I love this app

This is a great little app. What makes it great is what is not. It is not a photoshop, illustrator, visio, or even paint clone. It is a simple diagramming tool. It is minimalist which lets you work quickly without too much thought. I used it to design my new kitchen.

I almost hesitate to suggest new features. It would be sad if this app became yet another bloated graphics app. I can see the author is very judicious in deciding what features to add. I would even hesitate to add color, because then you’re in the realm of color choosers, palettes, and other nonsense. About the only feature I’d consider requesting would be a choice of 3 line thicknesses: normal, thick, and dotted. But even that might be overkill.

Thanks for making such a useful app!

Developer Response ,

Thank you for these words! You are right, I am restrictive with the features but feature requests are always welcome and noted. Development had been postponed for some time now but is in the process of being restarted. Colors have been an ongoing request. Line thicknesses is a new request, I would need to think about how to integrate it properly.

Very simple, basic and user friendly!

I like this app because it is very simple and only does basic graph paper. No fringes, no color, no extra’s. Just lines, dots and words. I love it for planning quilts that I’m trying to design. The only thing I would like to have is the option to print with the grid in the background on my drawing. Maybe I haven’t explored the options close enough but I can’t find the option. The app only prints the lines I drew on the paper so if I left 2 squares between lines or 3 squares between lines I never know unless I label the space. Not a huge problem to label things but it would help me in my situation to have those lines available.

Thank you for your review!
Printing the grid lines is possible by using the Export-Command in the File-Menu. There, you can choose to print gridlines as well as a border for PDF and EPS.
I am glad you like the basic approach. Hopefully you do not mind if the next version of the application includes colors. :)

really enjoy this app

this is one of the few apps i have really enjoyed using. i’m a fan of simple lo-res diagrams and drawings and appreciate the features that this program has as well as like another reviewer pointed out how the features are seemingly intentionally limited. this preserves the style of the drawings you can produce as well as keeping the program simple fast and easy to use. Big thank you the the app developer!
