I love the way the app feels, and I'm incredibly impressed with the quality of the brushes and most of the app, but as someone who's never used the app before, [not even on computer] the user interface is incredibly hard to decipher. Most guides on the support or ask websites are incredibly confusing or just aren't present for basic things like duplicating a brush. [Which I still have no idea how to do] The youtube channel mostly caters to the desktop version, so every source is unnapliable.

Loving it! Using the s24u with spen, love the new simple mode. Can use all my brushes from gumroad/artstation but its a bit of a process importing them from studio to simple mode, having to do it one by one. Overall a great mobile drawing experience! I find both studio and simple mode to be easy to navigate (im familiar with csp on PC). Definitely my new main mobile drawing app!

Everything except the actual drawing is awful. Terrible menus, confusing ui (and simple mode isn't a fix for this), and not to mention it's also fairly buggy. Unfortunately, it's also probably the best program for drawing, period. I've never used a program that feels as good as Clio Studio to use. If you can get over the terrible everything else, Clip Studio is amazing.
