user01010111 - Works great but lacks sync/export
The app itself is simple and easy to use and meets most of my needs, but AFAICT reference boards are saved locally to the device on which they are created and there is no way to copy or sync boards between iPhone and iPad. iCloud support would make both apps 5 stars and well worth the price for both.
Otakumons - Highly HIGHLY recommended
So great all the photos when batch importing don’t lay on each other, strange you have to flip the hd switch to have images imported in HD happy it’s there just strangers it’s not just on. It does works, strangely “HD” photos I get from bing or google still show up pixelated but that could be the photo itself and not the app, the app does brighten the images imported, when compare from In app and the photos app. Found rotating accidentally should be a icon like the flip or b/w filter and then rotate from there, also I would like to be able to rotate individual images and not just the whole board, aside from that I do like the intuitive rotating gesture just needs a better spot or icon, sadly can’t do multiple select, love the new eye icon being apart to move around the board without any of the ui, still solid fluid stable app just like before still highly recommend
Godthisgamesucks - Great app with lots of potential
I’ve started using this app and it’s perfect for the artist on the go. I’m pretty sure it’s made by the same group that created PureRef, but I could be wrong on that. The app has a great feature that allows you to organize different categories of images. And within each of these has tools that are pretty intuitive. It handles images and gifs very well. And gifs play continuously in the app. My only complaint is that the copy link option doesn’t work for other apps on my phone. Pinterest and instagram as examples, or at least I don’t think it does. However, the copy link option brings in high res quality images from Google images, so I can’t complain to much. The app is still in early development and I’m hoping that this could be implemented in the future. For about $2 the app is well worth the price.
LeonBravura - This is super intuitive
One of my biggest frustrations with apps are bad ux that you need to look up how to do things. Everything in this app that you think should work a certain way does. You hit the ground running with this app. It's easy, it's got great features, and if you draw on the iPad or work in the industry like me it's an amazing app to have and totally worth the low price. Can't recommend it enough.
baomii - Amazing reference board app for artists!
This is everything I’ve ever wanted in a reference board app! You can collect and organize all your images with customizable art boards and there’s even animated gif support! I’ve been using this app to help create my illustrations and it’s been an incredible tool. VizRef works great alongside Procreate and other drawing programs! I highly recommend it for art hobbyists, students, and industry professionals!
TrippyArtist - Finally!!!
For years artists have been looking for a tool like this on mobile! The developer is a professional concept artist and listens to feedback from artists to implement new features. This tool is off to a great start and will aid both digital and traditional artists.
dougdude3339 - Great
Really simple app that gets the job done perfectly. Building a reference board is very easy and quick. All very intuitive. Only thing is I wish is that boards synced between the iPad and iPhone.
Jugfdsddghhhhh - Able to upload to cloud?
Am I able to upload my folders or images to be able to move them to my iPad VizRef app from my phone vizref app?
I just got this it’s a great app
NoelJG - Updated Review - Still Love It!
I’ve used VizRef for a while now, and I had written favorably as well the last time I reviewed this app. I want to add an additional review after the current update.
The iPad version of VizRef is CONSTANTLY open in split view alongside Procreate when I work.It’s almost become an extension of Procreate for me. The iPhone version is also a great option when I want a separate reference screen. The app is simple to use and very effective at what it’s built to do. I use this app to help keep my comics more consistent by collecting references and my previous drawings of characters or scenes all in one place. The in-app greyscale filter is invaluable. Also love that I can crop images within the app, and pause GIFs to look at specific frames. Another nice touch is that the app background more or less matches the background in Procreate. This adds to the feeling that the apps are part of each other, and keeps it from feeling distracting or visually busy.
The last update just made this already excellent app even better by adding some ways to export and save boards, which means I now have a way to backup all of my compiled references. This is WONDERFUL and about the only feature I have been missing. Thank you for creating such an excellent tool for artists! 😃👏👏👏
The Turritopsis Nutricula - No split screen functionality
I wanted to use this app on my iPad pro to help with drawing, but unfortunately, it doesn’t work with the split screen function that I so heavily rely on. If they added compatibility with this function to a future update I would probably reconsider my review.
ansirone - App Crashes
Was great while it was working. Not sure what happened but now it’s constantly crashing on both iPhone and iPad.
Gerri miku - Bug Issues
When I started to press on the app today, it would only bug out. Which not allowing me to enter and use references at all.

QdoxTT - Good app, stopped working on iPhone X
On firmware version 13.3.1 app will just crash on launch when it used to work
SKR Imaging - Use this app on all my art projects
Recently discovered and quickly became my favourite tool to use when drawing! Latest update brings autopack to iPhone and multi select tool also! HD mode is great too for referencing high res images! Keep up the great work! Thanks for giving the iPhone app an update!
Becca M. Taylor - Can’t use on older iPad. :(
I love the idea and it seems to work ok on my iPhone, but it won’t even download onto my iPad is only iOS 12.4.6. :/ I don’t plan on having an iPhone forever so unless I get a newer iPad, I won’t be able to use the app.
Yuuu12131184849591914 - App crashes the moment I click it open
It worked amazing when I first downloaded it. But now that I need to use it today, the app crashes when I click it open. A few seconds of grayish screen then it dies.
UPDATE: I deleted the app and reinstalled. It doesn’t crash anymore, but the data on there was lost. (I don’t mind since I only had one file, but maybe adding a cloud/save on phone for saving options might be a good ide)
