Need to update for ios 13 2/5
By Omani 2013
After updating to ios 13 the app almost stopped working, cant open any cad file from the mail and cant open any file from any cloud services (on both iPhone and iPad) , please update
Wish it was good 1/5
Can’t edit line length using numeric keypad. It used to work well — now the app is pretty useless.
Useless So Far 1/5
By 18 Burgundy Explorer
I am using an IPad Pro. Pencil and Keyboard are 100% completely useless when attempting to create a basic shape. Made sure to go in and check the settings so that I can utilize the numeric keypad for exact sizes, and nothing works. Check settings again, and can’t edit the properties of the object or use the numeric keypad. For creating, this is extremely useless. For viewing, I can see it being helpful, but if the keyboard and Apple Pencil are not able to be utilized, how is precise and proper editing going to take place?
Over all good app but it would be helpful if you could see your current location while looking at the map
Needs more file support 3/5
Works well and easy to sync with my desktop... but when I plug my flash drive onto my ipad, I can’t open .dwg files even on icloud. This is due to the fact, the app doesn’t allow you to access Apple’s files app.
Great product 2/5
I use it professionally to show plans to clients and make simple changes.
HOWEVER I got an email from them that as per IMPROVING their AP , they will be LIMITING some of the futures:
Explain to me , by reducing features, how could that be considered an improvement ? I paid for the ap knowing all the features. Reducing them is neither fair nor ethical.
This app used to be user friendly 1/5
By UNT Engineer
Bring back the old drawing functions, i am an engineering student and i used to like drawing on my ipad more than a desk top but since the latest update it is impossible to draw and get exact measurements cause there’s no adjusting dimensions after you let go of the object drawn. Please revert back to this!!!
AutoCad Mobile on iPhone 6 4/5
I’ve been using AutoCad since 1990 but only just installed the mobile app on my phone.
I’ve only spent a short amount of time familiarizing myself with how it works but can clearly see some significant advantages to lugging my mobile workstation around the job site.
I think it is a wonderful and useful addition to the functionality of AutoCad.
Wasn't expecting a pay to use app. Disappointing! 1/5
I was looking for a CAD app that would allow me to do some drafting for a few small household projects. Upon registering, which I could understand for backing up my work, I'm told I only have 7 DAYS Free to use and I have to choose from the beginning the subscription I want before I've even used it. Not good. I'm uninstalling.
Issues after purchasing 5/5
If you are having issues with autocad after you have purchased a membership try uninstalling and reinstalling. This resolved all issues for me.
Used to be 5 stars 2/5
I don’t know why the update made the app be worse than before. To start they removed the smart pen feature which was quite useful. Takes way longer to draw lines or select objects now. I guess I could live without that but I can’t edit the length of my lines. I just can’t comprehend why they would remove features instead of making it better. I used to be five stars ! I would take it to jobs measure and draw up a base plan right there and then transfer it to my computer. It saved me so much time please fix the issues
Fix the bugs and it would be great! 2/5
‘I’ve been using this mobile app on my IPad and it seems the features like controlling the dimensions don’t work at all. Also the app crashes often. I’ve seen on the autocad social forum people say to uninstall the app then install it and it should fix itself. Doesn’t work! I guess I’m going to call Monday and see if tech can help with the software.
AutoCAD mobile keyboard is not working. 1/5
By Mesh Lets
AutoCAD mobile keyboard is not working. You can’t input lengths,widths on any object.
Best 2D Graph-paper Tool 5/5
It’s really easy to open a file and start drawing scaled floor layouts and anything else like kitchen cabinet heights, etc. if you have an idea and want to see it in scale, lay on the couch and quickly draw it up.
grid is great, layers are really clear and basic drawing shapes are simple to use. It’s super affordable compared to the overly complicated 3D programs where you hunt for 3D shapes when a simple box would work to get your idea in scale.
I created a simple floor plan and could easily share it with our architect. We had a site survey and I could open the dwg files all the trades seem to use.
Can no longer input exact distances. 2/5
After an update, this app no longer allows me to draw freehand and input distances. The keyboard doesn’t show up. This makes floorplan creation much more difficult.
The best! 5/5
By Jjreyes p
Es lo mejor! Para dibujar es muy amigable y excelente! Felicitaciones a los desarrolladores de tan fenomenal Herramienta!
Constantly Crashing 1/5
This version of the app is constantly crashing whenever I try and do anything substantial, like draw a line or attempt to move an image, or make an annotation. It was working fine and then BOOM, total FAIL.
Update is garbage 1/5
This app use to be great to do simple drawings with the Apple Pencil and editing. After recent update to make it more like a PC version. You can no longer work on dxf files. Can’t move back and forth from Dropbox. Drawing and scaling Is more difficult. Total garbage now. They should make it the way it was before update.
Not there yet!!! 2/5
If we could use a keyboard and pencil that would be AMAZING. Blocks are gone, that was a good feature. Also, integrating a way to bring photos in and cad over them would be great. Not sure where those predictive features went, but bring them back! Also, I set my units to architectural, but when I dimension it’s in decimal. It basically doesn’t work as a viable product yet, but keep working on it!!!
Great viewer 5/5
Couldn’t be worse 1/5
After I paid for the premium, I was expecting allot of tools to work with. It is very very limited on tools and not worth the price I paid for in my opinion. I am really very disappointed and I wish I could get a refund for the high price I paid.
I like the app but the only thing that I have a problem with is that I can change the color of the layer that I’m drawing on when I using the layers
No longer user friendly. 1/5
By Alpha mii
This app used to be free and easier to use. Now i cant even type in the lengths for my lines? I would not recommend this for anyone wanting and acual computer aided design, it doesn’t aid you in any way.
