Love t 4/5
Could use more things in objects
Can't parse HD3D project 1/5
My projects from the HD3D home app show up in the my projects area, but if I click on open all I get is an error message: Can't parse project.
Learning Curve but Awesome if Given a Chance 4/5
If you need an app that will help you visualize your landscaping ideas this is it. This software is surprisingly powerful on an iPad Pro. Through trial an error, once you figure out how to use the built in design tools you are off to the races. For instance, using an outdoor carpet icon as a substitute for grass by altering the dimensions and then changing the texture to grass. Or using that same carpet to create a modern pool shape by changing the color to blue and then adding a board shaped object shaded the right color for borders. The end design will satisfy all but, I would think, professional designers. Once your done with your design you can the see it from an aerial 3D Birdseye view or 3D ground view, simply awesome. I only wish they had more plant options, desert plants for example.
Error can’t parse project 2/5
I don’t know what it means. But outdoor home design 3D won’t let me open any of my already created projects from home design 3D. Also when I open up Dropbox in this app all that shows up is a blank box. I know I exported my projects to Dropbox.
Works great 5/5
I used it to bring my deck drawing to life so my wife could see what the plan was. Worked great to use as a reference
love it 5/5
I love this app I use it all the time for my designing projects!!
Cannot Import 'Home Design' Export File? Honestly? 2/5
By Fooled Me But Once
I wasted hours of coordinated work between the free 'outdoor' app and the paid 'home' app with the intention to merge them for a beautiful AND USEFUL model, but alas, 'outdoor' won't open 'home' files ('can't parse' error).
Until these devs stop listening to their marketing department (who apparently value a fast fiver to a long-term customer base)and focus on good coding practices, this app will remain a shiny baubel of a toy instead of a design tool.
This app, as is, is a revenue-generating toy posing as a CAD program.
Good but... 4/5
This is an AWESOME AWESOME AWESOME design app. It is great!! But I have a few requests for the developers.
1. First, please please PLEASE add more indoor decor. I know it says Garden and Outdoor in the title, but at least add a toilet and a prettier sink. Also, add a bed please!!! Just because it’s called “outdoor” doesn’t mean we don’t want indoor decor as well!
2. Add more people. It would be great if you could add a lot more people, and a lot more poses. What about a seated pose? Or a lying down pose? It would be great!
I’ll raise your rating if you do this!!! Thx!!!
Liking it 4/5
By Mom’s Master account
I’ve been using the app for about a week now. Fairly easy to use, sometimes it’s a bit quirky. I’m drawing my two story house. It’s not something you’ll do in 30 min, but give it a couple of hours and it actually looks good.
Same as Home Design 1/5
By Live Life for God
There’s no added Features or Objects from the full version of Home Design. Waste of a dollar.
Beginner like me 4/5
It’s very easy to use and for a newbie like me it’s perfect!
Old Version 1/5
Purchased both apps.. this is an older version and will not open the Home Design projects. Don’t waste your money purchasing.
Pretty fun 4/5
This app is great for messing with furniture placement or burning creative energy. The controls can be a little difficult when it come to small details, but on the whole it’s a great app to play around with.
Pretty useless 1/5
Difficult to measure, can’t remove random angle icons that appear even though it’s on a straight line, limited shapes for objects like pools, limited ability to customize shapes (for example an “L” shaped pool can’t be done. Am I missing something here?
Can’t open saved project from Home design even though it shows up in project list. Horrible design. Fix this
Super cool 5/5
I love this app!
One of the better apps I have tried 4/5
Not too hard to figure out how to use... Pretty fun and not too complicated.
Why can’t I access all my drawings 3/5
I just got this app for my Mac/Ipad/iPhone I can’t open any of my drawing from the home design app. It says I can’t open stuff from a new version. Why can’t all your apps work across a brood spectrum. I paid for all of your design apps you would think you could access everything across all apps. I have to change my rating from an original 5 star down to 3 and that’s being generous at this point. But I am sure you don’t care since you already have my money. Once you change the interface to access across all your apps I will change back to a 5 star rating. Also your home design 3D app needs some work with being able to add multiple floors and a roof system.
I think I just bought the old version of the app I already have 1/5
Update: I wouldn't recommend this product if you already own their newer apps. This seems to be an just an earlier version of their current app.
Original: I was hoping this would compliment their Gold app that I've been using, but it looks like that work is useless until the developer updates this app.
My files are visible from the app, but when I try opening them, an error message comes up saying that it can't read files created from newer versions.
I hope they update!
Great app 4/5
Great for ideas on the House
This is a solid outdoor design app. It's useful to help visualize various design features before beginning a project. I wish more objects, textures, and features would be made available over time with app updates.
Much improved 5/5
By Pahrump Cowboy
I haven't used this app for awhile. Very please with improvements.
Very Poor "User Guide" and Missing Textures 2/5
It seems like a fairly powerful consumer design tool but the brief built-in user guide is virtually worthless. There is, supposedly, a "texture" option that allows the user to add a wide variety of surfaces to areas in the design. However, the textures option doesn't show on my menu (the user guide says to click on the pencil to see the textures..... What/where is the pencil???) Without that you can't fill in an area with grass, add pavement to a driveway, add deck boards to a deck or fill in a paver patio.
This app needs work - or at least a useful integrated help feature. If I could figure out how to use the features it would be well worth the $4.99 cost. Unfortunately, as it is now, in my opinion it is a waste of money.
Pretty awesome app, but not super intuitive 4/5
Pretty powerful app with the ability to go 3D and visit once done, but things like concrete and house features are difficult to find. Types of objects is oddly limited as well. You can just replace with similar items for some. Other than that great app to get an idea of what the yard will look like.
Helpful app 4/5
I have enjoyed using this app and laying out our backyard and being able to send the ideas to the landscaper. It does take a little bit of time figuring out how to insert and locate objects and overall I think they did a good job developing this
It's ok I'm really only doing this to get stuff but it's ok
Great App 5/5
Easy to use, lots of design options
Really good 4/5
By Taco dude 789
It's another great architecture app
Stick to Free 3/5
I purchased the app hoping for more options. Has the possibility to be great but missing editable elements to really visualize what I want to do with my landscape.
Excellent app 5/5
I recommend completely!!
Need more 5/5
Looking for more design details
Not enough options 2/5
User friendly, but not enough design options
No Pavement Options?! 3/5
Basic idea is solid, but there is no option for pavement, or to change window or door openings.
Works But Limited Objects 3/5
I was able visualize how I want to redo my backyard, but the tool is a little finicky. There are limited trees, flowers, etc., so you have to use your imagination. My biggest frustration is moving the camera around. And after buying this version, I noticed there is a free version (probably ad supported).
Easy to bring ideas to life
Buen programa 5/5
Fácil e intuitivo
good value 3/5
good value for the money. it help me map out my yard so I could compare ideas. I wish you could print. I ended up taking a picture and sending it to my printer
Potential but misses the mark 2/5
I bought this to help plan my backyard. When we got to needing detail is where is fails. You can rotate thing and you can't print. It became useless fast.
I like it 4/5
I like this app... I wish there was a little more variety.
Just ok 2/5
There aren't a lot of design elements, even very basic pergolas are limited. I can't give my project its own file name, and the program doesn't recognize indoor vs. outdoor...if you select a ground cover outside, all areas are covered with the same design element unless you make a new plot for each different area. Cumbersome. The picture window can't be shortened, only narrowed. How do you make curved lines??? The 2 to 3D toggle is cool.
