Love it! 5/5
Great app for fashion illustrations and mood boards! Super cool to use with my Apple Pencil! Love the fact that it’s free as well! 👍🏾
I wish it was great 2/5
I regret this app is just a doodling app and not much more.
As an illustrator I love the Kyle brushes (that I already have on my desktop) but the only professional thing i can do with Sketch is just that, sketch for clients on the go. And I could as well have a $5 sketchbook and take a picture with my phone.
Will you at any point enable 300dpi and/or the capability to import a document in its full size?
Best drawing app 5/5
By Mshindo I.
This app makes portability a breeze and the cloud integration in addition to the ease in which files are exchanged with your Mac puts adobe sketch at the top of my mobile pipeline.
Quick, easy and fun!
Most realistic drawing app 5/5
Smooth. Easy. Works. Looks great.
here here 1/5
rip adobe, so many other fine art/photo apps, at reasonable prices, with NO monthly fees, you were once good, but alas you just want to empty bank accounts
Do I need to register? 2/5
By Robert Tee
Just downloaded this app. Unable to use unless I provide my name, birth date, and agree to receive email from Adobe. Is it not possible to simply use this app for the occasional fun of casual sketching without providing this information?
This works extremely well and is an incredibly unique drawing and sketching app that provides much needed views and outlooks on drawing styles.
RIP Adobe 1/5
Adobe’s creative ecosystem makes it almost impossible to be creative without signing up, signing in, digging into your bank account.... monthly, working without a network connection and paying for another upgrade to the application. I’ve been working with Apple products since 1989 and I consider myself to be fairly tech oriented. I bought an iPad Pro specifically to work with lightroom and other Adobe products. Honestly, I can’t get half of their products to work anymore. Unless you are some kind of Adobe fan boy, you will realize that there are other products out there that far surpass the performance and price of most Adobe products. Save the monthly fees and your sanity from trying to get this bloatware to operate as you would expect and FIND ANOTHER WAY. Adobe was is king once upon a time but all empires eventually collapse. Adobe is more interested in connecting to your bank account for its monthly extraction than it is interested in creating a product that are actually useful. I don’t want your slow cloud, I don’t want to be stressed out with my machine can’t remember my Adobe ID so that I can use your app, I don’t want another monthly fee so that the application that I already purchased will do what it should already do. Skip this product and go give your money to a developer who will actually make your creative experience seamless and enjoyable. Like Procreate. Now I’m gonna go delete all of adobes applications off of my iPad Pro and I will never look back.
Very Nice 👌 3/5
Easy to use and figure out except for inserting images but I may just be stupid I can’t find a way but over all it is pretty good so yeah... I have nothing else to say why are you still reading this and why am I still writing? Sorry for my lack of proper sentences and bad spelling/grammar
Already using Procreate 1/5
By Adam Srxghu
Sorry but I have to work with my PS in order to work with this. I don’t like having to go back and forth between PS on my computer and Sketch on my iPad.
Nearly perfect drawing app 5/5
I think it’s safe to say that most graphic work will be done on touch screen in the future. Adobe takes this prediction seriously with their Sketch App. Great brushes (although more would be better), functionality is great, but I’d like to see more of that as well. I’d like to see the addition of a select tool as well as more ability to alter imported images.
Over all a very solid app.
We Want Brushes!!!! 5/5
Just a couple more brushes(including the fill tool), the free transform tool to let me warp my layers, and I think this app would be just perfect. Amazing app guys!!
Update: well, you guys did it. Satisfied as I am, I say this is the best app for drawing. Huzzaaa
Update 2: maybe a storyboard template? I may be asking for a bit too much, but the program feels great for doing storyboarding.
It is pleasant but needs a positionable mask shield 5/5
By Mr. Smith Goesto Washington
For people who shade and need districted blocking
Easy for concepting 5/5
As an art director, it has gotten so east to use, plus my kids can explore their creativity👍
I hate it 1/5
I hate it it makes no sense why don’t are email has to be are name???? And it’s so confusing DON’T GET THIS APP!!!
This is something that I've experienced with with a few apps and has never ceased to amaze me. The app clearly states on the app store that it is for ages 4+, and being older than 4 years, I obviously decide to download it. I sign up, but woopty-doo, access denied. Why? Because it states that the app is for everyone 13+. Please fix this.
