LocoMetric Floorplan App

If you’ve ever had to draw a floorplan for a room or an entire building, you know how time consuming it can be.

If you’re in the real estate or construction industry and work with floorplans on a regular basis, checkout an iPhone app called RoomScan Pro.

RoomScan uses the sensors in an iPhone to quickly generate a floorplan just by placing the phone on each wall in a give room.

You simply place your phone on a wall and wait for a beep and then move to the next wall to continue the process.

When you make it back to the original wall, you’ll get a double beep to complete the measurements and build your floorplan on the fly.

You can build an entire homes floorplan using that app and it even has features for situations where you may not be able to reach a wall.
