Iphone app for plumbing layout??


Was wandering if anyone has tried an app for the iPhone, preferably free, that can illustrate a basic sketch for my master bath layout?

"Magic plan" is neat for laying out a room with furniture, cabinets, doors, and many more. With dimensions to a 1/4".

Check out AutoCad.....I'm sure they have something.....It might cost a few 'dollars'....but if you can afford an Iphone....you can afford the app....

It's nice to plan and edit "on the go". Almost a hobby. I could sketch it and post a pic but that magic plan has been sweet for editing and conceptualizing IMHO.

What ever happened to drawing on a piece of paper?
Floor plan on one side- ISO on the back.
It'll fit in your pocket- you can nail it to a stud for all to see, or scan it into your email.

I am all for anything digital like that. Phones of the near future will just project an image onto the wall clear as day. For all the health affects and governmental spying that goes on with this technology, might as well use it for something cool.

Years ago, I was working on a new school project in a small farming community- way out in the sticks.
Fax machines were the latest rage and we had one in our jobsite office. It even came with thermal paper.
All our fixtures had to be submitted to the owner/architect for approval before install.
The job was fast tracked so we were putting in drains before official approval.
One day we had to set gang shower drains in the locker room slab but didn't have the rough in documents due to the approval process.
So I got on the land line to the architect and had him fax the approved fixture data to me. We thought we were pretty hot stuff- setting the drains just ahead of the concrete finishers.
Job site technology has come a long way in the last couple decades.
