It’s a Toy

Did you know that these designs cannot be used like a design element you can buy at Staples? Nope. It’s weird, but you cannot use the RoadRocks graphic design elements for anything that can profit you. Is it a toy? Is is a Trojan Horse waiting for someone to ignore or not notice the copyright restrictions so when you make it big using VanillaPen, RoadRocks jumps out to take you to court for copyright infringement? It could happen.

Apple needs to insist these products show what you can only see AFTER you’ve made the purchase and allowed the RoadRocks software into your private computer network. What you can’t see when you buy and what RoadRocks hides from you is that you cannot use their products as you wish or even as traditionally intended for a graphic design element and tool. You cannot use this product for “commercial advantage or monetary compensation.”

That makes it useless to adults and just a toy.

RoadRocks hides this fact in their Terms of Use under the encircled “i” that hardly anyone looks at. That means anyone using the products in a natural way, to create graphic arts for profit promoting your brands, is up to be taken to court for infringement on a copyright.

Be warned. Something here is not kosher.

Great and bad 🙃 Greedy developers with monthly fees

Has incredible potential but can’t be used for anything commercial??? Also as a design tool lacks basic feature....mainly. Opacity/transparency slider. You can’t adjust the opacity of any elements...Why!!? I would gladly pay for the app (expensive) but still, if I had ability to change opacity of elements...and I could use them for my website (which is commercial). Sad. Almost an amazing design tool
Eventually developers will realize that the monthly model of sales won’t work long term. The greed will kill them. Instead of making a fair amount of profit and updating. The developers all lock us out of what we paid for them expecting us to pay monthly. This is pure greed and the fact that Apple allows this form of sales should be criminal. I used to buy a lot of apps. But now I very rarely pay for any apps. It will be the death of the app based system. Someone (developer) has to be the first to step up and go back to the charge to Buy system. Shame on all and if they all go under and out of business then so be it. Capitalism at its finest

Good app, needs attention!

I used to use this app all the time and it worked fabulous! I hadn’t touched it in a while and noticed it got updated. They added extra fonts and some other neat things but it came with kinks. For one my main point is the Opacity feature on the fonts no longer works. The slider is there but does nothing. I’ve deleted and reinstalled app, reset my phone, nothing changes this. I contacted app support and got no response. This is why I am giving 3 stars. It used to be 5 stars in my opinion. I don’t know if app developers read these comments, cause they didn’t respond to my message, but a nice feature to add if possible would be to also be able to adjust the opacity of the “Vanillas”! But I’d be happy with just the Text opacity being fixed! I had to knock off 2 stars for the bugs and lack of support, other than that this is an excellent app and should get 5 stars! Fix that OPACITY!
