Description
If you’re a vector artist, adobe draw is your go-to app for digital drawing. Use customizable brushes to draw, design, and style your art. We’ve included basic shape stencils to speed up your design work— like circles, squares, French curves, polygons, and even speech bubbles for comics. Create on resizable canvases up to a delightfully printable 8k. With one tap, your layered files are sent right to adobe illustrator CC, or as a flat image to Adobe Photoshop CC. Show off your drawing process with an automatically created time-lapse video. Some feature highlights: • Five customizable brushes with unique tapers - infinitely configurable opacity, size and color • Insert basic shape stencils or new vector shapes from Capture CC • Get detailed perfection: zoom 64x for tiny details, with canvas size up to 8k • Mix photos with vector drawing layers - restack, rename, transform and merge them • Send your layered illustration to Photoshop or Illustrator • Optimized for Apple Pencil and iPad Pro • License royalty-free images from Adobe Stock within Draw ----------------------------------------------------------------------- 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.

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.
Still my favorite place to draw.
by Todd Buller on 2019/12/09 19:32
I love this for creating illustrations. Have been using it for ~ two years. Some of my top art has come from this app. Draw has the simple design, is bug-free, and the color picker is perfect. Is lacking only Fresco’s export options.
Why????
by wfhjugcg on 2019/12/09 18:17
I lost all my stuff after the update 😤
Crashing
by _idrewthis_2195_ on 2019/12/09 02:29
Tonight alone while working on a piece it crashed maybe 10/15 times for simple adjustments like resizing or moving. Otherwise love Adobe Draw and it’s vectors.
This is awesome
by fhkbsbsohbojwbdfjbaojdjl on 2019/12/08 03:22
This app can make your drawings excellent and gives you a variety of colors on the color palate.
This app is my entire life!

Sad to see things switching to Fresco...

Not good
by narwhalelover on 2019/12/03 01:36
I had this app, and I used it for about 5 minutes before I decided that I hate it. There are only 4 brushes, and none of them are natural! It is not a good app. The screen is really tiny because of the brushes, and the placement of the lines when you press with your finger sometimes goes right where you don’t want it to. If you want a good drawing app, go to ibspaint, it will be confusing at first, but so much better than this.
Why not simply call it Adobe Draw?
by JohnyGumDrops on 2019/12/01 01:52
Why put this out under the Illustrator label? Where are the anchor points for me to work with? Even if this was a super basic Illustrator program, I’d be happy to have the ability to create shapes on the go, instead of free form drawing. This is too similar to the Photoshop drawing app and not made for primary Illustrator users.
What is wrong with saving to images on iPad?
by Forever Justice on 2019/11/30 09:05
The save to image areas that does not match with the art board’s frame! Saving to image in Portrait setting mode become landscape photos and vice versa. Please fix this problem!
Review
by Nay Nay and my best friends on 2019/11/30 04:26
It’s really fun because you can draw all types of stuff with different materials
Absolutely Love this App!
by Lizzypearl10 on 2019/11/29 19:12
Just as the title says, I really love this app, but I want to make a request on maybe adding an option to flip horizontally or vertically when transforming ALL frames at once? That would be a very nice thing to have so people can flip an image vertically or horizontally to get a better look/perspective of the drawing. Thank you for reading!

Version Differences
by Preluck07 on 2019/11/28 04:22
I have this problem when I open anything on my iPhone and then try and to it on my tablet (android) it says that it cannot not be opened because my phone is on a recent version for the iPhones and my android tablet is on a lower version if you could please provide some input also my iPhone version is 4.8 but my tablet is 3.6.7
Lag is horrible!
by Rachelrav3n on 2019/11/24 16:11
The brushes bleed A LOT and the lag is just plain awful. After reading some of the other low rated reviews, I’m scared my work is going to be deleted out of nowhere now. Come on Adobe! You’re the best that we’ve got (or you’re suppose to be!) Get it together
Great until your work disappears
by kcmnc on 2019/11/21 16:28
I use this app for scientific illustrations quite happily for about 6 months, until my iPad prompted me to log back in bc my “session expired”. When I logged back in, my work was gone. This is a known issue if you google it. I got no help from support. I have an institutional creative cloud account not a personal one, so Draw was not linked. I was never prompted to link them or told in the app that they would need to be synced in order to preserve work that appeared to be stored locally. But here we are.
WHERE IS THE FILL TOOL
by COOKIESM12 on 2019/11/19 12:20
Ok. This is a hate review, and before you scream at me to shut up about this, it’s necessary to address. This WOULD have been a 5 star rating if Adobe freaking ADDED A FILL TOOL. This is a huge issue for me in SO many ways. You see, I’m an animator, and I can’t afford for my work to look crappy, because then my likes on YouTube will go down, then my subs will go down because people will be embarrassed to be subbed to someone with terrible art. You see, my phone has restrictions, which means I won’t be able to get ibis paint x until I’m 12. That’s why I try as hard as possible to find decent/free drawing apps. However, the drawing apps that I always find always either try to force the pro version that you have to GET the pro version to SAVE the drawing. Now, I’ve gotten some of Adobe’s other drawing apps, and this time, I really think they tried. But this is something that I can’t let go. For this app I rate... TWO STARS! “Wait but that’s too harsh” I don’t care. Adobe needs to learn from their mistakes and improve. I really hope that the next time Adobe makes a drawing app, they make it better, for instance, maybe they’ll add A FILL TOOL. Well, I hope that this review was helpful! Bai~
Mostly amazing
by ungsarthur on 2019/11/18 06:19
This app has given me the freedom and flexibility to make great art that I enjoy on the go. I find myself just creating way more pieces than I normally would before this app. My only suggestions to make it perfect would be to add a pen tool to make those perfect curves. The French curves are just way too slow and tedious to get right. Also. The smoothing dynamics should be a toggle built into your art board so that you can quickly switch between really precise and tight lines and then back to the smoothing for larger strokes. Right how it’s way back in the app menu and settings. Still, highly recommend.
Best thing ever!
by mammoth2345 on 2019/11/17 23:08
This is the best! You can draw anything and add details that a pencil can’t. The only thing I wish it had was a paint bucket, so you could color something fast without getting paint everywhere.
A great app

I really love Adobe draw. I use it all the time for art requests and I find filling in the scales of a dragon soothing and enjoyable. The only thing I would add is brushes with faded edges and multicolored fills. Thank you for making this wonderful app!
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.

