iDraw Editor's Review

With time, number of third party apps for Mac OS is growing. Mac users no longer need to be restricted to apps made by Apple nowadays. If you want a feature rich app for top notch vector drawing or illustration for Macs, iDraw is a worthy contender. It may not be a replacement for the vector artwork behemoth Adobe Illustrator but puts up a formidable performance nevertheless. In fact, there are not as many suitable vector apps for Mac users as raster graphics programs.

iDraw runs on Macs with OS X 10.6.6 and subsequent versions. The app is now compatible with Macs with Retina display. On launching the app, you are given an option to check its online user guide. If you want, download a PDF copy from the company website for offline access. The user guide is very useful and beginners will be able to create compelling artwork if they utilize it.

Strength of iDraw over rivals is its uncluttered and sleek UI. The standard vector toolbar is placed at left side of the UI and the large canvas is located at the middle. The tabbed file makes working with multiple documents at the same time simpler. It does make the dark UI resemble that of a web browser.

iDraw integrates with iCloud and this is beneficial if you use iOS devices. The iPad app is also handy and offers moderate range of features. In the app, you get nearly all tools for creating stunning vector artwork. The range of brushes and tools is impressive. The snapping to grip and objects works like charm. iDraw supports Booleans just like any top notch bezier drawing application.

The app comes with a Pen tool to make editable Bézier curves and edit in-built shapes easily. You do get a number of widely used geometric shapes. There is option to create and tweak multi color radial and linear gradients. You can also apply effects like inner glows and drop shadows.

The app works well with SVG for both export and import. You can also import Photoshop files with multiple layers and PDF files without any issue. You can work with CMYK mode. However, one area where it lags behind rivals is typography.

Positive Points:
•    Sleek, uncluttered UI.
•    Excellent toolset and brushes.
•    Support for PSD and SVG format.
•    Supports CMYK mode.

Negative Points:
•    Typography tools not robust.

Conclusion:
iDraw is a feature rich and versatile vector drawing tool for Mac users that comes very close to the prowess of pricier rivals like Illustrator. Its dark UI is pleasing and intuitive. The users get all tools and brushes needed for creating professional looking vector art. Snapping to guides and grid works very well. The user guide is also excellent and has enough material for both newbie users and veteran ones. You can work with SVG and PSD files without any issues. The app also lets you work with PDF files. Apart from some weaknesses in typography section, this app offers enough bangs for the bucks.

Rating: 3.5/5
