ArtStudio is just too good not to leave a review for. I’ve been using Photoshop on my PC for drawing, photo editing, and professional work for the past six years and when I finally got an iPad with Apple Pencil support I was really hoping Procreate or one of the numerous other drawing/editing apps would be able to replace the feel of PS. Unfortunately, even though Procreate is indeed an amazing drawing program, it still doesn’t really satisfy my need for the familiar feel of photoshop and drawing with photoshop brushes. ArtStudio Pro solved all my problems. It’s got everything you could need and MORE (I especially love their amazing smoothing/line weight algorithm and pressure customization). It’s basically Photoshop, but without having to pay the ridiculous Adobe subscription every month. The price for this app is perfect, in my opinion (and honestly it’s even a bit low, for all it’s able to accomplish) and I really want to give a huge thank you to everyone who worked on/is working on this app and updating it. You’ve saved me so much money and frustration. Hats of to you!

News

According to the most recent report, provided by SuperData, the worldwide market for VR gaming will reach $5.1B in revenues in 2016. The install base will go over 55 million users.

Virtual reality will start bringing some money this year. Over the last couple of years over $6.1B of investment were made in this sector, so it’s high time for the developers to start showing their product.

Today is a special day for VR-technology, as Oculus VR started to accept pre-orders for its Oculus Rift headset. You can say that the whole VR-rush started with Oculus and the campaign on Kickstarter. However Oculus VR is not the first company to start selling its VR-product. In late November Samsung Gear VR went on sale and, according to SuperData, did relatively well. The product sold out in 48 hours!

Oculus Rift could be pre-ordered for $600. For this you get the headset, the Xbox 360 controller, plus two free VR-games. The first shipment will start in March 2016. It’s hard to say if it’s a good deal. Let’s wait and learn the prices on other devices from Sony and HTC.
