I've been looking for a replacement for Illustrator, and iDraw does it foe me. I occasionally have a need to work with vector files. Nothing heavy duty, just adding, editing and moving elements. iDraw may not offer all the capabilities of Illustrator, but it does everything I need and can even open my old AI files. I have happily ditched my 6-year old version of Illustrator and switched to iDraw.

Works like a charm :-) Much more efficient than Affinity, Illustrator and others.

Its pretty good for its price, if it does enough of what you need.
For occasional use, its quite good as a helper application. Can’t rip it.

I won’t say that its handy enough (to me) to use on a daily basis, if one wants to be efficient & make a living doing what it does. Of course, then you/I wouldn’t be relying on a $25 application either.

The import/export options are pretty good.
You can drop an image as svg & work it in Illustrator, or import Illustrator files to it.

Right now Graphic doesn’t seem to sufficiently rival what a n app called Canvas used to do in its day. Canvas might be a competitor for this. Or perhaps TouchDraw (even more rarely updated).

Slightly offtopic:
Canvas before it was swallowed up by another company & languished for a decade & a half. (It now has returned in stripped down form from those days, at a higher price point than iDraw/Graphic).

Its interface is a tiny bit cumbersome.

The observation someone made that this "used to be a good simple draw tool” has not changed that it remains so today, even if it hasn’t evolved in over a year.

This used to be good simple drawing tool and UI is resemble to Adobe Illustrator. But since Autodesk bought this, it hasn't been updated. It's bad sign...

In the beginning iDraw resembled a low end Illustrator alternative.
For the price its adequate & can handle simpler Illustrator functions.

As long as they don’t deadend this, it is recommended as a possibility, depending on your needs.

It does have a quirky interface, but manageable. Following more closely to Illustrator interface would have left warm & fuzzy feelings.

I have this version today & haven’t seen many updates either. As an offering from a large company, I think some enhancements are warranted, but I appreciate that they haven’t generated updates that are nothing more than cash cow minor upgrades with an upgrade fee.

Oct 30, 2015 to Jan 2017 really should have seen a little upgrade, but the price ($25) is still quite good.

More specific tools & better gridding (faster ways to change grids & snaps, etc) & more canned template sets (called “tiles” in their parlance) would be useful.

My very longtime experience is that when AutoDesk buys a competing product - they’re usually stifling affordable competition by buying up potential challengers & let the product mold over gradually. Not an uncommon practice in the world of CAD & graphic applications, either.

I would hope I am wrong in this case. They could make this a substantial player in the low end vector graphic dept.

Super graphical editor!

My fav vector editor. Looks great (Pixelmator-esque) and works fast. Although Pixelmator has a (hidden) vector editor too, this is much better. 5 stars

Great vector drawing app. Has a great looking GUI and works very smooth. That said, it sometimes cannot important adobe vector files correctly. If this could be improved this would be bargain at $25 Highly recommended.

It's got to be 5 stars! I have bought Acorn, Affinity Designer and Pixelmator in the quest to find a replacement for Photoshop and none of them have drawn me away from CS6. iDraw, however, has managed to become my first port of call for doing UI stuff with the occasional flip into Photoshop for pixel stuff and compressing output to png. Over the past few months I've been getting more and more bombs in Photoshop and am beginning to avoid it as much as possible. I know that is a vector based app but it does nearly everything I need.

Now includes support for sublayers and pasting objects inside of other shapes!! It’s easy to move objects around inside other shapes. Unfortunatly layer groupings only show a generic folder icon and not a picture of the drawing. The ability to copy out to another app and choose which file format you want to copy to is also a plus. The plugin feature is really nice. It now allows me to release a clipping path I made. While it is adding a lot of Yosemite features it still doesn’t have the standard duplicate file funionality or the quick way to rename or retag files that has been standard for many versions of OS X by now. Also doesn’t have the raster drawing tools that Affinity Designer has. Despite that I am still very excited to see where this app is headed!