I’ve been using this app for years, it just works! Can we get some “live brushes” on this app?
Great for iPads, not IPhones.
by Catastrophe Gaming on 2019/10/29 18:03
I’ve been using this app for a year now and it’s fantastic, just needs more brushes and optimization on the iPhone
Love y’all’s stuff

Pretty sure we’re all just waiting for an adobe animation program now.
Vs Fresno
by kchill0412 on 2019/10/24 17:15
I like both and how u integrate the apps into Fresno But the brush choosing feature and separation of options gives me anxiety ... this illustrator draw is easier to navigate x customize brush tools

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.
add more features

Here are some problems...
by Girl On Her iPhone 8 on 2019/10/19 02:59
I love Adobe Draw but here are some problems I have with it. There is no blending tool or many different brushes. I wish Adobe made Sketch and Draw one.
It is very good
by Jose Doodles on 2019/10/18 21:44
I love the app but it needs an option to export directly into Ai (Adobe ilustrartor flies or at least the only issue is that it needs more basic shapes. Like a rounded rectangle for example
Keeps freezing

Deleted all of my artwork
by Sir Winston churchle on 2019/10/16 09:07
A new update came out and forced me to sign out of my account. Once I signed back in it deleted all artwork. Lost tons of special draws that i will never get back. Pretty much destroyed right now.
What I Think
by Mymys thiughts about quizlet on 2019/10/14 16:15
I think that when you first get the app you shouldn’t have to sign in.I deleted the app because of that.It was annoying and I was looking forward to this app.Thank you

Not true vector
by didntlikeit on 2019/10/12 12:41
I like the capabilities of this app. I just hate that it’s built off of adobe illustrator but doesn’t export to AI or PSD WITH LAYERS AND VECTOR ART. Each export flattens the layers and rasterizes the art from the app. You my as well draw on a piece of paper with a crayon and take a picture call it done. All the forum responses seem to have the same issue. This is more like a doodle program and not for professional use. I wouldn’t invest anything time on this app because there is nothing vector based about the final product
Great work!
by Dylan (la) on 2019/10/10 20:54
I like the app very much. I use it very often. This is an extremely useful program for screen printing art. How about a function that can change the entire color of the selected layer. Maybe that would lead to gradient functions. Cheers adobe.
Disappointed that updates are being stopped
by thedisc0panda on 2019/10/09 21:30
This is the app I use for all vector based art and I am throughly disappointed that adobe is stopping updates on the app. I will continue using it until it is taken off the App Store and if Fresco improves, possibly switch over. If not...Procreate at least never did that...
Please
by Vv_World123 on 2019/10/07 02:38
I think it would be great to add a blending tool to blend everything together. I would be so happy!!

by TheLonelyPotato2.0 on 2019/10/06 21:13
Lol I’m 12 but it still won’t let me join, this isn’t DeviantArt I just wanna draw. Also I need a button to hide the brush and layer selection. And maybe add a “Two Finger Tap” undo please.

Since getting an iPad and using this app, I have now successfully made seven illustrations in the last two days. It is up to my productivity so much I cannot emphasize how awesome it truly truly is. If I can get an app 10 stars, it would be for this one.
Vector path pen?
by Leighbert on 2019/10/04 02:55
As a long time Adobe Illustrator user I was expecting to find some of the same tools. No type? No paths? No vector drawing pen? This is more like a paint app than an illustrator(like)app. Seeing the pen tool in the logo made me think there was a pen (as with all the Adobe desktop apps) and not just brushes. Waiting for something like that and none of the mobile apps so far have any of those features. Hoping to see that in Spark post but alas...
Great vector drawing app!
by Crowaron on 2019/10/02 18:38
Works great with importing vector shapes
No pen tool?
by Doopiedoo on 2019/09/29 21:25
I wanna make vector art from photos I have of clients as a quick mark up Before I hop on my pc. Ya know just to get some ideas while I’m on the go. But that’s really hard with no pen tool... I mean there’s literally a pen tool icon on the app icon. Adobe is known for the pen tool...
Love it!

by chimbosaren on 2019/09/27 01:27
Theyre hinting us to switch over to Fresco app with in-app purchases, but this has been a perfect tool for those of us who ONLY work with vector. I do not have an ipad pro so I really hope adobe doesnt F us little people anytime soon
Impressive

I’ve been using this app on my iPad Pro 12.9 in. and it is absolutely amazing! I was very surprised at what this app is capable of and I look forward to utilizing all of the features. I would recommend this app even if you are a beginner...very simple UI with lots of options.
Amazing

Good but..
by saras1021 on 2019/09/25 14:02
Honestly a great app for quick drawings. The fact that it uses vector images is probably the only reason I use it to trace drawings. Please add more features like Procreate
Almost Great

Limited the biggest feature?!
by emily.carlton on 2019/09/23 21:30
This app is a big part of my professional work as an illustrator and I like it a lot... when it works. Which isn’t often. I enjoy this app and what I can do, but can only get my vectors to send to illustrator on desktop about 10% of the time. I’m current on versions and updates, I’ve read all the forums and tried everything. The thing that gets me is that this is one of the few vector programs for iPad, and there’s no way to access the file as a vector unless you send to desktop apps! The one thing I need this app for isN’t accessible! You can’t save files as eps locally, or on Dropbox, or email, or even on the cloud. This limited functionality of the app’s most essential feature (saving an EPS file) is infuriating.
Amazing
by Abodi khalid on 2019/09/22 22:28

