Developer doesn't even bother responding to questions about the status of this app.

This app is almost certainly dead, website leads to aroundmeapp.com. No hint what happened anywhere.

Looks like Tweakersoft.com (the developer's URL) is just redirecting to AroundMe's webpage. Thanks for pointing that out! I'll disable this listing.

Was about to buy the App Store version (the sole working version) today, and lo and behold - it's gone. Vanished. Just yesterday it were there (I deliberated whether to buy it or not. At least, it cost less than DrawIt and Sketch (though more than ArtBoard), and has both an equally appealing interface and functionality… my critique is limited to their update policy, not has not remotely anything to do with the merits of the app - for I really like it), and their website worked. Now - gone. Both the app and the webpage. That's a pity…

Ditto. Now looking at iDraw, which seems to have similar features, and a UI akin to Pixelmator, which I use instead of Photoshop. Although since iDraw doesn't seem to offer a trial version, I won't be buying until I get a lot of answers from the developer.

@Robio. Or, buy Sketch instead. It's discounted; costs €23,99 this week. I believe, from Monday the discount will expire. See here: http://search.itunes.apple.com/WebObjects/MZContentLink.woa/wa/link?path=mac%2fsketch

TweakerSoft's upgrade policy doesn't appeal. The non-App Store version isn't compatible with either the Lion or the Mountain Lion.

I bought this software because I wanted a simple design application that does not require hours of tutorial.
Unfortunately this software is just the same.
Unintuitive.
Money wasted

The rating is based on the fact that Tweakersoft does not provide a free of charge update that works on newer OSX versions. Other companies that moved to MacAppstore are able to do so. Look at Pixelmator or 1Password; both work on 10.6.x and 10.7.x.

Version 1.7.0 stopped launching for me with Snow Leopard. Trashed preferences, reinstalled (non-App Store version), etc. No joy. I emailed Tweakersoft twice over last two weeks. No response.

Version 1.7.0 does not even launch on my 10.6.8 system. It hangs.

Same problem with mac os X.6.8 and lion.. and no answer from the editor about the possibility to update simply a non appstore version to 1.7.2. Incredible... Have we to buy a second time the same soft to have the right of updates ? Not very serious, Tweakersoft... Have bought artboard today !

Won't launch in Lion or Snow Leopard for me, and no reply from tweakersoft. I have files created in VD that I want to revise and it's not possible. It burns me that the devs think that I'll buy again if they stay quiet. Real professional, guys. After we paid double the app store price.

I have 1.5.2, and it's stopped working as well. Not sure when, since I rarely use VD. Maybe when I upgraded to 10.6.8? But the trial version of 1.7.0 at MacUpdate does launch.

Developer did the right thing and offered an update to current users. He needs to be commended for doing the right thing.

What? Pardon me, can one not upgrade from version 1.x to version 1.x free of charge? That's original! That sort of originality, however, doesn't precisely dictate loyalty! A very imprudent move!

Version 1.5.2 has the same features as the 1.7 on the App Store. If everyone would calm down, visit their website and read a few FAQ first instead of being negative.

@Albertross: I did read the FAQ. But it still doesn't change the fact that I have to shell out another $29.99 to fix minor bugs (see WHAT'S NEW above in the description).

I take your point but to me "exactly the same" means exactly the same in the two versions. Anyway it doesn't matter, they have added a free upgrade for all users overnight, (not through the App store). So it wont cost anything. Pays not to jump in too early like I did buying Aperture on Christmas Eve for $245AU. Apple have become remarkably generous overnight.

As of this moment, Tweakersoft has revised its update policies (or just amended them): as indicated by @AlbertRoss, now a version 1.5 VectorDesigner user won't be held back from updating to verion 1.7 free of charge, and the software will be recognised by App Store as "installed".
I must say, there appear quite a few more developers who apparently haven't (yet, I hope), made their titles upgradeable after App Store transition.
I also hope that App Store does allow practically all the OS X developers to price their applications accordingly (read: reasonably) and benefit therefrom as much as we, the consumers, do.

VectorDesigner 1.7.2 will not open a VD 1.7.2 document that was just created less than 48 hours ago. I am using OS X Lion... any similar issues?

Lots of them. I use Lion myself, and Vector Designer sometimes works, sometimes not. Force-quit and try again... and again.

What really bothers me with VectorDesigner is the developer's attitude. The program is quite good, but it is just abandoned as if it never existed. Not even a "sorry". I mean, I understand that you sometimes can't fix a problem, that you might have to discontinue a product, but this is ridiculous!
