Dragon_Queen_Alexia's Review of Tayasui Sketches ProReviewed on 9/30/18 6:43 PM
I love this app! I use it all the time and it is super helpful to let me create anything I imagine! I was hesitant to pay for it at first, just sticking the the limited Sketches app and then I tried the free trial and fell in love! I love both apps, they are both worth downloading, but Pro is definitely worth the money!

This has been my favorite drawing app for many years now
Go Bananas!_101_'s Review of Tayasui Sketches ProReviewed on 9/20/18 1:04 AM
This app is well-made, easy to use, and creates gorgeous images. There are numerous options for tools, colors, and layers. Also, the ability to save with a transparent background is extremely helpful. I am a beginning graphic designer and illustrator and this app is perfect for those needs, especially on a budget when a professional drawing pad is not an option! The only thing I would add is a text option. I am currently creating my drawings on the app, opening the drawing in Word, and manually adding text there. Besides that, this is a beautifully made, realistic, intuitive drawing app!
Mrs meep's Review of Tayasui Sketches ProReviewed on 9/19/18 12:50 AM
i did wish that there was a feature to turn the canvas so that it was horizontal instead of vertical. or there could be a setting when you make a canvas where you could choose the dimensions. just a suggestion, though. i’m happy with the app right as it is.
MRatna's Review of Tayasui Sketches ProReviewed on 9/11/18 3:10 AM
I LOVE this program! It’s somewhat limited - though that’s part of its zen-like charm. It’s a bit...idiosyncratic, but I can deal with that. Its strengths are it’s amazing watercolors and pen (with splatter) tools. The ruler features are pretty cool tool. Because of my very positive experience using the Pro version of Sketches on the iPad I decided to download the same for my Mac. That has been a disappointment so far. It just doesn’t work nearly as well and some of my favorite features are missing. I hope Tayasui kicks their MacOS version of Sketches up a notch soon!
Wild Wolf Studios's Review of Tayasui Sketches ProReviewed on 8/8/18 11:03 PM
So far every drawing app I’ve gotten on my phone has been hard to use or just doesn’t have enough tools to make a good drawing, but this app is very easy to draw even considering you have to use your fingers. There are a couple problems I have with this app though- One, there isn’t a tool that’s really small. I value small pens so the lines don’t look fat if I’m making a detailed drawing. Two, the blending tool is too large. Blending is important if you want smooth pictures but since the blender is this app is so large it blends the outline too. And three, sometimes the app will randomly download your pictures to your camera role. This isn’t a very big deal but it’s kind of annoying having to keep deleting pictures. Anyways, I think this app is great and I highly recommend it to anyone who has interest in art.
insaneseb's Review of Tayasui Sketches ProReviewed on 8/30/19 2:05 PM
Great app, very simple, easy to use. I use this app probably every single day at least have 200+ hours on this app alone. Things i would really like in the app: -Select and delete multiple drawings at a time. -In “symmetry” the pixel brush doesn't work all. Honestly other that that this app is really great.
AHHaifa's Review of Tayasui Sketches ProReviewed on 8/30/19 2:05 PM
I never write updates. However, after the most recent update I felt like this was very necessary. I’ve been using this app for years, it’s been my go-to as an artist and I live for the simplicity of this app. It’s amazing. Because of this, the new update has left me feeling very conflicted. I really hope the developer’s notice the problems that have followed up with this update. For the first time ever this app is actually slow. When I pinch to zoom out of the canvas it sort of glitches and takes way longer than necessary to leave the drawing. And when I come back to it and it auto saves, sometimes the loading page gets stuck and the app basically crashes. And then there goes all my progress. This app used to occasionally auto save upon changing layers a couple of times; now it only auto saves if I pinch out of the image and click back on it, and that’s if I’m lucky enough for the app to not crash/freeze on me again. Also, when I change layers, it now takes a good minute until my pencil can finally erase or draw. These problems are absolutely frustrating, but granted I’ve been using this app for so long I really hope it changes. I’d hate to use a different program.

