Agodtut's Review of Graphic For IpadReviewed on 9/27/18 2:50 PM
This is a really good app to have but it could have more usable features for artists who work in vector a lot. I wish that they give this a huge update with new features and merging capability’s. They should gear this a little closer to adobe illustrator and the would have a huge impact on this market. Especially with the market releasing new apps for vector like Affinity Designer.
45magnum's Review of Graphic For IpadReviewed on 9/26/18 10:29 PM
I really like this app. It was probably the first truly pro level app that I have used, which felt just as at home on the iPad as it does on my MacBook Pro.
paperscenery's Review of Graphic For IpadReviewed on 9/14/18 5:41 AM
If you've been looking for a real equivalent to Illustrator for iPad, this is it. As close to fully-featured as you could ask for $9, Graphic has been able to do everything I need to do in terms of vector work on a tablet. You can even import fonts via Dropbox and edit type. I nearly bought a Surface Pro or a Cintiq just to have a tablet OS that would support Illustrator. Instead, for a very small cost, I can now draw on my 5 year-old iPad using a generic stylus. Amazing.
jrichardw's Review of Graphic For IpadReviewed on 9/13/18 6:31 AM
I can’t believe this app doesn’t have a magic wand or any kind of selection tool. There’s no lasso selection, nothing! There’s also no way to set a background color for a layer, or to simply fill the layer with color. Very disappointed in this app.

OK, who was the moron who changed the name of this app from iDraw to Graphic??? How am I supposed to find any specific help for this app on google by typing a generic word like Graphic? Other than that please give us “Envelope Distort”. I will pay you extra $5 bucks.
gh0stbunny's Review of Graphic For IpadReviewed on 7/27/18 12:44 AM
The closest thing to Adobe Illustrator you will find for iPad. You can do so much with this, it’s great. It’s got good export options and file sizing/resolutions, and is Bluetooth keyboard compatible too (great for shortcuts). The only things I wish they’d add are the two-finger & three-finger tap gestures for undo/redo shortcuts, to help with quicker workflow, and the ability to drag guide lines from the ruler bars (or, if they have this, I haven’t been able to find it). I also hope one day they will add a Radial symmetry drawing grid, like Procreate has added, because I’d rather use Graphic to create things like mandalas etc.
NOTHERNAMEAVAILABLE's Review of Graphic For IpadReviewed on 7/1/18 11:30 PM
OMG I read the reviews for this app, and like the others, it promises to function just like Illustrator and Corel Draw. I was skeptical. I have 10 apps that said the same thing. HA but it’s Happiness and rejoicing over here instead. THIS IS IT, the reviews are true. Small learning curve and it’s everything Illustrator was. I wanted to cry after I designed my first project. I couldn’t afford a monthly subscription to Creative Cloud anymore and have been in a slump looking for something like this. THANK YOU THANK YOU. They got it right!

Stefan Johnsson's Review of Graphic For IpadReviewed on 6/3/18 3:23 PM
There's not that many good vector apps. Most of them are lacking basic functions. Like a functional way to put text on a path with kerning. Graphic is the best I have used, but it is still lacking a basic function for me. You can't askew a text or object. Normally you do this by simply holding and dragging a corner, but not in Graphic. Very strange to not include that feature. The interface feels a bit outdated and a rework of the would be great. Gestures is another thing that would make it much better. At least two finger to undo and the ability to rotate the canvas. Lastly, why set a limit on how big a font can be? It’s vector so it should not matter.
MBBeasley's Review of Graphic For IpadReviewed on 6/3/18 1:37 PM
The brush tool in this app is a frustrating joke. Stroke widths are all over the place and palm rejection is extremely bad when using an Apple Pencil. Very disappointed with this app across the board.
flippp's Review of Graphic For IpadReviewed on 6/24/18 7:13 PM
I now use illustrator after using freehand for years. Was hoping this would work on my iPad Pro but it's not intuitive at all nor does it work as expected in many if not all situations. You might as well shoot yourself selecting objects in a complex drawing. No grid tool that I could find -I hate this app

This app is well made with some major glitches. It shuts down when I try to send files with the various options given. It also shuts down during use. It would also be nice if the user can rotate his or her work with two fingers. Please correct this issue because I currently am done with my work but cannot save it. Otherwise thank you for your time and effort and beautiful app.

