User reviews of ArtFlow • Tablet Sketchbook
Nice app. I' think it does need better resolution when zooming in, though.

Lasso tool PLEASE! I could not believe this amazing app did not have any kind of selection tool. Very disappointing. I love almost everything else about it. Please add a lasso/selection tool with copy and paste, scale, rotation, etc. AND maybe onion skinning against other images or imports. Thanks devs!

Great app, awesome developer, phenomenal customer support I had a small issue with my pro license not being recognized after several updates. I contacted Amazon for the developer information. I revived a reply within 30 minutes. The solution was to give me a promo code for Google Play license version. It never was a problem with the app. It was a problem with Amazons build kit. This replaced Autodesk Sketchbook Pro some time ago as my go to mobile artwork platform for most applications. Even if there is a feature in Sketchbook that I need, I generally do the mockup here and take it to the furthest stage I can before saving as a .png and importing. Great app, great developer. For a serious amateur or pro artist ArtFlow is a must. Spend the $4.99 for the pro license... you'll be glad you did. I will gladly buy anything that they put out. They took on the big boys at Autodesk and beat them at their own game. Keep up the good work. Remember everyone, most of your app developers are either one person or a small company that started as one person. They usually are working at least one full time job, and then creating masterpieces of the digital age. Support your developers. They enrich your lives
