For A Great Plan: Magic Plan App


By Patrick Archambault

As you’ve probably already noticed, the number of applications for smart phones has grown exponentially in the last few years. There’s so many out there that I sometimes need to be careful not to get overwhelmed by this abundance of choice! But I think that in all this melting pot of applications, only a couple are really interesting. My criteria for a good app are that it has to fulfill a need and to be user-friendly.

For the occasion of this post, I decided to share with you one of my recent discoveries in the field of apps. It’s called “Magic Plan”. It’s a tool that allows you to create a detailed plan of your house, office, garage or any other space you want to convert, using only your iPhone or iPad. “Magic Plan” actually uses the camera of your smart phone to elaborate a scaled plan of the room of your choice.

This clip shows the main features of this app and how to use it:

I often work with my father in house renovation projects. We have used this app recently and it worked great. It helped us create a digital layout of the room we had to renovate in a few seconds.

Try it, it’s just magic!
