Home Designer – now as an App!
Oslo, Norway, January 5, 2018
It’s Time for a Change
It’s 2018 and we are proud to introduce our all-new Home Designer app! It’s a completely new version of Home Designer, our popular web-based floor plan, and home design tool. The new Home Designer app is available to download and install on your Mac or Windows computer and on your iOS or Android tablet. It’s packed with great new features that let you draw your floor plans faster and make it even easier to create beautiful home designs.
Fully Compatible with Home Designer Classic (Web version)
Our popular web-based Home Designer (the “Classic” version for Web) will still be available the same way as before, so you can migrate when it suits you. The new Home Designer app is fully compatible with Home Designer Classic for Web – and you can even use them in parallel.
All your RoomSketcher projects are stored in the cloud, and synch across devices and platforms. Start a floor plan on your tablet, and finish it later on your computer or vice versa. Just sign in to your account using the app for Mac or Windows, the app on your tablet, or even the Classic web-based version. Your projects are right there, ready to view and edit. Plus with the app, you can work online or offline so you have more flexibility to work anywhere and anytime you want.
New and Improved UI
The new app has a beautiful new user-interface. Our tablet app users will recognize the UI, and now it’s available in the app for Mac and Windows too! Draw and furnish your floor plans in the same easy-to-use “modes”.
Draw Walls Fast and Easy
With the new app, drawing walls is fast and easy. Tablet app users will now be able to draw walls in the same way you do in the Classic (Web) version. Just position the cursor where you want to start, tap your finger anywhere on the drawing pane, and drag your finger to draw your wall – it’s that easy! If you are using the app on Mac or Windows, check out the handy new hotkeys that make drawing your floor plans even easier.
