Description
SketchBook for Everybody! At Autodesk, we believe creativity starts with an idea. From quick conceptual sketches to fully finished artwork, sketching is at the heart of the creative process. You never know when a great idea will strike, so access to fast and powerful creative sketching tools is an invaluable part of any creative process.

Amazing but..

Its amazing because I love the app and everything but I have screen time and I really don't think this app falls under the category entertainment more then it does creativity.
Best app

It’s a great app for art
BEST APP EVER!!
by I Wont Sugar Coat It on 2020/10/25 23:14
Now, I usually am a very critical reviewer for art apps. But this has everything! Many different brush choices, corrects line, insert pictures and SO MUCH MORE! I use this to sketch, do thumbnails for my YouTube channel and edit photos! It has a lot of stuff for free but also you can buy extra content! This app has good storage and I would totally recommend it. I hadn’t ever seen it before but it was super easy to learn how to use. Anyone can download it! I enjoyed this so much! Please use it! I could go on and on but let me make it short and sweet, BEST APP EVER!
I have been using this app for ever
by everynicknameistakenuggggghhhh on 2020/10/25 22:59
But it deleted 5 years of work that I can’t get back Sooooo yeah.... love the app, but that didn’t make me too happy

This is amazing I became a artist with this this is so great X-X ✍🏻
ITS GREAT MUST DOWNLOAD
by #game_rater on 2020/10/25 19:44
the first thing I do when I get a new phone is look for a good drawing app. This is amazing. It’s super user friendly unlike 95% of other drawing apps and it can still be used for advanced and complicated drawings. I love to take pictures on my phone and then trace them on this app. It works super well and is super easy. I love the time lapse feature and the quick and easy undo and redo button. I spent HOURS trying to find an easy app that wasn’t a baby coloring app. This app is 100% perfect. It’s not complicated and super easy to learn how to use.
I LOVE YOU

This is really nice and all I love the brushes but it would make the app a whole lot better if there was a clipping mask..
Amazing
by pkhplayer on 2020/10/23 23:03
I absolutely LOVE this app!! It is 100% free- no in app purchases. It has soooo many drawing tools and is super easy to use. There are no ads either! If you are reading this, please download the app! I have no criticism. Note to devs: I love this so much! Please keep this exactly how it is! Thank you for making such an amazing app Edit: I just got an Apple Pencil, please add palm rejection
It’s good not great though

very good! but need some updates..
by oliviahogg on 2020/10/23 01:24
Hi I like this app very much and have been using it since I was five, I think it’s a very cool app if you are interested and definitely recommend. This app needs more brushes tho it would be nice to have new pastels textures and all of that. Other than the its awesome!
GREAT
by prisy910 on 2020/10/22 19:43
This is by far the best app out there
Great! But...
by nickname ^ ^ on 2020/10/22 17:25
I chose this because I also have the desktop app. It was basically the same, with some missing features. But it freezes all of this time and it's very inconvenient. Sometimes when it unfreezes it undoes some of my work.

Love the tools cooooool
Great, but some issues
by kittyzzarekool on 2020/10/22 07:33
I love this app, but lately it’s been crashing and freezing a lot lately. I notice this issues especially while using the mirroring tool. When I use the mirroring tool, occasionally the app will completely freeze up, not letting me do anything. Often times, my drawing will be gone after restarting the app. Luckily, it happens very rarely, but it’s annoying when it does. EDIT: the drawings no longer disappear after using the mirroring tool, but i have noticed a few more issues. Occasionally, after using the color dropper, none of my brushes will work, and I’ll have to close and reopen the app to get it to work again. Also, i’ve noticed the app being somewhat shuttery with the brush tool, where the line stops and starts again, and then the line will lag and then continue drawing after i pick up my stylus.
Great app!
by vanilla :D on 2020/10/22 06:30
This app is the best! There are no ads and you don’t even need premium or anything to access tools. I could spend all day on this app! It has everything you need to draw and special effects too. I really recommend this drawing app a lot!
definitely a free app
by sharkie shrekie on 2020/10/22 05:27
it great that it’s free and it has some good brushes and tools but it frequently glitches or freezes every couple of seconds, which is taking years off my life while I’m trying to draw.
Background Glitch
by its.the.drawing.for.me on 2020/10/21 23:31
I love this app it’s high quality and works well! But sometimes when I go to change the brush color it changes the whole background to that color. I’m not sure if I’m doing something wrong but it keeps happening. But other than that I think it’s a great app! I totally recommend for the most part!
It's good BUT-
by flutterbuf on 2020/10/21 22:50
PLEASE HELP :( I DONT KNOW HOW TO SAVE MY ARTWORK TO THE GALLERY ✋😔 Hi I have sketchbook on my windows 10 drawing computer and I can find where a gallery is.. it's making it really hard to draw because I have to stick with my drawing before starting another one.. also can u please add another little dot color thing to the color editor.. like the mouse thing so we can combine 2 colors instead of just one:) The things that I'm having problems with are simple but they affect me a lot. Please get back to me soon :P
Amazing!

by amhz72 on 2020/10/21 17:28
I’ve had a good experience with this app but I find it sometimes deletes a line you made if you press to hard and it’s obviously not perfect but for a free app it’s incredible! Love it :)
Simply amazing
by yishai james on 2020/10/21 12:51
Such a great sketchbook
Needs more tools
by RacerLynx on 2020/10/21 02:37
Great APP and maybe I need to learn more but it seems to need more shapes and options when it comes to drawing designs and consistent shapes.

There’s no option to title albums, only the individual drawings.
Amazing app please download
by Stanzie87 on 2020/10/20 20:44
I’m 9 yrs old and this is the best drawing app ever and I use this app so much I recommend it for everyone who loves to draw and make sure u have a pen for ur iPad so it’s easier btw I just got one and it’s way easier
Awesome!
by Kiwi girl55555 on 2020/10/20 20:11
This is a great app!! I just wish they had informed me of what to do a bit more.
Clunky UI
by pcheo on 2020/10/20 19:25
Keeps rejecting my attempts to create a new sketch or open the gallery. Support isn’t helpful. UI menu keeps displaying and hiding when it’s not supposed to. Changing the stroke settings isn’t easy. I’m using the latest iPad Pro and the Apple Pencil. Two very expensive products that this app doesn’t compliment well.
This is amazing!
by jfk not joking on 2020/10/19 16:22
I was gonna get procreate but This has just as many wonders as procreate does! I am extremely impressed! I am currently glowing up Ariel ! It works great with an Apple Pencil which I get one every day cause I have billions of dollars! Just don’t like to be out out there. Follow me on tik tok tiktok_goal_1k
I wish pallets were easier to use
by HamsterGOD/ on 2020/10/19 03:19

Great App!
by Danny Mwiine on 2020/10/19 00:23
Sketchbook is a fun, easy, & helpful app to use when creating and/or editing images. Overall, it’s great, but one thing that should be added are metallic colors. People into art and photo editing would like this app very much!
Amazing but one touch up
by JamieSTL on 2020/10/18 15:08
This app is amazing but it is way to easy to delete you art work.
My go to!
by The-Fire-Fish on 2020/10/18 13:00
Finally a quality art app that doesn’t shove ads in your face or force you to get some premium edition. Mostly because it’s all FREE! I am a casual artist but the tools on this app could be used by the pros! I highly recommend this app above all other drawing/art apps

Very nice for beginners but keeps freezing
by lepetiteminette on 2020/10/17 19:28
I just downloaded this app a few days ago and have been really enjoying it so far! The only downside is that it freezes A LOT. And I cant see a pattern in what makes it do this.

Its pretty good but needs changes
by Stivo999 on 2020/10/17 02:37
When im drawing i want to select more then one picture but when i do its always really transparent and i dont know how to put on a different color thats not transparent
Great app but...
by Jordon K. on 2020/10/16 08:48
This is an amazing and easy sketchbook to use for digital art, but recently there has been constant crashes when pretty much just doing anything. I’ve been using this for a while and only started to have this issue recently. The app crashes every so often, not any specifics like importing images, it just happens in the middle of sketching and at one point I have a whole layer I was on deleted. Please find a way to fix this..
Great

I loved using autodesk.
I really like this app!!!
by snuckom on 2020/10/15 22:25
I really like this app with all of it features. I have had it for about 3 days and I thing it is very fun and easy to use, but the controls are a little hard.
It keeps glitching
by ScubaRedRock on 2020/10/15 22:06
I can’t win with this app. Sometimes i can’t open it, other times I can’t start a new sketch and other times I can’t exit the one I am working on. I don’t know what the problem is. All of this happens more often than the app actually working. I can’t get anything done and its really annoying. I would understand if it happened on rare occasions but this is happening EVERY DAY.
Best drawing app
by aydennnnnnnnnnnn on 2020/10/15 18:21
I think sketchbook is the best drawing app I think it’s the best drawing app because it’s very easy to draw there’s lotta tools to draw with and I think it’s very good overallhhhhh

Superb

One of the best but needs iOS 14 update
It’s not a bad app.
by MOUNTAIN DOGGO on 2020/10/14 14:46
I really like this app. But I wish it has more brushes and more shortcuts like tapping with too fingers to undo. But overall. I really like this app!
Why can’t I add custom fonts anymore?!?
by Brandon Michael panek on 2020/10/14 11:14
Whatever happened to that?!? I was fine with adding them on the app, BUT THERE’S NO WAY IN HELL TO REMOVE THAT FEATURE!!!!

BEST GAME EVER!
by Lilly and Toby on 2020/10/13 22:33
I love this game AS A KID! It has so many options to choose from when you are drawing ( over 15! About 20! ) You can do detailed work and simple, but I LOVE to do quotes. There is a ENDLESS color option! If this game did a UPDATE imagine how GOOD it would be!!! 99.99 Review ( BEST APP )
I love it
by Apbecause on 2020/10/13 21:02
I love sketch book! I’ve tried a bunch of other drawing games, and I hated them. They were so hard. You couldn’t find the right color or pen, and if you made a mistake you couldn’t erase it. Sketch book made a different perspective on digital drawing for me.I love it!

Apple Pencil Glitch
by Dark_Kid_66 on 2020/10/12 23:41
Ii really like it, but it is rather hard to operate. I enjoy using it nonetheless. Thanks. Overall great app. Very compatible with Apple Pencil, although, and this may just be my iPad, it does glitch out from time to time and stops working. From there I exit the app and swipe around, the pencil working completely fine. It could be that I’m overwhelming the app, because without the pencil the quality is amazing, but it is rather frustrating to have to exit and re-enter. I like the functions very much, although the amount of buttons and layers is confusing but the videos, I found, were hard to access. Overall, great app, 8/10 would use for free sketching and drawing, realistic tools and wonderful performance other than one minor glitch! Please respond on how to fix, I know you are busy, but sometimes it doesn’t save what I did when it glitches out because of the pencil. I would like to know how to fix or at least what I need to do to make it happen less. Thank you, Autodesk Team!
Love it
by ObedientRobin89 on 2020/10/12 19:33
By far the best mobile app for drawing. I’ve used it for years, and it’s completely free. So many great features.
The best tools on earth!!!
by lavaman28 on 2020/10/12 17:14
OMG I LOVE THIS APP but I just want to see more tools and stuff. Even though I don’t do professional drawings I love the app. It expanded my imagination to a new level.
Nice app

I Only Rated This 1 Star To Hopfully Get The Developers Attention!
by Ashley Hrudowsky on 2020/10/12 04:23
As a lefty, I keep accidentally hitting all the helping tools in the side of my iPad! The oval, the opacity and the size. *Please* have an option to disable them in the settings! Every time I try to draw it keeps stopping me, and it’s more often then I’d like to say!
Pretty fun

Favorite! But I have questions
by 1234567890123456678890 on 2020/10/11 20:18
I love this app SO MUCH! It has a TON of tools for FREE and it doesn’t have ads. But recently, I was drawing and all the sudden my screen flashed the green color I was using and then my iPad shut off, like I reset it. When I opened it back up my drawing looked like a puzzle but put together wrong. Can someone tell me what happened, and if/ how I can fix it?
Great app!
by MusicalManiacN65 on 2020/10/11 18:07
I love how this app is free, and it is really easy to use. The inclusion of all the Copic marker colors is really nice too. One thing I can’t find though is the lasso tool. The inclusion of that would be very helpful to me!
Could benefit from more features, but still- AMAZING APP.
by har07274 on 2020/10/11 00:16
First off: this should be classified as more than just an app. I used this last year for a basic graphic design class and am using it this year for an advanced graphic design class. That being said, I would wish for some other software features to be added to the UI, such as being able to import fonts from third-party sites and apps like dafont.com and fontspace.com. But besides that limitation, I find it works as a useful alternative to paid software like Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Illustrator, especially since I am no longer limited to just a desk for graphic design. So, excellent app overall, and I hope more features are added soon.
Great app! Few things though
by creepypastasforever on 2020/10/10 21:46
I love this app I used to have ibis paint x but that app was so weird and annoying I tried other art apps but none of them worked for me. This one though. This one is perfect! I can make amoung us memes I can make amazing drawings! But maybe you could add in a blend brush? I really would need one. But otherwise this is the perfect app. Oh yeah. Maybe also put in an animation choice so we can animate stuff on this app

by CuteBoris_88 on 2020/10/10 18:04
I love this app! It’s so useful and I draw on it everyday! I haven’t seen any bugs yet. I do wish there was a button we could press to go over the tutorial though, because I accidentally didn’t do the tutorial, and I have to find out how to do things. Like the merge button. It could have been really useful sketches ago. Other than that, this app is beautiful!
How to change language in the app?
by wingatepharm on 2020/10/10 17:30

I love to use this app for my videos but to erase a mistake you have to restart and I would like to have it so you can erase without erase nag the picture under it.But other then that it’s a great app😄
Great app
by 2020=crap on 2020/10/10 04:22
This app is great! I totally recommend it for when you’re on a long car trip or have a lot of free time on your hands and you can make a fantastic sketch of whatever you feel like drawing.
I love Sketchbook!
by Vivian Roach on 2020/10/10 00:49

I sketch with this every day
by McAnsh on 2020/10/08 00:55
This program has been a great tool. It was the first time I used a sketch app. It is very easy to learn to use it. I enjoy the freedom of not having to mix paint. And the cleaning and drying time with paints is now a nonissue . This program has given me the freedom to work on things I would not have tried before. I find that I enjoy the chance to express my self in new ways. I still am feeling my way but I think I am getting more proficient with the program each day. My sketches are improving as I experiment with new techniques. I do my work on an iPad Pro 2 12 inch with an Apple Pencil. Jane McAnsh
Sketch book rocks!🤩
by Savanna Greenwood on 2020/10/07 12:54

