Starkly lacking in features
Frankly, this app is worth $1-2. The lack of basic functionality like geometric shapes, a fill bucket or any form of selection tool make this app only maringally more functional than a box of colored pencils and a pad of paper. If that's the level of functionality you're after, more power to ya. For those that are accustomed to desktop graphics applications, the absence of these basic tools will leave the app feeling crippled. I purchased this app expecting useful, high quality software from a company well known for its graphic arts applications, only to find I had wasted $6. Adobe throws salt on the wound by demanding an additional $1 to enable the app's only semi-advanced feature: layers. If you're looking for anything more than a digital pencil and paper, don't waste your money here. Sketchbook Pro is cheaper and provides all of the functionality of Ideas plus much, much more.

Would Rather Burn 6$
No shapes, No Line tool, No Fill Bucket, No option to import/edit Pictures. All it is for 6$, is a pencil tool, an eraser, and a hand that moves your image...nothing else. Did I mention you have to pay an ADDITIONAL 1$ for EACH layer? I feel cheated, and want a refund. Any drawing program is better than this, and most are 6$ cheaper.

Good start, needs work.
Clean design and well organized. Great response time when drawing on the iPad2. Layers should be included in the base price. Badly needs an eyedropper tool and the ability to create swatches/palettes from the draw view. Buy a stylus if you plan on using this heavily.

Like my title.. this app is awesome! It's my favorite drawing app. The zoom in feature let's you get things more precise. And when you do a basic doodle it has a smoothing feature which makes it look so much better its Perfect for your handwriting it will look more like your own writing. I would recommend it highly. Also a nice feature is the color matching tool to create color themes. You can take a photo and pick 5 colors in that shot you want an exact match of to paint with.

I feel so ripped off. I actually bought the layers because I wanted to use the eraser on the photo layer and add text over it. Well you CAN'T use eraser on photo layer and you CAN'T add text!!! Why does there screenshot show text? I want my money back.