I absolutely love this app! I love how you can adjust the lines to correct themselves ever so slightly and the use of layers is very easy to use. One thing that bothers me is the fact that the pen tool applies itself whenever I’m using the pencil tool and it drives me crazy having to keep changing it over. Other than that the app is very fun to use!
Q|X Perception's Review of Graphic For IpadReviewed on 5/3/18 10:56 PM
Thank goodness someone did this! I have been a life long user of CorelDraw, and more recent Illustrator user, and have bought (sadly) over 20 Apps declaring to be ‘vector apps’. This is the first one that has true placement snap control, detailed control of vector points/nodes and geometry, capacity for controlling and combining paths, full alignment control, and a user interface equivalent to desk top packages. I recently went ‘mobile’ relying on iPadPro, but had to always boot up the desktop for vector work - now, with this App, I can genuinely create architect diagrams, vector illustration for print output, etc., from within this App - it it took me just one night to learn/use the controls. It’s not ‘perfect’, but it’s clearly 5-star compared to others. I’d say (if you are a CorelDraw user) it feels equivalent to CorelDraw v.7-8...so brilliant for iPad, and very functional but also has room to grow.

I like this app very much. The only reason I did not give it 5 stars is because it does not have any fonts I need for my logo or the ability to use with AnyFont. This would give users the ability to use any fonts they want. If it can be used with AnyFont can someone tell me how to do it. Thank you.

Richboi11's Review of Graphic For IpadReviewed on 4/28/18 11:50 AM
What an amazing app. I love using this for my designs, it is intuitive and incredibly powerful. One major issue I’ve been facing is when I try to export the image, the app crashes almost instantaneously while it is “preparing” the export. Well, what is the point of going through all of the hard work of designing if I can’t even get it off the app? Hope this is fixed soon!

Werdrath's Review of Graphic For IpadReviewed on 4/2/18 3:30 PM
This is set as the best vector app. I wont argue there. This version has a bug. See below for the cause..its not a big deal. Older note: You can not rename any documents. Everything you type says there is already a document named that. So everything stays untitled. This is terrible for organization. Please fix. Update with more issue details - I found The actual situation is caused by me using ‘1/4’ in the title. The / is what causes it to say a document with that name exists. I do realize using / in a file name is taboo so i wont do that. I just wanted you to know that THIS is the mechanism that causes that error message. Never hurts to know bug locations.
grape_ape_grape_ape's Review of Graphic For IpadReviewed on 4/19/18 10:32 PM
This app gives you a nice selection of tools to work with, so much so that even if the prospect of drawing using vectors intimidates you, don't worry you can get by just fine after spending just a bit of time with it.

