See TapGlance in action - https://vimeo.com/120228505

Drag and drop furniture, fixtures and appliances into your plan – more than 2000 items and materials are included with the app for free. Test material combinations using over a thousand included materials, or import your own seamless textures or camera photos.

NEW - You can now import 3D models into TapGlance directly from websites like 3DWarehouse and SketchFab. Hundreds of thousands of models are now at your disposal. A subscription to the advanced or professional plan is required to import 3D models.

You can design your plan using three different modes:
• The layout mode, where you add, remove, shape, and arrange entire rooms.
• The 2D mode, where you furnish the plan from a two-dimensional top vi
• The 3D mode, where you can walk through the plan in three-dimensional perspective, decorate it using a wide variety of furniture, fixtures and appliances, and apply materials to walls, floors and object
When your 3D scene is ready, tap a button and bring it to life using our cutting edge cloud render technology. The images produced by TapGlance are so real, most people will not be able to tell they were designed on a tablet device. In many cases, the results will far exceed even professional 3D applications, with little or no effort on your side.

NOTE - Cloud renders are performed on a dedicated high-end server farm and require an active subscription plan.

TapGlance is based on our award winning “Interior Design for iPad” app. With hundreds of thousands of users, and the distinction of being one of TIME magazine’s top 50 best apps in the world, we were compelled to push the boundaries and create this next generation interior design experience. It offers more than 75 new features and improvements as well as the revolutionary cloud render technology.

Features & Highlights:

Cloud Render (3D) - Combining cutting edge technology with hundreds of dedicated servers, TapGlance can transform your 3D scene into a photo-realistic image. The cloud render service uses real world lighting system, taking into account the environment you choose and the artificial light sources you place in your scene.

Direct Object Manipulation (2D, 3D) - Quickly move, rotate and scale any object in the scene using real-time transform handles. Easily change door and window locations by dragging them around, in 2D or 3D mode.

Stairwells (2D,3D) - Drag a staircase to a plan and TapGlance can automatically create the stairwell and build the correct railing. You can, of course, do these manually if you wish.

Cameras (3D) - TapGlance supports an unlimited number of cameras, so you can quickly and easily move between saved views of your plan and render from the same vantage point every time.

TapGlance offers auto-renewal subscription. The app itself and its content is completely free, while renders and a few professional features like 4K renders and custom logo require a subscription which auto-renews every 30 days unless cancelled.

Please read the following about the auto-renewable nature of subscriptions:
• Payment will be charged to your iTunes Account at confirmation of purchase.
• Subscription automatically renews at the end of your current subscription period unless auto-renewal is turned off at least 24 hours prior to end of the current period.

Getting there

TapGlance is a good app - I’ve been using it for years - BUT there are some key improvements needed. I’m honestly really surprised a couple of these STILL aren’t available. I used to consider this app four stars, but the fact that you now have to pay a monthly subscription fee for some services while still going without some basic updates has brought it down to a 3 star for me. Unless there’s some secret feature I just can’t find, I can’t imagine paying every month and not being able to:

1. Set the floor level higher or lower by individual room to support split level spaces, sunken rooms, etc. Anything in between a basic Floor 1/Floor 2 isn’t possible right now.

2. After setting a ceiling height for an entire floor, you should then also be able to adjust the height of individual walls (including dragging each upper end of a wall to differing heights) to create under eaves spaces and peaked ceilings that will then be visible in walk through mode.

The app could also use an expansion of the very dated interior design elements, as well as a couple other tweaks here and there, but those two above are really the most essential upgrades needed in my book.

Hate the new update and paid for renders and previews not fulfilled

I have been using the app for a while and really liked it for quick design renders that do not need detail accuracy or a layout plan. I am really disappointed with some of the new changes. In their effort to address double wall issues when users misalign room walls by forcing rooms to snap tight to another room, I now can not create rooms with geometry outside of right or 45 degree angles. Changing room sizes after they have been connected means a room that I have already adjusted to the right dimensions are changed dynamically when I make changes to another room. It is so frustrating that I ended my subscription. To top it off, the previews and the renders I had accumulated and paid for have been removed once my subscription ended. Their free renders perk works outside of their subscription model and seems to have no issues keeping track of previews and renders when not part of their active subscriptions, so why would is it an issue to maintain the renders and previews I have already paid and allow me to use them up. I would even accept a grace period but just taking them away definitely does not make me more open to try them again if they make future changes that address the above.

Love this app!

I had the other app from Black Mana Studios, Interior design for iPad, but when I stupidly tried to download it on my phone it wouldn’t work. So I decided to try this app the other one from this developer, and I loved it. I love how there’s so many different options, and so many more modern things in the other one. I also love how it specifies what genre of the materials from. But one fix it could use, Would be: sometimes when you try to design your layout it goes already so you can position it how you’d like. Even if no rooms overlap sometimes it will just say no. But this happens rarely overall this app is too big Samsung. I would recommend this to anyone who enjoys designing houses. I also appreciate the samples. The samples help me see what this app is capable of. I also love redesigning the samples because sometimes I’m feeling too lazy to actually do it myself.