Amazing app! Suggestions
by KamuiWaYume on 2020/04/28 06:30
This art app is so great!! I’ve been using it for about a year now and I love just about everything about it. I’ve used other digital drawing apps in the past (like Medibang), but this is the app I found the highest liking to. This app is so, so good, and I’m definitely going to be using it for a long while. There are some things that could be added to this. One thing is a pen tool. Not the actual brush, but the tool were you can tap, make points that you can shape to lines curves. This is a great tool for line art and could be VERY useful to users on here. Another thing that could be added is for users to be able to create their own selection of brushes. We can only have one already created pin at a time, but a lot of us mix different brushes from other pins. Like I almost always use the Inking Pen, Fountain Pen, Colorless Round Brush, Hard Eraser, Hair Brush, Airbrush, Pencil Pal, and the Synthetic Round Bristle Brush in each of my works, and they almost all come from different pins. It would be helpful if we didn’t have to go searching for certain brushes each time we want them. This really, really is a great drawing app, and I definitely recommend it to people who may or even may not try it out. I hope my two small suggestions help, as they could be helpful to other users and myself. I love this app so much! Can’t wait to see what other great things come out of it.
Love it! But please add tools
by Emmimid on 2020/03/03 04:27
I absolutely love this app! It’s by far the best free drawing app out there... it has so many tools and features, and preset colors are really handy. It’s also really easy to edit with, surprisingly. So it does more than just draw with a little help of copy and pasting of layers. My phone has a pretty small screen, (iPhone 5s) but with a stylus, it’s actually pretty easy to draw real art. And it has so many brushes. And the app runs super smoothly on my phone. And a bonus, no annoying ads. No in-app purchases. I absolutely love that, and is yet another reason why I love this app. I also really love the design of the app, once you get the hang of what it can do it’s so easy. And the clean minimalist appearance is really nice. My recommendation for future updates, there isn’t really a way to just blend colors. Sure there are brushes with that affect, but it would be so helpful if there was a blender that just blurred the colors together instead of smearing them; a brush that isn’t supposed to resemble any real-life brush. If you could add that it would be so helpful! Also when I save a drawing to my camera roll, the quality is reduced from what it was in the app, So normally I just screenshot my art instead. But if you could fix this issue I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you for this amazing app. I definitely recommend.
Great sketching app!
by Kjolblk on 2018/02/09 22:56
Great app! I’ve had this app maybe for a month but I already love it. The features are a lovely mix of creative and technical that I can really appreciate. I also love that you can purchase the extra tools without having to commit to some yearly payment plan. I’ve only found one bug so far that keeps this review from being five stars. When I first started using the app, I noticed that using the hold-touch-eyedropper function, even by accident, would cause the app to effectively crash. I could still access all of my projects, but none of the tools would make any mark whatsoever until I went out of the app, closed it out, and restarted it. After I turned the long-hold-touch shortcut off, the bug didn’t pop up as often, but every once in a while, it still does act like I’ve activated the eyedropper and the app will ‘crash’ again. The bug never happens when I manually go into the color wheel and click the eye dropper button, so I think the bug is linked to the gesture shortcut that I can’t seem to turn off. The bug isn’t a super big deal, but it is a little annoying, especially if you do like to use that shortcut and keep it switched on, and it is irritating to have my work interrupted because I have to restart the app. It would be great if the developers could fix it in the next update. Otherwise, the app is great for drawing and sketching and I would definitely recommend it.
My favorite art app :>
by 💜💜anmals💜💜 on 2020/09/27 19:28
I have used lots of art apps but this one is my ultimate favorite :>. I really like this app and I use it a lot for my art. I’m not really sure the reason I like this app so much, it might be because it has a nice loose/free feel like the way I draw. All I know is that different artists have different styles and like different art apps (if they use art apps), so look around and find an app that works for you! Just keep trying and you’ll find what works best for you :>. Just some suggestions for things to add to this app are an option to have a grid on the canvas to help you line things up (if this is already a feature and I just can’t find it then sorry, I'm being dumb). I don’t know why, but when I draw on paper with grids or lines my art looks better than on paper without a grid. I think it helps me line up my art and see where I should put parts of my art :>. Another thing that would be a great addition to this wonderful app is the “fill” option filling in lines that are on a separate layer. I like to keep my layers really separate (like, REALLY really) so it would be great if this was a feature :>. It doesn’t need to be, though, just a suggestion. Thank you to the fantastic developers and the company who made this app, I really enjoy it and hope you keep up the good work!! :D
Excellent App, a Couple Suggestions
by TheTRUEgge on 2018/06/21 01:29
This is a fantastic drawing app, and I am continually astounded by the things it can do. It doesn’t lag even when I have an admittedly absurd number of layers hanging about, and the line correction tool is extremely well-done. However, there are a couple of things I think this app would benefit from. As a webcomic artist, I would personally really like the ability to import new fonts- until then, I’m stuck doing my formatting in photoshop, which works, but using two different applications (On two different systems, notably) is not ideal. Additionally, I would love to be able to ‘favorite’ tools from various classes and have a personalized toolbar where they are- this would save me a lot of time scrolling through the options and remembering which brush I really liked that one time. I would also really like an easy way to copy/paste selected areas on the mobile version (I do all my work on an iPad Pro and it works fantastically), and maybe an easier way to make straight lines symmetrical to the edges of the frame- the only way I’ve found to work consistently is the rectangle tool, which isn’t always the best option. In any case, I adore this app, and I’m really happy that the full version is now completely free. I can’t wait to see the new features you implement in the future.
It works better than ol’ SketchBook Xpress
by BARninja24 on 2017/10/23 16:13
About a year ago, I downloaded the SketchBook Xpress app a couple of days after I got my very own iPad Pro, it worked just like the one I have on my Mac computer, but as the months passed, the SBX app told me to ask the developer of this app to update it or just continue with it’s current version, I went to the App Store and this one had no new updates, so I was cool with drawing my digital art in that current version anyway, but a year later after I got my own iPad Pro, I updated my iPad Pro to iOS 11, and when that SketchBook Xpress does not work with iOS 11 updates, it put me back to my home page, and then I started looking around to see if I could find my old drawing app’s name and see if I could update it from there, it was not on the App Store anymore, so I came across this app, watched three of it’s demonstration videos, and so I deleted my SketchBook Xpress app good bye, and gave this new app a try, and... it actually works better than the ol’ SBX app did once, and I’m already getting the hang of using this new drawing app, I feel like I have much better control on the Autodesk Sketchbook app than I did the SketchBook Xpress app, so I like this one now, I’m still learning how to use it, but I know I’m to love this new drawing app from this day forward.
Could use some improvements
by ElegantParadox on 2019/01/15 05:45
As a hobby artist, this app is great for my doodling and sketching needs. It’s fairly intuitive and I love the variety of brushes with the option of customization for endless types of brushes. I also really appreciate the Copic brushes and colors because I’ve always loved the color selection of copies but have never been able to afford them. I do have some suggestions and bugs though. I seem to be unable to rotate my phone and get the canvas to rotate, which is rather annoying. I checked that my rotation lock was off, but it wouldn’t flip. Another issue I have is with the brush library. I tried multiple times to move my favorite brushes from different sets into “basics”, which is quickest to access, but sometimes, it randomly deletes brushes and I don’t know why. It’s really quite frustrating because I have to go into preferences and reset my brush library every time it happens. I’d like to be able to create my own custom library sections to store my favorite brushes, or simply add a “favorite” button and copy any brushes that I tag as my favorite to a section that resides at the top of the library. All in all, it’s a good app and I’ll definitely keep using it, but I could be made more intuitive and easy to use. Also, huge thanks and kudos for making this app free, I really appreciate it when good tech is available for free.
Very intuitive BUT...
by SpiritHope on 2017/07/30 19:35
I recently purchased and iPad Pro and an Apple Pencil to use for sketching ideas for painting and to display reference photos while painting. I purchased the top 5 sketchbook apps and have given them a try, Autodesk is my favorite so far and here's why: The interface when you are sketching is very intuitive, especially if you've ever used a Wacom tablet before. It's easy and simple to adjust your brush settings mid-sketch. I was happy with my first sketch experience before purchasing the Pro version but I will say after purchasing it, you do get quite a lot of neat tools. Overall, creating in this app is a breeze and so much fun, I love it! The BUT: The "Gallery" interface where the sketches are stored needs to be improved, the menus and navigations don't make sense and I find myself getting frustrated. My only other gripe is that you cannot use the multiple app feature while in this program. In most of the other sketchbook apps you can pull up a reference picture in Safari or your a Photos and draw while viewing it, but not in this one. If they could allow fully functioning multiple app use I wouldn't have a need or want for any of the other sketchbook apps.
Love it
by yeeyeejuiceye on 2019/12/20 14:48
Okay, if your more experienced at drawing digitally, then this isn’t for you. But if your like me and your new to it,I really suggest this app. It lets you import photos and you can outline your photos, you can make speed paints, and it lets you use copics for free. If you don’t know what copics are they are alcohol based markers, great for mixing and blending. Their usually used for graphic art and other very intense art (and I mean like more than a sketch.) I’ve been using it for a few days and I just broke my cheek bone. It lets you zoom in so if your like me and you just broke your cheekbone and your half blind (which is very unlikely) then you can still make art and it doesn’t look sloppy. It never really messes up and glitches like ibis paint. You don’t need a apple pen to use this, although you could use one if you like to. The only reason I’m giving this 4 stars is because it is a little glitchy when your sizing the photo to the size you want when you import it. I’d also like a little more copic colors, but other than that this is the best app for digital art starters. (AFTER NOTE) I’m not changing my mind on this app that’s it’s not great, but I’d love a few more presets for pages. Thank you for reading, I may make more notes so don’t think this is the last (Unless if I forget)!
Great App, with one Autodesk Flaw
by DasReichKaiser on 2017/11/17 14:48
Due to being a former CAD tech, I can tell anyone that the only features this needs, are a sizable grid, ortho type lock (straight lines), and the ability to use a basic coordinate center 0,0.. with built in scale reference object that can be turned on like the ruler, but, possibly two of them, meaning updating the ruler so a straight 90° degree angle for example can easily be made, with a basic scaling ability... and this app fills the gap for CAD techs like myself who worked on planning stage as well as the actual engineering plans (land desktop with civil), for your architect type drawings, to compliment or replace Illustrator/Photoshop.. But, yes, for architect type drawings, the lines producing a shadow if you cut and paste a layer makes the app not easily usable for production drawings unless you dont mind taking a lot longer and redrawing everything when you need to adjust/move something. Asides from these basic additions, and adjustment to how shadows/shading/blending is done automatically on line work, this app is wonderful. I need a razor sharp line, and spend a lot of eraser time if I use the tools built in to say draw a square because zoom in, you will see two/three colors of blended shading. So, now, the paint bucket does not work correctly in those areas.
I have a problem, PLEASE HELP!
by alpacaJin9 on 2019/10/12 06:37
Dear Autodesk Sketchbook developers, I used this app a few months ago, and I had a few nice sketches and drawings that were in my gallery. I really enjoyed it and all the features were easily accessible, making drawing a great experience. The thing is, I never saved the drawings, exported them, shared, etc. They were all on my phone and vulnerable. So, I hadn’t touched the app until recently, when I realized there was a new update. But I had a problem with my Apple ID ( I have an iPhone), and I could not access the app without updating ( which was something I couldn’t do!). In the end, my only choice was to delete and reinstall using a different ID, but all my drawings were gone, sadly. I never had the chance to save them. So is there anything you can do to help me retrieve my sketches, like a backup software or something else. I honestly thought that my drawings would be linked to my account and saved, but it was not. Is this a lost cause, or is there anyway you can help me? Thank you for reading, and I really hope you can help me find a solution to my problem. Sincerely, Concerned user
Got a glitch here! But great app
by Bluble witch saga 2 on 2018/08/02 21:29
Sketchbook is a really good app but I’ve been introduced to some glitches. While I was trying to get everything set up I always put the main layer all the way on top of coloring and stuff like that from a scanned sketch. While I was doing that I wanted to change the background layer to a color, and once I inserted the color it didn’t show up it was just an original color (white), I didn’t mind it but then I started putting color into the sketch (from a different layer below the main sketch)but then the colors weren’t showing up and when I looked at the layers they were there(I wanted to see the layers). At first I thought I did something that made it glitch so I restarted the app but the same things happened but then I did some experimenting and went to main layer and colored it, even thought I don’t do it I wanted to see what was wrong or try to fix it to see if anything was wrong, the weird is that the colors didn’t go on top of the sketch but instead the were below the main sketch I was so confused so I wanted to write these glitches. (SHORT NOTICE: I checked everything in the layers but there nothing that proved that it was my fault)
Almost Perfect
by Some_SpacedOut_Kid on 2020/06/12 06:26
I love love LOVE this app!!! It is far much easier to use than most other drawing apps and you get some very impressive tools for free. It’s the nearly perfect, especially for people new to drawing digital. Free and easy to use; basically perfect - but there’s just one issue... I like to utilize the Time Lapse feature quite a bit, as it’s fun to both watch my process and upload it for others to see. However, I’ve been experiencing an issue where the app doesn’t save my time lapse video, sometimes with a screen blatantly confirming the save has been uploaded to my photo library but not leaving a single trace anywhere on my iPad. This has been happening for quite a while now and is quite frustrating, to say the least. I’ve lost hours upon hours worth of recordings and I have no idea why. Is there any explanation? Are there any ways to recover the lost videos? Help is very needed, please and thank you. It’s quite depressing to spend over three hours on a piece, excitedly expecting to watch the process video only to have it disappear entirely.
Best
by jjkghjkl on 2018/07/22 23:16
Honestly I really love this app because it is just the best. I mean like you can record it too it’s like the best thing ever and I just want to thank the makers of this app so very much for making it because it is amazing I love it so much I can Make Recording‘s of it to that is just the best thing ever and I just really love the app I mean it’s not like everything I want let me just get my words together like normally speed draw things are on computers but this is so easy to use and the things are so clear and it’s really easy to use like I mean I love it and I just really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really love it and I don’t know if I’ve said this yet but I love it and thank you so much for making this app anyways I think I should end this book novels saying I’m making of a review here because I mean honestly I don’t want to make you waste your time on reading my review even though there’s other reviews but this is get a five star because it is amazing the end this was written by a YouTuber named koalations
Love it, but a bug :(
by The Ratings are me on 2020/06/21 19:56
So I’ve been using this app for like 5 months, I just draw mindless doodles and add stuff onto pictures of my pets. I loves this app so much, but today there is a bug and I’m sad. For some reason the color making thingy isn’t working (sorry if I don’t use correct words as I am only a child and do not know what it’s called), I can’t create colors for some reason. I don’t know why, I may just accidentally have turned something off. I don’t know, I can’t use half the features in this thing! I’m actually very sad because I wanted to create a little cute animated picture, but just can’t seem to be able to create colors. I’ve tried EVERYTHING that I know! I’ve closed out the app, I’ve created a new sketch, I’ve clicked about every button! I don’t know if I’m being stupid or if there is a bug, but I think I may just be being stupid. If you are the developer reading this (you probably aren’t), then please reply if you know a way to fix this, or if I’m being stupid! -EDIT Never mind I found out, I was just being stupid.🤣🤣🤣
