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.

Love it!

I use this app to create signs to use on my selling apps and it works perfectly! I like that I could pay $0.99 to remove the watermark, but wish more came with that $0.99, like more options for texts and borders. Maybe there is a few more and I just haven't noticed. So my only improvement would be to let users pay $0.99 to remove the watermark and unlock everything, because I think paying $5-6 or however much it was to unlock everything is ridiculous. Just a way for them to make more money...making me pay extra for more fonts and borders lol. I'll stick with the $0.99 version.

This app desperately needs some bug fixing and regular maintenance

This app is at the moment only barely usable for me on my up to date and most recent generation of iPhone 5s... I am even considering paying the very reasonable cost of 5$ to unlock everything...however, I have used and then been burned every single time I have used this app, sometimes after spending literally hours working on getting something JUST right, only to have the app crash every single time I go to save my creation. After the fourth time I had to throw in the towel and delete the app and I am usually loathe to leave bad reviews of anything, but I am hoping that this is not just a me issue and that the problem will be fixed soon if enough people review and bring the problem to the developer’s attention. This app has the potential for 5+ stars and I hope I can come back here and edit my review once this problem has been addressed!
