  • The Death of Adobe Illustrator ...(not really, but almost)

    By transcendentalaccidentalism
    I’m stopping to write this out of some frustration I’ve run into that I can’t blame entirely on Assembly, but I also can’t not blame them for allowing things to end up in their current state without some safeguards in place. My issue is with the fact that my iPad Pro has been crawling and struggling just to open anything in this app - it reminds me of working publications/graphic design back before 2k with PowerMac 8500s that had 80 megabytes of RAM and 4 GB HDs. It was sloooowww. Even Adobe Illustrator, which assembly is a practical alternative version of, with its vectors and lack of dense rasterized images would have performance issues. But those days should be in the past. I believe it is mainly because my documents are all in my cloud. And because there is a lot of them it seems to get traffic jammed. Sometimes I can’t open anything while other times it takes so long to get something opened only to have a error message telling me I can’t edit the document. Maybe the vectors are by and large too complex ? I have been using the imaengine app to .svg photos into assembly which could be the culprit also. iCloud can be slow, but not operational Death slow ... *im also using test flight for new versions - it would be great to hear from the dev to give me some hint as to which of these things could be responsible for the maddening crawl. Had to subtract a star until I figure this out.
  • So easy to create

    By Ibrahimtamerm
    I know, it’s a cliche. But if I can create with this app ANYONE over 8 can.
  • Quick response time

    By Sermn8er
    Developer responded to difficulty in less than a day. Very good response time.
  • Lost a couple of my purchases.

    By redspawn
    After the last update the whole app disappeared, was told that the beta version had expired when in fact I had purchased the app a while back. Re-downloaded the app and some of my extra purchases are missing. I don’t rate of criticize any app that I’m not happy, but if I pay for something I expect it to be here when I get ready to use it aging.
  • Incredible.

    By Jaredmherman
    If you are a graphic designer or artist that needs to get simple or moderate work done in a pinch, Assembly won't let you down. The team is constantly adding new feature's, I hope soon it will be able to rival the likes of Adobe Illustrator. As of now though, if you are planning on doing complex graphic designs with multiple layers and gradients, it may not be suitable. Though, it is by far the greatest graphic design tool in the App Store by lightyears. There is also a $30/year subscription for more shapes as well as the ability to use text and custom fonts, GET THIS, ITS INCREDIBLE. Get this whole app, it's incredible, cheers!
  • Fraudulent billing for a weekly pro subscription

    By Onestarupdate
    When using the app, the app automatically suggested I preview some of the new Pro features. There is no way to opt out of the preview and apparently even opening the app will automatically subscribe you to a WEEKLY pro subscription. Completely fraudulent and disgusting behavior.
  • Best for creating SVG while jogging

    By Mandrio Ardetti
    It’s a 5 star app for usefulness on the small 3x5 phone screen while riding on the bus. I take a star because of subscription pricing. It’s the snapping that gives it smarts and the precision. Precision I use to center a small circle on top a larger circle and “cut” to make an ‘O’ shape, without an align function... on the trampoline. You can draw anything when you master the controls and features. The snap make it fun... and useful. Export the SVG and continue on my desktop.
  • Amazing

    By 🏌⛷⛷🏐
    Graphic arts is something that I really enjoy and this app just gives me so much creative space to play with and grow that I can’t stop using it! The endless shapes and logos gives my mind a rush! I’m glad I discovered this I’m definitely gonna recomend this app.!!!
  • Love this app

    By Artistic869
    This app is one of my favorite design apps of all time!!! I love the ease of the layers and the design ability of everything. The only thing I’d like to see that would make it my absolute favorite would be to integrate a few drawing features and to be able to texture my colors... the flat color isn’t always what I want.
  • New project don't work.

    By LaGarraChapina
    I have this app for long now plus a brought everything and a few months ago I stop using this app, recently a saw a tutorial on Instagram so I decided to use the app again but now the app does not let me create anything!
  • Let me paste text...

