What are some good vector apps for the iPad?

4 months ago from , Director of the Awesome Sauce, also a Product Designer Freelancer I guess.

I have been struggling to find a good vector app for the iPad that is not Illustrator. Any tips?

    I've been waiting for Affinity Designer on iPad for so long already. Currently just use Affinity Photo since those vector tools are pretty good too. Most of the apps for iPad seem to be targeted towards drawn illustrations more than regular simple vector work.

    Vectornator went free recently and I have heard good things about Graphic but did not try it myself.

    Bez and Protosketch are ok but not great.

    My opinion is that scaling down desktop apps doesn't quite work on an iPad. It needs a new approach with perhaps vastly different workflows. Adobe have a good thing with Comp but they don't seem to be working on it anymore.

    What would you need to draw?

      I wanted to do hand type but I wanted to end up with an eps/svg file that I can edit later on Figma or Sketch. I also want to take a photo of a marker drawing and do something similar to Live Trace in Illustrator.

    While it's geared (or at least marketed to) more towards sketching than more technical illustration, I find Concepts app a pretty solid tool, with precision mode for more technical drawing.
