  1. Zaliya Khan-avatar

    This app still requires a lot of options such as more brushes, layers, an option by which I can select a picture and move the picture... and also when I want to move the surface while being zoomed in I cannot properly reach the edges... I would suggest to add some features from PicsArt app. And I would love it if the brushes could draw pointer lines... There should be a option for the opacity of the brushes as well. Over all a good app.

  2. Faith Dana-avatar

    This is a really great app. I love the way the paint option let's you mix colors. It makes a really nice fade of colors. The pen is smooth and it has so many options of things to color and draw. You are able to draw on your own photos and other users post their work and can give inspiration.. your color options are great. The one thing that is weird to me is that you can only pick up to 5 color choices at a time and I love all your shades. I use this app daily. I really do love it.

    I'm glad we have a place to draw and share art easily and take an almost private thing (I do) and get to help introverted people (like myself ) to open up and shine on a public stage! Thank you developers so much for making it free and easy to use 😊 I hope people will like this app as much as I did!

  4. Christine S-avatar

    Search is worthless! Whenever you try to search for a particular piece of art to color it shows you what other people have done. App is not user-friendly at all. Can't find the things that I've already started but not posted. Needs a lot of work. Haven't done anything on it in a couple of years because of this. Samsung it's time to fix this thing.😠

  5. Layne-avatar

    PENUP has been a great creative outlet for me during these strange times. It's super easy and fun. Great for any age!! Theres lots of options for the creative mind. Coloring pages and challenges are pretty awesome. Definitely a must have.

  6. Calvin-avatar

    Pretty good! Nice and smooth with little to no lag. However, I wish there was some form of layer and transform functionality so I can move layers around instead of having to erase what I've done and draw it again in the right spot.

  7. Stacy Williams-avatar

    Love this app! It helps me relax and there are fantastic tools to use. Some of the artists on this app are incredibly talented. Sometimes I just spend hours looking at the various artists work. Works best with a Galaxy Note and stylus pen, imo.

  8. Monica Munster-avatar

    It's a pretty nice simple drawing tool for quick sketching or doing some fun quick drawings. I do wish this app had more features, for instance I would love to have a layer function. Every drawing app swould really also have a selection tool as well, but that's my opinion. For what it is it's actually pretty nice in its simplicity, and has a lot of decent brushes despite the limitations.

  9. chloe anderson-avatar

    Easy to use, fun and creative. Whether you want to draw your own thing or colour in this is a great app to calm nerves or have a bit of creative time. Its also a great way to keep my kids quiet for 10 mins if im in need when on the go.

  10. nakul1307-avatar

    It is very entertaining to use pen up . This app not only let's you colour but even displays the drawing and colourings of other people who use this app. It also let's you choose the perfect picture you want to paint. in all, I love it

  11. julian miller-avatar

    EXCELLENT app, but this product is obviously geared up for a right handed person. Please could you add the ability to move the brushes /colour menu to the other side of the screen. Being a lefty I know having those options on the right hand side would make it a five star product.

  12. Romer Jacks-On-avatar

    As a person who has loved to draw since I can remember, I've always been my worst critic with art, with even the slightest error or a line out of place I'd give up and not complete the drawing. Using PENUP has easily restored my confidence in my art

  13. Emma Barton-avatar

    This is the best app ever it has challenges and you can look at other people's drawings for insperation if you want and you can colour the only bad thing is that I don't have a pen and it makes it hard to draw but that is my problem!

  14. Caius Smith-avatar

    Pretty great program to use with mobile artwork. Havent had any problems. It would be a 5 star rate if there was a way to change the canvas size. Maybe there is but I havent found it yet

  15. Ed Makin-avatar

    Love the coloring options. Great to relax and have fun. There are no right or wrongs. You color however you want. Enjoy looking at others in how they chose to color. Very enjoyable app!

  16. Ezra Letgouthang Singsit-avatar

    Ezra Letgouthang Singsit


    It's really fun painting... With this app I spent almost all my free time and gets more creative. Thanks to the developer. Hope you achieve greater and come with better ideas to improve the app

  17. Carol Kent-avatar

    I'm not the greatest artist... I wouldn't even consider myself an artist; but this program allows me an opportunity to doodle and draw and even sometimes make a picture that looks like something identifiable. For that I am grateful!

  18. Ahmed Osman-avatar

    Yes; it's good, but need more as - Add shapes (like line or circle) - Copy & paste capture from your draft (inside the app) - more sitting in pen or brush size & resolution.