The Adobe apps are limited 2 say the least... 2/5
By frostbite films
... I know mobile apps can only go so far, but the clumsiness and clunky way you are forced to use fingers vs Apple Pencil (looking at you, @Apple ) so now that I had the time to play around I came to this conclusion:
1) The apps did surprise me with what they could do even with the limitations; however I am a CC subscriber and I cant imagine the confusion of some things missing for those who don’t. Even with the added functionality via my subscription that brings me to-
2) If you have a ton of idle time and you want to keep your files in progress on your desktop handy to make quick changes or test things out then the Photoshop-based ones are...ok. I just finished doing a simple sky replacement and I spent 2.5 hours on it ON THE PHONE- and yes I am glad I can save it to Photoshop or Creative Cloud to finish later, there was still so much I saw you were SUPPOSED to be able to do in the app but, like I mentioned at the start, precise ANYTHING is so tedious and brain boilingly cumbersome when the “magic select” tool (which IS awesome) leaves just those itty bitty pieces you have to fix and there’s just no help for it, I could only clean up with “feather” or the u explained versions of “edge” with feather, and these other weird ones I don’t get.
So yes I have avoided much use of the Adobe iOS “suite” from fear of functionality loss - I wouldn’t recommend it for someone like me, being a ocd perfectionist and get stuck insisting you have to just get that ONNNNNEEEE edge... But I get the idea and I am gonna see how the apps actually integrate to the Desktop suite.
**Note: I am sorry I had to take a point off tho, because of Adobe’s influence they need to lean on Apple to hurry already with the Pencil working with my 8plus; there is no reason NOT to do this because people are still going to buy the iPad Pros but for quick sessions or fixes on the subway or at lunch or at home if you only have access to CC at work, the portability is key and lack of a precise tool is the only thing I can see raising the current apps/tools to the next level.
So because no Pencil, I had to dock a star. Sorry! But please PLEASE somebody tell Cook most people don’t want a phone as yet another addition to what is already overinflated cell plan prices, but if they suddenly were able to sell 5 million more @ApplePencils (maybe have a refurbished sale for a initial lower price..?) then the more frugal and USEFUL product would be flying off the shelves like a scene from Poltergeist!
Requires signup 1/5
They don’t mention it requires you to sign up so they can use your personal info!
Great but, 4/5
As an amateur artist I am loving this but there are some things that should be in this app for example a duplicate button, more brushes (not much of a problem). I’m having some trouble with using the app, when I make a line sometimes it makes dots instead of a line or it just doesn’t make any lines at all. overall this is a great app for beginners. 😃 (to developers, I read your response) unfortunately I am unable to give you feedback through the app. I will instead watch a YouTube video on duplication. Thank you for both responding to me and telling me how to clear up the matter. 😃😃
Amazing app but... 3/5
The inability to use your creations on other platforms or communicate with other adobe programs is mind numbing
Highly impressed 5/5
I have most, if not all, of the drawing apps for iPad and this app has quickly become my favorite.
Great app 4/5
By Shawn Brook Williams
GREAT drawing app!
It’s trickier than it should be to extract a PSD.
Apprehensive, but I'll try it 3/5
While most of the reviews that I've read or favorable, I hope the limitations of my software will not prevent my enjoyment of using this app. What I mean is that I have a MacBookPro from 2011 and iMac from 2009. Because of my finances, and that I already own full versions of Creative Suite Master Collection 3, 4 and 5. The main functionalities of photoshop are the same with all versions, just new bells and whistles to simplify the processes have developed. And with my ownership of these software packages, I'm in no position to donate them to the Smithsonian, and I can't afford $50 a month for a perpetual subscription for Creative Cloud.
That in turn, I realize I'll only be able to go up to, maybe Yosemite or El Capitan on my Macs and still run CS5. (Is that correct, Adobe?)
That means that with Sketch, I wont be able to bring it into CS Photoshop on my Mac. However I do have the basic CC on iPhone. But is that have the features on it to bring "Sketch" files into photoshop cc for my iPhone.
I wish there was a website that makes it easy to find compatibilities between application versions and your Mac and it's OS.
Such as what happened when I upgraded iOS 10 and to my chagrin, could not sync up my iPhone to iTunes. Then I had to obtain and install OS 10.9 Mavericks.- but still can't run iPhoto (or photos). That means I have to now install Yosemite.
