Should be 5 stars but...
First off, let me say that this is an amazing app and I use it all the time! The ability to port out as a PDF vector file is great and allows you to access it both through Photoshop and Illustrator on your main computer. Makes for a great way to do foreground characters and composite them into more elaborate backgrounds later. I do have a couple of minor gripes, however... 1. Biggest and most important to me is the lack of native integration with other adobe products. You can't, for example, open the transparent, layered ideas file in, say, photoshop touch and the export as PDF function also limits the layering and other factors in other adobe programs. Importing it into Illustrator, for example, basically gives you EVERY stroke as a separate vector, which can get downright messy if you don't plan ahead. 2. Why oh why doesn't a vector based program actually allow you to create vectors? I'm talking about basic shapes and straight lines! While I love being able to sketch things and have them become rough edged vectors, sometimes I want hard edged lines and shapes. 3. Can you please allow us to change the angle of the pen brush tool? I love using that to ink characters, but the default angle of the pen can sometimes mean you have a heavy line where you'd much rather have a thin one, or vice versa. That would make a darn nice addition to the program. There would be a fourth, but Adobe has already stated they're working on making the smoothing function a definable variable, so YAY! Despite these gripes, I still love the program and use it nearly everyday! It's just enough to keep it from being a 5 star app.

Outstanding
Everything from the layers to the different tools makes this an valuable art tool on iOS. However, there should be an option to make a project have a specific size, and so it shows the whole photo when saved to the camera roll, not just what is on the screen. Other than that, this app is perfect.

I love this app
It's really great. With a little practice, I'm hoping to go completely paperless with this as the first stage of my process. I love that I can open ideas files in CS6. I agree, though, that it would be the ultimate drawing app on the iPad if it had shapes. I'd be happy with just the basics, and lines. Still a great app though.

Great app
I love this app in every way except for the fact that I can only export PDF. Would love to be able to export PSD or AI.

Pen tool
Pleas fix the brush speed as well, it used to be so smooth and responsive but now it seems as if the lines I draw grow slowly onto the screen like vines. Please just bring back the responsive brushes/pen tool!!