  19. Daniela Krapivnik-avatar

    Daniela Krapivnik


    This is an awesome app, but it is missing some key features like a colour picker. It's near impossible to match a colour without one.

  20. Filip Nicola-avatar

    Great App for drawing, mostly if you have a Samsung Note Series phone, which has many additional features for their S pen stylus. I highly recommend it.

  21. Autumn Cambra-avatar

    Love this app! However it stopped posting my drawings and colorings a few days ago and I can't figure out why or how to fix it? Any suggestions?

  22. sammie jammies-avatar

    This up is the best app ever it has coloring, drawling, and if you are not great at art like me there is a thing were you can trace a picture and color it.

  23. jessica lister-avatar

    Love this app. Very easy to use however a few more tools would be amazing. For example a "fill area" tool would be great

  24. Nicholas Pasquill-avatar

    Nicholas Pasquill


    Amazing application for making and sharing artwork of all kinds. It's also free fifty 😁. I love it.

  25. White Pnter-avatar

    Everything is fine but a color picker is a MUST. Layers also an issue but color picker is much more important than layers.

  26. Chelsea Eggleston-avatar

    Chelsea Eggleston


    This app is aaaaaaamazing! Maybe I'm just a noob but I love the way your pencil strokes actually look like pencil strokes. It works perfect with with my Note 10+

  27. Paul Gunnels-avatar

    I love this app! It gives you the pages to color, yet it allows you to use your imagination so you can make it your own.

  28. Adilene M-avatar

    Love it! Super easy to use, and you get to enjoy amazing art work by other artists!

  29. Insane Nitro-avatar

    An exuisite new art medium for the young or old, experienced or beginner, sketch, colour to your hearts content then share them flip them, cut them in half! Let your imagination take you on an endless journey of joyful productivity. Thank you "Penup" for this amazing new medium.

    This is a very calming and creative app......when I need to clear my head and I can't sing, this app brings me solace 😍😍

  31. Kelly pierce-avatar

    I was glad to see this supported dark mode. Then HIGHLY DISAPPOINTED that it's dark everywhere BUT the drawing screen?? Which is where you need it. AND I'm unable to like any posts from people that I follow anymore. PLEASE FIX THIS

  32. Rebecca Moore-avatar

    Love this app a must for anyone even if you dont draw regulary. They have coloring pages to. A big stress reliever.

  33. John Bosick-avatar

    Awesome app for someone with absolutely no drawing/painting talent feel like they can create something beautiful and relax while doing it!

  34. jim fritz-avatar

    Amazing app. If you like to draw. And experience some incredibly talent, get this beautifully designed app...

  35. Al Faizan-avatar

    Liked the dark mode feature but the paper should be black so when I'm drawing a different shade of white it doesn't mix with paper the feature should be in the app

  36. Shmapple Pie-avatar

    So much fun I love being able to colour in and draw on my phone. works just as well as some really expensive pro art apps

  37. Courtney Doucet-avatar

    Courtney Doucet


    I love this platform. It's so great to express yourself as an artist. This makes it fun and whimsical.

  38. Downytide-avatar

    This is surprisingly enjoyable, I've been using the coloring book function almost daily for relaxation.

  39. Elizabeth Clows-avatar

    I absolutely love this app...... There could be more brush choices and finer tuned brush details but other than that im in love......😍

    Bobthebobgamer Gamer To The Right Thing


    It is really fun and easy to use but at the same time ther is no layering so it makes it a little bit more difficult but it is still good

  41. Samantha Denbow-Seeley-avatar

    Samantha Denbow-Seeley


    Love this app! Great variety of pages and I love how you can see other people's work.

  42. Willy Mendoza-avatar

    I'm not really into painting, it would be great if the color selection is a bit more user friendly

  43. Ethan Adkins-avatar

    Great app but lack of basic tools like layers and a color fill tool for drawing keeps me from giving 5 stars.

  44. Luana Brandão-avatar

    it's a great app but I don't get why you can't have all the colors available at all times, just a few.

  45. César Camargo-avatar

    It's so useful for the designers and people who is learning to use colors and shadows

  46. Renee Cager-avatar

    I just started using this while we're social distancing and I find it extremely relaxing.

  47. David Elmes-avatar

    So much fun!The live drawing is great for learning.

