I love this app! I use it only laptop and my device. I'm able to move my work from my laptop to phone and vis versa. Which is helpful when I want to draw anywhere! I like the feature where I can pay to have more devices, which gives me control of how much I spend. The assets are nice! I can use 3d characters and objects for character, object, or room design! This is a great app for beginners and intermediate people! It might be difficult if you don't have experience with Adobe. I prefer this app

I have bought the one time purchase a few years ago on my laptop, I use it to this day and wanted to try it for the Android since I can draw on it. You have to pay a monthly fee and not a one time thanks to greedy developers. I can't even use the same account or activation key to use this app without giving them more money. I'll look for a drawing app somewhere else.

This app is only good if you have the money to subscribe to it. Once you use up your measly HOUR of free trial, your forced into basically using a higher quality Microsoft Paint. Not only that, but the controls are overly complicated and the end results are almost never worth it. This app always makes the art come out choppy and weird, plus it's difficult to even save to your device! Overall, totally not worth it. You'd be better off with literally any other art app than this.
