Nice but could be even better
Easy to learn and fun to use. Today I used it on the fly to show a client how a king sized bed would fit into her bedroom. So it is useful. But it could be better with more options in the add on catalogs. More colors. More patterns and textures. Expand the furniture options -- or allow for easy reconfiguration of basic pieces. Allow for changing the predominant color of items like Turkish or Persian rugs -- that sort of thing. Allow for importing items from other sources -- or partner with key furniture companies to provide images. Focus more on options for key upholstery and case good pieces -- less on silly accessories. Finally -- allow flexibility to change catalog views and group items by category despite the original catalog they were included in. Would be great, for example, to see all seating options I have in one spot regardless of whether image came standard or was a purchased add on. I would prefer a beefed up app like this -- and willing to pay for add-ons.
A few more features would be really nice
I recently retired from teaching Drafting in college for 25 years. I have been using Room Planner for many years on my iPads. I love the way it allows for viewing in 3D and adding materials & textures.
I would like to have the ability to move multiple rooms or multiple items at the same time, and to mirror/reverse a room or the entire plan. The ability to import a 3D element from a CAD program like AutoCAD or SolidWorks would allow for an unlimited modification feature. Of course curved walls & windows would also allow for modern building practices to be included.
Finally the ability to show a roof and some porch rail elements would really put Room Planner over the top for me.
A RE-ARRANGER's must!
I have had this app a few years now. 5 stars on functionality and technical details, 2d & 3d views are 5 stars, space planning 5 stars. Frequent crashes. 4 stars, always saved the work tho, whew. I think they should do a user "age and use" demographic review to update the very limited, but appreciated, Library. I am not even sure if this was a free app or I bought it. No regrets. No complaints.
ANYONE CAN USE THIS. I have used for home and for my professional offices rearranging. I enjoy rearranging my spaces and this lets you see your ideas before moving everything.
And now using it for our complete basement remodel.
Easy to print from app or screenshots. TCB
