Reviews From google play store

No ads, no in app purchases, no log in required. Most of this app seems good. The smear tool is pretty clumsy when you try to do something zoomed in. The worst thing is the auto save. Most of the time it works. then sometimes it will block out chunks of your work with white. So far manually saving doesn't have this problem*. Also it freezes a lot now, I've waited maybe 30 seconds before closing it out. So save often! Seems to freeze less after a phone restart *Layers can break manual saving too

Amazed at how good this is a lot of apps like this are not free but this is amazing best drawing has a lot of selections for drawing and my drawing on this is way better than any drawings i have ever done and i have never seen any app not just art apps any app better than this amazeing app love it so much there is no flaws at all so huge thanks to the creators and i hope you guys keep making good stuff and i dont even think you can update with all the stuff in this so just thanks...

Great app!!! The only thing is that you cant turn the canavas... this may seem small but honestly for me it is really uncomfortable to turn my phone every 2 seconds... Overall its great!

Okay, I love this app except for the constant freezing, and having to redo unsaved stuff, that would be all my review would say if it wasn't for what happened a minute ago. It froze, I restarted it as usual, all 7 layers were there, sometimes they are in the wrong order, but this time, they were all empty. There was nothing there, at all. And I had saved it a moment earlier. All my layers were empty, I love this app, but now I hate it. I was working really hard on that drawing, and then it dissapeared. Fix this, and I might reinstall it, but for now, I'm looking for a replacement app.

On my Nokia mobile the app freezes and then crashes once I do a stroke. However, on my Samsung mobile it does not. According to the comments I am not the only person who has the problem that the app crashes, but maybe it's only on the non-Samsung devices. To the app, it is very nice, theres a good choice of brushes, but not too many. It'd be nice to zoom in more than 1000% in on the canvas, to draw more detailed (and on a small phone screen without a pen) ;)

I would give it 5 stars if it doesn't freeze all the time in my Samsung Galaxy Note 10. I just can't draw anything without freezing. I'm so sad for this.

Out of all the drawing apps I've tried this is the one I always come back to. My only issue is I have the app on multiple devices but cannot transfer my work between them. I would like to be able to start drawing on one device and continue working on it with another

Still learning what it can do. Aside of that pretty good, quite easy to get the hang of though. I also like that you can share your art on social media.

Lots of freezing. I didn't understand what was happening at first, but it's basically impossible to sketch quickly because it just stops responding.

Loved this on my note 5 but barely used it with my note 8 due to freezing. Literally I would draw for a minute then back out to home screen just so the app would keep saving my progress. I know a friend's note 9 had the same issues.. but I've recently got the note 10.. soooo maybe I'll get lucky and it will work as it did years ago. Still my favorite drawing app, just curious if the dev's are done with it? Stated as of last update in Feb that another fix was coming in weeks.. almost Sept. now.

I wouldn't recommend this app, but that's just my preference, As an artist myself, it just doesn't really seem "good enough" I was trying to find alternatives for ibis paint X because I can't download it for some reason.

I have tried them all, this art app is intuitive and pretty darned awesome! Still playing with it, but heck, DOWNLOAD THIS APP! it is way worth it!! Nice work, devs!! Ps I AM an artist!

Great app, but like most people have said before, it freezes. Galaxy Note 8.

Good App , I have a request it possible you add a Move tool . eg after i have drawn a line i would wish to move it or even resize it again. Also Group and ungroup and bring to front or send it back

best app hands down. everything I've been looking for. EVERYTHING. no issues and didnt cost . like all the other apps. got tired of installing and uninstalling cause the app was a disappointment. thank you for such a useful fun app.

Good app in general, but I have only 1 problem: i am a heavy user of transparency lock (aka: alpha lock) which means any transparent pixels cannot be drawn on. this app lacks a form of transparency lock, when I see a transparency lock I'll give the app 5 stars

I love this app. But, there doesn't appear to be a blending option. I primarly use it for my graphic novel I'm working on because program is very straight forward.blending is a big part of my work. Is there a way that can be fixed?

It worked for a while before it just exited it out as soon as I opened it. Please try to fix the problem I have.

I couldn't get it to draw anything. Very bad tutorial.

