AutoCAD for iPad, iPhone, and iPod TouchI'm thinking this will make the iPad spread on building sites like a grassland fire. iPads work even ruggedized in plastic bags, you know! I've no idea if ACWS uses ordinary DWG files, but I think Graphisoft needs to make it the highest priority to give Archicad output/import file compatibility for this iOS viewer ASAP. Builders won't bother to have several viewers. If GS has something in their pocket, it needs to be much better - and must distribute now!
Autodesk also announced the AutoCAD WS mobile application, a new free app that will be available from Apple’s App Store. The AutoCAD WS mobile application will let AutoCAD users edit and share AutoCAD files on the iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch for real-time collaboration while on the go.

Quick suggestion list:
Update the library
Improve both drafting tools and modeling tools.....enough with buying a dozen add-ons for what should be in the software
A schematic design tool ala Sketch-up
A real site modeling tool - BTW GS buildings are actually built on soil not air
did I mention update the library?!?!?
lower your price......you will have to in order to keep market share.

Nemetschek has made clear in their press releases that they are a holding company and do (did) not have any plans to change anything about the management of any of the individual companies in which they have ownership interests. Maybe that has changed, but that is the last I read from them.
So, it is to Graphisoft that your comments should be aimed.

Autodesk is a holding company, so is Goldman Sachs but both magically (ok, no so magically) leverage the power of a singular brand identity.
Karl wrote:No Karl, I can't agree with that. The fact is, Nemetschek has the power. The fact seems, they don't use it. If that is their stated policy, all the more reason to call the responsible guys what Lazlo keeps [moderating] away. They do not leverage their investments. Knowingly! What kind of policy is that? It hurts their business, it hurts their customers (us), and
