The iPhone 4/4S, iPad 2/3 or iPod Touch apps that people create never cease to amaze me. The engineering genius of the developers who designed these apps and the mobile devices themselves is truly revolutionary when you come to think about it.
To highlight my point, I just found a new app for IOS devices only called MagicPlan that lets you make floor plans just by using the camera on your iPhone 4/4S, iPad 2/3 or iPod Touch. The idea behind the app is to map the room by photographing the windows, each of the corners, the doors and other major features of your rooms. You can even include other rooms, furniture, appliances and hallways in your plans. Check out the video and have fun with it!
You can save your results as a jpeg, PDF or any other file type that won’t work with design programs. The plans are for private use only and cannot be sold. If you want to use them for, say, a real estate business, a license doesn’t cost much. You could also just “Like” them on Facebook and they’ll give you a commercial use license that is free. It’s a good way for MagicPlan to build their reputation and gives you an incentive to give their product a try.
I found the MagicPlan app to be extremely simple and user-friendly and thought that the quality of the results were excellent.