Great for logos
by Not the big boi on 2019/09/22 16:32
this app is great for designing logos but i think there are sone things that could be improved upon, such as the customization of shapes, or easier way to create your own shapes or things like that. great app otherwise
Awesome edits!!!★★★★★

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.
A bit slow

Good app, needs improvement
by Usha usha on 2019/09/13 06:04
I’ve been using this app on my Android for a while and got it on my phone and the problems on my Android are not any better on a phone. I enjoy the crispness of the lines, but the fact that I have to zoom in and out every time I want to move the picture can be tiring, especially if you’re working on a small phone screen where making a mistake is really easy. Not a big fan of the double-finger slide to undo or redo an action, especially when trying to move a picture. Really other than that, the app is great.
Great app but can’t email your file as .ai?!
by tessito521 on 2019/09/12 18:38
If you’re using an older illustrator (ie, not CC) it’s impossible to get your file as anything other than a .jpeg.
time lapse speed
by Opal Scamander on 2019/09/09 23:59
what speed is the time lapse set at? also is there a feature where you can see how long you’ve been working on a project? if not please try to include one as it’d be really helpful for me to make an average on the time spent on my drawings <3
Good
by MD parent on 2019/09/09 03:33
This app has write features. One feature I would like to have is select different layers and change their properties.
Great work flow, but I have some problems
by Max Erwin Illustration on 2019/09/08 06:00
Firstly, let me say I really enjoy working in Illustrator Draw. I love the traceable shapes, I think these are invaluable to this program and working cleanly and seamlessly within it. The brush selection and lack of selection tools make it hard to produce real work in it. I am a full time freelance illustrator and if I could upload a set of custom illustrator brushes to this, even just a limited amount, this app would be all I need. I know photoshop is coming to the iPad, but would a full version of illustrator come around at any point as well? I think it would be just a valuable. Thanks for listening to my comments! -Max
Not too good
by knight broncho on 2019/09/07 02:07
I was looking for something I could use to make cg characters and landscape concepts. Not just draw. If I could draw I would use pencil and paper
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.
I CANT PLAY IT TO GLITCHY.ps creators I still think it’s good :)
by fiona cupcake on 2019/09/06 03:23

Need text option!
by smallstems on 2019/09/06 01:25

Needs more tools
by Slacklinelo on 2019/09/02 22:34
Please at least add a pen tool and more brushes. Features on this vs the desktop app are seriously lacking.

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.

