PadCAD is an easy to use CAD application designed for small drafting projects such as home additions, small remodeling projects and site surveys. With PadCAD, anyone can produce clean, clear drawings and export them to a professional CAD application like AutoCAD. PadCAD was designed with ease of use, speed and mobility in mind and is not a full blown CAD application. For small drafting or construction projects, it just works. PadCAD is ideal for general contractors, small architectural firms, appraisers and real-estate professionals. People looking for a simple CAD app to help with their small remodeling projects will find PadCAD to be the ideal drafting solution. PadCAD has a shallow learning curve and is specifically designed for people with little or no previous experience with CAD software or drafting applications. PadCAD does not require an internet connection, except when you export a drawing. PadCAD can export drawings as PDF, DXF or image files (PNG format). This app requires a MINIMUM resolution of 960 x 540.

PadCAD is free to download and use, but to save or export your drawings you will need to upgrade the app. A one-time fee of $14.99 will be charged for the upgrade.
Once upgraded, you can save or export any number of drawings as many times as you wish.

Main Features :

1) Intuitive finger-based drawing and editing: Draw walls with your finger, then adjust them by dragging or stretching them.

2) Fine-tune controls: For greater precision, every element can be fine-tuned with numeric values for any of its attributes. Simply double-click an element to fine-tune it.

3) Unlimited Undo and Redo: Made a mistake? Made more than one? Tap the Undo button as many times as you need and start over. You can Undo all the way back to the beginning of your session or Redo to your current state. Don't you wish life had an Undo button?

4) Take Pictures: You can photograph the area you are sketching and associate it with your floor plan. A photo icon is placed within your drawing to remind you where your picture was taken. Double-clicking the photo icon displays the full image. This makes it easy to remember which picture goes with which area of the floor plan.

5) Intuitive Zoom & Pan: Use two fingers to zoom in and out of your drawing, just like you would with any other picture on the iPad. You may also pan the drawing simply by dragging your finger. The drawing area is 4 times larger than the iPad screen, allowing you to work on very large drawings.

6) Joystick: The joystick is a very handy way to rotate and move any element without using your fingers or typing in numbers. It provides a third alternative for moving or rotating elements and is one of the most-utilized features for advanced users.

7) Exporting: Export your drawing either as an image file or as a PDF file. Exported drawings can be emailed to any address you want. If you're in an area where there are no internet connections, you can save your drawing as an image file to your iPad's camera roll or save the current drawing within PadCAD by starting a new drawing.

Suitable for applying to project mock-up areas.. Why its background is set to blue colour...? Can it be changed with any other??

Zachary Little

Freezing after purchase (Nexus 10) The app worked great in the free version so I bought the full version. As soon as it was paid for it started to freeze every few minutes. The final straw was when the project I saved disappeared when I tried to load it after restarting the tablet. I am now in the process of requesting a refund.

Christine Cillo

Why..... o why, are all these cad programs so hard to use?? I had high hopes for this one too. Why can't you put in a dimension to place a point? Why is there no ×+ ×- or y+ y-. If it had these things it would be an awesome app!

Tim Hoover

1920x1080 < 960x540?????? I don't think so buddy. I'm using a Nexus 5 so it might be because of the onscreen buttons. Which should have been developed for 3 months ago when Android 4.4 was released with immersion mode.

Stephen Landry

Make easy money with this drafting drawing I made 500 in 10 to 15 minutes on something I've been working on for a week if I can do it you can do

Oktay Asik

Menu is getting out of screen range with Note4.. please fix if you want 5 stars still trying to use...

