Example of converting a Claris Draw drawing to a native EazyDraw drawing.

Full Lion Support:

EazyDraw 4 provides full support for OS X version 10.7.x (Lion). EazyDraw 4 will run on OS X version 10.6 (Snow Leopard) or Lion. EazyDraw. Take advantage of the new Lion technology with EazyDraw's integration of Revisions, and Full Screen mode. Learn more on the Lion page.

64 Bit Computing:

EazyDraw 4 is a universal 32 /64 bit application. This provides native 64 bit computing on 64 bit (most) processors. As you would expect this provides high numeric accuracy (12-14 digits), but more importantly native 64 bit processing provides the maximum CPU speed.

Multi-Thread:

Systems with multiple CPUs offer faster computing to applications that take advantage of multi-thread computing through a Mac technology called Grand Central Dispatch (the rail-road-switch icon above). EazyDraw 4 uses this technology for behind the scenes updates as you are drawing. EazyDraw 4 has a new Bundle file format for larger drawings that use multiple layers, this format saves each layer in an independent file, all of these files are contained in a virtual file called a bundle. This construction allows the Mac OS to use multiple CPUs to read the individual layer-files in parallel. This provides some improvement while saving or opening a drawing. It will be very important for using iCloud with large drawings.

Built For Mac OS X
EazyDraw is designed exclusively for Mac OS X, it does not run on other operating systems so your Mac experience is not limited by a lowest common denominator. Support is provided all the way back to Jaguar, yet the full capability of Lion is supported by EazyDraw 4.

Works Great With Other Cocoa Apps
Cocoa Applications share a common technology foundation. This means that you can expect a seamless work flow between your drawing application (EazyDraw) and other applications that are based on this technology, such as Pages and Keynote.

Getting Ready for iCloud:

EazyDraw 4 has left behind pre-Snow-Leopard technology. The foundations for full support of iCloud are in place. Expect full support for remote cloud storage and synchronization across all your Macs soon. The new Bundle format for large drawings with multiple layers will be quite important for efficient integration with iCloud. Only layers that have changes will need to communicate with the cloud.