Incredible
by b_mcintyre on 2019/12/28 13:54
I cannot believe how much is packed into this free app! With a full color spectrum (or copic marker colors) and the insanely large library of brushes, there is no limit to the types of 2D art one can create in this app..the marks left by each tool are so realistic/detailed, it will feel like youre working in your favorite medium IRL and not on your phone/tablet. My only complaint (and why i am giving only 4 stars) is with the interface itself. It is awkward and slow to change brushes or colors, and the “undo” button requires two steps to get to. There is a one step undo in the bottom left but it almost never works, seemingly only undoing a stroke when accidentally touched. All types of transformation (select, copy, cut, paste, transform, duplicate, etc) are found buried; worse, theyre not all even together, with some in layers and others in page layout (also where you’ll find Fill, which makes more sense with brushes no?) I do wish the UX were considered more, model off of an existing structure/format that has proven the test of time. Sure, alter it to fit the sketchbook aesthetic but no need to reinvent the wheel!
I love the app! Would definitely recommend.
by Poke your belly on 2020/07/14 21:25
I love this app! I know I haven't used it for long, but I haven't had any problems with it so far. I don't have much experience with drawing, especially with digital art, but I'm still really happy with the results that came out of this app. I first downloaded this app to test a stylus pen. It didn't work, but I honestly don't care. I'm still glad I downloaded this app. I first tried the app and thought, "Eh. It's not that special." Later on I tried again with a different tool and realized, "Oh hey, this is pretty cool." I began drawing sunsets with only the basic tool set. I thought the only tools were.. the basic tool set. And then I discovered the whole world of brushes and art tools the app had. I immediately thought, "This is gonna be fun." I would definitely recommend this app to beginners like me. It's perfect to practice your digital art skills, and really easy to use. And of course, it won't always turn out the way you want it to. But with this app, you can make drawing extremely fun and easy!
Fun for sketching, but...
by Jamanimal on 2020/08/19 06:37
I’ve used sketchbook on and off for years- it has my favorite sketch brushes and it’s really easy to doodle things in, the drawing itself feels really organic, I can draw like I’m drawing it on actual paper when I’m actually on a screen. That feeling is difficult for any other app I use to capture, and what keeps me coming back to sketchbook again and again. But the thing that drives me off of sketchbook and onto other apps in the first place is that coloring is a bit difficult without clipping masks on mobile. I’ve read that there are clipping masks available on the desktop version of the app, and I would really love for it to be added on the mobile version as well!! That’s pretty much all it would take for me to move to drawing on autodesk full time. The locking feature is an okay stand in, but I prefer separating my colors over multiple layers rather than keeping it all on one, because it’s easier to fix if I mess up. It’s frustrating that an app this nice is missing something a lot of other drawing apps have, especially when it makes the drawing process much smoother. Please add clipping masks to the mobile app!
A Very Good App For Beginners
by Hpy2destroy on 2020/02/09 05:34
I am not very good at drawing anything currently. I bought a pen/stylus for my iPad about 4 days ago to dabble in drawing. I had been doodling on this app for 1-2 hours a day, for 4 days and already I’m seeing improvement on my work. I don’t know if this app is good for more advanced art, since I’m as green as they come. But since I saw improvement in only a few hours, I would strongly recommend this app for other people looking to try out drawing. I liked the selection of brushes and the easy-to-follow interface. I was able to learn where all the important buttons were very quickly. It surprisingly wasn’t too overwhelming for me when I was going through the brush/pen/eraser options. They are categorized well and have brief descriptions to make it easy to pick an appropriate brush. And the fact this is free is an incredible bonus, this app feels like a paid-for app, probably because there’s no ads that pop up while you draw. It’s seems well polished for me so far. It has earned a five stars from me.
Please add keyboard shortcuts for iPad Pro!!!
by Cypress26 on 2019/04/06 06:19
I love using Sketchbook on my new iPad Pro (late 2018 version) - There’s a decent amount of brushes available and I haven’t had a drawing yet where I’ve reached my limit in layers. Some of the tools available are incredible helpful for some graphic design elements. I do wish there were a few more effects brushes added so I could try more new things with my artwork, but I can’t really complain considering all you get in one free package. One thing I can’t stress enough, though: this app needs keyboard shortcuts support for any keyboards compatible with the iPad. I have the most recent iPad and the Apple brand soft folio keyboard to go with it, but I am unable to use familiar keyboard shortcuts like Command+C to copy or Command+V to paste. Adding these shortcuts would save me and any other artists with a keyboard loads of time, which can be important when you’re on a deadline or just trying to get into the flow of a new drawing. Other than those two minors tweaks, I love this app and everything I’ve done with it so far. I can’t wait to see what else I’m able to create with it!
Erases My Work
by dora_the explora on 2020/04/01 18:40
I’ve had this app for over a year now, but only recently started using it again after maybe 7 months. As I’ve been drawing for a school assignment, all has been well and I was truly able to create an amazing drawing. Until the entire app froze. And in order to unfreeze it, I had to exit the app. The heartbreak I felt after 4 hours of working was surreal. When I came back to restart my drawing today however, I figured I ought to save every few minutes as I go along with my drawing in case of emergency. And so, I restarted my drawing and after 30 minutes, I decided to save the drawing. However, as it started to process, it turned to a black screen and exited the app all by its self, leaving my drawing unsaved and deleted. I’m really frustrated because the tools available with this app are so great, but I may need to find a new app to start over (for the third time) with in order to accomplish my assignment. As I think back to when I first started using the app, I remember that I previously had this issue, but I was able to resolve it by saving frequently. But as I test it now, it won’t save any amount of work I do.
Apple Pencil Glitch
by Dark_Kid_66 on 2020/10/12 23:41
Ii really like it, but it is rather hard to operate. I enjoy using it nonetheless. Thanks. Overall great app. Very compatible with Apple Pencil, although, and this may just be my iPad, it does glitch out from time to time and stops working. From there I exit the app and swipe around, the pencil working completely fine. It could be that I’m overwhelming the app, because without the pencil the quality is amazing, but it is rather frustrating to have to exit and re-enter. I like the functions very much, although the amount of buttons and layers is confusing but the videos, I found, were hard to access. Overall, great app, 8/10 would use for free sketching and drawing, realistic tools and wonderful performance other than one minor glitch! Please respond on how to fix, I know you are busy, but sometimes it doesn’t save what I did when it glitches out because of the pencil. I would like to know how to fix or at least what I need to do to make it happen less. Thank you, Autodesk Team!
I love this but one problem...
by MelissaBeth27 on 2017/08/20 03:50
Everything works perfectly and I love how easy it is to control and the smooth drawing but there's only two things wrong, every time I double tap in the corner to undo it it draws on my drawing and I have to zoom out to make sure I don't mess it up. One more thing, once I create my picture and when I go to color it in, can you add a fill bucket? Because I have spent over 4 hours trying to color that SMALL picture without messing anything up, in corners I've gotta lower the size of the brush then when there's a big open space Instead of spending another 30 mins or so I have to turn it up and again and then back down, I mess up I have to do the redo button and then it messes it up more. So what I'm suggesting, can you please add the undo and redo button to the top with the other buttons and then add a fill bucket? It would be greatly appreciated, it's not much to ask but I can deal the undo and redo button but I can not be spending 3-5 hours trying to color in my whole painting when I can paint it in just a tap of a button. Thank you.
Amazing app!😊
by AAG20079 on 2020/07/27 20:40
This is a amazing app best drawing app I’ve ever gotten this is great it gives you a little tour of everything when you go to draw. It has so many options of paint brushes and designs to choose from it also has an amazing layout! Lots of colors to chose from and it has a great gallery after you have pictures in your gallery you can do a slide show to show all of your amazing artwork. So far I have had zero glitches you can even write on your artwork if you want to all you have to do is tap on the T and you put in what you want it to say and there you go. If your not happy with it’s font you can the font so many choices to chose from and you can adjust it if you want. You can do sideways or you can even change the color of your word so instead of your writing on your pic be black you can chose it to be pink, white ,yellow,orange,blue & much more! it is definitely great and it does not cost any money or in app purchases💰I most definitely will have this app for a very long time! 😁😍
Best Art app out there!
by Akmomma25 on 2019/08/04 22:41
I have been looking for a good artistic app for a very long time, one that has a great selection of brushes and tools, and one that will let you use more than one layer, because most of the art apps I’ve gotten have only let you use up to three layers, and that gets pretty annoying. This app is exactly what I have been looking for. The detail is really good for being digital, and finally being able to have more than one section of tools really excites me. It is also a lot easier to use than most other art apps I’ve gotten. One thing I don’t understand is why you have to sign up. I’ve signed up to this app before because it gave me a free trial for a couple of days, and I loved it. Now I have been using this app for over a year and it is wanting me to sign up again. I’m a little wary of this, because I don’t know if it will randomly make me sign in to access my drawings, or just to use the app. So far I’ve been good. Thank you for making this wonderful app free!!
Very powerful (+ some ideas for stuff)
by jaxon boozer on 2019/11/28 15:11
I absolutely love this app. In my opinion, it's the most organized and powerful drawing app on the App Store currently. There's so many possibilities added as of now that exceed what any other app has in the best way possible, and I appreciate that. However, I do feel that it's missing a small handful of things that some other iOS apps actually do have. People might actually need these for certain sketches, but that could be prejudiced or biased, as this is what I've personally needed for some sketches. Here's the things I'd thought of: • Importing custom fonts for use in the text tool, presumably .ttf and .otf files. • Adding effects to images, text, and other pre-existing layers. (i.e., glow, stroke, blur, drop shadow, etc.) • More available locations to import photos as a layer, like iCloud Drive. • The ability to snap-align photos and text to the center of both axes, for accuracy purposes. That's what I think should be added, but they're all just my thoughts. It would be nice if you took at least some of them into consideration. I also noticed that the option to import photos from the sharing module stopped appearing. I assume that it must've been removed. If you could re-add that, that'd be nice, as I found it quite efficient and never had any problems with it. Overall though, Sketchbook is truly a wonderful app. I thank you so much for doing a great job with this, and I hope to continue seeing this app prosper.
Love it! But there’s a glitch.
by My Name Was Snatched on 2019/09/02 22:10
I enjoy the app a lot, honestly. It’s free, simple, and helpful. But there’s a bug that really irritates me, mainly because you can only get rid of it by downloading and redownloading the app, and the process of doing so can be extremely annoying and tiring. The glitch? Basically at random points in time, even after it’s been only 2 days since redownloading again, I’ll be coloring or doing linework, and the same color will look like it’s on another layer, despite it all being on one layer. It can seem minor, but it can be super distracting when it comes to the final product of the art, and makes the whole thing look messy. I have friends I asked about this, and they say they’ve had the same problem, and the only solution I’ve discovered is redownloading over and over again, frequently. I’d really hate to let this go, since I’ve tried other art platforms like MediBang, which proved to be super laggy and a generally useless and unintuitive platform. Other than that, I enjoy the app and would recommend to anyone.
Better than most free apps
by BucketOfTears on 2020/06/10 00:23
I’ve tried some other apps for drawing, but this honestly is my favorite. It’s great because it’s free, yet offers a good bunch of tools, and has features I haven’t really seen in others. From time to time I do have a small issue though, when using predictive stroke the app sometimes freezes, which makes me happy that auto save is a thing because it will just close if I wait, so closing the app completely on my own is my best option. This may just be me, but it doesn’t get in my way much, so I have no issue with it. The tools themselves don’t feel weird like other programs tend to, and there isn’t many ’hidden’ features so to say, so in my opinion it is really beginner friendly. And something I don’t remember seeing on any of the other free programs I have tried is being able to change an entire layers opacity, it helps when I use dark colors for my sketch and need to be able to go over it with clean lines.
THE GREATEST APP EVER!!
by ShinigamiQueen on 2018/04/03 15:14
Sketchbook is my favorite app by far out of all apps, not only digital art apps! It has so many amazing brushes and tools, not only that but it is so easy to use and easy to catch on. Normally digital art apps are set up like photoshop or illustrator but this one is different but still super professional. I love this app so much! I also bought the extra tools for $0.99, I’m so glad I did, it’s so cheap and it’s not monthly or yearly payments, that 99 cents buys it all and it amazes me how much so little can provide! I recommend this app to anyone I can. I am a 16 year old girl who goes to an art school and focuses on visual arts so I am trying to start an art career and expand my skill set by moving to digital art, I’ve gone through so many apps and I even have Procreate but I like Sketchbook much better. Only thing I would recommend to add to an already perfect app would be even more brushes, perhaps hair brushes, splatter brushes, and industrial brushes for grunge or cracked looks.
PLEASE FIX THIS
by iapo on 2018/09/27 17:58
when u make a wallpaper on sketchbook then u save it for some reason it’s slightly off it don’t fit the iPhone X screen correctly.....the reason I know this l...is because I like to take a screenshot of my home screen with apps on it and then move all my app off the first page and it looks like you have apps there but it’s really just the screensaver but I can’t do that now....because wen I use sketchbook save because I do like to add stuff to the screenshot....I save it and wen i apply as home screen....the apps don’t line up and on the top right corner u can see a thin white line seeing that it’s not flush with the screen of the iPhone X.....and yes I know about the motion turning that off or on that’s not the reason it’s not lined up did it both ways this is the only app that does it.....but this is the only app I use to add to my screenshot I take to make my home screen wallpapers....please fix this....can make a wallpaper without it because don’t....willing to send proof of what I’m talking bout if necessary....I just need this little fix
Love... Unfortunately -
by mandamatter on 2020/08/22 15:58
I seriously love this app. Over procreate, even!...I found this app is so much more accurate to what I'm looking for when it comes to how I expect something to work or a brush to stroke. To be honest with you I only downloaded sketchbook because I saw the awesome feature that you could scan from your RL sketchbook and easily turn them into something digital. Seriously something incredible. Please help with this one issue! It's the only reason I did not give five stars. When working with an illustration, when I go to tap on any menu item, when the options pop up they only pop up for a split second. This gives me no time to look through the brushes or even save my drawing or really do much of anything. It's made everything so incredibly irritating that I find that I can't even use it until I get this problem solved. I was toggled with the palm rejection settings, preferences when it came to touch gestures, everything. What do I need to do? Thank you so much for this amazing app!
Really great, but important glitch
by GalexyWolf13 on 2019/08/04 15:55
I really love this app because I’ve been working on it for over a year and it’s never failed me. I love the whole category of tools that you can choose from to customize. I also really appreciate that the layers are easy to access, unlike the app I was originally using. I haven’t run into a glitch since a few days ago, and I keeps messing me up. I have an over 40 layer detailed sketch I made to work on light, and it kept on crashing. I went back in (I only had about 7 layers at the time) and it had deleted parts of my line art. I went on for an hour or two and nothing happened, until it crashed again and it had deleted part of a different layer of line art (I was closer to 40 now). After that, even if I saved it, it would crash and delete part of a layer. Now it’s deleted a whole layer of coloring, a layer of line art, and part of a layer of my background. This may not be a glitch, just a problem with my storage, but I’m curious to why this is happening. Thanks!
