Shapes is a simple, elegant diagramming and vector graphics app. Shapes gives you all of the most important features you need in a diagramming and vector design tool without all the extra cruft, at an affordable price.
Shapes has support for "connected" lines. When resizing lines, the lines magnetically snap to other shapes. Then, as you drag the connected shape around the canvas, the connected lines adjust themselves as well.
Shapes offers "smart" paths which can be used for connecting boxes and shapes with smooth, curvy lines without requiring lots of fussy fiddling.
Shapes also includes a powerful Bézier Path tool for creating vector graphics of nearly any shape or description.
Additionally, Core Image Filters like "Pointillize", "Pixellate", "Gaussian Blur", "Sepia Tone", "Twirl Distort", and more can be combined and applied to any vector shape or image on the canvas.
Shapes is great for Programmers and Web Designers looking for a simple tool for rapidly designing flowcharts, laying out wireframes, or visualizing model relationships without getting lost in a sea of confusing extraneous and confusing features.
Shapes is also a swell vector graphics tool for designing icons and other graphics using bézier paths.
Shapes lets you get to work quickly by giving you just the basic tools you need in a slick, single-window user interface. Shapes is a thoroughly Mac-native app offering QuickLook support, Fullscreen Mode, Version Browsing and iCloud Document Storage. Export your compositions in common image formats like SVG, PNG, JPEG, TIFF or multiple-page PDF.
