I used to really like Create. Unfortunately, the developer has effectively disappeared into the world of iOS, concentrating on Twitter clients and the like. Create relies deeply on built-in Mac OS X technologies, but those technologies have changed in the past couple of years, and Create is frustratingly out of date. I thought Free Upgrades For Life was generous, but I also thought it would last past the introduction of the iPhone. Unless this goes back into active development again, do not buy. I hope for the best, but don't expect much anymore.

Not updated in over 2 years. When developers don't regularly update their software, I'm worried that I'm purchasing abandon-ware.

This is one of the greatest softwares for graphic designers ever. It replaces the Adobe CS4 suite for just 150 bucks. Vector drawing, advanced PDF editing, masking, multi-page layout, text-flow, layers and master layers, link back to any graphic program and even wysiwig css web editing... It is an incredible program for every day use and you come to a result very fast with drag and drop. Also the learning curve is not so steep as you only have one manual to read instead of five ! The downside is that the program didn't get any update for two years now, but it still works perfectly on Snowleopard ! So folks, just come in and try it out ! There is a more detailed review here : http://www.macuser.co.uk/labs/261499/stone-design-create-14.html Thanks for reading my review !

Running a small business I do not have the luxury of being able to outsource my web, brochure, manual, leaflet design to someone else. I have to keep a careful eye on cost. Some years ago I was lucky enough to find Stone Designs Create. I first rebuilt my company web-site then moved on to leaflets to promote my products. After this brochures and technical manuals. Today I am designing a logo. Create is also great for doing homework. Being able to do all this in one program means only one user interface to learn. Free upgrades, the important part here is upgrades, not only is Create ready to use the latest version of OSX when it is released. It is kept up to date and new features/requests are added. Take the latest version 13 updated to use CSS and output XHTML 1.0 to the web. All I had to do was open the site I had originally built in Create and output the web files as XHTML 1.0. Andrew Stones attention to detail made it simple for me to do and Creates new features keep my site up to date with the latest web thinking. Andrew is totally in tune with his client base, how they are using his software and what they wish to achieve through a thriving forum where you can quickly get answers and share ideas. Couple this with a quality manual included which is continually kept up to date. Free would be worthless without the above but in this case free is a bonus. This total product support allows me to concentrate on what I need to do to make my business work. Create has allowed me to communicate with my customers far more eloquently improving my business. Yes I can honestly say Create is part of my business success, thank you Andrew.

Everything looks great, except the Info inspector. Why does it have to be that big? There's so much unused space. Look at how Apple does the inspector in Pages and Keynote. It's so much smaller, and much nicer looking! Come on, how much time does one need to change that inspector to something with Mac aesthetic excellence?

Create is a great vector graphics application. There is a significant learning curve, but once you get started learning how to use it, even a rank amateur like me can create decent-looking graphics. It's also highly affordable!

Create is truly a gem and highly useful program for a variety of design/production tasks. Linkback support just makes it even more utilitarian especially as more and more programs start to adopt support for Linkback. [off topic] Now all we need to ditch Adobe is a bitmap editor...would love to see (a reasonably priced) Tiffany reappear.

Hugely useful, very versatile app. Really demonstrates the power of object-orientation! The UI could use some improvements, though.

Keeps improving with each (free, no less) update, no fooling. Give it a spin and see for yourself. Page layout, vector drawing, easy websites, and more.

Create is fantastic, and above all my favourite app. features include: • Create WYSIWYG web pages • Produce professional leaflets, books and flyers using the DTP tools. • Powerful vector based drawing tools rivalled only by colossuses like Freehand and Illustrator (which aren't anywhere near as nice to use) • Drag and drop philosophy for blends, patterns and effects makes for a very consistent and easy to use app. • Export to many formats e.g. PDF, TIFF, EPS etc • Customisable toolbars • Aqua look and feel - on a par with the OmniGroup ;-) Above all, the only tool you'll need for content creation.

Create is one of the powerhouses of the Cocoa app world. As it continues to mature, expect to see it become a favorite of desktop publishers.

This is a great program that I find very intuitive to use. You have to break out of doing some things the "Adobe" way and it's well worth it. A lot of power packaged in a way that isn't overwhelming and it's cocoa native.
