Noshayme's Review of Morpholio TraceReviewed on 9/6/18 5:43 AM
There is no way to try this out properly and see what is has it does NOT have in potential unless you pay for the app which makes me suspicious that the app developers don't want to show what it can do for free because it's not much and you'll never buy it
G-man711's Review of Morpholio TraceReviewed on 9/5/18 12:50 PM
I’m an absolute novice when it comes to design. I am sure this app is great if that is your niche. All I want to do is have an app to easily draw possible renovations in my home. Sure I could take the time to learn the tools provided in the app. It might be just want I need. But in order to pay a monthly subscription to use all the features is greedy. For some it might be worth it. It’s not for me. Why not a flat fee up front? A pencil and paper would actually be cheaper and easier to use. An electronic app is nice if you don’t want to waste resources and storage space. I guess it would also help you better visualize a 3D environment.

I tried this app a few days ago was playing around till the circle proctor tool , it was exactly what I been looking for in a drawing tools over the years None of the apps could proved such simplicity, precise accuracy and easy to use in 2 Sec however I don’t know there a trial period for the app even with basic functions I Do love drawing circle with this app it’s help me to relax from over stressing

I love this application but not all is great. I am giving it 4 stars because I don’t find the videos necessarily helpful when I am trying to learn more about the software. I wish the developers would focus on developing user friendly training videos so the user can max out on the capabilities of the application and truly enjoy the experience.
Taylorzor's Review of Morpholio TraceReviewed on 9/3/19 1:46 PM
Edited review from 2 to 3 stars. This is a raster based product, so don’t expect the crispness and retro-editability of other software like the Concepts app. Requires careful layer management in a photoshop style of working, which is complicated by the fact that the layers are designed to act like trace sheets. So if you hit the edge of the trace sheet your line might get pushed to a different layer. I’m cool with the trace sheets concept, it should really be an unlimited canvas though. Then again, big vector apps can get bogged down by large PDF’s and infinite canvases and this app wont. Once you get past the learning curve this app starts to shine. Still, while this app can be useful, it has some other quirks that I hope the developer polishes out. For example - the pen tool combined with the ruler is perfect for drafting crisp lines. But the eraser tool does not work with the ruler. So you can draw a straight line, but you can’t erase a straight line. I suppose you could use a stencil to get around this issue. Also, no ability to put in dimensions? This is the one missing feature that I am scratching my head over. Finally, avoid the undo button. It’s slow and buggy. Just use the eraser. Despite the issues, it’s very much worth learning.

Trace is helping me draw landscape plans on the iPad with ease. I’m trying to go paperless. Drawing the plan over a survey photo is convenient. The scaling tool is a game changer. Rendering the plan in my own distinct style is much easier than bringing out all my pencils and markers. I’ve just started and I’m hoping it will become second nature. I look forward to learning the AR to make helpful perspectives soon.

Morpholio Trace Pro, in combination with an iPad Pro, allows me the simplicity of developing new ideas with a roll of trace and the facility of being able to quickly share those ideas electronically with clients, contractors and consultants. The folks at Morpholio, however, haven’t rested on their laurels, and continue to develop Trace into a more powerful drawing platform by continuously adding new and innovative features. It’s one of the top indispensable apps on my iPad.

robinvt's Review of Morpholio TraceReviewed on 9/3/19 1:46 PM
Trace is a remarkable set of tools in a really small package. I’m an older architect, by no means facile with the current set of CAD-BIM tools, and I’m enjoying using this... although hardly to any high level. The tools take some work to figure out, and explanations of how to do so are not always clear. But, that probably helps internalize usage once you do figure it out. Trace is wonderful for conceptualization at scale.

I just wanted to work on redesigning my kitchen.Paid for the the pro but never figured I’d get past free. There are no directions. I simply wanted a grid that I could move boxes aroundthese would be my oven , fridge, stove, cupboards, table, chairs, etc. I could color pictures like I use to for other homes I’ve redesigned. I thought this would be easygoing but for hell I’ll just go back to crayons if this doesn’t click for me soon

Yves Yi's Review of Morpholio TraceReviewed on 9/3/19 1:46 PM
I bought their pro version and paid on Dec. 2018 for a year subscription, but they cancelled my membership without any notice or reason and I don’t have membership now, which means I paid $19.99 for month while it showed the subscription is $19.99 for a year........ wondering why... I am still not able to use all the functions. More important, I can’t even draw a simple line rather than dotted lines. As an architect, this is really not helpful. When I using the perspective tool, I can’t even draw a vertical line........ I really don’t like dotted or dash lines, all I want is to draw a simple straight line without any dashes....I tried everything to find where the function is, but they only have 3 types of lines you can draw, which is dotted, dash, and dash-dot line....................... Just want for a line. How hard is that? It drove me crazy every time when I use this app.... Paid $19.99 for nothing....and I tried to contact them to ask about this problem....no replies at all....

