Fantastic, will only be made better by future updates
The thing about drawing hands for storyboards, comics, illustration etc is that they need to be incredibly specific to the action and angle and lighting with which you're working. I think this app is a HUGE help for artists who are tired of avoiding the tough poses. There are features I'd love to see added in future updates like female hands and faces, different face weights and expressions, but what is present is already extensive. You have a lot of control with this app, and it is easy and fast to achieve desired results. I am looking forward to applying this to my work. Great job!

Pretty good
Only just downloaded it now, but from what I've tested out, this is a useful tool for artists who have trouble with hands and lighting faces. I'd like it if perhaps a hand that can be moved to create custom poses was added. In the future, it'd also be lovely to have full body models, too.

Great artists resource!
Not only can you rotate each hand model in all directions, you have a choice of 1, 2 or even 3 light sources that can also be rotated around the model. An invaluable tool to anyone that wants to or has to render hands on paper or in sculpture! With the addition of the head model, this tool has just doubled its usefulness! Thanks to the devs for making this!

Hey, let's support these guys! They're serious about this!
This is a very promising update. When I first bought Handy, I was a tad underwhelmed by the slapdash look and minimal amount of poses, several of which were pretty useless. I didn't feel ripped off because it worked very well, but I didn't think there would be any serious follow-up. So, I'm really happy to see an update with a lot of new, and useful, poses, the new 3D head, and other improvements, and a prominently displayed promise of more to come! It's hard to overestimate the convenience of a good collection of 3D hands, especially when they rotate in every possible direction and can be illuminated from all sides with multiple light sources, all very quick and easy. The new head works just as well. It would be great to see more 3D modeling apps available; let's make these guys super successful to encourage them and others to expand the possibilities.

Very handy
Freaking love it. So many key poses that I find myself needing to draw from various perspectives.

Great on iPhone, amazing on iPad!
This is a must have for any artist, and the iPad version lets you see the hand all big! Critics say "well I could just look at my own hand" --- but this app let's you rotate the hand into positions that would be impossible to reference your own. It's a lifesaver when you need the reference.

Cannot Sync after installing this app.
I actually rally like this app but after I installed it. I received this error message when I try to sync: "...iphone cannot be synced. The disk could not be read from or written to." It took me a few hours to figure this is what caused the problem. I almost did a restore on it. I hope they fix this problem.
