I use this almost on a daily base. It offers a lot for the buck. The UI can be odd at points but push yourself beyond that and it will do most basic graphical vector editing.

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.

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!

With 2.4.1, and the new plugin feature, iDraw, which was already great, is getting greater. If you do vector graphics, you can't beat the power of this fine app. It's the first app I go to for any vector graphics I need to create, and it isn't really missing too much. CMYK is still missing and a way to convert bitmap to vector. What a gem!

Looks nice, but haven't been able to try it since there is no demo. This no demo 'buy it or leave it' tactic will hurt them in the long run. Too many times I have spent money on shareware or little company ware, that they have either closed down, abandoned, or sold out to a bigger company, and was left hanging feeling like an idlot. I am all for supporting developers, but they need to convince me to give them my money.

Below is a letter I sent to iDraw's developers. The letter contains just about everything I would put into a review so I am posting it here as well. Hi, I've really enjoyed trying out your app, it works much more intuitively to me then illustrator. I was a big fan of FreeHand and I find that I can move through your program just about as easily as FreeHand. The most important additions to me would be to add the file management options menu (that menu that comes down when you click on the title bar in programs like Pages, Preview, Sketch, etc. It has options like rename, move, duplicate.) I love that menu since it is so much easier to work with files that way then having to deal with them in the Finder. Most of the improvements could be done with the layers panel. It would be helpful to have a layer filter tool like Sketch. It's nice how you can hit Command-F and get a search box come up. Layer filtering by object attribute may help as well. I have a hard time seeing the layer previews so increasing the size of those would help a lot. A way to group the layers together would also be important. Having a rotate view tool would be very helpful to those working on a Wacom tablet. It is easier to rotate the view on the screen then it is to change the angle of your arm to awkward positions. Thanks for the great work, Kip PS I really really hope you never sell iDraw to Adobe. There needs to be more innovation with graphics software that can only come if the playing field has enough competition.

If you are a amateur user, then add a star to my rating. I deduct a 1.5 stars for its instability that can cause a loss of a lot of work if you are not careful. Overall I like iDraw, however do not try to use it for anything being exported as a PDF or saved as an .ai to be printed at a service bureau. If any gradients or special effects are used on the vectors, the resulting file will require a lot of clean up before they are press ready. I made the same design in Illustrator after having to choice but to purchase it and did not have any problems when send to the printer. The prior identical vectors & effect in iDraw, that was no more than 8 layers of simple shapes with an overall gradient on one layer and translucency took well over an hour to clean up before it was press ready which will quickly negate any savings. For light duty work iDraw works well if you can forgive the crashes, but for anything beyond home printing, the way it writes files is unacceptable. It’s disappointing that iDraw cannot replace Illustrator for anything even remotely professional especially considering bad Adobe’s business practices, bloated software and installation restrictions are. iDraw is good value and will work for anyone who doesn’t demand pixel perfect alignment, but it is no Illustrator.

My needs for a vector program aren't very demanding as I'm mostly just proofing and tweaking work, but this really seems to do the job well for me. My biggest concern was the ability to open and save .AI files which it does, even though I didn't see any mention of it. It doesn't actually export into ".ai" format but does SVG and PSD as well as the usual (PDF, JPG, TIFF, GIF, etc). I used to use VectorDesigner which was ungraciously abandoned and stopped working in Snow Leopard or Lion. Seems like a great product for the price and reminds me of Pixelator, which I love. Check out the beta.

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.

As others have noted, the lack of a free trial is a show stopper. The price is reasonable but nobody wants to spend $25 and find out the app doesn't meet their needs. As a developer, my apps are available BOTH on the Mac App Store and on my web page.

Ok, this has been a year of change in a Designing world that turns into full digital now days. My last Creative Suite from Adobe was the CS4. I've been using less expensive alternatives that do the job perfectly. Pixelmator (for Photoshop) Swift Publisher (for inDesign) iDraw (for Illustrator) and Flux (for Dreamweaver) This apps can be used by beginners as well as professionals and in my art department not either the clients, the designers or the print shops notice any change or make a simple complain. I know about Adobe fans (I was one) but even with the new Photoshop wonders the real world of publishing and design can meet the standards with this low budget apps.

Since there wasn't a demo version, but the reviews were good and I liked what I saw in the downloadable manual that's on the website, I decided to bite the bullet and buy iDraw 2.2. So far, it's been really very good for basic vector drawing needs and has opened all my simpler EPS and AI files with ease. Exported files seem good to when I pull them back into Illustrator or other apps. The UI works well (and is intuitive) and given the tiny price, it's really excellent for working on simpler projects -- especially if you use it in conjunction with the iPad version of the app (with fonts being the biggest limitation unless converted to outline when switching between the two versions). Advanced color, typeface and stroke controls are lacking, but iDraw works fine if you don't expect it to be Illustrator or CorelDraw. I probably won't use it to lay out complex illustrations, maps or diagrams, but for individual illustrations (characters, objects, logos, etc.) it's great and the import/export is reliable. I do wish it supported dropbox syncing instead of icloud, but that's quibble. Great app FOR THE PRICE.

I found this to be the best alternative to the now defunct Canvas. Moreover, it has an iPad version so that one can work in either platform and move the file back and forth. This makes my life much easier as if I have an idea when I don't have my laptop handy, I can generate it with the ipad version then carry on when I get to the laptop.

iDraw is quite pleasant to use. Despite some interface quirks and inconsistent redundancies, it is quite usable and powerful; also constantly improving. The developer is very open to suggestions and very responsive to user suggestions and bug reports. Bezier drawing and most tools are quite logical. If you've used other premium vector drawing applications, you'll be comfortable using iDraw. I bought it last year, and every new release has brought substantial improvements, though it still has a way to do to become my primary tool, it's closing the gap fairly quickly.

For what you get and what you pay for it is quite staggering, really. I purchased iDraw earlier this week and haven't stopped playing around with it. Though, at one point it made me want to jump right back into Illustrator. My bad, as I'm not really a graphics guru, and I am only now realising what a great piece of software this truly is. I'm currently retracing my old illustrator 8 (gasp!) tutorial steps along the lines of recreating the same with iDraw, mostly to help me better remember how I did stuff. The last guy mentioned its quirkiness and that's what almost made me want to abandon it. Here's what I mean... Say you are wanting to create a circle. You will notice that it will have 4 'Endpoints' well spaced out along its path. Selecting only one of those endpoints will allow you to create a gap. Choosing any of the others will collapse the circle's path. Just in case you're wondering which one that might be. It's the one I like to refer as being in the '1 o'clock' position. Oh btw, there is a way in which to create a smaller gap, but you must use the Pen + tool and place the newer endpoint ahead of the 1'o clock positioned endpoint, and it must be ahead in the anti-clockwise position. To delete it, you must first select it with the Selection tool (the 1 o'clock endpoint) and then simply hit the delete / backspace key. I'm currently having heaps loads of fun creating an abundance of Olympic rings.