mthcarolina's Review of Tayasui Sketches ProReviewed on 8/30/19 2:05 PM
So so wish this app didn’t crash because I upgraded to Pro to use more of the tools. Really enjoy it, but now doesn’t work. Really bummed, hope the developers can get it fixed because it’s fun as well as intuitive to use when it’s working properly!!!
balancero's Review of Tayasui Sketches ProReviewed on 8/30/19 2:05 PM
This app deserves real 4+. I have tried several best drawing/sketching apps and for need of everyday sketches this is the most convenient and easy to use app. I use it on iPad pro and iPhoneX. For 5 stars I would appreciate endless canvas so drawings can be extended in any direction and also rotating to make it more easier to draw. Everything else is just right! Continue your great work!
Bellannick's Review of Tayasui Sketches ProReviewed on 8/30/19 2:05 PM
Great app. This app is a great reintroduction to drawing on my iPad. Just having Apple Pencil 2 problems. The tap feature on my pencil keeps crashing the app. Specifically when I try to tap back from the eraser. The crash causes me to lose what I was working on sadly.
ikafi's Review of Tayasui Sketches ProReviewed on 8/30/19 2:05 PM

expectations 2019's Review of Tayasui Sketches ProReviewed on 8/30/19 2:05 PM
After using this app for three projects that I was able to use flawlessly, the following day nothing works at all! Not even the help function! All the reviews say to how great this app is but then dismisses in the same review a huge problem… This warrants a very low star rating. Inconsistency is the worst thing of all. I wouldn’t have purchased it but for the high rating... people need to be careful not to jump to high levels of praise before you experience an app thoroughly.

MattPaulsen's Review of Tayasui Sketches ProReviewed on 8/30/19 2:05 PM
A while back I bought the pencil 52 solely to use it with this app and the developers removed its compatibility with the app suddenly. Recently options for layers were removed for some reason which is very upsetting. Also, sometimes for no reason the app’s undo button doesn’t work. Other than that has great tools and works well with the Apple Pencil and is very easy to pickup on and use with good user interface.
sorry4ever's Review of Tayasui Sketches ProReviewed on 8/30/19 2:05 PM
Feb. 13, 2019 Thanks to the developers for providing the tutorials. Only problem I'm having is that as soon as one of the tutorials is over - Bam! The app crashes. I watched around three videos, and the app crashed each time one was over. I really want to watch them all. But I know it will be fixed, so I'm not too worried. Now it's time to try out the app since it's Been updated. I love it. Thanks again. Previous review I gave was last year, and it follows here: Previous Review Feb. 04, 2018 I deleted my old review and now I am giving a new one. I enjoy using the app because I like the way the results look. I have no bones to pick with any of the developers. I think that they created a beautiful app that is easy to use. Now for the negative parts... 1. The save feature messes up and I lose my work at times, but not always. 2. The automatic save produces blank photos before the actual photos. 3. The app does strange things at times for some odd reason. Well, I have no idea why this app is so unpredictable. I wish that it were more stable. I know that the developers do updates and bug fixes. But as much as things change, they seem to stay pretty much the same. In conclusion: I love the app, I just wish it worked better. Sorry 4 Ever.

I’ve used this app for a while now and I love it! Only issue is the new update (20) seemed to get rid of the Flip Left/Right tool or places it somewhere else. What happened to it? Any answer would be awesome, love this app but I was confused when the tool just disappeared. Thanks!
sivancat's Review of Tayasui Sketches ProReviewed on 8/30/19 2:05 PM
This app, while easy to use, has a very small collection of brushes and a very annoying glitch. This glitch is that when trying to use the redo tool the app kicks you out and deletes the entire layer you were working on. All in all, good for beginning artists but very annoying as you grow in skill.
lsal's Review of Tayasui Sketches ProReviewed on 8/30/19 2:05 PM
The devs are super responsive and great! I groused about the the fill tool now excessively smoothing out the ends, and they replied that it’s actually being fixed! Awesome. This is an awesome program that can easily let you export PDFs of your artwork as entire notebooks to yourself. I’ve never seen any other program be so convenient, and I was a huge fan of other earlier iOS drawing apps.

