I like the app the only this is that when I try to add a picture over another it logs me out the app.

I’m literally having a meltdown because of this

CREATORS!!!!!!!!! on

I was on procreate and didn’t notice that my eraser was on and set to 100%. I spent 3 days working on this project and it vanished. I tried everything! I tried undoing, but it only changed the layer. I tried getting a backup, but it didn’t work, so now I have to recreate this whole freaking project! Please fix this ASAP! If you don’t, I’ll sue! See you in court!

A simple undo and redo button could make a world of difference.

Not worth anything

I cant see my self on

I bought this app thinking it was a normal procreate, but then I realized I wasted four dollars because it wasn’t normal procreate I thought it was but for cheaper I want my money back or at least a refund.

I'm going to be honest, this app is really fun and exciting to use, but if you want to fill the background, you have to fill the whole entire thing instead of filling one half pink and the other purple. You can't do that on this app.

Not beginner friendly

J_Pearl on

Although the price is fine, I can’t seem to find anywhere on the app where there’s a tutorial. I am unable to export photos and can only do screenshots after sampling. There doesn’t seem to be any explanation anywhere on how to actually use the app. i’m pretty much left to fend for myself.

Good app but…

Good app but there needs to be a redo undo button

I’m so tired of the app shutting off every single time I try to import images…

bahsdee on

I just wish there could be a new update to fix the app. It always shuts down for me anytime I import an image or try to move things around.

App works fine after downloading it again

Gameslover69420 on

My first review of this was a 3* review and that was because the app was not working and wouldn’t let me draw anything. But after I downloaded it and redownloaded it, it was working just fine.

how do i undo stuff

Jazzy mico on
