A month or so ago we began testing our mobile app with a small test group.  The goal was to start small, streamline deployment and then open it up to all pre-production users.  Today we are ready to expand our mobile app testing to all Pre-production users in order to gather feedback and let you experience Onshape Mobile.



Currently we are going to open testing to all pre-production users for the iOS platform only and Android will be starting in the very near future.  In order to know which of you run iOS so we can add you to our TestFlight app (Apple's beta test platform), I will need you to fill out the following survey to get your info.  

Onshape Mobile Sign-up

Once we have your mobile preference, we will begin the mobile on-boarding process for you.  We look forward to your feedback and thank you again for helping us make CAD fun again!  ~Lou

    Hah... I am using windows phone platform.  Any chance you will support Windows 10?  I will install the technical preview for the phone next month if you guys said you were going to support it.  I suspect it might be a bit more popular in the future with the business crowd.  I wouldn't dance on their tombstone yet.

    +1 on Windows Phone!
    I'm loving my Lumia. Not trading it in for any other iOS/Android phone.

    @Pete Yodis At this point we are doing development on iOS and Android and will measure interest on any other platforms.  I will add you to that measurement...

    @LouGallo Thanks Lou.  Makes sense.

    @Dries I hear you on the Lumia.  Been rocking my 920 for two+ years now.  Love the awesome camera.  I prefer the simplicity of the interface for a phone, with the connection to the machines I use for business everyday.  I have remained in the Microsoft ecosystem and am quite happy I did.  I didn't want to start mixing ecosystems.  They have been doing some nice things in the last several years.  Windows 10 corrects the UI issues of Windows 8, I think.  The fact that it will be free to upgrade from Windows 7 will be a boon to businesses.  Seamless support of a Microsoft account with Office 365, Skype, OneDrive, etc... is pretty compelling.

    Seriously everyone, I have been one of the lucky few to get a play with this. IT ROCKS!!!!!!!! Beyond all expectations.
    CAD everywhere, on Crowded Buses, Planes, on the couch, and yes even the toilet :)

    Seconded!
    It is so awesome that I found little to no time to submit feedback... :)  (Sorry, Onshape team!)
    I think you are going to be very surprised by how accurate and fast the interface is. (I'm testing on iPad.)

    Me too. The ipad version is brilliant. Some intersting ways to get around the touch target thing...Im waiting for the ipad pro with Wacom stylus (wishing)

    If you have not played with the feedback tool, you can click on the ? menu and all you do it give it a title and type your comment.  I baked all the rest of the stuff in the background so you can just type, submit and get on your way.  Will be adding some screen capture in the future as well.  For now, submit the text and reply to the receipt email and attach your own screenshots. 

    Important to note, we will be pushing updates in sync with the web.  Some features might not be in mobile that debut on the web but we try to bring those into mobile in the following update or so.

    I hate to admit it, but I'm using my ipad every evening to design. Absolutely love it.

    Never thought I'd use such a tiny device, but it's super fast and easy once you figure
    it out the gestures.

    So back to the question. I use iPhone and iPad but am seriously looking into Android tablets for work as they are cheap like borscht. 
  • lougallolougallo Member, Administrator, Moderator, Onshape Employees, Developers Posts: 1,556
    @Ben I use both iOS and Android and the experience will be the same.  We are hoping to get Android out to Pre-production soon and so far in the early builds it is as impressive as iOS was at those stages.  Can't wait to get it out to you all to test when it is ready.

    Might have a new tablet sooner than later now.... 
  • julian_lelandjulian_leland Member, OS Professional, Mentor Posts: 59 PRO
    Also, on the topic of support for Windows mobile devices - enabling Windows touch functionality (well, touch functionality generally) in the OnShape desktop client would be HUGE. I'd love to be able to keep using OS when I've got my convertible laptop in tablet mode.
  • pete_yodispete_yodis OS Professional, Mentor Posts: 666 ✭✭✭
    @Julian Leland  You've got a point there.  I wonder if there could be a button to toggle the touch UI.  Office does this nowadays...



  • lougallolougallo Member, Administrator, Moderator, Onshape Employees, Developers Posts: 1,556
    @Julian Leland  We are tracking interest on touch...not just on Windows but touch devices using the web version to Onshape.  I currently use a Google Pixel and have been a big proponent of touch screen devices.  Currently we do not "listen" for touch events in the 3D area of the screen.  It does currently respond to any touch events on 2D elements but that is not going to do much from a modeling standpoint.  I am anxious to touch the screen for zoom, pan and even sketching..  If you have interest in this, let us know so I can add you to the measure.

    @LouGallo - I'm 100% interested. I'd like to have the full interface be touch-aware and implement the mobile interaction paradigm (hold touch to bring up recticle, two-finger tap for right-click, etc.)

    Windows Phone here.  A Windows 10 universal app would be great.
