ArchDaily reader ArchNYC, for example, commented “how is morpholio, Paper, or i-Rhino 3D not on this list? they are incredible apps.” Reader Anna responded: “Agree 100%[...] ArchDaily should consider a second list.”

Well, you spoke, and we listened. We’re going for Round II. But, this time around, we want to know: What Great Architecture Apps Did We Miss?

And we haven’t even gotten to the best part. The folks at The Mobile Engineer, creators of our #9 App [steel], will give 5 lucky commenters a Promo Code – either for  [steel] (for iPhone) or [steel HD] (for iPad) – for FREE. Not bad, eh?
