Description
We're replacing adobe draw with two new apps that will provide you with the tools, features, and functions you need to create. Take a look at Adobe Fresco and adobe illustrator for iPad to see which app will work best for you: Adobe Fresco is a free drawing and painting app with the same vector brushes you love and use in adobe draw. Your Draw projects will automatically transfer to Fresco the first time you sign in so you can start right where you left off with beautiful vector, pixel and Live brushes, and more advanced tools like selections, unlimited layers, masking, shapes, and livestreaming. Adobe Fresco is free, but you can choose to pay for more storage, more brushes, and Photoshop on iPad access. adobe illustrator, the vector-based software used my millions, has been reimagined for the iPad. Create logos, icons, illustrations, and graphics with a design toolkit that includes type, gradients, shape-building, and precise vector editing tools. There is no additional cost for the app if you're currently using adobe illustrator as a Creative Cloud member. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ MORE STORAGE (Optional in-app purchase) If you need more Creative Cloud file storage, you have the option of purchasing an additional 20GB for $1.99 (US dollars) a month. The recurring payment is automatically charged to your iTunes account. To stop service, simply go to your account Settings and turn off auto-renew at least 24-hours before the end of your billing period. Prorating is unavailable — when you turn off auto-renew, service will continue until the end of that month’s billing period. The Fine Print You must be 13 or older and agree to Adobe’s terms and privacy policy, viewable at: http://www.adobe.com/special/misc/terms.html http://www.adobe.com/privacy/policy-linkfree.html Use of Adobe mobile apps and online services requires registration for a free Adobe ID as part of a free, basic level of Creative Cloud membership. Adobe online services require an Internet connection, are not available in all countries or languages, and may be subject to change or discontinuation without notice. If you enjoy using adobe draw, please leave a review. It really helps!
Try Afinity instead

This app really only exists to try to get you to buy more Adobe products and then subscribe and pay fees every month. Go with Affinity’s suite of products. Much more useful and affordable, and they are reminiscent of when Adobe products used to be manageable.

Le best drawing app ever created. Period.
by @ewport on 2021/04/13 11:25
As an artist I have been looking for the best app for drawing digitally ever since I got my iPad mini back in like 2012. This app has everything and more. You can layer different blank transparent or image layers on top of each other which is great for tracing sketches/drawings/paintings/etc.. made in real life. You can trace pictures taken irl, found online; draw your own artwork and layer it over a picture. You can create like portfolios (albums) of your artwork made on the app, save your artwork to your camera roll, upload your artwork to socials & my personal favorite is you can pick up where you left off on your drawing each time you reopen your art on the app. Create customized colors, customizable brushes, zoom in or out as close/far as you would like and the best part is you can use this app to draw on an iPhone and its free! The quality is better then you’d expect!! Perfect app for an artist to be used on any device<3 worth the download! ~ @ewport and diorfather on tumblr

Good but bugs
by MzBrowneye on 2021/04/08 15:52
The bug is when I draw in the background it does it in a another frame or erase
I love this game but
by I LObE DISSs OmG on 2021/04/07 17:39
There’s a few glitches that I honestly annoying like when I tried to draw in the background it immediately goes to the normal layer and also it’s a collectors very often but anything besides that this app is amazing
copy layer from 1 project 2 another
by ~~~Michael Wood~~~ on 2021/04/05 02:31
is that its like an extension of mind. it really allows one to just. do a drawing. i love the brushes. simple. forces u to learn the device n pressure points. i love the rgb and color wheel. i dislike the needing of syncing my projects to cloud. i want to airdrop and pic up on my mac. i also want to see the standard .ai file implementation & this extended to the files app. i would love a better shape library and a way to more easily make smaller shapes. a new gesture perhaps? i also think its time to detatch from the pc. i think we should have mirrored export options 4 these mobile devices. it rly should b iphone > ipad > done. when i fire up my pc platform with a drawing display im looking for something very different as when im using my mac i have an entirely diff flow as when im using my touch laptop. your main areas of focus should b illustrator ipad illustrator traditional illustrator mobile i would keep the ui/ux the same for mobile OR like you did here i might even suggest u reinvent and totally ditch this now legacy ui. the fact is tho. many of my ideas start here. start w the best & u can get the best. this draw program on ipad with a pencil was good. as well as the countless hundreds of projects ive emptied into my phones. its literally on my first page & row of apps. praise dont get higher than that. adobe is best at this. their suite is simply. a creators joyous playground.
Amazing !!!
by shedraws on 2021/04/01 16:40
update: - can you add double tap undo (major priority) and add in Pantone color palettes/ability to import palettes - never get rid of Adobe Draw I got a really good iPad this year - the iPad Pro and just did some amazing work today - just . messing . around App needs obvious further features - like a color wheel etc Still ... I might have to toss my trad dip pen/calligraphy pen 😂
Love this app
by Peepgamehoot on 2021/04/01 12:05
It’s so addictive, convenient, and super easy to use to expand amongst your imagination. I love this app and I hope it never leaves. I’m always drawing on this.
yikes
by a mad and annoyed kid. on 2021/03/26 23:13
ADOBE IS BACK AT IT AGAIN! Woo! I love it when it doesn't work how I want it to. Zooming in and out, drawing, and erasing lags so bad. It’s not my device or my apple pencil for I’ve tried other drawing apps to use and they work normally. Not even my own fingers work. The limited tools that you are given make it worse. Of course, you could adjust in each of the tools’ settings but who would want to do that?
Trouble
by Bivca on 2021/03/25 01:22
I can’t even rate the app, cause I downloaded it and about to Sign In with my Apple ID and that stress cause each time I clicked on, it cannot open to me while I have a good internet connection
Adobe Draw is AMAZING!

I’m working on a project but instead of white background it randomly changed to a grid and I can’t change it. Can someone help me get back to white background to finish this project and when I saved my photo it came out black not sure why
amazing

Still having trouble
by Qwerty Tin on 2021/03/08 18:43
I’m still having trouble with the erasing when I erase it won’t do it and 10 minutes later it erases but over all good game
Don’t buy this app.
by chaoticeye on 2021/03/06 00:16
You’re limited to a certain amount of tools without the Purchased version. Upon trying to use the layer options you have to hold the pencil on the layer. Actually super ridiculous. When you try to use toolsCompatible with layer options that aren’t on the screen and are hidden with an arrow. If you scroll to the right it immediately scrolls you back to the start. You can’t even open the layer menu without holding the layer down. Also impossible to just delete a layer. Trash app. Waste of my money. Should’ve listen to the internet and got procreate it also starts your color on white with a white background. It’s a joke if you don’t know that you don’t think it’s working
It’s okay
by AnonymousGameCritic on 2021/03/01 13:31
I got this a little while ago and it was working fine, the only thing that I didn’t like about it was that there was no easy way to blend. Today I tried to add a picture and it just wouldn’t do it. I don’t know if it’s my iPad or the app’s fault. It’s a little bit glitchy (the lines end before I lift up my stylus) but if you just want something to mess around with, this is fine.
It’s not the best
by love hjn on 2021/02/27 16:51
I have definitely had better experience I like white board a lot more check it out
Good

Minor problems
by th esimsuena on 2021/02/19 00:46
Hi, I have used this app at the previous school that I used to go to and it was great, this was before I had an Apple Pencil. I love to use my Apple Pencil to draw all sorts of cool things but with this app I found it really hard to have smooth lines because of pressure issues, the slightest change in grip of movement would set it off. I looked in the apps settings and nothing was there. It ticked me off because I love to trace images but this just was not working. If you have a regular stylist it still works though. I also wish that it could have a way to blend colors together. And a million other things.
Lost EVERYTHING
by mgms_15 on 2021/02/13 19:45
After 2 years using the app I could not get it to send to my desktop app. I decided to log off and back on. It deleted EVERYTHING. over 200 sketches lost
Amazing app but

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Love the app but I’d like to see somethings added
by 天龍かえん斎藤 on 2021/01/27 01:52
I absolutely love this app I haven’t had any problems with it but there are some things that need to be added like lines of symmetry and perspective lines like in other apps but there’s don’t else I’d like to see put in this app that I think would set it apart from most if not all other drawing apps and that would be adding a 3D posable figure male and female with adjustable proportions for drawing people, anime, etc it would be a lovely feature I’d like to see added and would be very useful for drawing cartoons, people, anime and personally I would get a lot of use out of it
Pretty Good but needs more adjustments
by poulgngjfj on 2021/01/24 03:51
First of all I would like to say: it’s a great drawing app The problem I see is that there is no blend mode. I always want to make more complicated drawings but I can because I don’t have the time to draw every line so it looks more blended. Next, I’m on an iPad mini 4 and I love the app but it’s just so hard for me to draw things with my fingers and I tried to download Adobe iPad but my iPad wasn’t used enough or something. Lastly, I think us ordinary people should be able to post our drawings to other people. I tried and tried but I couldn’t find how to post pictures to everyone else. Theses are just some ideas that I think Adobe draw desperately needs (sorry this is so long)
love it but PLEASE I NEED TO BLEND
by blendless person 💔 on 2021/01/18 07:31
i absolutely love this app but my main complaint for not giving 5 stars is that it doesn’t have a blending brush or any blending toooool at all please add one or more brushes soon please i’m begging!!!!!!
Good tool to use
by boknowshonda on 2021/01/18 05:02
F + _this is my first time using this app and I am having fun
Goodbye yellow brick road
by Uncompaghre on 2021/01/12 06:01
I love this app! But....it’s sad to hear that Adobe will no longer update this simple, beautiful, intuitive app and they plan to replace it with Fresco which has a terrible user interface comparison to this sweet, sweet app.
Pretty good
by NJKitchen on 2021/01/06 15:33
Great for beginners!
Doesn’t work well
by bill david on 2021/01/06 01:15
Wanted to love , just too many bugs ridiculous, not working well with Apple Pencil
I recommend it to all!
by I1E4 on 2021/01/04 22:30
I think everyone should get this app for drawing. It’s very easy to use,and helps improve your art, and style

This app should stay because it’s fye
Not enough
by Imaurer on 2020/12/28 23:00
Too little to do No text or image editor. Drawing is moderate but not as good as other apps such as Sketches a app meant for all ages which works great for free.

Must create an account to use
by Drew Lutes on 2020/12/27 21:01
I’m so tired of having to create ANOTHER account to use apps. JUST SELL THE APP FOR THE PRICE YOU NEED. I need to doodle in vectors, I don't need to store my garbage drawings in a cloud service, none of it is that important. So I guess I won’t be using this app.
starts to lag and freeze every 5-10 seconds you are using it
by Emmanuel7/11 on 2020/12/27 19:36
it starts off great when using it but over time it starts freezing every 5 to 10 seconds and it makes it very difficult to do anything.
Amazing
by Crazy Monkey22776644 on 2020/12/23 22:04
Wow I love this app so so much for apps like procreate it’s a waste of money I had procreate and it sucked but this topped it for no money love love love it

I really like this app but I would love if you could add more brushes plz other than that it’s amazing
No just no

Look you first get on be like this is cool but when I put my brush on the Canvas it became big TO big then IJust the size no just no Don’t recommend
didn’t save!!!!
by Olivia Terra on 2020/12/18 10:22
i drew multiple things and then didn’t go back into the app for a while. recently when i wanted to draw something else i realized that my drawings didn’t save even though i’m logged in!!

by Muntasir_Munim on 2020/12/11 06:22
So far this is the best vector art tool I’ve ever use. Really it’s easy to use.
Glitchy and difficult to use
by too grunge on 2020/12/09 23:38
I’ve had this app for three years. It’s great for making large vector drawings, but the usability of this program is really lacking and it always has been. I thought it would get better over time, but it honestly hasn’t and it’s kind of a bummer. Rotating layers could not be more difficult, creating and erasing lines is unnecessarily hard, and exporting is a joke. There’s no streamline in the actions inside the app and it’s overall difficult to use, even as an experienced digital artist. Again, good for making large scale illustrations or vectors, but pretty much terrible in every other way. Mega let-down.
Would be great if it worked properly
by Megan2313 on 2020/12/09 16:52
Never able to send files to my computer on the first go. Last time I had to log out of cloud and log in again. Now having it happen again. Would be great if I didn’t have to troubleshoot every time i try to use it!!!

