Archipad: A New iPad Sketching App for Designers


Archipad is a new app that designers might want to take note of. Made for the iPad by Urban Design, the sketching app goes beyond other similar apps by being “scale aware.”

Once you set the scale of your drawing sheet, the drawings will be completely scaled to the real world, even down to the line thickness.

In addition, Archipad has many other features that cater to architects and designers, including layer rotations, shape and freehand drawing tools and more. [Design Milk]

You can download the app for free to use for small projects and, if needed, buy subscriptions to use the app for the time-frame required for larger projects.

You can find out more about Archipad on its website or you can download it for free from the app store.
