IDesign some way to go yet
I have been looking for something like sketch up for the iPad or at the very least a 2D version of sketch up but sadly although idesign looked promising it just doesn't work. All I wanted was the ability to place lines, points and arcs at specific location and of specific dimensions so I good draw simple plans. The interface on idesign is just too hard to use. It has several curve types but not the ability to draw a simple arc. You can get a property table up for curves that appears to let you be able to define specific locations but it won't let you set certain dimensions. Despite looking at the videos and working my way through the user guides I just can't make it do what I want. I have used graphic based software for my job for years but this is just too difficult to use. I also keep getting ghost lines that disappear then reappear when you start drawing a new line. For me it's too hard to use, to difficult to get it to draw lines of the dimensions you want and too flaky with ghost lines. It has too many single and double taps that too easily undo what you have just done. I can't see how you can sensibly use this to draw anything useful. Finally it can't export your drawing in a dxf format. Ultimately a waste of time.
Most fully featured vector app on iOS
There are simpler apps that take less getting to know, but if you’re after the fullest vector feature set on iOS then this is it. And the UI has consistent logic alongside some good accessibility features, so once you get in the swing if things what you need comes to hand easily.
P.S, found the one star review because ‘it’s too complicated and the buttons don’t seem to do anything’ hilarious. If you’ve any experience with vector apps you’ll find this one easy; you can thoroughly explore the UI in half an hour and you’ll know at a glance what the buttons do as you find them. If you have no experience but want to learn then this app is a great way to explore, but that is a learning process of course!
Very, Very good.
Been paying a designer to do simple sketches but he was unreliable and costly.
My drawings are better than he used to do and I get them when I need them.
App has a few bugs such as files disappearing and then reappearing after changing the file name but overall an excellent purchase that I would highly recommend!
