By Morpholio Apps

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.


Awarded as “Best App,” Trace is the designers’ and architects’ dream software. Called “Digital Magic” by WIRED, “First-Ever” by COOL HUNTING and “Perfect” by ARCHITECT, Trace combines the beauty and speed of sketching with the intelligence and precision of CAD. Welcome to the future of design.

Essential to any design or creative process, Trace allows users to instantly draw in Layers on top of photos, images, or background templates, building markups or ideas to generate immediate, intelligent sketches. Morpholio Trace is ideal for architects, designers, interior designers, illustrators, or members of any creative culture. It is the unique drawing app that allows you to easily develop ideas in layers, communicate via drawing markup, and connect fluently with your global network.

Trace has been featured on Dwell, Fast Company, ArchDaily, Dezeen, MacLife, Core77, designboom, Inhabitat, dexigner, Architectural Record, Archinect, Gizmodo and many more. Arch Daily says Trace is "designed to make sketching and communicating with other architects easier than ever."

Customer Reviews

I have been looking for this for soooo long!!!

I never write reviews but I had to write this one. This is the app that comes closest to fulfilling the promise of the iPad for architects and designers. So simple and intuitive, so powerful, so good. Just the tools you need, with layers, SCALE (yes you can set a working scale to any drawing or sketch!) and full access to the cloud.

Thanks for making my iPad great again.

Architects DREAM come true! Digital Trace Paper!!!

If you're an Architect or Designer, you could not ask for a better, cooler or more fun app. I've been looking for apps that deal easily with scale drawing and this is truly unbelievable. As an architect you often need to work in layers, with uninterrupted work flow. This app makes designing anywhere effortless, fast and so beyond cool.

My fav functions are:
-custom stencils
-scale setting
-triangle plus a ruler
-moving paper with 3 fingers
-the scale pen function
-the pencil is seriously the best you will find

More color control would be helpful but other than that, this is near perfect. 5 proud stars!

Sketch / design as it should be

A great app for architecture