Werdrath's Review of Graphic For IpadReviewed on 4/14/18 3:22 PM
And time and time again i think its an app issue and turns out its a user issue. My old review isnt showing, so here is a new one. Its great. It may take you a moment to get used to it if moving from Illustrator but everything is there. My issues all turned out to be my stupidity. 1. I couldnt get pinch and zoom to zoom to one side of the canvas closeup....if you have this problem, confirm if your ACTUAL CANVAS BOTTOM LAYER is smaller than the image you have on top of it. Some how i resized my canvas to a smaller size than the background image i put in to draw over...glad i figure that out. Hope this helps others. 2. I was having a renaming issue....it was me...dont use / in the filename or it gives you a wonky error message of it already being named that...again..my oops. I cant really think of anything else. It just really works, and you have to realize everything you need is there....it just might take a minute of digging to locate what you need. Keep using it and like every program you will get fast. Im glad this app is available. Thank you!
Dedwarmo's Review of Graphic For IpadReviewed on 4/1/18 8:20 PM
I’ve tried a couple other vector graphics apps. This one reminds my most of Inkscape or Illustrator. Put your shapes in different layers. Edit curves. Change points on paths from smooth curves to sharp angles. Draw strokes with tapered width. Add blur. Adjust transparency. Output at high resolution. Export to SVG. Use one shape to cut out part of another shape. Combine two or more shapes into a single shape or temporarily group shapes together for easier movement.
illustratoruser's Review of Graphic For IpadReviewed on 3/8/18 8:56 PM
When I first open the app I tried to open a Ai file, it would not open. So I created a new project with the custom size. At first the app was great, It is set up a lot like illustrator which I love and made simple things easily but as I got my detailed into my work the app repeatedly froze and crashed. Very disappointed in this.
M. DG's Review of Graphic For IpadReviewed on 3/23/18 3:46 PM
No lasso selection tool! Very difficult to select items. No dedicated I-pencil support. Palm keep drawing lines when resting on screen using pencil. Microsoft Paint had a lasso tool in Windows 3.1.1 in 1995. I hope that this program adds a tool that can identify the borders of an item and allow me to copy it, crop it, or delete it would be available by now. I thought this was standard 20 years ago. For example if I had a small black star drawn inside a large blue circle I would expect a lasso around the blue circle to copy to the edge of the blue circle and encompass all of the interior including the black star but if I were to use the lasso inside of the blue circle but outside of the black star, the lasso would select the edge of the black star only and no portion of the blue circle would be selected. Even better if your edge detection could grab onto items with sight variances in shade. Such as a wheel in a photo of a car, or a picture frame in a photo of a wall of picture frames.

I am really pleased to see the new developer - Picta - giving this app so much love. There have been more updates from Picta in the past 3 months than the previous owner (Autodesk) did in the past 3 years. And the updates have been substantial including important new features as well as bug fixes. I've been playing around with the new Pattern Fill feature using both images and vectors. Impressive, and likely to come in handy in the near future for me. Thanks again to the team at Picta for all the hard work!

amc135's Review of Graphic For IpadReviewed on 2/19/18 2:59 PM
I just purchased this app for my iPad after reading stellar reviews because I was looking for an alternative to Illustrator and Adobe’s subscription service that I cannot afford, as I am just a hobbyist. I was excited to see that this was offered for iPhone and Mac as well, but when I went to download it on my iPhone, I was very disappointed that I would have to pay again. I then looked up the price for my Mac, another $30. I don’t mind the $30 price tag, that’s great for the software, but I would prefer not to be nickel-and-dimed for all iterations, or for that to at least be advertised upfront instead of just saying you can access everything on your Mac and iPhone. I feel a bit duped, but I will probably still pay the $30 to get this on my Mac since, as I said, I can’t afford an Adobe subscription and this seems like a great alternative according to reviews. Just wish advertising was upfront about this.
TheREALDJMac's Review of Graphic For IpadReviewed on 2/16/18 5:28 PM
Pro Illustrator, see my work in Mountaineering: The Freedom of the Hills 9th Edition, published 2017, and other publications. My specialty is technical rock/ice climbing art. Former Art Director at Climbing Magazine. This is an amazing program, and definitely a professional level tool for the iPad Pro and Apple Pencil. Based on my experience using Adobe Illustrator since the early 90’s. I would LOVE to see a 2 finger touch undo added to its abilities. It’s become an instinctive move for me using my iPad to create art in other drawing programs. Please!

