This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
VectorSNAP turns your photos into vector images. You can scale them to any size and they will stay smooth and sharp. Vector images are great for making posters, T-shirts, logos, tattoos and graffiti stencils.
VectorSNAP traces your images to SVGs directly on your device. It allows you to save out as either SVG files or PNGs.
It has loads of funky pixel and vector filters and a new advanced colour lab to breath life into your artwork.

What's New in Version 3.1
The focus in this release has been on improving your creative workflow. This means added support for sharing your designs with other apps, such as Camera+, Fragment or Union or any other app that supports PNG or SVG files. Moving between apps has never been easier.
We have partnered with Adobe and added support for the Creative Cloud. This means you can quickly upload and download your designs, moving seamlessly between VectorSNAP and programs like Adobe Illustrator or Adobe Photoshop, and back again.
In the browser menu there is now a Creative Cloud browser where all your images are accessible to VectorSNAP.
There is also added support for higher image resolutions for pixel images, up to 2400x2400px on iPhone5+ (1600x1600px on iPhone4S-). This means your images will be larger and of better quality.
Multilayered compositions. One of the most intricate ways of using VectorSNAP is to save out SVGs at different stages and combining them again later. Previously VectorSNAP would always add the background colour to your SVGs by adding a background frame. When loading them again they would not be transparent. This is now made optional so you can create stunning layered compositions.
Hard to use and produces garbage results
There's a lot of just pressing buttons to see what happens because nothing is explained. And the results are always blobs or clusters of dots and lines. There's no fine tuning to speak of, just instant conversions from your photo or drawing into shapeless black garbage. I really regret buying this app and it annoys me that in 24 hours some of the features will be TAKEN AWAY unless I pay even more, as if I'd be dumb enough to pay money a second time for an app that basically produces unusable garbage.
This is a perfect example of why there needs to be an instant refund option in the App Store. 30 seconds after launching it I realized I'd been suckered. Don't make the same mistake! Spend your money elsewhere.
Limited but does vectorizing well
This may not have bells and whistles, but it is a really nice and ESSENTIAL app to have if you want to make icons, simplifications of drawings or silhouettes. Worth getting.
This app does absolutely nothing anyone would have a use for. The vector tracing is awful -- doesn't handle detail at all. I tried to trace a black line drawing and resulting image was not usable.