Way to glitchy
by mringman on 2020/12/05 19:52
I’m just trying to draw and it doesn’t even recognize that my finger or Apple Pencil is on the screen. Then it takes a bit and draw a giant blob in the middle of the screen. Any other recommendations for drawing apps. I’ve tried all the ones by Adobe and they all do not work.
Love this app
by CinD* on 2020/12/05 00:34
I love this app a lot. Please don’t get rid of this app. I use this everyday. Thank you!
App keeps crashing.
by lilpoplil on 2020/12/02 19:29
Wont load my files and keeps crashing. I used to love this app.
I love it but there’s two problems
by okjgfdgij on 2020/12/01 21:17
So the first one is there’s no help button in the settings. How am I supposed to let you know that there’s a bug that needs fixing or I need basic information about the app. The second one is there is a problem with uploading photos to a project. I was going to find the help menu and figure out what to do from there but apparently you don’t have one so I’ll let you know from here. It’s worked great up until now. I cannot upload any photo from my phone onto the app to work on a project, the only way I can get a picture is to either take one, which isn’t possible for what I need to do, or upload it to an app as a file. And I just tried the latter and let me tell you it wasn’t great. The quality of the photo dropped tremendously and it’s all pixilated. And it would’ve been so much easier to upload it from my phone. I’m pretty sure it’s either a bug with the app or it’s just a me problem. But you need to fix the first problem. You need to have a help menu and have some frequently asked question and answers. And probably a place where people can ask you those questions. It’s a great app apart from these two issues.
- It's alright
by Frank Blunt on 2020/11/24 20:53
I can’t get images to import like they are supposed to, so I have to copy and paste as a work around, which is annoying. The space to draw is crowded by the brush selections. I wish they could be tucked away like the layers panel. It’s EXTREMELY basic, but cool for sketching on the go
Used to love- now I can’t use it
by starenby on 2020/11/22 22:09
Doesn’t let me upload images anymore. I’m so upset. Used to loved using it to create digital art of animals that was perfectly accurate with placement of markings and now I can’t even add an image layer to a single project.
Add Image Layer Not Working
by NanaNayaMK on 2020/11/22 08:08
The option to add an image is not working. I have exited the app, selected the photo, and did everything else suggested but to no avail
Really good
by BLIMPYTOOT on 2020/11/21 22:04
It’s a good app but they need to get rid of when you swip with two fingers it deletes all you work
Too much freezing
by AamayaACc on 2020/11/18 04:50
I’ve had this app for like 2 years and I stopped using it for a while but when I came back on the app like after a year I couldn’t up load pictures from my camera to the canvas to start sketching. I even RE downloaded it and turned my phone off but it just keeps lagging. Before I wasn’t having this problem everything ran smoothly but I don’t know now.

Love it, maybe add more brushes?
Pretty Good
by Preeeeecious on 2020/11/08 21:45
I’ve been using this app for a few days now and I really like it. The reason I gave it 4 stars is because some of it is a bit confusing. When I try to add an image to the workspace from my phone gallery it doesn’t work. Also it would be a bit more helpful if you added a help desk to the app, so people can ask questions. Overall, it’s pretty good.
Great app
by ants626 on 2020/11/08 14:49
This app is good to you if you know how to use it.
Love this app BUT
by Goldie Acorn on 2020/11/07 02:38
This app is perfect for designing quilting plans on photographs of quilts. For some reason I can no longer create an image layer with a photo on my iPD though.😢
Almost there
by Hsisolbsghjjb on 2020/11/04 03:39
The eraser leaves marks 🙄 really thought I was getting the hang of this, it’s hard without a stylus but possible. The eraser thing really breaks it for me. (Edit) the eraser is leaving marks only on certain projects for some reason, I didn’t screw with the settings. And there is a harsh line when you fill things in with color sometimes and not other times which I hate. But other than that this is actually really fun to use, you can zoom in really far, you can use the shapes the same as a ruler in real life, as straight edges or curve or whatever shape you are using it’s pretty cool. I’d still say that it’s nearly there for me. 4/5.
Crashing and app freezing.
by MCFALSE20202 on 2020/11/03 20:53
Whenever I open the app it won’t let me select anything and has a buffering ring always in the middle left corner of the screen, I can’t fix this issue so I always have to uninstall and reinstall the app. Devs, please fix this issue as fast as possible.

THIS APP IS PERFECT!!
by I like to write reviews!😀 on 2020/10/31 12:04
This is right off the bat THE BEST APP EVER! Because it is sooooo easy to use. I am not a pro however I do enjoy drawing and painting. I was very happy to find out that this app is FREE! NO hidden fees! I highly recommend this app. Little note/tip: I recommend you use a stylus or finger whatever works for you but I chose a stylus because I always wear coffin nails. TO the creators: THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU FOR MAKING THIS APP!!!!!!!!! NEVER CHANGE IT PLEASE!!!!!

No Pen Tool
by Swellendegeneres on 2020/10/26 19:43
The pen tool is literally their logo but it’s not even included in the app. Impossible to edit your line work like in the original illustrator. Absolute waste.

I get it that is like a try out from your full apps..just thinking that it needs a lot more to feel like we actually using a smoother app. Shaping. Coloring. Editing.. is super good app for the super basic content and I’m surprised by this app. Have a 5 star. But can be 10 star

It’s so slow, it’s almost unusable

Adobe draw
by abu523 on 2020/10/14 19:18
It is a really good app and you can draw a lot it has a lot of space
My Default
by Live Life for God on 2020/10/14 14:38
Update: Well, this has been pretty much my default app for drawing small pictures. As long as the PPI is high and the drawing area is small, I don’t lose as much picture quality. I utilize the fill feature a ton but wish there was a way to fade/shade. In addition, it would be nice to share/merge a project with another. Currently, I have to copy to clipboard then I can use it in another project. This doesn’t allow editing to the “image” that was imported as it considers it an image and not part of the project.
Dope App
by WavyKaylee on 2020/10/12 22:54

When trying to pull up an image the canvas remains blank. App is basically full of bugs
Such a good app
by AwesomeAura6438 on 2020/10/08 16:16
I love the style of the paint. This is an premium virtual art maker for free. What could get any better. Also I see you fellow gamers.

Ehh it’s not letting me put the picture but I’ve used it before and it’s good
Ehh....

The brushes are normal but there is no pencil I gotta say I like the things here that aren’t In Any other thing but Ibs paint X is better in my opinion. Thanks for trying and I liked using this. Still not my number one digital art app.
I love it but HATE the save option
by Iam Lono on 2020/10/05 18:07
I love the creation part of using this app but the only option to save to the $**** AdobeCloud?! Seriously??? I want to keep my files on my iPad!!! Fix this now! Users want access to files directly and don’t trust that cruddy little cloud. No, I don’t want to send it to my desktop to save. I want access all the time with the original file ON MY IPAD.
Wonderful

