Love this App, AND, I think many miss the point...
First, This App is great. Fantastic way to trace a jpg into a vector. Using a mouse or trying to Auto lasso and correct, pain in the butt. And the old Bamboo style tablets, awful, I need to see where my hand is in relation to the work in this kind of direct context. Much more natural. **And to the 5 color guy, did you even USE this app? There’s a whole rainbow pal.*** Yes, the app is very limited, but only because the concepts has me jazzed and I want to do everything with it. As far as the "In App" purchase. I dig the concept. I would have just bought the whole thing off the bat, but if someone doesn't want that function, letting them save a buck is cool. I wish Office was like that, I don't use 85% of what that suite can do, So on an "In Program Purchase" basis; I figure I would have knocked that one down about $400 bucks! :o) I cannot wait to see where the rest of this is going with Adobe, but count me In! Below is my general rant on this whole set of programs, and why anyone who is in the field should ignore most negative reviews: I can't help but think of Solitaire when I see these apps. And that no one seems to get it. Maybe I'm wrong but this, along with the other new "Companion" apps, seems to be more about practice than craft. It looks like Adobe is blazing some amazing trails just over the horizon, and this sort of app is to get us ready for it. The tablet is about to change how digital design happens, and we need to adjust our brains and hands to get ready for it. When Microsoft came out with Windows, someone realized that people had a very hard time adjusting to this Mouse thing. Looking at a screen, but shifting a pointer around with a box next to your keyboard. It was tricky and very frustrating for a lot of people, could have killed the OS, or at least the peripheral. But, someone came up with the idea for Solitaire. Give the folks a game to play with this new mouse thing, let them practice in a fun way rather than with the stress of tasks and deadlines smashing into their learning curve. And here we are today, moussing away like pro’s. And to anyone complaining about the price…Really? This is software that runs several hundred to several thousand dollars per version, and 2 or 10 bucks is a problem? For one; that’s a latte. And for two; If you’re in the business of professional design, this is a very minor expense, up there with paperclips, and if you’re an amateur or hobbyist (I’m slightly lower than either), don’t complain about the cost of the big boy toys, they let anyone buy them, but they are not supposed to be of great value to you if they are not how you make your money. Pretty sure a Racecar costs a lot more than my Toyota, but I don’t think I would complain about that fact if I decided I wanted one to drive around town in.

Not worth $5
From the pictures it looks like a cool app, and it is. Even the fact that it's very simple isn't too bad. However the fact that you have to buy the ability to use more than one layer is total bs. And the fact that it has to be purchased on the iPhone, iPod and iPad SEPARATELY is ridiculous. This app is UNIVERSAL. Something this simple should come with the layers for free, especially with that price. Also the ability to merge layers would be great.

Pretty awesome
Really enjoying this app. I've been using it for a few months now and I can't really say anything negative about it aside from the fact that I wish it had some form of text function. This app functions smoothly and the interface just makes sense.

Stupendous at what it is supposed to do.
This app is probably one of my favorites. The interface is super clean, efficient, and intuitive to anyone familiar to Photoshop on the desktop. It's not a painting app. It's not a vector creation app. This app is designed to allow you to quickly capture ideas (whoa, it's like they named it that INTENTIONALLY) on the go. And it does that excellently. On my iPad 2, there is NO lag or latency when zooming, panning, or painting. The color/opacity/brush size buttons are all right next to each other, allowing for extremely fast changes. The ability to hide the sidebar is much appreciated, and the controls never feel too far away when it is. The interface never hangs, even with dozens of apps in the multitasking tray. All in all, it's both well built and well thought out. I can't really say enough nice things about this app. This is one of the few apps that I use where I'm not constantly wishing for any features or changes while I'm using it. Yes, it could use an eyedropper (pretty badly, actually). But, hey, that's what the upcoming Photoshop Touch is for, right? Other reviewers seem to think that this app is intended for much more than what it is. It's not a professional grade image editor--it's a stripped-down digital sketchbook at best. Sure, it's a little sleazy to use completely unrealistic screenshots to lure you in, but that's what businesses do. Sure, it's a tad bit shady to make you buy the layers feature (I consider the app to be $7 instead of $6. That feature should come bundled, even if the app's price is raised). But that's just how it is, and people should stop complaining. Because this is a fricking awesome app that is an absolute breeze and pleasure to use.

Needs real color picker
I am a big fan of adobe photoshop, so I had high hopes for adobe ideas. I am very disappointed with this product. It dose less than other drawing apps that I purchased recently. I'm upset that I had to pay for layers, when other apps include layers and much more. It is sad but, I have pretty much abandoned this app since I installed it at the same time as the procreate app and I use procreate even less since I bought the sketch club app recently. Adobe, if you're listening, please add a real color picker instead of the weird one you have bundled. I have three other art apps that have a color picker that allows you to just press and hold to create a ring of color and make it your current color. The only good thing I have to say is that the line smoothing was done well, but, I would like some more options. Also, who ever enables pressure sensitivity for iPad, I will win my loyalty and my dollar. Apps I recommend more than adobe ideas: Procreate Sketch club

Great app!
Everything is as expected. Maybe a little pricey, but just about worth it. Only minor suggestion is labels or titles for ideas, to differentiate duplicated ideas. Otherwise great app!