Getting a reply from customer service is painstaking. For me non existent Be very careful with what you purchase. I purchased the PRO upgrade on my iPhone because my Apple money is stored in its account. However the upgrade will not work on my other devises including my iPad Pro where I do my work. I have sent emails directly to individuals and to the “community“ and zero reply. I guess Morpholio expect our lives to be placed on hold while they find time to reply.

Just an amazing app for anyone in the iterative process of design. Intuitive handling of the layer system, very rare crash and if it happens there is little loss. Has changed my process to rely mainly on iPad, Morpholio, and Pages. Would love to see the following additions: Snap grid settings, Transparency in fills, search for files, refinement of pens for detail work.
dontcareever's Review of Morpholio TraceReviewed on 9/15/18 3:46 AM
* Image export is broken. Only exports the yellow background and nothing else * You cannot export vector graphics * You cannot file feedback without setting up horrible iOS email * You cannot draw precise plans. Uses the metaphors of pen and paper without trying to be a real dad This is a nice try, but anything but a cad program. And yet another app that tries to s**** is users with a subscription model. On top of everything it locks you in by having to create an account. Good luck when you stop paying for that subscription. Since there is no vector export you basically loose your data. Last, speaking of data security. You cannot even delete the account that you are forced to create. Lol. Bunch of amateurs.
mdlgto2's Review of Morpholio TraceReviewed on 9/14/18 5:31 PM
This was my untold want...it was a joy to find trace. It is a joy to use. As a landscape designer I was craving a way to bring life to cad drawings as well as a way to quickly and elegantly propose concepts to clients using cad files. morholio trace does both. I just got it yesterday and already feel I can do the above. It is an intuitive and beautiful app. Cut and copy functions would be great..as some critiques have noted. Critiques wishing it were a vector graphic program are unclear on the concept. Note, really helpful to have as big a screen as possible, for me, it made springing for the 12.9” iPad Pro a no brainer.

I very much enjoy this app. I use it for designing from scratch or over existing pdf drawings. It’s a great way to sketch various options for design. Simply sketch one version, add a layer and sketch another adoption. With some practice the sketches can be used not just for translating design within your design team but for client presentations as well. I use it often and enjoy it every time!
Samhunt17's Review of Morpholio TraceReviewed on 8/17/18 8:49 PM
I am an architect and have used the app daily for over a year. Obviously, if I have done so I enjoy the app and overall it is very useful. However, I have become less and less tolerable of all of its faults. As a raster based sketching app it lacks some basic features such as cropping/cutting/duplicating/moving portions of sheets. It is like real trace sketching but it should be even more like photoshop in my opinion. The biggest disappointment is the lack of development. Features have been requested for a long time and some have been “coming soon” for years. Also, support communication is three times what is typical. Last time I hand an inquiry during a time crunch it took them 15 days to respond, which in my opinion is unacceptable.

My employees have been telling me for almost a year that I needed to get this program and start working with TRACE. It has been literally a game changer, allowing me to work faster, save costs on printing and scanning, and free up their time also. I have only been using it a few weeks and I can already see how it is going to change the way I work and allow me to do more in shorter time, especially once I start exploring some of the expanded functions in Pro.

Love this program. One thing I wish was possible was a more refined way to position the ruler, particularly if working out perspective lines. If I use a real rule I can lay one finger on one end and rotate the other end into position. The current two fingered angling is too sensitive.

