Vectr brings its free vector graphics editor to the Windows Store

If you're looking for an app to work with vector graphics on the Windows Store, you're in luck. The appropriately named Vectr has made its way to the Windows Store following its initial 1.0 launch as a desktop Windows app last September. The best part? It's completely free to use.

Alongside Vectr's Windows Store debut, the team behind the app outlined some intriguing new features that will be coming down the pipeline in future updates. Here's a look:

  • Built-in Marketplace & Community — create, share, or sell designs assets with others on the platform.
  • Embedded editor API — we're going to create plugins for all major CMS systems and platforms, which will allow to embed and use Vectr directly from there.
  • Google-docs Style Collaboration — Vectr's a real-time, collaborative graphics editor. It's like Google-docs, except that it also supports some offline editing if you're ever without a connection. We'll ship this tech later this year, but it's mostly built so we'd be happy to demo it if you're interested! Just send an email to
  • Built-In Version Control — no more threads of email attachments with "design_version_1", "design_version_2". Just send someone a link to your Vectr document, and you can view every version of that design in one place.

Launching on the Windows Store benefits Vectr by allowing users to automatically snag updates through the storefront while adding another quality app to Microsoft's marketplace. If you work with vector graphics regularly and want to give the app a shot, you can grab Vectr now from the Windows Store. Of course, if you'd prefer the Windows desktop version of the app, you can grab that as well direct from Vectr's website.
