...I'm using "Target3001" (there is a free version here: http://www.ibfriedrich.com/, but the commercial versions are also not very expensive). It is intuitive and easy to learn. I as a complete newbie managed to do this: as my first PCB!

I wish KiCad had a "proper" forum instead of a Yahoo group.

There are many PCB design applications but I generally use OrCAD. Here are some more application which can be useful for you: Altium, Allegro, Expedition, Eagle, Board Station, Cadstar, ProTel, Tango, PADS…

these are best software to design PCB.

Good luck!
