Works great for converting SVG to PNG - Gapplin converts SVG to PNG files quickly and easily, even with huge scaling factors.

Great in Theory, but cannot export without crashing - Running latest version of Gapplin on OSX 10.9.5 on a MacPro 2 x 3 GHz Quad Core Intel Xeons with 12 GB Ram. SVG and SVGZ files open just fine. However, I am not able to extract either file type. Crashes everytime I try to export.

Review by kbanon

dies upon export - Got this for one purpose: convert svg’s into something else. The export command claims to work (the dialog box goes away), but when you switch to finder to see if the new file is actually there, this app hangs and you have to force quit it. Disappointed - I could have really used this simple functionality.

Review by Captain Petter

Great little app - Works great as a previewer! I use it to automatically display my result, as I edit my svg files manually in my faviorite text editor. As soon as I save my file, Gapplin will update the preview. Export also works great for me, although I don’t use it much as I prefer my files in the original svg format.

worked like a charm - I’d been running into issues viewing and exporting a particular SVG with ToyViewer (and with Illustrator), but Gapplin nailed it.
