Could use more functionality but it does work well
There are a couple of things that I really need in my daily usage of this app on my iPad Pro. Being able to easily draw shapes with set dimensions entered via text entry (I thought that I used to be able to do this), and the ability to draw splines. I have to switch back to my Mac in order to accomplish these two tasks and it seems like they should be easy to implement on the iPad. Having those two abilities would greatly increase my productivity.
Another caveat is that I haven’t been able to select any objects recently with the Apple Pencil 2 - I have to select the object with my finger and then I can adjust the nodes/handles with the pencil from there.
I still enjoy the program, I just find myself thinking that it could be a lot more useful with a few additions or tweaks.
Developer Response ,
We are glad to inform you that our latest iOS release (version 4.4.34) includes keypad, which would allow accurate input. While drawing a line or a shape, tap on a value box to access the tool.
Be aware that this is not a final version of the feature, as we are working on improving it. Please help us make our app better and share your thoughts.
Should have made it like desktop version. Why change it?
Whoever designed this app needs to understand that AutoCAD users weren’t born in 2000. This app looks very elementary and isn’t the interface most users see on desktop. Why redesign it when experienced users already have had a palette from many years ago. It should have been more seamless transition from desktop to mobile. One of the key features that I am at a loss for is:
Ability to type dimensions for line lengths and the use of standard key commands. Point and click is such a waste of time. For any experienced use of Autocad, typing commands from memory is faster than drawing lines. Once it compounds, one will know how much longer it takes to make a drawing.
Also, I subscribed, but my Apple Pencil doesn’t even work based on the tutorials about freehand and editing dimensions. None of that is on the paid version. And zero support. Unfortunate that it’s like any other generic drawing tool and not like the original desktop version, which one would think that is where you would would actually begin the design with and not start from scratch.
I will try it out, but it is so slow to even just draw a floor plan. I can do it faster on a desktop version. Time is money for AutoCAD users and app developers don’t really think that this isn’t just a hobby app, it’s a working man’s app to make money and every second counts when drawing in AutoCAD because it is used by professionals, not hobbyists.

Thanks for your feedback.
We wanted to notify you that in the new version of the app, you need to select a tool, before starting drawing with Apple Pencil.
We are currently working on improving Apple Pencil support within the app. We would appreciate it if you could let us know what are the functions that you are looking for when working with Apple Pencil? What function do you need the most?

Great product, how about more options
Easy to use and very flexible but needs more libraries of objects. The basic home furniture objects are fine, but how about more things for engineering drawings. I have AutoCAD on my Mac at home but I am using the iPad for much more of my work, so quick, easy, and portable
Had a project I did by hand because no steel shapes library was available. I am fine with making the steel shapes library an in app purchase. I know that other folks will want other libraries for their projects so make them as addons
Also let us add a shape we regularly use to the apps objects library that shows up whenever we start app
