Major lag on Galaxy Note 8.0 Feels like beta. Fun app with great potential, but very laggy when Zooming in or out--frustrating to work with. Takes several seconds for screen to render when coloring on a second layer. Needs export for Pro with layers intact to make this useful. Color picker is too sensitive. Fix lag issue, add Pro export options, and this will be worth 5 stars.
Built for line work and illustration. This app is really built for illustrations and line work, which won't fit all artists. I love this app because it only has a limited tool set; simplicity helps me be more creative since I am better able to focus on the art rather than the tool. Instead of a lot of brushes, pencils, markers, and ink, this app presents you with a sheet of paper and some nice sharpies. That's absolutely perfect for me, but it might not be enough for everyone.
Almost The app has its shortcomings, but overall the brush effects are rather nice if your style is compatible. And limitations often do not really hinder the creative process. But here are some things that keep to annoy my, because they seem so unnecessary. If you are in pen (only) drawing mode with the pressure sensitive brush selected and swipe the canvas with a finger you get a warning: Pressure sensitive brush only with stylus. Well, as I'm in pen only mode I did not intend to draw with the finger. You can't copy a layer, something I like sometime to disentangle things. You can't shift/scale the background image and even how it is placed on the canvas (rotation wise) is somewhat obscure. The color puck can't be used to change the color by dragging like in sketchbook proon the desktop. At first glance I hoped for that. The feature 's also missing in sketchbook pro android, but there is nothing that looks like the color puck. All in all I like it, sometimes at least.
It failed to export I paid for it. Had high hopes. Hopes were dashed when it failed to export 5 times. Didn't think a pay-for app would be this terrible. How do I get my money back? And when it does export all there is, is a blank 1kb .png! How can Autodesk charge this much for something so full of bugs?
Needs an update, like yesterday. I love the potential of this app but it lacks basic functions I expected. For loose work such as the sample images show, the app works well enough. But for precise work such as logo designs that need vectors over bitmaps or city scapes that require sharp lines, it sucks. Mainly because there are no basic shape tools. There isn't a line too. There's no fill tool, no gradient tool. There isn't a way to select and manipulate points. Disappointing. 2* until some basic features are supported.
Generic and lacking features from Sketchbook Pro Vector graphics is a way better idea when you have a mobile device and want to share your drawings to PC or social media. But this app just lacks the tool bench and completeness of their raster app, Sketchbook Pro.
