Comments and Reviews from users:

The Earth Stars: “I have so much fun with this app!!! Tons of different features which allows you to create and edit your art creations. The only issue in the magic media AI design is when you are given the 4 options, sometimes when you touch the image it puts one of the other 3 images that were created instead of the actual image you touched to add. It can get frustrating when it's a great design and you can't properly save it. I'd say that happen about 1 time in every 15 to 20 designs.” – 4/5 in Play Store

Ashley H: “Absolutely horrible now! This used to be my favorite app, but for the past couple months I literally can't save anything without it being corrupted. Not only that, but when I go in to make edits on Old projects, its removing all of my transitions!!! I'm not even sure how that's possible, but my patience is spent. I have updated, troubleshot, and done everything I know to do... I give up” – 3/5 in Play Store

Brennan Dyck: “An amazing app! Great for drawing with. Update: After the latest update, I noticed some problems. When I imported a picture, I could not change the size or location of it. I tried selecting the image, and the selection tools would not even work. Still a good app. Update: The problem with the picture has been fixed. Yet another update: Now, parts of my drawings keep vanishing! Pls fix” – 4/5 in Play Store

Lisa: “it's great, there's literally no ads at all, which is amazing. however, there is a glitch where if you're coloring, it will randomly start trying to layer each brush stroke. it doesn't happen often, but whenever it does happen, it's always on an important artwork. oh, and when you save an artwork, it'll also save the file in your gallery, but when you delete the file from the gallery, you can't edit the drawing anymore. other than those things, it's a great app for beginners.” – 4/5 in Play Store

Comments and Reviews from users:

Lisa Oswald: “Absolutely love this game, it's just not possible to play unless you spend about $20/day. Everything is outrageously priced (ie a table runner for $1000???) and I mean everything. Fun, art is beautiful but even with $5 - $10/day, can't enter more then 3 challenges and only if scrounging for cheapest items. Unfortunately, I recommend trying similar games that don't require so many purchases at extreme prices, (there are some!) instead. Beautiful graphics, put together well with a great inventory” – 2/5 in Play Store

k w: “Just started playing. Learned what was what quickly. Let's be real. It's a nice game, but it's also a cash grab. Getting the exclusive rewards set is useless because it usually does not include what you really need like gems and coins in order to progress in the game. To do well enough to get a high voting score, you need to spend gems on the right items. Spent a few bucks from the start but realized I was wasting my money. The gems and coins ran out rather quickly on just two or three items.” – 3/5 in Play Store

Amandine Peter: “I hated the previous version, and find the new app much more user friendly! There's definitely a learning curve, it looked more complicated at first, but once I got my bearings, I loved it. Particularly love how you can just try out several pictures without constantly going back to the search tool and retyping what you're looking for. HOWEVER CAN SOMEONE PLEASE EXPLAIN WHY WE DON'T GET A JUSTIFY TEXT OPTION ? Sorry for screaming, but it's just SO basic that the absence of it is beyond me.” – 5/5 in Play Store

Nicholas Lombardo: “I understand the need for updates and improvements, but the new version of this app with all its amazing new features is very difficult to use in a normal one-handed mobile device method. With the old app I could do my photo edits, art collaborations, any sort of manipulation I need to do with images and it would be amazingly simple and look great. The new version of the app has a lot of potential, but it's still extremely buggy. Just adding text can be super frustrating!” – 2/5 in Play Store

A Google user: “I liked this app, at first, cuz it allows you to view your designs in VR which the other app I use does not. but I realized quickly that the controls are very awkward and most items are locked. I also couldn't figure out how to add a second room to my design I built from scratch so it got quite frustrating. I think I'll be sticking with Home Design 3D because it works much better. if your looking for a good house building and design app Home Design 3D is the way to go, not this one.” – 2/5 in Play Store

