I just found this app about 2 months ago and love it. The ability to have multiple art boards open is a huge benefit over Inkscape. I just custom made two fonts (two versions of two fonts) over the past two weeks. This was because the font making program was not easy to use but could import SVG files for the fonts. Had about 300 art boards open at one time for about 150 characters. Unfortunately i want to embed the fonts and may need to use Word which does not play nice with SVG files. Looking for a workaround now. I just read the review from 6 months ago who said this was too complex. I disagree 100%. It took me a day to figure out to unclick the fill and only use the stroke to quickly create shapes and lines like I used to do in MS word. After that it was very intuitive and very powerful. In addition to making fonts, I made a coat of arms. Will also start making clip arts for books. I am looking on how to animate the files. But I think I may have to create and export images to Procreate to animate. Or just create in Procreate.
Fantastic app for teaching
I am using Vectornator to teach basic graphic design to a small high school class. We were very lucky to get access to a small class set of Microsoft Pencils and iPads. Since I am not a professional designer, I was worried about finding a program that I could learn in order to teach, and that the students would really enjoy creating with while they learned. Vectornator is simply amazing! It has succeeded far beyond what I hoped for. The students can do so much with the app, and get really professional-looking results. They are totally engaged for the entire class period. Their skills are increasing daily. But most of all, I think they’re having fun! This is the most fun teaching I’ve had in a while too. I have used the app for a school logo I was asked to create, and I was extremely pleased with the results. I know I’m going on and on, but truly - it has been a wonderful teaching experience. I highly recommend Vectornator for beginners and education - it’s user-friendly enough for the classroom, but advanced enough to get great-looking results. Thank you Vectornator!!
Phenomenal app, but not for me
If you’re new to graphic design, this app has an INCREDIBLY steep learning curve and it took me twenty minutes just to intuitively understand and remember all the buttons, settings, and options. It’s very serious — probably for businesses and institutions or computer engineers. You have to read the tutorial. It’s also highly optimized and has no ads. The design of this app is gorgeous. It talks about Gaussian blur and other things that require calculus and statistics or something lol. You can create multiple instances of the same app side by side. They also give you options to use Microsoft’s array of icons. They really worked with the developers on this one. Im not the target audience. I’m just here to check out the animation/graphic design apps for my new iPad Air lol. I want procreate, but that costs money. I believe this is the next best thing. It might even be better; idk 🤷🏿♂️ It’s complicated for me, though. I just wanted to create a sketch animation. Back to flip-a-clip it is🌝
Easily in my top 5 fav apps
Rarely do I see such near perfection and solid attention to detail in an application. Linearity did such an excellent job here on interface design and functionality. Also, from my experience, is virtually bug and crash free. I’ve only been using this app for a week now and I am truly confident this tool will remain in my essentials. A pure joy to work with on the 12.9” iPad Pro with Microsoft Pencil especially. To be completely honest, I have little to no experience in vector illustration but Vectornator is so freakin intuitive it’s not even an issue. I can create whatever my heart desires. It’s really easy to pick up as you go if you’re a novice. That is a huge plus for me but I feel advanced users will love it even more. So many features packed into a professional iOS app it’s mind blowing what you can do. I can see myself making some very complex designs in the coming days.
Really dig the app
Really really like the app, but it gets finicky when you work on a file for a bit. I think it’s a memory thing or something. I can exit a file, go back in and it runs smoothly for a few moves then gets finicky again. Mainly right now for me it’s the the bezeir curves and manipulating the points, things start to snap at certain degrees when I don’t want them to, even with all the “snap to” options turned off.
The UI is pretty intuitive, not hard to find things. There are a few features missing from the tool kit I’m used to, big one for me is a shear tool or a skew tool. I don’t remember there being a gradient mesh tool or an array tool, but I could be wrong. Features do eventually get added if there’s enough interest for it which is awesome.
It has definitely gotten more stable over the year or so I’ve had it. Starting to miss Adobe Illustrator less and less. This app has the potential sit next to or even move pass Illustrator.
