This is the best app to sketch, it has a bunch off tools and brushes, it very easy to use, and the best part, no ads. But there's a bug that the ruler just suddeny disappears as you are using it, it is mildly annoying but simply restarting the app fixes it. Edit, I found another bug where if you change the background color more than 2 times, the undo button stops working. This happened to me twice, but I got lucky and didn't loose that much progress.

The app is fun to use if you're trying to photoshop pictures, and or screen shots. The only problems I'd like to be fixed is, 1, after just a bit of editing and ect., for some weird reason, it won't let me do ANYTHING anymore! It just stops me from coloring anything! 2, when I'm coloring or editing, the color I'm using just goes through the thing I'm coloring over! I like the app, but I would like you to please stop these problems from happening again. Please and thank you!

This was my go to since I have android and always worked well. Two months after switching to a new device, it suddenly refused to load sketches from the gallery. I uninstalled and reinstalled but the problem persists. I uninstalled it and tried other apps but couldn't find one I liked. Just reinstalled and if the glitch is fixed, it might be my go to again. I'm delighted with the improvements to the color palette, including the ability to create custom pallets. Keeping my fingers crossed.
