Not worth it yet, do not buy

The app works, mostly. But it's not very smart about pen and touch input. The tools are clunky and difficult to reach. It still hasn't been updated for Windows 10. It frequently bugs out. It can't export or save large files. Image export does not export the graph lines. It's exactly the kind of app I need, but in its present state it is more frustration than it's worth. A pen and paper and scanner is better, faster, and cheaper.

Very frustrating

So much potential to this app, very smooth and powerful, but the user interface and control scheme frustrates to no other end. Would be perfect for wiring diagrams and such.

A great app for a great price!

This is not AutoCAD, so don't expect AutoCAD. Do, however, expect a great and functional CAD program that does a lot for a small price. When you have several people that need to make basic drawings, but not the hundreds and hundreds of dollars for an Autodesk product, BTTDB shines! Its fairly easy to use and, once you get used to moving around through it, you can get a lot done fast. Excellent!

Works well for simple drafting projects.

This app works really well for 2D drafting projects. I have used it for planning shelving projects, furniture plans, and landscape plans. The touch inputs take a little getting used to. Overall for an inexpensive app this works really well.

Lots of potential but not user-friendly

This program looks like it could have lots of potential to be a powerful program but unfortunately it's not very user friendly. I am constantly drawing lines by accident or connecting a new point to the last point. I doubt they've ever did any kind of testing with users completely new to the product and watch how frustrating it is to learn. Nothing is intuitive about this program. Hopefully they improve it's usability.

Amazing Drawing/Design Tool for Cheap Price

It's quite a surprise to see how sophisticated of a drawing tool you can buy for little money.

Great Program, If it worked every day.

Exactly what I need in a drawing program. Simple but capable. Unfortunately it has days when it randomly decides not to open giving no error message or explanation. Destroys my workflow and productivity. Would have 5 if it worked all the time. The one problem it has is big enough to drop it to 1.

Excellent program for novice users like me

Good tutorial that provides basic information. There are lots of features that are probably not well explained -- would be helpful to have more elaborate tutorial/documentation. Would also be helpful to have a secondary market for designs that have been done. I do not know how folks would get paid but the idea still has merit.
