Adobe Illustrator Draw – “Draw puts your favorite vector drawing tools and features into a simple, modern interface so it’s easy to turn any idea or inspiration into a gorgeous design. You can even launch Adobe Capture CC from within the app, create a new shape and have it immediately appear on your Draw canvas. And because Draw is part of the Adobe Illustrator family, you can send your designs directly to Illustrator to refine on your desktop.” (L:G; SA:A)