  48. Aspyn Schaeffer-avatar

    It's my favorite coloring app because it's not a tap a section you actually have to color in the picture

  49. Patrick Londo-avatar

    Great UI and with the given tools absolutely amazingly drawing capabilities!!

  50. Olivia Hunter-avatar

    Very relaxing for me, enjoy doing live drawings and coloring , no judgement zone .

  53. Dave Dat-avatar

    It's the best you explore others coloring and drawings and it is so much fun

  54. SRP 3110-avatar

    It would be so much better if you could set the size for your photo drawing.

    Excellent app with varied learn to draw abilities.

  65. Alex .C.-avatar

    I love the possibility of making realistic drawings.

  66. Aurelia Lynne-avatar

    Good coloring app but it could add a coloring/image layer function

  67. Pavel Vasylenko-avatar

    Pavel Vasylenko


    Excellent app. I'm new to android world and I love the Spen on samsung and coloring in the app

  68. Roman Escalante-avatar

    Roman Escalante


    I love it! Great for the quarantine and pass time!🙃

  69. Atomic Spark-avatar

    Please add layers and the ability to draw in landscape

  70. Gouri Kashyap-avatar

    Love this after a long time in my life, I started painting again thanks samsung for s pen

  71. ZhinArts-avatar

    This is a good app with so much potnetial. I personally would like to raise the score more if the options weren't too simple. I think it would be perfect if you could add layers, zoom in/out where ever, and a select tool so it's easy to fix a sketch. Not to mention, when I start to draw, there are code bars that form where I draw. Is that an astetic/there a way to turn it off? This app is functional and easy to use so I will keep it. Please update so I can love it more! Got something good here!

  72. RAGE QU1T-avatar

    nice one but need more content like filter or somethings like that

  73. athi-avatar

    Good app, would appreciate if it had layers.

  74. ZZ Playsroblox-avatar

    It's the best app ever I love it so much because I love coloring!!

    Mrs. Iris Rivera-Selby


    Used it and love it!! The coloring the different pens..

  76. Hannah Leleux-avatar

    Really like penup. Great brushes, love the auto fill for coloring. The live drawing is a really cool feature! Only things that I think would improve user experience are: 1. Access to your profile on the bottom menu bar in place of the my feed button. So we can get to our drafts without having to go to the little profile bubble at the top. 2. Traversing the live drawing time less sensitive. 3. Adding autofill/insert shapes when drawing

  77. Nellie Lemos-Meireles-avatar

    Nellie Lemos-Meireles


    I love this app. It's amazing, from the vivid color selection to the effects that can be used to make your art work come to life. There is no app that even comes close. This is the app for all...from beginners to more advanced art skills this let you accomplish what you want. 5 stars is the highest rating but it far exceeds that & has so many options from learn to draw to simply coloring etc. So addictive. Thank you because I absolutely love it.

  78. Sherrell Baker-avatar

    Hi, I love this app. I have been doing this for about a year. However,there have been several updates and improvements. The problem is that when you guys updated we have no way of knowing which ones we completed before. Now you can only see what has been completed since the update. Please fix so we don't spend time doing the same project over again. I have over 800+ post and I dont want to do any of them over because I can't remember if I did it. I hope this matter can be fixed please. Thanks

  79. Medo Hamdani-avatar

    If you want to learn how to draw, then this is the app for you, since they have this awesome feature which called (Live Drawing) which enable you to follow the drawing or the sketch of a photo that were drawn by an artist. Also, they have another feature, which is you can take any photo from your gallery and redraw it which having the original image in the background.

  80. Trina Duke-avatar

    I just began exploring Penup and I can already say that the experience is a calming and relaxing one. The artwork is well done, providing variety and many artistic styles. The tools and different brushes provided are adequately sufficient as are the color pallets. Also, I find the ability to create and use your own color pallets a plus as well. All in all, a very pleasant surprise...

  81. CROBAR81-avatar

    Very fun app but please add layers! Also, I find in live drawings that when I copy along, it covers the original and I can no longer see. I've tried "show all" but halfway through a drawing I have no reference other than switching back and forth from video to my own drawing. This is super frustrating. It would be great if we could adjust the opacity on the video or some other functions to achieve a similar result.

  82. Marvin Seignon-avatar

    Good app just need a couple things but overall great app

  83. Sherri Fauci-avatar

    I absolutely love this app. No ads and it allows me to explore my creative side (anything from freestyle drawing to manipulating pre-drawn images) in a supportive community of experienced and beginning artists. The ability to utilize different art tools (watercolor/oil style paint to crayons and pastels) allow for more dynamic and intricate drawing and coloring techniques. It is a nice way to relax using your phone or tablet.

