Honestly, this is the best app ever, and I've been ongoing using it for years without a problem on my iPad 2. Love the app and HIGHLY recommend purchase, and do not know what more they could of added in the full version. Amazing. I've been using it for literally EVERYTHING!!!

Great free app!

Considering that this app is free, it packs tons of features. I was looking for something that could import from my photos and then give me the ability to draw over the image (my purpose was for a renovation design). There's also tons of other features that I'm sure I'll find handy. Can't go wrong with free! Give it a try for yourself.

Robust and versatile, but missing one thing...

I think this app is wonderful. I can produce anything from a flow chart to a scale floor plan with this app. One thing it needs to get 5 stars from me: I need to be able to turn off the box/frame around text in order to fill out PDF forms.