Like foreal. I love this app. I use it for graphic design along with YouDoodle. Had some freezing and some glitches but still totally worth it. They are quick to fix bugs and issues especially if you report them. So updates are a must. I find the whole calligraphy effect amazing when using a tapered brush. I go from digital paintings to graphics to presentations slides and even clothing design. I use it a lot for clothing design sketches a lot also- reason being -you can add layers for days. So I can draw layered patterns and whole outfits. I will draw my seam lines on one layer and then lace etc. there is one thing that will turn this into a miracle app. Please Adobe add a blender tool! If I could utilize this to do more realistic shading rather than layers of lower opaque colors I could use this app for even more things. Also if I could record while I’m drawing. That would also be amazing. Otherwise get this app! My little brother is 13 and doing graphics! It’s an easy learn. !
Mighty for the small projects
by Ave_Fish on 2018/08/04 17:23
As far as the quality and ease of use, this app takes the cake. I’ve struggled to get into digital art because the apps are usually so unfriendly to users, but simplicity and easy to follow tutorials really helped with this app. There’s not a lot of tool options, but they’re all the tool types that I really need. Plus the fact it easily converts to a timelapse is a awesome plus. However, I am sad to say I’m currently looking for a different app as I quickly outgrew my use for this one. If all you plan to do is sketch something quick, this is the app for you. But any real project worth time and effort causes awful lag. I have my iPad Pro up to date, as well as the app, but my larger projects just can’t be supported by the functions of the app. Sometimes it’s a few second delay for a single line to show, opening and closing layers takes ten seconds to load, the fact that if you forget to “convert to timelapse” every few minutes then it will never load, or the zooming/rotating taking another ten seconds to load. It’s bad enough I don’t want anything more to do with this app anymore. Additionally, I’ve learned to work around the lack of a smudge or blur tool, but there are lots of times it would really be perfect for the looks I’m trying to create.
Starts off great, becomes completely unusable over time
by SpikeMitchell on 2019/03/27 16:47
I’ve been using this app for about a week now, and I have to say, after growing accustomed to the layout and gestures, I’d really been enjoying it. I made some stuff I was really happy with, and if all had stayed as it was, this would be a 5 star review. However, a few days ago, the app gradually started to have issues, in that it began freezing up every 10 seconds or so, for about 3 seconds every time. To be clear, I have a new iPhone 8 and a new iPad both of which are having this issue. It does it even when you’re doing absolutely nothing in the app, or when you’re drawing, or resizing or pulling up a menu. It just happens inconsistently, and for seemingly no reason. I’ve looked it up online, emailed adobe, and even gone as far as deleting all but 6 simple pieces of my art and bought extra memory for a small price each month. Nothing has improved the problem, I haven’t had a response yet from adobe, and it makes it nearly impossible to complete anything unless you’re content with the program stopping you half way through your pen strokes to have a think every so often. Extremely frustrated and disappointed.
copy layer from 1 project 2 another
by ~~~Michael Wood~~~ on 2021/04/05 02:31
is that its like an extension of mind. it really allows one to just. do a drawing. i love the brushes. simple. forces u to learn the device n pressure points. i love the rgb and color wheel. i dislike the needing of syncing my projects to cloud. i want to airdrop and pic up on my mac. i also want to see the standard .ai file implementation & this extended to the files app. i would love a better shape library and a way to more easily make smaller shapes. a new gesture perhaps? i also think its time to detatch from the pc. i think we should have mirrored export options 4 these mobile devices. it rly should b iphone > ipad > done. when i fire up my pc platform with a drawing display im looking for something very different as when im using my mac i have an entirely diff flow as when im using my touch laptop. your main areas of focus should b illustrator ipad illustrator traditional illustrator mobile i would keep the ui/ux the same for mobile OR like you did here i might even suggest u reinvent and totally ditch this now legacy ui. the fact is tho. many of my ideas start here. start w the best & u can get the best. this draw program on ipad with a pencil was good. as well as the countless hundreds of projects ive emptied into my phones. its literally on my first page & row of apps. praise dont get higher than that. adobe is best at this. their suite is simply. a creators joyous playground.
Wanted to love it...
by progresscity on 2020/10/03 15:21
I wanted to love this app because I love the Adobe Creative Suite, but there are just way too many issues when trying to run on my brand new iPad Pro. I can't believe this has a 4.7. The gesture to undo is two fingers swiped to the left... Okay, that's a little weird, since every other app I use is either two fingers tapped or three fingers swiped to the left, but okay. But in order to move around the canvas, you also use two fingers. So good luck trying to move around, you'll be undoing like crazy. And since there's no way to turn off drawing with fingers (so that only the Pencil is recognized), there have been a LOT of times where I tried to move left and it undid something, so I tried to redo it but instead the app decided I was trying to draw... so now I can't redo what I never wanted to undo in the first place, and have to manually redo work. This is such a ridiculous oversight it makes me wonder if the app was ever tested. On top of all that, it's also super laggy on my brand new iPad Pro, so I'm not sure what that's about. I spend a lot of time drawing a stroke and then sitting back and waiting for my work to decide to show on the screen... I expected so much more from an Adobe app.
Great!... Until you try to get fancy...
by Los chulos. on 2018/11/13 09:20
I’ve been using this program for over a year now, and for how simple it is, it’s honestly not only surprising but also highly impressive with how much one can do with so little, and i would fully recommend this for beginners trying to get into digital art. However I do have some complaints, despite me regularly deleting old works and, according to the app, having lots of data space left, should you try to get too detailed or complicated with your art, to program starts to act very slowly to the point of crashing (it does save automatically and for that I’m VERY grateful for, don’t get me wrong) but it would still be nice if the program could handle everything to a stronger extent. Also it would be very cool if they added a text feature, they even have pre-made speech bubbles, but no text features to put in them...Other than these things I have not complaints, and I would totally recommend this to a friend.
Has many issues.
by Carrilynnnn on 2020/04/04 05:22
In the beginning, it used to be good and quite easy to draw. It’s various markers and features enabled to draw easily. However, quite recently, it started to freeze quite often. Even if I zoom a little, it would freeze for approximately a minute and a half, and then just as it stopped freezing, it would freeze again. This made it impossible to draw and quite agitating as well. On a drawing which would usually take an hour to complete, I took two hours, because of the glitches and freezing, and as I went to erase the mistakes, it froze again, and erased almost half the drawing. And another issue was that if I left the app, even to reply to a message or simply because I wanted to do something else, it would immediately exit the drawing and I would not be able to undo anything, or make any changes to the previous version of the drawing. I used to love this app, but now I’m starting to loathe it and will learn how to use a different app, if these issues are not fixed. Do not waste your time on this app, because it is just a dead end.
Crazy Awesome Integration, Fun to Use
by ash8658 on 2019/09/06 20:57
I recently got a 9.7 in iPad to use for design and illustration. I initially thought I would primarily use Procreate for design, however while looking up Illustrator, I came across this adobe app. I am amazed by the seamless designs, the personalization, the easy integration and transfer capabilities from this app, to Adobe Capture, to sending the design vectors straight to illustrator on my computer within seconds! This is a High quality app that any designer should integrate into their design process. One recommendation: what I like about Procreate over this app is the variety of brush sets, the fine alterations you can make on brushes, and overall design capabilities. If Adobe Draw can get closer to ProCreate on that level, there would be absolutely no need for me to use ProCreate at all. Other option: work with ProCreate to easily transfer designs as vectors into Adobe applications.
Adobe, get rid of the ruler
by rich_blondes on 2018/03/30 23:41
It is so annoying to have to maneuver the ruler around , which is not easy and you get marks in parts that you didn’t plan. It is very simple and Sketch Club, and Autodesk both have the option of making straight lines . It is annoying because you are connected to Adobe capture shapes, but the ruler is just stupid, messy and there is a very simple cure that every other drawing app has. But your connected to my Creative Cloud library, and I use SketchClub to render architecture straight lines. Then have to go to this app for my capture shapes library. I hate that you cant just decide straight lines, for once please listen, and if the ruler is needed for something else, keep it but every time I try your mobile apps their is always something, better and it’s annoying that you can’t get the basics down, please check out your mobile apps competition. Capture is probably the only app that is original and innovative. This ruler is a very idiotic, feature that never wants to move. OPTION DRAW STRAIGHT LINES OR FREEHAND
Adobe Draw
by lsume82 on 2018/07/03 16:27
I understand that there is currently no cad app for iPad pro. As a mechanical engineer, I’ve spent many years making my own drawings since it’s faster than trying to explain what I want to a cad operator. I taught graphical communications and descriptive geometry at one university and taught algebra at a different university and am now retired. Having held titles such as chief engineer and engineering and maintenance manager I’ve hired and taught a fair number of engineering students and practicing engineers through my career. I retired as an executive at a medium to large defense contracting company but I still enjoy doing calculations and wish there was a basic cad app for my iPad pro. I have the A9X chip and plenty of memory. A simple app that allows the user to draw lines and input the angle of the line would be great. This app does not seem to offer the basic ability to draw lines at an input angle. Just being able to solve a sum of vectors would be great. Perhaps I’m missing something that this app offers. Anyone who is very familiar with this app might prove me wrong in my assumptions which I would be thankful for. Thx
Amazing App with small hiccups.
by TheMusicFriend on 2020/05/10 15:04
I’m a beginner to vector tablet drawing, but quickly learned with this great interface. Props to adobe for making such a sleek and user friendly app for artists and noobs alike. I rated the app only 4 stars because of one pesky glitch that seems to keep cropping up. Occasionally when I’m zoomed in on a segment of my canvas, and am erasing with the eraser tool, the app will become slow or lag or freeze up or just not register my erasing gestures. Backing out to the main page doesn’t fix it either. The only thing that fixes the issue is selecting one or two different tools and either/or drawing and zooming out before returning to erase. It’s a small complaint for an otherwise brilliant app. I hope adobe keeps supporting this free app as it really is a fun and impressive tool.
So crisp and smooth!
by DexySleeze on 2019/08/08 17:41
For what i need this app is amazing. Like others, i wish there was a blending/smudging/blur tool. But with enough time and key stroke placement it does the job well enough. I wish we could add brushes though! Also, can we maybe be given the option to customize the layout more!? I’ve messed up so many layers because they’re right on the right hand side...where i accidentally switch to another layer without noticing and mess things up. I like being to able to quickly switch between brushes and colors but i have to make the controls all disappear to avoid that happening and it’s crazy annoying! It pains me to give 4 stars....because really it’s an amazing amazing tool to have. But it is also such a drag to use! I know i have to use this because of the superb quality so I just accept my fate...but my pieces take a lot longer to finish and frankly I lose all motivation when battling an app that is counterintuitive.
You don’t tell me what I can use cause of my age
by chicken nuggets rule the world on 2019/04/09 04:02
Look you can’t tell me I can’t use this app or create a account because I’m not at the right age look people I’m trying to practice drawing to get better and I don’t always have a piece of paper to pull out and draw on and I’m trying to get into art to make it as my career so can you respect that and tell me oh you can make a account because of community guide lines oh well I’m going to make one if I want to so let me make a account because it’s just dumb you can’t let a person a child that knows the right and wrongs so can you please fix that because it’s just rude to tell people what they can and can’t do please make it to where all people can use the app please I want to have fun by drawing and learning new things and you are just stopping me from doing what I want to do so please allow all ages to make a account thank you taking time to read this is you did please fix this.
Yes... but no.
by Izi✌🏻 on 2017/12/17 06:09
YES, this app can help you create amazing things, IF you can figure out how to work the freaking thing. Congratulations and my applause to whoever can work the controls, but in my case, it seems absolutely impossible. I have created pieces that I am quite proud of, but after spending hours on end working on a piece it would always end up being all for nothing due to a lack of one single detail, weather that be the sizing or accidentally pressing something that seems irreversible because my non-artistic and non-technologicaly capable brain can’t figure out how to control and complete my artwork. The list goes on, and I’m sorry to whoever has faces the same frustrating and tragic ending as I have; which is why I have finally come to the conclusion to delete this stupid app, along with my courage to keep trying. For some it has and will be smooth sailing on the ocean of creativity and excitement of finishing a new masterpiece, BUT for my countless others who I have known and have faced the same sorrowful ending, such as myself, it has been a rough and challenging swim to shore.
Great app!
by anartistontiktok on 2019/09/16 22:10
I’ve downloaded a few other drawing apps before and this one is the best free one! I should invest in a pen to draw with and I’ve only been using my finger on my phone screen but I haven’t let that stop me from making super detailed characters. Thanks for such a great free app! My only complaint is I can only zoom out of the largest sized paper so far and it doesn’t allow me to draw anything too large, I’ve only been able to draw a character full body a couple of times and I couldn’t get as much detail as I would like, but, no major complaints at all since it’s free, I only have it on my phone and I don’t have a stylus lol, so that much is really a personal preference, as well as wanting more texture tools to draw with, but again, it’s free (I think?) so I’m content.
Great App! Just some features it could use...
by Universalzam on 2020/05/05 11:05
I love Adobe Draw, it is awesome. It has taught me lots about drawing, and has all the features I need to improve my photo realistic drawing styles, except for blending tools. I don’t know if it’s just my bad skills, or I just can’t find the right tools, but Adobe Illustrator doesn’t seem to have the tools I need/want to blend my pictures. A paintbrush feature (watercolor and/or dry paint) or a highlighter would probably be sufficient for that. Also, the discover section could use a search button. I would like to be able to search for certain drawings, instead of just having to scroll and hope I find it. That’s all the suggestions I have right now, Thank you Adobe Illustrator Draw!
Cool app!
by hfcfg x x F cccv on 2020/09/10 18:42
Awesome and brings me joy but this is also a tiny warning for kids like me! So before u get this app just be warned u NEED A EMAIL account. For me this was not an issue lol 😂 but I know some kids don’t have a email account so I just wanted to say. But I have a given email account my parents gave me. Also another thing I would like to point out is that I had to lie about my age because I was born 2008 and when I put it in it said I was too young 😭 but another thing to watch out for it askes you for your first name, your last name, and your date of birth!!! This is unacceptable and I put a fake name and a fake date of birth cuz I didn’t want a stupid drawing app to know my personal info! Another thing is it askes you where u live! I think just asking for an email is enough! 😒 ugh anyways this app is the go too when I’m bored
Suggestions for improvement
by laughbee on 2018/05/11 02:06
I enjoy using the app, but it’s still frustrating at times. They need to fix the palm/fingers creating unwanted marks when touching the screen or zooming in or out (i have Draw with Current Brush selected but it still picks up my fingers when I zoom out etc). Def need no limit on layers, also they need to add a gesture where I can select an object by holding the pencil over it, Ps has that select current layer option. If I have 20 identical objects as in a pattern it’s insane looking for the one I want to move. Also, I wish if I selected one color it got attributed to all the brushes, I’m using several brushes drawing one object and have to manually change colors when I pick a different one. Hope the Adobe team tweaks the app more and of course it’d be amazing if they had custom brush support! But then people won’t pay for Ai, right?
4 out of 5 stars for one simple reason
by narashibear on 2018/07/22 02:53
I would be debilitated without this program. I rely on it for many uses ranging from professional to personal. I have given it 4 stars instead of 5 because you are REQUIRED to purchase an Illustrator subscription in order to save your work as anything other than a jpeg, making this program not free after all. For professional use, you likely already have the program and this is just another tool to add to your stock. On the other hand, if I were strictly a personal/pastime user, it would be very disheartening not being able to save in different formats based on my personal use. But all in all I truly do love this program. It is my go-to vector drawing app.
I love it but there’s two problems
by okjgfdgij on 2020/12/01 21:17
So the first one is there’s no help button in the settings. How am I supposed to let you know that there’s a bug that needs fixing or I need basic information about the app. The second one is there is a problem with uploading photos to a project. I was going to find the help menu and figure out what to do from there but apparently you don’t have one so I’ll let you know from here. It’s worked great up until now. I cannot upload any photo from my phone onto the app to work on a project, the only way I can get a picture is to either take one, which isn’t possible for what I need to do, or upload it to an app as a file. And I just tried the latter and let me tell you it wasn’t great. The quality of the photo dropped tremendously and it’s all pixilated. And it would’ve been so much easier to upload it from my phone. I’m pretty sure it’s either a bug with the app or it’s just a me problem. But you need to fix the first problem. You need to have a help menu and have some frequently asked question and answers. And probably a place where people can ask you those questions. It’s a great app apart from these two issues.
Do you know why I like this app 💯 stars if I could
by KatherineEP on 2017/11/23 21:27
I like this app because it’s a great art app and for beginner drawers this is just a question, how do post your pictures on discover other than that this is truely amazing 😉 ESPECIALLY I love watching my drawings with the time lapse button I have this rule that my parents won’t let me go on my iPad for the week but on the weekends so I asked if I can ONLY USE Front row math Epic reading 📖 app and of course last and especially not least THIS APP now these are the reasons I LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOVE this app 😊But here is suggestions can we please cut and paste and can we please copy colors of pictures?if so I would if I could ask the apple company to add 💯 $tars
Delightful vector art application
by Old_Pines on 2018/10/31 14:11
I have adored working in this app from way back when it was called Adobe Ideas. The subsequent updates and revamps have made the app stronger and more versatile. It’s a genuine joy to use. The only thing I’d love to see is more compatibility with active styluses (styli? I guess it’s either). I recently received a SonarPen after backing their indegogo campaign. It works well in MediBang Paint, but there’s no support for it in Draw or Sketch, yet. Looking forward to having pressure sensitive line control without paying $100+ for a stylus I’ll lose, drop, or have battery issue with. (Granted, the 3d Touch on iphone 7 and above functions as pressure sensitivity, but I sometimes need the larger screen area of an ipad.) Other than that, this is a fabulous app. Absolutely recommend it.
Bugs!!!
by Violet E on 2019/12/12 22:51
This app seemed really great and I took the time to explore around a little bit. I finally got excited to dive into art again. I started doodling a little and as soon as I started using the eraser tool the app struggled to load anything. The erasing I did wouldn’t show up and I couldn’t tap anything else. I tried closing and reopening the app and I fiddled around with my WiFi a bit, but I couldn’t get it to work. If this is an issue with an easy fix please let me know! I had searched a while for an app as simple as this (because I’m new to digital art), but could still make a quality drawing. As a side note, my only other complaint is the lack of options for brushes. A small selection makes it easier to pick and choose, but too small of a selection doesn’t leave much room for exploration.
Works ok but...
by WendyB223 on 2019/05/27 01:11
Please, please can you integrate another way to send/save files other than the direct upload to illustrator? Sometimes it works fine, but if it doesn’t, it’s an hours long process of figuring things out, and that’s with the advice on Adobes website. I’ve done everything, checked that the account is the same on desktop and app, made sure everything is the latest version, etc etc. yet still, it’s hit or miss if this works. Latest advice is to sign out of everything, turn off all devices, turn all back on, resign in and give it another shot. This is just an unacceptable workflow when there is no logical reason as to why the transfer is not working. Can you just make it so we can save a file and upload it where we need it? The cloud, iCloud, Dropbox, etc?? This would make many Adobe Draw users lives much easier.
Awesome but Some Concerns
by Gotta Fix The Game on 2017/09/22 19:36
So I love this app because is very easy to use and has many options to it but theres some things that should definitely be added! First off There should be an easier and much better way to shade so maybe a water color utensil should be added which could be much useful! Another concern of mine is that I don't know how to delete or move around my libraries which I need and want to keep organize so unless its just a really hidden feature it should be added! On last thing is that whenever I fill in something with color all the time I see these really thin lines around where I filled it in and that really bugs me and Makes it look like it has a white thin outline and thats not what I want so please help me out here and add feature to fix these problems thanks!
Absolute garbage and completely unusable
by Nick...A... on 2020/03/26 23:23
I would give this app a rating in the negatives if I could. It was unbearably slow and the controls were counter intuitive. The fill bucket tool barely worked, the brushes were always too large regardless of how much I shrank them and had to be completely altered to work acceptably. The layout was inconvenient. If I was trying to draw anything, and was zoomed in, the app had to load so I could move my picture to the next section. I’ve never had this problem with an app. I followed their tutorials but all it did was glitch and lag. I wanted to smack my head against the wall out of frustration because of how unusable it was. Procreate is better by leaps and bounds, but I was trying to find an app to make vectors with. Extremely disappointed. Save yourself the misery and skip this piece of garbage. I can’t wait to delete this awful app.
It’s good
by RyGuyDaMan on 2019/08/20 03:26
For those of you wondering how to get even thickness on those line strokes go in the settings of whatever pen your using and turn off some of those features it has already on. Once you figure this out it’s easy to convert your logos into vector graphics. Also if you want to add a image into this app to work on it create a new layer that’s titled “image layer,” the image most be saved to your device preferably the photos app that’s already on your device. This and Adobe Sketch can be easy replacements for Photoshop and Illustrator, if your in to creating your own graphics, and so far it’s been free. Can’t complain too much. Nice job guys.
Why do I need an account?!
by $$$ Spent on 2018/04/26 02:09
I paid an absolute fortune for this app, many multiples more than I’ve paid for any other app. At first I was able to use it without difficulty. Then technical issues with my device forced me to do a hard reset. Now I can no longer access this app without creating an account that will allow Adobe to invade my privacy, distribute my data and bombard me with SPAM. I cannot even access support without creating this invasive account. If this were a free game I would expect to surrender my privacy; it’s the reason I don’t download free games. For what I paid, Adobe should respect my privacy and leave me alone. Since I’m not going to be allowed to use this app I’m asking iTunes to refund this purchase. Before you buy this know that, in addition to the very expensive purchase price, you are agreeing to be tracked and aggressively targeted for marketing.
Best Drawing App Out There
by Lolliepop101 on 2020/05/02 22:13
I have never experienced a better drawing app, ever! Super easy to use, with swiping for undos and redos and a great but simple layer menu. The only thing is that this is vector system that doesn't have gradients or blending options. It's pretty easy to get around that though with some semi-transparent layers for a cool effect. You can also have unlimited projects and works of art, and you can have a lot (A LOT) of layers. It also has a line smoother feature that doesn't adjust the line drastically like some apps. It's calibrated perfectly. Like I said, best app I've ever uses and it's how i create all my art.
Not bad, but kind of buggy
by AGould05 on 2020/03/19 12:58
This is a pretty good app overall. It's easy to use and understand, even for someone like me, who has no experience with digital art. However, I wish this app had more tools, like more brushes or a blending tool. Also, it freezes a lot when I'm using it, and especially when zooming in while drawing. It sometimes shows a percentage that it's supposedly being zoomed in by, but doesn't actuary zoom. It seems sort of unpredictable, but I'd say it happens about 2/3 of the time when I try to zoom in. It's actually very annoying not to be able to draw precise line art and fine details, and I really hope this gets fixed soon. Other than that, it's a pretty good app, and I'd say it's great for beginners.
Bittersweet.
by tellingpeopletoavoid on 2019/08/11 16:17
I’d love to give this an amazing review because of how convenient it is and how it works with adobe software but if we’re being honest after I’d say about 1 year of using your app it slowed down out of no where. Currently can’t even zoom in or out without it buffering as well as line marks lagging therefore making almost impossible to correctly draw even a basic shape. It was great while it lasted but in comparison to say autodesk draw and the tools they provide with the rate you guys charge for your software it should be a night and day difference imo. Now if you can provide a fix to the lag I’d be all over this app. I’ll note as well I’ve tried troubleshooting best practices.(deleting re downloading, resetting phone etc)
Great!🌸
by Jojo dances🎃 on 2018/05/29 15:05
This app is SOOOO reasonable especially for when I animate. It’s definitely more professional than PixArt😏 When you use Adobe Draw you come up with your own ideas and not anyone else’s. When you use PixArt there is a little button with an exhibit of trees etc. But anyway when you tap it a search bar comes up and you can search up different thing such as eyelashes, eyes, lips and so on. Honestly I think it doesn’t let you be creative like Adobe Draw does when I animate. Oh and if your wondering why I gave it a 4 star it is because of when you have the smallest little space in between two lines and they don’t let you fill but besides that it is an AMAZING app!💙🖌💙
Love new updates but want more

