Apps every Architect/Designer should have

Architects and designers are spending more and more time on their devices each day. To our luck, there is a continuous rapid creation of mobile apps built to help out people in the architecture/design field. In our fast-paced world, they occasionally need tools and gadgets that make them productive and efficient. Here are some of the apps we think you’ll like-

1. Concepts

Concepts is a flexible space to think, plan and create. Sketch plans and whiteboard on the infinite canvas, write notes, doodles and mind maps, draw storyboards, product sketches and design plans, then share with friends, clients and other apps.

2. Pinterest
