The user interface:
How easy or hard is it to grasp? Is it intuitive, relatively easy to follow? Or is it unclear, too complex? What can you say about the interface?
The homepage of the website is very clear and easy to follow. There are only three menu buttons where you can view the gallery, create your own pattern and an about button. There is also a clear explanation available about the software itself (button: About)

What notable things do other users say about this tool? (either good or bad!)
"Piktochart has meant that we can actually compete on a whole new level. It has almost democratized graphic design so that anyone can do it."
Testing the tool (learning by doing – trial and error)
What would/could a designer use this tool for?
The patterns the tool creates can be very specific, so you can take elements out of the pattern and place it in another context/use it to create photography/websites/videos etcetera. Also, a variety of color gradients are available and you can create random colors with it.
Depending on what kind of free this tool is, how “free” is this tool really?
The website is free to use, there is no download needed and as far as I can find there is no advertising for this website