What is the point of drawing in vectors if you can’t export as an SVG or Illustrator project?
by David George Art on 2019/08/27 00:15
I pity the fools who pay for this garbage.
Wow
by cruz.helmstetter on 2019/08/25 22:12
This is amazing. Perfect for the minds of young artists. Not only is it basic but it’s so basic it’s does everything
no blend option???
by CaribbeanGirl☀️ on 2019/08/25 21:04
great app except for the fact that there isn’t an option to blend colors. what. am i just supposed to have blocky colors??
Perfect all it needs is lasso select
by Tumulteon on 2019/08/25 01:48
Works exactly as expected, a fantastic drawing app to export sketches back to my desktop. The only thing I wish was different is that there ought to be a free form select tool to move things around on the same layer. Currently you have to make what you want to manipulate into a separate layer and transform the whole layer. A couple of annoying extra steps. Otherwise perfect.
add a blending tool 🤡
by Sophieee.L on 2019/08/24 21:14
it’s a really great drawing app, but the only thing that’s lacking for me is some sort of blending tool
Complaint
by fan of robox on 2019/08/24 10:27
I’ve played this before on an iPad, and want you to get rid of the sign up thing and the log in, I’ll give you 2 stars, so if you want five stars, do that please
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.
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.
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.
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
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.
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.
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.
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.
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
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?
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.
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!
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.
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.
Limited the biggest feature?!
by emily.carlton on 2019/09/23 21:30
This app is a big part of my professional work as an illustrator and I like it a lot... when it works. Which isn’t often. I enjoy this app and what I can do, but can only get my vectors to send to illustrator on desktop about 10% of the time. I’m current on versions and updates, I’ve read all the forums and tried everything. The thing that gets me is that this is one of the few vector programs for iPad, and there’s no way to access the file as a vector unless you send to desktop apps! The one thing I need this app for isN’t accessible! You can’t save files as eps locally, or on Dropbox, or email, or even on the cloud. This limited functionality of the app’s most essential feature (saving an EPS file) is infuriating.
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.
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
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???
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!💙🖌💙
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.
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.
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!
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.
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!
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
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.
Oops
by queenlyemma on 2017/11/13 01:17
I like that you made a rotating canvas but could you at least put in like a “would you like make your canvas be able to rotate” “yes no remind me later” because I get easily irritated because when I’m zooming in and it just rotates and I don’t like that it’s very complicated for me to do cartoons when it’s just rotating like crazy. At first I thought that I accidentally did something on my settings but it’s turns out it’s an update. I just realized on setting you can have a rotating canvas or a night n rotating canvas whoops sorry
There Are No Effects
by MyPersonalResponces on 2019/03/08 08:35
This app is amazing in all kinds of ways with the use of different pens, outlined figures, measuring tool, opacities, layers, and you can even change the kind of paper size you want by clicking the size or customizing it. But, the one problem for me is that there are no tools such as fading effects or paint splatters. I believe they would give OCs (Original characters) a more detailed look if someone, such as myself, likes to make character sheets (a character’s design seen from all angles) and is more into advanced designs. Above all, this app is really useful and fun. I would definitely recommend it! 🥰😍 ✏️💗🖋
Needs some improvements, but overall great!
by Snapple_Cap_Queen on 2019/02/24 09:06
If not for some key problems, I would give this up five stars. This is one of the first app to use when I started doing digital art, and it really helped launch me. The only issue I have, is when I try to do anything recently since I got iOS 12 it is slow and jerky. Like if I try to make a layer in visible it won’t look like that right away. I don’t know if I’m explaining this properly, but it something that makes it really hard to draw. At some point, I stop driving altogether because it’s so hard to use this app with that glitch.
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.
Great, but Undo Makes It Almost Unusable
by Luke Ivie on 2018/02/13 21:51
This is an excellent app in a lot of ways, but drawing shapes could be much more intuitive, also, my main complaint is the difficulty of a simple undo. It should be a 2 finger tap like Procreate does, as using a 2 finger swipe to undo is a pain and it becomes very easy to accidentally resize or move the art board around. It happens almost every time I undo. That reason alone makes this app a terrible experience and honestly infuriating. You can’t even customize gestures. If it weren’t for the convenience of handing it off to desktop and also the fact that it exports in vector format that way, I’d be so over this app.
Very meh
by Anomalogue on 2019/05/31 19:09
This is an incredibly rudimentary drawing app, but Adobe still somehow manages to complicate it. It is vector-based but is as inflexible as raster. It is shot through with super annoying usability gotchas. For instance, it is easy to accidentally exit the drawing and lose all your undos. And this is bad because Draw does not preserve individual shapes. If you don't undo a stroke or fill, it becomes a permanent part of your drawing. Frankly, I think the high ratings this app gets is due to the very low expectations most folks have for iOS creative tools. Adobe needs to decide whether they want to make this toy into a tool or not, but until they do, they shouldn't pretend this is a part of CC.
Great work flow, but I have some problems
by Max Erwin Illustration on 2019/09/08 06:00
Firstly, let me say I really enjoy working in Illustrator Draw. I love the traceable shapes, I think these are invaluable to this program and working cleanly and seamlessly within it. The brush selection and lack of selection tools make it hard to produce real work in it. I am a full time freelance illustrator and if I could upload a set of custom illustrator brushes to this, even just a limited amount, this app would be all I need. I know photoshop is coming to the iPad, but would a full version of illustrator come around at any point as well? I think it would be just a valuable. Thanks for listening to my comments! -Max
This. Is. Awesome. Minor problem, though...
by Earlpearlpup on 2019/07/25 20:00
This is a great drawing app, I would totally recommend it. But there is a little problem, the controls are really confusing and most of the time, a lot of the buttons are useless and don’t do anything. I think that needs to be changed. Also, I think all ages should be able to make an account! Not everyone can pull out paper and pencils and pens all the time and just draw. What about when we’re traveling or something? Little kids are allowed to draw, too. That needs to be changed. Otherwise, great app.👍
Desperately Needs Airdrop
by RobIzumi on 2018/11/07 15:21
I’m sure Adobe’s solution of sending the files to desktop apps is technically impressive, but I’m just need the file on my computer. I keep getting the Sent! Message and it’s not opening on either computer I’m signed in on. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn’t. If I can’t rely on this app to edit on my computer I’m not going to use it for my job. Also I hate the swipe to undo. Every other drawing app seems to have settled on tap to undo. Why do I have to keep track of what side the program thinks is my left? I would also like the ability to have the same color across all tools.
Even Finger Drawing Rocks!
by Musicsavvywoman on 2017/11/25 23:01
Got a creative streak? Or a creative kid? This program allows you to draw with your fingers or with pairable pens (on some versions of iPad). Several stock types of in-program digital pens can be easily adjusted for projects. Scores of available color palates, plus room to save your own new colors and palates! I like this so much, I may buy a pen! If I had the choice to add one feature, it would be to add a naming feature for new colors and palates created by users... Great work Adobe developers! I can’t believe this is free technology!
A Start
by Sophiitopaz on 2019/01/10 06:54
I first downloaded the app when i was around twelve years old, (4 years ago) and it was my first introduction to digital art. Although it doesn’t include advanced tools like those in photoshop/sai/etc, it gave me new and easy concepts such as using layers and opacity. Ever since then I have drawn so much digital art and I use many professional programs today thanks to my new love of it! Please keep improving this app and keep it simplistic at the same time, and thank you for inspiring me adobe!
Great app but this one annoying thing...
by Steezydjay on 2019/01/03 06:36
I love using this app a lot, but one thing that’s been really getting on my nerves a lot lately is the fact that every other time I open the app and go to one of my main projects, all of the tool settings reset itself, and I’ve been having to re-fix the brush settings to the way I had them before, and sometimes I often forget. I thought maybe it was my account, so I made a new one to use and it still does the same thing. If you guys can fix this, it’d take a lot of stress off me!
Amazing but can't save large file sizes
by Blayne Mapp on 2017/11/08 17:27
I absolutely love this app, I use it every single day and it's the only drawing app I have found that is easy to use and so clean. The ONLY downside, is that I cannot save files to a big enough size to print bigger than a post card. I learned recently that if I could go into illustrator on a computer, that I could convert the file sizes, but seeing as though I do all of my work between an iPhone & an iPad, I don't know how to get around this. Please make it easier to save larger file sizes, and this app will be perfect.
I love it but this buggy freezing app doesn't love me back
by DanaBearDavis on 2017/08/16 03:14
It's an amazing, and amazingly simple, app for all for your illustration needs--but the second you start drawing more technical, detailed illustrations and maneuvering layers, watch out. So far one of my best drawings is unusable and irreparable as absolutely nothing I do will stop it from crashing the second I try to open the drawing. I've had issues with lagging on a few other projects(like the one I'm currently doing which is making me incredibly nervous) so I'm desperately hoping the app gets a much needed update soon to fix whatever is happening.
ID
by Ducktails3 on 2019/05/29 12:09
I was really excited to get this app but what I’m upset about with this is that you have to make an ID but every time I put in one it says access denied. I’m wondering why it’s not working but sadly I’m looking for a new app because this ID stuff is not working out for me. I see all this great reviews about the brushes and all but I had to be the first to have an issue to get in the app with is stupid, absolutely unacceptable for someone to have trouble especially trying to put in an ID.
Review
by Mahi-Mahi 6 on 2019/04/18 03:34
You want to draw but you don’t have a paper? Don’t worry, this app is not only PERFECT for drawing, if you make a mistake you can easily erase it. There are so many different types of pens, sizes, colors, shapes, and more! I would highly recommend this app to anyone who has a passion for drawing. Plus, you can save your creations to photos and print them too. There are so many possibilities it’s endless fun! I use this app so much and love it even more every time. I hope you enjoy this app too!
It’s cool. Wish there were more brushes and a text function.
by clocktower91 on 2017/12/04 05:20
It’s cool. Works great, makes a great start or sketch stage to my design process. I wish there were a little more to it though... like, if there was a text function or “add text layer” with a good font library that you could maybe add too, that would be cool. Or if you could copy a full editable layer from one project to another. Or even a brush library that was bigger or that you could add too from your own vector brushes in illustrator. All in all the program works great with no issues or bugs.