SuperGroker's Review of Graphic For IpadReviewed on 12/3/17 2:49 PM
This and the matching OS X app WERE the two best 3rd party apps in the store. Then Autodesk bought them, and let it die on the vine, as they do with nearly all their apps, ensuring the pointless destruction of the ipads best illustration suite. At this point, this app running on an iPad Pro, can’t handle the Apple Pencil without a considerable lag at the start of a line, ensuring your endpoints never match up, making it useless for drawing with any detail. So now we wait, with our thousand dollar “Pro” sketchpads, for Affinity Designer Mobile, which they're not even working on yet, to try to get the performance that MS’s miserable Journal app had on their clunky old tabletPCs in 2002. Yay.
Dedwarmo's Review of Graphic For IpadReviewed on 12/29/18 1:28 PM
Graphic This is the app I use 90% of the time for 90% of my vector drawing needs. It opens faster than Affinity Designer and has all the tools I need right up front in easy to find panels. For a long time if you wanted to do vector illustration on a Mac you had two choices: Inkscape or Adobe Illustrator. Inkscape only worked if you knew how to use MacPorts or Homebrew and Illustrator cost more than a Beyoncé concert ticket. Now we have Graphic and others. We live in good times.

Pigumon's Review of Graphic For IpadReviewed on 12/29/17 8:12 AM
They seem to only be making it "new os compatible". Other than that, no feature updates, improvements, or additions. This app sorely needs "command", "option", and "shift" functions. Many simple basic vector graphic functions are still missing.

JFR-19's Review of Graphic For IpadReviewed on 12/25/17 8:36 PM
My normal rating is 5 stars. But the latest update won’t load if you have too many files. I’ve been using this for years and have 900 MB from hundreds of files. Now all I get is a blank gray screen then the app crashes. The developers have been great in helping figure out the issue. At first I thought it was the new iCloud feature, but we narrowed it down to the number of project (.idraw) files. They’re working on a fix, hopefully by end of year — just a few days. In the meantime, I used iExplorer to save the project files to my iMac, delete and then reinstall the app, then use iTunes to transfer only some of the files back into the app. Thanks for the help, Bogdan!

Roaming Dutchman's Review of Graphic For IpadReviewed on 12/25/17 10:34 AM
Used to love this app even when it was still called iDraw. Easy to use and flexible and for most illustrator work quite sufficient. However, it seems to be loosing functionality with iOS upgrades but the app development not keeping up. Quite a lot more crashes too. A shame as it is definitely a five start app in potential. Update 23 Dec Emailed the developers about my concern that this app seemed abandoned. To my surprise I got a reply the same day saying they were working on updates for the various versions of Graphic and that they would become available soon. Next day I got an email saying they had updated the iPad version. Glad to know this app is back on track. For that 5 stars. So far everything works great and Dropbox support is back too! Thank you!!
vriley's Review of Graphic For IpadReviewed on 12/24/17 5:06 PM
When the iPad Pro and Apple Pencil came out, there was a spate of articles by graphic designers about how the platform wasn’t ready for professional work because the Adobe iOS apps were so limited. It’s a shame they never looked beyond Adobe and tried Graphic. Graphic is the only professional level vector graphics app available for iOS. I recently tried to use all the other apps I could find (iDesign, Protosketch, Bez) for a project and each one had a fatal flaw: instability, lack of a proper pen tool, limited export resolution, poor UI, inability to maintain aspect ratio while drawing, etc. Graphic is stable, exports in high resolution (haven’t found a limit yet), and has every tool I’ve needed to do anything I’ve ever wanted to do. I have professional level vector apps on my Mac that I never use because Graphic on iPad is so much better. My thanks to the Graphic developers; my iPad would be far less useful without it.
RedDragonTim's Review of Graphic For IpadReviewed on 12/23/17 9:14 PM
I regularly use this app to draw up woodworking projects. Perhaps my only ‘want’ with the app is support for 3-view and 4-view drawings and multiple page drawing sets (e.g. detail view on a separate page). Other than that I’ve always been able to get done what I needed to do without problems. That’s worth 5 stars to me.

I’d thought this app had died an untimely death with the transition to iOS 11, but now we’ve got that PLUS Smart Keyboard support. I’m changing my review to 4 stars because I REALLY do everything in this app. I’ve gotten so used to the touch interface, all I use the Mac version for is acquiring and converting differently formatted files. I save to iCloud, open on my iPad Pro, and do all the finishing there. Plus, my iPad Pro is ALWAYS with me, so if I need to make any minor changes, I don’t have to wait to get back to my MacBook Pro.

