If you are looking for a chemical sketcher or an alternative to your current chemical drawing application, there is no better choice than ChemDoodle. ChemDoodle works on all operating systems (both 32- and 64-bit), has one of the largest feature sets in the industry, has the most customizable graphics, pastes scalable vector graphics into Microsoft Office, iWork and OpenOffice (among others), and can read and write all of our competitors’ formats. This is in addition to our web and mobile ChemDoodle extensions!
What's New
Version 6.0.0:

New features:

  • IUPAC naming with over 20 options!
  • Carbon nanotube and prism builders. Both zigzag and armchair nanotubes can be built. These tools quickly produce 3D geometries.
  • Auto updating labels can now be attached to molecules, so they will update with IUPAC names, molecular formulas and more.
  • Mac OS X Quick Look plugin. Easily preview all your chemical files in Finder just by pressing the space key.
  • More Windows support, including a more powerful tool for supporting Windows filetype associations with the option to unassign types, support for the MDLCT and MDLSK clipboard formats for copying and pasting between a wider array of chemical applications, and greatly improved OLE support to allow for double-clicking to edit structures.
  • More glassware, including a new organized glassware window. You can now also remove liquid from the templates.
  • Significantly improved graphics. Graphics in ChemDoodle were already very good, but we took a look at all the graphics at very high scales and resolutions. We have made sure to focus on all the little details. Bond join edge cases have been improved. Hashes are now auto centered, making recessed bonds and dashed bonds look much nicer. Other bond types have been scrutinized for the best aesthetics. Convex hull algorithms have been built for better placement of bonds around labels. Cis double bonds will now prefer the inside edge. Circles over charges now only surround the number. Aromatic ring circles now meld to the shape of aromatic circles. Arrows look nicer. You won’t find better graphics in any other application.
  • 3D coordinate generation.
  • A new 180° chain angle clean option for easily creating Lewis structures and figures with 90° angles.
  • Complex embedded ring systems (like corannulene) now clean very well in 2D.
  • Added resolution controls to the Elemental Analysis widget.
  • Meso stereochemistry support.
  • An advanced formatted text system for the system clipboard. You can now copy and paste your molecular formulas, IUPAC names and others into word processing applications with formatting intact.
  • Many other minor, but useful features: option for the delete key to decrement bonds, nominal mass counter, improvements to the TLC Plate widget, improvements to arc placement previews, alt and shift now modify attribute placement just like placing bonds, improved file chooser previews for data files, more templates for the Templates widget, and more.
  • Squashing of dozens of bugs.

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.