Description
If you’re a vector artist, adobe draw is your go-to app for digital drawing. Use customizable brushes to draw, design, and style your art. We’ve included basic shape stencils to speed up your design work— like circles, squares, French curves, polygons, and even speech bubbles for comics. Create on resizable canvases up to a delightfully printable 8k. With one tap, your layered files are sent right to adobe illustrator CC, or as a flat image to Adobe Photoshop CC. Show off your drawing process with an automatically created time-lapse video. Some feature highlights: • Five customizable brushes with unique tapers - infinitely configurable opacity, size and color • Insert basic shape stencils or new vector shapes from Capture CC • Get detailed perfection: zoom 64x for tiny details, with canvas size up to 8k • Mix photos with vector drawing layers - restack, rename, transform and merge them • Send your layered illustration to Photoshop or Illustrator • Optimized for Apple Pencil and iPad Pro • License royalty-free images from Adobe Stock within Draw ----------------------------------------------------------------------- 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.

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.
Still my favorite place to draw.
by Todd Buller on 2019/12/09 19:32
I love this for creating illustrations. Have been using it for ~ two years. Some of my top art has come from this app. Draw has the simple design, is bug-free, and the color picker is perfect. Is lacking only Fresco’s export options.
Why????

Crashing
by _idrewthis_2195_ on 2019/12/09 02:29
Tonight alone while working on a piece it crashed maybe 10/15 times for simple adjustments like resizing or moving. Otherwise love Adobe Draw and it’s vectors.
This is awesome

This app can make your drawings excellent and gives you a variety of colors on the color palate.

Not good
by narwhalelover on 2019/12/03 01:36
I had this app, and I used it for about 5 minutes before I decided that I hate it. There are only 4 brushes, and none of them are natural! It is not a good app. The screen is really tiny because of the brushes, and the placement of the lines when you press with your finger sometimes goes right where you don’t want it to. If you want a good drawing app, go to ibspaint, it will be confusing at first, but so much better than this.
Why not simply call it Adobe Draw?
by JohnyGumDrops on 2019/12/01 01:52
Why put this out under the Illustrator label? Where are the anchor points for me to work with? Even if this was a super basic Illustrator program, I’d be happy to have the ability to create shapes on the go, instead of free form drawing. This is too similar to the Photoshop drawing app and not made for primary Illustrator users.
What is wrong with saving to images on iPad?
by Forever Justice on 2019/11/30 09:05
The save to image areas that does not match with the art board’s frame! Saving to image in Portrait setting mode become landscape photos and vice versa. Please fix this problem!

by Lizzypearl10 on 2019/11/29 19:12
Just as the title says, I really love this app, but I want to make a request on maybe adding an option to flip horizontally or vertically when transforming ALL frames at once? That would be a very nice thing to have so people can flip an image vertically or horizontally to get a better look/perspective of the drawing. Thank you for reading!

I have this problem when I open anything on my iPhone and then try and to it on my tablet (android) it says that it cannot not be opened because my phone is on a recent version for the iPhones and my android tablet is on a lower version if you could please provide some input also my iPhone version is 4.8 but my tablet is 3.6.7
Lag is horrible!
by Rachelrav3n on 2019/11/24 16:11
The brushes bleed A LOT and the lag is just plain awful. After reading some of the other low rated reviews, I’m scared my work is going to be deleted out of nowhere now. Come on Adobe! You’re the best that we’ve got (or you’re suppose to be!) Get it together
Great until your work disappears
by kcmnc on 2019/11/21 16:28
I use this app for scientific illustrations quite happily for about 6 months, until my iPad prompted me to log back in bc my “session expired”. When I logged back in, my work was gone. This is a known issue if you google it. I got no help from support. I have an institutional creative cloud account not a personal one, so Draw was not linked. I was never prompted to link them or told in the app that they would need to be synced in order to preserve work that appeared to be stored locally. But here we are.
WHERE IS THE FILL TOOL
by COOKIESM12 on 2019/11/19 12:20
Ok. This is a hate review, and before you scream at me to shut up about this, it’s necessary to address. This WOULD have been a 5 star rating if Adobe freaking ADDED A FILL TOOL. This is a huge issue for me in SO many ways. You see, I’m an animator, and I can’t afford for my work to look crappy, because then my likes on YouTube will go down, then my subs will go down because people will be embarrassed to be subbed to someone with terrible art. You see, my phone has restrictions, which means I won’t be able to get ibis paint x until I’m 12. That’s why I try as hard as possible to find decent/free drawing apps. However, the drawing apps that I always find always either try to force the pro version that you have to GET the pro version to SAVE the drawing. Now, I’ve gotten some of Adobe’s other drawing apps, and this time, I really think they tried. But this is something that I can’t let go. For this app I rate... TWO STARS! “Wait but that’s too harsh” I don’t care. Adobe needs to learn from their mistakes and improve. I really hope that the next time Adobe makes a drawing app, they make it better, for instance, maybe they’ll add A FILL TOOL. Well, I hope that this review was helpful! Bai~
Mostly amazing
by ungsarthur on 2019/11/18 06:19
This app has given me the freedom and flexibility to make great art that I enjoy on the go. I find myself just creating way more pieces than I normally would before this app. My only suggestions to make it perfect would be to add a pen tool to make those perfect curves. The French curves are just way too slow and tedious to get right. Also. The smoothing dynamics should be a toggle built into your art board so that you can quickly switch between really precise and tight lines and then back to the smoothing for larger strokes. Right how it’s way back in the app menu and settings. Still, highly recommend.
Best thing ever!
by mammoth2345 on 2019/11/17 23:08
This is the best! You can draw anything and add details that a pencil can’t. The only thing I wish it had was a paint bucket, so you could color something fast without getting paint everywhere.