JoePeterWilson's Review of Graphic For IpadReviewed on 11/7/17 3:04 PM
It’s great and fully-featured enough to almost entirely replace Illustrator for me, but this app has not had an update in 11 months. In that time, we’ve had two series of devices with two chips (A10X in the iPad Pro and A11 Bionic in the iPhone) and an entirely new OS update in iOS 11. The app also crashes a LOT. It’ll just up and freeze, or just flat out exit. Some file types you’d expect to be able to import are not importable. I want this to be as amazing as I know it can be, but I’m likely going to switch to Affinity Designer when it eventually comes out. Very disappointing from such a promising app.
Calii425's Review of Graphic For IpadReviewed on 11/5/17 5:20 PM
Overall, this is a pretty great app. Not quite as full-featured as illustrator, but at a much smaller price, it’s totally worth it. My one big complaint is that large files always seem to crash the app when exporting. It’s frustrating to spend time working on something then to not be able to share it in the way you want. 😭

eatcake's Review of Graphic For IpadReviewed on 11/28/17 2:54 AM
I use illustrator on my Mac and thought that Adobe’s Illustrator version for the iPad would be wonderful. It’s NOT. It’s missing one of the most basic tools - the Bézier! This app has that tool. I do mostly line drawings and I’m really loving this app - it’s simple to use. The only thing missing is the ability to turn the canvas. I find when I’m drawing I do that quite a bit instead of having to turn my iPad.
J Giltner's Review of Graphic For IpadReviewed on 11/24/17 5:24 PM
They have the vector aspect right, but no gesture controls (2finger tap undo) that all others are using puts this behind the curve. Color palette should look and feel fun to use on the iPad Pro. But this is a bare bone no frills app.

This has been a decent, serious iPad app since it was ported, but is not as good as Illustrator (which I can't honestly assess 1:1 on an iPad, since I don't have AI for iPad. [Desktop] Graphic app is not an AI-equivalent on desktops). The price point since Graphic first came out as iDraw has been very nice. The interface has a learning curve from other apps, but not seriously worse than others. Getting documents to a desktop is a pain, needs to support Document, or Apple's new iOS FILE folder. A number of features in Illustrator are not supported, but for light work with vector splines this is adequate, so long as you don't need the advanced stuff. Guides, clipping, pathfinder joining, compound curves & the like hopefully addressed in future releases. I don't feel I could work with this as my regular working app if use is professional, but for lighter work, or occasional work its worth a buy. Dowload the User Guide & review that to see if its a good fit for you?

So much fuzz for making some cosmetic changes to the latest version. Implement Envelope Distort for altering the shape of the text please!!

