Room Planner on new cell phone


Recommended Posts

I don't want to open a Pandora's Box and the preference war between Apple vs. everyone else. However, my cell phone is in the process of dying and I have to replace it. In trying to think ahead, I am considering both the iPhone 6s Plus (5.5" screen) and the Galaxy S6 (5.7" screen).


My primary concern is the practical use of Room Planner on a cell phone and interfacing with a Bluetooth laser, especially the E7100i that I just recently bought for this purpose. Will they communicate effectively?


Second question is, will Room Planner functionally work on a cell phone for as-builts with its smaller screen? Is it a waste of time and should I go the tablet route (more money of course since I still have to upgrade my cell phone)?


Any input would be appreciated. I posted this on the Room Planner forum also.


Thanks, Mike

      I saw people where using laser on job site for remodelling process and that we can integrate measurements directly on Chief Architec. I am using a MaxOS system and therefore it looks difficult to get the proper tool. Leica X3/X4 with their application disto transfert doesn't work with apple product. Other people have the same issue?
      Any solution ?

      I have been using the Room Planner mobile app on my iPad for years and now it’s no longer available in the App Store so I suspect it might get glitchy and whenever I get a new iPad I won’t be able to download Room Planner on it, and so I guess I better get going with some alternative with the same features. What I love about the Room Planner mobile app is that it’s not a ‘game’ like a lot of the other ‘3D Planner’ type apps that I have been trying out. I don’t need a replacement app to be free, but I also don’t have $1799 to spend for a desktop version. I use the app for interior design. 
      Can anyone recommend an alternative mobile app that is as awesome or almost as awesome as Room Planner is/was? Thank you!

      Has anyone used the bosch laser tape measure with the chief architect? I am curious about which laser tape will integrate smoothest with the chief architect X11 software. Thanks in advance Doug Boitz.
      When I upload a 360 panoramic to my chief architect account and then I share the media via a link and then I click on the link I should be to be able to open and maximize the screen and tilt the 360 up and down and if I wanted to and turn the phone and view in order to put the goggles on it now does not work.

      Does anyone no how to reliably pair an iPad 3rd generation with a Leica E7100 for use in Room Planner? When I go into Room Planner and select Bluetooth Devbices it does not appear. It also doesn't appear in my Bluetooth settings area as an available device. Thx
