eDrawings for the iPad isn't going to break your bank, Dozer789. It's a mere $1.99, and most design tools apps are offered any where from free of charge to up to $20 for some of the more full blown, pricier offerings. It's the iPad you need to save for.

I wish i had an ipad, need more money, this would be a very helpful thing it seems. How much does the app cost?

@Naperlou: Actually from what I hear, developing for Android right now is far more difficult than iOS/Apple because there are variances between the different Android flavors. They may not be huge discrepancies, but they are discrepancies so you need to go back and modify code to support the different platforms. That's why when you look at most mobile app providers' strategies, they do Apple first and Android next. At least, that's what the providers are telling me.

easy for tablets

Beth, this is an easy application for any of the current crop of tablets.  The 3D features are well established.  One thing I am not sure of is the statement about Android having multiple APIs.  Like iOS, Android is an operating system.  As such, it is the same on many platforms.  When developing for Android one may test on a couple of phones or tablets, but that generally is not necessary.  In the tablet market, Apple has the lead in installed units at present.  That may not be the case among engineering users, who like to get more involved with their equipment.  On the other hand, with new tablets from many vendors (including Google) coming out with features and performance equal to the iPad, I expect this market will evolve to be more like the PC market.  Apple will have a slice (ha ha), but people will get tired of paying the high price for a basically limited device.