Glitch
by pleaseread1234 on 2018/12/28 09:33
The app is very great! I’ve been using it for about three years though there’s been a glitch that has recently been happening, whenever I’m done doing a drawing, I exit out and see that the drawing I was making shows a previous look of my drawing, I thought it was just a bug that made it look something that was done already, I clicked shared and saved image but I checked the image and it showed the previous version of the drawing, I was confused why it wasn’t showing my drawing that was fully done. I know I may not be explaining this right, for example I was making this drawing and I never exited out until I was finished, once I was finished I saw that the drawing wasn’t the exact same finish, it showed part of the process of the drawing but not the finished, then I saved the image and the image didn’t save the finish, only the part of the process. Hopefully I explained that ok? Anyways you guys keep doing what you’re doing!
Love this app but it does have some glitches😕
by dreamyllv on 2019/01/18 19:44
I lovvve this app! However, I’ve been using this app for only less than a month, and I’ve already experienced some pretty irritating glitches. 1) Something happens with the eraser and the app just randomly decides what lines your allowed to erase and what your not erasing. Like if you left that line alone for a bit, when you go back to clean it up it won’t let me. In general too it just won’t let me erase certain lines... I’m flattered but no. I’ve had to change my tool and use white to do it which works but is more time consuming and pointless when it can just be fixed. Also if I want to save my drawing and come back to it later, I can no longer erase anything that I saved previously - annoying. 2) Now because of this eraser issue when I had to get off my iPad for a little, I left my app open while I shut the screen. When I came back my drawing was only partially done. All the work I had done between a time and the time I had to leave my iPad, was erased. ☹️ Good thing I took a screen shot before I left, but having to cut and paste it back into the app...annoying. 3) It’s been freezing up mid-draw... also annoying. It freezes for about ten seconds. Not that long but sometimes when you really into whatever your drawing it gets frustrating! Lol. Also the ruler is slow reacting. I don’t mind but figured I’d let the developers know. When it’s fixed I’ll come back and write a 5 star review🤩
Download at your own risk
by good game but ..... on 2019/08/16 12:11
So all I can say is I love sketch book auto but then you’re probably think why do I have such a bad rating the answer is simple I spent multiple hours drawing something and I was going to be my best work yet but then out of the blue sketch book auto just stops working it’s not a lag or anything then I get a pop up saying something went wrong and I have to save any unsaved work so I start saving and then sketch book just stops working agin closes the whole program and doesn’t work no matter what I do I can’t even close the app !!! So I teen my computer off and just wait for almost the whole next day when it still doesn’t work so I shut down my computer and do Force close the app and lose hours of hard work this went one to happen a few more times but I continued to use SketchBook simply because there was no better option in my opinion please sketchbook figure out how to fix this and have a better auto save or something I don’t like this review but I need people to know what there getting in to do for any one reading this download app at you’re I own risk
Great but a couple little problems.
by iScottyjD on 2018/04/16 22:48
I feel like this app is great, and although I’m not a very great artist it still so easy to use and very noob friendly however I do still have a few problems. The first would be the lower back or forwards buttons; it’s just hard to hit those lower corners with those buttons there. I see the convenience in that position but I think the buttons are fine on the tool bar. My other problem is a little bigger than just a button position. On every different sketch I do there is always some place on the “paper” where it just doesn’t work. I can draw anything in that region and nothing will show up, I don’t even if it’s a software glitch or what but, I do know that it’s not on my end because I literally just got a new iPad. So a fix would be great! Overall the app is great, just those little tweaks and its a 5 star app. I hope that you read this comment and get to work on those tweaks, thx!
Sooo awesome!
by Dame Angmar of the Iron Legion on 2019/06/28 19:19
I always keep seeing these awesome computer-animated artwork which I could never do myself on paper (and if I tried it never looked as good as I imagined it to) so I basically gave up trying until I found this app. It’s so easy to use and I love it! Being able to use multiple types of brushes and blend things together has made my life so much easier when I want to draw things in a specific style I can’t do on actual paper. I would suggest this app to anyone... other apps just seem so complicated, glitchy, or even not complicated enough! With Autodesk Sketchbook I can do pretty much exactly what I need to do no problem. However, I do have a suggestion: Is it possible to adjust the dimensions of the canvas? I also like to design forum signatures and profile images, but I just can’t get the shape right because it’s always a rectangle (starts out with W 2000 and H 1500). And when I resize it, it always adjusts the size but not the overall shape. My signatures always require more width than is available, and my profile images a more square shape, otherwise they do not fit right (if at all). It’s just the shape I’d like to adjust... not the size. I can resize images separately. Could you guys add this? I’m sure it would help out with the drawing experience of more than a few users. Having the same shape of canvas just gets boring after a while lol. Thank you so much for the great app!
Great app, sad upgrade
by Alex Heizer on 2018/04/07 04:28
I love the app. So much that I bought the Pro version 2.x! However, when iOS updated to 11, Pro 2.x no longer worked and I read a lot of people completely lost their work. Thankfully, I always sent my saved files to iCloud and was able to reimport once I upgraded. Unfortunately, even though I paid for the Pro version, I had to pay again, despite the fact it was because iOS upgraded, not because I wanted to. But all software makes you pay for upgrades, so that’s how it is. The big issue is that so many people lost their work because of the upgrade. This is because of two reasons: There was no warning; and the new version didn’t access the previous version’s existing data. 1) There should have been warnings all over the place that you WILL lose ALL of your previous work if you upgrade. This is the developer’s fault. 2) The upgraded app should have automatically just used the same folder as the old version. Easy peasy. This is also the developer’s fault. Fortunately, if you sent your files to iCloud, you can copy them to Dropbox, rename the extension from .skb to .psd and import them from Dropbox. iCloud won’t let you rename the extension, but Dropbox will. It’s a bit of a hassle, but the above two issues are the reason I dropped my 5-star rating down to 3. It’s the best painting app out there, despite having bonehead devs.
AMAZING
by jenxndjsbx hi sossc on 2020/06/17 18:47
This a amazing app! This is definitely a solid 5 stars! What the app I wanted was a app like procreate since it cost money and I didn’t want to spend 5 dollars on something that I knew I would forget about in a few weeks, but this app is the best even tho it’s not Exactly like procreate it almost is like it I ended up searching what apps are like procreate and this app was the first option and looked the best to me so I decided to give it a try and oh my gosh it is super fun I have been using ibis paint x for about a while now and I wasn’t that interested in it from the start but I still used it anyways because it was the most “decent” app I could find non the AppStore I wish I have downloaded this app sooner so it could cure my boredom of quarantine from the start. I really recommend you use this app! Although I wish there was a blender so you could blend stuff in but you won’t regret buying this app at all!
This app is the best I have seen so far! 🖌
by Midnight Shiner on 2020/08/05 21:30
Hi! This review is coming from a beginner in the drawing community. I used to always draw on IbisPaintX. It was to only good app I could find that had somewhat decent brushes, smudge and blur, etc. Then, my friend who has been drawing for years show me this app. After a while, I ended up getting the app. This app has SO MANY more options! The controls are fairly easy to learn, that may be because I am good with tech though. My art has improved a bunch in the mere months I have had this app! Many of my successful drawings are on this app! I have not seen any glitches, it hasn’t froze, etc. The gallery, saving options and anything like that are easy to learn. I recommend this to all artists! And don’t worry about purchasing anything, absolutely everything in the app is free! That is the best part! Well, that is all I have to say! Have a nice day or night whoever is reading this!
I would give it a 4.5 if that existed....
by Mssf5 on 2020/07/26 20:58
Hi, Autodesk, I would like to say that this app was great, and I would give it a 4.5 out of 5 stars if App Store could make users do that. Here’s why I’m giving a 4 (technically 4.5) instead of a perfect 5: 1. Sometimes when I close the app only for a while, and then come back, the screen is just black. I do this a few times? Still a black screen, and once I even had to shut down my device and restart it. Thank God that Sketchbook autosaves... 2. This is on the drawings. Sometimes, dark black lines will appear more faded, or even not look as clean, smooth or straight. What’s up with that? (This has only happened to me twice, not on consecutive days or weeks) 3. This is just a recommendation. Can you give sketchbook users to set a background for a sketch (like what FlipaClip does), or even be able to make us export it as a transparent PNG file? I hope that you will hear me out, and I’m not forcing you, but it’s best to respond. Thank you!
The ONLY sketch app you need
by J. Enjo on 2019/11/10 09:00
This has truly been the greatest sketch/drawing/design app I’ve had. Downloaded a LOT of apps and slowly but surely I deleted Concepts, Paper, etc. because this app outperformed them and with a cleaner interface. I even use this as a photoshop/image editing (light of course) app and gets the job done insanely good and considering the latest photoshop release, this app currently beats it in its own game as well. I’ve sketched, designed, image edited on this and it’s so intuitive and so many features you find new ones even after using it for a long time. In conclusion this is a VERY well polished app, and it’s FREE. It’s mind blowing, I’m so thankful this has helped bring so many ideas to life, from product design, car design, sketching, etc.. Big thanks to the developers!! Hopeful features: In Text, would be great to have color picker to change letter color and also higher quality/resolution text.
BEST EVER
by Latrice09 on 2019/05/07 21:29
Mk so when I saw the video for this app I KNEW it wasn’t gonna be as good as it says, and since I had been using Drawing Desk at the time I thought you would have to pay for all the luxuries that "come" with the app like you have to in Drawing Desk (btw SO do not recommend that app). But I decided to still give SketchBook a try, and I am TELLING YOU this is the best free drawing app. I can’t say it’s the best in the world cuz there’s still REALLY GOOD ones like Procreate. ( My only problem with Procreate is that it costs money but if you’re looking for a non free, super LEGIT, everything you could ask for, fancy drawing app I would recommend that one) (oops I got off subject). ANYWAY I LOVE LOVE LOVE this app and would never delete it. I DEFINITELY RECOMMEND THIS!! You have every tool imaginable every color and it comes with an automatic camera thing that records the drawing being made!! SO MAKE SURE TO HIT THAT GET BUTTON! 😉 YOU WILL NEVER REGRET IT 😄
not rly good
by lxvleypxtato on 2019/05/16 11:54
So i wanted to use a new drawing software for my tablet and i thought, *oh this app is good!* and it was at firrst.. the drawing and sketch part was good but when i wanted to color u cud only use 2 layers and i was like “thats kinda bs but whatever” and i always use more then 2 layers i use like 11 but 2 was good for a basic cartoony character. so i tried again to do more then 2 layers but then k realized u have to pay which os sorry, retarded. so when i was coloring the hair like always, i had tk be aft (away from tablet) real quick, then i came back and colored the hair and some of the hair i disnt get earlier and it made a darker color. it looked like when you had ur opacity to 80 and colored on top on the same thing. then i was like ”ok ill just erase it and color again, might be a glitch.” and it wasnt i did and it looked really badder so i erased it and i went back to the old dark brown in the middls of the hair look. and then i forgot you cant add more layers u have to pay for it which is stupid. i wanted to add a background but i couldnt CUZ U CANT ADD ANOTHER BACKGROUND. i wouldnt download this app its ok if u wanted to but ok.
Cool, but Confusing
by samviol on 2018/12/28 01:02
I haven’t really used it much, but so far, it’s really great for drawing and stuff. I drew a decent amount on it so when I got a new iPad, I got the app and started drawing a bit. I was out of town when I got it and I couldn’t remember what my password was so I decided to wait to get home to sign in, but after I signed in I didn’t see any of my drawings I had drawn on my old iPad. I found my old iPad that has my drawings and everything and I’ve tried to find a way to get the drawings onto my new iPad, but I still don’t know how. As I was looking for a solution, I found that my new iPad has both Local Storage and iCloud Storage, but my old iPad only has Local Storage so I checked if they were somehow different accounts and if they both have the most recent update, but everything seemed all right. It’s hard to tell if I’m missing something or not, but so far that’s the only flaw I’ve found. (Sorry, I don’t really know how to end something like this...)
Crashing issues
by Aimlessburd on 2017/08/30 00:57
Hi autodesk team, I am a long time user of the sketchbook app! I had it on my note 5, iPhone 6, 7, and iPad Pro. Recently I have been dealing with consistent crashing issues, I'll set the scene for you. I paste a picture using the import from gallery icon, then I accept it after I have resized it, I then go to change my utensils color from red to black. I click on the floating pill shaped icon and bring up the color wheel. I select the color and then I tap outside the color selection pop up. The app takes a second and then force closes. I really enjoy being able to draw on my tablet and I further enjoy being able to use autodesk, I am also familiar with the cad program that is also offered from autodesk. So being able to continue to diversify myself with more and more autodesk programs is enjoyable. Since my crashing issue I have resorted to using other illustration apps. I have a paid sketchbook app and this issue is really turning me off from this app. So please help me resolve this issue!
Bored in Quarantine
by Weird Gurl watermelon on 2020/05/16 20:07
So the whole quarantine thing is going on and I was looking through apps that I downloaded awhile ago then I saw this app and I was like ohh I don’t remember using this so I went on it and I’m so glad I did. Everyday I go on there and I find something different to use that’s so cool to draw with. And I can make wallpapers and quotes and post them on Pinterest it’s super fun and I never wrote reviews this long so you know it’s worth it and I recommend using a stylus with it because it makes it easier to draw with but that’s just my opinion, and the thing is I’m not even good at drawing but I can do sooo many cool things that doesn’t require you to be really good at drawing and if you are good at drawing it’s really cool, or if you’re good at painting but you may not have the supplies at the time you can paint on here(me). So I definitely recommend this app for anyone.😁
I loved the app, but then it kept freezing...
by Hello kitty meb on 2020/04/01 05:19
In the middle of drawing a project that I was actually kinda proud of, it just started to freeze soo much and it wouldn’t let me do anything after that. So, I left the app to try and fix it, bc ofc the freezing messed up my drawing a bit when I was trying to get it to work again. I leave and go back on and it wouldn’t let me undo. So I had to fix the mistake that happened. I was in the middle of fixing it, and it froze again. So I did it again. I left, went back on, and fixed it. Right when I started to draw again, it froze. I left, went back on. I put my pencil on my ipad and it froze immediately, and did that about 2 more times before I finally gave up and left the app. The one drawing that I’m actually proud of, I do on this app and I can’t even finish it. I was really happy with how it was turning out and I just really wanna be able to finish it, and hopefully work more with it. Just, please try and fix it asap :(
It is at least a 4 star but...
by Dari Negron on 2019/11/20 21:28
I've been using this app on my phone for years and it has always been working fine, but it is until this year that something weird has been going on. Every now and then an album would multiply and make from 1 to 5 copies. It would do this on its own and every time I would try to delete the copies (since it takes so much space and it is quite unnecessary to have so many) it would delete the original album as well, EVEN THOUGH I would start by choosing ONE of the copies to delete. Problem is, I go to trash to recover all those drawings and they don’t even appear there, then WORSE problem is, I go to my files and the drawings are not even there? I even check the ‘Recently Deleted’ section of the files and they are not there either... it’s as if they never existed. I like this app, I like its features and it’s always been one of my favorites, but it’s come to the point where I don’t feel safe drawing there anymore because a lot of my work is getting deleted.

