabilities at providing services that are in synch with today’s demands. Being able to create, edit and share professional quality designs from your phone is an asset and in today’s competitive market. Each of these apps are unique and integrates seamlessly with your Creative Cloud projects. The only issue I’ve had to date is dealing with some less than intuitive menus and the absolutely unnecessary amount of spam that gets tagged in to any design you share through texts... it borders on ridiculous. We don’t need to know in multiple different following messages who made the app, where you can get it, what it does, who it’s from, links to web pages.... on and on, all from sharing one picture. Clean that up and not spam the crap out of my contacts, with your ads forcefully being delivered through private messaging, and we have an almost perfect suite of tools!
It needs some work
by _____🌇 on 2020/08/14 17:56
Overall it’s a good app and I like that it’s free but I have some things that are annoying and should be fixed. 1. It’s really annoying that you can’t blend anything which makes it pretty hard to draw people (and other things where you need to blend colors or make something fade) and 2. I hate how you can do the undo button just by sliding two fingers to the left because I’m always trying to zoom in or out and it just keeps undoing my last action. Is there a way to turn this off or get rid of it? It makes it super hard to draw in detail. 3. It would be nice to be able to zoom in more. You can already spoon in more but there was a picture I was coloring and it wouldn’t let me zoom in any more so I couldn’t do it in detail. I don’t mean to complain or anything because it’s actually a good app and it’s super cool how you can draw on your pictures (I’ve made some super cool ones) I would just like it if these things could be fixed. Thank you!!! 😁
Well yes, but actually no
by KlanceIsCanonKing69 on 2019/11/17 23:45
Alright, this app is actually great for drawing offline and just having a snazzy car ride to school, or when you get bored and you have a while until you get somewhere. What it isn’t is something you can use to make full on masterpieces. It’s being said by a lot of people that there aren’t enough brushes and stuff but I’d like to emphasize the fact that it literally says “are you an artist on the go?” That means, translated into regular people talk, “are you sitting on a bus right now bored out of your mind?”. It’s intended use is for you to sketch and draw on it while your sitting on some subway train or in your moms car. Just so you know, don’t get this app expecting to get a masterpiece maker, it’s not that. It’s still awesome to pass the time. Also, if you see this developers, I’d really love a feature that allows you to insert pictures into it and edit them, it would be fun. Thanks for reading this, -Vwenties
Great app but libraries brush panel needs a view by group
by dragonball z is better on 2019/09/14 21:32
Okay so this is little but it’s really annoying. in the libraries panel when you import brushes I wish there was an option to also view by group, because I import my brushes from photoshop cc desktop I have a library called brushes and in my brushes library I have them group by name for example lense flare brushes, smoke brushes,cartoon brushes,ects... all in a their group but all under the same library, but when I open adobe sketch and go to the brushes panel all the brushes are in the same library with no option to see them by group like in the desktop version of libraries, so I have to scroll through 100 brushes just to find the brush I need I hope you guys add this cause I would hate to just make a new library for every single set of brushes. I mean it shouldn’t be hard it’s already an option to group in the desktop apps just wish the mobile was the same. Thank you
Could be better
by Luoers on 2017/11/27 06:04
I’ve used this app for over a year now, and I love it. To the people complaining that there’s no cut and paste option, just fiddle around with the app some more and you’ll find that you can duplicate and transform layers. If the creators/developers of the app stumble upon my review, I want to say that I’d really like a fill option. It’s time consuming to color things such as hair and find and erase any stray marks that crossed over the lines. On other art programs, there’s virtually always a paint bucket option to fill in shapes. However, this amazing app doesn’t have that feature! If there is, please tell me how to find and use it. Another thing: when I enlarge a layer, it becomes more blurry and pixelated (especially if drawn with the graphite pencil). Will you please change or add some things so that no matter how I dilate the drawing it’s resolution and quality with stay the same? Thank you!
Beautiful
by josh ahren behrens on 2018/07/03 23:11
I love this app and all the adobe software on the iPad. I am not a total adobe fanatic but the iPad apps are so well crafted. This app is easy to use but not too simple that you wish it had more. There are shapes and rulers to help you keep a neat look. Many brush options, 20 maybe more and each brush has its own settings. Supports 30 layers. Layers have opacity and can be blended, transformed, Merged or moved between adobe apps by holding down the layer and dragging it onto another app like adobe draw in the multitasking view. If you have the apple pencil it just gets so much better. Pressure sensitivity is supported as well palm rejection. I would say this app is for you if you like doodling, concept art, digital drawing and painting.
Can’t open Non-Native PSD files.
by Somekinaking on 2017/12/30 04:58
While this app in general is absolutely fantastic it doesn’t work well with the other adobe apps. You can import files from Creative Cloud, you can open psd files that did not start in Adobe Sketch despite being able to save Sketch’s files to psd. So if you wanted to move from your laptop to your iPad you could not and if you saved it from your laptop and try to open it back up in Sketch you could not. I would honestly give this a lower rating if it weren’t for the fact the user friendliness and other features were not amazing. It’s sad to see that other creators drawing apps can not only save in psd, open it, interact with adobe’s creative cloud and still offer all of sketch&#39;s features and more baffles me. I would love to continue using this app but the inability to crossover makes it a no go for me at the moment.
Great tool, but can’t export a quality format
by AriesDesign on 2018/08/07 15:03
Great tool to learn and use, but I can’t get my sketches out in a format that works for me. It’s a major disappointment as I found the tool itself to work well for my flow up until I need to get anything out of it. Unless I’m completely missing something, the only options I get to share/export are a link to a low res carousel of images or to create a Behance page. Could use at least an export to PDF to email or share to Dropbox. Can’t even share to creative cloud as that icon is inexplicably greyed out. I’m literally having to screenshot then airdrop them to my computer so I can put them in a presentation. Terrible experience in contrast to everything else. It’s so frustrating as I really want to use this, but it kills the app’s usability for me. Guess I’ll have to go use another application. I hear Procreate is better in general anyways.
Amazing app! Just one thing I *need* to be added
by Car-t-aye on 2020/05/05 20:41
Hey, Adobe!! Before I say Anything I wanna say, The app is great! I can finally download brushes for deviant art on iOS! It’s overall amazing! However. There has been so many problems with the “limited layers” situation for me. I’m trying to animate a drawing of mine, but I can’t because there’s 4 of tentacles which each go on different layers, a head, eyeliners , eyes whitenings, pupils, a body, both arms (on different layers) and both legs which again, go on different layers. if you could add unlimited layers of Them it would be a whole lot less stuff to worry about. This goes for me and all the other people who struggle with this. Thank you so much for a wonderful app
Do NOT Download
by Ethereal92 on 2019/03/17 04:28
I am so livid at the moment. I used to have ProCreate on my iPad before it broke and decided to try my art on my phone. Procreate was almost $7 at the time, and without a job I didn’t have that kind of money. Instead, I downloaded Adobe Sketch. It was fine at first. Trashy brush options and little you could do to alter them in any way, yeah, but it got the job done. Until today. I’ve had this app for a while, a little over a year, and have had constant problems with it. None of them were as bad as this week, though. I started a project when I first downloaded this app, spent so much time and energy into working on it until it was almost, ALMOST perfect, and got off of the app about two weeks ago. I decided to jump back on and finish it up, save it to my device, and post it on my business page, when there was suddenly nothing. The project was there when I went to open it, but after a moment of loading, every layer I had open was blank. Empty. Nothing I could try to fix it worked. Several emails later and all they told me to do was exactly what I’d already done, until finally I just stopped receiving emails for support. Since then, other projects of mine have been slowly vanishing with no explanation and no way to fix it. Downloading this app is a waste of time and effort. Don’t do it. You’ll regret it.
Awesome app. Minor issue
by fdnnfxcfdbd on 2019/10/09 20:11
I love this app, it really helps me improve my drawing skills. But there is one small issue, when I press the undo button accidentally, it undos and there is no redo button. Please put in a redo button! Also, ads for adobe fresco keep popping up but I do not have the right equipment so I cant get it, this is really annoying. Please fix these small things. And also sometimes the pens do not work very well and it makes my drawing look bad, with all these random blotches all over it. Thank you! Edit: I apologize, I I did not realize that you just have to hold the “undo” button for the redo button. Sorry!
Surprisingly Not Great
by Fail2765 on 2019/12/07 21:37
Seeing that similar software (like Adobe Photoshop on Windows) is being used by professionals, I made the dumb assumption thinking this would be almost just as good. The main thing that totally stinks about the app is the poor selection of brushes. I would figure there would be far more than there was available, but I guess that’s what I get for getting something free, comparing this app to Sketchbook, which has far more brushes and is also free. Lastly, it is very difficult to draw straight lines. Even the slightest movement of your hand or shoulder causes the line to squiggle, and it just looks flat out awful. For a doodle pad, go ahead and download it, but if you’re animating or even just doing portraits go with something free like Autodesk Sketchbook, or something paid like Procreate.
Sketch=Great App. Why Discontinue?
by The Buddha Rats on 2019/11/26 19:30
Adobe Sketch is a great app. I do the majority of my character designing in Sketch: It’s stable, with rock solid digital art supplies included free. It also has the ability to import Photoshop brushes and after 23 years on Photoshop, I have tons of brushes. I was also one of the lucky ones to have purchased Kyle’s brushes *before* he sold them to Adobe, who then proceeded to lock down those brushes and tie them to Photoshop and recently Fresco. Now lets discuss the doomed to fail Fresco. Fresco cannot replace Sketch. Why? Because it’s cluttered, crash-prone and trying too hard compete with Procreate. Fresco will not ever be able to compete with Procreate. Adobe: Read that sentence again. Procreate is stable, enhanceable with add-ons and is a one-time price of $9.99. Why on Earth would anyone “lease” Fresco for $9.99 a month? Adobe, you’re getting greedy and your “everyone will want to lease this app because we made it” mentality will come back to haunt you. Kindly keep Sketch in the line. It’s simple to use, powerful, flexible and everything an artist needs without all the unnecessary bells and whistles that makes Fresco bloated and not fun to work with.
Good in some ways, missing a lot of key features
by 16773382 on 2017/08/02 22:13
I really like this app in a lot of ways - so many different textures and types of brushes, I like the straight line/circle guides etc., but there way too many problems here for me to enjoy it much, and I feel like a lot of the missing tools are really basic and rather obvious (like the basics from Microsoft paint...) 1. No cut and paste feature. 2. No lasso/select feature to move parts around 3. No selection of shapes besides the lines, squares &amp; circles (round cornered squares, polygons, etc.) 4. There are no tools for organizing your projects - if you are creating several pages for 1 project (like illustrating a book) you can&#39;t put all the pages for that 1 project in a folder or something. 5. I wish you could create color pallets for certain projects (you can &#39;like&#39; a color and save it in your library, but you can&#39;t even name it to recognize it from page to page like when you are working on multiple pages for 1 project). All around a bit frustrated with the lack of, in my opinion, rather basic and obvious functions (at least from a cartoonist standpoint).
Reliable app (with two suggestions)
by Ginbit2 on 2018/03/07 22:05
This app is wonderful and I use it wherever I go! The automatic timelapse function is also really helpful for looking back on my process/progress (and to show friends and family how I do each piece!) I typically draw simple, cartoony characters, but recently I’ve been experimenting with landscapes and more detailed cartoons. One suggestion I have for a future update would be the addition of a blending tool. This wouldn’t be a brush, but rather a separate tool (like the eraser, which cannot be replaced with other brushes). It has been VERY difficult to mix colors with only brushes, and a tool with the sole purpose of blending would be a huge step forward. My second suggestion would be the addition of a select tool. Whenever I need to make a copy of a (or just move) specific detail, I have to make a copy of that layer and erase EVERYTHING else aside from that one detail before I can do anything. I think that a select tool would be much appreciated and very well received by the entire community. Thank you for taking the time to take a look at my review, and happy drawing to everyone!
Perfect but for 2 essemtial effects
by axel_nelson on 2019/03/02 07:16
I can&#39;t understand how this can be such a beautiful and game -changing app for spontaneous use on the run without a smudge tool! I&#39;m confused, because even basic, inferior apps have convincing smudges. It really does mean that I have to use other apps. HOWEVER, the watercolor brush effects are MIND-BOGGLING , and the app is essential for that reason alone. I could watch colors bleed into each other for hours! No clue how they made that. Which makes it hard to understand how the oil paint brushes don&#39;t blend colors they paint over! You&#39;d think that would be a comparably simple feature, and not having them combine makes the paint brushes effectively useless. Please, please, please fix this, and I&#39;ll dump all other apps!
Adobe sketch is wonderful!
by poisonous vipers on 2019/11/29 13:15
I use Adobe sketch all the time it is a very good app I really like it . To me it’s easier to do our crafts on an iPad because it’s fun also you can doodle or use pictures to craft . It’s really really fun you can do a lot of projects you can even use pictures off safari that you want to use for your crafts. Adobe sketch also saves your projects. But even if you don’t like it it’s still a really fun app I recommend it I recommend to anyone reading this they should try out adobe spark it’s a fun app to do on Cold days, rainy days, or super sunny days or it’s too hot to go outside .have fun with adobe spark
Not the most user friendly
by Kelllllllllllllllllllllll on 2018/07/04 20:45
Really wish this had better brush management. There is not a way to delete a brush but to go online to a website. Then you have to wait for the brush to sync to the website. As I type this, I have been waiting about 15 minutes for one brush to sync. I have some from months ago that must have glitched out and never synced, so I can’t delete it. I was also surprised some of the brushes that were missing when I downloaded the app - I needed a brush that would create a solid black background with no streaks and there wasn’t one. Which I was able to download one to do what I need but still. It is a little cumbersome using this app especially since I am doing a lot of importing and exporting right now.
There is one ... ok two, major things that is missing that could make this app PERFECT
by xammax2019 on 2019/08/15 18:54
There are two things that are missing from this app 1. A free selection tool “lasso” tool so that we can select and area and then only edit that area in the layer. 2. A magic selection tool. By this I mean a tool that selects everything that is ... for example... RED, or within a border of some sort. For example if I draw a odd ball circle, I can use the magic tool to select the inner boundaries of that circle and dump a bunch or red in it, saving artists tones of time and frustration 😉. Can you guys do that? Because it would make this app literally perfect. A smudge tool would be amazing also. ✌️ I hope to hear back from you with an update. Otherwise I love the app.
Excellent app
by Marieltha on 2017/07/30 01:20
I have just started using this and so am still learning the tools and all the possibilities. It is excellent for a beginner and offers many brushes, more than other apps I have looked at. It offers serious artistic choices; some apps are less oriented to this and seem more game like. The project layout choices are quite varied;there are even some for the ipadpro, which I have just moved up to. I used this app first with finger touch, and now I have an Apple Pencil and it is even better and more varied with that. I will add more details as I use it, but it definitely deserves 5 stars.
Great app
by marmarmar22 on 2018/12/27 22:14
I’ll get to the point. This app is truly amazing for digital drawing. I got a few other apps installed and most of the other apps have poor control when it comes to sliding my IPad stylus on the screen. The touch is hypersensitive and it lacks control in the other apps. This app is amazing. The brushes require a bit of pressure to work, so it feels like pencil on paper. I have a lot more control. I love that. The developers also did a amazing job by adding the visual dot, so I can see what areas I’m covering with my pen. Everything about this app feels like pencil and paper and I love it. Would love for there to be a button where you can go forward in case you use the undo button and don’t like the undo. I also notice there is no filling in bucket tool that adds color to a enclosed area. Lastly, I would like it for there to be a blender brush that I can use to blend the colors together on the drawing. This app has the potential to bypass every popular drawing app out there. I will deff recommend this app. Dear developers, thank you for your hard work.
Less features than a low tier app developer.
by the second best illustrator on 2019/08/22 09:23
I am using my iPad Pro 2018 as my digital tablet. You can not import images from adobe photo express. You can not import any images from any where except illustrator cloud. You can not import *.psd files. You can not send feedback from within the app because the option button doesn’t work. This app is horrid on features from a top tier developer, when the newbies give better features for free. I expect more from a company whom I have spent over $2k in the past on software. I just gave a company $3.99 and got an app that kicks adobe sketch off the option table, no crap subscriptions. Look else where. One good thing is it is free to try out, so you know how terrible and lacking the app is. Do better adobe. Please.
Great App - would be better with a lasso tool
by Dhawk15 on 2019/03/25 23:30
I love this app for iterating on design projects like logos, families of icons, and closely related illustrations. The best feature is the ability to group by and share sketches as projects. I just wish that I had access to a lasso tool so I could move elements around within a single layer... Sometimes I want to select a part of a layer so I can break it out into it’s own separate layer. As far as I can tell, the only way to do this now is to create a new layer and redraw the stuff I wanted to copy a new layer - or duplicate a layer and erase the stuff I don’t want on either layer. Adding something like a lasso tool would be a great quality of life improvement for this otherwise excellent app from Adobe.
The colorblind artist complain
by Prietoseaart on 2018/09/22 06:25
I’m colorblind and none of the colors have the names . I see different colors than a normal person does . It would help a lot if the colors would have their names written bellow them , identifying what color they are that way colorblind artists like me can apply the correct color to drawings . None of the colors on the Picker or Themes have names . Also the colors become diferente when u lower the flow ... for example blue becomes purple . And I can’t tell the difference between blue and purple because I’m colorblind . Hope some one can correct this . I’m not saying the app is bad ... I actually love it but this little thing is driving me crazy !
Great!!!!!!
by Da pie flavored pie on 2017/08/31 18:24
First of all, it&#39;s FREE. There&#39;s a storage limitation (you can extend it using money) but it won&#39;t matter if you just delete them after sending it to ur photo library. And there&#39;s many brushes, you can select an image from ur device and sketch over it too. Just make sure you have a stylus, Apple Pencil recommended. It lets you have precision when drawing. One thing I want though, is the paint bucket that automatically colors the space you click on, cuz that would really really help when trying to draw with your finger without a stylus. But GREAT app!!!
Why I rate four.
by Radar86 on 2019/10/08 16:17
It’s becuase I Don’t like the way you can’t play with them like my town and toca life World. You know, how you can put them in beds,go to a tailor and make clothes for them and then put the clothes on, swim in a pool, listen to music that you picked from your library, go to a salon, buy groceries, see movies, get a pet, go to school, name them, make friends, Live in a house, Getvin the car and go to the car wash, go to restaurant, Visit your friends. If you do all this, I will love you literally forever. So pleeeeeeeeaaaaaaaaassssssseeeeee do it. And the next time you ask me to rate after you do this, I will rate as high as I can go. Please do it.
Storage issue
by Babybull2 on 2020/09/10 10:06
I love this app and have had no real problems with it until this last week where I am told there is not enough storage space to open my work but I check storage and I’ve only used 16% of 2GB. So one of these pieces of information has to be wrong and I have to figure out which. I’m working towards being able to afford Adobe photoshop and Adobe InDesign, but if I can’t finish my projects on this app that all gets delayed! I wish you wouldn’t abandon this app as it really shows how well you design your pro apps and takes the terror out of working on art in apps instead of on paper.
Adobe Sketch
by ddbd ie on 2020/06/18 17:27
I love Adobe Sketch because you can do almost anything that includes art. It’s so much fun too. Even my friend wants to try it out! The amazing thing is, you can never run out of ideas to use Adobe with !! Once I start, I can’t stop having fun with Adobe Sketch!!!!!!! The possibilities are endless! You can draw or color whatever you want! They even let you download pictures to trace and color! I haven’t explored everything yet but I know for a fact that everything will be SUPER DUPER FUN!!! I give Adobe Sketch as many stars as possible! Thank you, Alina

