Favorite chemical drawing programs?

I've been using lately but I'm wondering what other people like to use?

Back when I had my laptop I used MarvinSketch. It's a free download.

On an i-phone, I use an app called 'Elemental'. It's a bit annoying to use however as the controls can be finicky at times.

I use chemsketch for drawing molecules. It does scientific apparatus as well. One problem is that it does not show multiple bonds well -- and this is a problem when I am presenting something to students.
So the other one I use is Avogadro. In reality they are quite similar and equally easy to use. I always get the feeling that chemsketch is more powerful. (I am sure that it is true if I had invested in a paid version.)

I´ve used a few softwares for molecule drawing so far. In my opinion Chemdraw is the most versatile one. However, it is not a freeware. :)

Our webpage has been shut down forever cause nobody was willing to contribute. Shame on you all!!!

I use BIOVA Draw 2016, mostly because it's free. That being said, I don't actually know how to properly use it- I still can't figure out how it handles electron arrows, for example.

If we don't study the mistakes of the future we're doomed to repeat them for the first time.
