Cross-platform use 4/5
The app works like social media. You are able to speak with other people, show your art and follow the artists you like. After you have created something via the app you can download it and save on your phone, share via other social media or send your friends by email. Penup free app does not require something special. It is compatible with Android 5.0 system and higher and needs just 26M of phone’s space.
The app is free. But, since Penup was made especially for S Pen owners, you need to have one. Samsung created the app to gather a community of artists who use Stylus Pen in daily life. It means you must be the owner of S Pen and Android device that works with it. If you have lost S Pen, don’t worry, it can be replaceable. You will have to contact the official Samsung center and buy the new one.
The Bottom Line
Penup is one of the best art platforms for S Pen users. Millions of people across the world have already tried the app and found it worthy of attention. You can either be an active part of the community after you join it or stay passive. Active means that you will have to share your art from time to time and passive allows you to follow others and watch their art. You can combine both of these modes.
Penup downloading process takes a few seconds and after that, you can enter the big international community of artists and become one of them.
Pros : Training programs;
You are able to turn your photos into drawings;
Follow famous artists.
Cons : You still need to have S Pen if you need to draw there;
This is a community for artists so you have to be interested in art.