Good app that keeps getting better with each update!
by VronWalrus on 2017/11/12 02:51
I’ve been using adobe photoshop sketch for a few months now. When i first got it, it was good but not perfect. However, slowly but surely with each update, adobe added things i was longing for but the app didn’t have. Custom canvas sizes, resize all layers.. each update is an improvement to my experience which I think can be actually rare sometimes. The only thing that I would need to make this app perfect is a selection / wand tool. ❤️
Great for on the go, but orientation & UI
by JJMan8604 on 2020/05/17 18:12
I use an iPhone 7, and it’s great for on the go, and I know it’s optimized for iPads, but just a little iPhone support would be nice, but my 2 main issues are, 1) I can’t change the orientation of the app, making it really difficult to do landscape, and no, I don’t have Orientation lock on, and 2) I know you can press the two arrows to hide the UI, but it would be better if we had the option to tap the side of the screen to quickly bring up the pen/brush menu and quick collapse it, would make using multiple colors/brushes much easier.
This is great for my artwork! Really brings it to life!
by IcePrince13 on 2019/11/08 09:35
This app has been my most favorite to use, because I am always constantly drawing something I think about! It’s a very essential tool for me to use to express my ideas in ways I never could’ve imagined! But the one thing I really hope it could have, is the option to fill color into a certain part of the character I am designing, instead of always having to fill the characters in with color the old-fashioned way. If I could get a shape fill option on this app, I would really appreciate it!
Use the libraries!
by _del4yo on 2018/11/27 11:40
I’m a Photoshop user for 27 years , this app has so much improved my workflow ! I now draw on my iPad using my own Photoshop brushes and color libraries. Then it exports seamlessly to Photoshop on my computer to continue working. Best tool ever for illustration jobs. And I can work anywhere, including in bed. Absolutely lovely. I just wish it was able to open a picture as a project, to be sure I’m consistent in sizes and resolution. It’s the only problem of an otherwise perfect tool.
Fantastic but lowers the quality of my work
by Legosabine101 on 2020/06/04 04:18
If I adjust my work (make it closer or farther back on the digital canvas), or if I add a new sketch layer, or do pretty much ANYTHING, it makes my line work or smudges go from pretty HD and clear, to lower quality blurred and pixels. It’s really annoying that this can’t be adjusted when I go to download the image to my photo gallery either (change the resolution quality), and I can only zoom in partially because the quality was lowered when I save the final version. This is the only thing that bothers me, and it bothers me enough to make me buy a drawing app like everyone else.
Bluetooth stylus connect
by dersedreamer2 on 2019/08/05 04:54
I used to use this on my old iPad and I could connect my Adonit stylus to the app but now on my new iPad with the recent update the app just focuses on the Apple Pencil and completely removes the feature of connecting another stylus. I don’t get it, did Apple pay you guys to strip this feature for no reason or something? I can still use my stylus without connecting it but it doesn’t work right and now I don’t have an option for it to not detect my hand and the app undoes half of my strokes randomly. I would like to see the stylus connection feature back. As a long time subscriber to adobe creative cloud programs, I’m very disappointed and feel like I’ve wasted my money on a sellout brand.
Not functional
by DisraeliGears01 on 2019/02/13 02:18
This, and all the Adobe iOS programs I’ve experienced are so hamstrung that it’s nigh impossible to use them for simple functions. There’s no reason on earth this application can’t have text input or magic wand, aside from Adobe wanting a sub fee. That’s fine! Release a fully functional Photoshop for iOS and I’ll happily pay you for it! In the meantime, don’t shove out a sketching app only differentiated in functionality to dozens of others by its ties to the Adobe ecosystem. Don’t even get me starting on why Adobe has 10-15 apps doing work that 3-5 could handle. I’ve realized that the program side of Adobe is just as bad as Flash, and literally the only reason they exist is because they got in early.
Annoying bugs
by Rayemue on 2020/03/31 00:07
The app was good use for about a week on an iPad, then strangely something happened, I started experiencing bugs: the same bugs are on my iPhone as well. My strokes keep getting erased in the middle of drawing a line and possibly many more of bugs like this if were to continue using. I don&#39;t know if its the problem with my OS or the app itself but I would like for it to be fixed, if possible. Makes me sad at the current quality it is in. This would be a ten out of ten if it weren&#39;t for the infuriating bugs that go along with. Two and a half stars.
Functional but definitely could include more features
by nikokokokokokokokokoko0 on 2018/09/22 02:49
Functional, but definitely wish the app had some essential capabilities - like selecting and dragging parts of a layer (eg lasso tool), copy paste, paint bucket, magic wand etc etc etc. For example, right now instead of select and transform, I’m stuck duplicating entire layers, erasing the stuff I don’t want to change from the new layer, shifting the entire new layer around, and then erasing the shifted stuff from the original layer. Stuff like this gets really messy and frustrating after a while and is honestly just a huge unnecessary waste of time.
Unstable, Lacks Features
by -0112358- on 2018/09/03 19:49
If you only care about the basics, this app is great - I like the dynamics and selection of implements. However, it lost me over ONE HOUR of work yesterday when it suddenly crashed. Completely unacceptable, especially now that we have spent so many years with standard autosave. There isn’t even a save button anyways. That aside, there’s a very low ceiling on the number of layers (20), which often makes it unusable. In the sidebar, you are limited to five brushes and an eraser at on time. That would be a big issue for some people. Each retains its own color, FYI. All-in-all, I would stay away from Adobe’s gateway-drug apps. They have a lot of potential, especially when used together, but ultimately you and you clients and colleagues end up trapped in the Adobe universe, where you may not want to be... More seriously, losing work in that manner, even once, is not acceptable in software made by a company of such size, reputation, and experience. Not in 2018 on a 2018 iPad.

