Limited, far too expensive
This app basically does one thing, and not particularly well - let you sketch in vector format. Many things you'd expect from a basic art app are not here and you'll be frustrated with the limitations after a short time. For example, you can't move your illustrations around on the canvas after they're painted! You have to erase and redraw it. Inkpad destroys this app and it's a lot cheaper! In fact I don't think I've ever felt more ripped off with an app purchase than I did after buying this app with the layers addon for 11 bucks total, and then realizing Inkpad is far better at only 3 bucks. Please learn from my mistake!

Buy layers?
So you outlay $9.99 for this app when other similar ones are going for about $5.00 right? Then find out that layers are a cost add-on? Adobe you should be embarrassed. That is a real lame and hack move. I recommend Procreate or Sketchbook Express. They are cheaper, with more functionality and they come standard with layers. Adobe, your greed is obvious and I'm disgusted. Thankfully, iPad and technology like it, level the playing field, and corporate gouging and nonsense like this make it easier to go elsewhere and find better products from better companies.

Love this app, but the price is terrible
I bought this app in the first week that I had my iPad 3G, it wasn't $10 back then. Furthermore, the one in-app-purchase of layers for an additional dollar is ridiculous, however necessary if you want to remain functional. Lower the price and I'll raise my review. Even at $5 I'd give this app five stars, but not until then.

The layers are worth it.
I love the simplicity of this app. It is very useful for quick whiteboard-type sketches with a broad range of colors and brush widths. Once I bought the layers feature it was even better. I would like to see a merge down feature.

Good app for a great price
Drawing is made fun and easy with this app, but changes can be made. Firstly, using the eraser tool, you should be able to draw a circle with the eraser, press inside the circle, and erase all the content in the circle. It makes erasing a lot easier. Also other tools that many have suggested would be great!
