Con’s:

1. The app lacks proper guidelines or tutorials to use for beginners. Though, it has a tutorial it is very difficult to understand and get started with.

2. The user interface (UI) of the app is not user-friendly.

3. The names of the tools are not visible on the toolbar, even when you hover on it.

4. The tools and interface are very technical to understand (Physics involved). For example, the meter on the app for stabilization is not easy to control.

5. The tools load very slowly, hence, it becomes time-consuming and is very cumbersome to use

6. The tools are limited to usage in certain areas only. It is good for people who sketch but it doesn’t suit every style of digital art.