Michael James Urwin's Review of Tayasui Sketches ProReviewed on 8/30/19 2:05 PM
There are so many tools it’s amazing, but the app feels like it’s in beta. The tools are very clunky and you constantly are either undoing or redoing everything because the hand deception is poor. I also really wish that you could zoom in a little, but even the slightest zoom and everything goes blurry. Overall the app is okay, but it needs some work.
KJ2176's Review of Tayasui Sketches ProReviewed on 8/30/19 2:05 PM
I am not an artist but I love to draw randomly to relieve stress. This app is super realistic and I love all the different tools like the marker, the watercolor brush, and the colored pencils. There’s even coloring books you can purchase in the app which work with the tools. It’s a fantastic app.
Pollydoggydaddy's Review of Tayasui Sketches ProReviewed on 8/30/19 2:05 PM
With the most recent update, this app is now missing features it previously had. Example : you are no longer able to duplicate a layer within a drawing. This is an unfortunate reduction in drawing ability and makes the app less useful.
Often in Chicago's Review of Tayasui Sketches ProReviewed on 8/30/19 2:05 PM
I love this app, but when I’m working with a lot of layers, I have to close and reopen the app frequently, otherwise multiple layers will suddenly disappear, and for some reason they aren’t saved by auto-save, so they’re not recoverable, they’re just lost.

Tips are super helpful and backup saving is nice. Great for when you don't have a sketchbook lying around or want to send a quick drawing to friends! I love love love this app! The only small hiccup I have is that when you switch between the pen and eraser then back to the pen, the pen size locks with the smallest setting at '2.6' when you can actually make it smaller. Only way to fix is to restart. :/

Dude0u812's Review of Tayasui Sketches ProReviewed on 8/30/19 2:05 PM
Bought this app for drawing on my iPad Pro. Works pretty well on there, though the controls and navigation are hard to figure out at times. But what really bothers me is that I can’t view or edit drawings on a device other than the one I drew it on. Went to view on my phone and... blank. Need to implement an iCloud backup for this to have any sort of real value and utility.
BOI👌😂💯's Review of Tayasui Sketches ProReviewed on 8/30/19 2:05 PM

Creative APP-titude's Review of Tayasui Sketches ProReviewed on 8/28/18 11:51 PM
I have used and loved this app for over 4 years and it has been my preferred app for sketchnoting. I am puzzled why the option to use a grid or lines as a background has been removed. That was one of the features I find most helpful for sizing when zooming in. Could you bring it back In the next update?
Chibi-Chi's Review of Tayasui Sketches ProReviewed on 8/27/18 12:14 AM
I generally love the app, but I just tried to create a piece of art using the shapes tool...specifically the circles one, and I couldn’t functionally repeat the gestures to move the circle or change its angle. In other words, I might accidentally be able to move it, but couldn’t replicate it enough to create what I wanted to. Instead of actually moving the circle from point a to point b, by using 2 fingers (as the instructions say), it would rather, just shrink down my entire page...I’m not sure if I’m doing something wrong, but I worked on it for about a half hour & read all the instructions I could find...app creators, please fix this, or put up some better instructions on how to do this effectively...otherwise, great app!
27Gamer27's Review of Tayasui Sketches ProReviewed on 8/23/18 7:09 PM
Update: I am now using a iPad Pro 10.5. Since my original r review, there have been so many improvements. The app is smooth to color, the ruler tools have been expanded and are so useful. The unlimited layers and being able to stop and start coloring without any difference showing, are wonderful improvements. Coloring has become my new hobby. I love coloring with my Apple Pencil and I love using this app. The app does not freeze or crash. I am using an IPad Pro 9.7. The unlimited layers, which has recently been added, make it so much easier to do detailed coloring. The app allows me to download coloring book pages and then color them using the various tools and all the colors I can create.

whysomanyspps's Review of Tayasui Sketches ProReviewed on 8/21/18 9:20 PM
Shouldn’t have updated. The previous versions before they changed the way the ruler functioned was great, now the ruler is absolutely useless. Finger gestures constantly cause lines to erase, sometimes you can rotate it, sometimes you can’t. The ruler itself is constantly in the way while trying to use.... As I step down off my soap box about the ruler, one last plea....change it back.

