    I've only been using Procreate, but some people seem to like Paper, Sketch and some others. Just wondering which one you like and why you think it's better than the others.

    It would be interesting. Where it not for the 17 other threads with the exact same topic.

    I went through the first three pages and didn't see the topic. Sorry.

    Procreate hands down, but nice to have some variety, art rage for traditional looking stuff, u can import custom brushes into procreate, scour the procreate forums, create ur own brushes, many pro features there

    Deco sketch is cool

    Animation desk is fun

    Other notables:

    Sketch club

    Assembly

    Zen brush 2

    I love Procreate, but one feature I LOVE on Sketch is the ruler and shape tracer feature. I have a bit of a shaky hand from having diabetes and my blood sugar affects my steadiness, so I wish that Procreate would have those features.

    I'm interested in this too. I have only used Adobe sketch so far. Will need to give Procreate a look now.

    From PC days I use Corel Draw for a number of graphical tasks. I'd love to see it come available for IPP strictly for a reduced learning curve.

    I really like Procreate. And there are some features I like in Photoshop Sketch... (I wish it had layers). Procreate is pretty amazing. It has a really good community base too. Nice tips and advice. Sometimes people share different kinds of brushes. Paper 53 isn't as good as I remember. I like in Procreate and Photoshop Sketch the ability to change the weight of the stroke so you can vary the line work. :)

    Paper 53 has no color wheel or anything, am I correct? I only ever see the option for like 7 colors, which can be "mixed" in the little palette to their left on the toolbar. I actually *really* like that "mixing" palette, really unique and useful IMO, but too limited color selection at the start.

    Adobe's apps confuse me. There are *so many* of them with highly specific features.

    I think Procreate is probably the best in terms of features, interface, and flexibility.

    A bit off topic but procreate seems to randomly pop a color wheel when I'm intending to make a brush stroke and I end up changing colors. It must be a gesture I'm making but I have no idea what. Any ideas?

    When you tap and hold in Procreate, an eyedropper appears after a short delay. You can change the delay in settings - it appears to be 400ms by default.