Its amazing because I love the app and everything but I have screen time and I really don't think this app falls under the category entertainment more then it does creativity.

It’s a great app for art
BEST APP EVER!!
by I Wont Sugar Coat It on 2020/10/25 23:14
Now, I usually am a very critical reviewer for art apps. But this has everything! Many different brush choices, corrects line, insert pictures and SO MUCH MORE! I use this to sketch, do thumbnails for my YouTube channel and edit photos! It has a lot of stuff for free but also you can buy extra content! This app has good storage and I would totally recommend it. I hadn’t ever seen it before but it was super easy to learn how to use. Anyone can download it! I enjoyed this so much! Please use it! I could go on and on but let me make it short and sweet, BEST APP EVER!
I have been using this app for ever
by everynicknameistakenuggggghhhh on 2020/10/25 22:59

This is amazing I became a artist with this this is so great X-X ✍🏻
ITS GREAT MUST DOWNLOAD
by #game_rater on 2020/10/25 19:44
the first thing I do when I get a new phone is look for a good drawing app. This is amazing. It’s super user friendly unlike 95% of other drawing apps and it can still be used for advanced and complicated drawings. I love to take pictures on my phone and then trace them on this app. It works super well and is super easy. I love the time lapse feature and the quick and easy undo and redo button. I spent HOURS trying to find an easy app that wasn’t a baby coloring app. This app is 100% perfect. It’s not complicated and super easy to learn how to use.
I LOVE YOU

by peachy_bagel on 2020/10/24 00:57
This is really nice and all I love the brushes but it would make the app a whole lot better if there was a clipping mask..
Amazing
by pkhplayer on 2020/10/23 23:03
I absolutely LOVE this app!! It is 100% free- no in app purchases. It has soooo many drawing tools and is super easy to use. There are no ads either! If you are reading this, please download the app! I have no criticism. Note to devs: I love this so much! Please keep this exactly how it is! Thank you for making such an amazing app Edit: I just got an Apple Pencil, please add palm rejection
It’s good not great though

It’s good but I can’t send it to Ppl I don’t know if you can but I give this artist game a three star review
very good! but need some updates..
by oliviahogg on 2020/10/23 01:24
Hi I like this app very much and have been using it since I was five, I think it’s a very cool app if you are interested and definitely recommend. This app needs more brushes tho it would be nice to have new pastels textures and all of that. Other than the its awesome!
GREAT
by prisy910 on 2020/10/22 19:43
This is by far the best app out there
Great! But...
by nickname ^ ^ on 2020/10/22 17:25
I chose this because I also have the desktop app. It was basically the same, with some missing features. But it freezes all of this time and it's very inconvenient. Sometimes when it unfreezes it undoes some of my work.

Love the tools cooooool
Great, but some issues
by kittyzzarekool on 2020/10/22 07:33
I love this app, but lately it’s been crashing and freezing a lot lately. I notice this issues especially while using the mirroring tool. When I use the mirroring tool, occasionally the app will completely freeze up, not letting me do anything. Often times, my drawing will be gone after restarting the app. Luckily, it happens very rarely, but it’s annoying when it does. EDIT: the drawings no longer disappear after using the mirroring tool, but i have noticed a few more issues. Occasionally, after using the color dropper, none of my brushes will work, and I’ll have to close and reopen the app to get it to work again. Also, i’ve noticed the app being somewhat shuttery with the brush tool, where the line stops and starts again, and then the line will lag and then continue drawing after i pick up my stylus.
Great app!
by vanilla :D on 2020/10/22 06:30
This app is the best! There are no ads and you don’t even need premium or anything to access tools. I could spend all day on this app! It has everything you need to draw and special effects too. I really recommend this drawing app a lot!
definitely a free app
by sharkie shrekie on 2020/10/22 05:27
it great that it’s free and it has some good brushes and tools but it frequently glitches or freezes every couple of seconds, which is taking years off my life while I’m trying to draw.
Background Glitch
by its.the.drawing.for.me on 2020/10/21 23:31
I love this app it’s high quality and works well! But sometimes when I go to change the brush color it changes the whole background to that color. I’m not sure if I’m doing something wrong but it keeps happening. But other than that I think it’s a great app! I totally recommend for the most part!
It's good BUT-
by flutterbuf on 2020/10/21 22:50
PLEASE HELP :( I DONT KNOW HOW TO SAVE MY ARTWORK TO THE GALLERY ✋😔 Hi I have sketchbook on my windows 10 drawing computer and I can find where a gallery is.. it's making it really hard to draw because I have to stick with my drawing before starting another one.. also can u please add another little dot color thing to the color editor.. like the mouse thing so we can combine 2 colors instead of just one:) The things that I'm having problems with are simple but they affect me a lot. Please get back to me soon :P
Amazing!

I’ve had a good experience with this app but I find it sometimes deletes a line you made if you press to hard and it’s obviously not perfect but for a free app it’s incredible! Love it :)
Simply amazing
by yishai james on 2020/10/21 12:51
Such a great sketchbook
Needs more tools
by RacerLynx on 2020/10/21 02:37
Great APP and maybe I need to learn more but it seems to need more shapes and options when it comes to drawing designs and consistent shapes.

I’m 9 yrs old and this is the best drawing app ever and I use this app so much I recommend it for everyone who loves to draw and make sure u have a pen for ur iPad so it’s easier btw I just got one and it’s way easier
Awesome!
by Kiwi girl55555 on 2020/10/20 20:11
This is a great app!! I just wish they had informed me of what to do a bit more.
Clunky UI
by pcheo on 2020/10/20 19:25
Keeps rejecting my attempts to create a new sketch or open the gallery. Support isn’t helpful. UI menu keeps displaying and hiding when it’s not supposed to. Changing the stroke settings isn’t easy. I’m using the latest iPad Pro and the Apple Pencil. Two very expensive products that this app doesn’t compliment well.
This is amazing!
by jfk not joking on 2020/10/19 16:22
I was gonna get procreate but This has just as many wonders as procreate does! I am extremely impressed! I am currently glowing up Ariel ! It works great with an Apple Pencil which I get one every day cause I have billions of dollars! Just don’t like to be out out there. Follow me on tik tok tiktok_goal_1k

by Danny Mwiine on 2020/10/19 00:23
Sketchbook is a fun, easy, & helpful app to use when creating and/or editing images. Overall, it’s great, but one thing that should be added are metallic colors. People into art and photo editing would like this app very much!
Amazing but one touch up

This app is amazing but it is way to easy to delete you art work.

by The-Fire-Fish on 2020/10/18 13:00
Finally a quality art app that doesn’t shove ads in your face or force you to get some premium edition. Mostly because it’s all FREE! I am a casual artist but the tools on this app could be used by the pros! I highly recommend this app above all other drawing/art apps

Very nice for beginners but keeps freezing
by lepetiteminette on 2020/10/17 19:28
I just downloaded this app a few days ago and have been really enjoying it so far! The only downside is that it freezes A LOT. And I cant see a pattern in what makes it do this.

Its pretty good but needs changes
by Stivo999 on 2020/10/17 02:37
When im drawing i want to select more then one picture but when i do its always really transparent and i dont know how to put on a different color thats not transparent
Great app but...
by Jordon K. on 2020/10/16 08:48
This is an amazing and easy sketchbook to use for digital art, but recently there has been constant crashes when pretty much just doing anything. I’ve been using this for a while and only started to have this issue recently. The app crashes every so often, not any specifics like importing images, it just happens in the middle of sketching and at one point I have a whole layer I was on deleted. Please find a way to fix this..
Great

I really like this app with all of it features. I have had it for about 3 days and I thing it is very fun and easy to use, but the controls are a little hard.
It keeps glitching
by ScubaRedRock on 2020/10/15 22:06
I can’t win with this app. Sometimes i can’t open it, other times I can’t start a new sketch and other times I can’t exit the one I am working on. I don’t know what the problem is. All of this happens more often than the app actually working. I can’t get anything done and its really annoying. I would understand if it happened on rare occasions but this is happening EVERY DAY.
Best drawing app
by aydennnnnnnnnnnn on 2020/10/15 18:21

It’s not a bad app.
by MOUNTAIN DOGGO on 2020/10/14 14:46
I really like this app. But I wish it has more brushes and more shortcuts like tapping with too fingers to undo. But overall. I really like this app!
Why can’t I add custom fonts anymore?!?
by Brandon Michael panek on 2020/10/14 11:14
Whatever happened to that?!? I was fine with adding them on the app, BUT THERE’S NO WAY IN HELL TO REMOVE THAT FEATURE!!!!

I love this game AS A KID! It has so many options to choose from when you are drawing ( over 15! About 20! ) You can do detailed work and simple, but I LOVE to do quotes. There is a ENDLESS color option! If this game did a UPDATE imagine how GOOD it would be!!! 99.99 Review ( BEST APP )
I love it
by Apbecause on 2020/10/13 21:02
I love sketch book! I’ve tried a bunch of other drawing games, and I hated them. They were so hard. You couldn’t find the right color or pen, and if you made a mistake you couldn’t erase it. Sketch book made a different perspective on digital drawing for me.I love it!

Apple Pencil Glitch
by Dark_Kid_66 on 2020/10/12 23:41
Ii really like it, but it is rather hard to operate. I enjoy using it nonetheless. Thanks. Overall great app. Very compatible with Apple Pencil, although, and this may just be my iPad, it does glitch out from time to time and stops working. From there I exit the app and swipe around, the pencil working completely fine. It could be that I’m overwhelming the app, because without the pencil the quality is amazing, but it is rather frustrating to have to exit and re-enter. I like the functions very much, although the amount of buttons and layers is confusing but the videos, I found, were hard to access. Overall, great app, 8/10 would use for free sketching and drawing, realistic tools and wonderful performance other than one minor glitch! Please respond on how to fix, I know you are busy, but sometimes it doesn’t save what I did when it glitches out because of the pencil. I would like to know how to fix or at least what I need to do to make it happen less. Thank you, Autodesk Team!
Love it
by ObedientRobin89 on 2020/10/12 19:33
By far the best mobile app for drawing. I’ve used it for years, and it’s completely free. So many great features.

Nice app

I Only Rated This 1 Star To Hopfully Get The Developers Attention!
by Ashley Hrudowsky on 2020/10/12 04:23
As a lefty, I keep accidentally hitting all the helping tools in the side of my iPad! The oval, the opacity and the size. *Please* have an option to disable them in the settings! Every time I try to draw it keeps stopping me, and it’s more often then I’d like to say!
Pretty fun

by 1234567890123456678890 on 2020/10/11 20:18
I love this app SO MUCH! It has a TON of tools for FREE and it doesn’t have ads. But recently, I was drawing and all the sudden my screen flashed the green color I was using and then my iPad shut off, like I reset it. When I opened it back up my drawing looked like a puzzle but put together wrong. Can someone tell me what happened, and if/ how I can fix it?
Great app!
by MusicalManiacN65 on 2020/10/11 18:07
I love how this app is free, and it is really easy to use. The inclusion of all the Copic marker colors is really nice too. One thing I can’t find though is the lasso tool. The inclusion of that would be very helpful to me!
Could benefit from more features, but still- AMAZING APP.
by har07274 on 2020/10/11 00:16
First off: this should be classified as more than just an app. I used this last year for a basic graphic design class and am using it this year for an advanced graphic design class. That being said, I would wish for some other software features to be added to the UI, such as being able to import fonts from third-party sites and apps like dafont.com and fontspace.com. But besides that limitation, I find it works as a useful alternative to paid software like Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Illustrator, especially since I am no longer limited to just a desk for graphic design. So, excellent app overall, and I hope more features are added soon.
Great app! Few things though
by creepypastasforever on 2020/10/10 21:46
I love this app I used to have ibis paint x but that app was so weird and annoying I tried other art apps but none of them worked for me. This one though. This one is perfect! I can make amoung us memes I can make amazing drawings! But maybe you could add in a blend brush? I really would need one. But otherwise this is the perfect app. Oh yeah. Maybe also put in an animation choice so we can animate stuff on this app

I love this app! It’s so useful and I draw on it everyday! I haven’t seen any bugs yet. I do wish there was a button we could press to go over the tutorial though, because I accidentally didn’t do the tutorial, and I have to find out how to do things. Like the merge button. It could have been really useful sketches ago. Other than that, this app is beautiful!

Great app

I love Sketchbook!

