Vector illustrations are more than just fun on the iPad Pro

It's rare that a $9 iOS app is good enough that you might prefer it to the professional desktop-class counterpart. Autodesk Graphic is just that great. It's so good, it's arguably worth buying an iPad Pro for—as long as you pick up the Apple Pencil, too. Since 1987, Adobe has had a virtual monopoly on vector-based illustration software. When you see something drawn with clean, mathematically precise lines, chances are it was made with Adobe Illustrator. This subset of design is called vector graphics, where every curve is not made up of pixels; instead, lines are comprised of mathematical formulas between points, which can then be infinitely scaled up or down.

 In the 90s, when I learned Adobe Illustrator, I spent $600 on my 4.0 license. Since then, I've faithfully paid to upgrade every other year. It's an expensive program, but there haven't been any serious options because of Adobe's virtual monopoly. Until Autodesk Graphic, that is: The core of what you can do with Adobe...<br clear='all'/>
