Watermark - Upgrade to remove (read review)

Downloaded the App, installed it, it opened, its easy to navigate and it works. Only catch is that any edited image over 800 x 800 (a message pops up) and tells you that you need to upgrade (pay for app).

No Rotation Option, No Scroll Zoom, Purchase is Subscription

This would be perfect, except you cannot rotate things and there is no scroll wheel zoom. This is a very unfortunate oversight. You can flip but that's not appropriate in many cases and it's a pain even when it is. This would be 5-star and I would glady buy the full version if that feature was included. This is the closest I've come to a simple '90s ClarisWorks-like drawing program that I've been searching for forever, but even ClarisWorks added the rotation option later in the '90s. And you can only manually zoom in 10% increments so it's inevitably either too big or too small.
Update: The full purchase is only a 3-year subscription but I didn't see this anywhere until after I purchased it. I wouldn't mind but I find that sneaky. Downgrade to 2 stars.

Good App. Suits my needs, but…….

It would be really nice if after you dropped in a shape, you could rotate it. Flipping horizontally or vertically is not enough. I need to be able to tilt the shape in the direction I want it to go. Other than that at the moment, I enjoy the app and I’ve created some cool pieces with it.