    By —̲_̲▀̲̅˩̲̲̱̩̲̅̿̅
    and let me get a menu with all of my elements to make them easier to select, jeez.
  • Seems okay...

    By SharronApple
    But why do they want a subscription? Why can’t I just buy the app and be done with it? It’s not a magazine, it’s a little vector app. I guess that’s the new business model: “just get them to pay for it every month”. Frustrating and disappointing.
  • Great App

    By Shrrdkn
    I am on the 7 day trial period and so far everything looks good. But I am still not sure about how to name a file as it always exports as assembly.pdf etc. Also, all images no matter the size export at 72 dpi. Is there a way to change the dpi to 300 for good printing?
  • Missing stickers

    By Ebsolas
    So, I know all my stickers are still in the app and I can make new ones by clicking the add new in the iMessage interface, but I can't view them or edit them in app. I use this app mostly for the stickers and removing the ability to access them quite literally makes this app pointless for me.
  • Offer paid version.

    By udontknowmebaish
    I would gladly pay $100 up front for an app with some of these capabilities, but cannot bring myself to subscribe to pay forever for an iPad app. Offer a one time payment for a lifetime license.
  • Crop marks and Bleed Capability

    Will you be adding crop marks and bleed capability? When sending to print, printers need this information...
  • Can’t save to camera roll w/ free app

    I can’t even export to my camera roll
  • It seems so useful, but...

    By Blantantalt
    I really just wish there was a way to pay once up front for all features. I hate downloading a free app only to be locked out of all the useful functionality and then pay for a subscription. If you’re fine with paying a subscription, this app is amazing! You should get it, it’s really good. But I for one would rather pay once rather than have a constant leech on my funds.
  • Esh

    By Hgfdrfgiiyvdqqdfgjjhgddrghgfef
    Froze on me when I was making something took 3 hours to respond and restart my iPad but otherwise it’s cool but you can only make 3 things without a membership :(
  • Love the app

    By blueeyes2276
    This app is a go to for anything creative. Combine this app with any photo editor and you have hours and maybe months of projects at the tip of your finger.
  • A Must Have for Everyone!

    By Mommabird25
    I love this app and have been using it for years. It made me into an artist. I always had an eye, but with Assembly, I'm able to execute my Ideas. This App should be a ‘must have’ on every child’s iPad on the planet. Adult’s too! Assembly is the best App I have! If I had one complaint, I wish the stickers could be removed, just so I can have more space for my designs. I love this program!!!
  • Need more options

    By DivaShine
    Alright app so far, shapes options are kinda basic and would like more. Desert options are limited. I wanted to add color between the shapes; particularly the cake, wanted to fill in spaces and couldn’t. Outlining the shapes is only option.
  • What happened?

    By miseryporn
    I used to love this app. Now there is no ability to create new work with the free version? Very confusing.
  • Doesn't work at all

    By clc1507
    Used this app years ago before it had a subscription and it was great. Very easy to start projects. Now, I've reinstalled it, signed up for the subscription, and there is literally no indication of where I start a new project or access anything to create. "New Project" is grayed out and the "My Work" screen is a blank white screen.
  • So much fun & so handy

    By Well Informed Turtle
    I enjoy fabric design & this app has set me free! Creating some things (people & animals) can be a challenge, but it's worked just fine in the end. I've spent hours using this app. I love the large pixel dimensions (better print definition) and its flexibility. And now text! My mind goes off spinning with more designs. Thank you! 4/8/2019 This app keeps maturing. I love the feature of being able to create custom shapes by altering edge curvatures. It can be fussy to work with, but I can usually get where I want to be. Shading colors would be nice (ombré across single hue & interpreted multiple hues would be fun). I use the app in fabric design more than any other. Thank you developers!
  • Absolutely love it

    By puppet nonsense
    What a great app! Excellent design + great features. I hope you keep developing it. :D Update: This app just keeps getting better and better. The minute you add a pen tool is the same minute I start using this more than adobe illustrator!
  • Important ! Read

    By squintedl
    I was being charged for 10 weeks now, I didn’t authorize any charge and didn’t notice that I was being charged weekly for having this app that I deleted after using it once because I didn’t find it useful.
  • Great app, but...