The newest updates are all great and were much needed. The one thing that I REALLY wish existed would be the ability to send the illustrator file to the creative cloud or directly in an email without having to export it to illustrator on a desktop. I need to send illustrator files for my job but do all my work on iPad and it’s very frustrating to be able to do 99% of the process without ever having to touch the laptop and then having to make sure I’m near one just to be able to send someone the Illustrator version of the file. Just let us export to an illustrator file and send via email! Also why is the background not pure white and why can’t the background be changed at all???
It deleted everything.

I have been using adobe draw to draw logos and labels for my company. I designed 10 logos which took probably around 30 hours in total. I open it almost every day to work on them, and today I opened it and everything was gone. I have spent so many hours perfecting everything for my company and now it’s all gone down the drain. I tried backing up my phone and it didn’t work. I tried re-logging in to the app and it didn’t work. I even went as far as to delete the app and re-download it. But nothing worked. I contacted them about my issue and the customer service was horrible. I emailed them about it deleting all of my files and was rudely told that basically I’m wrong and that doesn’t happen and it must have been something I did. I will not be using any adobe apps from now on.
Really great but . . .
by Briaahlove on 2020/09/30 21:41
This app is really awesome for digital sketches, but I have also noticed that it tends to freeze and delay a lot. With some of my projects, it will not do this, but with others it will freeze as I am coloring or zooming out/in. I am not sure if it is the type of project I am doing or if it’s something else, but I don’t believe it is the type of project because I have done projects like this before and it never did this. It could be the latest iPad update that I have. I would love for this to get fixed soon. If it could, this would be a five star rating. I love the app, but I can’t use it for a moment until I figure out the issue.
Possible bug
by Masta_Tubby on 2017/10/12 05:11
I like this app, great stuff, it tends to lag when zooming in/out but that may be just my iPad, but anyway you know the transform feature, how you can move a drawing in a layer, it selects my item, but it selects a bunch of white space. Say you make 2 squares in two different places, then you erase one and transform the other, when transforming the square gets selected but also the area where the square used to be. So I go and erase whatever is in the area, which there is nothing in the area, but when you transform it it still selects blank space, I’m not sure it’s a bug
Pretty Good but needs more adjustments
by poulgngjfj on 2021/01/24 03:51
First of all I would like to say: it’s a great drawing app The problem I see is that there is no blend mode. I always want to make more complicated drawings but I can because I don’t have the time to draw every line so it looks more blended. Next, I’m on an iPad mini 4 and I love the app but it’s just so hard for me to draw things with my fingers and I tried to download Adobe iPad but my iPad wasn’t used enough or something. Lastly, I think us ordinary people should be able to post our drawings to other people. I tried and tried but I couldn’t find how to post pictures to everyone else. Theses are just some ideas that I think Adobe draw desperately needs (sorry this is so long)
Simple, easy to use, but stopped working
by Bibliokitten on 2018/12/04 19:12
I used this program for three days. There aren’t many features, and I hadn’t figured everything out yet (Annoyingly, couldn’t find a way to save files with anything but the default name, which is a real pain. Hopefully possible to do, and I just haven’t figured it out). But it was so easy to use that I ignored that. Unfortunately, it suddenly began to lag horribly. Trying to draw, erase, or zoom might take over 30 seconds to register. This is a brand new iPad Pro, less than a month old, so I don’t think it’s that it can’t handle the program or anything like that. It’s extremely frustrating, but I fear there won’t be much help for it, as I see the same problem reported over a year ago without a solution.
Um no
by Sandbag(*☻-☻*) on 2020/09/02 11:40
You can’t tell me i can’t create an account because I’m not allowed in. Oh you want my social security number and my credit card number how about my IP address if you do some people use this app to practice oh and I’m just an innocent 10 year old who wants to practice well... back to the deleting board ugh apps are so much scams and another thing is when I was in the process putting in my password (enter a password that is not common I had to sit for 40 GOTDAMN minutes to do that and after all that I CANT GET IN if you want to make this app better remove that uncommon password feature so this app can be better for new users so they don’t have to sit down at a GOTDAMN table for 40 minutes trying to put in they’re password like they say you learn from mistakes
Draw got me drawing daily again
by David Linabury on 2018/10/21 14:02
I went to art school (CCS) and planned to be a professional Illustrator. I got into Adobe Illustrator on version ‘88 and Photoshop on v1.0. Long story short, I ended up in UXD and drawing became a hobby, then something I couldn’t find time for. This app changed that (for me). After a few hours of playing with Draw, I found a renewed interest in illustration. I really like the immediacy of the app; in combination with the Apple Pencil it’s the ideal pairing. It’s even changed my drawing style and how I approach color layers. As of this review, I have posted a new illustration every day for 212 days. Thank you for AID!
Almost there
by Hsisolbsghjjb on 2020/11/04 03:39
The eraser leaves marks 🙄 really thought I was getting the hang of this, it’s hard without a stylus but possible. The eraser thing really breaks it for me. (Edit) the eraser is leaving marks only on certain projects for some reason, I didn’t screw with the settings. And there is a harsh line when you fill things in with color sometimes and not other times which I hate. But other than that this is actually really fun to use, you can zoom in really far, you can use the shapes the same as a ruler in real life, as straight edges or curve or whatever shape you are using it’s pretty cool. I’d still say that it’s nearly there for me. 4/5.
Beware Subscription Based Apps
by Ellionazul on 2019/10/20 22:32
Been there, done that. Owned the whole suite of Adobe CC and earlier products before they decided on these subscription based apps which leave much to be desired. They not only offer you bits and pieces of which could have been a better product but also want to charge you a monthly fee to use and not own there app. I can understand that move was taken as to prevent counterfeit copies from being made and sold illegally but that also does a disservice to those that truly used Adobe products responsibly. Now they offer these watered down, stripped apps in different versions Spark, LR, Photoshop Express, etc. which are limited in what they do and to be quite honest does not do them well. There are better out there for instance Procreate, Affinity Photo, Affinity Designer, SketchClub and even Painter.
Almost perfect
by Ray King Ellis on 2018/11/29 06:30
As far as my needs, this is a near perfect app. I have a laser that I use vector drawings to engrave on wood/misc material, so when an idea pops into my head it’s convenient to be able to pull out my iPad and pencil and draw it out. Palm rejection is pretty good, but on occasion it’ll pick up my hand, not a huge deal. Even with my new iPad Pro 2018 model the app slows down when using the eraser for too long in one line without picking it up. The only thing it’s really missing is a better transform function, but not a big deal to save the image and edit it later on my desktop. Overall it’s my go to for ease of use and simplicity!
Not perfect, but close
by Mistacoosa on 2020/09/17 13:10
Once you get past the adjustment of giving assignments in Adobe Illustrator (I cannot currently because we are distance-learning here in Prince George’s County, Maryland) this little program is pretty dope. If the developers could come up with a way to incorporate the pen tool, even if it didn’t do curves like it’s big brother, it would really go a long way. If you could also select individual objects and resize them on a single layer, boy would THAT be fantastic… But, I understand it may not be possible in this Mobile environment. Pretty awesome work, Adobe Draw team!
Limited Layer Cap, overall Great app
by Ixion The Ghost on 2017/09/07 14:59
This app for me is fantastic but I find that I'm almost -always- finding myself limited by the limitation of how many layers I can use or when merging layers where one layer is on multiply and the one merging down to is normal for example, the multiply layer effect is INSTANTLY lost and the merged layer just looks like the layer with the normal look. There's also the lack of better control when wanting to rotate a layer, no ability to link layers to move/rotate all at once just in case orientation of applied effects needs to be adjusted. There are times I'm trying to rotate a layer and end up resizing it. -_-; Overall I enjoy the app and it is my go to for random doodles. Just needs better control, no limit on the number of layers we can create, the ability to select, copy and paste custom selections in a later, more brushes O_O NEED MORE BRUSHES! So for that I had to dock a star. Still super happy with the app though. Keep up the good work guys and gals! Hope to see more advancement for the app in the future.
Terrific app but two wishes
by Cjb1384 on 2019/06/15 13:12
After starting a project I wish there was a way to select multiple images such as photos, documents, etc that would automatically be placed on separate pages in the project. I often have 20+ photos that I need for a single project but all as separate documents. Adding one Image at a time is very time consuming. In addition, I love the way I can add a geometric figure but I wish there were more of them (other irregular quadrilaterals, parallelograms, trapezoids, pentagons, etc.) to choose from. But it is still a wonderful app. Thank you
Folders to organize projects please!!
by Lahnabonny on 2020/04/13 20:02
This app is great! I just wish it had the ability to organize projects into different folders. I use this app a lot for work and personal projects, so it would be great to organize multiple sheets into folders rather than scrolling through tens of hundreds of project pages on the main screen. Also an eye dropper tool for colors! I can’t tell you how many times I’ve picked a color for a brush, forgotten to save it to my library, switch brushes, then turns out I need the same color again later. These few upgrades and it would be nearly flawless!
Not adding layers properly, and switching selected layers
by noob siborg on 2019/08/31 21:51
Hello I’m a user of your app, now don’t get me wrong it’s an outstanding app, I do have only a couple of problems, first off, occasionally when I select a layer to draw on, then I go to check the layers only to find out that it’s switched to the wrong layer by itself, the second one is that when I add a layer it doesn’t for on top of each other, it’ll be in the middle, and it’s very hard to get certain this created, so if you could fix those minor issues that would be tremendously helpful.
I can’t believe this is an Adobe product
by Du_Voir on 2018/05/22 04:06
The one thing I love about this app is that it is vector based. It seems to be the only true vector based app. Other than that it greatly lacks the customization and functionality compared to other apps on the market. The touch controls are horrible, when I try to rotate the canvas I end up painting strokes. There should be a feature where touches are for gestures and the pencil makes the strokes and inking. The variety or pen and brushes and how much you can customize them is greatly lacking. Please go take a few pointers from P.C and C.S on gesture controls and customization. This app shows know power even remotely close to illustrator. The iPad Pro can handle a more robust app. Let’s get on it Adobe.

