6 Promising New Apps for Design Professionals

'Forget clipboards and cameras," says Heidi Moore. She spotlights six new apps (and five 'tried-and-tested' ones) that can solve your measuring, note-taking, and networking needs on your phone.

Here are a couple of the apps that industry professionals recommended as "the latest and greatest" digital tools to assist design professionals:

My Measures & Dimensions Pro: ideal for taking field measurements. "Users on a jobsite can 'snap a picture … add dimensions, and then send [it] out to a supplier or carpenter,' says Chris Denby, Marketitecture CEO. The app calculates angles, areas, and volumes based on the image and user-entered dimensions."

Morpholio: an app for presentations, networks, and inspiration. "This app allows design professionals to share work and exchange feedback. Post images and view curated galleries for ideas with the Pinup feature; track audience interest with EyeTime; modify projects with co-creators using Crit; and much more."