    By Socks & sandles
    I love using this app, I’ve made all sorts of cover art and backgrounds, etc. this app has been great, but they recently updated the app which saved all of my artwork, however I wasn’t able to edit any of them. I usually subscribe to pro when I work on a specific project, otherwise there is no need for me to do it. I was disappointed to go into the app and find a new update and all of my drawings locked and unable to edit. Other than that, it’s a great app that does everything you need it to.
  • Great! But some suggestions..

    By Xjohnny2000
    This app is super helpful for me, especially because I do freelance logo design here and there. This has a lot more features than one would expect from a phone application. Absolutely killer! I’ve had this app for a while and I can’t help but notice that the “save video” option has changed. Now you get four different options for how the video will get played back. While those transitions do look pretty cool, I miss the video playback style where it was just a time lapse of every change that was made from the blank canvas to the final product. It was always super satisfying to watch my projects come together and it helped me a lot to see which shapes and methods I ditched and which ones I used along the way. It was also funny to show my friends and see their reaction to my almost-creepy desire for every little thing to be perfect😂 also if you could create an option to erase parts of shapes in the shape editor, that’d be cool! With a hardness adjuster and all the other standard things that an erase/fill brush should come with! Just a thought. My main thing is that I really miss the timelapse-style playback! PLEASE BRING THAT BACK!!! Thank you! :)
  • Price change please

    By mike_5630
    Pretty good app tho $7 monthly seems pricey
  • Incredible vector illustration and design tool

    By Designlove56
    A totally fresh new approach to vector design and illustration. It’s especially powerful with iPad. This is a powerhouse tool for designers and vector illustrators. I would like to see the developers embrace this in a more pro style way. We need the ability to change the canvas sizes manually with the ability to change to inches, or whatever other measurement. Could be awesome if you guys added a pen tool as a secondary option to shape building. Would be great to see even more export options like PDF & EPS. This is a powerful pro tool so I’d love to see that embraced more. I think this is the very best vector creation software for iOS/iPad. I think the main thing I’d like to see right now is the ability to put in custom canvas/art board sizes so we can do full on layouts with the software to real world scales.
  • My fav way to design on mobile

    By Melissamcewen
    I've tried a bunch of similar apps and this is my fav. I can import my company's asset kit in svg format and turn them into stickers in Assembly so I can quickly create mockups on the go. I also have been using it for my personal projects. The exports work perfectly in my fav desktop apps like Sketch or Illustrator. I love the cute stickers and variety of shapes too!
  • Honest Review

    By Trasher___ Man
    First off I wanna say that this is a very very great app with a good concept and recently poor execution. I’m no professional or anything like that I just make stuff here and there on Assembly. When I first got the app it was amazing, no bugs and only a few suggestions to add. Now times have changed, the things that we’re missing have now been added but they are filled with bugs and problem. The folder system is awesome and something I really love but it freezes my screen every time I add something, causing me to have to exit the app then come back and have the cycle repeat. The app crashes more frequently for some reason as well and is just more awkward now than it was 3 years ago when I downloaded it. I really do like this app and I have made some awesome things, it’s just the execution and some choices halt me from using it as frequently as I used to. Please fix some things folks. 6.5/10
  • Newest update deleted some of my recent projects

    By Sibigtroth
    A few updates ago, I used to be able to use stickers I had made in my texts. I haven’t been able to do that in a while and tried to update the app hoping I could. When I did, the last few projects I had worked on were no longer showing up, basically anything I had created in the last 10+ months. I’m not sure if it’s an issue with the Cloud or what. The stickers I had created and saved since that time are thankfully still there, but it’s a major disappointment for me. Assembly had been my go-to art app for a few years, but now I’m afraid to work on anything for fear of the projects deleting again.