I sketch with this every day
by McAnsh on 2020/10/08 00:55
This program has been a great tool. It was the first time I used a sketch app. It is very easy to learn to use it. I enjoy the freedom of not having to mix paint. And the cleaning and drying time with paints is now a nonissue . This program has given me the freedom to work on things I would not have tried before. I find that I enjoy the chance to express my self in new ways. I still am feeling my way but I think I am getting more proficient with the program each day. My sketches are improving as I experiment with new techniques. I do my work on an iPad Pro 2 12 inch with an Apple Pencil. Jane McAnsh

Amazing app! Suggestions
by KamuiWaYume on 2020/04/28 06:30
This art app is so great!! I’ve been using it for about a year now and I love just about everything about it. I’ve used other digital drawing apps in the past (like Medibang), but this is the app I found the highest liking to. This app is so, so good, and I’m definitely going to be using it for a long while. There are some things that could be added to this. One thing is a pen tool. Not the actual brush, but the tool were you can tap, make points that you can shape to lines curves. This is a great tool for line art and could be VERY useful to users on here. Another thing that could be added is for users to be able to create their own selection of brushes. We can only have one already created pin at a time, but a lot of us mix different brushes from other pins. Like I almost always use the Inking Pen, Fountain Pen, Colorless Round Brush, Hard Eraser, Hair Brush, Airbrush, Pencil Pal, and the Synthetic Round Bristle Brush in each of my works, and they almost all come from different pins. It would be helpful if we didn’t have to go searching for certain brushes each time we want them. This really, really is a great drawing app, and I definitely recommend it to people who may or even may not try it out. I hope my two small suggestions help, as they could be helpful to other users and myself. I love this app so much! Can’t wait to see what other great things come out of it.
Love it! But please add tools
by Emmimid on 2020/03/03 04:27
I absolutely love this app! It’s by far the best free drawing app out there... it has so many tools and features, and preset colors are really handy. It’s also really easy to edit with, surprisingly. So it does more than just draw with a little help of copy and pasting of layers. My phone has a pretty small screen, (iPhone 5s) but with a stylus, it’s actually pretty easy to draw real art. And it has so many brushes. And the app runs super smoothly on my phone. And a bonus, no annoying ads. No in-app purchases. I absolutely love that, and is yet another reason why I love this app. I also really love the design of the app, once you get the hang of what it can do it’s so easy. And the clean minimalist appearance is really nice. My recommendation for future updates, there isn’t really a way to just blend colors. Sure there are brushes with that affect, but it would be so helpful if there was a blender that just blurred the colors together instead of smearing them; a brush that isn’t supposed to resemble any real-life brush. If you could add that it would be so helpful! Also when I save a drawing to my camera roll, the quality is reduced from what it was in the app, So normally I just screenshot my art instead. But if you could fix this issue I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you for this amazing app. I definitely recommend.
Great sketching app!
by Kjolblk on 2018/02/09 22:56
Great app! I’ve had this app maybe for a month but I already love it. The features are a lovely mix of creative and technical that I can really appreciate. I also love that you can purchase the extra tools without having to commit to some yearly payment plan. I’ve only found one bug so far that keeps this review from being five stars. When I first started using the app, I noticed that using the hold-touch-eyedropper function, even by accident, would cause the app to effectively crash. I could still access all of my projects, but none of the tools would make any mark whatsoever until I went out of the app, closed it out, and restarted it. After I turned the long-hold-touch shortcut off, the bug didn’t pop up as often, but every once in a while, it still does act like I’ve activated the eyedropper and the app will ‘crash’ again. The bug never happens when I manually go into the color wheel and click the eye dropper button, so I think the bug is linked to the gesture shortcut that I can’t seem to turn off. The bug isn’t a super big deal, but it is a little annoying, especially if you do like to use that shortcut and keep it switched on, and it is irritating to have my work interrupted because I have to restart the app. It would be great if the developers could fix it in the next update. Otherwise, the app is great for drawing and sketching and I would definitely recommend it.
My favorite art app :>
by 💜💜anmals💜💜 on 2020/09/27 19:28
I have used lots of art apps but this one is my ultimate favorite :>. I really like this app and I use it a lot for my art. I’m not really sure the reason I like this app so much, it might be because it has a nice loose/free feel like the way I draw. All I know is that different artists have different styles and like different art apps (if they use art apps), so look around and find an app that works for you! Just keep trying and you’ll find what works best for you :>. Just some suggestions for things to add to this app are an option to have a grid on the canvas to help you line things up (if this is already a feature and I just can’t find it then sorry, I'm being dumb). I don’t know why, but when I draw on paper with grids or lines my art looks better than on paper without a grid. I think it helps me line up my art and see where I should put parts of my art :>. Another thing that would be a great addition to this wonderful app is the “fill” option filling in lines that are on a separate layer. I like to keep my layers really separate (like, REALLY really) so it would be great if this was a feature :>. It doesn’t need to be, though, just a suggestion. Thank you to the fantastic developers and the company who made this app, I really enjoy it and hope you keep up the good work!! :D
Excellent App, a Couple Suggestions
by TheTRUEgge on 2018/06/21 01:29
This is a fantastic drawing app, and I am continually astounded by the things it can do. It doesn’t lag even when I have an admittedly absurd number of layers hanging about, and the line correction tool is extremely well-done. However, there are a couple of things I think this app would benefit from. As a webcomic artist, I would personally really like the ability to import new fonts- until then, I’m stuck doing my formatting in photoshop, which works, but using two different applications (On two different systems, notably) is not ideal. Additionally, I would love to be able to ‘favorite’ tools from various classes and have a personalized toolbar where they are- this would save me a lot of time scrolling through the options and remembering which brush I really liked that one time. I would also really like an easy way to copy/paste selected areas on the mobile version (I do all my work on an iPad Pro and it works fantastically), and maybe an easier way to make straight lines symmetrical to the edges of the frame- the only way I’ve found to work consistently is the rectangle tool, which isn’t always the best option. In any case, I adore this app, and I’m really happy that the full version is now completely free. I can’t wait to see the new features you implement in the future.
It works better than ol’ SketchBook Xpress
by BARninja24 on 2017/10/23 16:13
About a year ago, I downloaded the SketchBook Xpress app a couple of days after I got my very own iPad Pro, it worked just like the one I have on my Mac computer, but as the months passed, the SBX app told me to ask the developer of this app to update it or just continue with it’s current version, I went to the App Store and this one had no new updates, so I was cool with drawing my digital art in that current version anyway, but a year later after I got my own iPad Pro, I updated my iPad Pro to iOS 11, and when that SketchBook Xpress does not work with iOS 11 updates, it put me back to my home page, and then I started looking around to see if I could find my old drawing app’s name and see if I could update it from there, it was not on the App Store anymore, so I came across this app, watched three of it’s demonstration videos, and so I deleted my SketchBook Xpress app good bye, and gave this new app a try, and... it actually works better than the ol’ SBX app did once, and I’m already getting the hang of using this new drawing app, I feel like I have much better control on the Autodesk Sketchbook app than I did the SketchBook Xpress app, so I like this one now, I’m still learning how to use it, but I know I’m to love this new drawing app from this day forward.
Could use some improvements
by ElegantParadox on 2019/01/15 05:45
As a hobby artist, this app is great for my doodling and sketching needs. It’s fairly intuitive and I love the variety of brushes with the option of customization for endless types of brushes. I also really appreciate the Copic brushes and colors because I’ve always loved the color selection of copies but have never been able to afford them. I do have some suggestions and bugs though. I seem to be unable to rotate my phone and get the canvas to rotate, which is rather annoying. I checked that my rotation lock was off, but it wouldn’t flip. Another issue I have is with the brush library. I tried multiple times to move my favorite brushes from different sets into “basics”, which is quickest to access, but sometimes, it randomly deletes brushes and I don’t know why. It’s really quite frustrating because I have to go into preferences and reset my brush library every time it happens. I’d like to be able to create my own custom library sections to store my favorite brushes, or simply add a “favorite” button and copy any brushes that I tag as my favorite to a section that resides at the top of the library. All in all, it’s a good app and I’ll definitely keep using it, but I could be made more intuitive and easy to use. Also, huge thanks and kudos for making this app free, I really appreciate it when good tech is available for free.
Very intuitive BUT...
by SpiritHope on 2017/07/30 19:35
I recently purchased and iPad Pro and an Apple Pencil to use for sketching ideas for painting and to display reference photos while painting. I purchased the top 5 sketchbook apps and have given them a try, Autodesk is my favorite so far and here's why: The interface when you are sketching is very intuitive, especially if you've ever used a Wacom tablet before. It's easy and simple to adjust your brush settings mid-sketch. I was happy with my first sketch experience before purchasing the Pro version but I will say after purchasing it, you do get quite a lot of neat tools. Overall, creating in this app is a breeze and so much fun, I love it! The BUT: The "Gallery" interface where the sketches are stored needs to be improved, the menus and navigations don't make sense and I find myself getting frustrated. My only other gripe is that you cannot use the multiple app feature while in this program. In most of the other sketchbook apps you can pull up a reference picture in Safari or your a Photos and draw while viewing it, but not in this one. If they could allow fully functioning multiple app use I wouldn't have a need or want for any of the other sketchbook apps.
Love it
by yeeyeejuiceye on 2019/12/20 14:48
Okay, if your more experienced at drawing digitally, then this isn’t for you. But if your like me and your new to it,I really suggest this app. It lets you import photos and you can outline your photos, you can make speed paints, and it lets you use copics for free. If you don’t know what copics are they are alcohol based markers, great for mixing and blending. Their usually used for graphic art and other very intense art (and I mean like more than a sketch.) I’ve been using it for a few days and I just broke my cheek bone. It lets you zoom in so if your like me and you just broke your cheekbone and your half blind (which is very unlikely) then you can still make art and it doesn’t look sloppy. It never really messes up and glitches like ibis paint. You don’t need a apple pen to use this, although you could use one if you like to. The only reason I’m giving this 4 stars is because it is a little glitchy when your sizing the photo to the size you want when you import it. I’d also like a little more copic colors, but other than that this is the best app for digital art starters. (AFTER NOTE) I’m not changing my mind on this app that’s it’s not great, but I’d love a few more presets for pages. Thank you for reading, I may make more notes so don’t think this is the last (Unless if I forget)!
Great App, with one Autodesk Flaw
by DasReichKaiser on 2017/11/17 14:48
Due to being a former CAD tech, I can tell anyone that the only features this needs, are a sizable grid, ortho type lock (straight lines), and the ability to use a basic coordinate center 0,0.. with built in scale reference object that can be turned on like the ruler, but, possibly two of them, meaning updating the ruler so a straight 90° degree angle for example can easily be made, with a basic scaling ability... and this app fills the gap for CAD techs like myself who worked on planning stage as well as the actual engineering plans (land desktop with civil), for your architect type drawings, to compliment or replace Illustrator/Photoshop.. But, yes, for architect type drawings, the lines producing a shadow if you cut and paste a layer makes the app not easily usable for production drawings unless you dont mind taking a lot longer and redrawing everything when you need to adjust/move something. Asides from these basic additions, and adjustment to how shadows/shading/blending is done automatically on line work, this app is wonderful. I need a razor sharp line, and spend a lot of eraser time if I use the tools built in to say draw a square because zoom in, you will see two/three colors of blended shading. So, now, the paint bucket does not work correctly in those areas.
I have a problem, PLEASE HELP!
by alpacaJin9 on 2019/10/12 06:37
Dear Autodesk Sketchbook developers, I used this app a few months ago, and I had a few nice sketches and drawings that were in my gallery. I really enjoyed it and all the features were easily accessible, making drawing a great experience. The thing is, I never saved the drawings, exported them, shared, etc. They were all on my phone and vulnerable. So, I hadn’t touched the app until recently, when I realized there was a new update. But I had a problem with my Apple ID ( I have an iPhone), and I could not access the app without updating ( which was something I couldn’t do!). In the end, my only choice was to delete and reinstall using a different ID, but all my drawings were gone, sadly. I never had the chance to save them. So is there anything you can do to help me retrieve my sketches, like a backup software or something else. I honestly thought that my drawings would be linked to my account and saved, but it was not. Is this a lost cause, or is there anyway you can help me? Thank you for reading, and I really hope you can help me find a solution to my problem. Sincerely, Concerned user
Got a glitch here! But great app
by Bluble witch saga 2 on 2018/08/02 21:29
Sketchbook is a really good app but I’ve been introduced to some glitches. While I was trying to get everything set up I always put the main layer all the way on top of coloring and stuff like that from a scanned sketch. While I was doing that I wanted to change the background layer to a color, and once I inserted the color it didn’t show up it was just an original color (white), I didn’t mind it but then I started putting color into the sketch (from a different layer below the main sketch)but then the colors weren’t showing up and when I looked at the layers they were there(I wanted to see the layers). At first I thought I did something that made it glitch so I restarted the app but the same things happened but then I did some experimenting and went to main layer and colored it, even thought I don’t do it I wanted to see what was wrong or try to fix it to see if anything was wrong, the weird is that the colors didn’t go on top of the sketch but instead the were below the main sketch I was so confused so I wanted to write these glitches. (SHORT NOTICE: I checked everything in the layers but there nothing that proved that it was my fault)
Almost Perfect
by Some_SpacedOut_Kid on 2020/06/12 06:26
I love love LOVE this app!!! It is far much easier to use than most other drawing apps and you get some very impressive tools for free. It’s the nearly perfect, especially for people new to drawing digital. Free and easy to use; basically perfect - but there’s just one issue... I like to utilize the Time Lapse feature quite a bit, as it’s fun to both watch my process and upload it for others to see. However, I’ve been experiencing an issue where the app doesn’t save my time lapse video, sometimes with a screen blatantly confirming the save has been uploaded to my photo library but not leaving a single trace anywhere on my iPad. This has been happening for quite a while now and is quite frustrating, to say the least. I’ve lost hours upon hours worth of recordings and I have no idea why. Is there any explanation? Are there any ways to recover the lost videos? Help is very needed, please and thank you. It’s quite depressing to spend over three hours on a piece, excitedly expecting to watch the process video only to have it disappear entirely.
Best
by jjkghjkl on 2018/07/22 23:16
Honestly I really love this app because it is just the best. I mean like you can record it too it’s like the best thing ever and I just want to thank the makers of this app so very much for making it because it is amazing I love it so much I can Make Recording‘s of it to that is just the best thing ever and I just really love the app I mean it’s not like everything I want let me just get my words together like normally speed draw things are on computers but this is so easy to use and the things are so clear and it’s really easy to use like I mean I love it and I just really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really love it and I don’t know if I’ve said this yet but I love it and thank you so much for making this app anyways I think I should end this book novels saying I’m making of a review here because I mean honestly I don’t want to make you waste your time on reading my review even though there’s other reviews but this is get a five star because it is amazing the end this was written by a YouTuber named koalations
Love it, but a bug :(
by The Ratings are me on 2020/06/21 19:56
