(EDIT: June 9th update did not fix the crash issue and art causing crashes.) Why the 1 star review? The bugs. The app crashes unexpectedly sometimes, when that happens often the art I was working on cannot be opened again. Doing so will cause the app to crash again. Even cleared the cache. I hope this can be fixed because it has the potential but the constant crashes is a turn off.

It used to work really well but now it keeps crashing and I can't open my old drawings. I've even been paying for the subscription. Update: Had to delete and reinstall the application because i couldn't open any of my artwork or create any new artwork at all. This resulted in all of my previous artwork being lost, now I'm super upset and I've canceled my subscription.

I have no idea what these low star reviews are about, I work in landscape mode on my iPad. It keeps your artwork up if you don't force quit the app. You can also set up auto save to prevent losing your art if there's a crash. You can save your work with quick export which goes straight to your image files, or air drop/direct share Yes, a subscription is annoying and feels predatory, but it isn't unique to CSP at all. It's still cheaper and way more accessible than other powerful art tools.