Description
We're replacing adobe draw with two new apps that will provide you with the tools, features, and functions you need to create. Take a look at Adobe Fresco and adobe illustrator for iPad to see which app will work best for you: Adobe Fresco is a free drawing and painting app with the same vector brushes you love and use in adobe draw. Your Draw projects will automatically transfer to Fresco the first time you sign in so you can start right where you left off with beautiful vector, pixel and Live brushes, and more advanced tools like selections, unlimited layers, masking, shapes, and livestreaming. Adobe Fresco is free, but you can choose to pay for more storage, more brushes, and Photoshop on iPad access. adobe illustrator, the vector-based software used my millions, has been reimagined for the iPad. Create logos, icons, illustrations, and graphics with a design toolkit that includes type, gradients, shape-building, and precise vector editing tools. There is no additional cost for the app if you're currently using adobe illustrator as a Creative Cloud member. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ MORE STORAGE (Optional in-app purchase) If you need more Creative Cloud file storage, you have the option of purchasing an additional 20GB for $1.99 (US dollars) a month. The recurring payment is automatically charged to your iTunes account. To stop service, simply go to your account Settings and turn off auto-renew at least 24-hours before the end of your billing period. Prorating is unavailable — when you turn off auto-renew, service will continue until the end of that month’s billing period. The Fine Print You must be 13 or older and agree to Adobe’s terms and privacy policy, viewable at: http://www.adobe.com/special/misc/terms.html http://www.adobe.com/privacy/policy-linkfree.html Use of Adobe mobile apps and online services requires registration for a free Adobe ID as part of a free, basic level of Creative Cloud membership. Adobe online services require an Internet connection, are not available in all countries or languages, and may be subject to change or discontinuation without notice. If you enjoy using adobe draw, please leave a review. It really helps!
Try Afinity instead
by SP7615 on 2021/04/15 12:56
This app really only exists to try to get you to buy more Adobe products and then subscribe and pay fees every month. Go with Affinity’s suite of products. Much more useful and affordable, and they are reminiscent of when Adobe products used to be manageable.

Le best drawing app ever created. Period.
by @ewport on 2021/04/13 11:25
As an artist I have been looking for the best app for drawing digitally ever since I got my iPad mini back in like 2012. This app has everything and more. You can layer different blank transparent or image layers on top of each other which is great for tracing sketches/drawings/paintings/etc.. made in real life. You can trace pictures taken irl, found online; draw your own artwork and layer it over a picture. You can create like portfolios (albums) of your artwork made on the app, save your artwork to your camera roll, upload your artwork to socials & my personal favorite is you can pick up where you left off on your drawing each time you reopen your art on the app. Create customized colors, customizable brushes, zoom in or out as close/far as you would like and the best part is you can use this app to draw on an iPhone and its free! The quality is better then you’d expect!! Perfect app for an artist to be used on any device<3 worth the download! ~ @ewport and diorfather on tumblr

Good but bugs
by MzBrowneye on 2021/04/08 15:52
The bug is when I draw in the background it does it in a another frame or erase
I love this game but
by I LObE DISSs OmG on 2021/04/07 17:39
There’s a few glitches that I honestly annoying like when I tried to draw in the background it immediately goes to the normal layer and also it’s a collectors very often but anything besides that this app is amazing
copy layer from 1 project 2 another
by ~~~Michael Wood~~~ on 2021/04/05 02:31
is that its like an extension of mind. it really allows one to just. do a drawing. i love the brushes. simple. forces u to learn the device n pressure points. i love the rgb and color wheel. i dislike the needing of syncing my projects to cloud. i want to airdrop and pic up on my mac. i also want to see the standard .ai file implementation & this extended to the files app. i would love a better shape library and a way to more easily make smaller shapes. a new gesture perhaps? i also think its time to detatch from the pc. i think we should have mirrored export options 4 these mobile devices. it rly should b iphone > ipad > done. when i fire up my pc platform with a drawing display im looking for something very different as when im using my mac i have an entirely diff flow as when im using my touch laptop. your main areas of focus should b illustrator ipad illustrator traditional illustrator mobile i would keep the ui/ux the same for mobile OR like you did here i might even suggest u reinvent and totally ditch this now legacy ui. the fact is tho. many of my ideas start here. start w the best & u can get the best. this draw program on ipad with a pencil was good. as well as the countless hundreds of projects ive emptied into my phones. its literally on my first page & row of apps. praise dont get higher than that. adobe is best at this. their suite is simply. a creators joyous playground.
Amazing !!!
by shedraws on 2021/04/01 16:40
update: - can you add double tap undo (major priority) and add in Pantone color palettes/ability to import palettes - never get rid of Adobe Draw I got a really good iPad this year - the iPad Pro and just did some amazing work today - just . messing . around App needs obvious further features - like a color wheel etc Still ... I might have to toss my trad dip pen/calligraphy pen 😂
Love this app
by Peepgamehoot on 2021/04/01 12:05
It’s so addictive, convenient, and super easy to use to expand amongst your imagination. I love this app and I hope it never leaves. I’m always drawing on this.
yikes
by a mad and annoyed kid. on 2021/03/26 23:13
ADOBE IS BACK AT IT AGAIN! Woo! I love it when it doesn't work how I want it to. Zooming in and out, drawing, and erasing lags so bad. It’s not my device or my apple pencil for I’ve tried other drawing apps to use and they work normally. Not even my own fingers work. The limited tools that you are given make it worse. Of course, you could adjust in each of the tools’ settings but who would want to do that?
Trouble
by Bivca on 2021/03/25 01:22
I can’t even rate the app, cause I downloaded it and about to Sign In with my Apple ID and that stress cause each time I clicked on, it cannot open to me while I have a good internet connection
Adobe Draw is AMAZING!

Still having trouble
by Qwerty Tin on 2021/03/08 18:43
I’m still having trouble with the erasing when I erase it won’t do it and 10 minutes later it erases but over all good game
Don’t buy this app.
by chaoticeye on 2021/03/06 00:16
You’re limited to a certain amount of tools without the Purchased version. Upon trying to use the layer options you have to hold the pencil on the layer. Actually super ridiculous. When you try to use toolsCompatible with layer options that aren’t on the screen and are hidden with an arrow. If you scroll to the right it immediately scrolls you back to the start. You can’t even open the layer menu without holding the layer down. Also impossible to just delete a layer. Trash app. Waste of my money. Should’ve listen to the internet and got procreate it also starts your color on white with a white background. It’s a joke if you don’t know that you don’t think it’s working
It’s okay
by AnonymousGameCritic on 2021/03/01 13:31
I got this a little while ago and it was working fine, the only thing that I didn’t like about it was that there was no easy way to blend. Today I tried to add a picture and it just wouldn’t do it. I don’t know if it’s my iPad or the app’s fault. It’s a little bit glitchy (the lines end before I lift up my stylus) but if you just want something to mess around with, this is fine.
It’s not the best
by love hjn on 2021/02/27 16:51
I have definitely had better experience I like white board a lot more check it out
Good

Minor problems
by th esimsuena on 2021/02/19 00:46
Hi, I have used this app at the previous school that I used to go to and it was great, this was before I had an Apple Pencil. I love to use my Apple Pencil to draw all sorts of cool things but with this app I found it really hard to have smooth lines because of pressure issues, the slightest change in grip of movement would set it off. I looked in the apps settings and nothing was there. It ticked me off because I love to trace images but this just was not working. If you have a regular stylist it still works though. I also wish that it could have a way to blend colors together. And a million other things.
Lost EVERYTHING
by mgms_15 on 2021/02/13 19:45
After 2 years using the app I could not get it to send to my desktop app. I decided to log off and back on. It deleted EVERYTHING. over 200 sketches lost
Amazing app but

Love the app but I’d like to see somethings added
by 天龍かえん斎藤 on 2021/01/27 01:52
I absolutely love this app I haven’t had any problems with it but there are some things that need to be added like lines of symmetry and perspective lines like in other apps but there’s don’t else I’d like to see put in this app that I think would set it apart from most if not all other drawing apps and that would be adding a 3D posable figure male and female with adjustable proportions for drawing people, anime, etc it would be a lovely feature I’d like to see added and would be very useful for drawing cartoons, people, anime and personally I would get a lot of use out of it
Pretty Good but needs more adjustments

love it but PLEASE I NEED TO BLEND
by blendless person 💔 on 2021/01/18 07:31
i absolutely love this app but my main complaint for not giving 5 stars is that it doesn’t have a blending brush or any blending toooool at all please add one or more brushes soon please i’m begging!!!!!!
Good tool to use

Goodbye yellow brick road
by Uncompaghre on 2021/01/12 06:01
I love this app! But....it’s sad to hear that Adobe will no longer update this simple, beautiful, intuitive app and they plan to replace it with Fresco which has a terrible user interface comparison to this sweet, sweet app.
Pretty good

Must create an account to use
by Drew Lutes on 2020/12/27 21:01
I’m so tired of having to create ANOTHER account to use apps. JUST SELL THE APP FOR THE PRICE YOU NEED. I need to doodle in vectors, I don't need to store my garbage drawings in a cloud service, none of it is that important. So I guess I won’t be using this app.
starts to lag and freeze every 5-10 seconds you are using it
by Emmanuel7/11 on 2020/12/27 19:36
it starts off great when using it but over time it starts freezing every 5 to 10 seconds and it makes it very difficult to do anything.
Amazing
by Crazy Monkey22776644 on 2020/12/23 22:04

by Olivia Terra on 2020/12/18 10:22

So far this is the best vector art tool I’ve ever use. Really it’s easy to use.
Glitchy and difficult to use
by too grunge on 2020/12/09 23:38
I’ve had this app for three years. It’s great for making large vector drawings, but the usability of this program is really lacking and it always has been. I thought it would get better over time, but it honestly hasn’t and it’s kind of a bummer. Rotating layers could not be more difficult, creating and erasing lines is unnecessarily hard, and exporting is a joke. There’s no streamline in the actions inside the app and it’s overall difficult to use, even as an experienced digital artist. Again, good for making large scale illustrations or vectors, but pretty much terrible in every other way. Mega let-down.
Would be great if it worked properly
by Megan2313 on 2020/12/09 16:52
Never able to send files to my computer on the first go. Last time I had to log out of cloud and log in again. Now having it happen again. Would be great if I didn’t have to troubleshoot every time i try to use it!!!

