  • Hands down

    By Tpav1
    Great app with tons of usable features!
  • Powerful

    By robinvt
    Trace is a remarkable set of tools in a really small package. I’m an older architect, by no means facile with the current set of CAD-BIM tools, and I’m enjoying using this... although hardly to any high level. The tools take some work to figure out, and explanations of how to do so are not always clear. But, that probably helps internalize usage once you do figure it out. Trace is wonderful for conceptualization at scale.
  • Too bad it requires account

    By Appd-out
    Non starter. Why can’t we have a app that just works without having to create yet another on-line account? I will not rent software either. Sad business models.

    Welcome to the new lame (and generic) way of saying “Bug Fixes, Performance improvements”.
  • I love circle!!!!

    By Zashmini
    I tried this app a few days ago was playing around till the circle proctor tool , it was exactly what I been looking for in a drawing tools over the years None of the apps could proved such simplicity, precise accuracy and easy to use in 2 Sec however I don’t know there a trial period for the app even with basic functions I Do love drawing circle with this app it’s help me to relax from over stressing
  • No directions

    By Suki Lou
    I just wanted to work on redesigning my kitchen.Paid for the the pro but never figured I’d get past free. There are no directions. I simply wanted a grid that I could move boxes aroundthese would be my oven , fridge, stove, cupboards, table, chairs, etc. I could color pictures like I use to for other homes I’ve redesigned. I thought this would be easygoing but for hell I’ll just go back to crayons if this doesn’t click for me soon
  • good game

    Lots to figure out, get better & faster
  • Good tool\ but still rough around the edges

    By Taylorzor
    Edited review from 2 to 3 stars. This is a raster based product, so don’t expect the crispness and retro-editability of other software like the Concepts app. Requires careful layer management in a photoshop style of working, which is complicated by the fact that the layers are designed to act like trace sheets. So if you hit the edge of the trace sheet your line might get pushed to a different layer. I’m cool with the trace sheets concept, it should really be an unlimited canvas though. Then again, big vector apps can get bogged down by large PDF’s and infinite canvases and this app wont. Once you get past the learning curve this app starts to shine. Still, while this app can be useful, it has some other quirks that I hope the developer polishes out. For example - the pen tool combined with the ruler is perfect for drafting crisp lines. But the eraser tool does not work with the ruler. So you can draw a straight line, but you can’t erase a straight line. I suppose you could use a stencil to get around this issue. Also, no ability to put in dimensions? This is the one missing feature that I am scratching my head over. Finally, avoid the undo button. It’s slow and buggy. Just use the eraser. Despite the issues, it’s very much worth learning.
  • Best app for concept development

    By Mikezots
    Sketch, refine, overlay, color, annotate. You’ve got a concept ready to show to a client. Imports and exports PDF and anything in Photos, works great with cloud-based services, plays well with other apps. * Things it needs for better workflow: - layer groups for export, so I don’t have to either duplicate the file or manually hide/show layers every time I export. This would let me keep all versions in a single file (workaround: create folder to hold all the versions of the project) - page orientation is automatic, so when the app goes portrait and I want landscape, I have to crop. - can’t save backups of source files in the cloud. They live on the iPad, period. You can only back up your exported files (pdf, images).
