Great app !

It's an awesome app, you get everything that's promised in the description. Just a small thing to note - it's iOS 9 version isn't released and so it keeps crashing on my iPad and iPhone. Please provide the update and also please enable grasis editing(cropping images, effects,etc) if possible.

With the latest update of version 1.2, iDesign is getting closer to becoming 'full feature' design app on iPad. Or to an extent it's possible for any app to get closer to be one.

With addition of tools for polyline and polygon editing with newly added controls, numerical readouts to help precision of measurements, and most importantly for any design app, the facility to insert text and manipulate fonts, albeit with limited and basic typographic controls, iDesign certainly has fulfilled its promise made at the time of release of version 1.1.

I wonder though, with my stubby index finger, how far any one of these 'vector' design apps can help me produce a meaningful, professional design.

But it certainly took me back to those early days of DTP on Macintosh and assured me, with the benefit of hindsight, that it could be a promising beginning.

Fantastic iPad application for vector drawing

I was looking for something similar to Desktop equivalent of Freehand and Illustrator. I jumped into this app and bought after reading introduction. And I must say that this application has almost fulfilled my dream of what I was looking for. It has everything one could wish in an app for drawing. I think it is very good app. If you are looking for an app as a substitute for Desktop drawing app, look no further. This is the one. If anyone does know anything else as similar, please let me know.
