Easy yet powerful - Decided to give this app a go when I saw it advertised on Reddit. I am thoroughly impressed with how powerful yet easy this application is to use. Great work, keep it up!

Review by thewandering jack

crapware - As stated in the other review, you can only save documents by signing up for (free) and into their web service. I literally installed it, saw that was the case, and trashed it because A) that means it is useless if I am offline. B) it seems to add a step to any wokflow (having to download from their site) C) adding a lot of network traffic overhead. There’s plenty of full feature actually free programs (FireAlpaca, Inkscape) without those problems.

Review by Perspicacious

cannot save your work; it all goes on their servers - This is horrendous. Nothing you do in this application can be saved to your hard drive. If you don’t have internet, you don’t have your work. Everything is on their servers and there is nothing you can do about it. Your work is held hostage in their servers forever. They have literally removed the “File” menu. It’s gone. No thank you.

Review by The True ScottyDM

Cannot Save Work, Except to Vectr’s Website - Pretty cool app, except it isn’t possible to save your work. You must sign up and then log in to Vectr’s website to save your work. That kills the usefulness for me. A second, but minor problem, is the seeming inability to rotate a basic shape. I will be uninstalling this and looking elsewhere.

Doesn’t work - Not only will it try to force you into creating an online account but it also simply doesn’t work when trying to open/upload an eps file. Waste of time.

Review by Beachwood 45789

Cannot save locally. Account REQUIRED - You must create an account to use beyond their interactive tutorial stuff - I didn’t. From the other reviewers, I gather that an account is mandatory to save as all files are saved remotely on VECTR’s servers. It seemed like a promising application but nah - I’m good. It’s a poorly designed user experience. If you add the ability to save files locally and make account creation an option, maybe I’ll think about it. Until then, this is garbage.
