I know Appleworks had other stuff too! But now all that, and more is covered in iWork '06.
I wonder will they make a simple drawing app. that we could use if we wanted to draw, one that shipped for free with new Macs!
Not a big expensive app. Just a clean straight forward drawing and painting app. "iDraw".
Imagine if I felt like drawing in the 80's on my Amiga 500 I could! (DeLux Paint)
But now I can't!
Just a thought!
Apple has been there, done that, if I am not mistaken it has the T-shirt. With the very first Mac, Apple bundled MacPaint
. These two apps started it all. MacDraw
was introduced later to take full advantage of vector graphics APIs in QuickDraw. Currently, Apple bundles GraphicConverter
, a fantastic third-party shareware title, with some of its systems. There really is no need for Apple to do another paint app. As for drawing apps, Adobe Illustrator
is available. I have been a Canvas
user since 1989. There are also various shareware titles available. Sad to say, however, I currently see very little demand for traditional drawing programs. The apps developed by Apple for MacOS X tend to innovate the genre in some fashion and to meet an unserved market. Do you see anything missing from the gamut of paint and drawing apps available on the platform?