Gordon Wetmore

Best of breed I used the same acid test I use on similar drawing programs. I made a rough floor plan of my three level home. With no instructions, no stylus and without my eyeglasses. It took less than 10 minutes. I found the GUI to be intuitive and instructive. Thus app passed my benchmark tests and my expectations with ease. Recommended.

radar kay

Most impressive! First, I can't express enough my sincere gratitude for telling people UP FRONT that its a TEST ONLY app and that saving and printing come when you pay! THAT by itself is worth 5 stars... but theres more. I could tell By using it, this app was crafted for PRECISION with use with fat fingers like mine! I was able to draw many structures EXACTLY the way I wanted them to look. No compromises! Its almost 4 am but I WILL be buying the full version TODAY! THANK YOU For a GREAT app!

Matt Thompson

Doesn't work Doesn't work on Nexus 5 screen resolution of 1080x1920. It require s minimum of 960x540..... So why is it not working?

MarieLynn Robinson

I've tried several cad apps and this is the easiest to use by far for what I need to do.

Maureen Kitchen

So close then spoilt by the inability to save. Nice program except it won't save the finished file (yes I know it won't), ah well will keep looking. Such a shame as it worked so well at a shed design I was planning. :-(

John Jones

Like app I've sent 2 emails with questions and haven't received any reply. It's been a couple of weeks guys, come on. Does it default to 1/4" per foot scale and can you note the scale? And, if I purchase the app, will I be able to use it on my pad and by PC at one fee? I see the computers have their own identities.

Good apps I like it, good working in Asus Zenfone previously I was having another Co. Mobile it was not working but in Zenfone it is working is good.

robert gillies

Asus Nexus 7 2012 owners are simply SOL! Probably a nifty program. But, Google Play reports that it's not compatible with my T-Mobile Asus Nexus 7 2012 although the tablet's less than 3 years old with the latest Kit Kat 4.4.3! That's really a shame to be so fussy of an app. One star for such lack of compatibility for a major Android tablet brand. And even if this Nexus model had been discontinued, the fact is the tablet does exceed the minimum screen resolution the app required.

Brent Salzman

Waste of time Buy only no try first then go for more. Just a bad app

Brett H

Doesn't work on nexus 5

Junior Tan Maranan

Magnificent Learn first before you know to use it, it's easy to learn

Dehvokahn Kolehshtahn

Very hard to use and has in app purchase This cad app seems like it's got potential, but it has a poor interface and menus seem to disappear and don't make sense. I will never make in app purchase so fix the interface and make the app purchasable from Google play directly and I may consider it.

romaldo aviles

wish I could save two three drawings

arvind paal

Aawsome I us this app it's too gud

George Orlando

Good but But the inability to save is the problem

Ryland Shaw

"screen resolution too small" Can't be. My xperia Z1s has a 1080p screen.

Richard McMichael

Autocad I love this app and anything having to do with art and design...great way to make a living if you put your mind to it...

Phillip Hagerman

Fantastic! Best of breed! After trying out many many of the "drafting/CAD/floorplan" apps this one is my top choice.

Rajeev Mishra

Colour the element How can i colour the element

A Google User

Very nice and easy✔

Justin Bennett

Need to put requiments in description The app won't work with razor m cuz it requires a bigger resolution than what my phone has... seems like it would be rather handy to have but doesn't work with all phones

Joe Herbert

Geared towards architecture Works well but aimed at architecture and floor plans. I'm electronic and mechanical, so not much for me here. May need it to help a friend out though

ayaj sayyad

Good Gcdjsyfhhx very good

Hyella Terry Ezra

Excellent and made easy

Jorge Rodriguez

No more paper sketches Have paid version and after last update it don't work anymore!!!!! Force close after opening.


Stupid pointless download Want to save or load your work? 14$. Move on to a different app.

Martin Goode

Tidy little app Took about 10 mins to get use to the menu and with the instructions button clearing any other issues i couldn’t figure out, makes this a very tidy planning tool. Currently using for my house improvements, saving a fortune on an architect....full version £9.00 cheers easy ☺

Benjamin Arkorful

Good I download it, working on it I couldn't have the keys anymore it only gives length of doors and windows at the right corner,please do it in other to stay those keys at the top

Ted Moyer

Please add hover support For devices like Galaxy Note 4 series. So that when using my pen, I hover over an icon and it tells me what it is.