Way to glitchy
by mringman on 2020/12/05 19:52
I’m just trying to draw and it doesn’t even recognize that my finger or Apple Pencil is on the screen. Then it takes a bit and draw a giant blob in the middle of the screen. Any other recommendations for drawing apps. I’ve tried all the ones by Adobe and they all do not work.
Love this app

App keeps crashing.
by lilpoplil on 2020/12/02 19:29
Wont load my files and keeps crashing. I used to love this app.
I love it but there’s two problems
by okjgfdgij on 2020/12/01 21:17
So the first one is there’s no help button in the settings. How am I supposed to let you know that there’s a bug that needs fixing or I need basic information about the app. The second one is there is a problem with uploading photos to a project. I was going to find the help menu and figure out what to do from there but apparently you don’t have one so I’ll let you know from here. It’s worked great up until now. I cannot upload any photo from my phone onto the app to work on a project, the only way I can get a picture is to either take one, which isn’t possible for what I need to do, or upload it to an app as a file. And I just tried the latter and let me tell you it wasn’t great. The quality of the photo dropped tremendously and it’s all pixilated. And it would’ve been so much easier to upload it from my phone. I’m pretty sure it’s either a bug with the app or it’s just a me problem. But you need to fix the first problem. You need to have a help menu and have some frequently asked question and answers. And probably a place where people can ask you those questions. It’s a great app apart from these two issues.
- It's alright
by Frank Blunt on 2020/11/24 20:53
I can’t get images to import like they are supposed to, so I have to copy and paste as a work around, which is annoying. The space to draw is crowded by the brush selections. I wish they could be tucked away like the layers panel. It’s EXTREMELY basic, but cool for sketching on the go
Used to love- now I can’t use it
by starenby on 2020/11/22 22:09
Doesn’t let me upload images anymore. I’m so upset. Used to loved using it to create digital art of animals that was perfectly accurate with placement of markings and now I can’t even add an image layer to a single project.

I’ve had this app for like 2 years and I stopped using it for a while but when I came back on the app like after a year I couldn’t up load pictures from my camera to the canvas to start sketching. I even RE downloaded it and turned my phone off but it just keeps lagging. Before I wasn’t having this problem everything ran smoothly but I don’t know now.

Pretty Good
by Preeeeecious on 2020/11/08 21:45
I’ve been using this app for a few days now and I really like it. The reason I gave it 4 stars is because some of it is a bit confusing. When I try to add an image to the workspace from my phone gallery it doesn’t work. Also it would be a bit more helpful if you added a help desk to the app, so people can ask questions. Overall, it’s pretty good.
Great app

Love this app BUT
by Goldie Acorn on 2020/11/07 02:38
This app is perfect for designing quilting plans on photographs of quilts. For some reason I can no longer create an image layer with a photo on my iPD though.😢
Almost there
by Hsisolbsghjjb on 2020/11/04 03:39
The eraser leaves marks 🙄 really thought I was getting the hang of this, it’s hard without a stylus but possible. The eraser thing really breaks it for me. (Edit) the eraser is leaving marks only on certain projects for some reason, I didn’t screw with the settings. And there is a harsh line when you fill things in with color sometimes and not other times which I hate. But other than that this is actually really fun to use, you can zoom in really far, you can use the shapes the same as a ruler in real life, as straight edges or curve or whatever shape you are using it’s pretty cool. I’d still say that it’s nearly there for me. 4/5.
Crashing and app freezing.
by MCFALSE20202 on 2020/11/03 20:53
Whenever I open the app it won’t let me select anything and has a buffering ring always in the middle left corner of the screen, I can’t fix this issue so I always have to uninstall and reinstall the app. Devs, please fix this issue as fast as possible.

This is right off the bat THE BEST APP EVER! Because it is sooooo easy to use. I am not a pro however I do enjoy drawing and painting. I was very happy to find out that this app is FREE! NO hidden fees! I highly recommend this app. Little note/tip: I recommend you use a stylus or finger whatever works for you but I chose a stylus because I always wear coffin nails. TO the creators: THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU FOR MAKING THIS APP!!!!!!!!! NEVER CHANGE IT PLEASE!!!!!

No Pen Tool

The pen tool is literally their logo but it’s not even included in the app. Impossible to edit your line work like in the original illustrator. Absolute waste.

My Default
by Live Life for God on 2020/10/14 14:38
Update: Well, this has been pretty much my default app for drawing small pictures. As long as the PPI is high and the drawing area is small, I don’t lose as much picture quality. I utilize the fill feature a ton but wish there was a way to fade/shade. In addition, it would be nice to share/merge a project with another. Currently, I have to copy to clipboard then I can use it in another project. This doesn’t allow editing to the “image” that was imported as it considers it an image and not part of the project.

