Software Reviews and Criticism

  • By OrovilleMike

    DoodleCAD Versatility

    I have been a longtime user and really appreciate the ease of use and simplicity of the tools. I infrequently create technical drawings, but mainly use it extensively for posters, signs, and illustrations. It allows me to import a variety of file types. So I am able to take graphics and pictures created or edited in other applications and use them to build my project. Utilizing the ability to create various layers, which can be alternately used, allowing a sign or menu serve several function without having to be recreated. The latest version is superior to my initial purchase and I applaud the many new features. Thank you D. Stewart. Keep up the good work.

    Great for beginners

    I am not a regular CAD user, but frequently when I write manuals, I need to create simple mechanical designs. Over the years I have accumulated various programs to aide in this, but this one is always my main use program. It is simple to learn, and does more than I need. Why struggle with complicated programs you don’t use daily when this fits the bill nicely at a reasonable cost? It is also great that the developer responds quickly when I am having problems and need his help.

    I downloaded the app and liked it pretty good. Went to purchase the app full like the app store said I could and there was only the 1 and 3 month options. There is absolutly ZERO customer support what so ever.

    Have used this App since it first came out. Like any CAD program, there is a learning curve to becoming comfortable with it. I love the app for just what it was intended, “Doodling” with project ideas and the likes. For the cost and my needs, it fits my budget.

    Works as Promised

    This is a very scaled down version of what CAD programs usually do, hence the name "doodle" CAD. I had some problems figuring out the interface, and then I read the reviews, and I thought, geez, I doubt the program is THAT BAD! And I was right, IT'S a pretty good program. After a couple of hours of concentration, I can see it does have some pretty sweet features for a simple program. If at first you don't succeed, maybe it's not the program, maybe it's you.
