You hold stylus or one finger to the screen to fill a shape. I'm not sure if there is a color picker in the app, but there is "Color History" and you can select any color you previously used in the app from that. The most recent color is in the top left corner.
As Sebastian C. said there is fill, but eyedropper is defiantly missing. When I'm out and about I have no connectivity on my iPad so I have top plan ahead and create a colour theme before sending to the cloud and pulling back onto the iPad. It kind of goes against the whole 'work when inspiration hits you' mantra that Adobe is taking.

There is a dropper tool, all you have to do to access it is hold down on the circle that says color.
There is also a fill option. Just long-press inside the shape you want to fill.
thank you Sue, just find it, works great!

Adobe Draw is lacking twp things, fill and eyedropper.
There is no fill tool, you can long press to fill, but that isn't very useful when you have a lot of things to fill. Adobe Ideas had a fill tool, it also had an eyedropper. Both of these tools make the process easier and faster, so this is why Adobe Draw is harder and sluggish regarding the creative process now.
The fact they removed both is just proof the developers don't actually create using this app themselves and thus have no clue why these two features alone are drastically needed. For those saying this is a good app, sorry but you simply have not tried to create anything of any complexity with it. This app as it stands now is a joke. The fact I can create faster and easier in Adobe Ideas the original incarnation of this app and now it's highly unusable. Not to mention other lacking features they removed like email a PDF, no portrait orientation mode, and a layer limit of 10 makes the app so limiting as to make it barely usable for anything serious.
A digital app should have more flexibility than analog, why limit layers and zoom, it's digital. Why no PDF support? Forcing CC to move files is no only cumbersome it's wonky at best.
But at this point Adobe doesn't give a crap. They aren't developing this for real pro users, it's a noodle app developed by noodle-minded engineers who never create anything other than a frustrating experience for users who try to use it for pro illustration.
I'd love an engineer to pipe in and explain rationally why removing the eye dropper tool was a good decision? Seriously, if that was decided upon then you have to have a great reason for doing it. If not the idiot who made this decision alone should not be developing mobile apps because this one lacking feature brings this app to it's knees in terms of complicating the creative process. Digital apps should never complicate, they should ease creation. You managed to reduce productivity with this app.
It really is astonishing how bad this app is considering a billion dollar company developed it. And your support in this forum is an absolute joke.
there IS a color picker. mantained pressed the color pool on the tool bar
and it shows up
you saved my life i was going crazy trying to find this
Thanks for the tip on the area fill. I had an inquiry though, can you choose patterns or custom colors? (I.e. fabric swatches) for area fill?
I was just about to respond to your other post (Filling shapes with pattern in Adobe Draw App.) No, unfortunately it's not possible to fill with patterns. You can, bring custom colors into Draw through Adobe Capture CC though (those can be accessed through the Color menu):
Let me know if that doesn't make it clear.
Thank you so much!
