I like Inspire Pro much better than Sketchbook Pro!

And here's why. I can't say Sketchbook Pro is terrible by any means, but for my taste, Inspire Pro surpasses it on many levels. First, the user interface is too complicated compared to Inspire Pro's and not as polished. It doesn't seem like the UI has had any attention to detail and it simply looks and feels a lot worse. Next, the brushes are simple and static in comparison. Inspire Pro's brushes evolve as a stroke progresses, giving a more natural feel. And sure it may seem like Sketchbook has more brushes, but with all of Inspire's brush options taken into account, it actually has more combinations and control than Sketchbook does. Finally, and most important, is the blending. The "smear" in Sketchbook is a joke compared to the sophisticated blending that Inspire Pro can do. Try mixing red and yellow together in Sketchbook and see what happens, then try it in Inspire Pro and you'll see what I mean. Sketchbook is probably a lot of artists' favorite app, but for me, I hardly use it anymore because I use Inspire Pro instead.

Update: I forgot to mention that Sketchbook Pro crashes every couple of hours, at which you lose all your work - back to a blank canvas. Is an auto-save feature that hard Autodesk!?!? I have never experienced a crash with Inspire Pro.

0/5 stars

Awesome app, but unreliable.

I really enjoy creating sketches with this app. It is by far the best of its kind. *BUT* too often, when the app crashes, since the files don't seem to autosave, the work is lost -- sometimes the entire file is gone, sometimes only a layer or two, sometimes it reverts to some resemblance of a previous state. Regardless, this unreliability makes the app about as worthwhile as the latest game: enjoyable to use, but ultimately a waste of hours of work with nothing to show for it. Ugh.

3/5 stars

I love the layers, brushes, and UI, but...

I don't like that there is no auto save. It is not intuitive to have to leave the canvas to save the progress. This wasn't initially bothersome but since I do mostly tracing and coloring of photos this causes aggregation when the app crashes. This has happened a few times in the past week and I lose much time.

The tools & quick access to opacity and brush size is great.

Crashing is my only beef.
