      I never used it that often. Its not the best. Ibis paint x seems less complex to me. BUT, it is really good if you don't have mobile.

      Because of the layering, blending, and brushes. Which is the greatest thing in every drawing app.

      A very good app that has just enough features for almost any artists to enjoy. It has layers, some really good brush settings, and the color tool is pretty nice. Probably one of the best to use instead of Ibis Paint. Although, it does costs a lot of money, but it's ends up being worth it.
      Positive comment over 3 years ago

      I've never used it, but I've seen lots of people use it and it looks very simple and similar to Microsoft Paint, but it's a very good app!

      It's not horrible per-sae but it's way too different from IbisPaint. Medibang is a relatively frustrating program if you use if for photo editing or want ANYTHING to do with symmetry. It's interface for desktop is confusing and don't even get me started on the fact that it's line correction is garbage. However, it's not the absolute worst and is preferable compared to programs such as Microsoft paint