Adobe sketch
by Nim62 on 2020/09/22 23:08
The app is great. A smudge tool would help. Also is there a way to match colors in a Painting. Also the brushes do not go beyond 200 pixels. Is there a way to increase pixels?

Image Layer

Absolutely love it, but for reason I can’t add an image layer. Hopefully this can be fixed.
Account requirements ruin the experience
by tisch809 on 2020/09/22 18:18
I just want to create, but Adobe gets in the way of its own software, as usual. This is actually a pretty good art app that I know I will never use, which is disappointing.
I Am in love with this app!

by SYCA inc. on 2020/08/21 01:46
It’s one of the best drawing apps that’s available and to top it off it’s free. I’ve been wanting to do digital art for a while now and since I’m only 12 I can’t really do what I want in order to get certain art apps. So I think it’s one of the best apps that you’ll ever come across.

So cool I can’t wait to do more
It needs some work
by _____🌇 on 2020/08/14 17:56
Overall it’s a good app and I like that it’s free but I have some things that are annoying and should be fixed. 1. It’s really annoying that you can’t blend anything which makes it pretty hard to draw people (and other things where you need to blend colors or make something fade) and 2. I hate how you can do the undo button just by sliding two fingers to the left because I’m always trying to zoom in or out and it just keeps undoing my last action. Is there a way to turn this off or get rid of it? It makes it super hard to draw in detail. 3. It would be nice to be able to zoom in more. You can already spoon in more but there was a picture I was coloring and it wouldn’t let me zoom in any more so I couldn’t do it in detail. I don’t mean to complain or anything because it’s actually a good app and it’s super cool how you can draw on your pictures (I’ve made some super cool ones) I would just like it if these things could be fixed. Thank you!!! 😁
Hands Down my favorite drawing app
by Yeeekid on 2020/08/12 08:12
I’ve used alot of the popular drawing applications, and I can say Adobe is by far my favorite. Super user friendly, yet I am still finding new features I didn’t know existed. 9.8/10 experience from me

Tool Display Issues When Multitasking on iPad Pro
by Glassblower 45 on 2020/08/03 02:59
Great app. I’m just trying to send feedback about how it works when multitasking on an iPad Pro. While the app allows me to have a second window on the same screen—like internet browsing, YouTube or whatnot—there is a display issue when I try to change colors for the brushes. The entirety of the sub-screen does not display properly or change colors as I want it to. The problem disappears if I have the app using the entirety of the screen. However, I really want to continue using the app as normal while multitasking with live tools or entertainment on the same screen. If the app allows me to multitask on an iPad Pro, then I would like to be able to use the app fully without a bug that forces me to use the app in full screen mode to continue working on my sketch projects.
This is amazing

by db@GFD on 2020/07/25 18:47
I use sketch to break down areas for landscaping design. It is better stored than pen and paper versions. We use CAD when not rough estimates. I’ve seem the gorgeous artwork created in it too. Maybe someday I’ll get there.
Ok...
by Sonoman3d on 2020/07/21 19:45
I kinda wish that they had more brush options and the lines could be a little more smoother.... other than that it’s okay I guess...

