Hi. I have never felt an urge to buy an iPad until the iPad pro. It really is a fantastic device ...

pro's:
- bright, sharp, fantastic screen
- fast
- the keyboard is surprisingly pleasant to use
- apps to definitely try: BIMx Pro, Bluebeam Revu, Trace, PlanGrid, autocad 360 (yes, that too)
- the pencil feels very natural and is very responsive - so the promo videos are telling the truth

Con's:
- the pencil - the front end works great but I just can't over the other end - no 'eraser' function like a Wacom, really awful idea to take off a cap (which will get lost) and plug in to the iPad like a tadpole tail which I spend the whole time waiting to break off, especially if the iPad is propped up in some way - really, very surprised that these got through an Apple design process
- some apps look 'zoomed in' because of the increase in screen size but I suppose this will improve in the next round of updates

I am still to try Remote Desktop to Windows and Mac for a potential 'remote desktop' computer experience

I have no problem with its large size. It has now replaced my 11" MacBook Air as my portable device and has a very similar footprint

I am thinking of buying a iPad Pro as my mobile device, will I be able to work on Archicad 19 on it?

Thank you.

I am a student in urban planning and architecture. Next year I will have to travel often for school and I was thinking of purchasing an ipad Pro as my mobile device instead of an macbook pro. However I am unsure if I will be able to work on Archicad on it. If anyone use is it, please advice.

Thank you

No. AC is not designed to run in iPad.

Thanks, I was happy for a little while that I would spend half the money:-)

Just a bit more info: the iPad Pro is based on a totally different processor from the Intel/AMD processors of PCs. The iOS is a totally different OS from MacOS. So GRAPHISOFT would basically have to port the whole of ARCHICAD to iOS for ARCHICAD to run on iPad Pros.

It’s ok with me!
port away Graphisoft.
They will have to do it someday anyway.

What will be interesting is when Apple starts using their own processors instead of Intel processors.
I am wondering if that will make it easier to develop the same program for both desktop/laptop (macOS) and phone/tablet (iOS).
We will see.

I'm wondering if this is why the routine iMac updates haven't happened this year...