I would not recommend thus app at all they only have 3 brushes and it freezes alot i can't even draw a straight line with this! Horrible

Almost perfect. This is such a cool app for anyone who loves art, from the doodler to the professional artist. There's plenty of tools here & the interface is simple enough to learn in a few minutes. In my opinion, the app would b completely perfect if a blending stick was added with the pencils. Please consider adding this as blending is a huge part of sketching. Thank you. Thank you.

This app was working perfectly well up until recently where it crashes each time I try to save, change the opacity of a layer or completely at random while coloring/drawing. I hope this is fixed soon because I honestly really enjoyed using this app up until these many crashes started happening frequently (every few minutes). Edit: I tried reinstalling it and I still have Same problem. It stops working whenever I click anything beside the canvas now, or stops working anyway a few minutes later.

I hated it has no lobby for your art it keeps saying it has stopped working or has shut down all I want is a app that I can draw with and won't shut it self down!!!! >:[

Within 2-3 minutes of drawing it froze and it wasn't responding. As I tapped "wait" it completely stopped and returned to my home screen. After it was still frozen whilst before that i had restarted my device. I don't know if this was just my device but if it is I'm very sorry for the negative response.

After drawing for a bit the whole picture drops in resolution for no reason (lines and blends become aliased). This is permanent and can't be undone when it happens, it can also happen more than once to a single drawing resulting in a very degraded final product. The opacity tool's broken, doesn't change opacity relative to where the slider is and on low settings will even change the brush colour). Still crashes for no reason sometimes. This never use to happen, i'm ready to give up on this app.

This was so bad it literally kept freezing and lagging their was no proper tools to create anything

if play store allowed half stars, I'd give 4 1/2 but since they don't... only just downloaded and played around for a bit. UI seems alright, but wish there were an easier, clearer way to manipulate the image, such as resizing, shifting, etc., without needing to "copy" and "paste" to another layer. otherwise seems like a pretty nice art app!

I'm using this app on my Picasso tablet and it keeps stopping and it crashes a lot.. i don't know why.. but it works fine on my phone just not this.

Please consider incorporating some customizable gesture shortcuts, like two or three finger swipes to get to quick commands like undo/redo and long press to sample color and so on. The floating tool pod is good, but one still has to perform multiple taps to get to a command and then more taps to minimize the pod to view the work. Thanks

every time i try to use it. It shuts down when i tap it

it's very nice. but need to add High-resulation option to save image in High-resulation mode. and need a rular scale with radical measurement option

Essentially a cheap ArtRage, great if you either haven't the money to buy ArtRage or don't want to spend the money.

Unresponsive then crashes. Seems to have great potential if it would work for more than 30 seconds.

Can't erase part of an image, and layers aren't visible as to what they are in the list of layers...

Just saying but this app is a bit hard to paint with, maybe in future updates you can add more tools. But this app is still good

u font like how randomly it has black lines also u have to tap the color u want a couple times and when u start drawing it has the same color as the background and it DISE NOT EVEN LOOK LIKE THE PICTURES!

the app is great but the reason I gave it 2 stars was because it keeps freezing and then I have to shut down the app. if you can fix this then the app would be perfect.

Does not allow cut & paste (only copy & paste). Rectangle and freeform are the only selection options (no preset shapes and cant make hexagons). Has many painting tools and layers, but tends to delete layers, ruining your project.

it horrible every time I try to draw it doesn't draw and then whenever I try to draw on a picture just comes out blurry -o- other people might like it but I just don't

this is a pretty nice app when it works properly there could be more features and tools to use one thing that does need to be fixed is it often freezes up in the middle of drawing or when you switch colors and brushes

Bugs in the program. Sent feedback, but no reply.

The app claims that it doesn't have the permissions it needs to work, yet the only one it asks for in settings, access to storage, is allowed. It's a good app otherwise.

Just got it for my Amazon Kindle. So far, there is very little lag and the options feel much more natural than autodesk sketchpad. Very intuitive and easy to use.

to be honest I think this art program needs to improve, such as adding more brushes, and letting you turn the view on the canvas.