The workaround is google photos. I like it, but what happens when Yosemite is installed and photos is nor the app? What happens to my google photos from the last 2 years?
Tough to keep up with all this, but I can use the help to see if sketch is still worthwhile.
Way better! 5/5
By Rexy bobs
Love the new ‘paint on layer’ feature and brushes. Brought over some classic ps brushes through cc cloud too.
I want a brush that doesn’t continue to build value if you don’t pick up the pencil. Keep improving please!

Only if they added an Keyboard to type on !!!!!
App is amazing, just things lacking 3/5
By an artists that loves to test
I really love how I’m able to import custom made brushes from my laptop using creative cloud. The app replicates the brushes exactly like how I would use it on my laptop. I do wish you could be able to import back a psd file to the app but since that isn’t available yet, I would have to work on other apps instead for that feature. It feels limiting since you can’t bring your work with you on mobile. The response is amazing, but sometimes when I’m working on larger canvases, that’s when it lags.
Some things I’ve noticed I keep looking for that could have probably made the app more efficient :
- ability to import back psd files ( if you can export, then why can’t you import back?)
- clipping layers
- fill bucket tool
- selection or lasso tool
- copy, paste, cut
I have other ones to mention, but I think those are usually the ones I keep looking for. Basic tools.
Really need selection tool 4/5
By Mat 9038452
Hi, it’s a great app! But If I can mask or draw within a selected area, I’ll be able to draw like what I did with Photoshop. It’s a way to get clean outlines. Thank you!
Amazing app 5/5
I love this app it is great! If you want to make some good art this will definitely help believe me there are so many wonderful things if you download the app
Problems with exporting files 3/5
I love the drawing program part of it, but when I try to export, it often spools out and doesn’t upload.
By Mel stokes
Does exactly what I need it to do
It’s Amazing 5/5
I think it’s amazing how I can do whatever i want. Instead of having a restriction from certain things, as I’ve seen in different apps.
Paper color 5/5
I love this app, I love that I can import new brush tools and expand my brush tools as I’m inspired. It has great functions and is easy to use. I need to dink with it more as I can’t figure out how to change the paper color. It is off white rather than a nice bright white. Please fix this !! :)
This game is so cool. My friend introduced it to me and I love it!!! Thx bestie!!
I’ve really just begun using this~ it has really been coming in handy with my designs that I am applying to clothing* looking forward to using much more~
Nice selection and great app! 3/5
Good amount of brushes to choose from. Easy to share creations. Ability to store creations in the cloud. Not good for phones/smaller screens. No text box.
Amazing application:room for improvement 4/5
This app is truly amazing, what surprises me is its free. However there is room for improvement, i.e. add a copy paste select feature, although you can duplicate layers, its not the same.
Wonderfull, but could use a few features 4/5
The app might have this, but I wish that there was the option to move shapes by selecting them.
Adobe sketch the best 5/5
By Danielle Kight
The best sketch app. I love the integration with the adobe cloud. I've created so many beautiful creations with this app.

Amazing app 5/5
Well worth the download
By This app is lifeee :) :)
The app crashes every stroke of the brush. Giving up on this.
Jumping juju beans!!!!!! 5/5

For professional, creative, visual and casual drawing 5/5
Honestly this is the best application where you can enhance, create, design and Bring your innovative art pieces to life. So far the best app for sketching and editing on the iPad Pro!
Simply Perfect 5/5
Definitely the best free sketching app. Every serious artist should have this one!
Can’t open Non-Native PSD files. 3/5
While this app in general is absolutely fantastic it doesn’t work well with the other adobe apps. You can import files from Creative Cloud, you can open psd files that did not start in Adobe Sketch despite being able to save Sketch’s files to psd. So if you wanted to move from your laptop to your iPad you could not and if you saved it from your laptop and try to open it back up in Sketch you could not.
I would honestly give this a lower rating if it weren’t for the fact the user friendliness and other features were not amazing. It’s sad to see that other creators drawing apps can not only save in psd, open it, interact with adobe’s creative cloud and still offer all of sketch's features and more baffles me. I would love to continue using this app but the inability to crossover makes it a no go for me at the moment.