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.

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.

Not true vector
by didntlikeit on 2019/10/12 12:41
I like the capabilities of this app. I just hate that it’s built off of adobe illustrator but doesn’t export to AI or PSD WITH LAYERS AND VECTOR ART. Each export flattens the layers and rasterizes the art from the app. You my as well draw on a piece of paper with a crayon and take a picture call it done. All the forum responses seem to have the same issue. This is more like a doodle program and not for professional use. I wouldn’t invest anything time on this app because there is nothing vector based about the final product
Great work!
by Dylan (la) on 2019/10/10 20:54
I like the app very much. I use it very often. This is an extremely useful program for screen printing art. How about a function that can change the entire color of the selected layer. Maybe that would lead to gradient functions. Cheers adobe.
Disappointed that updates are being stopped
by thedisc0panda on 2019/10/09 21:30
This is the app I use for all vector based art and I am throughly disappointed that adobe is stopping updates on the app. I will continue using it until it is taken off the App Store and if Fresco improves, possibly switch over. If not...Procreate at least never did that...

Vector path pen?
by Leighbert on 2019/10/04 02:55
As a long time Adobe Illustrator user I was expecting to find some of the same tools. No type? No paths? No vector drawing pen? This is more like a paint app than an illustrator(like)app. Seeing the pen tool in the logo made me think there was a pen (as with all the Adobe desktop apps) and not just brushes. Waiting for something like that and none of the mobile apps so far have any of those features. Hoping to see that in Spark post but alas...

I wanna make vector art from photos I have of clients as a quick mark up Before I hop on my pc. Ya know just to get some ideas while I’m on the go. But that’s really hard with no pen tool... I mean there’s literally a pen tool icon on the app icon. Adobe is known for the pen tool...

Theyre hinting us to switch over to Fresco app with in-app purchases, but this has been a perfect tool for those of us who ONLY work with vector. I do not have an ipad pro so I really hope adobe doesnt F us little people anytime soon
Impressive
by Doodle5 on 2019/09/26 23:55
I’ve been using this app on my iPad Pro 12.9 in. and it is absolutely amazing! I was very surprised at what this app is capable of and I look forward to utilizing all of the features. I would recommend this app even if you are a beginner...very simple UI with lots of options.
Amazing

Amazing app!
Good but..
by saras1021 on 2019/09/25 14:02
Honestly a great app for quick drawings. The fact that it uses vector images is probably the only reason I use it to trace drawings. Please add more features like Procreate
Almost Great
by H.R. Pixel on 2019/09/25 03:35
Wish you could make images higher than 4096p for 5K and 8K resolution content.

by pigeonpgh on 2019/09/24 21:57
I absolutely love this app...once you dial in the brushes it’s awesome. I wished it saved your brush settings.

Limited the biggest feature?!
by emily.carlton on 2019/09/23 21:30
This app is a big part of my professional work as an illustrator and I like it a lot... when it works. Which isn’t often. I enjoy this app and what I can do, but can only get my vectors to send to illustrator on desktop about 10% of the time. I’m current on versions and updates, I’ve read all the forums and tried everything. The thing that gets me is that this is one of the few vector programs for iPad, and there’s no way to access the file as a vector unless you send to desktop apps! The one thing I need this app for isN’t accessible! You can’t save files as eps locally, or on Dropbox, or email, or even on the cloud. This limited functionality of the app’s most essential feature (saving an EPS file) is infuriating.
Amazing
by Abodi khalid on 2019/09/22 22:28
Great app very useful
Great for logos
by Not the big boi on 2019/09/22 16:32
this app is great for designing logos but i think there are sone things that could be improved upon, such as the customization of shapes, or easier way to create your own shapes or things like that. great app otherwise
Awesome edits!!!★★★★★

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.
A bit slow
by chichi the human on 2019/09/15 14:36
It’s a bit slow I don’t know how to get the layer off when I’m drawing otherwise it’s pretty great!!!

