Ratings and Reviews
Works for me on iPad Air & iPhone 6
(Edit: as one noted he can't change font size? Zooming in on plan changes it because you are typing closer and smaller. Experiment!) It helps to be a little construction or architect intuitive. That mostly helps with less erasing! ;). I have no technical issues with this AP at all. Practice all features to see what they do, basically it is lines and boxes. In beginning I was a little confused that the box also cuts a line, but that was me. We are moving to a new home we are remodeling. I have always hand drawn grids and cut out little furniture from graph paper to help me see what goes where or make decisions what to keep. The layers on this is great and that they can be different colors and are numbered! Some things are double tap and spin the dial for more options. Totally worth the $1 to save and expert. A great tool to plan dimensions. I can visualize everything else. I don't need a 3D program just where will our furniture fit and what would an internal wall if moved would do. Thanks for creating!
Great but Frustrating
I adore this app, I needed something simple to be able to design carpentry projects & also for floor plans/furniture layouts etc. I bought the app outright a long time ago, I was thrilled when they added all the new features but the big let down about the update is this: it constantly gets stuck/freezes when trying to move highlighted items it also out right DELETES several layers after having spent hours designing them! This last incident of major work loss prompted me to leave a review in hopes the developers will fix this frustrating problem. I just spent 4 hours drafting out a pond/waterfall layout & just as I finished it & set my ipad aside it go get a drink, when i came back the app had deleted everything I had done since I picked it up. :/
It's okay... with quite a few issues
This was the best "free app" I could find and is probably your best option... but it has quite a few issues. First of all, I drew a few things and then the app updated (I'm assuming) and when I returned, my drawings got zoomed out and I couldn't edit them because they were too small. I had to delete the app because it was useless unless I wanted to restart. Plus, you can't label anything. When you try to, the words are never in the right place and the words change when you zoom in and out. I would only recommend this app if you plan to use it temporarily because the "paper" you have to draw on gets filled up quickly and you can't draw anymore once it's filled up.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
