Although tablets have opened up a whole new range of possibilities for architects and designers, using them for drawing and doodling is often a clumsy experience. In many cases there's far too little accuracy and far too much complexity when it comes to working simple operations. Archisketch, which was formerly known as Archipad, seeks to streamline this experience with a smooth, cleanly designed app for iPad that not only allows you to import drawings and doodle over them, but also draw to scale. The team who designed the app describe it as "ideally suited to the early stages of the design process." You can freehand sketch your initial ideas before exporting your designs to CAD applications. Integrating features that we're all used to, such as snap to points and snapping guides, Archisketch responds to the instinctive creativity that an iPad offers.