Good app, needs improvement
by Usha usha on 2019/09/13 06:04
I’ve been using this app on my Android for a while and got it on my phone and the problems on my Android are not any better on a phone. I enjoy the crispness of the lines, but the fact that I have to zoom in and out every time I want to move the picture can be tiring, especially if you’re working on a small phone screen where making a mistake is really easy. Not a big fan of the double-finger slide to undo or redo an action, especially when trying to move a picture. Really other than that, the app is great.
Great app but can’t email your file as .ai?!
by tessito521 on 2019/09/12 18:38
If you’re using an older illustrator (ie, not CC) it’s impossible to get your file as anything other than a .jpeg.
time lapse speed
by Opal Scamander on 2019/09/09 23:59
what speed is the time lapse set at? also is there a feature where you can see how long you’ve been working on a project? if not please try to include one as it’d be really helpful for me to make an average on the time spent on my drawings <3
Good
by MD parent on 2019/09/09 03:33
This app has write features. One feature I would like to have is select different layers and change their properties.
Great work flow, but I have some problems
by Max Erwin Illustration on 2019/09/08 06:00
Firstly, let me say I really enjoy working in Illustrator Draw. I love the traceable shapes, I think these are invaluable to this program and working cleanly and seamlessly within it. The brush selection and lack of selection tools make it hard to produce real work in it. I am a full time freelance illustrator and if I could upload a set of custom illustrator brushes to this, even just a limited amount, this app would be all I need. I know photoshop is coming to the iPad, but would a full version of illustrator come around at any point as well? I think it would be just a valuable. Thanks for listening to my comments! -Max
Not too good
by knight broncho on 2019/09/07 02:07
I was looking for something I could use to make cg characters and landscape concepts. Not just draw. If I could draw I would use pencil and paper
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.
I CANT PLAY IT TO GLITCHY.ps creators I still think it’s good :)
by fiona cupcake on 2019/09/06 03:23
WEN I PRESS IT IT WILL FREEZE AND THEN ONES I GET IN TO THE APP I CAN ZOOM IN OR OUT DUMB IT SAYS ITS BETTER BUT ITS NOT I DIDNT HAVE A PROBLEM BEFOR A FEW DAYS LATER BUT THIS IS JUST ANOYING .ps creators good job it’s just I think my iPad can’t load it XD sorry for complaining:)
Need text option!
by smallstems on 2019/09/06 01:25
Love this app, except for the fact that I can’t add text to my projects. Otherwise, I need to use other programs.
Needs more tools
by Slacklinelo on 2019/09/02 22:34
Please at least add a pen tool and more brushes. Features on this vs the desktop app are seriously lacking.

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.

What is the point of drawing in vectors if you can’t export as an SVG or Illustrator project?

no blend option???
by CaribbeanGirl☀️ on 2019/08/25 21:04
great app except for the fact that there isn’t an option to blend colors. what. am i just supposed to have blocky colors??
Perfect all it needs is lasso select
by Tumulteon on 2019/08/25 01:48
Works exactly as expected, a fantastic drawing app to export sketches back to my desktop. The only thing I wish was different is that there ought to be a free form select tool to move things around on the same layer. Currently you have to make what you want to manipulate into a separate layer and transform the whole layer. A couple of annoying extra steps. Otherwise perfect.
add a blending tool 🤡
by Sophieee.L on 2019/08/24 21:14
it’s a really great drawing app, but the only thing that’s lacking for me is some sort of blending tool
Complaint
by fan of robox on 2019/08/24 10:27
I’ve played this before on an iPad, and want you to get rid of the sign up thing and the log in, I’ll give you 2 stars, so if you want five stars, do that please
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.

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.
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
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.
Great app!

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.
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.
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
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?
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.
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!
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.
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.
Limited the biggest feature?!
by emily.carlton on 2019/09/23 21:30
This app is a big part of my professional work as an illustrator and I like it a lot... when it works. Which isn’t often. I enjoy this app and what I can do, but can only get my vectors to send to illustrator on desktop about 10% of the time. I’m current on versions and updates, I’ve read all the forums and tried everything. The thing that gets me is that this is one of the few vector programs for iPad, and there’s no way to access the file as a vector unless you send to desktop apps! The one thing I need this app for isN’t accessible! You can’t save files as eps locally, or on Dropbox, or email, or even on the cloud. This limited functionality of the app’s most essential feature (saving an EPS file) is infuriating.
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.

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
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???
Bittersweet.