Kendell Culbreth: “I found this app by accident & overall a wonderful app that is very useful. I have trouble with the measurements (the points of each end of the wall) being spot on, which is frustrating. The lack of catalog items for free and only allowed a few ads a hour to unlock. But in all honestly the price for a one time purchase isn't terrible to unlock everything. I would have gave it 5 star if there was a HELP topic on grid, wall, points, etc on how to make sure walls don't end up /_| but like |_| .” – 4/5 in Play Store

Frying Panda: “best painting software for android out there. my only wish is that it was easier to use the eyedropper. my art makes heavy use of the eyedropper for blending. in photoshop I have it bound to a quick key and I press it constantly. in this app you have to drag your finger from the color selection. it just takes a little more time. and you have to make sure you drag the right way otherwise you'll end up adjusting the brightness instead.” – 4/5 in Play Store

Jessica Seltzer: “While at first even the Gold Plus seemed limited, it is a way to use constant creativity! I'm absolutely obsessed! It is my version of video games 😂 It has also resparked my interest in architecture and am considering going back to school for it! -Tip: don't under estimate the geometric shapes! Resize/repurpose them and then use the texture options to bring them to life! (ex: counter tops, porch/patio, covered porch, closet rods, etc)!” – 4/5 in Play Store

Autum Johnson: “I normally don't rate apps unless I really like them and this is no exception! It's great for simply designing houses- projects- or actual blue prints. Nothing is ever perfect but this app is the best of its kind that I have found. The $10.00 upgrade pretty much covers everything besides anything that's 3 stories and up and multiple roofing options. The user interface can be frustrating at times, but mostly when I've been using the app top much and I'm rushing to get things done. 👍👍” – 5/5 in Play Store

A Google user: “I really like this app, it is easy to use and looks professional. I do wish that my ideabook list could be organized alphabetically because I don't like how it organizes by the last one I viewed.

Marciea Guzek: “I've been playing Redecor for a couple years now and I really appreciate some of the changes they've made..for example, receiving tokens a lot easier and the free spins that are occasionally offered. However, I absolutely loathe the voting system. I feel that it isn't honest and may be computer generated..and because of this, it takes a bit of fun out of the game.” – 4/5 in Play Store

Ashley Hollingsworth: “This was a tough vote! I like the idea of this game, and it could be fun, but I have lost items and money. I bought items in the game that were never given to me and robbed me of star coins, and it's not easy to earn star coins. You have to buy packages in the game to have constant cash coins so you can earn new colors and items and even then you only have so many of the items, they run out and you have to buy them again.

And that's just one of many problems, interestingly enough, I had a very similar problem with flipaclip but I solved it by limiting the canvas size...” – 2/5 in Play Store

Badge O'Shame: “I think it is fantastic, and that it has the potential to surpass Adobe Illustrator from a logo and art perspective. It's amazing! There are a few issues though, such as crashing while using the edit tool on lines and a weird glitch where you can't see the change in an editted line until you zoom away from it?

A Google user: “When I first discovered this app, I loved it. But once I finished my design, I couldn't save it. It says "error processing request" every single time. It also randomly stops loading all the items & will only let me paint the walls and flooring. Which makes it pointless. Once all the issues are resolved, it'll be a 5 star app, for sure.” – 3/5 in Play Store

A Google user: “It looks good and all from the reviews, and I'm sure I'd enjoy it. However, everytime I try to open up the app it just stays in the loading screen with the logo on it. I've erased it and downloaded it again but it's no use, it won't load. Am I supposed to wait really long because it is my first time setting up the app since I have never used it before?.. I'd give it a few more stars if I were actually able to do somerhing else rather than stare at the logo for minutes. EDIT: I was able to log in today, but I have 2 things that really annoy me. 1 ) I can't move my camera. This makes the space I have very limited and the results of my designs are mediocre and could improve by a LOT. 2 ) Not being able to place my furniture on the ground. If I drag it down to put it onto the floor, it stays up in mid-air. This also makes my rooms turn out all weird and funky looking.” – 3/5 in Play Store

ilyahna: “I love this! I've downloaded and deleted so many home decor games and this one is a keeper. The graphics and effects are great, the furniture is unique and fun. Even the music isn't annoying which is a rare quality in match 3s. The puzzles have a few different elements from most match 3s so it's not the same old game. I hate that I have to go to bed instead of play this more lol.” – 5/5 in Play Store

