    ibis Paint X vs Sony Sketch opinions
    pros, cons and recent comments

    Sketch is more simplified version of ibis paint x and also has a huuuge community. Sketch was like Instagram + Krita but simplified. Sadly, they deactivited the online features and it can't be download from app store or google play store. That's why here I am :') Looking for an alternative to Sketch. WE WON'T FORGET SKETCH. I was a sketcher, and I miss Sony Sketch ;-;
