  • It might be too early to be disappointed

    By Filmmaker19
    But I had this app before and I don’t see the journal synced that I had published before. And then I went to try to get my journal book printed that I just created and either Moleskin doesn’t print out your books anymore or it didn’t get into my app because there was no place to upload it to be printed into a nice little book and that’s half the fun. I’ll re-rate this with a better rating if the thing works. I also couldn’t figure out how to create background colors for the pages.
  • You can draw anywhere

    By Eburkedain
    One of the reasons I love draw is that I don’t have to take out supplies to work. One of the problems that artists can have is that point between thinking about drawing and drawing itself when you are not in a situation where you can pull out supplies. With Draw, I can make art and other visual concepts anywhere: on the plane ( it doesn’t need internet), in a meeting, or on my morning commute.
  • Download sketches instead

    By Uncledavesbooks
    This app used to be so cool. With the interaction of other artists. Now I can’t even download my own sketches from this app. I wish they bring back the original paper
  • Used to be great

    By Wmw-r
    Like many other reviewers, I used to swear by this app and loved using it. It quickly became my favorite sketching app when I downloaded it on my iPad 2 all those days ago. Usually someone who thinks twice before making app and in app purchases, I gladly bought the pen and color palette set because I enjoyed it so much. It used to work seamlessly, syncing all my illustrations back-and-forth between devices so I could view them easily. And as a student with tons of anatomy diagrams, it was indispensable. Unfortunately, when I downloaded the app again on my new iPad this time , I was greeted with an offer to pay a yearly subscription for getting back all my hand drawn diagrams with the syncing feature made completely inaccessible until you cough up more money! Unbelievable. It’s a lesson learnt I guess, not to be too gullible in trusting companies who value their old customers so little.
  • This app... is AMAZING!!!

    By eevee1001
    It’s just like a sketch journal! It’s easy to draw in, I can play with my Drawings, and The coloring doesn’t go over the lines.

    My Paper app by 53 Is fun to use and worry free;
  • Not happy

    I’ve lost all of my previous notebooks with this update. I was an early supporter of Paper and purchased all the tools and now I find the app practically useless to use.
