Review from Warunicorn
Longtime ArtRage fan for PC is loving it. Been waiting for this ever since it was announced. You have to expect that this is a mobile version, so some features aren't available due to hardware constraints. However, almost all the features in the desktop version are available in this version. e.g., Selections are omitted, which is fine since you can actually share the ArtRage PTG files so you can work with them later on in the desktop version. Just about every function that's familiar on the desktop version is available here - canvas settings, laye
This app has been working fine (since April '17) on my Chromebook Plus (has an ARM processor) till today when I installed the latest update to my Chromebook which said that now Android apps would be able to run on Chromebooks. Well most of my apps still run on my Chromebook Plus, just not ArtRage. When I start the app it opens up in a very tiny window and I can't get it to go to full screen. If there is a menu item or button to go to full screen I am unable to access it because of the tiny window. It was really fun to paint on till this system update.
Bit disappointing. It's not really S-Pen user friendly. Ton of lag. An eraser would be nice to have with a Pro version, with variable sizes. Also it's not touchpad friendly, if you accidentally touch the screen with the side of your hand you've got to go back and go over your work, because using the return tab doesn't always get it all. That's just for starters. Also 4 minutes after buying the option for a refund was already gone. So not too happy about that. I
I took some time to submit this comment and true enough I didn't know the full extent of the app. However, there's no symmetry!!! Why??? And no grids either! Using a Note 8. But there's still some lag on the gloop pen. Or when using the knife.. That's annoying. I have sufficient ram, storage, etc.
Like the App. Previously used it on Apple I pad pro where it was possible to preview the size of brushes / tools as you moved the slider. This feature is sadly lacking on the Android version which is very annoying. Please consider including this in next update .
It crashes when first opening it. It also lags and then crashes when using the smudge and knife tool. It happens a lot so I was forced to use other apps that actually work like Artflow, Infinite Painter... If this app didn't crash and lag a lot I would easily give it 5 stsrs. I'm using a Galaxy Note 8, and Lenovo Yogabook. Both have a lot of ram power. So the problems are with the app...
I love this app, I've used it on PCs and iOS and so it was inevitable that I'd get it for Android....and so I get it for my Note 8 and that images are not saving. To say I'm unimpressed is an understatement.....having to screencap an image to share is ridiculous. Fix this and I'll happily amend my rating to 5.
