CAD for the iPhone

Very cool CAD application cadTouch R2 for the iPhone. In the old days, you captured ideas on paper, in a little notebook. Now you're drawing your ideas in CAD - wherever and whenever they come to you. Great for capturing information from a working construction site, sketching out ideas with a client, or working on your own Frank Gehry ideas. See videos of the app in action below. UPDATE: The app got some pretty poor reviews, so I suggest you think long and hard before plopping down $10. Too bad.
cadTouch is a revolutionary CAD (computer aided design) software that follows you whenever you are, draw floorplans or land surfaces (and calculate their area), fa├žades, mechanical or structural parts (and calculate their moment of inertia), diagrams, field notes, and more with precision drawing and right from the field. Then send your results instantly via e-mail (jpg) or FTP (dxf).

New v2.1 update's new features:

- DXF file importation, now you can open your CAD files created from your desktop computer right on your iPhone or iPod, this bridges your office to your site, you will always have your drawings with you when you really need them. (compatible with AutoCAD™, ArchiCAD™, SketchUp™, Illustrator™, Solidwors™, Vectorworks™ and every DXF-capable software). The first iphone cad viewer ever.

- DXF file exportation, now you can save your work into the most flexible CAD format ever seen on the iPhone, you will be able to communicate with any desktop CAD software. This feature will really change the way you work. For example, an architect now can draw a floorplan with measures taken on site and then instantly share it's drawing to his office: imagine the time you will save, now you don't have to re-draw, now you pin-point measure errors right from the site of measure.

You should check out SitePAD.

Its the latest iPhone CAD application and will apparently work on iTouch and iPad.

You can create CAD files on site, send them back to the office, open files uploaded to your account, share drawings.....pretty cool.
