3/5 stars

Slow and needs some other features

Ideate is a great start. But my handwriting is terrible using my fingers! A way to add typed text would be useful. Other features I'd love to see include: more brushes, stamps (icons), layers, and a more responsive interface. Part of the reason my handwriting is so bad is because the app doesn't register changes quickly enough.

0/5 stars

Terrible performance

What good is a sketching app if you can't sketch? No excuse for this poor performance now that the iPad is available to developers.

0/5 stars


I am pretty good illustrator. This app needs so much work.
There is no control using fingertips, you can't see what you are doing. You can't pour color into a shape. There really needs to be an eraser. This is not a program I would recommend . I'm sorry I downloaded it. It should have been free. There is no instruction for it's intended use. I say it's useless in it's present incarnation.
Anyone who has used Illustrator or any other drawing program will also be DISAPPOINTED! Sorry I had to give it 1 star. It doesn't deserve it.
