It was easy to predict that certain programs would eventually be adapted to the mobile environment. However, some others have been a complete surprise, as is the case with AutoCAD.
Similar to other applications that have been successfully adapted, Autocad is not content with being just a file browser, but innovates by providing features specifically designed for the purpose it will be used for. The app allows intuitive and easy editing and sharing, as well as quick markup tools. And, since you may be working far afield, if you saved your drawings when you were online you can work on them later offline.
AutoCAD WS does not replace the laptop that any architect or interior designer should carry nowadays, but it can be a valuable tool for getting on with some work while moving from A to B.
It requires Android 2.1 or above, and 1GHz processor and 512MB RAM are recommended, so older Android phones and tablets can't handle it.
Our final word on the matter is pretty clear: if you need AutoCad because you already were using it, go ahead. If not, don't expect to learn how to use such a complex program with this mobile version.