AlanLaBudde's Review of Tayasui Sketches ProReviewed on 7/29/18 10:46 AM
Gave it five stars because I can’t live without the leaky pain pain PE and PEN… Some tessellating tiling properties would be nice… I can’t find a program with a leaky pen that will let me save it as a tilable rectangle like you do in fabric design....... also I would like a better option on fountain pen size voice recognition and I’m too lazy to erase… Spatter option would be nice… i’ll come back with more suggestions later especially if you give me .01% of the profits ha ha… For some reason one of my favorite painting program is this one: I guess it’s because that fountain pen works pretty good without a stylus; I guess I have yet to find a program that implements pressure sensitivity the way I like.

I love this app for watercolor sketches; the tools are excellent and easy to use. But I have a wish that is palette related and would be so very awesome. Please consider: The ability to import a background photo and optionally use the photo’s colors instead of creating or using a specific palette.
Meme kid ^III's Review of Tayasui Sketches ProReviewed on 7/26/18 4:09 PM
This is a fantastic drawing app. It has good features, a good aesthetic and the new update brought a pixel brush and a whole bunch of other really good features but it also made a lot of unnecessary changes. For one, it’s a drawing app. It’s supposed to be simple. When doing something creative I don’t want any input except what I’m working with. so a random quote that has nothing to do with the context of an app used for drawing shouldn’t be there. Also the large 2-color screen cover tools are broken. They overwrite the layer and you can’t undo them. This wasn’t in the last update and I’m confused why they would mess up a feature that didn’t need fixing. Another feature that is missing is the normal smear tool. I used it a lot and it’s gone now for some reason. That’s dumb. Other than that I haven’t found too many other problems other than a slight discoloration/loss of quality when copy/pasting or resizing selections but it’s to be expected. I can’t think of any other good features I would want for it other than just more/better brushes or a more advanced selection tool.
Susie-Q-tip's Review of Tayasui Sketches ProReviewed on 7/24/18 7:57 PM
I so want to give you all a five because it is such a well designed app. Just when all was going smoothly, and all the glitches were ironed out, there was a new update. Now there is no graph paper for background. I loved that when I was working out the design and perspective of my drawing. Also, the eraser doesn’t work after you save it once and try to open it up. I love this app, but it is driving me crazy.
TheLKSOne's Review of Tayasui Sketches ProReviewed on 7/23/18 8:34 AM
Tayasui!! The first s***** blender is NOT WORKING in your latest update...I rely on it a lot so Please fix it soon! I'm also not too happy with the new marker brushes..not a fan of the second one which is a bit sandy/grainy. Lastly but not least, I noticed that we can adjust opacity and size just by tapping the adjusting line thing...not a good feature!! When I draw and move across the adjustor line thing my opacity keeps moving!! Scrolling to adjust was already perfect! Sketches Pro is my Favorite drawing app so I hope a update with fixes comes soon...

Lots or well-thought-out tools, a nice workflow, including erasing with your fingertip when using the Apple pencil. But the watercolor mode, which is beautiful and works pretty well, often loses its mind... You often can't go back to a watercolor layer and paint on it. Sometimes the screen and the thumbnail in the layers list don't match - and the thumbnail is the right one!

patrick.schoolcraft's Review of Tayasui Sketches ProReviewed on 5/2/18 8:46 AM
the latest app update added more ‘ruler’ tools, such as circles, arcs, and splines. I do a lot of conceptual architecture drawings and this sells it. I have the Pencil by 53 and enjoy its variable thickness and eraser. some apps I use are good at precision, some don’t support the stylus, some are too complicated, some are too simple. with the addition of the new ruler toolset, this app is #1 for me. I would only suggest adding variable thickness support for the 53 Pencil. for my needs it isn’t essential, but I find it handy sometimes.

After using the first sketches, I found it to be a fun doodling app and I decided to keep it. Come to find out this pro version is out with more tools and everything a serious artist needs and I bought it. I am sooooo impressed with the inking ability and the fact it does not make those annoying pixels. I just hate how it keeps taking screenshots and it seems to be a tad bit screwy. Other than that, it’s wonderful to work with and worth the money. They provide so much in this app.