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!💙🖌💙
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.
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.
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!
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.
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!
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
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.
Oops
by queenlyemma on 2017/11/13 01:17
I like that you made a rotating canvas but could you at least put in like a “would you like make your canvas be able to rotate” “yes no remind me later” because I get easily irritated because when I’m zooming in and it just rotates and I don’t like that it’s very complicated for me to do cartoons when it’s just rotating like crazy. At first I thought that I accidentally did something on my settings but it’s turns out it’s an update. I just realized on setting you can have a rotating canvas or a night n rotating canvas whoops sorry
There Are No Effects
by MyPersonalResponces on 2019/03/08 08:35
This app is amazing in all kinds of ways with the use of different pens, outlined figures, measuring tool, opacities, layers, and you can even change the kind of paper size you want by clicking the size or customizing it. But, the one problem for me is that there are no tools such as fading effects or paint splatters. I believe they would give OCs (Original characters) a more detailed look if someone, such as myself, likes to make character sheets (a character’s design seen from all angles) and is more into advanced designs. Above all, this app is really useful and fun. I would definitely recommend it! 🥰😍 ✏️💗🖋
Needs some improvements, but overall great!
by Snapple_Cap_Queen on 2019/02/24 09:06
If not for some key problems, I would give this up five stars. This is one of the first app to use when I started doing digital art, and it really helped launch me. The only issue I have, is when I try to do anything recently since I got iOS 12 it is slow and jerky. Like if I try to make a layer in visible it won’t look like that right away. I don’t know if I’m explaining this properly, but it something that makes it really hard to draw. At some point, I stop driving altogether because it’s so hard to use this app with that glitch.
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.
Great, but Undo Makes It Almost Unusable
by Luke Ivie on 2018/02/13 21:51
This is an excellent app in a lot of ways, but drawing shapes could be much more intuitive, also, my main complaint is the difficulty of a simple undo. It should be a 2 finger tap like Procreate does, as using a 2 finger swipe to undo is a pain and it becomes very easy to accidentally resize or move the art board around. It happens almost every time I undo. That reason alone makes this app a terrible experience and honestly infuriating. You can’t even customize gestures. If it weren’t for the convenience of handing it off to desktop and also the fact that it exports in vector format that way, I’d be so over this app.
Very meh
by Anomalogue on 2019/05/31 19:09
This is an incredibly rudimentary drawing app, but Adobe still somehow manages to complicate it. It is vector-based but is as inflexible as raster. It is shot through with super annoying usability gotchas. For instance, it is easy to accidentally exit the drawing and lose all your undos. And this is bad because Draw does not preserve individual shapes. If you don't undo a stroke or fill, it becomes a permanent part of your drawing. Frankly, I think the high ratings this app gets is due to the very low expectations most folks have for iOS creative tools. Adobe needs to decide whether they want to make this toy into a tool or not, but until they do, they shouldn't pretend this is a part of CC.
Great work flow, but I have some problems
by Max Erwin Illustration on 2019/09/08 06:00
Firstly, let me say I really enjoy working in Illustrator Draw. I love the traceable shapes, I think these are invaluable to this program and working cleanly and seamlessly within it. The brush selection and lack of selection tools make it hard to produce real work in it. I am a full time freelance illustrator and if I could upload a set of custom illustrator brushes to this, even just a limited amount, this app would be all I need. I know photoshop is coming to the iPad, but would a full version of illustrator come around at any point as well? I think it would be just a valuable. Thanks for listening to my comments! -Max
This. Is. Awesome. Minor problem, though...
by Earlpearlpup on 2019/07/25 20:00
This is a great drawing app, I would totally recommend it. But there is a little problem, the controls are really confusing and most of the time, a lot of the buttons are useless and don’t do anything. I think that needs to be changed. Also, I think all ages should be able to make an account! Not everyone can pull out paper and pencils and pens all the time and just draw. What about when we’re traveling or something? Little kids are allowed to draw, too. That needs to be changed. Otherwise, great app.👍
Desperately Needs Airdrop
by RobIzumi on 2018/11/07 15:21
I’m sure Adobe’s solution of sending the files to desktop apps is technically impressive, but I’m just need the file on my computer. I keep getting the Sent! Message and it’s not opening on either computer I’m signed in on. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn’t. If I can’t rely on this app to edit on my computer I’m not going to use it for my job. Also I hate the swipe to undo. Every other drawing app seems to have settled on tap to undo. Why do I have to keep track of what side the program thinks is my left? I would also like the ability to have the same color across all tools.
Even Finger Drawing Rocks!
by Musicsavvywoman on 2017/11/25 23:01
Got a creative streak? Or a creative kid? This program allows you to draw with your fingers or with pairable pens (on some versions of iPad). Several stock types of in-program digital pens can be easily adjusted for projects. Scores of available color palates, plus room to save your own new colors and palates! I like this so much, I may buy a pen! If I had the choice to add one feature, it would be to add a naming feature for new colors and palates created by users... Great work Adobe developers! I can’t believe this is free technology!
A Start
by Sophiitopaz on 2019/01/10 06:54
I first downloaded the app when i was around twelve years old, (4 years ago) and it was my first introduction to digital art. Although it doesn’t include advanced tools like those in photoshop/sai/etc, it gave me new and easy concepts such as using layers and opacity. Ever since then I have drawn so much digital art and I use many professional programs today thanks to my new love of it! Please keep improving this app and keep it simplistic at the same time, and thank you for inspiring me adobe!
Great app but this one annoying thing...
by Steezydjay on 2019/01/03 06:36
I love using this app a lot, but one thing that’s been really getting on my nerves a lot lately is the fact that every other time I open the app and go to one of my main projects, all of the tool settings reset itself, and I’ve been having to re-fix the brush settings to the way I had them before, and sometimes I often forget. I thought maybe it was my account, so I made a new one to use and it still does the same thing. If you guys can fix this, it’d take a lot of stress off me!
Amazing but can't save large file sizes
by Blayne Mapp on 2017/11/08 17:27
I absolutely love this app, I use it every single day and it's the only drawing app I have found that is easy to use and so clean. The ONLY downside, is that I cannot save files to a big enough size to print bigger than a post card. I learned recently that if I could go into illustrator on a computer, that I could convert the file sizes, but seeing as though I do all of my work between an iPhone & an iPad, I don't know how to get around this. Please make it easier to save larger file sizes, and this app will be perfect.
I love it but this buggy freezing app doesn't love me back
by DanaBearDavis on 2017/08/16 03:14
It's an amazing, and amazingly simple, app for all for your illustration needs--but the second you start drawing more technical, detailed illustrations and maneuvering layers, watch out. So far one of my best drawings is unusable and irreparable as absolutely nothing I do will stop it from crashing the second I try to open the drawing. I've had issues with lagging on a few other projects(like the one I'm currently doing which is making me incredibly nervous) so I'm desperately hoping the app gets a much needed update soon to fix whatever is happening.
ID
by Ducktails3 on 2019/05/29 12:09
I was really excited to get this app but what I’m upset about with this is that you have to make an ID but every time I put in one it says access denied. I’m wondering why it’s not working but sadly I’m looking for a new app because this ID stuff is not working out for me. I see all this great reviews about the brushes and all but I had to be the first to have an issue to get in the app with is stupid, absolutely unacceptable for someone to have trouble especially trying to put in an ID.
Review
by Mahi-Mahi 6 on 2019/04/18 03:34
You want to draw but you don’t have a paper? Don’t worry, this app is not only PERFECT for drawing, if you make a mistake you can easily erase it. There are so many different types of pens, sizes, colors, shapes, and more! I would highly recommend this app to anyone who has a passion for drawing. Plus, you can save your creations to photos and print them too. There are so many possibilities it’s endless fun! I use this app so much and love it even more every time. I hope you enjoy this app too!
It’s cool. Wish there were more brushes and a text function.
by clocktower91 on 2017/12/04 05:20
It’s cool. Works great, makes a great start or sketch stage to my design process. I wish there were a little more to it though... like, if there was a text function or “add text layer” with a good font library that you could maybe add too, that would be cool. Or if you could copy a full editable layer from one project to another. Or even a brush library that was bigger or that you could add too from your own vector brushes in illustrator. All in all the program works great with no issues or bugs.
