I’ve been so so happy with this for a whole year now, I used it for desktop before getting an iPad and the transition was seamless (other than a few file sharing hiccups) This new update though... you made it hard to access my files and the new look... OUCH! It literally hurts my eyes, as a user with sensory related struggles, it’s now borderline unusable for me dude to a headache in less than 5 minutes use of the new look... it’s WAY too harsh compared and the icons are hard to see now too, you made it as horrible to look at for a workable period of time, from a sensory perspective, as photoshop. Sorry to say that I may stop subscribing after this month if I can’t find a way to fix this.

Honestly this app is the best drawing program out there on the iPad right now in my opinion. I’ve used the desktop version since it’s release and now being able to use it on iPad anywhere is amazing. I also tried out procreate but the lack of blending and blurring options is a big downfall for me. This app however has an enormous range of blurring and blending options. And has all the brushes I’m used to on pc! The interface is a lot like the desktop version as well. Which is alright but can get a little cramped sometimes if you don’t have it in the tablet mode with all the sub menus. But overall I’d recommend this app to anybody! Especially those who like smooth line art and soft blending options a lot like Paint Tool Sai! The only downfall with this app is the subscription. As someone who bought the desktop version and uses that also paying extra to use the iPad version is a little annoying, BUT the yearly option isn’t so bad. The monthly option however, is quite high.

I’ve used Clip Studio for several years as a professional illustrator on a desktop with a Wacom. The iPad version is exactly the same as the desktop version, it’s fast, works with all of my custom brushes, and best of all works incredibly well with the Apple Pencil - nicer to draw with than Procreate in my opinion. Having it with me as been fantastic for work and travel. I usually hate subscriptions, however the £20 yearly subscription for “Clip Studio Pro” is good value for money. The vast majority of users (myself included) do not need “Clip Studio EX” which is exactly the same program with some extra features for comic creators. There seems to be some confusion about this in other reviews, so perhaps the devs need to do a better job of communicating which version is relevant.

This app is without question the best art app on the iPad, an almost identical port of the desktop version... but... it does have one serious flaw, which in fact makes for two. It’s File sharing system is unacceptable. It has no way to transfer work files back and forth via cloud services. At present you have to connect to iTunes if you wish to transfer the clip paint comic files to the app, though you can transfer the files off of the app via iCloud. For an app they want you to eventually pay £7 a month for this is unacceptable. If this flaw is fixed in the next 6 months I will, reluctantly, pay the £7 a month... although I also feel this is a rather steep price to pay having already bought the desktop version. While this is, without question, the best professional level art app on the iPad (procreate is a joke comparatively, although MediBang comes close) at £7, a single months subscription is almost the same price as any other apps one off purchase. Still, great app, with those serious flaws.

So far the app has very nice brushes and features (although the features are often over-complicated and user-unfriendly like Illustrator) but it is seriously buggy in places and as such is not worth the subscription fee - so happy it has a free trial period! Maybe the bugs will be ironed out before the fee kicks in .. fingers crossed. For instance: when renaming files, file names are then mixed up and given to random other files .. no kidding! This is followed by the rename option then not working at all. This is an app killer, especially as the file system is too basic to be useful without some kind of external archive. However: the vector inking brushes are very nice and the lines are editable and make this worth persevering with for the time being.
