TreeSketch 3.0 was brilliant!

I say _was_ because I just discovered the hard way that it does not work on IOS8.


Any plans to update it ? Please?

I would also love to see it updated to work on iOS 8. I loved this app, and I used it often to add midrange vegetation to modo. I could even work a little closer in, subdividing the trunk with smoothing. I was working on using modo fur to create pine needles on bare tree trunks. It was a real pain to have to delete it from the iPad.

I contacted The University of Calgary and Steve Longay (programmer) and unfortunately Steve is finished at the university and off to private business ( Bllip.com ) and noone at the University program seems to want to recompile the code for IOS8, so it has been removed from the App store.

Real pity, as probably it is mostly just recompiling and making minor changes to make it run on IOS8... but that's how it is.

Personally I think a commercial version of Tree Sketch would fare better than a wine label scanning app with a very strange name (ref Bllip.com) but that's how it is. Tree Sketch is an excellent example of "Abandonware".

Miraculously enough Tree Sketch 3 does now work on iOS 9. Alas, it is still no longer available on the App Store, so you can't get new copies of it. But, if you were lucky enough to have it already, it is working again (for the moment). It is fabulous on the new iPad Pro.

So sad that it is no longer available. It is an amazing app to create "reasonable" trees in absolutely no time. It doesn't replace Plant Factory or Frog or the like for "hero" trees, but to generate quick relatively low poly trees when you need a whack of them it is amazing.

Sad to see such a great tool just disappear.

I have Treesketch 3.0 still installed on my Ipad Air 2

It did not work in the IOS 8.x versions, but started to work (with only minor issues) for all the IOS 9.x versions up to and including 9.3.5.

Yesterday I upgraded to IOS 10 and it stopped working again. (The program starts but shows only a naked starting branch (no leafs) with no response or interactivity to the Grow or rotation or drawing.

Hoping there will be an update for IOS 10 that makes it work again...

Alas it is true. Wish I had read your note before doing the move to iOS 10. Keep our fingers crossed that a future release allows Tree Sketch to work again. It truly is a great program. I've written several times to the creator of the program but have never had a reply as to whether it is being developed further or will ever be upgraded.

Thanks for letting us know. Unfortunately I also upgraded to ios10 yesterday, so mine no longer works too. Hope it gets fixed. It's fun, or was, to make a tree and then import it into one of the 3d programs.
