Overall Satisfaction with AutoCAD mobile (formerly AutoCAD 360)

AutoCAD mobile is being used to view, edit, and amend drawings (simple edits) on the go. It is most useful when you need to reach out to the needed information outside of the office environment, in construction sites let's say or wherever you don't have easy access to the working station remotely or physically.
  • Viewing of DWG files on the go.
  • Editing files on the go.
  • Sharing edited files through different channels.
  • Lite version should be available for lower end devices.
  • Editing drawings is a complex and time consuming task (even simple edits).
  • Finding drawings on the mobile is a hassle.
  • Time spent on solving issues in site is reduced.
  • Lowering the amount of site RFI's.
  • Cost to utility ratio should be further examined before making the purchase decision.
Although there are lots of alternatives to AutoCAD mobile on the Google play store and the app store, many of these alternatives are not professionally developed and are associated with shady developers. So there might be a privacy or security risk with the usage these alternatives. However, DWG FastView is a worthy competing alternative.

Yes

Did AutoCAD mobile live up to sales and marketing promises?

I wasn't involved with the selection/purchase process

Did implementation of AutoCAD mobile go as expected?

I wasn't involved with the implementation phase

Would you buy AutoCAD mobile again?

AutoCAD mobile is best suitable to fetch information and access details whenever needed. If AutoCAD mobile is used on a tablet or high end device a lot of features can be utilized in addition to the basic viewing and editing. Although there are free alternatives to AutoCAD mobile these alternatives are usually laggy and full of bugs.
