My favourite vector app
No vector app on iPad has it all yet, so I keep a few, but this is my favourite. Partly because the devs put a reasonable price on it, but the feature set and implementation is great too.
All my work is gone
As you can guess frame title that all the designs that I had made before the latest update is all gone if you can tell me that I can get it back and how to, I'd be very pleased! if not you must understand just how frustrating it is that all my work is gone! I hope there is a solution to all this!
Still not impressed
Of all the vector design apps, this one promises the most and delivers the least.
The UI is simple and clean, but with fundamental flaws. For instance, users have been asking for the ability to place a line multiple times without having to return to the menu each time.
Problems persist with the ability to place lines on a page, without moving the page.
After wrestling with the app for a hour, I finally give up.