Terrible representation of AutoCAD 2/5
On my iPad Pro, the app regularly crashes and doesn’t properly give the ability to enter dimensions by keypad. Might be worth it if it were free, but not when I have to pay a subscription. Was a waste of $4.99 for the one hour I worked to find ways around issues.
Poor attention to detail 1/5
By dbegcj jfrnvonotn
Does not let you size font for dimensions. Does not reliably snap to corners or ends of lines resulting in inaccurate dimensions. Overall, this is a cheap app and not for anyone that wants to do anything serious.
Love it 5/5
Great for everything
badly closed almost all editing functions, for a simple subscription 1/5
By Gato de behe
Now that I started to like AutoCAD, they closed all the editing functions for wanting to collect subscriptions, many of them will look good, but they should not block the editing functions and leave only the measurement ones wrong, and close other applications that were useful , and they do not even work well, instead of improving they go back
Can not change dimensions of objects 1/5
This is a crappy app, what’s the point of drawing if you can change the dimensions of what you draw. id give it zero stars if I could.
Great integration with Apple Pencil 5/5
This is a great mobile tool specially when on the field. Working on my IPad with the Apple Pencil makes the experience even better.
Could be so much more.... 3/5
Missing lots of functionality, like can’t change layer colors.
Having to use the web app to transfer files is frustrating, and they almost never sync. I have to duplicate every file to sync it so I can use it on my desktop.
Despite its many issues, being able to as built directly into cad on my tablet is pretty handy.
Incredibly buggy 1/5
You cannot draw a line to a specific length. App is NOT free. This is a subscription application. Complete waste of time. Do not bother. Perhaps AutoCAD will decide to fully support. I doubt it.
Updates essentially disabled app 1/5
By sore old man
It is no longer possible to TYPE values for dimensions, which means you can now only view, where before you could draw. I’ve been a subscriber for over a year. This is BS.
I get that they are trying to make it work with AutoCAD desktop (which I appreciate, because you literally couldn’t view mobile drawings on the desktop). But my subscription to this app is now a total waste.
Impossible to cancel once you subscribe 1/5
This company is shady. There is no obvious way to unsubscribe from the monthly subscription. There are several posts online with people having the same problem. In those posts, someone from AutoCAD references a link to how to cancel, but the link is invalid. Also, autocad arbitrarily decided to make my password not work. So I am 25 minutes in and I can’t cancel. What a waste of time.
I have emailed customer support and we will see. But all of this is clearly designed to make you give up and not cancel your subscription.
No support for local files? 1/5
There is no reason for this forced cloud storage craze. Not a reason that that benefits the *user*, anyway.
Never gave the full version after buying a subscription. 1/5
I bought a subscription and it says that I’m subscribed but the version still the free version so I can’t have access to the subscription features and I did it for full year I’m so angry.
Good for on the go 4/5
Works good in iPad Pro settings take some getting use to.
Difficult without the pencil.
Overall better on a laptop to get complete version of autocad.
Useful but limited 4/5
I like this app for simple starts and Edits on site. Using the Apple Pencil definitely makes it faster and a little less frustrating than without.
Comunicación gráfica 5/5
By Mario Granja Ramírez
Es súper util para la comunicación entre las personas, la comunicación gráfica, es una de las formas importante de comunicación en ingeniería, especialmente en ingeniería mecánica
7 day trial 1/5
This is only a 7 day trial. I was hoping to be able to review plans from my architect. Disappointed
Great app 4/5
This app is great for engineering and architecture you can plan anything from pipes to buildings the only problem I can see is that sometimes the smart pen changes your lines to circles sometimes but it won’t change back.
Not Ready for Primetime 1/5
This app has great POTENTIAL.It currently has two major problems.
1. It doesn’t have a dimscale setting, that I can find.
The text is too small to read.
2. The tutorials show drawing lines and rectangles, and
numeric keypads popping up, to enter exact
dimensions desired. The numeric keypad does not
pop up, and it is virtually impossible to draw
3. Snap to grid does not work.
4. when drawing, you would normally start at a desired
location, and drag to the final location. For some
goofy reason, you need to tap the start point, and
then touch and drag. It is impossible to start at 0,0 without snap to grid working.
5. There are multiple tools that are shown, but “not yet
available.” Apparently available to Google or Android,
but not IOS
This was all discovered in 20 minutes of starting a drawing. There are probably other issues that I didn’t discover.
If you want the app to open your existing drawings, and make annotations or scribble drawings, then this would probably be great, but as of now, I’m canceling my subscription.
Don’t even bother, this app is useless. Even with the “premium” version you can’t even edit the length of a line. Figured I would just draw up something on the iPad instead of having to mess around with the pc but no, you are left with however close you can get with your finger. You want 131.5mm, too bad, you either get to the closed 10mm or you zoom in stupid far and get like 131.48.
I’m just glad I have a student membership and didn’t pay for this, this app is just insulting.
New update ruined this app 4/5
By Mr Breeze11
Where did the smart pen go?
Where is the drawing dimensions editor?
I don’t have time to learn new UI components.
Please change it back.
Version 4.4.27 is no bueno 1/5
By another unsastisfied customer
Was enjoying the app on my iPad Pro until update to version 4.4.27. I’m sorry AutoCAD, but you messed the app up big time. I can no longer share drawings. The scale tool is unusable. Blocks are no longer available. Can’t save a drawing as a pdf file. That’s just in the first five minutes of attempted use. The app in its current form is no longer useful to me. It worked great before, Im not sure why you had to go and ruin it.
Needs more tools 4/5
I have been using AutoCAD from 2 weeks. It is a great product but needs more tools for creating blocks.
Don’t buy 1/5
It is not compatible with the 2019 AutoCAD files.
I have fat fingers and wish it would allow the use of an I pencil.
