Pretty darn good.
Designing a CAD app you can use easily on something as small as a phone can't be easy, but this one seems to work quite well. I haven't really used it much yet, but so far I'm impressed. It hasn't crashed on my iphone4, and it has most of the features of a desktop 2D CAD program. The developers should utilize the retina display on iphone4/ipad2 and put text labels (or an option for it) on the tool buttons so its easier to learn whats what. I would like to be able to double tap an object to open its attributes and set them: Like how SolidWorks has the user free-draw entities and then set their attributes after creation. This menu could also include a checkbox (which would open a sub-menu) to add drafting features to that entity such as xdist/ydist, length, radius, etc. I think this would be the easiest way to add dimensions to a drawing on a touch-based system. This version is very good for creative design, but needs a little more work to be an efficient app for creating architectural or mechanical drawings.

Getting better all the time
I have been working with this for the past month. The newest version downloaded today (1.42) treats a group object very strangely (not sure if this is new or was also true with the earlier version). It appears that it ignores the group when aligning or scaling. The individual object selected to get the group is the only thing affected. Cannot scale a grouped object at all. Setting up the scale BEFORE doing any work is a must until the scaling issue can be fixed. I appreciate the ALIGN feature, esp. if the group thing is fixed. I figured out how to use the coordinates to align (clumsy but extremely accurate - a bit of yin and yang), and the Duplicate and Move function. I enjoy the app, and am getting it figured out - some different characteristics, but most of them can be figured out.

Complex, but worth the time to figure out...
This app is clever and well designed. It's sort of like a complex version of ms paint. It took me a while to understand how to draw just a filled circle, let alone where to find color. However, once I found what I was looking for, and figured out which movements were required to get the desired effect, I was on my way. Havent checked out the tutorial yet, though. Worth your time if you are paitient and willing to learn. If you want something simple, for a child for example, then dont bother. Theres a learning curve here.

Great mechanical drafting tool
Just what I was looking for. I'm a mechanical engineer and wanted to be able to make reasonably precise sketches while in meetings. This let's me do that. I can even edit x y coordinates of features. For a free tool, it has excellent capabilities.

Don't get this app
Why spent hours drawing a tree when you can a easily draw a horse on a computer? Some versions come with a drawing app called paint. You can download in on your computer too, depending on what version your computer is.

WOW
I would totally give this  if you had an option to have the lines connect to each other, or not. The lines always connect to each other making it frustrating. Make an option to have that enabled or disabled, it'll be five star.
