"adware. do NOT download."

March 14, 2014  |  By alan_brooklyn

 |  Version: SmartDraw 2010 2010.12

Pros

basic software for drawing flowcharts, etc.

Cons

Adware. I downloaded, played with it for a bit, and then removed it or so I thought. On startup a smartdraw window continues to pop up, even though no program called smartdraw or sd... is listed in my programs. I finally figured out how to remove using "Scheduled tasks" where two tasks beginning with SD are listed.

Summary

Evil.

"Sounds so clever and so good? Is it really?"

February 01, 2014  |  By Kushi Stanley

 |  Version: SmartDraw 2010 2010.12

Pros

Looks handy. Very impressed. Downloaded and installed. :)

Cons

Oh, my god, they have gone too far and forgot the very very basic. There is no option for you to open a blank document - sometime we need to build our own from sketch. :(

Summary

Got nothing more to say.

"Couldn't open a simple visio file correctly"

October 20, 2013  |  By MaxPower80

 |  Version: SmartDraw 2010 2010.12

Pros

None - didn't get to try it fully

Cons

Couldn't open an existing vsd file. If I can't easily convert Visio files, this product is useless. Will have to go with Visio instead.

"no good lost my time"

October 06, 2013  |  By hsamoila

 |  Version: SmartDraw 2010 2010.12

Pros

nothing positive, lost my time

Cons

you can't do anything easy as they say; you try to move a wall everything is moving, you try to print the trial has 4 printing options so you're done(with watermarks) you can't put the proper dimensions easily, you have to restart over and over for each modification; why should we buy a program like this;
I would like to know where they work all the users that left the positive feedback

"Adware, pure and simple"

September 30, 2013  |  By luckcactus

 |  Version: SmartDraw 2010 2010.12

Pros

You can do basic flow diagrams similar to Powerpoint.

Cons

Adware. This program installs MySearchDial and My PC Backup. The first hijacks your browsers search and homepage capabilities. The second produces a pop up ad ever ten minutes or so.

SmartDraw really doesn't do anything for you that Powerpoint or Word can't.

Summary

The program itself is fairly basic, you may as well stick with one of the MS Office programs.

This is essentially adware and the publishers clearly make their money from ads rather than (unrealistically overpriced)subscriptions.

"do NOT use this!"

May 20, 2013  |  By Dash_Owner_Phx

 |  Version: SmartDraw 2010 2010.12

Pros

NONE. Not only didn't it work, but even after I installed it I am STILL getting their popups and ads NON-STOP

Cons

YOU WILL GET NON STOP ADWARE!!! DO NOT INSTALL!!!!!!!

Summary

I have NEVER downloaded anything that I could not install. However, this program, after installation, still notifies me of their updates. The WORST thing is that both my browsers are now giving me NON STOP ads and unsolicited information. It's making me VERY FRUSTRATED. D O N O T I N S T A L L ! ! ! ! ! ! !

"Waste of time and traffic"

May 03, 2013  |  By dimaxer

 |  Version: SmartDraw 2010 2010.12

Pros

Nice reviews on official website.

Cons

I just have no words to express. It looked like this program is Visio-killer, but I would rather work in Paint rather in SmartDraw.

Summary

I was looking for a simple and easy to use AutoCad-like program and read good reviews of SmartDraw on their site. Installed it and was impressed. 99% of software I first run do not make me look into manual and read how to do things. But Smartdraw made me do it. Fantastically, but I almost never look into manual for AutoCad and ArchiCad but had to spend time trying to do basic things in SmartDraw. I would give 0.5 star if that was possible.

"Welcome to bloatware and a surprise seven day trial."

January 29, 2013  |  By Psyoon

 |  Version: SmartDraw 2010 2010.12

Pros

I was unable to install it before it zombified my system and used it to send Nigerian prince emails.

Cons

Malware and spyware

Summary

Optional Bloatware package! Yay! Nope. Uncheck.

Restarts Chrome... what? Ooh look! It installed an ad suite. Uninstall.

Uh... yeah. Okay, well maybe the program's worthwhile? Surprise- 7 day trial. Screw it. Uninstall time.

Before I could even get to the control panel it popped up it's other surprise- a software suite to backup your entire system online. Yeah. Sounds legitimate. Luckily it manifests as a program so it was easy to remove, but I'm waiting for the next thing to pop up too.

What the hell CNET? You used to not suck, and used to fight against this kind of thing. What the hell happened?

"I thought it was terrific, but . . ."

September 24, 2012  |  By susanrokita

 |  Version: SmartDraw 2010 2010.12

Pros

Initially looked like it was exactly what I needed and was ready to pay for it.

Cons

Then, it wouldn't print a sample, watermarked chart (3 sample prints allowed). Then, it became unstable and went nuts. Then, my internet stopped working. I'm running a new HP laptop with Windows 7. I thought my laptop was shot. I had to clean the registry because of this piece of garbage.

Summary

BEWARE! Don't download.