Awesome app! And it's free for real. No ads, no forced social logins, no in-app purchases, no trial period. Thanks Samsung.

meh... the app was really lacking, especially for a tablet or chromebook. The ui is dated, and contrary to my expectations has no real semblance of material design whatsoever. it might've worked on a non HiDPI screen in 2012, but not today.

it would be a great app if it dont crash every 2 mins when you are drawing

Cannot draw a fixed straight line. What kind of architecture is that

i liked it but when i color it leaves lots of dots everywhere other than that i lov e this app

keeps freezing and not responding. works great when it's not frozen. please fix this!

it's the best from all that I've used. I'll also recommend that this is the most advanced and adorable till now for me.

It was really cool and so good and the brush is great and this was rhe cooolest app i've ever seen

❌ When I start drawing, the App constantly stop functioning, I have to wait for 1/2 or 1 minute to continue, that is so annoying.

Trace options really very nice.please add angle rules to draw like sketch book (autodesk) over all I really like it. Moving tool box I like it

Whenever I started drawing it felt like I was in a whole new world and I got a sudden thought that I was super good at drawing. =)

Not very good at all I really dont like the brush it's not realistic at all however maby good for children

Very very nice and customizable app. But please provide a software mouse simulator for devices which don't support stylus.

pretty simple and unrefined if you need to advance faster it's better to use Autodesk "sketchbook"

Cant use it on my Note 8. It means its already more than a year and the problem still doesnt fixed

It was hard to draw and when I first started the game it crashed. Might wanna fix that.

stupid app keeps freezing after 20 Seconds of using it

At first glance, this would seem to be a very complete set of mobile tools. Looking forward to exploring this app.

... best Paint Pad app for Android I have seen ... very intuitive ... good tools ... No ads ... doesn't seem to interfere with other apps

well i love it but please add a blender cause its really important for artist 😓

i keeped teing to but an image on but it keep saying (the app has stoped working) didnt even have it for 10 min. it sucks

This app is very laggy and i'm not sure if there is a way to fix this. The app is promising though.

Its Good but the Tracing Feature sucks its pretty illegal for other people mostly kids doesnt like tracing their own artwork,so im pretty sure you should remove the Tracing Feature of its app,shame for samsung...

Even after installing it, it kept crashing. Couldn't open it even once. :(

This could use shapes with ouline and fill. Snap to gris and considering it is called architecture..oh wait...ok

why the colors are too light? for example it gives gray instead of black

Easy to use, doesn't clog memory. Very nice interface.

This app got me addicted to drawing again. Would give 5, but it freezes constantly on a brand new note 9.

I just installed this app and it doesnt even open for me, it says that it is not able to open, 0 stars!!

First tracing I tried, app froze within the first a couple of minutes of use. Useless.

Everything was messed up! I tried my best to draw but it didint let me. You need to fix this right now!!!

good drawing app, my only problem is the crashes, and it crashes often :/

app needs to be optimized for android pie because it keeps crashing.

its being weird every time i try to draw it says permission needed not found but everything is allowed and then it closes the app i cant get on

After many searches, I finally found the app that I desired. Many thanks!

gool tools for draw , easy to use

This the far best app for Sketching! User friendly and intuitive.

Good would give 5 stars if you could save a drawing then start a new one then go back to the old

Really good for sketching concepts really quickly.. High utility

very bad controls and I cant even use tools or swich colors I dont know if this is just the game or bug

switching between tools and brush sizes is very cumbersome.

i spent abunch of time on a drawing and i cant even download it or even share it. please fix this.

great sketching tool!! great for painting aswell!!!

So frustrating to use. Honestly, just use ibis paint

use to work great until the newest update since it even crashes SAVING

good art app but the new update is very annoying allowing permission is stupid to use this app I've had this art ap for years and now I can't use it at all please stop this

Its a really good app but it needs the blur tool.

A little confusing but overall helpful

super app!! but now is not letting save or export

new android pie update crashes the application. pls check.

didn't work in infinix stylex 5 .... couldn't even open it

I'm only a kid so I'm kind of picky but it's a good app but its not my cup of tea Im not meaning to hurt feelings im just not the bigest fan of it it's hard to use to me.

Customize size can't make Max Res (5000x5000)

Thank you for fix it up this app! appreciate it much.

sounds like greatness yet will not load. says permissions needed.