Dude I love this app. Sometimes glitchy, but very well made. I use it for all my drawings. Unfortunately, with the new ruler update sometimes layers just... disappear. I think it only happens to layers you use the new ruler tools on. Very scary, I hope they fix it soon.
Meg157322003🤗's Review of Tayasui Sketches ProReviewed on 5/1/18 6:22 PM
I really love this app, it's easy to use but also has a handful of great features. I'd even say I use this more than my digital tablet! Anyways, it's a great app but it would be very helpful to me (and other artists I'm sure!) if you could add a protect alpha? Like, if you could recolor the lines/art in some parts, so many times I accidentally use the wrong color and wanna change it without having to redraw all of it. It would be really awesome if you guys considered adding this feature. And some more layer options (besides screen and multiply) would be helpful, too. Thanks!

AuntViolet's Review of Tayasui Sketches ProReviewed on 4/7/18 4:53 PM
Hi! I teach Drawing on the iPad at University in the US and I was delighted to have heard about this app. I have just assigned it for a project for my class because I like it so much. I love the way the tools work and especially the watercolor and oil pastel tools. It has almost all the functions I need to teach my class. Unfortunately I also have some big problems with it’s reliability. Here is my problem/wish list: 1. The blade tool is unreliable when copying and puts images all over the page. This is by far the worst thing I have found yet as I have assigned a surface design project for my students. 2. There is either a long delay or some of the tools are quite slow in getting up to speed. This is driving me crazy. Sometimes I touch a new tool and it seems stuck on the old tool which is just awful. 3. Can you just save quietly in the background? I don’t necessarily want to know ever time you save. Also I dislike collecting a new image every time it saves. 4. Please: would like to see editable text so I can work on comics. I would also like to have access to all the fonts on my iPad do I can integrate with iFontMaker. Generally a few more text features are needed. 5. Re: Comics, there is a word balloon shape but I’d like to be able to render the shapes as white with a s***** around them so I can use them as actual word balloons. 6. Is there a way to enclose to linear and dot screen graduated tone tool😴(s)? 7. It would be nice to be able to link a few layers together so they can be transformed together without having to totally merge them. 8. Re: Color Palette, I want the color to change immediately upon tapping the palettes, not to have to “save” or “add’ THE COLOR, I just want to stay in the flow and use the color I have tapped PLEASE!! Generally the above issues make this app feel much more clunky than it needs to be. Within just a few upgrades I think you might have developed a close to perfect app. Thank you!
PP1331's Review of Tayasui Sketches ProReviewed on 4/6/18 4:03 AM
It is so important for a drawing app to be consistent and reliable. In a week of using this app I have already faced innumerable bugs that have resulted in the loss and compromise of the work I was doing. I will be uninstalling this and sticking to procreate and adobe.
Roo101lalalalala's Review of Tayasui Sketches ProReviewed on 4/30/18 12:36 PM
The brushes are amazing and are seriously versatile with the different ends they have for each brush. My only problem currently is when I want to save my image to Photos. It'll say export completed, but when I view my library, it's neither in the Sketches Album or my All Photos gallery. Thanks you, guys!
Bamcquern's Review of Tayasui Sketches ProReviewed on 4/26/18 5:48 AM
why am I getting ads when I've paid for this program before? and have y'all fixed the issue of being able to draw on the whole canvas? without the tools interfering?
Simpson Design's Review of Tayasui Sketches ProReviewed on 4/26/18 12:36 AM
All in all a great app, and the new features are fantastic! The only thing I'd really like to see is the ability to switch the toolbar to the right side for improved left hand use.
panthee84's Review of Tayasui Sketches ProReviewed on 4/26/18 12:08 AM
one of the best drawing app just even got better. really LOVE ❤️❤️❤️ the new ruler function, really easy to use without any complications . I also use procreate , zen brush 2 , artrage , i wouldn’t compare the apps , all are oranges but different kinds . highly recommended
Unhappy45678's Review of Tayasui Sketches ProReviewed on 4/12/18 6:34 AM
its a good app except for 2 things. when i connect apple pencil and start to draw, it stops my drawing the second it touches the screen and say ‘pencil connected’. yes i know its connected. i then have to undo the the dot the was drawn before the interruption. also, it constantly interrupts your flow with... ‘save’. constantly. please put the save into the background. other apps have figured out how to do this, you should to.

