YouTube Preview Image

Architects and designers everywhere know the amount of time it takes to get accurate floor plan measurements with a measuring tape, a pencil, and some graph paper,  but now there’s an app that gives you the convenience of measuring right in the palm of your hand in a matter of minutes.  The Magic Plan app, conveniently named, simply asks for certain areas of a specific room and is able to assemble a floor plan for you. The app also includes tutorials on how to use it effectively and get fully adjusted to it. Above is a video to give you an idea of how this magic app works and some images can be viewed after the break.

    I’ve tried a very simmilar app for iphone, but it didn’t work properly. Maybe this one is better but i’m sure it’s not very precise.

    the app is very interesting not the easiest and not the hardest to use i recommend it for any one

    It isn’t precise enough not to measure the walls, but gives you the basic design and something to put the measurements on. :-)