Amazing app for vector graphics please keep it up

This is my go-to vector app. The developer is extraordinarily responsive and proactive. If you can imagine it you can do it with this app.
Artisan Slimm's Review of Graphic For IpadReviewed on 11/14/18 10:30 PM
This app is well made with some major glitches. It shuts down when I try to send files with the various options given. It also shuts down during use. It would also be nice if the user can rotate his or her work with two fingers. Please correct this issue because I currently am done with my work but cannot save it. Otherwise thank you for your time and effort and beautiful app.
Isabol's Review of Graphic For IpadReviewed on 11/13/18 9:20 PM
This app looks like it could be extremely useful. Unfortunately, the very first thing I tried was to create a gradient using a box. Didn’t like the original result, pressed undo and the app crashed. Reloaded, tried the same thing, crash. The only “special” thing I have is the keyboard attached to the latest 12.9” iPad Pro. Please help figure out why the undo is crashing so frequently. Hopefully it’s just related to the gradient setup? I’ll update my review as I get more information and use out of this.
World = Ignis's Review of Graphic For IpadReviewed on 11/13/18 5:40 PM
I adore this app. I use it for everything, from designing for work or just messing around when I get bored. As a graphic designer I love having the capabilities of using across all of my devices. From being able to switch back and forth between my computer and my iPad for the actual designing purposes to making last minute on the fly touch ups on my phone. This app gives me the capabilities to do everything that I need to and more. It is my go to for logos, T-shirt’s, as well as making ads. The only thing that could make it better s if I had the capabilities to separate my work into folders. I do a lot of different things for multiple people and being able to separate things into folders right there in the app would make my life so much easier. Would defiantly recommend this app even with the lack of proper organization.
sherlockman's Review of Graphic For IpadReviewed on 11/13/17 6:12 AM
Not one single update since purchasing six months ago. I watch as all other apps continuously update such that any advantages graphic had are now mundane features. I really like this app but increasingly I feel I’m on a sinking ship. Please at least update so app works better on iPad Pro dual screen, and other issues which need tweaking, like dealing with gaps on fills for instance. Please don’t forget your iOS customers :-)
Meadroit's Review of Graphic For IpadReviewed on 11/12/18 4:14 PM
I love this program, use it daily. However, it’s been getting buggy! I updated yesterday, and now I can’t name any of my new files, as it says the name is already being used (which it isn’t). Also, resizing a canvas is not reducing the image along with it, as it used to, and I can no longer see my images off the canvas, which was vastly helpful for placing objects to be used in my paintings! Please fix these things, and I will be so thankful, and restore my 5 star rating! I wish you would have left the tools in their original spaces, as it was much more expedient for my regular routine use.
B573xsih-robot's Review of Graphic For IpadReviewed on 11/12/18 12:15 AM
App crashes occasionally, usually when using the color picker or if you tap too quickly. It does not auto-save work, so I’ve spent many hours redoing work that was lost to the app crashing. I don’t want to have to back out of the drawing to save it every five minutes. Apparently there is no way to set up auto-save. Also, there is no way to select layers in the drawing itself so you have to search through each layer to find the one you want. Would be totally happy with this app, as well as the price, if I hadn’t lost so much work.

I absolutely never write a review but I felt compelled to this time. I cannot say enough good things about this app. I purchased it yesterday and created 2 logos for my company. Super happy and I’ve hardly explored it. Kudos on this one.
Lrich82's Review of Graphic For IpadReviewed on 11/11/18 9:04 AM
The newest update has the app crashing frequently, but not so frequently that I’m not losing significant amounts of work each time it crashes. I like the new user interface and all but having to continually start my work over is not gonna fly, especially considering I have Vectornator Pro also which I can do everything I need on. I have had this app for years and prefer it over any others but this bug must be fixed quickly.
Dr peanut's Review of Graphic For IpadReviewed on 11/11/18 6:43 PM
I love this app. After years of hand drafting my designs and lots of failed attempts at learning Inkscape, Graphic helped me take my workflow digital.
pdspdspds's Review of Graphic For IpadReviewed on 11/11/17 11:20 PM
This used to be an excellent tool, but it hasn’t seen an update in nearly a year as of this writing, and is effectively useless on iOS 11. Enabling iCloud appears to delete all its files and makes it impossible to save new ones, and basic file management functions such as renaming are inoperable when iCloud is disabled. Avoid this one until Autodesk gets around to issuing an update.
Slaughtered Cow's Review of Graphic For IpadReviewed on 11/10/18 10:13 PM
The new folders are a giant step backwards. Now you can’t see what’s in your folder so now you have to open and close folders until you get what you’re looking for. Considering that this is a tool for visual creation you’d think the developers would adhere to visual use of the app.
Dedwarmo's Review of Graphic For IpadReviewed on 10/31/18 1:08 AM
I’ve only just begun to use Graphic. It has a simple, clean interface and has 90% of the tools you’ll find in Adobe Illustrator for desktop computers. As far as I can tell the only gestures used are ‘pinch’, ‘zoom’, ‘pan’ and ‘drag’. You use a single finger to drag to draw, select, move, paint, etc. The interface still relies on buttons when often a gesture or swipe could have been implemented, ie: undo and redo requires a button tap. I’m still exploring all the features so I hope I’m not misrepresenting it. If you’re looking for a more expensive and more power-packed vector drawing app check out Affinity Designer. One advantage of Affinity Designer is you can zoom into the tiniest details in your drawing. Graphic limits your zoom to 6400%. You’d think that would be enough, but I frequently find myself wanting to zoom further.

