One and a half thumbs 3/5
The application freezes a lot. Often, not filling in shapes that I draw. The app invasively suggests that I be online to gain full functionality, which is absurd. Other than that, it’s fun to use.
Not perfect, but close 5/5
Once you get past the adjustment of giving assignments in Adobe Illustrator (I cannot currently because we are distance-learning here in Prince George’s County, Maryland) this little program is pretty dope.
If the developers could come up with a way to incorporate the pen tool, even if it didn’t do curves like it’s big brother, it would really go a long way. If you could also select individual objects and resize them on a single layer, boy would THAT be fantastic… But, I understand it may not be possible in this Mobile environment. Pretty awesome work, Adobe Draw team!
Needs something 5/5
The app is amazing BUT it really needs a lasso tool.
1 problem 4/5
We need a eye dropper
DO NOT BUY THIS STUPID GARBAGE!! 1/5
I CAN NOT USE MY EMAILS THAT ARE VAILID BECAUSE APPARENTLY TO THIS TRASH THEY AREN’T!! I CANNOT DO ANYTHING THIS IS A TERRIBLE APP DO NOT BUY ITS STUPID AND ITS BROKEN JUST LIKE THE CREATORS THIS IS GARBAGE
Not good for importing to desktop 1/5
I just wrote a long review about this and it got deleted because my finger hit outside the review box!! Aggravating!!
To quickly cover it, I wanted to use this app as a way to draw fashion flats quickly at industry standards - making them in Adobe Illustrator as vectors. I quickly discovered I couldn’t import brushes I needed, or add textures! I decided to transfer them to desktop Illustrator to add details, but THEN discovered again that the desktop version registers each individual brush stroke made in Draw as a SHAPE, not a line. That alone makes it practically impossible to fix or add anything to the file without redrawing it on desktop anyways, so there’s no point in me using it.
I could just use a Surface Pro or Cintique to draw them in AI, but I don’t have either and would need a computer drawing tablet, which I do not use well. I prefer drawing on my iPad, and if this app had even just had an option for desktop AI to register the brush strokes as pen lines I would be able to get my work done at a much much quicker pace. Instead I’ve been using procreate, which is my usual art program anyways, but it does not do vector and I cannot always use it. Additionally, switching from procreate to Draw is an intense shift in functionality as Draw doesn’t even have a decent stabilization tool or shape adjustment option. Very inconvenient for people without good hand eye coordination to draw nice straight or curved lines.
Adding features like importing custom brushes and textures, more similarity to the desktop version, desktop AI registering brush strokes as lines and not shapes, better stabilization, etc. would be very helpful. Until then, it is almost useless to me.
Cool app! 4/5

Awesome and brings me joy but this is also a tiny warning for kids like me! So before u get this app just be warned u NEED A EMAIL account. For me this was not an issue lol 😂 but I know some kids don’t have a email account so I just wanted to say. But I have a given email account my parents gave me. Also another thing I would like to point out is that I had to lie about my age because I was born 2008 and when I put it in it said I was too young 😭 but another thing to watch out for it askes you for your first name, your last name, and your date of birth!!! This is unacceptable and I put a fake name and a fake date of birth cuz I didn’t want a stupid drawing app to know my personal info! Another thing is it askes you where u live! I think just asking for an email is enough! 😒 ugh anyways this app is the go too when I’m bored
Great but... 4/5
This is a great game but please put it yo where we can yake our discover or else PLZ tell me how to yake it off. Im 11 and my mom got this game for me but then i realized “how are we gonna take off discover?” Plz if you know how tell me how to take it off
Okay but could be better 3/5
By Blaze 💥
I like it but I also have a hard time using it on iPhone; I wish there was a way to optimize it for the phone as as the iPad’s.
I really want to like this. 3/5
Needs the ability to ignore your palm even if you aren't using a connected stylus. Pinch to zoom/rotate randomly stopped working, even after restarting. Transform all layers UI unresponsive.

