Montréal / Munich, 11.04.2019 –  We have just released a major iOS update: magicplan 8 (iOS only). magicplan 8 lets you scan rooms in 3D and automatically recognizes, locates, and sizes windows and doors.

Furthermore, for iOS and Android, we have redesigned and improved the floor plan editor. And last but not least, we have improved the magicplan Cloud.