GoDurbin's Review of Tayasui Sketches ProReviewed on 4/11/18 2:39 PM
I found that sketches on my iPhone I was able to use a ruler in which I could change the degrees of direction but on iPad I can only do 90 or 45 degrees. Can I use the same ruler function on iPad?
bikesue99's Review of Tayasui Sketches ProReviewed on 4/10/18 4:53 PM
I started digital art about 4 years ago using Artrage on my ipad and progressed to a highend wacom tablet using corel painter. Lately I began using this app out in the field on an ipad pro with the apple pencil. I have to say that this app is rather comparable to my wacom and I am able to print my paintings on canvas in very large sizes. I am mainly a watercolorist and this app simulates watercolor better than any of the others I have tried and I have tried them all. I have only had it freeze and lose about 3 mins of work once.
Appolealthe's Review of Tayasui Sketches ProReviewed on 3/9/18 12:35 AM
The new update is fine, it’s just that it got rid of all my saved color palates and whenever I try to save another color palate, it erases it.
Destiny Santos's Review of Tayasui Sketches ProReviewed on 3/7/18 6:25 PM
When the app goes to save, everything freezes and you can’t do anything besides close the app. When you open it again it works for a little while then it happens again
Seliniaki Ilikia's Review of Tayasui Sketches ProReviewed on 3/30/18 8:21 PM
I love this app, and the colors and tools as well. The only problem I have is that there are no thin tools for me to use when I zoom in to add detail. The eraser is too large for erasing tiny things or going into corners, and using white doesn’t go well when I have a background on another layer. Also, some brushes are too broad and not suitable for fine painting, especially the watercolor. However, I have only recently started using the app, so if there are any solutions to these problems that I have not found, please send me a message. Thank you for this wonderful drawing app. o(≧v≦)o
KalimariDoctor's Review of Tayasui Sketches ProReviewed on 3/28/18 2:08 PM
I have been using tayasui sketches for a very long time since before the pro version and even layers and I have enjoyed the app more than other drawing apps but there have been some nagging issues that I hope can be resolved soon. This is my current list of issues that keep this app from getting 5 stars in my opinion. 1. No ability to zoom out entire canvas. Multiple drawing apps have this feature and yet this one doesn't. It is quite frustrating at times because the canvas takes up the whole screen and it is harder to draw on the corners. Everytime I zoom the canvas out it snaps back to the edges. 2. Glitches and bugs with the tools. The cut tool ,fill tool and paintbrush tool all have issues on the iphone. Using the cut tool does not feel like a smooth experience and it often stops responding leading me to constantly undo the mistakes it causes. The gradient function on the fill tool simply doesn't work sadly and will glitch the entire app. The fill tool also seems to destroy image data when filling over another color leading to very rough edges with an outline of the original color. The paintbrush tool has unpredictable mixing and at times will mix with a color that is no longer on the canvas. 3. Multilayer export has disappeared. Please bring this function back again. 4. Please include a color eyedropper tool as the current method of pressing the screen for a moment is convenient but troublesome when drawing slowly as this will prompt the eyedropper to appear often replacing the tool you were using and forcing you to start over. I am aware that this function can be turned off but that seems like a big trade off for a useful function. 5. Please add the ability to create paragraphs with the text box tool. Currently you can only write one line of text and it would be much more useful for notes and memos if there was a way to add multiple lines of text to one text box. 6. Please add a function to the Ruler tool to support more angles than just 45 degrees, I love the Ruler tool but it feels so restrictive the way it is right now and I would greatly enjoy using it for geometric art. Maybe there can be a way to edit it's setting like long pressing one of the other tools. Overall I think this is an lovely app and I will continue to support and give my recommendations and hopefully this review can help others as well.
Bluerobo123's Review of Tayasui Sketches ProReviewed on 3/28/18 1:31 PM
It gets kind of tiring to color a line art with a layer under it by hand, or by using the pen and not being able to stay in the lines. If you could add a magic wand, maybe you could make coloring for me or certain people easier because the magic wand lets you select a certain area and then you can draw or color inside it without leaving the lines.
theartworks's Review of Tayasui Sketches ProReviewed on 3/26/18 12:59 AM
I really adore this app because it’s worked really well for some of my projects, but since the last update I can’t get it to open. Right before it begins to load it crashes. I’ve tried restarting my phone but nothing’s working. I also went on the website but the instructions on how to upload the drawings onto my computer before deleting the app are not working. Please help.
Puppermints's Review of Tayasui Sketches ProReviewed on 3/24/18 8:55 AM
I've been using the app for awhile and I really like it but I wish there was flip option when you use the select tool. I also wish there was a shape too.
Arielle Ari's Review of Tayasui Sketches ProReviewed on 3/24/18 1:59 AM
I love this app so much. I’ve had it for a little under a year now and I’m still very pleased with it’s performance. The interface is neat looking and easy to navigate around and even with all of the useful tools, it’s not cluttered and it’s very organized, unlike other drawing apps. Though it’d be nice to include things such as: -A “protect Alpha layer” option (similar to what MediBang has) -The ability to rotate/change the size of a canvas -The ability to flip a layer vertically Even if it doesn’t have these features, it still is an amazing drawing app. Keep up the good work!
Bowtop's Review of Tayasui Sketches ProReviewed on 3/18/18 4:19 AM
This is a great app, but there are a few bugs and sometimes layers I’ve worked very h****** get deleted and I get very frustrated. One time, I couldn’t open the app and I had to delete everything and re-download the app. Please fix this. Thank you.

