Version 3.2.4
Review by SpeakAlike

Superb Free Vector App - Hands down, this is the best free app I’ve downloaded in a very, very long time. I’ve only used it on a single project, but am extremely satisfied, and I would pay for this app. I’m an intermediate user of the Adobe Illustrator app, but decided it’s too expensive two years ago and switched to the Affinity Designer app. Using Affinity Designer is absolutely great, but I had to really tweak the UI to arrange and show the tools how I wanted. This UI is super streamlined and a lot of thought was put into making the tools available and centered around the work instead of pushed to one side. They have popups instead of slide-open panels that push everything else down to where you can’t see important information at a glance. (Best idea since paneled tools were introduced.) It doesn’t open images directly, but you can import and place them. The one gripe I do have is that it doesn’t yet open AI files, so I’ll need to go back and export AI projects to SVG so this app can open them. Hopefully, that’s a feature coming later. As stated, I would gladly have paid for this app. It hasn’t crashed on me, thus far. Some have reported that here in the reviews. Hopefully, that’s not a very common thing. I’m loving the app so far. I’ve tried a few other free design apps and they don’t compare to this one. Give it a shot.

Version 3.1.3
Review by Irishmoonfrog

So Disappointed! - Got this app in July and used it to design a book cover. Getting ready to publish the sequel and the App opens one photo, then freezes. Using a Macbook Pro with latest version of Sierra. This has happened repeatedly; sometimes I have to force quit, sometimes I have to turn off the Mac. I’ve tried closing all other apps before starting Gravit Designer, but it still freezes. Very sad, because this was a great free app!

Pretty good free graphic design app - I really enjoy using this app. I would love to see (in future versions) an ability to insert links that can be clicked through on a pdf.

Version 3.2.6
Review by gidgett39

Could Be Great - This app has great potential but has several flaws - the greatest being that anytime a picture is downloaded/imported the entire app freezes and “Force Quit” must be used to close the program and then reopened in order to get it starting again. If only it worked smoothly, I would use it. Let me know when the glitches are fixed. I just might use it again.
