Here's what Illustrator experts have to say:

"MirrorMe is more addictive than potato chips. Once I start drawing with it, I can't stop.”
Cristen Gillespie

"This is EPIC guys! I might end up using this everyday. I'm so glad you're keeping Illustrator updated for all of us, haha!”
Jayse Hansen

"Ridiculously fun and addictive! I wish I could just play all day!”
Michele Weisbart

"It's saving me more time—I now often only draw one half of an object, while MirrorMe automatically creates the other half. Then I turn off MirrorMe and gently edit the paths with InkScribe, WidthScribe, etc., if I want to remove the appearance of automation. That's still a lot faster than drawing the entire object without MirrorMe's assistance. I can't imagine working without it!

It was when I decided to try it as a regular drawing tool that I discovered it spared me often the time of trying to get an entire object drawn, making the tool more of a part of a vector workflow than I expected. 

One heck of a tool!”

Cristen Gillespie

"Every time the possibilities in illustrator just become even more amazing with your tools... love it!!”
Camilo Jimenez

"A wonderful addition to my Illustrator toolkit.”
Andrew Buckle

"This is incredible, amazing work guys!”
Joseph Ash
