The Architizer website brings to attention RoomScan, a smartphone app that lets you create a floor map just by placing your smartphone on each respective wall. The entire process takes a matter of minutes and functions using the smartphone's built-in hardware. The app's iTunes page is here.

"One would be forgiven for thinking RoomScan Pro was something of black magic,” says a review on 148apps. The app-magicians Locometric use the in-built hardware of the iPhone (presumably features like the gyroscope) to record the positions, lengths, and orientations of walls. Although you may not want to build a house with this app alone, the resulting plans are accurate within about half a foot?which is all you really need when making rough sketches. For improved accuracy, the “pro” version provides users with the option to manually input their own measurements and add features like doors and windows.