Did not get a receipt email from Apple and would like to get refunded for it, it’s not what I expected— can anyone help?
Gabby2476's Review of Graphic For IpadReviewed on 10/24/18 10:09 PM
If you are an Illustrator user this has almost everything you need and feels completely natural when using the Apple pen on the iPad Pro. Love it! Only wish I could lock an object by clicking on it (tedious to lock only by finding the layer - hoping for that in a future update)

Every time I try to export through Dropbox I get a 400 error plz fix
jyh_'s Review of Graphic For IpadReviewed on 10/22/17 9:39 AM
Almost no improvement since Autodesk bought this app., 2+ years ago (not that the original developer had done much in the 2 years before that) - Typography is for all purposes non-existent; - Images don't get exported in HD quality; - No folders to organize one's documents; - Lots of interface quirks. To make things worse, Dropbox support is now gone, since Autodesk couldn't be bothered to use the 1-year advance notice to switch to the new Dropbox calls.
ixsaraxi's Review of Graphic For IpadReviewed on 10/16/17 6:34 PM
Can no longer connect to Dropbox, linking needs to be fixed in their coding. Tried contacting them, no response.
Arnold_32's Review of Graphic For IpadReviewed on 10/13/17 11:17 AM
This app is fantastic! I’m not a pro, but need to make vector drawings every once in a while for reports/presentations. It’s a little hard to use at the beginning but I quickly got comfortable with the interface. There are some changes I would like to see though: - Dropbox integration is broken as of July 2017 and needs to be fixed - Support for the iOS 11 Files app should be added - Drag and Drop Support should be added

I'm an amateur, but I've been using a variety of vector graphics programs since Harvard Graphics in the '80's, so I have plenty to compare with. the program took great advantage of my Apple pencil. Plus, good tutorials and, wow, today I had a question about exporting and received a reply email in 9 minutes. Thanks to the creators and maintainers.

hollydolly85's Review of Graphic For IpadReviewed on 1/9/18 6:48 AM
So happy it’s finally being updated again! I was really worried when it lost Dropbox compatibility. Now everything’s back up and running. I always start my projects on this app. A computer and Wacom takes a while to get set up, then you’re tied to a desk all day. This app, along with the Apple Pencil, gives me the freedom to work anywhere I want and it’s so easy to start a project. You have all the tools of a professional graphics app. One issue, and I’m sure it will be worked out in a further update, but an old problem seems to have resurfaced. When the app crashes, which is rare and usually just happens when I tap around in the layers menu too fast, and I reopen the app, it gets stuck on a loading screen and I have to exit and renter a few times before my projects load. This is just a minor and rare annoyance, though and I have never lost much progress or any files.