This app is totally amazing! I love it so much. It has everything I need to do fashion illustrations and things like that. I love how you can look at what other people are doing and get inspiration. I love the tools and the way that you can use different layers! I totally recommend this app is soooooooo amazing!!!

Lacks basic functionality
by helloabakkus on 2020/07/15 23:26
While I love the concept of a lightweight version of photoshop’s brush engine for portable drawing, the execution is poor. A terrible default pressure curve (I have to press so hard it feels like my Apple Pencil is going to break to get anything other than a feather-light line with my imported brushes) with no ability to edit it other than manually reworking every single brush you have individually, plus no option to flip your canvas make this a hard pass for me.
Excellent app!
by kitteh mowlol on 2020/07/14 22:50
I’ve been using this app for awhile now and I say it’s excellent! A little hard to understand if you just got it but you get the hang of it!

by this is trish? on 2020/07/05 17:06
it’s my first time doing digital art and I enjoyed the experience. the only problem that I have is that there is no fill in feature. like a feature where a shape you draw can be filled in with a color. this is a pretty basic feature that I think could be easily added. But overall my experience was really good and I did it using my iPhone and finger :)

I don’t know what happened, but after 6 hours of working on a project for school. It. Deleted. My. Work. And. Wasn’t. Recoverable. Lol. That should probably be fixed. Being able to recover documents is a simple service on every app. Or at least seeing the history. Not sure why this one would be different. Very disappointed. Wasted a whole lot of time with this app.
Almost perfect for my needs.
by toosketchy on 2020/07/02 14:52
Would have given it 5 stars but I can’t figure out how to rotate an image without accidentally changing the size. The two finger turning is too hard to keep accurate. There should be a way to lock an image size and rotate it so that the size isn’t accidentally changed and to rotate while pinning it in the center. But for sketching and painting l love it!

Medical illustrations with ease
by PeabodyDVM on 2020/06/26 13:40
This app allows me to easily create numerous anatomical illustrations with or without a photo, and I appreciate how the images export into Photoshop with layers intact, so I can do my final editing on my laptop. I use this app more than any other on my iPad.
The only app I’ll use!
by msdaniellesummers on 2020/06/23 12:46
I love Adobe Sketch!! It’s awesome you guys are still doing bug fixes cause while I would like to use fresco, it’s not supported on my iPad mini 2! Thanks for making this app, it is so seamless and I adore the brushes. It’s also the only drawing app I’ve tried that doesn’t have a cluttered mess of a layout! Please never remove this app I would be lost without it
Good, but wish I could sync between iOS and Android
by rae.and.my.art on 2020/06/22 22:59
This is fun, and I like the different features and pen/brushes/ color options. Only complaint is that I can’t sync between my iOS phone and Samsung tab B.

Works great with Apple Pencil, literally learned how to draw using this app.
This is a great app
by j1@3 on 2020/06/07 17:06
I have been drawing for a while and thought it would be cool to draw digitally, so I got a Apple Pencil and this app. If you are a artist that is looking for a simple drawing app, then get this app. If you are looking for a app that allows you to draw with greater quality and detail, then I recommend a app like procreate or something.
OMG!!!

It’s really annoying that this can’t be adjusted when I go to download the image to my photo gallery either (change the resolution quality), and I can only zoom in partially because the quality was lowered when I save the final version. This is the only thing that bothers me, and it bothers me enough to make me buy a drawing app like everyone else.
Ok
by a ann r on 2020/06/02 18:10
I think this app is amazing but you can’t really blend or smear. I would give it a 4 1/2 but it doesn’t have that option.
How good it is
by Erin90284 on 2020/06/02 16:08
I think it’s good except it’s a bit confusing about the paint brushes and the water color when you use it it spreads all over the paper
Excelente herramienta

Horrible customer service and no answer
Omg yes

This game is sooooooo fun! It has everything you need to make a beautiful picture. It has plenty of tools and instead of different shades pre-made, it has a color palette so you can find just the right shade. I would highly recommend this game for young and old artists. Long story short, download this app!🤩🤩🤩
This is amazing
by Gearkiller91777 on 2020/05/29 14:15
If your trying to sketch or draw anything this is the app for you.
This is the Best App
by Horror village on 2020/05/29 04:33
This app is amazing I have been looking for a sketch app and came across this one. It is completely free and no ads. It is really easy to learn and very fun to draw on.
This app is much easier to use than Fresco
by Syao913 on 2020/05/27 21:46
I am not switching to Fresco, Adobe must keep Sketch. Thank you.
Used to work well
by GernnBlanston on 2020/05/27 15:24
Nowhere to login to adobe account because the login screen blank.
Awesome Except
by jebcudbh on 2020/05/25 02:48
I love, love this app. Have for some time. But today when I connected to WiFi it logged me out and ERASED EVERY SINGLE PIECE I HAD SAVED. I have lost so much work, I am devastated. I warn you to not be as trusting of this app like I was, back up your work somewhere this app is NOT a safe place to do it.

I try to draw on the background but whenever I do it witches to sketch layer
Can’t use unless you create an account through Adobe
by Ninkendo84 on 2020/05/19 18:36
This app used to just work to make sketches, now I can’t use it until I give Adobe all my personal information. This isn’t something people should have to put up with.
I love it
by toolipic on 2020/05/17 23:12
So this lets me draw anything I want and it’s amazing I love it so much like much!!
Great for on the go, but orientation & UI
by JJMan8604 on 2020/05/17 18:12
I use an iPhone 7, and it’s great for on the go, and I know it’s optimized for iPads, but just a little iPhone support would be nice, but my 2 main issues are, 1) I can’t change the orientation of the app, making it really difficult to do landscape, and no, I don’t have Orientation lock on, and 2) I know you can press the two arrows to hide the UI, but it would be better if we had the option to tap the side of the screen to quickly bring up the pen/brush menu and quick collapse it, would make using multiple colors/brushes much easier.
GET THIS, NOT FRESCO!
by QueenScarletoftheSkyWings on 2020/05/17 17:24
I got this app, then I got Fresco. I like Fresco better, but Fresco said my cloud was full, and Sketch did not. I LOVE SKETCH! And by the was do not get Autodesk Sketchbook or Fresco.
Awesome

A few things to say
by I_read_a_lot on 2020/05/15 21:37
I wish that there was a fill bucket to use and that there is a blender. I also think that the eraser should be able to erase the image too. Other than that, it’s a good app.
Much better than fresco
by Jtojerio on 2020/05/14 14:51
Not sure how adobe expects fresco to replace photoshop sketch when their usability is so different. This app is simple and perfect for true sketch artist.
Wow
by Caasssiiee on 2020/05/13 22:48
This is one of the literal best drawing apps I have ever used- and you can make your own brushes with one of the other apps. Very impressed with it in general. I do wish I could mess with the strokes inside of layers but that is definitely pushing it for a free app haha. But it’s definitely so great!

One teeny thing.
by Hannabannabanana on 2020/05/10 23:26
Dear developers, I absolutely love this app, I just started off drawing. One thing I do not understand is why there are so many apps, lol. There are just way too many apps and to have a certain feature, you need to download this app and this app. It would be nice to have all features on one app, like the “fill in” feature, it would be very useful. But, this app is really great and handy.
This app is good but....
by themegafart on 2020/05/10 05:54
I feel like we need better shading tools to make it more realistic. All my edits and drawings look like cartoon characters and they look totally edited and fake

Amazing app! Just one thing I *need* to be added
by Car-t-aye on 2020/05/05 20:41
Hey, Adobe!! Before I say Anything I wanna say, The app is great! I can finally download brushes for deviant art on iOS! It’s overall amazing! However. There has been so many problems with the “limited layers” situation for me. I’m trying to animate a drawing of mine, but I can’t because there’s 4 of tentacles which each go on different layers, a head, eyeliners , eyes whitenings, pupils, a body, both arms (on different layers) and both legs which again, go on different layers. if you could add unlimited layers of Them it would be a whole lot less stuff to worry about. This goes for me and all the other people who struggle with this. Thank you so much for a wonderful app
Great app, but some suggestions
by kachionyeka7 on 2020/05/05 18:38
The app is great! Really love the time lapse feature as well the time saving feature. The additional brushes are also great too. Would love if there was a lasso tool to correct some mistakes on a sketch layer instead of having to duplicate the same layer and erase everything, and then having to adjust the layer (which doesn’t really help a lot of the times).
Good 👌🏼
by Amazing math app!! on 2020/05/01 16:51
I think it is a good app to draw and sketch things that you want. But, there is a glitch in it when you draw something with the ruler or any shape and you move it away it still draws the circle or triangle.
Fresco pop up is really annoying
by Fv-user on 2020/04/29 00:24
Especially when you have the Fresco app already. Its really not necessary to show it every time I open the app
Pretty good but...
by bcooldope on 2020/04/26 21:01
When I got the app it seemed pretty good. But one future that illustrator draw has is you hold down and it colors it in. But this app does not have it.
Awesome.
by AnamitraUIUC on 2020/04/25 08:07
Very enjoyable and professional.
Very fun and useful
by xx_?_xx on 2020/04/25 04:02
I sometimes scribble when im bored but this app helped me realize that i can kinda draw. It has a great interface and feel natural. The only problem i have with it is that there is no blend feature, but i can live with that. 10/10 app. Really reconmend
Really bad
by krazy kawaii on 2020/04/24 23:43
Ok this it’s not about the drawing materials but the storage my storage got full after one project which is sad cause this is a good app for drawing even though I removed the project it’s still saying I have no more space this is a frustrating issue that’s occurring constantly please fix this issue
Great app!
by littleacorn31 on 2020/04/23 16:33
This app is really great for artists just starting to draw digitally. It’s easy to get the hang of and has a lot of cool brushes. I was a little concerned when the newest update said that it wouldn’t be updated anymore because I love this app and use it all the time. I also really like the artists forum thing so please please PLEASE don’t get rid of the updates
The best