So I’ve been using this app for like 5 months, I just draw mindless doodles and add stuff onto pictures of my pets. I loves this app so much, but today there is a bug and I’m sad. For some reason the color making thingy isn’t working (sorry if I don’t use correct words as I am only a child and do not know what it’s called), I can’t create colors for some reason. I don’t know why, I may just accidentally have turned something off. I don’t know, I can’t use half the features in this thing! I’m actually very sad because I wanted to create a little cute animated picture, but just can’t seem to be able to create colors. I’ve tried EVERYTHING that I know! I’ve closed out the app, I’ve created a new sketch, I’ve clicked about every button! I don’t know if I’m being stupid or if there is a bug, but I think I may just be being stupid. If you are the developer reading this (you probably aren’t), then please reply if you know a way to fix this, or if I’m being stupid! -EDIT Never mind I found out, I was just being stupid.🤣🤣🤣
Incredible
by b_mcintyre on 2019/12/28 13:54
I cannot believe how much is packed into this free app! With a full color spectrum (or copic marker colors) and the insanely large library of brushes, there is no limit to the types of 2D art one can create in this app..the marks left by each tool are so realistic/detailed, it will feel like youre working in your favorite medium IRL and not on your phone/tablet. My only complaint (and why i am giving only 4 stars) is with the interface itself. It is awkward and slow to change brushes or colors, and the “undo” button requires two steps to get to. There is a one step undo in the bottom left but it almost never works, seemingly only undoing a stroke when accidentally touched. All types of transformation (select, copy, cut, paste, transform, duplicate, etc) are found buried; worse, theyre not all even together, with some in layers and others in page layout (also where you’ll find Fill, which makes more sense with brushes no?) I do wish the UX were considered more, model off of an existing structure/format that has proven the test of time. Sure, alter it to fit the sketchbook aesthetic but no need to reinvent the wheel!
I love the app! Would definitely recommend.
by Poke your belly on 2020/07/14 21:25
I love this app! I know I haven't used it for long, but I haven't had any problems with it so far. I don't have much experience with drawing, especially with digital art, but I'm still really happy with the results that came out of this app. I first downloaded this app to test a stylus pen. It didn't work, but I honestly don't care. I'm still glad I downloaded this app. I first tried the app and thought, "Eh. It's not that special." Later on I tried again with a different tool and realized, "Oh hey, this is pretty cool." I began drawing sunsets with only the basic tool set. I thought the only tools were.. the basic tool set. And then I discovered the whole world of brushes and art tools the app had. I immediately thought, "This is gonna be fun." I would definitely recommend this app to beginners like me. It's perfect to practice your digital art skills, and really easy to use. And of course, it won't always turn out the way you want it to. But with this app, you can make drawing extremely fun and easy!
Fun for sketching, but...
by Jamanimal on 2020/08/19 06:37
I’ve used sketchbook on and off for years- it has my favorite sketch brushes and it’s really easy to doodle things in, the drawing itself feels really organic, I can draw like I’m drawing it on actual paper when I’m actually on a screen. That feeling is difficult for any other app I use to capture, and what keeps me coming back to sketchbook again and again. But the thing that drives me off of sketchbook and onto other apps in the first place is that coloring is a bit difficult without clipping masks on mobile. I’ve read that there are clipping masks available on the desktop version of the app, and I would really love for it to be added on the mobile version as well!! That’s pretty much all it would take for me to move to drawing on autodesk full time. The locking feature is an okay stand in, but I prefer separating my colors over multiple layers rather than keeping it all on one, because it’s easier to fix if I mess up. It’s frustrating that an app this nice is missing something a lot of other drawing apps have, especially when it makes the drawing process much smoother. Please add clipping masks to the mobile app!
A Very Good App For Beginners
by Hpy2destroy on 2020/02/09 05:34
I am not very good at drawing anything currently. I bought a pen/stylus for my iPad about 4 days ago to dabble in drawing. I had been doodling on this app for 1-2 hours a day, for 4 days and already I’m seeing improvement on my work. I don’t know if this app is good for more advanced art, since I’m as green as they come. But since I saw improvement in only a few hours, I would strongly recommend this app for other people looking to try out drawing. I liked the selection of brushes and the easy-to-follow interface. I was able to learn where all the important buttons were very quickly. It surprisingly wasn’t too overwhelming for me when I was going through the brush/pen/eraser options. They are categorized well and have brief descriptions to make it easy to pick an appropriate brush. And the fact this is free is an incredible bonus, this app feels like a paid-for app, probably because there’s no ads that pop up while you draw. It’s seems well polished for me so far. It has earned a five stars from me.
Please add keyboard shortcuts for iPad Pro!!!
by Cypress26 on 2019/04/06 06:19
I love using Sketchbook on my new iPad Pro (late 2018 version) - There’s a decent amount of brushes available and I haven’t had a drawing yet where I’ve reached my limit in layers. Some of the tools available are incredible helpful for some graphic design elements. I do wish there were a few more effects brushes added so I could try more new things with my artwork, but I can’t really complain considering all you get in one free package. One thing I can’t stress enough, though: this app needs keyboard shortcuts support for any keyboards compatible with the iPad. I have the most recent iPad and the Apple brand soft folio keyboard to go with it, but I am unable to use familiar keyboard shortcuts like Command+C to copy or Command+V to paste. Adding these shortcuts would save me and any other artists with a keyboard loads of time, which can be important when you’re on a deadline or just trying to get into the flow of a new drawing. Other than those two minors tweaks, I love this app and everything I’ve done with it so far. I can’t wait to see what else I’m able to create with it!
Erases My Work
by dora_the explora on 2020/04/01 18:40
I’ve had this app for over a year now, but only recently started using it again after maybe 7 months. As I’ve been drawing for a school assignment, all has been well and I was truly able to create an amazing drawing. Until the entire app froze. And in order to unfreeze it, I had to exit the app. The heartbreak I felt after 4 hours of working was surreal. When I came back to restart my drawing today however, I figured I ought to save every few minutes as I go along with my drawing in case of emergency. And so, I restarted my drawing and after 30 minutes, I decided to save the drawing. However, as it started to process, it turned to a black screen and exited the app all by its self, leaving my drawing unsaved and deleted. I’m really frustrated because the tools available with this app are so great, but I may need to find a new app to start over (for the third time) with in order to accomplish my assignment. As I think back to when I first started using the app, I remember that I previously had this issue, but I was able to resolve it by saving frequently. But as I test it now, it won’t save any amount of work I do.
Apple Pencil Glitch
by Dark_Kid_66 on 2020/10/12 23:41
Ii really like it, but it is rather hard to operate. I enjoy using it nonetheless. Thanks. Overall great app. Very compatible with Apple Pencil, although, and this may just be my iPad, it does glitch out from time to time and stops working. From there I exit the app and swipe around, the pencil working completely fine. It could be that I’m overwhelming the app, because without the pencil the quality is amazing, but it is rather frustrating to have to exit and re-enter. I like the functions very much, although the amount of buttons and layers is confusing but the videos, I found, were hard to access. Overall, great app, 8/10 would use for free sketching and drawing, realistic tools and wonderful performance other than one minor glitch! Please respond on how to fix, I know you are busy, but sometimes it doesn’t save what I did when it glitches out because of the pencil. I would like to know how to fix or at least what I need to do to make it happen less. Thank you, Autodesk Team!
I love this but one problem...
by MelissaBeth27 on 2017/08/20 03:50
Everything works perfectly and I love how easy it is to control and the smooth drawing but there's only two things wrong, every time I double tap in the corner to undo it it draws on my drawing and I have to zoom out to make sure I don't mess it up. One more thing, once I create my picture and when I go to color it in, can you add a fill bucket? Because I have spent over 4 hours trying to color that SMALL picture without messing anything up, in corners I've gotta lower the size of the brush then when there's a big open space Instead of spending another 30 mins or so I have to turn it up and again and then back down, I mess up I have to do the redo button and then it messes it up more. So what I'm suggesting, can you please add the undo and redo button to the top with the other buttons and then add a fill bucket? It would be greatly appreciated, it's not much to ask but I can deal the undo and redo button but I can not be spending 3-5 hours trying to color in my whole painting when I can paint it in just a tap of a button. Thank you.
Amazing app!😊
by AAG20079 on 2020/07/27 20:40
This is a amazing app best drawing app I’ve ever gotten this is great it gives you a little tour of everything when you go to draw. It has so many options of paint brushes and designs to choose from it also has an amazing layout! Lots of colors to chose from and it has a great gallery after you have pictures in your gallery you can do a slide show to show all of your amazing artwork. So far I have had zero glitches you can even write on your artwork if you want to all you have to do is tap on the T and you put in what you want it to say and there you go. If your not happy with it’s font you can the font so many choices to chose from and you can adjust it if you want. You can do sideways or you can even change the color of your word so instead of your writing on your pic be black you can chose it to be pink, white ,yellow,orange,blue & much more! it is definitely great and it does not cost any money or in app purchases💰I most definitely will have this app for a very long time! 😁😍
Best Art app out there!
by Akmomma25 on 2019/08/04 22:41
I have been looking for a good artistic app for a very long time, one that has a great selection of brushes and tools, and one that will let you use more than one layer, because most of the art apps I’ve gotten have only let you use up to three layers, and that gets pretty annoying. This app is exactly what I have been looking for. The detail is really good for being digital, and finally being able to have more than one section of tools really excites me. It is also a lot easier to use than most other art apps I’ve gotten. One thing I don’t understand is why you have to sign up. I’ve signed up to this app before because it gave me a free trial for a couple of days, and I loved it. Now I have been using this app for over a year and it is wanting me to sign up again. I’m a little wary of this, because I don’t know if it will randomly make me sign in to access my drawings, or just to use the app. So far I’ve been good. Thank you for making this wonderful app free!!
Very powerful (+ some ideas for stuff)
by jaxon boozer on 2019/11/28 15:11
I absolutely love this app. In my opinion, it's the most organized and powerful drawing app on the App Store currently. There's so many possibilities added as of now that exceed what any other app has in the best way possible, and I appreciate that. However, I do feel that it's missing a small handful of things that some other iOS apps actually do have. People might actually need these for certain sketches, but that could be prejudiced or biased, as this is what I've personally needed for some sketches. Here's the things I'd thought of: • Importing custom fonts for use in the text tool, presumably .ttf and .otf files. • Adding effects to images, text, and other pre-existing layers. (i.e., glow, stroke, blur, drop shadow, etc.) • More available locations to import photos as a layer, like iCloud Drive. • The ability to snap-align photos and text to the center of both axes, for accuracy purposes. That's what I think should be added, but they're all just my thoughts. It would be nice if you took at least some of them into consideration. I also noticed that the option to import photos from the sharing module stopped appearing. I assume that it must've been removed. If you could re-add that, that'd be nice, as I found it quite efficient and never had any problems with it. Overall though, Sketchbook is truly a wonderful app. I thank you so much for doing a great job with this, and I hope to continue seeing this app prosper.
Love it! But there’s a glitch.
by My Name Was Snatched on 2019/09/02 22:10
I enjoy the app a lot, honestly. It’s free, simple, and helpful. But there’s a bug that really irritates me, mainly because you can only get rid of it by downloading and redownloading the app, and the process of doing so can be extremely annoying and tiring. The glitch? Basically at random points in time, even after it’s been only 2 days since redownloading again, I’ll be coloring or doing linework, and the same color will look like it’s on another layer, despite it all being on one layer. It can seem minor, but it can be super distracting when it comes to the final product of the art, and makes the whole thing look messy. I have friends I asked about this, and they say they’ve had the same problem, and the only solution I’ve discovered is redownloading over and over again, frequently. I’d really hate to let this go, since I’ve tried other art platforms like MediBang, which proved to be super laggy and a generally useless and unintuitive platform. Other than that, I enjoy the app and would recommend to anyone.
Better than most free apps
by BucketOfTears on 2020/06/10 00:23
I’ve tried some other apps for drawing, but this honestly is my favorite. It’s great because it’s free, yet offers a good bunch of tools, and has features I haven’t really seen in others. From time to time I do have a small issue though, when using predictive stroke the app sometimes freezes, which makes me happy that auto save is a thing because it will just close if I wait, so closing the app completely on my own is my best option. This may just be me, but it doesn’t get in my way much, so I have no issue with it. The tools themselves don’t feel weird like other programs tend to, and there isn’t many ’hidden’ features so to say, so in my opinion it is really beginner friendly. And something I don’t remember seeing on any of the other free programs I have tried is being able to change an entire layers opacity, it helps when I use dark colors for my sketch and need to be able to go over it with clean lines.
THE GREATEST APP EVER!!
by ShinigamiQueen on 2018/04/03 15:14
Sketchbook is my favorite app by far out of all apps, not only digital art apps! It has so many amazing brushes and tools, not only that but it is so easy to use and easy to catch on. Normally digital art apps are set up like photoshop or illustrator but this one is different but still super professional. I love this app so much! I also bought the extra tools for $0.99, I’m so glad I did, it’s so cheap and it’s not monthly or yearly payments, that 99 cents buys it all and it amazes me how much so little can provide! I recommend this app to anyone I can. I am a 16 year old girl who goes to an art school and focuses on visual arts so I am trying to start an art career and expand my skill set by moving to digital art, I’ve gone through so many apps and I even have Procreate but I like Sketchbook much better. Only thing I would recommend to add to an already perfect app would be even more brushes, perhaps hair brushes, splatter brushes, and industrial brushes for grunge or cracked looks.
PLEASE FIX THIS
by iapo on 2018/09/27 17:58
when u make a wallpaper on sketchbook then u save it for some reason it’s slightly off it don’t fit the iPhone X screen correctly.....the reason I know this l...is because I like to take a screenshot of my home screen with apps on it and then move all my app off the first page and it looks like you have apps there but it’s really just the screensaver but I can’t do that now....because wen I use sketchbook save because I do like to add stuff to the screenshot....I save it and wen i apply as home screen....the apps don’t line up and on the top right corner u can see a thin white line seeing that it’s not flush with the screen of the iPhone X.....and yes I know about the motion turning that off or on that’s not the reason it’s not lined up did it both ways this is the only app that does it.....but this is the only app I use to add to my screenshot I take to make my home screen wallpapers....please fix this....can make a wallpaper without it because don’t....willing to send proof of what I’m talking bout if necessary....I just need this little fix
Love... Unfortunately -
by mandamatter on 2020/08/22 15:58
I seriously love this app. Over procreate, even!...I found this app is so much more accurate to what I'm looking for when it comes to how I expect something to work or a brush to stroke. To be honest with you I only downloaded sketchbook because I saw the awesome feature that you could scan from your RL sketchbook and easily turn them into something digital. Seriously something incredible. Please help with this one issue! It's the only reason I did not give five stars. When working with an illustration, when I go to tap on any menu item, when the options pop up they only pop up for a split second. This gives me no time to look through the brushes or even save my drawing or really do much of anything. It's made everything so incredibly irritating that I find that I can't even use it until I get this problem solved. I was toggled with the palm rejection settings, preferences when it came to touch gestures, everything. What do I need to do? Thank you so much for this amazing app!
Really great, but important glitch
by GalexyWolf13 on 2019/08/04 15:55
