Version 1.6.5
Review by Sarah White

RIP OFF - While the app is very user friendly and seems great, it cuts you off halfway through designing your first project!! The Lite version is a scam and you might as well purchse the app or use it to see if it’s user friendly or what you want. There’s no way to actually design anything to use on this app. It’s more of a demo. I wasted an hour working on a newsletter for elementary school and can’t even access or use it now that the app is asking to upgrade. BOO

Only European Page Sizes - Can’t set page to US letter. No custom page sizes either.

Not user friendly - I spent hours creating a document just to relize that you can’t print on standard US letter paper. The closest option is A4, which causes everything to be off center and the bottom to be cut off. Huge waste of time!

Review by Christothe1st

Thank you! - I never give reviews but this app and it’s developers deserve it. I searched for hours to find a flyer maker / illustration software, after the one that came standard on my Mac would not function. It wasn’t until I found this app that I was able to make a nice flyer for a benefit to help a child born with a rare and serious congenital disorder. This app helped me to create promotional material to potentially help raise money for this infant who is fighting to survive. Thank you to the developers for making this free as I could not afford to pay for a flyer maker.

useless in USA without standard US paper sizes - Good luck getting it to print with your available paper and envelopes and printer in the US. Otherwise it would be okay for small print jobs.
