Autodesk Brings AutoCAD on Smartphones

Autodesk’s AutoCAD is no. 1 software application for architects and engineers to make their project designs unique and most robust. It has got almost everything as expected from a mobile application. With this official CAD Android and iOS application you can view, edit DWG files stored locally on your SD card and share them with anyone, anywhere via your online AutoCAD WS account. AutoCAD WS mobile app enables you to work with AutoCAD drawings directly on your Android smartphone or tablet.

With this app you can do small things in your AutoCAD project like making small changes, accurately annotate and revise drawings while you are on location in the field, in meetings, or out of the office. Its primary use lies in viewing and sharing your CAD projects with fellow students, coworkers or clients via a quick, flexible and efficient medium. Work with local versions of your designs when you don’t have an Internet connection, and easily open DWG, DWF, and DXF files you receive as email attachments directly on your device.
