Touch Draw


TouchDraw is a vector drawing application for the iPad.

TouchDraw gives you everything you need to create structured 2D vector graphics such as flow charts, graphs, diagrams, illustrations, logos and floor plans just to name a few. What makes TouchDraw especially valuable is that it allows you to not only create complex graphics, but to change them easily as well.

TouchDraw differs from a paint program in that objects are always managed independently of the drawing they’re in. You can move a figure around, change it’s shape, change it’s color, group it, without affecting other shapes that are around around.
