    WARNING! - You need LOTS of in app purchases for this app to be worthwhile;
    - Essentials $7.99
    - Color $1.99
    - Sketch $1.99
    - Write $1.99
    - Outline $1.99

    You don't need Ackbar to tell you, it's a trap.

    for $16, is it really that much better than AAAALLLLLL the other apps that do exactly the same thing as this?

    Meh. not better than Sketchbook Pro.

      I just tried it out and Sketchbook is much much better and not $16. Its not even worth the time to try it.

        Come to think of it, its actually cheaper to buy a real paintbrush than it is in this app.

    Okay, just to clarify it's not $16. The essentials is all the tools bundled for $7.99. Not a discount mind you. It's still $8 regardless.
