    • It's free as Inkscape is which is very important so maintaining that quality is a must. (This excludes Adobe and other commercial alternatives). Less buggy than Inkscape and better UI. The UI is particularly better due to its dark theme, I'm not a fan of software that is bright and tend to code with a black background. ElTortugaDec 2017 • 3 agrees and 2 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Incredible app. High quality app. Completely Apple UI design, elegant and very simple to use. I really like it and it's free. nikteslaFeb 2018 • 1 agrees and 1 disagrees Disagree   Agree