by Iam Lono on 2020/10/05 18:07
I love the creation part of using this app but the only option to save to the $**** AdobeCloud?! Seriously??? I want to keep my files on my iPad!!! Fix this now! Users want access to files directly and don’t trust that cruddy little cloud. No, I don’t want to send it to my desktop to save. I want access all the time with the original file ON MY IPAD.
Wonderful
by Malati Meek Sona on 2019/04/13 02:04
Like foreal. I love this app. I use it for graphic design along with YouDoodle. Had some freezing and some glitches but still totally worth it. They are quick to fix bugs and issues especially if you report them. So updates are a must. I find the whole calligraphy effect amazing when using a tapered brush. I go from digital paintings to graphics to presentations slides and even clothing design. I use it a lot for clothing design sketches a lot also- reason being -you can add layers for days. So I can draw layered patterns and whole outfits. I will draw my seam lines on one layer and then lace etc. there is one thing that will turn this into a miracle app. Please Adobe add a blender tool! If I could utilize this to do more realistic shading rather than layers of lower opaque colors I could use this app for even more things. Also if I could record while I’m drawing. That would also be amazing. Otherwise get this app! My little brother is 13 and doing graphics! It’s an easy learn. !
Mighty for the small projects
by Ave_Fish on 2018/08/04 17:23
As far as the quality and ease of use, this app takes the cake. I’ve struggled to get into digital art because the apps are usually so unfriendly to users, but simplicity and easy to follow tutorials really helped with this app. There’s not a lot of tool options, but they’re all the tool types that I really need. Plus the fact it easily converts to a timelapse is a awesome plus. However, I am sad to say I’m currently looking for a different app as I quickly outgrew my use for this one. If all you plan to do is sketch something quick, this is the app for you. But any real project worth time and effort causes awful lag. I have my iPad Pro up to date, as well as the app, but my larger projects just can’t be supported by the functions of the app. Sometimes it’s a few second delay for a single line to show, opening and closing layers takes ten seconds to load, the fact that if you forget to “convert to timelapse” every few minutes then it will never load, or the zooming/rotating taking another ten seconds to load. It’s bad enough I don’t want anything more to do with this app anymore. Additionally, I’ve learned to work around the lack of a smudge or blur tool, but there are lots of times it would really be perfect for the looks I’m trying to create.
Starts off great, becomes completely unusable over time
by SpikeMitchell on 2019/03/27 16:47
I’ve been using this app for about a week now, and I have to say, after growing accustomed to the layout and gestures, I’d really been enjoying it. I made some stuff I was really happy with, and if all had stayed as it was, this would be a 5 star review. However, a few days ago, the app gradually started to have issues, in that it began freezing up every 10 seconds or so, for about 3 seconds every time. To be clear, I have a new iPhone 8 and a new iPad both of which are having this issue. It does it even when you’re doing absolutely nothing in the app, or when you’re drawing, or resizing or pulling up a menu. It just happens inconsistently, and for seemingly no reason. I’ve looked it up online, emailed adobe, and even gone as far as deleting all but 6 simple pieces of my art and bought extra memory for a small price each month. Nothing has improved the problem, I haven’t had a response yet from adobe, and it makes it nearly impossible to complete anything unless you’re content with the program stopping you half way through your pen strokes to have a think every so often. Extremely frustrated and disappointed.
copy layer from 1 project 2 another
by ~~~Michael Wood~~~ on 2021/04/05 02:31
is that its like an extension of mind. it really allows one to just. do a drawing. i love the brushes. simple. forces u to learn the device n pressure points. i love the rgb and color wheel. i dislike the needing of syncing my projects to cloud. i want to airdrop and pic up on my mac. i also want to see the standard .ai file implementation & this extended to the files app. i would love a better shape library and a way to more easily make smaller shapes. a new gesture perhaps? i also think its time to detatch from the pc. i think we should have mirrored export options 4 these mobile devices. it rly should b iphone > ipad > done. when i fire up my pc platform with a drawing display im looking for something very different as when im using my mac i have an entirely diff flow as when im using my touch laptop. your main areas of focus should b illustrator ipad illustrator traditional illustrator mobile i would keep the ui/ux the same for mobile OR like you did here i might even suggest u reinvent and totally ditch this now legacy ui. the fact is tho. many of my ideas start here. start w the best & u can get the best. this draw program on ipad with a pencil was good. as well as the countless hundreds of projects ive emptied into my phones. its literally on my first page & row of apps. praise dont get higher than that. adobe is best at this. their suite is simply. a creators joyous playground.
Wanted to love it...
by progresscity on 2020/10/03 15:21
I wanted to love this app because I love the Adobe Creative Suite, but there are just way too many issues when trying to run on my brand new iPad Pro. I can't believe this has a 4.7. The gesture to undo is two fingers swiped to the left... Okay, that's a little weird, since every other app I use is either two fingers tapped or three fingers swiped to the left, but okay. But in order to move around the canvas, you also use two fingers. So good luck trying to move around, you'll be undoing like crazy. And since there's no way to turn off drawing with fingers (so that only the Pencil is recognized), there have been a LOT of times where I tried to move left and it undid something, so I tried to redo it but instead the app decided I was trying to draw... so now I can't redo what I never wanted to undo in the first place, and have to manually redo work. This is such a ridiculous oversight it makes me wonder if the app was ever tested. On top of all that, it's also super laggy on my brand new iPad Pro, so I'm not sure what that's about. I spend a lot of time drawing a stroke and then sitting back and waiting for my work to decide to show on the screen... I expected so much more from an Adobe app.
Great!... Until you try to get fancy...
by Los chulos. on 2018/11/13 09:20
I’ve been using this program for over a year now, and for how simple it is, it’s honestly not only surprising but also highly impressive with how much one can do with so little, and i would fully recommend this for beginners trying to get into digital art. However I do have some complaints, despite me regularly deleting old works and, according to the app, having lots of data space left, should you try to get too detailed or complicated with your art, to program starts to act very slowly to the point of crashing (it does save automatically and for that I’m VERY grateful for, don’t get me wrong) but it would still be nice if the program could handle everything to a stronger extent. Also it would be very cool if they added a text feature, they even have pre-made speech bubbles, but no text features to put in them...Other than these things I have not complaints, and I would totally recommend this to a friend.
Has many issues.
by Carrilynnnn on 2020/04/04 05:22
In the beginning, it used to be good and quite easy to draw. It’s various markers and features enabled to draw easily. However, quite recently, it started to freeze quite often. Even if I zoom a little, it would freeze for approximately a minute and a half, and then just as it stopped freezing, it would freeze again. This made it impossible to draw and quite agitating as well. On a drawing which would usually take an hour to complete, I took two hours, because of the glitches and freezing, and as I went to erase the mistakes, it froze again, and erased almost half the drawing. And another issue was that if I left the app, even to reply to a message or simply because I wanted to do something else, it would immediately exit the drawing and I would not be able to undo anything, or make any changes to the previous version of the drawing. I used to love this app, but now I’m starting to loathe it and will learn how to use a different app, if these issues are not fixed. Do not waste your time on this app, because it is just a dead end.
Crazy Awesome Integration, Fun to Use
by ash8658 on 2019/09/06 20:57
I recently got a 9.7 in iPad to use for design and illustration. I initially thought I would primarily use Procreate for design, however while looking up Illustrator, I came across this adobe app. I am amazed by the seamless designs, the personalization, the easy integration and transfer capabilities from this app, to Adobe Capture, to sending the design vectors straight to illustrator on my computer within seconds! This is a High quality app that any designer should integrate into their design process. One recommendation: what I like about Procreate over this app is the variety of brush sets, the fine alterations you can make on brushes, and overall design capabilities. If Adobe Draw can get closer to ProCreate on that level, there would be absolutely no need for me to use ProCreate at all. Other option: work with ProCreate to easily transfer designs as vectors into Adobe applications.
Adobe, get rid of the ruler
by rich_blondes on 2018/03/30 23:41
It is so annoying to have to maneuver the ruler around , which is not easy and you get marks in parts that you didn’t plan. It is very simple and Sketch Club, and Autodesk both have the option of making straight lines . It is annoying because you are connected to Adobe capture shapes, but the ruler is just stupid, messy and there is a very simple cure that every other drawing app has. But your connected to my Creative Cloud library, and I use SketchClub to render architecture straight lines. Then have to go to this app for my capture shapes library. I hate that you cant just decide straight lines, for once please listen, and if the ruler is needed for something else, keep it but every time I try your mobile apps their is always something, better and it’s annoying that you can’t get the basics down, please check out your mobile apps competition. Capture is probably the only app that is original and innovative. This ruler is a very idiotic, feature that never wants to move. OPTION DRAW STRAIGHT LINES OR FREEHAND
Adobe Draw
by lsume82 on 2018/07/03 16:27
I understand that there is currently no cad app for iPad pro. As a mechanical engineer, I’ve spent many years making my own drawings since it’s faster than trying to explain what I want to a cad operator. I taught graphical communications and descriptive geometry at one university and taught algebra at a different university and am now retired. Having held titles such as chief engineer and engineering and maintenance manager I’ve hired and taught a fair number of engineering students and practicing engineers through my career. I retired as an executive at a medium to large defense contracting company but I still enjoy doing calculations and wish there was a basic cad app for my iPad pro. I have the A9X chip and plenty of memory. A simple app that allows the user to draw lines and input the angle of the line would be great. This app does not seem to offer the basic ability to draw lines at an input angle. Just being able to solve a sum of vectors would be great. Perhaps I’m missing something that this app offers. Anyone who is very familiar with this app might prove me wrong in my assumptions which I would be thankful for. Thx
Amazing App with small hiccups.
by TheMusicFriend on 2020/05/10 15:04
I’m a beginner to vector tablet drawing, but quickly learned with this great interface. Props to adobe for making such a sleek and user friendly app for artists and noobs alike. I rated the app only 4 stars because of one pesky glitch that seems to keep cropping up. Occasionally when I’m zoomed in on a segment of my canvas, and am erasing with the eraser tool, the app will become slow or lag or freeze up or just not register my erasing gestures. Backing out to the main page doesn’t fix it either. The only thing that fixes the issue is selecting one or two different tools and either/or drawing and zooming out before returning to erase. It’s a small complaint for an otherwise brilliant app. I hope adobe keeps supporting this free app as it really is a fun and impressive tool.
So crisp and smooth!
by DexySleeze on 2019/08/08 17:41
For what i need this app is amazing. Like others, i wish there was a blending/smudging/blur tool. But with enough time and key stroke placement it does the job well enough. I wish we could add brushes though! Also, can we maybe be given the option to customize the layout more!? I’ve messed up so many layers because they’re right on the right hand side...where i accidentally switch to another layer without noticing and mess things up. I like being to able to quickly switch between brushes and colors but i have to make the controls all disappear to avoid that happening and it’s crazy annoying! It pains me to give 4 stars....because really it’s an amazing amazing tool to have. But it is also such a drag to use! I know i have to use this because of the superb quality so I just accept my fate...but my pieces take a lot longer to finish and frankly I lose all motivation when battling an app that is counterintuitive.
You don’t tell me what I can use cause of my age
by chicken nuggets rule the world on 2019/04/09 04:02
Look you can’t tell me I can’t use this app or create a account because I’m not at the right age look people I’m trying to practice drawing to get better and I don’t always have a piece of paper to pull out and draw on and I’m trying to get into art to make it as my career so can you respect that and tell me oh you can make a account because of community guide lines oh well I’m going to make one if I want to so let me make a account because it’s just dumb you can’t let a person a child that knows the right and wrongs so can you please fix that because it’s just rude to tell people what they can and can’t do please make it to where all people can use the app please I want to have fun by drawing and learning new things and you are just stopping me from doing what I want to do so please allow all ages to make a account thank you taking time to read this is you did please fix this.
Yes... but no.
by Izi✌🏻 on 2017/12/17 06:09
YES, this app can help you create amazing things, IF you can figure out how to work the freaking thing. Congratulations and my applause to whoever can work the controls, but in my case, it seems absolutely impossible. I have created pieces that I am quite proud of, but after spending hours on end working on a piece it would always end up being all for nothing due to a lack of one single detail, weather that be the sizing or accidentally pressing something that seems irreversible because my non-artistic and non-technologicaly capable brain can’t figure out how to control and complete my artwork. The list goes on, and I’m sorry to whoever has faces the same frustrating and tragic ending as I have; which is why I have finally come to the conclusion to delete this stupid app, along with my courage to keep trying. For some it has and will be smooth sailing on the ocean of creativity and excitement of finishing a new masterpiece, BUT for my countless others who I have known and have faced the same sorrowful ending, such as myself, it has been a rough and challenging swim to shore.
Great app!
by anartistontiktok on 2019/09/16 22:10
I’ve downloaded a few other drawing apps before and this one is the best free one! I should invest in a pen to draw with and I’ve only been using my finger on my phone screen but I haven’t let that stop me from making super detailed characters. Thanks for such a great free app! My only complaint is I can only zoom out of the largest sized paper so far and it doesn’t allow me to draw anything too large, I’ve only been able to draw a character full body a couple of times and I couldn’t get as much detail as I would like, but, no major complaints at all since it’s free, I only have it on my phone and I don’t have a stylus lol, so that much is really a personal preference, as well as wanting more texture tools to draw with, but again, it’s free (I think?) so I’m content.
Great App! Just some features it could use...
by Universalzam on 2020/05/05 11:05
I love Adobe Draw, it is awesome. It has taught me lots about drawing, and has all the features I need to improve my photo realistic drawing styles, except for blending tools. I don’t know if it’s just my bad skills, or I just can’t find the right tools, but Adobe Illustrator doesn’t seem to have the tools I need/want to blend my pictures. A paintbrush feature (watercolor and/or dry paint) or a highlighter would probably be sufficient for that. Also, the discover section could use a search button. I would like to be able to search for certain drawings, instead of just having to scroll and hope I find it. That’s all the suggestions I have right now, Thank you Adobe Illustrator Draw!
Cool app!
by hfcfg x x F cccv on 2020/09/10 18:42
Awesome and brings me joy but this is also a tiny warning for kids like me! So before u get this app just be warned u NEED A EMAIL account. For me this was not an issue lol 😂 but I know some kids don’t have a email account so I just wanted to say. But I have a given email account my parents gave me. Also another thing I would like to point out is that I had to lie about my age because I was born 2008 and when I put it in it said I was too young 😭 but another thing to watch out for it askes you for your first name, your last name, and your date of birth!!! This is unacceptable and I put a fake name and a fake date of birth cuz I didn’t want a stupid drawing app to know my personal info! Another thing is it askes you where u live! I think just asking for an email is enough! 😒 ugh anyways this app is the go too when I’m bored
Suggestions for improvement
by laughbee on 2018/05/11 02:06
I enjoy using the app, but it’s still frustrating at times. They need to fix the palm/fingers creating unwanted marks when touching the screen or zooming in or out (i have Draw with Current Brush selected but it still picks up my fingers when I zoom out etc). Def need no limit on layers, also they need to add a gesture where I can select an object by holding the pencil over it, Ps has that select current layer option. If I have 20 identical objects as in a pattern it’s insane looking for the one I want to move. Also, I wish if I selected one color it got attributed to all the brushes, I’m using several brushes drawing one object and have to manually change colors when I pick a different one. Hope the Adobe team tweaks the app more and of course it’d be amazing if they had custom brush support! But then people won’t pay for Ai, right?
4 out of 5 stars for one simple reason
by narashibear on 2018/07/22 02:53
I would be debilitated without this program. I rely on it for many uses ranging from professional to personal. I have given it 4 stars instead of 5 because you are REQUIRED to purchase an Illustrator subscription in order to save your work as anything other than a jpeg, making this program not free after all. For professional use, you likely already have the program and this is just another tool to add to your stock. On the other hand, if I were strictly a personal/pastime user, it would be very disheartening not being able to save in different formats based on my personal use. But all in all I truly do love this program. It is my go-to vector drawing app.
I love it but there’s two problems
by okjgfdgij on 2020/12/01 21:17
So the first one is there’s no help button in the settings. How am I supposed to let you know that there’s a bug that needs fixing or I need basic information about the app. The second one is there is a problem with uploading photos to a project. I was going to find the help menu and figure out what to do from there but apparently you don’t have one so I’ll let you know from here. It’s worked great up until now. I cannot upload any photo from my phone onto the app to work on a project, the only way I can get a picture is to either take one, which isn’t possible for what I need to do, or upload it to an app as a file. And I just tried the latter and let me tell you it wasn’t great. The quality of the photo dropped tremendously and it’s all pixilated. And it would’ve been so much easier to upload it from my phone. I’m pretty sure it’s either a bug with the app or it’s just a me problem. But you need to fix the first problem. You need to have a help menu and have some frequently asked question and answers. And probably a place where people can ask you those questions. It’s a great app apart from these two issues.
Do you know why I like this app 💯 stars if I could
by KatherineEP on 2017/11/23 21:27