Hello, I really love this app and the features are amazing, I don't wanna sound rude but I would like the app to be able to allow me to rotate my drawing when I'm sketching and also allow me to make hallow circles and squares(this feature is used in the app Autodesk sketchbook). If you can plz add this feature into your app, it would make things easier.
sorry4ever's Review of Tayasui Sketches ProReviewed on 2/4/18 6:57 PM
Feb. 04, 2018 I deleted my old review and now I am giving a new one. I enjoy using the app because I like the way the results look. I have no bones to pick with any of the developers. I think that they created a beautiful app that is easy to use. Now for the negative parts... 1. The save feature messes up and I lose my work at times, but not always. 2. The automatic save produces blank photos before the actual photos. 3. The app does strange things at times for some odd reason. Well, I have no idea why this app is so unpredictable. I wish that it were more stable. I know that the developers do updates and bug fixes. But as much as things change, they seem to stay pretty much the same. In conclusion: I love the app, I just wish it worked better. Sorry 4 Ever.

whyareyoumakingmechooseanother's Review of Tayasui Sketches ProReviewed on 2/18/18 7:02 AM
I really like this app a lot especially when you can use layers in the pro app. There is a lot of different types of brushes and sizes. It has the ruler for straight or diagonal drawing, water color, and more. The only thing that its missing to me is the the shape section to make a perfect circle or square. I'm not a good drawer but adding this would benefit a lot of people (this shape is already in their other app: memeopad). I'm using the bamboo sketch pen ony iPhone 6 on this app. The pen have a slight delay but the sketch app have different various hand position (right, right hand upward, right hand downward, and vice versa). When using the pen, drawing on the edge of the phone is tricky, you would draw a shape and it would sometime skip toward the edge. Coloring the edge can be challenging unless you zoom in. Overall, my family enjoy this app and this is a good app on the go.

TheTimster2012's Review of Tayasui Sketches ProReviewed on 11/3/18 3:34 AM
Okay, so, let me start off by saying that Sketches is the greatest drawing app I’ve found. I absolutely love it! But the reason why I had to give it 4 stars is because seemingly whenever I draw, Sketches lags! Not the entire app, but the drawing tools! I try to draw a perfectly straight line and all of a sudden, either b******** circles appear, or the line gets crooked, and heart monitor looking on its own! It’s not too much of a problem for the first five minutes or so, but it’s FRUSTRATING AS HECK after you start getting tired of it. And also, the undo/redo buttons keep absolutely not working 😭The undo button undoes way to much and I lose something I drew! Please fix this, Sketches! I just want to draw! ☹️