  • Grate! Grate! Grate!

    By forest tramp
    App is super-trumper useful, would be grate if you add a gradient tool 👌
  • This app is amazing

    By ralokz
    I love the balance between simplicity and flexibility. This has just enough features to create my own designs, but doesn’t offer so many features that it’s impossible to learn One minor request: I’d love to be able to specify hex or RGB values for colors rather than just using a color picker. This would be super useful for matching existing color schemes.

  • Meh

    By Michelle McGarvey
    Great and awesome but you are money hungry because i have to have premium to have unlimited projects so 4 stars
  • Great fun !!!

    By today
    Takes practice But its great Fun Relaxing Update-still think it’s a great app needs update(s) One being an easier way of getting knowing about up date
  • Community???

    By HoneyWhiteHorror
    5 stars, of course, but I have a festering question and it’s driving me MAD 😳 Doesn’t this app have a community to see and share with others? Where the hell did it go? I have NO IDEA where to find it like it just disappeared & im SOOO aggravated right now 😤😭
  • Fantastic

    By Brad247
    This app should be in any logo creators phone or iPad. It is so useful for getting ideas down quick and very intuitive for layering all your ideas into a story board. Love this app.
  • Scammy subscription.

    By excusecaboose
    I enjoyed it for the brief time I used it, but I am shocked that it defaults to a 2.99 subscription WEEKLY. Why is that even an option, when a monthly or yearly is much much less? Everything is gated by money. It’s a great product ruined by greed.
  • An Illustrator type app made for touch control!

    By VJ Franz K
    It’s a great UI, you can soon make something you will like. Suitable for all ages!
  • ASSEMBLY: Nice Updates!

    By MatthewAV
    • The new and evolving features in Assembly reflect the devs knowledge of design and what tools can be useful for photographers and designers. • Assembly’s updates are meaningful, stable and enhance my work. • Apple recently moved to a subscription model for iPhones (and more) and “gently pushed” devs to realize the fair value for the apps/art/tools they create. • 99¢ apps are long gone and devs deserve the value of their work—subscriptions are the future. • I AGREE. • DEVS ARE PEOPLE TOO! • There’s a trial version and a very fairly priced subscription version. • Legacy Owners HAVE been given time before subscription pricing activated. ••••EDIT•••• • I was out of the USA, away from phones and computers (seriously nice), and just returned about three days ago...I think. (SERIOUS jet lag.) • Devs slapped me upside the head with kindness, great service, and supportive answer. • I hereby rewrite my review to reflect the amazing Assembly app and the dev’s truly genuine solution. (I waved my hands around in the air to make this officially and worthy of using the word “hereby”.) • I should have emailed the devs before I went whining like a whining person on the Review pages—I ALWAYS FORGET to do that! Dam TBI! • THAT’S WHY “Contact Us” PAGES WERE INVENTED! • Thank you, Pixite. • Still besties?
  • Love this app! Three things that can be improved

    By @mello.foto
    - Having the option to layout a grid with an opacity slider and the ability to control the density of the grid would be very useful for things that require symmetry. - The ability to warp text is long overdue. If Microsoft word can do it, this app should definitely be able to do it! - Lastly, we need a color gradient tool and maybe even a paint bucket tool. I find that coloring is the most restrictive part of of this app.
  • Subscription based apps are greedy money grabs

    By dazaniii
    Downloaded this app only to find it very limited, everything behind a subscription paywall. Looking through these reviews it looks like this was once a one time purchase to unlock the premium features. I will not be supporting any subscription based app, let me pay 10 or 15 dollars for permanent unlock or you won’t get my money at all.
  • $3 a week!

    By Lexiecodes
    I was interested in trying this but not if there’s going to be a weekly recurring charge. Maybe for $3 a month!
