As an avid Sketchbook Pro user on the iPad 2, I was super keen to see how it performed with the new display and graphics processor.
Sadly, I can’t even be bothered to write a proper review.
The app is slow and clunky, and despite Apple selling it as a great app for the new iPad, it’s too slow to be a nice useable app. Sorry Autodesk, but you’ve failed on this version. More importantly… this highlights a FAR bigger issue. Apple, you should have upgraded the processor, clearly these new retina display apps are struggling with not enough horsepower.
My recommendation is to avoid this app… at least until there is an update that address the speed issue.
UPDATE: within 72 hours, Autodesk issued an update which resolves the slowness issues, the app now runs at the same speed as the iPad 2 version and we’re all happy campers again. I shall be posting a full review shortly.
This is the sort of responsiveness that we want from a software firm. Outstanding Autodesk, really. Thankyou.
