Powerful app

Interesting app with a ton of options. As a professional tile artist working with Islamic geometric pattern, this app is quite delightful. The amount of power it has, and the huge range of possibilities is staggering. This app makes it possible for people who have no background in Islamic pattern to create beautiful designs in minutes. Outputs in multiple formats if you want to use it with a printer or digital cutter. For $10, it is a steal! Anybody playing with pattern should be fascinated and intriqued by this app.

One of the Best Apps for Mac

You have 618 tillings, and millions of combinations (probably more). The app is very easy to use, and the UI is very simple.

It also makes use of the touch-bar in MacBooks, and the creator is very aware of the app, and adding things.

As a math lover, this is a must!

If you have an interest in tiling, patterns or design, this is a great app to try.
