Nice basic option...
but missing a LOT of things. There is a serious lack of obvious architectural items including electrical outlets, registers, and plumbing. There's a decent choice among basic decorating items but you can't change certain dimensions, which leaves the 3D render looking odd. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE that this has a 3D option, and considering the lack of other choices on the market I'm quite pleased with what I've been able to accomplish. But there's definitely room for improvement! The app has frozen on me a handful of times in the couple of years that I've had it, but I've never lost any work, so only a minor quibble.
Good app, room for improvement though...
In an App Store that doesn't seem to have much along the lines of floor planning software, this app is among the better options available. There is a ton of room for improvement, though. There is currently no way to add wiring or plumbing in the app, as well as a bunch of other structural items listed in other reviews. It's worth noting that these things can be done in their desktop app (which I also purchased).
What I really hate, though, is the incessant nag screen that appears every time the app is opened. I paid, stop the nagging!
File from previous version doesn't open in update
I had a file I had been working on for a while. Just ran the update for the app and it won't open. The message says that the plan, which was created in an older version of Room Planner, cannot be migrated to a current version. I cannot tell you how disappointing this is. I spent a lot of time putting together that plan and now am faced with totally redoing it...which I may use a different app for because I don't want to run the risk of this happening again. Before, I would have given this app a 4 rating. Now I think I'm being overly gracious giving it a 2.