Mikezots's Review of Morpholio TraceReviewed on 5/30/18 1:19 AM
All these pricing plans and NONE gives the period (month, year...?). Try selling a car like that and see how far you get! Probably not very, since leasing w/o price and time period is probably illegal, and certainly unethical! Still no decent layer control in the Export module - can’t group layers into separate plans without going back and forth to the main window. Ugh. What a time waster! Layer sheets don’t consistently fall in the same place. When I use real tracing paper, I use the same overlay position for each iteration/sketch. So why does this app move new sheets? Result: inconsistent paper size on export. Aaarrgh! More extra work! Text is a pain to keep consistent, too. Workaround: add text in separate pdf editor where font size is constant.
Justin Mr.'s Review of Morpholio TraceReviewed on 5/3/18 4:18 PM
I have been using this app for about a month, which is about as long as I have my own office. This app is great. It really takes the power of iPad and Pencil and makes a tool that really is powerful and intuitive to use for marking up drawings and sketching out ideas. The big game changer is using PDFs with multiple sheets. Now every time I have a call or meeting I open the set in Trace and we make real time sketches, take notes and can send out a PDF of the set in seconds. With anything that is new and great this app will only get better as it grows. I have submitted a bunch of suggestions and hopefully they will get implemented. This really could be one of the few apps I will ever need to use. Thanks Morpholio!

DJF_IS's Review of Morpholio TraceReviewed on 4/15/18 6:22 AM
I enjoy Trace on my iPad Pro (w/ Apple Pencil) as well as other programs like Concepts, and AutoDesk’s SketchBook, but none support multiple pages. As an artist and product designer, I digitally sketch all the time and import photos, renderings, and maps, BUT having to create a new “Project” for every sketch is very cumbersome, time-consuming, and slows down my workflow. To me, a single sketch with layers isn’t a “Project.” A project typically has many “Pages” or “Drawings.” And while I use Morpholio Journal for day-to-day notes/sketching as well, it has very limited tools. Ideally, I’d like Trace and Journal combined, while still allowing both to act as their own stand-alone products. Imagine being able to flip through multiple pages in Trace, then be able to flatten and export the entire set of pages as a PDF to send to clients and consultants! It would REALLY be powerful. I’d use it all the time. Maybe one day. Until then, each sketch is considered a single “Project.”

AjBezark's Review of Morpholio TraceReviewed on 3/23/18 5:48 PM
This is a nice app, with nifty features that make it easy to generate professional architectural-style sketches. BUT... in order to access anything beyond the most basic features, Morpholio requires a monthly/yearly subscription. I don’t mind paying a one-time in-app fee for “pro” features, but subscription software smacks of pure greed. There are certain subscription-based services that make sense: streaming video, for instance, burdens the developer with ongoing costs, so it’s fair that users support that cost. But Morpholio isn’t offering anything in exchange for their subscription other than the right to use their standalone app. This isn’t a trend I want to encourage, so I won’t be using Trace.

As an architect, this is one of my favorite tools now. Granted, nothing will replace pen and paper but for what it is, it is the best tool ever to iterate designs. It has a small learning curve but overall a very very intuitive program to design with day to day, whether it be a small landscape project, or a large mixed use building, the possibilities are endless. Custom create stencils with a touch of a button, 1,2,3 point perspective tools that help incredibly, and allows for you to use a plethora of layers. The exported files are of beautiful quality and its just super helpful tool when dealing with clients, having discussions, and/or just for play.

4.5 Stars - Very good, incredibly powerful and practical. Can make the lead portion of the design process very efficient. While the APP continues to improve (the AR additions with iPhone X are great!), there are still a few things that can be done. The file access between Trace in your phone and that on your iPad is not fully functional. How about taking a layer from one project and moving it over to another project? In spite of these comments, highly recommended for any Design Lead who is serious about making the creative process productive and effective!

Reader18's Review of Morpholio TraceReviewed on 2/12/18 1:05 PM
Wanted to try this on the recommendation (should I sales letter?) sent by the iTunes/App Store which is usually very helpful. This time however I felt SCREWED! After signing into “morph” i was informed it was only a seven day trial. In seven days I would not have had time to determine if it was worth the $19.99 subscription rate hidden in what had appeared to be a free app with in app tools to purchase. I am getting very annoyed by the use of this new policy of bait and switch techniques on the part of developers implying their apps are free. Clearly most are not. Which in truth is fine, but be honest and explain your cost(s) upfront. Speaking for myself (and several other users as well as beta testers I have worked with) people are much more likely to support honest, clear explanations than a bait and switch. I deleted the app without trying it. Very dissatisfied too bad we can’t give zero-0 stars

MontyTS's Review of Morpholio TraceReviewed on 12/22/18 1:02 PM
Can’t find any doc of simple things like how to pickup a line and move it (which I now think is impossible... can only erase it). No undo for some actions to the macro scale (I.e., try to resize or rotate the layer... can’t undo that. At least the few times I tried it. Perhaps there’s a less intuitive way ??) As a new user that is very familiar with Sketchup and AutoCad, I was expecting a few similarities like object manipulation. But it’s really like a digital pencil/pen, you basically have erase or (limited) undo. Pretty awesome program in a lot of ways, but not the only tool in the arsenal based on many of the limitations. Still, recommend getting it for those few perfect applications like tracing over an image, to make mods, etc. that works really well.

