The number one app I will discuss is Buildings by Despark Ltd.

Moreover, there are also images and videos to provide a better picture on different buildings.

Best architect apps for ipad – Graph Pad

The second iPad apps for architects is the so-called Graph Pad. We all know that architects use graphs in outlining and drafting their projects, particularly when they are making buildings and outdoor structures. Graph Pad is an app developed by Robert Shawhan that allows multi-touch capability. Architects will be able to sketch and design buildings through the use of lines, points, scales, and dimensions in the Graph pad. Arrows and comments can also be used to provide more sophistication and details at the design. Moreover, the projects you create in the Graph Pad application can shared to your friends or client through emails.

Best iPad Apps for Architects – AutoCad WS

AutoCad WS by Autodesk Inc. is the last iPad app for architects that I will discuss in this post. AutoCad is a kind of tool that is used by people who wish to design buildings, structures, and even engines. It is popular among architects and engineers as well. With AutoCad WS, users will be able to view, edit, and share DWG files (drawing files) even without the use of their bulky computers. So whenever they want to edit their DWG files, particularly if they are on the site, AutoCad WS is perfect this day.

Architects will also be able to tap and zoom in and zoom out objects in their design with the use of AutoCad WS. They can also manipulate different layers with different units of typing. Area measurements and file management are the other two options architects could do with the AutoCad WS.

  1. Clear is a great simple task list app that I use lots. PaperDesk is great for notes and sketching.

    I’m also developing my own app to allow designers at early stages to assemble bubble diagrams.

    Keep an eye on my website and wish me luck.
