Version 2.1 of iDraw for iPad features iOS 8 optimizations, new layers pane and more

October 8, 2014

The popular iPad drawing app iDraw has just received another significant update.

Released back in April 2010, iDraw was updated to version 2.0 just last February, thereby gaining a new design for iOS 7, Photoshop PSD support, and a host of other improvements.

This time, iDraw has gone 2.1 for iOS 8 and with a number of additional enhancements.

Exclusive to iOS 8 in iDraw 2.1 is the new annotation extension. This lets you quickly annotate images with notes, shapes, and arrows using iDraw right from other apps.

But version 2.1 of iDraw most notably introduces a new layers pane that affords an easier way to organize projects. “The hierarchy-based layout gives you an overview of the structure of your entire design,” developer Indeeo notes. “Quickly find and select specific objects within layers and groups.”



Multiple layer selection and new tools for path are also included in the new version of iDraw, as are the following improvements:

  • Object names are used as IDs when importing and exporting SVG files
  • Layer and group names are now preserved when importing Photoshop PSD files.
  • Fix for preserving the EXIF orientation setting of imported images
  • Various SVG and PDF file import compatibility improvements
  • Many other bug fixes and improvements

Compatible with iPad and iPad mini running iOS 6.0 or later, iDraw is available on the App Store for $3.99, down from its regular price of $8.99.

The app is included in AppAdvice’s Best iPad Apps For Artists AppList and Best Vector Drawing Apps For iPad AppGuide.