  84. Debra Cummings-avatar

    I truly love pen up. I love the coloring app and being able to share the artwork. I am having a problem on Penup. I have met a lot of wonderful artists with unbelievable talent. And nice people. But some of them are leaving Penup for good. This is because of some horrible activity that is going on and is out of control. Art theft, bullying, horrible language, and people preying on children. They are saying you are not doing anything about it. Please check into this and do something, please!

  85. Malina Chainey-avatar

    I absolutely love this app. Let's me create art anytime/anywhere. It has all the tools I would use to create artwork in an art class, able to upload any pics to recreate, connect with other artist, constest, can teach you how to draw, paint many different types of pics and styles of art.Even my kids (3 & 11)love creating art on this app.

  86. Gamers4Days-avatar

    Love this so much, being able to actually enjoy creating art and see others drawings is great! Really wish they'd add like a shapes or something though for those of us that like the symmetry but cant get it by drawing, the shapes would be nice to start a rough outline of the drawing that is wanted. 💁‍♂️

  87. KindredLemon-avatar

    Every other drawing app on the play store SUCKS. this one's very good. You can even blend! Fantastic!! However. There's no layers witch is absolutely CRIMINAL! You cannot call yourself a drawing app if you don't have layers! What were you smoking! This app is unusable because of this. Fix it and you've got a 5/5 app here

  88. naveen kannan-avatar


  89. gemma anderson-avatar

    KingKoopaRocks 1


    I must say this app is fantastic! I haven't had it for long and I'm absolutely amazed with how much detail you're able to put into your creation. I haven't had any problems using this app, so if you want to doodle or make designs, then I highly recommend trying this app.

  92. Samuel Savino-avatar

    Great little drawing app. It really makes you appreciate the power of the Note line of Samsung phones. Not only productivity monster but an artist's phone. Not many phones can claim that, it almost makes carrying around a sketch pad obsolete!!! Many thanks for PENUP!!!

  93. Paris Foreman-avatar

    I enjoy this app!!! Its very stress relieving! There is so many coloring options from finding something I can color fast while waiting in the doctor office or something that I can take my time with to send to my husband!!! I don't have anything negative to say about this app...🥰

  94. Shannon Milliner-avatar

    Shannon Milliner


    . I don't know if I would really call this a Art app although it does say "share your drawings", admin seem to be extremely strict on what they consider art and like to restrict the vision you have if don't draw under certain guidelines .I've learnt while being on PENUP Don't draw zombies, blood, or the human anatomy (they won't let you share your drawings). Art is wonderful if you don't have to draw between the four walls .

  95. Ryan L-avatar

    I love coloring and filing in with beautiful colors!! So much fun and makes the time go by if you need it too. I turned my parents on to it too. Cause they both have galaxy note series phones. My mom has note9 and my dad has note5. Thanks for the penup app. I appreciate it so much!! Love how we can also see everybody else coloring and other artist artwork! And the games and competitions to see what other artist can do with the picture of the day or drawing of the day! Thanks Ryan!😁

  96. Luke Jureidini-avatar

    pretty great but i noticed that, even though people cant directly download your artwork, you can still screenshot it, which is basically another form of downloading and i would recommend Samsung to try turning screenshot in this specific app off. thats a suggestion, but i love this app.

  97. Sabrina Schiermeyer-avatar

    Sabrina Schiermeyer


    I Just got the new Samsung note 10+ and it came with the pen up app. It is very convienent and fun. I like the coloring part and I like to see What others can draw. Its also real easy to write quick notes instea of having to rush and find paper to jot things down.

  98. Alan Arnold-avatar

    I'm really torn, great app, great place to just treat like an art-room ...but, just nudes without anything pornographic is too much for them so that rules out 1/2 of my work! I'll just Keep looking for that perfect platform,, although this is close. Maybe I'm just having a reeeally grumpy week!

  99. lol bit-KC-avatar

    Pen up is the best drawing app that i had ever had you gan draw drawings that move your own drawings AND the blank drawings but u can color them in and do shading and the best part ITS FREE!!! But if i was the owner of the app i would try to inprove things like some of the brashes.

  100. Yeni Monsalvo-avatar

    Best app to relax and to show some creativity