Lost my old drawings
by Dean S... on 2020/04/19 00:32
I haven’t used the app for a long time and when I opened it, I briefly saw all my drawings before being forced to log into my Adobe ID, which I then did not have access to my drawings afterwards. What a piece of crap.
not that great
by ternz r goowd on 2020/04/14 23:05
i was expecting to see an amazing art app, but when i realized how difficult it is to draw on this, i stopped using it. you need an apple pen to make it look like a picture, and there are no semetricals.
I’m Loving it. My Art drive is back 30+ years later..
by kevjles on 2018/08/17 01:27
Being a car nut since playing with HotWheels as a kid, My love for cars grew to model cars and eventually Art. After taking Art in JR High I spent hours sketching various cars which I loved but knew I could probably never obtain in real life. Years later headed to work with my prized Automotive Artwork to share with some Co-workers, a freak thunderstorm swept through my car and sucked all of my work out through the passenger window at 65mph and scattered it into a flooding river along the Highway. Lost forever I was immediately sickened knowing I had just watched every memory and piece of art I had created since grade school to that point in time blow right out of the window. This was way before Smart Phones, Apps and electronic storage. Fast forward to this year 2018 using my iPad Pro for work I discovered Adobe Sketch for field drawings and documentation of construction projects. Bored one night I decided to try to recapture my passion for art drawing a vintage VW Bus for a friend who heads up a world wide social media site using Adobe Sketch. After spending over 8 hours doing my first ever Full Color Rendering I posted it on the site. I immediately watched as the likes began to poor in. I’m now back in the world of art which I once Loved thanks to this Amazing tool called Adobe Sketch.. Many sincere thanks to the creators of this Amazing App.... Kevin Lesley , Kev~Rod Designs...
DEVELOPERS PLEASE READ It is good but...
by ray the maniac🤘🏻🌟 on 2019/03/02 22:56
I wish the both of the apps were combined having to go to separate apps all the time to draw different things is really annoying I wish there was a pencil in both of them I wish that the pens were in both of them really adobe I really wish you would just combine both of the apps by now i’m an artist I absolutely love your program it’s free it’s good I like it I just wish That you were combined both and also no smudge stick tool really... it’s really annoying that I can’t combine the colors I can’t have a good fade I know that your app is mostly meant for making logos but I really really wish you would combine both of the apps and add a smudge stick it’s really annoying that I can’t combine the colors or make the colors fade out So please for the love of God add a smudge stick but I genuinely love the watercolor brushes And please please just combined and the stupid apps If you read this developers thank you I know it’s really long but I genuinely want your app to be improved on. me and my mother both use this app and I love it it has a good system there’s layers all kinds of things I genuinely love it. it’s just I wish that you would do things that other things also do other free programs that are more crappy than you. you like one of the best free programs I’ve ever found please continue what you’re doing but please make some improvements and for the love of goodness add a Smudge stick! thank you for reading!
Blown away by the watercolor in this app
by sorchay on 2018/05/17 03:45
Kudos to whoever programmed the watercolor part of this app! This is my favorite painting app by far, and I’ve tried several including the most popular and paid art apps. What keeps me coming back (addicted!) to Adobe Sketch is the beautiful subtlety of how the paint interacts with the surface. Other apps can achieve fairly realistic edges and blending, but with my brush stylus and this app, I feel like I’m painting with watercolor, the way real watercolor works. I forget that I’m working in digital format because the tools seem to work the same way. The paper is “wet” at first and the paint interacts with it, spreads and dries down. Washes interact with each other, and the flow setting is so intuitive, works the same as deciding water to pigment ratio. This app is so realistic I even found myself instinctively lifting paint. Not erasing, but lifting with water just as I would in real life. Love the rest of the app too but I’m especially appreciative of the obvious care that went into the watercolor functions. Thanks! One wish: it would round out the experience if I could have a palette of preselected colors set out instead of choosing anew each time I change colors, but I get by with the color picker. It’s just a little slower than having key colors already “mixed” and at the ready while I paint.
Almost 5 star worthy, BUT.
by Phhhhhhhhhhhooommm on 2017/08/20 01:54
Ok so let&#39;s start with the downs. Can&#39;t zoom in very much, needs few more starting brushes ( not that big of a deal ). And where you can put pictures in it so you can edit them, now I do not know a lot in this (I just know the basics so if there is a way I will probably find out soon). 😐😍 it&#39;s really good also because it has layers and I love the &#34; paint brush &#34; with the paint texture it&#39;s AMAZING definitely my favorite brush out of all of them I&#39;ve tried so far. If you could make the paint brush be able to be more fine/thin that would be great 👍🏻😃😄. I love this and I&#39;d say it&#39;s about 7 out of 10 compared to a general PC version. I think all it needs is a few tweaks to be one of the best ( maybe even the best ) photoshop/editing program on the App Store. This is probably the BEST photoshop type thing I&#39;ve tried besides sketch book ( another one for IOS App Store ). Overall this is great and I use it every day to improve my editing/ animation skills, I also like to do this as a hobby ( when I&#39;m bored ) or just for fun. 😄 ( edit ) Please make it so we can zoom in more... I animate on this and I love this app but I wish we could zoom in a little bit more. Please add this and this will be better this is already AMAZING! 😄.
RIP Adobe
by Scamyou on 2018/02/13 21:55
Adobe’s creative ecosystem makes it almost impossible to be creative without signing up, signing in, digging into your bank account.... monthly, working without a network connection and paying for another upgrade to the application. I’ve been working with Apple products since 1989 and I consider myself to be fairly tech oriented. I bought an iPad Pro specifically to work with lightroom and other Adobe products. Honestly, I can’t get half of their products to work anymore. Unless you are some kind of Adobe fan boy, you will realize that there are other products out there that far surpass the performance and price of most Adobe products. Save the monthly fees and your sanity from trying to get this bloatware to operate as you would expect and FIND ANOTHER WAY. Adobe was is king once upon a time but all empires eventually collapse. Adobe is more interested in connecting to your bank account for its monthly extraction than it is interested in creating a product that are actually useful. I don’t want your slow cloud, I don’t want to be stressed out with my machine can’t remember my Adobe ID so that I can use your app, I don’t want another monthly fee so that the application that I already purchased will do what it should already do. Skip this product and go give your money to a developer who will actually make your creative experience seamless and enjoyable. Like Procreate. Now I’m gonna go delete all of adobes applications off of my iPad Pro and I will never look back.
It’s amazing, and free
by Leafeon :3 on 2019/01/04 01:43
I’ve been using this app for a while now (two or three years, maybe?) and its REALLY GOOD. Of course it has its downsides, like limitations on certain things such as the layers and brush sizes, but otherwise, its great. Besides, its free. At the same time, there are some features I would like to have. For one, it would be really nice to have a fill/paint bucket tool. It’s really time consuming to finish the line art of a drawing then having to create a separate layer to color in everything. With something like that, 15 minutes of base coloring turns into 30 seconds. I don’t really have a problem with the layers because I never really use too many, merging some together whenever I reach the limit. However, I’d really love the zoom to be bigger. I understand that adobe sketch isn’t a vector based app (at least I don’t think it is...), but when I try to add detail to something, the limit to the zoom is pretty unhelpful. Nevertheless, if you’re looking for a fairly high quality art program for the minimum price, I suggest Adobe Sketch.
Great App and a great addition to the drawing world
by CJ-391 on 2020/02/26 21:31
I really do enjoy that they made a specific application for the iPad. The tools are laid out nicely and very organized, I felt that on the iPad it doesn’t crowd the screen like it does on the PC version. The brushes are finally easier access! It’s as easy as tapping on the left side, and you have complete control of your brush strokes using the flow dynamics. It was a bit of learning curve at first but they have a nice tutorial for every new user before you dive in blind. Overall, I wasn’t fan of Photoshop on the PC but they did such a good job on breaking every tool down and simplified it into this app, that I have now become a fan. The only thing that I would change (that’s the reason I gave it 4 stars) is that I would do something about the touch gestures. Even though they are great and easy to use. I’m actually left handed and draw in all sorts of positions I even flip my hand upside down to draw certain areas. The reason is that my hand keeps touching the screen and I have to constantly go back erase the left over lines my hand has drawn. Other than that phenomenal job on the app you have truly redeemed yourself with this application! Many Thanks Adobe, CJ
2 years now and things are still the same
by Elskeleto on 2019/09/26 10:31
Amazing app but ridiculous. Been doing some research and file functionality and managing your brushes still seems to be a feature that’s &#34;brushed&#34; aside. No option to delete brushes transferred from the CC files to iPad. You cannot move or rename them either. No way of telling if you already uploaded your brushes while navigating through the CC folder. If you get a duplicate of over 300 brushes your out of luck. Official forums from over a year ago only offer a solution to uninstall. The other option is just plain ridiculous. They want you to delete your brushes form CC, but that still doesn’t tell me where they went on my device. I don’t even know if the duplicates were removed when I reinstalled the app because IOS and adobe won’t allow me the access to that kind of quality of life. The brushes are the only appeal to this app currently because I use them on my PC. UPDATE:Brushes are still there and did not delete. I like to stay in control and organized so this really turns me away from the app. UPDATE 2: Wiped my CC folder. Reinstalled Sketch. Brushes still present, so they’re hidden in the app somehow
Simple and Easy to Use
by Alma_II on 2019/04/29 18:27
I have used this continuously for the past 2 years with 2017 iPad Pro and Apple Pencil 1. It works really well. I like drawing with pencil, so that is honestly all I have used. But I can say this has made me like drawing more on an iPad than in real life (odd to say that) Functions such as undo, repeat, ability to create layers, copy drawing, translate layers, etc., become second nature after enough use. And when they do, it feels very fluid. Give it time to build this second nature, you won’t be disappointed. Now for a comment to the developers (not a complaint). One thing I would like the developers to do is allow you to reduce the pencils/pens on the side bar. So far I have used the pencil, pen, and eraser. I don’t use any of the others provided. It would be nice to hid the pens I do not use and ONLY have the ones you use out. Again, this is not a complaint, this is more of me thinking of something that (in my mind) could make the App even better. After all, it is an awesome app that is entirely free.
Stunned! PLEASE READ
by BayGrace325 on 2018/07/04 01:47
