Saves projects to "android/data" which has been restricted from general user access since android 12. It doesn't let you save as anywhere else. When you try to export rather than letting you pick a folder it forces you to share the exported file. You have to upload that file to Dropbox to get the file. It would literally be a 5 star if it didn't have these bizarre restrictions, it's otherwise perfect.

Currently there's a strange glitch? Essentially, the entirety of a frame becomes invisible. Or just completely deletes. It's hard to explain, but I'll be working on one frame, and switch to next, only to see it completely gone. And even when I press undo to see what caused it, it's shown taking pieces and strokes from...nothing. It's as though it never existed, and I was editing nothing before. It's very weird, and I hope it gets fixed soon. It's really starting to cause me some problems.

Typically, this is an awesome app, but it breaks my Bigme Inknote tablet. When I open it, the screen flashes indefinitely and renders everything else—including Android gestures—useless until I reboot the device or "force clear memory". It is Android 11 and fully updated. But I'm thinking it's a problem with that specific device. So, for those with working Android, definitely recommend, this is awesome!
