    • InkPad has all the essentials of Adobe Illustrator with the same look and feel of tools, icons, Bézier curves, etc. There are layers, masks, you can place pixel based images in the documents. Feels like Illustrator from the old days, before all the effects options. But, you really start to wish for a mouse. Also note that currently, InkPad doesn’t seem to react at all to input from a Bluetooth keyboard. Guest • Jan 2018 Disagree   Agree

Solid and reliable - handles large vector files with ease. Love inkscape too but that falls over when you have big files.

I think it's great, i have use ilustrator for quite some time now and i'm very happy with it, easy to handle and very useful, it's a bit pricy but I think it is worth it

I still cheer for an open source, free or lower-priced vector graphics editor to come by and usurp Adobe Illustrator, but for now it's the de facto standard. I like it very much, but the price (even if I skip a generation) can be a little tough to swallow.