Stephen879's Review of Tayasui Sketches ProReviewed on 10/24/18 1:19 AM
NOW THAT THERE IS a way of seeing it on a graph I can confirm that I spend most of my time lately with this app. It is not without a few annoying. Bugs. I find the layers feature far too complicated to use for my purposes but I can’t seem not to stumble over it at every turn. But inadvertently created layers can be erased What I hate most is when the screen freezes up its usually when I am making rapid changes that this happens and I have lost hours of work. But you have to set it to “auto save’ to avoid most catastrophes (check every now and again even if you think it’s on. There seems to be. A ghost in my machine). Otherwise., for variety off tools and for the sheer number of ways I can tweak those tools to nearly do all the things I could do with their analog counterparts, I give this app my highest possible recommendation. Unlike other competitors, some of which are too basic (no smudge?) or so complex I feel like I have to take a post-graduate course to figure out how to use, this app is mostly intuitive. I never reading instructions ], as is my stubborn way, until I was already quite comfortable using the app., doing so on the Tayasui website has helped me get even more out of it. I had to leave off a star because it is. Too easy to lose ones work. Other I could hardly imagine a more useful and beautifully designed tool or creative outlet. And it’s not expensive. I recommend the Pro version over the free if you are obstructing more serious or. Complex graphics or design systems or making art,
Sooze59's Review of Tayasui Sketches ProReviewed on 10/22/18 7:41 PM
Sketches works beautifully, even for this artist who is somewhat digitally challenged with drawing apps. A perfectly acceptable place for newbies and the highly experienced alike, especially for the price. Buy it and get going, and have fun
kingofzombies's Review of Tayasui Sketches ProReviewed on 10/22/18 4:49 PM
this app has a great brush engine, but the amateur hobby style UI makes it unusable for serious artists. please add a standard color picker, ability to zoom out from the image and normal image pasting abilities. i wish the UI was better because the watercolor brush is amazing

TJ sjb's Review of Tayasui Sketches ProReviewed on 10/11/18 3:03 PM
This app has a lot of potential but the price point is not justified. It is not user friendly. Would it have been that difficult to create a more user friendly interface for the basic functions in this app? Try to change the canvas from portrait to landscape and you’ll get what I’m talking about. Also, would it have been that difficult to create a manual explaining to new users how to use the app? If you have a question, you are directed to a page with cute little drawings showing you some finger gestures. I have used Procreate since it first came out and it is far superior. Its a shame since this app has potential. Maybe the creators of this app should sit their butts down and provide a clear, precise manual (or videos - not the s***** 31 second version they direct you to when you have a question) that allows the user to get into painting quickly. How about lesson 1 - “Setting up your canvas”.... At $5.99 its way overpriced....

Outfought's Review of Tayasui Sketches ProReviewed on 1/5/18 6:24 PM
I would change my rating to five stars if this app worked well with my stylus. I've followed all suggestions for getting it to work well. What happens is the app slows down so much that it becomes completely unusable with my Pogo Connect (first generation ) stylus. Otherwise it's a truly wonderful app.

SilverRater's Review of Tayasui Sketches ProReviewed on 1/29/18 11:33 AM
First off—this is a fantastic drawing app. The version on my older iPad gives you an option to keep tools hidden even when your stylus is not touching the screen; however, it does not have the screen recording option. The newer version has the screen recording option, but every time you lift the stylus, the tools reappear, ruining your recording! Please mirror the old “hide” functionality—it’ll work perfectly with recording. This is my only complaint; otherwise, great, intuitive drawing app!

Tedtoal's Review of Tayasui Sketches ProReviewed on 1/11/18 2:51 AM
I am not an artist but I want to try my hand at drawing. I’ve been playing around with the program to learn the tools. I really like it, it’s fun! I have the Apple Pencil and it is working great. It has taken me a while to figure out what to do to make the s***** get wider when you hold the pencil flatter - turns out that only works with a couple tips on a couple tools, which is ok. It crashed once when I was trying out editing the blended colors, but otherwise has been solid. One thing I don’t like is the large number of spelling, grammatical, and typo errors on the web site, it makes it seem unprofessional.
AaronD12's Review of Tayasui Sketches ProReviewed on 1/1/18 2:35 AM
I don’t have an artistic bone in my body. People look like stick figures. Houses look like they’re made from straws. I regularly get put down by little girls for my drawing inability. I do, however, use Photoshop and similar applications for image editing. This program does a very good job of allowing to edit images - so much that my wife gasped at how good this program allowed me to touch up some photographs. If you can draw, this is the program for you. If you need a good image editor, this is the program for you. In short, get this program.