I had searched so hard to find an app that would seek my art needs. I looked at some animation apps, some weird kid doodling ones, and some very high tech apps. I finally got this one because of the great reviews. I thought it was pretty hard to use at first, and thought about getting a new app. BUT I decided to try it out. Happy about my decision I have created some of the cutest artwork!! This helped me evolve my art style (which I was desperate to do.) It surprisingly became a mix of both my old and new art styles which is WAY better than either styles individually. Many compliments to this app, and thanks for letting it all be free. This app should cost 4.99, but I’m glad it doesn’t! I have no current requests to this wonderful app except for a smear option, so thanks for reading my review.
Wonderful Horizon, but...
by Yacht Rocker on 2017/10/27 15:25
This new suite of Adobe apps is another powerful tool to assist designers in broadening their capabilities at providing services that are in synch with today’s demands. Being able to create, edit and share professional quality designs from your phone is an asset and in today’s competitive market. Each of these apps are unique and integrates seamlessly with your Creative Cloud projects. The only issue I’ve had to date is dealing with some less than intuitive menus and the absolutely unnecessary amount of spam that gets tagged in to any design you share through texts... it borders on ridiculous. We don’t need to know in multiple different following messages who made the app, where you can get it, what it does, who it’s from, links to web pages.... on and on, all from sharing one picture. Clean that up and not spam the crap out of my contacts, with your ads forcefully being delivered through private messaging, and we have an almost perfect suite of tools!
It needs some work
by _____🌇 on 2020/08/14 17:56
Overall it’s a good app and I like that it’s free but I have some things that are annoying and should be fixed. 1. It’s really annoying that you can’t blend anything which makes it pretty hard to draw people (and other things where you need to blend colors or make something fade) and 2. I hate how you can do the undo button just by sliding two fingers to the left because I’m always trying to zoom in or out and it just keeps undoing my last action. Is there a way to turn this off or get rid of it? It makes it super hard to draw in detail. 3. It would be nice to be able to zoom in more. You can already spoon in more but there was a picture I was coloring and it wouldn’t let me zoom in any more so I couldn’t do it in detail. I don’t mean to complain or anything because it’s actually a good app and it’s super cool how you can draw on your pictures (I’ve made some super cool ones) I would just like it if these things could be fixed. Thank you!!! 😁
Well yes, but actually no
by KlanceIsCanonKing69 on 2019/11/17 23:45
Alright, this app is actually great for drawing offline and just having a snazzy car ride to school, or when you get bored and you have a while until you get somewhere. What it isn’t is something you can use to make full on masterpieces. It’s being said by a lot of people that there aren’t enough brushes and stuff but I’d like to emphasize the fact that it literally says “are you an artist on the go?” That means, translated into regular people talk, “are you sitting on a bus right now bored out of your mind?”. It’s intended use is for you to sketch and draw on it while your sitting on some subway train or in your moms car. Just so you know, don’t get this app expecting to get a masterpiece maker, it’s not that. It’s still awesome to pass the time. Also, if you see this developers, I’d really love a feature that allows you to insert pictures into it and edit them, it would be fun. Thanks for reading this, -Vwenties
Great app but libraries brush panel needs a view by group
by dragonball z is better on 2019/09/14 21:32
Okay so this is little but it’s really annoying. in the libraries panel when you import brushes I wish there was an option to also view by group, because I import my brushes from photoshop cc desktop I have a library called brushes and in my brushes library I have them group by name for example lense flare brushes, smoke brushes,cartoon brushes,ects... all in a their group but all under the same library, but when I open adobe sketch and go to the brushes panel all the brushes are in the same library with no option to see them by group like in the desktop version of libraries, so I have to scroll through 100 brushes just to find the brush I need I hope you guys add this cause I would hate to just make a new library for every single set of brushes. I mean it shouldn’t be hard it’s already an option to group in the desktop apps just wish the mobile was the same. Thank you
Could be better
by Luoers on 2017/11/27 06:04
I’ve used this app for over a year now, and I love it. To the people complaining that there’s no cut and paste option, just fiddle around with the app some more and you’ll find that you can duplicate and transform layers. If the creators/developers of the app stumble upon my review, I want to say that I’d really like a fill option. It’s time consuming to color things such as hair and find and erase any stray marks that crossed over the lines. On other art programs, there’s virtually always a paint bucket option to fill in shapes. However, this amazing app doesn’t have that feature! If there is, please tell me how to find and use it. Another thing: when I enlarge a layer, it becomes more blurry and pixelated (especially if drawn with the graphite pencil). Will you please change or add some things so that no matter how I dilate the drawing it’s resolution and quality with stay the same? Thank you!
Beautiful
by josh ahren behrens on 2018/07/03 23:11
I love this app and all the adobe software on the iPad. I am not a total adobe fanatic but the iPad apps are so well crafted. This app is easy to use but not too simple that you wish it had more. There are shapes and rulers to help you keep a neat look. Many brush options, 20 maybe more and each brush has its own settings. Supports 30 layers. Layers have opacity and can be blended, transformed, Merged or moved between adobe apps by holding down the layer and dragging it onto another app like adobe draw in the multitasking view. If you have the apple pencil it just gets so much better. Pressure sensitivity is supported as well palm rejection. I would say this app is for you if you like doodling, concept art, digital drawing and painting.
Can’t open Non-Native PSD files.
by Somekinaking on 2017/12/30 04:58
While this app in general is absolutely fantastic it doesn’t work well with the other adobe apps. You can import files from Creative Cloud, you can open psd files that did not start in Adobe Sketch despite being able to save Sketch’s files to psd. So if you wanted to move from your laptop to your iPad you could not and if you saved it from your laptop and try to open it back up in Sketch you could not. I would honestly give this a lower rating if it weren’t for the fact the user friendliness and other features were not amazing. It’s sad to see that other creators drawing apps can not only save in psd, open it, interact with adobe’s creative cloud and still offer all of sketch&#39;s features and more baffles me. I would love to continue using this app but the inability to crossover makes it a no go for me at the moment.
Great tool, but can’t export a quality format
by AriesDesign on 2018/08/07 15:03
Great tool to learn and use, but I can’t get my sketches out in a format that works for me. It’s a major disappointment as I found the tool itself to work well for my flow up until I need to get anything out of it. Unless I’m completely missing something, the only options I get to share/export are a link to a low res carousel of images or to create a Behance page. Could use at least an export to PDF to email or share to Dropbox. Can’t even share to creative cloud as that icon is inexplicably greyed out. I’m literally having to screenshot then airdrop them to my computer so I can put them in a presentation. Terrible experience in contrast to everything else. It’s so frustrating as I really want to use this, but it kills the app’s usability for me. Guess I’ll have to go use another application. I hear Procreate is better in general anyways.
Amazing app! Just one thing I *need* to be added
by Car-t-aye on 2020/05/05 20:41
Hey, Adobe!! Before I say Anything I wanna say, The app is great! I can finally download brushes for deviant art on iOS! It’s overall amazing! However. There has been so many problems with the “limited layers” situation for me. I’m trying to animate a drawing of mine, but I can’t because there’s 4 of tentacles which each go on different layers, a head, eyeliners , eyes whitenings, pupils, a body, both arms (on different layers) and both legs which again, go on different layers. if you could add unlimited layers of Them it would be a whole lot less stuff to worry about. This goes for me and all the other people who struggle with this. Thank you so much for a wonderful app
Do NOT Download
by Ethereal92 on 2019/03/17 04:28
I am so livid at the moment. I used to have ProCreate on my iPad before it broke and decided to try my art on my phone. Procreate was almost $7 at the time, and without a job I didn’t have that kind of money. Instead, I downloaded Adobe Sketch. It was fine at first. Trashy brush options and little you could do to alter them in any way, yeah, but it got the job done. Until today. I’ve had this app for a while, a little over a year, and have had constant problems with it. None of them were as bad as this week, though. I started a project when I first downloaded this app, spent so much time and energy into working on it until it was almost, ALMOST perfect, and got off of the app about two weeks ago. I decided to jump back on and finish it up, save it to my device, and post it on my business page, when there was suddenly nothing. The project was there when I went to open it, but after a moment of loading, every layer I had open was blank. Empty. Nothing I could try to fix it worked. Several emails later and all they told me to do was exactly what I’d already done, until finally I just stopped receiving emails for support. Since then, other projects of mine have been slowly vanishing with no explanation and no way to fix it. Downloading this app is a waste of time and effort. Don’t do it. You’ll regret it.
Awesome app. Minor issue
by fdnnfxcfdbd on 2019/10/09 20:11
I love this app, it really helps me improve my drawing skills. But there is one small issue, when I press the undo button accidentally, it undos and there is no redo button. Please put in a redo button! Also, ads for adobe fresco keep popping up but I do not have the right equipment so I cant get it, this is really annoying. Please fix these small things. And also sometimes the pens do not work very well and it makes my drawing look bad, with all these random blotches all over it. Thank you! Edit: I apologize, I I did not realize that you just have to hold the “undo” button for the redo button. Sorry!
Surprisingly Not Great
by Fail2765 on 2019/12/07 21:37
Seeing that similar software (like Adobe Photoshop on Windows) is being used by professionals, I made the dumb assumption thinking this would be almost just as good. The main thing that totally stinks about the app is the poor selection of brushes. I would figure there would be far more than there was available, but I guess that’s what I get for getting something free, comparing this app to Sketchbook, which has far more brushes and is also free. Lastly, it is very difficult to draw straight lines. Even the slightest movement of your hand or shoulder causes the line to squiggle, and it just looks flat out awful. For a doodle pad, go ahead and download it, but if you’re animating or even just doing portraits go with something free like Autodesk Sketchbook, or something paid like Procreate.
Sketch=Great App. Why Discontinue?
by The Buddha Rats on 2019/11/26 19:30
Adobe Sketch is a great app. I do the majority of my character designing in Sketch: It’s stable, with rock solid digital art supplies included free. It also has the ability to import Photoshop brushes and after 23 years on Photoshop, I have tons of brushes. I was also one of the lucky ones to have purchased Kyle’s brushes *before* he sold them to Adobe, who then proceeded to lock down those brushes and tie them to Photoshop and recently Fresco. Now lets discuss the doomed to fail Fresco. Fresco cannot replace Sketch. Why? Because it’s cluttered, crash-prone and trying too hard compete with Procreate. Fresco will not ever be able to compete with Procreate. Adobe: Read that sentence again. Procreate is stable, enhanceable with add-ons and is a one-time price of $9.99. Why on Earth would anyone “lease” Fresco for $9.99 a month? Adobe, you’re getting greedy and your “everyone will want to lease this app because we made it” mentality will come back to haunt you. Kindly keep Sketch in the line. It’s simple to use, powerful, flexible and everything an artist needs without all the unnecessary bells and whistles that makes Fresco bloated and not fun to work with.
