Optimised for trades people as welll as building professionals such as architects, building designers, shopfitters, cabinetmakers facility managers and anyone that wants to build or design anything from flawless dimensional takeoffs.

Thanks, Eduardo. I was tired and had gone to the Mac App Store
Just found it on iTunes and on the iPhone/iPad App Stores ... under "iCad' (I had searched for 'sitecad', the name given in Laszlo's message and web site, vs the iCad in his subject line. US$48 seems reasonable for what I saw in the video. I did not see the feet/inches that Andro55 saw in the video, but see it now in the screenshots in the app store. Hopefully data entry has a shorthand as in AC so that we do not have to type the feet or inch symbol.
Sure looks promising and seems like a brilliant niche. Look forward to reading more reviews as people try it out.

I bought ICAD and tested with some plans. During import to ArchiCAD as ifc are some problems. In Solibri model displays exactly. With use the PDF files that ICAD also generates, in a relatively simple way to speed up the inventory of buildings. Now I plan to replace my rangefinder for new with an option for bluetooth.
I just bought iCAD and found out after installation on an iPAD that the bluetooth function to connect to a Leica Disto does not as yet work on iPADs and I am supposing iPhones.
I phoned RedStick and they indicated they are working on trying to fix it but it is a problem with Apple not allowing it to connect to the Leica unless they use a proprietary apple chip
It will however work on Android tablets. Otherwise it looks very promising so far.

I have been using this for a while now. I like it because it means you get it right while you are still on site.
I have found the IFC import buggy but if you open the IFC directly into archicad (i drag the IFC and drop it onto my archicad icon) the windows come in correctly, I then just cut paste into template.
Also you will want to merge walls as they come in broken at each junction.
I have been very impressed and am considering buying the pro verison.
