About this app

Convert your device into a digital sketchbook with more than 80 paint brushes, smudge, fill and an eraser tool. This fast and intuitive painting and drawing application will unlock the full power of your imagination. With support for pressure sensitive pens (like Samsung's S Pen) your device will be transformed into a real canvas.

Important: this is a free application with advanced features requiring a pro license in-app purchase. Single licence purchase will activate all devices associated with your Google account.

Features (some functions require pro license):
• High performance (GPU accelerated) paint engine
• Canvases up to 6144x6144 with 50 layers*
• Stylus pressure support
• Pressure simulation for touches
• 100+ brushes and tools (including smudge tool and gradient fill)
• Create custom brushes from imported images
• Selection and selection masks
• Layer clipping mask
• 10 layer filters (HSV adjust, brightness & saturation, color curves and more)
• Material design inspired, fast, fluid, intuitive and accessible user interface
• Import and export supports PNG, JPG and PSD (Photoshop Document)
• NVIDIA DirectStylus support
• Palm rejection - no more accidental zooming and panning when drawing

*) depending on device and available memory
†) some devices are incompatible with pressure simulation and palm rejection


You can paint, sketch and draw with ease thanks to fast and fluid brush engine. ArtFlow aims to replace your physical sketchpad and become universal art studio type application for Android™.

my #1 Go-To for all things art. Been using it for years, idk how many now to be honest. Well worth the paid version. Only thing I would add is a way to make some things quicker to achieve, such as an auto select for layers. Switching between layers is eventually time consuming when you need to switch during every adjustment to line things up. Can't think of many other improvements, it is great as-is. Bugs are almost non-existent. It is a ready to go app, quality exports, install now!

I personally enoy this app. it's perfect for my type of art style and isn't very complex. Edit: (I also removed a bunch of stuff) they took away multiple things that are nessecities and put purchasements over them. as a play pass member, i dont have to really deal with it. but i can imagine the pain of other artists that dont have play pass. i know this is a free game, but don't do this. or at least lower the amount of purchases in this. you can do better.

Still one of the better digital painting & sketching software I've used for Android. Freaked out when my whole gallery disappeared and thought all my work was lost! Turns out after updating, ArtFlow permissions get turned off. So if you run into this heart stopping issue simply go to "Settings" on your phone click "apps", click on "ArtFlow" scroll down and click "permissions" and "allow" access to storage. Reopen ArtFlow click on "gallery" and !vuola! your work should return from the dead!