I like this app because it’s a great art app and for beginner drawers this is just a question, how do post your pictures on discover other than that this is truely amazing 😉 ESPECIALLY I love watching my drawings with the time lapse button I have this rule that my parents won’t let me go on my iPad for the week but on the weekends so I asked if I can ONLY USE Front row math Epic reading 📖 app and of course last and especially not least THIS APP now these are the reasons I LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOVE this app 😊But here is suggestions can we please cut and paste and can we please copy colors of pictures?if so I would if I could ask the apple company to add 💯 $tars
Delightful vector art application
by Old_Pines on 2018/10/31 14:11
I have adored working in this app from way back when it was called Adobe Ideas. The subsequent updates and revamps have made the app stronger and more versatile. It’s a genuine joy to use. The only thing I’d love to see is more compatibility with active styluses (styli? I guess it’s either). I recently received a SonarPen after backing their indegogo campaign. It works well in MediBang Paint, but there’s no support for it in Draw or Sketch, yet. Looking forward to having pressure sensitive line control without paying $100+ for a stylus I’ll lose, drop, or have battery issue with. (Granted, the 3d Touch on iphone 7 and above functions as pressure sensitivity, but I sometimes need the larger screen area of an ipad.) Other than that, this is a fabulous app. Absolutely recommend it.
Bugs!!!
by Violet E on 2019/12/12 22:51
This app seemed really great and I took the time to explore around a little bit. I finally got excited to dive into art again. I started doodling a little and as soon as I started using the eraser tool the app struggled to load anything. The erasing I did wouldn’t show up and I couldn’t tap anything else. I tried closing and reopening the app and I fiddled around with my WiFi a bit, but I couldn’t get it to work. If this is an issue with an easy fix please let me know! I had searched a while for an app as simple as this (because I’m new to digital art), but could still make a quality drawing. As a side note, my only other complaint is the lack of options for brushes. A small selection makes it easier to pick and choose, but too small of a selection doesn’t leave much room for exploration.
Works ok but...
by WendyB223 on 2019/05/27 01:11
Please, please can you integrate another way to send/save files other than the direct upload to illustrator? Sometimes it works fine, but if it doesn’t, it’s an hours long process of figuring things out, and that’s with the advice on Adobes website. I’ve done everything, checked that the account is the same on desktop and app, made sure everything is the latest version, etc etc. yet still, it’s hit or miss if this works. Latest advice is to sign out of everything, turn off all devices, turn all back on, resign in and give it another shot. This is just an unacceptable workflow when there is no logical reason as to why the transfer is not working. Can you just make it so we can save a file and upload it where we need it? The cloud, iCloud, Dropbox, etc?? This would make many Adobe Draw users lives much easier.
Awesome but Some Concerns
by Gotta Fix The Game on 2017/09/22 19:36
So I love this app because is very easy to use and has many options to it but theres some things that should definitely be added! First off There should be an easier and much better way to shade so maybe a water color utensil should be added which could be much useful! Another concern of mine is that I don't know how to delete or move around my libraries which I need and want to keep organize so unless its just a really hidden feature it should be added! On last thing is that whenever I fill in something with color all the time I see these really thin lines around where I filled it in and that really bugs me and Makes it look like it has a white thin outline and thats not what I want so please help me out here and add feature to fix these problems thanks!
Absolute garbage and completely unusable
by Nick...A... on 2020/03/26 23:23
I would give this app a rating in the negatives if I could. It was unbearably slow and the controls were counter intuitive. The fill bucket tool barely worked, the brushes were always too large regardless of how much I shrank them and had to be completely altered to work acceptably. The layout was inconvenient. If I was trying to draw anything, and was zoomed in, the app had to load so I could move my picture to the next section. I’ve never had this problem with an app. I followed their tutorials but all it did was glitch and lag. I wanted to smack my head against the wall out of frustration because of how unusable it was. Procreate is better by leaps and bounds, but I was trying to find an app to make vectors with. Extremely disappointed. Save yourself the misery and skip this piece of garbage. I can’t wait to delete this awful app.
It’s good
by RyGuyDaMan on 2019/08/20 03:26
For those of you wondering how to get even thickness on those line strokes go in the settings of whatever pen your using and turn off some of those features it has already on. Once you figure this out it’s easy to convert your logos into vector graphics. Also if you want to add a image into this app to work on it create a new layer that’s titled “image layer,” the image most be saved to your device preferably the photos app that’s already on your device. This and Adobe Sketch can be easy replacements for Photoshop and Illustrator, if your in to creating your own graphics, and so far it’s been free. Can’t complain too much. Nice job guys.
Why do I need an account?!
by $$$ Spent on 2018/04/26 02:09
I paid an absolute fortune for this app, many multiples more than I’ve paid for any other app. At first I was able to use it without difficulty. Then technical issues with my device forced me to do a hard reset. Now I can no longer access this app without creating an account that will allow Adobe to invade my privacy, distribute my data and bombard me with SPAM. I cannot even access support without creating this invasive account. If this were a free game I would expect to surrender my privacy; it’s the reason I don’t download free games. For what I paid, Adobe should respect my privacy and leave me alone. Since I’m not going to be allowed to use this app I’m asking iTunes to refund this purchase. Before you buy this know that, in addition to the very expensive purchase price, you are agreeing to be tracked and aggressively targeted for marketing.
Best Drawing App Out There
by Lolliepop101 on 2020/05/02 22:13
I have never experienced a better drawing app, ever! Super easy to use, with swiping for undos and redos and a great but simple layer menu. The only thing is that this is vector system that doesn't have gradients or blending options. It's pretty easy to get around that though with some semi-transparent layers for a cool effect. You can also have unlimited projects and works of art, and you can have a lot (A LOT) of layers. It also has a line smoother feature that doesn't adjust the line drastically like some apps. It's calibrated perfectly. Like I said, best app I've ever uses and it's how i create all my art.
Not bad, but kind of buggy
by AGould05 on 2020/03/19 12:58
This is a pretty good app overall. It's easy to use and understand, even for someone like me, who has no experience with digital art. However, I wish this app had more tools, like more brushes or a blending tool. Also, it freezes a lot when I'm using it, and especially when zooming in while drawing. It sometimes shows a percentage that it's supposedly being zoomed in by, but doesn't actuary zoom. It seems sort of unpredictable, but I'd say it happens about 2/3 of the time when I try to zoom in. It's actually very annoying not to be able to draw precise line art and fine details, and I really hope this gets fixed soon. Other than that, it's a pretty good app, and I'd say it's great for beginners.
Bittersweet.
by tellingpeopletoavoid on 2019/08/11 16:17
I’d love to give this an amazing review because of how convenient it is and how it works with adobe software but if we’re being honest after I’d say about 1 year of using your app it slowed down out of no where. Currently can’t even zoom in or out without it buffering as well as line marks lagging therefore making almost impossible to correctly draw even a basic shape. It was great while it lasted but in comparison to say autodesk draw and the tools they provide with the rate you guys charge for your software it should be a night and day difference imo. Now if you can provide a fix to the lag I’d be all over this app. I’ll note as well I’ve tried troubleshooting best practices.(deleting re downloading, resetting phone etc)
Great!🌸
by Jojo dances🎃 on 2018/05/29 15:05
This app is SOOOO reasonable especially for when I animate. It’s definitely more professional than PixArt😏 When you use Adobe Draw you come up with your own ideas and not anyone else’s. When you use PixArt there is a little button with an exhibit of trees etc. But anyway when you tap it a search bar comes up and you can search up different thing such as eyelashes, eyes, lips and so on. Honestly I think it doesn’t let you be creative like Adobe Draw does when I animate. Oh and if your wondering why I gave it a 4 star it is because of when you have the smallest little space in between two lines and they don’t let you fill but besides that it is an AMAZING app!💙🖌💙
Love new updates but want more
by goodpeoolebenandash on 2017/11/10 21:02
The newest updates are all great and were much needed. The one thing that I REALLY wish existed would be the ability to send the illustrator file to the creative cloud or directly in an email without having to export it to illustrator on a desktop. I need to send illustrator files for my job but do all my work on iPad and it’s very frustrating to be able to do 99% of the process without ever having to touch the laptop and then having to make sure I’m near one just to be able to send someone the Illustrator version of the file. Just let us export to an illustrator file and send via email! Also why is the background not pure white and why can’t the background be changed at all???
It deleted everything.
by A.P.H 🐘 on 2019/11/06 01:41
I have been using adobe draw to draw logos and labels for my company. I designed 10 logos which took probably around 30 hours in total. I open it almost every day to work on them, and today I opened it and everything was gone. I have spent so many hours perfecting everything for my company and now it’s all gone down the drain. I tried backing up my phone and it didn’t work. I tried re-logging in to the app and it didn’t work. I even went as far as to delete the app and re-download it. But nothing worked. I contacted them about my issue and the customer service was horrible. I emailed them about it deleting all of my files and was rudely told that basically I’m wrong and that doesn’t happen and it must have been something I did. I will not be using any adobe apps from now on.
Really great but . . .
by Briaahlove on 2020/09/30 21:41
This app is really awesome for digital sketches, but I have also noticed that it tends to freeze and delay a lot. With some of my projects, it will not do this, but with others it will freeze as I am coloring or zooming out/in. I am not sure if it is the type of project I am doing or if it’s something else, but I don’t believe it is the type of project because I have done projects like this before and it never did this. It could be the latest iPad update that I have. I would love for this to get fixed soon. If it could, this would be a five star rating. I love the app, but I can’t use it for a moment until I figure out the issue.
Possible bug
by Masta_Tubby on 2017/10/12 05:11
I like this app, great stuff, it tends to lag when zooming in/out but that may be just my iPad, but anyway you know the transform feature, how you can move a drawing in a layer, it selects my item, but it selects a bunch of white space. Say you make 2 squares in two different places, then you erase one and transform the other, when transforming the square gets selected but also the area where the square used to be. So I go and erase whatever is in the area, which there is nothing in the area, but when you transform it it still selects blank space, I’m not sure it’s a bug
Pretty Good but needs more adjustments
by poulgngjfj on 2021/01/24 03:51
First of all I would like to say: it’s a great drawing app The problem I see is that there is no blend mode. I always want to make more complicated drawings but I can because I don’t have the time to draw every line so it looks more blended. Next, I’m on an iPad mini 4 and I love the app but it’s just so hard for me to draw things with my fingers and I tried to download Adobe iPad but my iPad wasn’t used enough or something. Lastly, I think us ordinary people should be able to post our drawings to other people. I tried and tried but I couldn’t find how to post pictures to everyone else. Theses are just some ideas that I think Adobe draw desperately needs (sorry this is so long)
Simple, easy to use, but stopped working
by Bibliokitten on 2018/12/04 19:12
I used this program for three days. There aren’t many features, and I hadn’t figured everything out yet (Annoyingly, couldn’t find a way to save files with anything but the default name, which is a real pain. Hopefully possible to do, and I just haven’t figured it out). But it was so easy to use that I ignored that. Unfortunately, it suddenly began to lag horribly. Trying to draw, erase, or zoom might take over 30 seconds to register. This is a brand new iPad Pro, less than a month old, so I don’t think it’s that it can’t handle the program or anything like that. It’s extremely frustrating, but I fear there won’t be much help for it, as I see the same problem reported over a year ago without a solution.
Um no
by Sandbag(*☻-☻*) on 2020/09/02 11:40
You can’t tell me i can’t create an account because I’m not allowed in. Oh you want my social security number and my credit card number how about my IP address if you do some people use this app to practice oh and I’m just an innocent 10 year old who wants to practice well... back to the deleting board ugh apps are so much scams and another thing is when I was in the process putting in my password (enter a password that is not common I had to sit for 40 GOTDAMN minutes to do that and after all that I CANT GET IN if you want to make this app better remove that uncommon password feature so this app can be better for new users so they don’t have to sit down at a GOTDAMN table for 40 minutes trying to put in they’re password like they say you learn from mistakes
Draw got me drawing daily again
by David Linabury on 2018/10/21 14:02
I went to art school (CCS) and planned to be a professional Illustrator. I got into Adobe Illustrator on version ‘88 and Photoshop on v1.0. Long story short, I ended up in UXD and drawing became a hobby, then something I couldn’t find time for. This app changed that (for me). After a few hours of playing with Draw, I found a renewed interest in illustration. I really like the immediacy of the app; in combination with the Apple Pencil it’s the ideal pairing. It’s even changed my drawing style and how I approach color layers. As of this review, I have posted a new illustration every day for 212 days. Thank you for AID!
Almost there
by Hsisolbsghjjb on 2020/11/04 03:39
The eraser leaves marks 🙄 really thought I was getting the hang of this, it’s hard without a stylus but possible. The eraser thing really breaks it for me. (Edit) the eraser is leaving marks only on certain projects for some reason, I didn’t screw with the settings. And there is a harsh line when you fill things in with color sometimes and not other times which I hate. But other than that this is actually really fun to use, you can zoom in really far, you can use the shapes the same as a ruler in real life, as straight edges or curve or whatever shape you are using it’s pretty cool. I’d still say that it’s nearly there for me. 4/5.
Beware Subscription Based Apps
by Ellionazul on 2019/10/20 22:32
Been there, done that. Owned the whole suite of Adobe CC and earlier products before they decided on these subscription based apps which leave much to be desired. They not only offer you bits and pieces of which could have been a better product but also want to charge you a monthly fee to use and not own there app. I can understand that move was taken as to prevent counterfeit copies from being made and sold illegally but that also does a disservice to those that truly used Adobe products responsibly. Now they offer these watered down, stripped apps in different versions Spark, LR, Photoshop Express, etc. which are limited in what they do and to be quite honest does not do them well. There are better out there for instance Procreate, Affinity Photo, Affinity Designer, SketchClub and even Painter.
Almost perfect
by Ray King Ellis on 2018/11/29 06:30
As far as my needs, this is a near perfect app. I have a laser that I use vector drawings to engrave on wood/misc material, so when an idea pops into my head it’s convenient to be able to pull out my iPad and pencil and draw it out. Palm rejection is pretty good, but on occasion it’ll pick up my hand, not a huge deal. Even with my new iPad Pro 2018 model the app slows down when using the eraser for too long in one line without picking it up. The only thing it’s really missing is a better transform function, but not a big deal to save the image and edit it later on my desktop. Overall it’s my go to for ease of use and simplicity!
Not perfect, but close
by Mistacoosa on 2020/09/17 13:10
Once you get past the adjustment of giving assignments in Adobe Illustrator (I cannot currently because we are distance-learning here in Prince George’s County, Maryland) this little program is pretty dope. If the developers could come up with a way to incorporate the pen tool, even if it didn’t do curves like it’s big brother, it would really go a long way. If you could also select individual objects and resize them on a single layer, boy would THAT be fantastic… But, I understand it may not be possible in this Mobile environment. Pretty awesome work, Adobe Draw team!
Limited Layer Cap, overall Great app
by Ixion The Ghost on 2017/09/07 14:59
This app for me is fantastic but I find that I'm almost -always- finding myself limited by the limitation of how many layers I can use or when merging layers where one layer is on multiply and the one merging down to is normal for example, the multiply layer effect is INSTANTLY lost and the merged layer just looks like the layer with the normal look. There's also the lack of better control when wanting to rotate a layer, no ability to link layers to move/rotate all at once just in case orientation of applied effects needs to be adjusted. There are times I'm trying to rotate a layer and end up resizing it. -_-; Overall I enjoy the app and it is my go to for random doodles. Just needs better control, no limit on the number of layers we can create, the ability to select, copy and paste custom selections in a later, more brushes O_O NEED MORE BRUSHES! So for that I had to dock a star. Still super happy with the app though. Keep up the good work guys and gals! Hope to see more advancement for the app in the future.
Terrific app but two wishes
by Cjb1384 on 2019/06/15 13:12
After starting a project I wish there was a way to select multiple images such as photos, documents, etc that would automatically be placed on separate pages in the project. I often have 20+ photos that I need for a single project but all as separate documents. Adding one Image at a time is very time consuming. In addition, I love the way I can add a geometric figure but I wish there were more of them (other irregular quadrilaterals, parallelograms, trapezoids, pentagons, etc.) to choose from. But it is still a wonderful app. Thank you
Folders to organize projects please!!
by Lahnabonny on 2020/04/13 20:02
This app is great! I just wish it had the ability to organize projects into different folders. I use this app a lot for work and personal projects, so it would be great to organize multiple sheets into folders rather than scrolling through tens of hundreds of project pages on the main screen. Also an eye dropper tool for colors! I can’t tell you how many times I’ve picked a color for a brush, forgotten to save it to my library, switch brushes, then turns out I need the same color again later. These few upgrades and it would be nearly flawless!
Not adding layers properly, and switching selected layers
by noob siborg on 2019/08/31 21:51
Hello I’m a user of your app, now don’t get me wrong it’s an outstanding app, I do have only a couple of problems, first off, occasionally when I select a layer to draw on, then I go to check the layers only to find out that it’s switched to the wrong layer by itself, the second one is that when I add a layer it doesn’t for on top of each other, it’ll be in the middle, and it’s very hard to get certain this created, so if you could fix those minor issues that would be tremendously helpful.
I can’t believe this is an Adobe product
by Du_Voir on 2018/05/22 04:06
The one thing I love about this app is that it is vector based. It seems to be the only true vector based app. Other than that it greatly lacks the customization and functionality compared to other apps on the market. The touch controls are horrible, when I try to rotate the canvas I end up painting strokes. There should be a feature where touches are for gestures and the pencil makes the strokes and inking. The variety or pen and brushes and how much you can customize them is greatly lacking. Please go take a few pointers from P.C and C.S on gesture controls and customization. This app shows know power even remotely close to illustrator. The iPad Pro can handle a more robust app. Let’s get on it Adobe.