I really love this app because I’ve been working on it for over a year and it’s never failed me. I love the whole category of tools that you can choose from to customize. I also really appreciate that the layers are easy to access, unlike the app I was originally using. I haven’t run into a glitch since a few days ago, and I keeps messing me up. I have an over 40 layer detailed sketch I made to work on light, and it kept on crashing. I went back in (I only had about 7 layers at the time) and it had deleted parts of my line art. I went on for an hour or two and nothing happened, until it crashed again and it had deleted part of a different layer of line art (I was closer to 40 now). After that, even if I saved it, it would crash and delete part of a layer. Now it’s deleted a whole layer of coloring, a layer of line art, and part of a layer of my background. This may not be a glitch, just a problem with my storage, but I’m curious to why this is happening. Thanks!
Glitch
by pleaseread1234 on 2018/12/28 09:33
The app is very great! I’ve been using it for about three years though there’s been a glitch that has recently been happening, whenever I’m done doing a drawing, I exit out and see that the drawing I was making shows a previous look of my drawing, I thought it was just a bug that made it look something that was done already, I clicked shared and saved image but I checked the image and it showed the previous version of the drawing, I was confused why it wasn’t showing my drawing that was fully done. I know I may not be explaining this right, for example I was making this drawing and I never exited out until I was finished, once I was finished I saw that the drawing wasn’t the exact same finish, it showed part of the process of the drawing but not the finished, then I saved the image and the image didn’t save the finish, only the part of the process. Hopefully I explained that ok? Anyways you guys keep doing what you’re doing!
Love this app but it does have some glitches😕
by dreamyllv on 2019/01/18 19:44
I lovvve this app! However, I’ve been using this app for only less than a month, and I’ve already experienced some pretty irritating glitches. 1) Something happens with the eraser and the app just randomly decides what lines your allowed to erase and what your not erasing. Like if you left that line alone for a bit, when you go back to clean it up it won’t let me. In general too it just won’t let me erase certain lines... I’m flattered but no. I’ve had to change my tool and use white to do it which works but is more time consuming and pointless when it can just be fixed. Also if I want to save my drawing and come back to it later, I can no longer erase anything that I saved previously - annoying. 2) Now because of this eraser issue when I had to get off my iPad for a little, I left my app open while I shut the screen. When I came back my drawing was only partially done. All the work I had done between a time and the time I had to leave my iPad, was erased. ☹️ Good thing I took a screen shot before I left, but having to cut and paste it back into the app...annoying. 3) It’s been freezing up mid-draw... also annoying. It freezes for about ten seconds. Not that long but sometimes when you really into whatever your drawing it gets frustrating! Lol. Also the ruler is slow reacting. I don’t mind but figured I’d let the developers know. When it’s fixed I’ll come back and write a 5 star review🤩
Download at your own risk
by good game but ..... on 2019/08/16 12:11
So all I can say is I love sketch book auto but then you’re probably think why do I have such a bad rating the answer is simple I spent multiple hours drawing something and I was going to be my best work yet but then out of the blue sketch book auto just stops working it’s not a lag or anything then I get a pop up saying something went wrong and I have to save any unsaved work so I start saving and then sketch book just stops working agin closes the whole program and doesn’t work no matter what I do I can’t even close the app !!! So I teen my computer off and just wait for almost the whole next day when it still doesn’t work so I shut down my computer and do Force close the app and lose hours of hard work this went one to happen a few more times but I continued to use SketchBook simply because there was no better option in my opinion please sketchbook figure out how to fix this and have a better auto save or something I don’t like this review but I need people to know what there getting in to do for any one reading this download app at you’re I own risk
Great but a couple little problems.
by iScottyjD on 2018/04/16 22:48
I feel like this app is great, and although I’m not a very great artist it still so easy to use and very noob friendly however I do still have a few problems. The first would be the lower back or forwards buttons; it’s just hard to hit those lower corners with those buttons there. I see the convenience in that position but I think the buttons are fine on the tool bar. My other problem is a little bigger than just a button position. On every different sketch I do there is always some place on the “paper” where it just doesn’t work. I can draw anything in that region and nothing will show up, I don’t even if it’s a software glitch or what but, I do know that it’s not on my end because I literally just got a new iPad. So a fix would be great! Overall the app is great, just those little tweaks and its a 5 star app. I hope that you read this comment and get to work on those tweaks, thx!
Sooo awesome!
by Dame Angmar of the Iron Legion on 2019/06/28 19:19
I always keep seeing these awesome computer-animated artwork which I could never do myself on paper (and if I tried it never looked as good as I imagined it to) so I basically gave up trying until I found this app. It’s so easy to use and I love it! Being able to use multiple types of brushes and blend things together has made my life so much easier when I want to draw things in a specific style I can’t do on actual paper. I would suggest this app to anyone... other apps just seem so complicated, glitchy, or even not complicated enough! With Autodesk Sketchbook I can do pretty much exactly what I need to do no problem. However, I do have a suggestion: Is it possible to adjust the dimensions of the canvas? I also like to design forum signatures and profile images, but I just can’t get the shape right because it’s always a rectangle (starts out with W 2000 and H 1500). And when I resize it, it always adjusts the size but not the overall shape. My signatures always require more width than is available, and my profile images a more square shape, otherwise they do not fit right (if at all). It’s just the shape I’d like to adjust... not the size. I can resize images separately. Could you guys add this? I’m sure it would help out with the drawing experience of more than a few users. Having the same shape of canvas just gets boring after a while lol. Thank you so much for the great app!
Great app, sad upgrade
by Alex Heizer on 2018/04/07 04:28
I love the app. So much that I bought the Pro version 2.x! However, when iOS updated to 11, Pro 2.x no longer worked and I read a lot of people completely lost their work. Thankfully, I always sent my saved files to iCloud and was able to reimport once I upgraded. Unfortunately, even though I paid for the Pro version, I had to pay again, despite the fact it was because iOS upgraded, not because I wanted to. But all software makes you pay for upgrades, so that’s how it is. The big issue is that so many people lost their work because of the upgrade. This is because of two reasons: There was no warning; and the new version didn’t access the previous version’s existing data. 1) There should have been warnings all over the place that you WILL lose ALL of your previous work if you upgrade. This is the developer’s fault. 2) The upgraded app should have automatically just used the same folder as the old version. Easy peasy. This is also the developer’s fault. Fortunately, if you sent your files to iCloud, you can copy them to Dropbox, rename the extension from .skb to .psd and import them from Dropbox. iCloud won’t let you rename the extension, but Dropbox will. It’s a bit of a hassle, but the above two issues are the reason I dropped my 5-star rating down to 3. It’s the best painting app out there, despite having bonehead devs.
AMAZING
by jenxndjsbx hi sossc on 2020/06/17 18:47
This a amazing app! This is definitely a solid 5 stars! What the app I wanted was a app like procreate since it cost money and I didn’t want to spend 5 dollars on something that I knew I would forget about in a few weeks, but this app is the best even tho it’s not Exactly like procreate it almost is like it I ended up searching what apps are like procreate and this app was the first option and looked the best to me so I decided to give it a try and oh my gosh it is super fun I have been using ibis paint x for about a while now and I wasn’t that interested in it from the start but I still used it anyways because it was the most “decent” app I could find non the AppStore I wish I have downloaded this app sooner so it could cure my boredom of quarantine from the start. I really recommend you use this app! Although I wish there was a blender so you could blend stuff in but you won’t regret buying this app at all!
This app is the best I have seen so far! 🖌
by Midnight Shiner on 2020/08/05 21:30
Hi! This review is coming from a beginner in the drawing community. I used to always draw on IbisPaintX. It was to only good app I could find that had somewhat decent brushes, smudge and blur, etc. Then, my friend who has been drawing for years show me this app. After a while, I ended up getting the app. This app has SO MANY more options! The controls are fairly easy to learn, that may be because I am good with tech though. My art has improved a bunch in the mere months I have had this app! Many of my successful drawings are on this app! I have not seen any glitches, it hasn’t froze, etc. The gallery, saving options and anything like that are easy to learn. I recommend this to all artists! And don’t worry about purchasing anything, absolutely everything in the app is free! That is the best part! Well, that is all I have to say! Have a nice day or night whoever is reading this!
I would give it a 4.5 if that existed....
by Mssf5 on 2020/07/26 20:58
Hi, Autodesk, I would like to say that this app was great, and I would give it a 4.5 out of 5 stars if App Store could make users do that. Here’s why I’m giving a 4 (technically 4.5) instead of a perfect 5: 1. Sometimes when I close the app only for a while, and then come back, the screen is just black. I do this a few times? Still a black screen, and once I even had to shut down my device and restart it. Thank God that Sketchbook autosaves... 2. This is on the drawings. Sometimes, dark black lines will appear more faded, or even not look as clean, smooth or straight. What’s up with that? (This has only happened to me twice, not on consecutive days or weeks) 3. This is just a recommendation. Can you give sketchbook users to set a background for a sketch (like what FlipaClip does), or even be able to make us export it as a transparent PNG file? I hope that you will hear me out, and I’m not forcing you, but it’s best to respond. Thank you!
The ONLY sketch app you need
by J. Enjo on 2019/11/10 09:00
This has truly been the greatest sketch/drawing/design app I’ve had. Downloaded a LOT of apps and slowly but surely I deleted Concepts, Paper, etc. because this app outperformed them and with a cleaner interface. I even use this as a photoshop/image editing (light of course) app and gets the job done insanely good and considering the latest photoshop release, this app currently beats it in its own game as well. I’ve sketched, designed, image edited on this and it’s so intuitive and so many features you find new ones even after using it for a long time. In conclusion this is a VERY well polished app, and it’s FREE. It’s mind blowing, I’m so thankful this has helped bring so many ideas to life, from product design, car design, sketching, etc.. Big thanks to the developers!! Hopeful features: In Text, would be great to have color picker to change letter color and also higher quality/resolution text.
BEST EVER
by Latrice09 on 2019/05/07 21:29
Mk so when I saw the video for this app I KNEW it wasn’t gonna be as good as it says, and since I had been using Drawing Desk at the time I thought you would have to pay for all the luxuries that "come" with the app like you have to in Drawing Desk (btw SO do not recommend that app). But I decided to still give SketchBook a try, and I am TELLING YOU this is the best free drawing app. I can’t say it’s the best in the world cuz there’s still REALLY GOOD ones like Procreate. ( My only problem with Procreate is that it costs money but if you’re looking for a non free, super LEGIT, everything you could ask for, fancy drawing app I would recommend that one) (oops I got off subject). ANYWAY I LOVE LOVE LOVE this app and would never delete it. I DEFINITELY RECOMMEND THIS!! You have every tool imaginable every color and it comes with an automatic camera thing that records the drawing being made!! SO MAKE SURE TO HIT THAT GET BUTTON! 😉 YOU WILL NEVER REGRET IT 😄
not rly good
by lxvleypxtato on 2019/05/16 11:54
So i wanted to use a new drawing software for my tablet and i thought, *oh this app is good!* and it was at firrst.. the drawing and sketch part was good but when i wanted to color u cud only use 2 layers and i was like “thats kinda bs but whatever” and i always use more then 2 layers i use like 11 but 2 was good for a basic cartoony character. so i tried again to do more then 2 layers but then k realized u have to pay which os sorry, retarded. so when i was coloring the hair like always, i had tk be aft (away from tablet) real quick, then i came back and colored the hair and some of the hair i disnt get earlier and it made a darker color. it looked like when you had ur opacity to 80 and colored on top on the same thing. then i was like ”ok ill just erase it and color again, might be a glitch.” and it wasnt i did and it looked really badder so i erased it and i went back to the old dark brown in the middls of the hair look. and then i forgot you cant add more layers u have to pay for it which is stupid. i wanted to add a background but i couldnt CUZ U CANT ADD ANOTHER BACKGROUND. i wouldnt download this app its ok if u wanted to but ok.
Cool, but Confusing
by samviol on 2018/12/28 01:02
I haven’t really used it much, but so far, it’s really great for drawing and stuff. I drew a decent amount on it so when I got a new iPad, I got the app and started drawing a bit. I was out of town when I got it and I couldn’t remember what my password was so I decided to wait to get home to sign in, but after I signed in I didn’t see any of my drawings I had drawn on my old iPad. I found my old iPad that has my drawings and everything and I’ve tried to find a way to get the drawings onto my new iPad, but I still don’t know how. As I was looking for a solution, I found that my new iPad has both Local Storage and iCloud Storage, but my old iPad only has Local Storage so I checked if they were somehow different accounts and if they both have the most recent update, but everything seemed all right. It’s hard to tell if I’m missing something or not, but so far that’s the only flaw I’ve found. (Sorry, I don’t really know how to end something like this...)
Crashing issues
by Aimlessburd on 2017/08/30 00:57
Hi autodesk team, I am a long time user of the sketchbook app! I had it on my note 5, iPhone 6, 7, and iPad Pro. Recently I have been dealing with consistent crashing issues, I'll set the scene for you. I paste a picture using the import from gallery icon, then I accept it after I have resized it, I then go to change my utensils color from red to black. I click on the floating pill shaped icon and bring up the color wheel. I select the color and then I tap outside the color selection pop up. The app takes a second and then force closes. I really enjoy being able to draw on my tablet and I further enjoy being able to use autodesk, I am also familiar with the cad program that is also offered from autodesk. So being able to continue to diversify myself with more and more autodesk programs is enjoyable. Since my crashing issue I have resorted to using other illustration apps. I have a paid sketchbook app and this issue is really turning me off from this app. So please help me resolve this issue!
Bored in Quarantine
by Weird Gurl watermelon on 2020/05/16 20:07
So the whole quarantine thing is going on and I was looking through apps that I downloaded awhile ago then I saw this app and I was like ohh I don’t remember using this so I went on it and I’m so glad I did. Everyday I go on there and I find something different to use that’s so cool to draw with. And I can make wallpapers and quotes and post them on Pinterest it’s super fun and I never wrote reviews this long so you know it’s worth it and I recommend using a stylus with it because it makes it easier to draw with but that’s just my opinion, and the thing is I’m not even good at drawing but I can do sooo many cool things that doesn’t require you to be really good at drawing and if you are good at drawing it’s really cool, or if you’re good at painting but you may not have the supplies at the time you can paint on here(me). So I definitely recommend this app for anyone.😁
I loved the app, but then it kept freezing...
by Hello kitty meb on 2020/04/01 05:19
In the middle of drawing a project that I was actually kinda proud of, it just started to freeze soo much and it wouldn’t let me do anything after that. So, I left the app to try and fix it, bc ofc the freezing messed up my drawing a bit when I was trying to get it to work again. I leave and go back on and it wouldn’t let me undo. So I had to fix the mistake that happened. I was in the middle of fixing it, and it froze again. So I did it again. I left, went back on, and fixed it. Right when I started to draw again, it froze. I left, went back on. I put my pencil on my ipad and it froze immediately, and did that about 2 more times before I finally gave up and left the app. The one drawing that I’m actually proud of, I do on this app and I can’t even finish it. I was really happy with how it was turning out and I just really wanna be able to finish it, and hopefully work more with it. Just, please try and fix it asap :(
It is at least a 4 star but...
by Dari Negron on 2019/11/20 21:28
I've been using this app on my phone for years and it has always been working fine, but it is until this year that something weird has been going on. Every now and then an album would multiply and make from 1 to 5 copies. It would do this on its own and every time I would try to delete the copies (since it takes so much space and it is quite unnecessary to have so many) it would delete the original album as well, EVEN THOUGH I would start by choosing ONE of the copies to delete. Problem is, I go to trash to recover all those drawings and they don’t even appear there, then WORSE problem is, I go to my files and the drawings are not even there? I even check the ‘Recently Deleted’ section of the files and they are not there either... it’s as if they never existed. I like this app, I like its features and it’s always been one of my favorites, but it’s come to the point where I don’t feel safe drawing there anymore because a lot of my work is getting deleted.
