VectorPro is the first automatic tracing program available for the iPhone. It automatically converts photographs and graphics to vector images that can be edited in popular illustration programs. It's ideal for converting hand-drawn sketches of designs to vector art without the use of a scanner or desktop software. Now includes Dropbox support.
What's New in Version 1.3
- Major improvements to the tracing algorithm (brought over from the new Mac version).
- VectorPro Mac now available in the Mac App Store.
Can't even save to camera roll
You can't get your revised pictures out of the app, except to e-mail them. There is no option to save the picture to your camera roll, even from an e-mail. You can see the picture in e-mail, but it's unusable to download it. The pictures are in an ".svg" format (instead of jpg, tiff, png, etc.), and the only software I've found that can open .svg is Adobe Illustrator. It does not work with Dropbox. The app is not supported. Total waste of money. You've been warned.
Great work here!
I've messed around with this app quite a bit over the last week or so and it's really great. Love the improvements, keep them coming! I talk about this app in episode 1 of The Daily Appster podcast.
What a complete waste.
"This app uses a version of Dropbox integration that is no longer supported."
Does exactly what I wanted to do: autotrace my sketches. Then it is impossible to Dropbox them, effectively making it useless. There is no useful way to open your vectors here aside from emailing it to yourself and using a computer. But the point of the app was to keep my workflow on the ipad/iphone.
10 bucks better spent on a pizza.
