Good App for Ipad

Does anyone know a good app for the Ipad for drawing out floorplans, would like one that does not require getting a college degree to work with

Re: Good App for Ipad

I just used an architect's scale (1/4" = 1 ft) and a blank sheet of paper. I tried the sketchup but I can draft a floor plan faster by hand. I used to be a Kitchen & Bath Designer and did all my floor plans & elevations by hand too. I think I have hit my "technology ceiling". Too many of the technologically advanced methods are harder for me to learn. OMG, I'm an "Old Fart"!

Might want to try a pencil and paper......
Then just measure the floor space on your bus and lay it out with masking tape. Cut to fit....

Re: Good App for Ipad

Holy crap, I can actually help for once!

I was looking into the same thing for my Android tablet (before it decided to say HI! to the floor and broke the screen). What I wanted to use was a simple program called PAPER but, sadly, it's only available for Apple products (and FREE).

For our purposes, I used Floorplanner.com. It was free and intuitive enough for a novice to figure out
