Much more often than not, I end up using Graphic over other popular and highly rated graphics apps I have. It's easy, intuitive, and produces great results. Great time saver.

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.

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...

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!

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.

Hooray! I have finally found a Drawing Package (Vector Programme) which is easy to use and learn. I have been looking for this since MacDraw (Claris Draw/Appleworks) days. Terrific! Now if this developer could also develop a Phots***p replacement all would be great.

2.4 is a pretty large update. Don't let the modest version number fool you. Now includes support for sub layers!! The ability to copy out to another app and choose which file format you want to copy to is also a plus. I am very excited to see where this app is headed!

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.
