Straightforward and easy to use- the daily prompts are nice, along with the timelapse feature and option to import images. However, when I try to quickly draw with a large brush, the app crashes and my work is lost. Lately, the button to create a new drawing is often missing, so I'm unable to draw at all. When I am able to create a drawing, there is a heavy amount of lag, which makes it extremely hard to work with. This was my favorite sketch app, but sadly it's unusable for me at the moment

Great art app, for sketches, doodles you name it! I've been using it for 4 years and increase in number of layers and the pressure recognition is great, though the UI can be difficult due to how the touch screen works, and the sensitivity of the tools' slider size. The new login authentication is annoying, it's great for confidence in security but I have to do it everytime I fully reopen the app, and then it doesn't even go back into the app after I login but to the listing on the playstore.
