AAAAAAHHHHHH!!!! SuperPaint is back! Not really—this is much better. But as the developer notes, Growly Draw is a throwback to that venerable program from the '80s and '90s. It is awesome to have this app. Sometimes you need a fine deep drawing program such as EazyDraw, but much of the time you just need to get some work done without messing around with tons of features, and that is what this program is good for. Simple, straightforward, but very capable—not so stripped-down that you can't do much of anything. There are vector drawings and bitmaps, and you can put bitmaps into the drawing layer. But this isn't just a clone of SuperPaint; it is built with all the goodness of Apple's latest technology and it even imports QuickDraw. It launches in a blink of an eye and has a good help system, which is to say, does not use Apple's built-in crapfest of a help window but uses its own speedy and informative system. I'll mark it down a bit because it is missing a constrained-draw feature while holding Shift but I'm sure that will get fixed. And it uses its own file format which can burn you in the future. Yes, it can export in several file formats but that doesn't solve the PITA if you ever have to convert hundreds of files at once in the future. I also noticed that it added extra white space around a simple image that was exported as a PDF; that is surely a bug. And I wish it wasn't free as that can give the developer a license to abandon it. But I'm sure that if it cost $5 or $10 there would be whiners. Boo, you whiners who have never written a line of code and expect fine software for free. Well, here it is.