Amazing app , wish if could everyone can use it Amazing app , wish if could everyone can use it
Very difficult to use 1/5
By Army pie
When first got this app I thought wow this is the app of my dreams well I was very wrong the first problem is that I has no Bucket and my art look like trash with out a background the second problem is that there are no good brushes but that all I need to say. If you are reading this you should go try porceaet it is a awesome app
Best app 5/5
Feels like a premium app very easy to use
Um no 2/5
You can’t tell me i can’t create an account because I’m not allowed in. Oh you want my social security number and my credit card number how about my IP address if you do some people use this app to practice oh and I’m just an innocent 10 year old who wants to practice well... back to the deleting board ugh apps are so much scams and another thing is when I was in the process putting in my password (enter a password that is not common I had to sit for 40 GOTDAMN minutes to do that and after all that I CANT GET IN if you want to make this app better remove that uncommon password feature so this app can be better for new users so they don’t have to sit down at a GOTDAMN table for 40 minutes trying to put in they’re password like they say you learn from mistakes
Must create account to use app 1/5
Must create account to use the app. In other words, you must give them personal information to even try the app. Adobe was never my favorite. Year after year it has only gotten worse.
parece simple pero con la práctica descubres muchas funciones
@ times I can’t fill in or erase correctly
Improve file management 5/5
Okay, needs fixing. 3/5
While this app started off great, it quickly became clear to me there were many problems. It freezes an awful lot, and there’s no fade, watercolor, or any way to make smooth or real looking shadows or blends. The paint bucket tool is broken, and whatever your trying to fill will have a small but very noticeable uncolored ring around the edges.
Saving and searching a file between Mac and iPad is impossible! 3/5
Saving and searching a file between Mac and iPad is impossible!
This is just a GREAT app!! 5/5
By Eden A. Elliott
This app is so useful and fun for projects. It is great for letting your drawings be smooth and creative. I really like the feature where you get to use shapes for drawing. It really helps when drawing heads. I really recommend this drawing app.
It’s cool but I kinda wish there were more tutorials 4/5
Uhhhh what the title said
no pen tool... 3/5
it could be better. i can’t believe you can’t edit your line points with pen tool? currently clip studio paint has better vector line tools, sad. pen tool is literally the app logo and it’s not here lol
By Taya Homsana
Wish there were blending
Extremely difficult to use 1/5
Just spend the few extra bucks and buy Procreate!
One problem only 3/5
By Big daddy xxxx
I noticed when opening up an image on my Android app that I was working on my iPad version is considered to be a later version, where it is no longer able to open the image and continue to edit. I only happen to have one of the other as my iPad has a pen for sketching and my phone doesn’t so just for preference,is their any way around it?
Destroyed all my work 1/5
By Zach Toups
This is a pretty cute art app, but after not using for a bit, I was prompted to sign in. Now all my drawings are gone.
Always showing 4/5
Hi you never have it so when I go in the app an I will not see an ad for Fresco.🤬 I hate it!!!
the brush options are a bit one-note
I want a vector pen! 1/5
Calling this the app version of adobe illustrator is a joke. I want a real pen tool with gradients. I love adobe products and use them everyday but when it comes to apps they are behind. If you need a vector app, try Vectornator. It’s not as good as the real illustrator software but it’s better than this app!
Love it 5/5
Works great and super responsive
No Pen tool!!! 1/5
I’ve used illustrator since version 10 on a 1st gen iMac. The only reason I downloaded this app was for the pen tool which, sadly, isn’t included. For free-form sketching I prefer other apps or even photoshop. However I can see how being able to export vector is a plus.
The fact that kids can’t draw 1/5
im a child and I don’t know any of the passwords to my family’s accounts and I needed a good drawing app
its a fantastic sail into the sun 5/5
By ~~~Michael Wood~~~
i guess they are killing this app. however dont let that stop you, they were almost there in creating the best mobile illustration and drawing app.
with even any effort this could have truly changed how humans create. the new app is fine but this has professionalism. this you can rely on.
there are however many things lacking. they bet on ppl wanting to keep the ipad > mac workflow and i know i want no such thing.
that said. its simplicity is what makes it worth a creative cloud sub. it just works. shapes. your pencil. there are no complaints here. adobe is pro here.
if anyone is listening
new color wheel
free-flow color wheel
rendering. push the new ipad pro.
tbqh the whole thing needs an update but at the same time what it needs is a final major refinement.
either way. adobe does this best. this app is the best.
No pen tool? Classic Adobe 1/5
The staple of Illustrator is the pen tool. The pen icon is literally in the app’s logo and is no where to be seen. The fact that Adobe has yet to incorporate the pen tool into this app makes zero sense. It makes this app almost useless and no more than Adobe Sketch with vector output, which isn’t all that useful. The sketching features are cool, but miss the target and entire purpose of a vector editing program.
I understand that Adobe has taken a different approach than simply recreating the Illustrator desktop app in a simplified form, but that’s what we want! We want a simplified, streamlined version of the desktop app on a mobile device. Whatever this app is, ain’t it.
Best free drawing app! 5/5
Really enjoy practicing drawing
Wont export 2/5
After periodic attempts to use this program, It’s pretty useless. The program itself is very useful, but there’s only one way to export your vector data out, to Illustrator (remote). Originally, this feature did work, but it didn’t take long for the export option to stop working completely. I’ve wrangled with the few suggested solutions online.. nothing. I was even contracted a long-term job based off of using Draw, but because of these issues I wasn’t able to take the work.
As a muralist and graphic designer... 5/5
It’s amazing but just a one thing 5/5
I love this app and its amazing but whenever I’m using the taper brush it sometimes goes to the eraser and I erase some stuff but overall it’s a amazing app
Good app! 4/5
This app is great for beginners! I have watched a few YouTube videos trying cheap drawing apps, and they don’t think it’s very good. But it’s really nice for beginners or people who want to try out drawing virtually just to see if they like it. Honesty I think this app is really great considering the cheap price.
Need more tools- Smoothing tool 2/5
By Anthem's mom
So far this ap is fun, but it needs a smoothing tool. And more vector options. . Also, this review is in white text and I can’t read it. So far this ap is buggy. Is reminds me of cs2.
It is ok I guess 3/5
By Apollo Knight
So idk if it’s just my device but any adobe apps just glitch all
the time it’s kinda annoying but other than that it’s pretty good
And I recommend it.
Adobe Draw... 5/5

I couldn’t even sign up 1/5

I couldnt even sign up
it’s a nice app but.. 5/5
By levi <3
but it would be better on an ipad or something since it’s bigger, your phone works too it’s just small for me, you know?
Amazing! But... 4/5
I love this app so much!!! I use it for so many drawings, and I just love it. My only complaint is that it needs a blending tool SO BADLY!!! If you make that, then this would be the perfect app!!