I use Graphic for sports infographics on the fly. I design my templates on iPad Pro and transfer to iPad Air for ease of integrating with in-game photos. The latest update makes working with the app much easier. I use this app every day.
RhoAlpha's Review of Graphic For IpadReviewed on 1/6/18 6:32 PM
I needed an app to makes notes about the floor plan of my house, but none of the drawing or illustrating apps I already owned could handle it. I downloaded Graphic and was amazed by how easy the arrows with automatic dimensioning were to use. Made my job quicker and easier, and the plan more precise. Intuitive interface, I jumped right in and started using it after a couple of minutes of playing with the tools. Highly recommended.
sherlockman's Review of Graphic For IpadReviewed on 1/4/18 7:54 AM
After updating to latest version at first it worked for a day, then the app would inexplicably lag and freeze. So I uninstalled and downloaded fresh copy. Seems to work better so far. But is app stable? I want to give a five but can't until I'm sure new iteration is stable? This is a workhorse for me. Thanks for listening Graphic, your latest update has done away with some of the issues I had. I would love a gap filler to speed up my workflow. Thanks!
I like to calculate's Review of Graphic For IpadReviewed on 1/4/18 5:03 PM
A long time ago Autodesk acquired this app, when it was known as iDraw. In the past two years there have been no significant updates (unless renaming it to Graphic is considered an update). But now it lives again! Thank you Picta for taking the reins on this highly capable app that has so much potential! With this latest update there are already some nice improvements. It seems to load and run with more snap and vigor. Drag and drop is working reasonably well for a first pass. I am once again optimistic about this app.
jyh_'s Review of Graphic For IpadReviewed on 1/4/18 10:35 AM
So, AutoDesk injected some life back into this app. DropBox v2 is finally supported. Yeah! It was about time. There are things that this app. does very well and others in which it is desperately deficient, the main one for my personal use-case being text formatting (typography is for all purposes non-existent): - still no subscript/upper-script, - no way to control kerning, - no control of vertical spacing - obviously, forget about text sticking to a curve. Other problems concern the interface: - there should be a way to deselect an object selected in a group search, particularly since iDraw is so agressive in its group selection (any object whose bounding box remotely seems like it could be close to a selection region is picked); - no way to enforce horizontal/vertical/diagonal directions, the way a "press Shift and drag" does on most desktop apps; - (the one feature that makes me scream at and curse this app. several times a day) When you select an insertion point for text, the display gets shifted and the keyboard appears just to hide the region where the text will appear. I understand that some of these result from default behavior in iOS, but they could be overridden. For example, when a region selection selects more than one object, it would be easy to display a button "deselect" so that the next region selections or picks deselect objects from the initial group selection. To finish, some basic functionalities are still missing: - Images don't get exported in HD quality; - No folders to organize one's documents. So, all in all, I am glad that this is not a dead app. after all, and that it is functional again (with DropBox support). I would rate it a 3.5, but general good vibes push it to a 4.

Such an improvement and still the only graphic design app that is similar to illustrator!
Dechico2004's Review of Graphic For IpadReviewed on 1/3/18 2:18 PM
Now that Picta has acquired the app from AutoDesk its back as the best. What made graphic so amazing for all iPad users was the fact that it was constantly growing and getting better. A year ago it was picked up by Autodesk and left to die. However, its back. Costumer service is back to perfect. The developers get back to me ASAP when needed. I’m spending more time on Graphic than I am on Illustrator. Well done Picta!!! Purchased a second lincense today for a friend just as a think you to you guys for the great work you do. I’m so pumped! Though graphic was dying but it’s back.

Best drawing app for the iPad and even better than many PC and iMac apps. I use it for home, fun and work. Great tech support. Works really well with the Apple Pencil.
bearsgonewild's Review of Graphic For IpadReviewed on 1/29/18 6:18 PM
Started using this app recently to draw over maps for a class and overall, it’s great. But there are annoying problems, like text editing. After using the app for a while, some text becomes uneditable by any means other than completely deleting it and starting again. It’s supposed to put the text edit cursor in the text box when you double click it, but that frequently doesn’t work. Sometimes, saving the doc, closing the app and reopening will do it. Other times it won’t. 5 stars if that gets fixed.
2nd trial's Review of Graphic For IpadReviewed on 1/25/18 8:01 AM
There is no masking tool or draw inside mode which I use a lot. The pen tool is pretty smooth and the brush tool is pretty cool too. BUT the pencil tool is not working appropriately. It has smoothing even when I set it to 0%. There is a pretty significant gap between where my apple pencil is and where is line is being marked. The gap appears more when you are using short lines.
Greg-105's Review of Graphic For IpadReviewed on 1/20/18 11:28 PM
After a brief review the only thing negative I can say is that it needs a path smoothing effect for the overall path so you don’t have to work at the point level.
Lakefarm's Review of Graphic For IpadReviewed on 1/1/18 5:40 PM
And support was so prompt and very helpful in answering specific design questions. Highly recommended. Some bugs to iron out. I think it crashed on me a couple of time. Also Some UI improvements needed. But overall I was able to create excellent logos and support was very good. What more can I ask for?