ArchitectBuilder's Review of Morpholio TraceReviewed on 12/17/18 1:10 PM
Work with new iPad Pro. Confirm button at top right corner is not active within available screen area Ok, my mistake. New iPad Pro requires pressing the power button (on the edge of the iPad) to confirm App Store purchase, but the graphic icon looked like an on screen button that was partly above the screen edge. Apple tech support helped me understand what I was supposed to do—-but it puzzled them for a while too. I’m sorry for the first low rating. It was a moment of frustration. The new iPad is a stunning machine, but transitioning from a 6 year old iPad was way more work than I expected. As for Trace, I will need more time to assess its suitability for the work I do. That said I have no gripes at this point. I find it works as claimed. I had the free version on the old iPad but did not use it. It was akin to finger painting. The pencil is a world of difference.

Im an architect who’s been using digital drawing /modeling tools for way too many years. I find Trace one of the most clever and useful programs (apps) I’ve ever used. The simple elegance with which Morpholio has recreated the intuitive and haptic experience of drawing is stunning. As someone who travels frequently the ability to draw to scale in a mode that echoes the free workflow of layering trace on trace has made my plane time my most valuable time. Ive been using Trace for a few years now so have Ive also seen how well tended the app has been. Improvement after improvement have made Trace even more useful and robust while not losing the simple elegance of the original. Trace is simply amazing. Ive tested many, many drawing apps available for Ipad and nothing comes close to Trace.

Good app needs a few quick tweaks such as p r o c r e a t feature of tap and hold to draw straight lines and that on concepts with active line length as we draw. Wish I can switch on and off such features to have an amazing experience

The best app I’ve ever used. Period.
Broken arrow 65's Review of Morpholio TraceReviewed on 12/17/18 1:10 PM
Great program app & helpful instructions by engineers. However, I must agree with previous feedback about subscription fees. I’m mixed, but I understand Engineers constantly strive for improvement. I’ll digest it better when I master tools etc.
GSAPPer_00001's Review of Morpholio TraceReviewed on 12/17/18 1:10 PM
I've gone through several sketching apps for architecture and this is by far the best for three reasons. 1. Very easy to use 2. Custom stencils are amazing 3. Best export by a mile 4. MultiPagePDF markup is heaven. Layers and other tools are great as well. One improvement would be project folders. Other then that, it's perfect!!! LOVE

Morpholio is a great app to use when registering ideas and variations to a project. Really enjoy using it, and the free version is quite good
D.Martens's Review of Morpholio TraceReviewed on 12/17/18 1:10 PM
Love this app- use it frequently for conceptual and preliminary design. The only addition I think would be nice is to be able to insert a trace layer between other layers already developed- that way one could go back to work out design details then be able to finalize the presentation on the outer layer. Nice work!

Keep in mind i am not a sketch person or a architect. But from using the app within the first 30 minutes i am able to figure out what makes this app worst than using paper. I would never pay for the app as it is now. Beyond frustrating when a company makes a product that misses mark. Needs: Solid line pencil When using the Apple Pencil one fingers should move the canvas Hide the tool bars Those are just a few should haves. The next long list of improvements i won’t list because why should i pay for a product and help them make it better. How about they give the product for free and or pay the users until it is quality.

Fun to learn and fun to use.
RC in Berkeley's Review of Morpholio TraceReviewed on 11/19/17 2:33 AM
Fantastic software. Enormous number of amazing features with simple, clear interface. Great for architecture, but works for all types of sketching & product design. Works great with Apple pencil. Truly the experience I wanted 8 years ago for digital sketching, finally it all works at a professional level. Just try it - protractor/ruler is quick and easy to use. Imports photos nicely and just all works. Bravo!