Good in some ways, missing a lot of key features
by 16773382 on 2017/08/02 22:13
I really like this app in a lot of ways - so many different textures and types of brushes, I like the straight line/circle guides etc., but there way too many problems here for me to enjoy it much, and I feel like a lot of the missing tools are really basic and rather obvious (like the basics from Microsoft paint...) 1. No cut and paste feature. 2. No lasso/select feature to move parts around 3. No selection of shapes besides the lines, squares &amp; circles (round cornered squares, polygons, etc.) 4. There are no tools for organizing your projects - if you are creating several pages for 1 project (like illustrating a book) you can&#39;t put all the pages for that 1 project in a folder or something. 5. I wish you could create color pallets for certain projects (you can &#39;like&#39; a color and save it in your library, but you can&#39;t even name it to recognize it from page to page like when you are working on multiple pages for 1 project). All around a bit frustrated with the lack of, in my opinion, rather basic and obvious functions (at least from a cartoonist standpoint).
Reliable app (with two suggestions)
by Ginbit2 on 2018/03/07 22:05
This app is wonderful and I use it wherever I go! The automatic timelapse function is also really helpful for looking back on my process/progress (and to show friends and family how I do each piece!) I typically draw simple, cartoony characters, but recently I’ve been experimenting with landscapes and more detailed cartoons. One suggestion I have for a future update would be the addition of a blending tool. This wouldn’t be a brush, but rather a separate tool (like the eraser, which cannot be replaced with other brushes). It has been VERY difficult to mix colors with only brushes, and a tool with the sole purpose of blending would be a huge step forward. My second suggestion would be the addition of a select tool. Whenever I need to make a copy of a (or just move) specific detail, I have to make a copy of that layer and erase EVERYTHING else aside from that one detail before I can do anything. I think that a select tool would be much appreciated and very well received by the entire community. Thank you for taking the time to take a look at my review, and happy drawing to everyone!
Perfect but for 2 essemtial effects
by axel_nelson on 2019/03/02 07:16
I can&#39;t understand how this can be such a beautiful and game -changing app for spontaneous use on the run without a smudge tool! I&#39;m confused, because even basic, inferior apps have convincing smudges. It really does mean that I have to use other apps. HOWEVER, the watercolor brush effects are MIND-BOGGLING , and the app is essential for that reason alone. I could watch colors bleed into each other for hours! No clue how they made that. Which makes it hard to understand how the oil paint brushes don&#39;t blend colors they paint over! You&#39;d think that would be a comparably simple feature, and not having them combine makes the paint brushes effectively useless. Please, please, please fix this, and I&#39;ll dump all other apps!
Adobe sketch is wonderful!
by poisonous vipers on 2019/11/29 13:15
I use Adobe sketch all the time it is a very good app I really like it . To me it’s easier to do our crafts on an iPad because it’s fun also you can doodle or use pictures to craft . It’s really really fun you can do a lot of projects you can even use pictures off safari that you want to use for your crafts. Adobe sketch also saves your projects. But even if you don’t like it it’s still a really fun app I recommend it I recommend to anyone reading this they should try out adobe spark it’s a fun app to do on Cold days, rainy days, or super sunny days or it’s too hot to go outside .have fun with adobe spark
Not the most user friendly
by Kelllllllllllllllllllllll on 2018/07/04 20:45
Really wish this had better brush management. There is not a way to delete a brush but to go online to a website. Then you have to wait for the brush to sync to the website. As I type this, I have been waiting about 15 minutes for one brush to sync. I have some from months ago that must have glitched out and never synced, so I can’t delete it. I was also surprised some of the brushes that were missing when I downloaded the app - I needed a brush that would create a solid black background with no streaks and there wasn’t one. Which I was able to download one to do what I need but still. It is a little cumbersome using this app especially since I am doing a lot of importing and exporting right now.
There is one ... ok two, major things that is missing that could make this app PERFECT
by xammax2019 on 2019/08/15 18:54
There are two things that are missing from this app 1. A free selection tool “lasso” tool so that we can select and area and then only edit that area in the layer. 2. A magic selection tool. By this I mean a tool that selects everything that is ... for example... RED, or within a border of some sort. For example if I draw a odd ball circle, I can use the magic tool to select the inner boundaries of that circle and dump a bunch or red in it, saving artists tones of time and frustration 😉. Can you guys do that? Because it would make this app literally perfect. A smudge tool would be amazing also. ✌️ I hope to hear back from you with an update. Otherwise I love the app.
Excellent app
by Marieltha on 2017/07/30 01:20
I have just started using this and so am still learning the tools and all the possibilities. It is excellent for a beginner and offers many brushes, more than other apps I have looked at. It offers serious artistic choices; some apps are less oriented to this and seem more game like. The project layout choices are quite varied;there are even some for the ipadpro, which I have just moved up to. I used this app first with finger touch, and now I have an Apple Pencil and it is even better and more varied with that. I will add more details as I use it, but it definitely deserves 5 stars.
Great app
by marmarmar22 on 2018/12/27 22:14
I’ll get to the point. This app is truly amazing for digital drawing. I got a few other apps installed and most of the other apps have poor control when it comes to sliding my IPad stylus on the screen. The touch is hypersensitive and it lacks control in the other apps. This app is amazing. The brushes require a bit of pressure to work, so it feels like pencil on paper. I have a lot more control. I love that. The developers also did a amazing job by adding the visual dot, so I can see what areas I’m covering with my pen. Everything about this app feels like pencil and paper and I love it. Would love for there to be a button where you can go forward in case you use the undo button and don’t like the undo. I also notice there is no filling in bucket tool that adds color to a enclosed area. Lastly, I would like it for there to be a blender brush that I can use to blend the colors together on the drawing. This app has the potential to bypass every popular drawing app out there. I will deff recommend this app. Dear developers, thank you for your hard work.
Less features than a low tier app developer.
by the second best illustrator on 2019/08/22 09:23
I am using my iPad Pro 2018 as my digital tablet. You can not import images from adobe photo express. You can not import any images from any where except illustrator cloud. You can not import *.psd files. You can not send feedback from within the app because the option button doesn’t work. This app is horrid on features from a top tier developer, when the newbies give better features for free. I expect more from a company whom I have spent over $2k in the past on software. I just gave a company $3.99 and got an app that kicks adobe sketch off the option table, no crap subscriptions. Look else where. One good thing is it is free to try out, so you know how terrible and lacking the app is. Do better adobe. Please.
Great App - would be better with a lasso tool
by Dhawk15 on 2019/03/25 23:30
I love this app for iterating on design projects like logos, families of icons, and closely related illustrations. The best feature is the ability to group by and share sketches as projects. I just wish that I had access to a lasso tool so I could move elements around within a single layer... Sometimes I want to select a part of a layer so I can break it out into it’s own separate layer. As far as I can tell, the only way to do this now is to create a new layer and redraw the stuff I wanted to copy a new layer - or duplicate a layer and erase the stuff I don’t want on either layer. Adding something like a lasso tool would be a great quality of life improvement for this otherwise excellent app from Adobe.
The colorblind artist complain
by Prietoseaart on 2018/09/22 06:25
I’m colorblind and none of the colors have the names . I see different colors than a normal person does . It would help a lot if the colors would have their names written bellow them , identifying what color they are that way colorblind artists like me can apply the correct color to drawings . None of the colors on the Picker or Themes have names . Also the colors become diferente when u lower the flow ... for example blue becomes purple . And I can’t tell the difference between blue and purple because I’m colorblind . Hope some one can correct this . I’m not saying the app is bad ... I actually love it but this little thing is driving me crazy !
Great!!!!!!
by Da pie flavored pie on 2017/08/31 18:24
First of all, it&#39;s FREE. There&#39;s a storage limitation (you can extend it using money) but it won&#39;t matter if you just delete them after sending it to ur photo library. And there&#39;s many brushes, you can select an image from ur device and sketch over it too. Just make sure you have a stylus, Apple Pencil recommended. It lets you have precision when drawing. One thing I want though, is the paint bucket that automatically colors the space you click on, cuz that would really really help when trying to draw with your finger without a stylus. But GREAT app!!!
Why I rate four.
by Radar86 on 2019/10/08 16:17
It’s becuase I Don’t like the way you can’t play with them like my town and toca life World. You know, how you can put them in beds,go to a tailor and make clothes for them and then put the clothes on, swim in a pool, listen to music that you picked from your library, go to a salon, buy groceries, see movies, get a pet, go to school, name them, make friends, Live in a house, Getvin the car and go to the car wash, go to restaurant, Visit your friends. If you do all this, I will love you literally forever. So pleeeeeeeeaaaaaaaaassssssseeeeee do it. And the next time you ask me to rate after you do this, I will rate as high as I can go. Please do it.
Storage issue
by Babybull2 on 2020/09/10 10:06
I love this app and have had no real problems with it until this last week where I am told there is not enough storage space to open my work but I check storage and I’ve only used 16% of 2GB. So one of these pieces of information has to be wrong and I have to figure out which. I’m working towards being able to afford Adobe photoshop and Adobe InDesign, but if I can’t finish my projects on this app that all gets delayed! I wish you wouldn’t abandon this app as it really shows how well you design your pro apps and takes the terror out of working on art in apps instead of on paper.
Adobe Sketch
by ddbd ie on 2020/06/18 17:27
I love Adobe Sketch because you can do almost anything that includes art. It’s so much fun too. Even my friend wants to try it out! The amazing thing is, you can never run out of ideas to use Adobe with !! Once I start, I can’t stop having fun with Adobe Sketch!!!!!!! The possibilities are endless! You can draw or color whatever you want! They even let you download pictures to trace and color! I haven’t explored everything yet but I know for a fact that everything will be SUPER DUPER FUN!!! I give Adobe Sketch as many stars as possible! Thank you, Alina