J Rod: “Great styles to choose from, and you don't have to pick a "theme" in each room since all the options work pretty well with each other. The match 3 games are easy enough to be relaxing but challenging enough to keep you engaged. They also have their own spin on some elements, so that's fun. And if that's not enough for you, it seems like they want you to enjoy playing more than they want your money, unlike most of the other design apps I've played. That point alone is worth 5 stars in my book.” – 5/5 in Play Store

Sighaka Ange: “Useful application for writing concept Maps I was looking for an application with infinite canvas and this one works; It took me a while to figure out how to change the settings. Overall, very Versatile; I like that they offer a lot of customization options. The only issue I noticed for now is that the application is not very smooth when scrolling compared to other applications. Hopefully this could be improved with future updates” – 4/5 in Play Store

Cristine E. Wright: “As someone extremely picky about all of my apps, this one has been one of the best I have paid for. Searching for a combination note-taking/artboard application to use for mind mapping, I came across Concepts. It is feature-rich with practical tools, user-friendly and intuitive. If you have latency issues, just check your apps settings. I have been using it for about a month and have had none. A $25 lifetime subscription and users give 1 ⭐ 🤯. Understand what the app is for first.” – 5/5 in Play Store

Comments and Reviews from users:

A Google user: “It's a good start, but there are problems with sizing and formatting that are hard to ignore. Also, apparently you can't select a frame within a frame, which is ideally how I'd like to use this app. My main frames in Figma include phone bezels, but I want to select just the content frames to send to my phone, and that doesn't work.” – 3/5 in Play Store

A Google user: “Missing a lot of functionality. Like most others have said, you need to be able to see an overview of some sort. Having to click the artboard you want to view for it to then show up on the phone is clunky. Not. only this, but there tend to be a lot of visual errors too. I get a random vertical line that appears, and images won't load unless I close and restart the app.” – 2/5 in Play Store

Comments and Reviews from users:

Jennifer Robin: “I would rate this higher but it is in need of a serious edit. The grammar and word use is awful. I'm not sure if it was google translated from another language, or if someone who doesn't have English as a first language wrote it but 75% of what I have completed is almost incomprehensible. The information is very useful for someone with no design background but wading through the bad writing is putting me off. A short example: "It matters, trust us, we have proofs." It's "We have proof."” – 3/5 in Play Store

Eric Launius: “The content is great so this is one of few apps I subscribe to. However, I keep encountering weird sentences, where I have to guess the meaning, and grammatical errors. You should get a proofreader or at least run all texts through a service like Grammarly. Another small issue is when you've completed a topic and you go to the next. The green check animation is shown twice. First when you've completed the topic, and then when you've pressed the next button.” – 4/5 in Play Store

Comments and Reviews from users:

Blackbelt Craftmaster: “This app is a wonderful addition to Brother's creative suite of products! Right now the editing and drawing are pretty basic (it's a free app after all). I can see how they're planning many more additions! And it needs it. I have an XP2 and My Design Center has more editing capabilities, but if you're out and about you can start your ideas! Love the patterns and the magazine. I've only played with this for a short time and so I can't give technical remarks. But I love what I see so far.” – 5/5 in Play Store

Grace Sullivan: “I wish I could work on these files on my laptop. Right now I am working in a work around scenario mixing the content that comes with the subscription fee by taking screenshots and building elsewhere and then hopefully- redigitizing. This app has so much potential I hope it's capabilities expand with updates. I would love to invest my intellectual property in working within it if it's cross platform limitations are overcome. 💓” – 5/5 in Play Store