I'm liking this.
snowman?'s Review of Morpholio TraceReviewed on 10/17/17 5:10 PM
Too quick to change something without actually wanting to, moving the sheets around proves too difficult and messy and not a smooth process. The color and size and opacity menus are difficult to use and not simple. The way the color pallets click as you scroll through them is unnecessary-they should move fluidly. Thank you

Great App. For Engineers & Designers
Radiofreemal's Review of Morpholio TraceReviewed on 10/12/17 7:00 PM
This app is fantastic. I use it extensively, for a wide variety of project scales. The interface is near perfect, the app runs without issue. I highly recommend it to any architect wanting to draw on a plane, in their living room, projected during a client meeting, or simply with the iPad on your lap kicking back in a chair. Mechanical drawing is freed up, and I for one am hooked.
sweetviolet79's Review of Morpholio TraceReviewed on 1/6/18 6:29 PM
I’m not an architect but I still wanted a simple app to help me plan a room in a small apartment. I thought this would let me rough sketch a scaled-down room, input measurements for furniture I own & find the most efficient layout. If this sounds familiar, move along. This horrid app is not user-friendly... unless you’re perhaps, a professional architect already familiar with similar programs. There are no instructions for use and no help tools. I tried to figure it out on my own. I used the ruler tool to draw a straight line (aka a wall), in trying to find out how to reposition the ruler to form a 90 degree corner, the ruler tool disappeared and tapping on the ruler tool button does not bring it back. The app developer should at least have included some sort of help section or include some sort of hint that this isn’t geared towards the average Jane/Joe just trying to map out a single room.
rich_blondes's Review of Morpholio TraceReviewed on 1/30/18 4:56 PM
Im not a pro at it by any means but I gave it a five. It's a little complicated at first, in comparison to some others and I really don't recommend it for the iPhone because it is really a professional app that any designer could benefit from. There is a learning curve. There are more simple apps that are probably better for beginners. I give it five stars because it is great in the fact it is so clean in its ui and for the short time Ive been using it, I believe it is perfect for someone to hold their best work. I think it would be a wonderful add for someone that is a professional designer of any kind. It's has to be a little complicated in order for it to have the features that it is packed with. I think once I learn more, and can intuitively know all of the tools and changing them when I need to, I will pay for it with my design projects. So if you know Morpholio well, and have the app mastered, you will be just as happy with the up dated version. You have a lot to look forward to. I'm going to play more with this app. One thing I wish I knew how to send my stencils to creative cloud, or to render a Psd file. It probably is able to be done but I am a novice in that department. Such a beautiful app

Great concept, great marketing, beta product.
S Waugh's Review of Morpholio TraceReviewed on 1/25/18 8:30 PM
Literally virtual trace paper with all the advantages of digital media. A thumbs up to the developers, it's gotten even better! Latest update is great! They really listened to the users.

I will buy an app... but pay you every F’n month? F that. Ridiculous business practice. What a waste of time looking back into this POS app.

I am testing the app as a trial at the moment and have a few questions that I can’t find answers for online. Your support page is down and I can’t find an email for you guys. How can I get in touch with your support team? Thank you for getting back to me! I’ll send you an email with a couple of questions. In the meantime, I subscribed to the pro version.

Great app! I use it to lay out site plans and mark up engineering plans. Indispensable!
Ounrg kundve's Review of Morpholio TraceReviewed on 1/13/18 3:46 PM
First off, I am not an architect, but I work in the construction field and have to work with architects a lot. That being said, this app is definitely designed by architects. You can tell by the focus on the art rather than precision. That’s not necessarily a bad thing. If this app had the ability to draw lines from typed in lengths, snap dimensions and angles, it would be perfect. The sample plan is a fine example, there is no actionable info on the whole drawing, it covers the gap between client and construction plans, no dimensions or angles called out. I am still giving the app a better than average star count because it is a good app, just be aware that it is geared towards concept design more than anything that is accurate.
Francosphotos1's Review of Morpholio TraceReviewed on 1/13/18 10:16 PM
I am an architect and I use Morpholio's Trace app every day in my practice. It is an excellent app that helps design professionals and artists bridge the gap between hand drawing with tracing paper and the paperless world of digital communication. I use it on my iPad Pro with the Appel pencil. It's intuitive and very powerful. It lets me draw to scale, render or color with a great selection of drawing tools. It saves me a lot of time by letting me save my overlay mark ups or new sketches to Jpeg and PDF files that I can then immediately email out to my staff and consultants. I highly recommend it !
