  1. OK, the verdict is in. I bought the darn iPhone, despite not yet being "eligible" for the "upgrade", resulting in the thing costing astronomically more than they advertise it for. I was stuck – my 3rd Razr had given up the ghost in 2 years.And then I immediately downloaded this app – the one that finally swayed me to go iPhone vs anything else.Nice idea, but two limitations make it impractical for a professional designer, and indeed, for many others as well.1. It doesn't do fractional dimensions – whole inches only. Not even half inches.2. It won't let you do a fully custom room shape, only vary the dimensions and proportions of the several standardized shapes they offer.Problem 2 should be resolved in their next release, but they have had problems that mean that it is unlikely that there will be fractional dimensions any time soon.Damn.But it is way freakin' cool that you can even do this much on a little handheld computer, which is what the iPhone really is.
