Maybe others will disagree, but when a program is called "Something Draw" I'm expecting a vector based application. This is a pure paint application. Renaming it Vanilla Paint would be a step toward truth in advertising, IMHO. mt

I don't believe it I had downloaded ipaint using latest snow leopard and latest patches - that crashed twice in two minutes. Just downloaded vanilla and same thing has happened... will resort to the penc il and scanner I think!

Vanilla is still just as ugly as it's always been. Whether or not it's right that the developer of iPaint commented on a competing app is debatable, but this isn't: iPaint is much better.

Note: this is NOT a draw (vector graphics) program (like the original MacDraw, Illustrator, EazyDraw, etc.); like "Draw"It, it is a paint (bitmap graphics) program (like the original MacPaint, Photoshop, etc.).

Are you trying to make this look like a REALBasic app? I suggest the dev. just uses standard text boxes and buttons without customizing them.

Running 10.4.11. Vanilla 3.0 tells me it can't run in this architecture.

F1RACER328 if you actually read the "about application" you find it does have credit to Paintbrush. Also how does anything you mentioned, such as the "SUFeedURL" which lets be honest, not many people have heard of... relate to the application and its purpose. And as you have thoroughly looked at the applications source (which yes, is paintbrush) you should know that the icon is actually over 1mb in size. (may not represent the purpose of the application... but it looks bloody cool and this is not just a drawing tool its also a image editor which is nearly the same as Apple Aperture and doesn't apple aperture have a similar icon? yes -.-) Please look more carefully before commenting and please don't call other people idiots, when the idiot really... is you my friend. BACK TO THE APPLICATION. As i have already said, this application HAS POTENTIAL end of story.

Vanilla Draw has the same features as paintbrush, ugly startup/overall interface, Giza products spammed all over it, no credit what so ever to paintbrush, Didn't even get the SUFeedURL in, which means this developer is an idiot, probably stole the idea to make an app based off of paintbrush when the guy saw iPaint, i have no idea how the logo represents a painting/drawing application, drawing can mean more then the features vanilla has, under the help the Contact button is the one to the paintbrush dev, ugly overall everything, and its twice the size for nothing...

Paintbrush should have been a clue, besides it's free dimwit.