Landon R

Does not work on Nexus 5

Matt Phillips

Has potential, but not there yet. I've been working with this app for 2 hours now. I'm trying to design an 8'x8'x8' hunting blind. I can't set the grid as low as 1", only 2". I can't set the wall width to 0", since I am making the walls. Attempting to zoom in and lengthen a "2x4" results in only grabbing and extending one side of the 2x4 end, instead of both sides simultaneously. Having larger dimensions fixes this, but I don't need larger dimensions. It's just not for small dimensions/projects. I'll just stick to CAD on a computer.

Rubina Aratoon

So easy Simple,straightforward and clear design. Intuitive.

C Baker

Ok need work. I would buy this app if the double click to select was fix as it is very hard to select a wall and can just move the wall around. And adjust other wall measurement. I would be better if you could just long press. Also locking a wall will not stop the length being change. Otherwise I see a very good app. Fix this and I will be buying it. Used on lenovo yoga pro.

Scott Haskell

sux can't move items, can't align. In the time that I took to centerline two lines, i could have hand drawn. Powerpoint does a better job this pos. I can't set the grid to 1" so all lengths are in 2" so I can't draw a 60" line...either 59 or 61, but not 60" stupid is this app...where is the negative star?

Orion Lamothe

Wow Doesn't work on my g2. It says I have a resolution of 897x540 when my resolution is 1080x1920.

Don Penning

Useful Easy to use, complete and good instructions. Too bad save costs money. Think I will look around.

Dane Guzman

Precision and control Simple and very nice but one thing very important is missing.. Cannot accurately start an item where you want them to be and when you do, editing is just as hard. Double tapping an item keep on relocating it and its annoying... two star for the general concept of the app...

Steve Totten

Very handy Only been using for a few minutes but it is very cool. Instruction set not suitable for what I want but still very easy to use.

Devindra Mohan

Samsung Note 4 Very easy to use, however after spending about 1 hour and 45 minutes with my drawing, it freezes up on me and I couldn't retrieve it?.Also you will have to pay, in order to save your work. It is worth the buy?, if it doesn't freeze up ?.

Drraven Macleod

Love it But.... My new phone has a menu bar at the bottom that doesn't go away. This hides the "Finish or Done" button at the bottom of the right hand variables bar that opens when you want to fine tune. They need to fix this so you can reorient the menue bar.

Levi Mollenhauer

I hadn't played it yet but looks awesome The reason I hadn't played it yet is because my ipad is stuffed and top of screen has a black box covering the menu so I will keep it until next notice :-)

John tharp

Dont waste your time Wants a different screen resolution....really???

David Ling

Limited use Ok for a builder, useless for engineering.

Daniel Thompson

Good but menu keeps disappearing The menu continues to disappear altogether or run offscreen. Very frustrating if youve worked on something and are unable to save because the menu cannot be accessed. Potential, but needs fixing soon please. Paid 14$ for something i cannot currently use...

Don Spearce

Waste of money and time Lacking important fundamentals to develop accurate drafts and loosing the work happens if it is not saved every 10 min (terrible not even worth 1 star)

Kristoffer Bennett

Not quite I have spent countless hours testing every drafting app I can find. This one is ok. Has potential but still falls short if I am to pay anything. The first person to make an app like it should be is going to be rich. To bad nobody seems to be able to get it right.

Steven Lembark

No way to key in lengths, no way to draw anything accurately. Klutzy interface. Save yourself some time.

Johnny Mohan

Samsung Note 4 Very easy to use, however after spending about 1 hour and 45 minutes with my drawing, it freezes up on me and I couldn't retrieve it?.Also you will have to pay, in order to save your work. It is worth the buy?, if it doesn't freeze up ?.

Books Lover

Not working When I opened the program first time it did not work at all. Resolution issues must be solved in this program
