      niktesla Incredible app. High quality app. Completely Apple UI design, elegant and very simple to use. I really like it and it's free.

      Free program with same functionality and updated looks. Workflow is more streamlined, according to some. Available in the browser as well as on the desktop, both portable and installer versions are available. Covers all the bases!

      ElTortuga 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.

      Killy Much much better UI, once you find where to change color theme.

      Affordable price and better interface than Inkscape.
      Positive comment over 4 years ago

      Affinity is an established product with the possibility of growth backed by a company. While Inkscape is open-source software, updated by volunteers. For now, I'll stick with Affinity but I'd prefer to work on Inkscape if only it could make the same usability quality jump that Blender did with its 2.8 update.

      LibreOffice - Draw vs Inkscape opinions
      Some users think LibreOffice - Draw is a great alternative to Inkscape, some don't.
      LibreOffice Draw is a very simple drawing suite. It may be sufficient for many, but not sufficient to be declared an alternative to InkScape.
      Negative comment almost 2 years ago

      LibreOffice draw is good for schemes, but not for what Inkscape does - Inkscape is a graphic design tool, not a scheme creator.

      Some users think Canva is a great alternative to Inkscape, some don't.
      Canva is very very basic compared to Inkscape... While it can do a lot, it cannot do nearly as much as Inkscape. It is, however, easy to use. That is the aim, a very easy to use, but limited tool.
      Negative comment about 2 years ago

      Canva is not for making art, it for making infographics/greetings cards, etc.
      Negative comment over 1 year ago

      Looking at the screenshots it seems it's tailored to produce presentations / documents, while Inkscape is more generic and low level.

      Clip Studio Paint has very limited vector features. Just for manga inking. It is not a vector graphic editor at all.
