I’ve had this app for years and it’s by far the best drawing app I’ve used, but ever since the new pro app came out, this one has been crashing and deleting my work every few minutes. I really don’t want to have to find a new one, but I’m not paying $12 for a whole new app when I already paid for this one and it’s a great app otherwise. Please fix these crashes!

I used this app on various iPads for quite awhile, and I am consistently very satisfied; it is a powerful, free “Photoshop for the Amateur,” and its performance as a touchscreen image editing solution is worthy of distinction. ArtStudio is undoubtedly my “go-to” app for free, easy, and fundamentally comprehensive graphic design on the iPad.

So the app overall is amazing but the downside about it is the free transform and moving like ps that’s all I need for my yt

I used this app for years to draw, but recently, I have had issues where it would crash every minute while I’m drawing. I try to save often while drawing, but as the app kept crashing, the files would become corrupted, and I can no longer access it. It is infuriating when hours of work is suddenly wasted because of a now dysfunctional app. Unless the developers have abandoned this app and are focusing on the Pro version, a fix for this serious issue is needed immediately. Until then, I strongly suggest that everyone avoid this app. I myself refuse to use it any longer. Trying to draw with it is not worth the frustration.

I love this app. It’s one of the few I found that has a selection tool and wand like Photoshop and let’s you edit and transform the selection without having to create a new layer. It has masking layers, cloud and render special effects, and I love being able to switch and sample colors just by holding my finger down for a few seconds. It looks like we can create our own custom brushes, too. There are a lot of features I haven’t used yet since I used the free version of the app with its three layers and small canvas size for three years. I felt it was worth buying the upgrade and I don’t regret a penny. :) Now on to the bug report. Since I installed the latest update (January 2019) I’ve been having lagging problems (I bought extra icloud storage so that should not be a problem). The worst bug is the swatch that previews the size and shape of a tool. It has been freezing up even after I make my selection and staying on my screen, hiding my drawing. I’ve had to stop working five times and force close the app to get the previewer to go away, since leaving the app is not enough to unfreeze it. I see you’ve worked on fixing that glitch before, so if you can fix it again, that’d be awesome. :) Thanks!

The sensitivity of the pen is awesome... As a cartoonist, tapered lines are important, and this app gets it right every time. Bravo!

I’ve had this app for a while and it’s great but it crashes regularly and loses all of my work. I have to make sure i continually save it but it still crashes unexpectedly and i inevitably lose my pics. It’s really frustrating. Please fix this! :(

UPDATE: As of April, 2019, this is still my most indispensible app. It's a necessity. In fact, I've come back to it after using their Pro version because when cropping older screenshots, this app correctly exports the NEW image with the NEW current date. The Pro version hasn't been doing that, to my dismay, and has left the bottom of my camera roll in a jumbled mess of old dates. So I've switched back to this app, and I'm grateful it's here!!! It's perfect for my needs 😍 PREVIOUS REVIEW: Finally, after working on a project in four other apps, and finding that what I wanted to do was impossible for me in those apps, I found ArtStudio!!! I was able to learn enough about the app to complete my complex project in about an hour, right off the bat. Funny thing was, even my existing Photoshop app couldn't seem to do what I needed, near as I could tell. So I recommend this over even Photoshop, for those of you with an iPad. Plus, you don't have to have any special ID (good grief) or use any "clouds" (which I refuse to do). This app is a lot of fun, allows lots of layers, and has a full Menu Bar that I love. My best app purchase so far!

I wrote a very angry and unflattering review a few hours earlier, under the misapprehension that my original app had been hijacked with an inferior “light“ version. Since, I’ve realized that a separate, inferior version of the app was also installed recently, (although how why and when, I neither know nor remember) and that the app that I paid for years ago is still functioning beautifully. My apologies to the developers for my mistake, and erroneous public characterization; all evidence shows that they are honest businessman, and excellent at their craft. If I seemed angry, it was only because I thought a very wonderful and crucial tool had been stolen from me – just when I was really starting to find a use for it. To my experience, Art Studio is as high-quality a drawing app as you can get on an iPad/iPhone. Thanks for your very excellent work.
