December 27, 2019 0 By Darjee Kumar

With the very fast-paced life, we are becoming more and more accustomed to utilities which makes our workflow easier, and more productive. Architects are spending more and more time on their devices each day. So, there is a continuous rapid creation of mobile architecture apps for building and helping out the architects wherever they are.  By using the application, they can do work smart rather than work hard.  Below are the best architecture apps.

Magic Plan

Best Apps for Architects – Our selection for 2019 - ArchiSnapper Blog

The MagicPlan will make augmented reality work to an architect’s advantage by allowing them to create accurate floor plans without the use of measuring tape, pencils, or paper. The application will assemble a floor plan in a matter of minutes.   So, you can stand and point a device towards space that needs measuring. You can export these drawings as a PDF, JPG, or DXF and share them with collaborators. Also, the app will also include tutorials on how to use it effectively and get fully adjusted to it.

Autodesk Formit

The application will allow the architects to use real-world site information during the early design stage of a project. Formit is an intuitive, easy to use mass modeling applications that help the designers make informed decisions while accessing the site and climate data. So, it allows designers to sketch proposed design options that can be compared with program requirements and then shared with the project team for continued collaboration through Autodesk.

iRhino 3D


With the help of iRhino 3D architects can view models created in Rhino 3D and allows you to view native Rhino 3DM files on their iPad, iPhone or iPod touch, pan, zoom and rotate using typical commands. Using navigators, they can scroll through thumbnails and quickly jump to different models, then show them to clients and colleagues and save views as images for markup and emailing.


BIMx - BIM eXplorer - Apps on Google Play

BIMx is the best architecture apps for viewing ARCHICAD models on smartphones and tablets. Architects can use this free app for Android and iOS for sharing designs, viewing them in 2D and 3D or in virtual reality on the iPhone where the Google Cardboard is supported.

The above-mentioned applications are ideal ones to download and making it easier for architects to use in smartphones rather on laptops. Hope that I have covered all the topics in my article about the best architecture apps. Thanks for reading!