Good app that keeps getting better with each update!
by VronWalrus on 2017/11/12 02:51
I’ve been using adobe photoshop sketch for a few months now. When i first got it, it was good but not perfect. However, slowly but surely with each update, adobe added things i was longing for but the app didn’t have. Custom canvas sizes, resize all layers.. each update is an improvement to my experience which I think can be actually rare sometimes. The only thing that I would need to make this app perfect is a selection / wand tool. ❤️
Great for on the go, but orientation & UI
by JJMan8604 on 2020/05/17 18:12
I use an iPhone 7, and it’s great for on the go, and I know it’s optimized for iPads, but just a little iPhone support would be nice, but my 2 main issues are, 1) I can’t change the orientation of the app, making it really difficult to do landscape, and no, I don’t have Orientation lock on, and 2) I know you can press the two arrows to hide the UI, but it would be better if we had the option to tap the side of the screen to quickly bring up the pen/brush menu and quick collapse it, would make using multiple colors/brushes much easier.
This is great for my artwork! Really brings it to life!
by IcePrince13 on 2019/11/08 09:35
This app has been my most favorite to use, because I am always constantly drawing something I think about! It’s a very essential tool for me to use to express my ideas in ways I never could’ve imagined! But the one thing I really hope it could have, is the option to fill color into a certain part of the character I am designing, instead of always having to fill the characters in with color the old-fashioned way. If I could get a shape fill option on this app, I would really appreciate it!
Use the libraries!
by _del4yo on 2018/11/27 11:40
I’m a Photoshop user for 27 years , this app has so much improved my workflow ! I now draw on my iPad using my own Photoshop brushes and color libraries. Then it exports seamlessly to Photoshop on my computer to continue working. Best tool ever for illustration jobs. And I can work anywhere, including in bed. Absolutely lovely. I just wish it was able to open a picture as a project, to be sure I’m consistent in sizes and resolution. It’s the only problem of an otherwise perfect tool.
Fantastic but lowers the quality of my work
by Legosabine101 on 2020/06/04 04:18
If I adjust my work (make it closer or farther back on the digital canvas), or if I add a new sketch layer, or do pretty much ANYTHING, it makes my line work or smudges go from pretty HD and clear, to lower quality blurred and pixels. It’s really annoying that this can’t be adjusted when I go to download the image to my photo gallery either (change the resolution quality), and I can only zoom in partially because the quality was lowered when I save the final version. This is the only thing that bothers me, and it bothers me enough to make me buy a drawing app like everyone else.
Bluetooth stylus connect
by dersedreamer2 on 2019/08/05 04:54
I used to use this on my old iPad and I could connect my Adonit stylus to the app but now on my new iPad with the recent update the app just focuses on the Apple Pencil and completely removes the feature of connecting another stylus. I don’t get it, did Apple pay you guys to strip this feature for no reason or something? I can still use my stylus without connecting it but it doesn’t work right and now I don’t have an option for it to not detect my hand and the app undoes half of my strokes randomly. I would like to see the stylus connection feature back. As a long time subscriber to adobe creative cloud programs, I’m very disappointed and feel like I’ve wasted my money on a sellout brand.
Not functional
by DisraeliGears01 on 2019/02/13 02:18
This, and all the Adobe iOS programs I’ve experienced are so hamstrung that it’s nigh impossible to use them for simple functions. There’s no reason on earth this application can’t have text input or magic wand, aside from Adobe wanting a sub fee. That’s fine! Release a fully functional Photoshop for iOS and I’ll happily pay you for it! In the meantime, don’t shove out a sketching app only differentiated in functionality to dozens of others by its ties to the Adobe ecosystem. Don’t even get me starting on why Adobe has 10-15 apps doing work that 3-5 could handle. I’ve realized that the program side of Adobe is just as bad as Flash, and literally the only reason they exist is because they got in early.
Annoying bugs
by Rayemue on 2020/03/31 00:07
The app was good use for about a week on an iPad, then strangely something happened, I started experiencing bugs: the same bugs are on my iPhone as well. My strokes keep getting erased in the middle of drawing a line and possibly many more of bugs like this if were to continue using. I don&#39;t know if its the problem with my OS or the app itself but I would like for it to be fixed, if possible. Makes me sad at the current quality it is in. This would be a ten out of ten if it weren&#39;t for the infuriating bugs that go along with. Two and a half stars.
Functional but definitely could include more features
by nikokokokokokokokokoko0 on 2018/09/22 02:49
Functional, but definitely wish the app had some essential capabilities - like selecting and dragging parts of a layer (eg lasso tool), copy paste, paint bucket, magic wand etc etc etc. For example, right now instead of select and transform, I’m stuck duplicating entire layers, erasing the stuff I don’t want to change from the new layer, shifting the entire new layer around, and then erasing the shifted stuff from the original layer. Stuff like this gets really messy and frustrating after a while and is honestly just a huge unnecessary waste of time.
Unstable, Lacks Features
by -0112358- on 2018/09/03 19:49
If you only care about the basics, this app is great - I like the dynamics and selection of implements. However, it lost me over ONE HOUR of work yesterday when it suddenly crashed. Completely unacceptable, especially now that we have spent so many years with standard autosave. There isn’t even a save button anyways. That aside, there’s a very low ceiling on the number of layers (20), which often makes it unusable. In the sidebar, you are limited to five brushes and an eraser at on time. That would be a big issue for some people. Each retains its own color, FYI. All-in-all, I would stay away from Adobe’s gateway-drug apps. They have a lot of potential, especially when used together, but ultimately you and you clients and colleagues end up trapped in the Adobe universe, where you may not want to be... More seriously, losing work in that manner, even once, is not acceptable in software made by a company of such size, reputation, and experience. Not in 2018 on a 2018 iPad.
