I want to like ChemDoodle because it has a rich feature set and is relatively easy to use. Nevertheless I don't like ChemDoodle as it has a clumsy and ugly user interface; it just doesn't feel like an Mac application.
Apart from that, I would give it an overall rating of 4.5 stars. But as long as the developpers of ChemDoodle refuse to hire someone to polish the user interface, I will continue to use my old ChemDraw version which has not as many features as ChemDoodle, but has a clean user interface without dozens of different colors and shapes.
