buenos,though Altium designer is not a freeware but it a very comprehensive PCB designing software.
Cracked softwares have their own problems because many features of the cracked software do not function properly that might function if it were legally registered.I also appreciate use of legally registered softwares.
Can you please tell me the weblink from where i can download KiCAD.
dear what ever software you use, you have to learn it first. No software will work unless you know how to enter inputs and configure the software. There is a very simple solution if you are new to PCB designing. You can use CoralDraw. I can give you sample designs to start with.
Your cct is very small you can do it.
"basic features are missing like wires which follow moving of components"
-Altium doesnt have that, and some others neither. Also when you move a component for example in cadence concept hdl, you can create short circuits that you dont notice, so better not have a feature like that.
"rich library of components/footprints"
-Altium has that, but I never use them. they are almost always non-suitable for the components i want to use, and also not suitable for a company-based CAD library system. (where the other design engineers and the process and quality engineers have approved the footprint-making style and so on...)
