Geometry Pad 2.7.0 is now available on Apple App Store and Google Play. Here is what’s new.
The protractor tool lets you measure angles. You can also draw lines at an angle. When tool is active you should see two lines displayed: base line and angle line. You can move the base line’s end and middle points to align it with a line or other objects. You can then move the end point of the angle line to measure an angle.
Protractor’s angle line has three different modes of operation controlled by the button displayed in its middle point. The default mode is rotation used to measure angles. If you tap the button you can also activate drawing or resizing mode. When in drawing mode, you can draw lines at the current angle by dragging the end of the line. Resizing mode lets you change the length of the line angle without changing its angle.
Parallel and Perpendicular Lines
Parallel and perpendicular snapping was replaced by three dedicated tools: Parallel Line, Perpendicular from a Point and Perpendicular to a Point.
You can now export the entire document to SVG format.
New version of Geometry Pad is available for download at the App Store.
Store Geometry Pad documents in your iCloud account. Sync documents with ease between all of your iPad devices. Especially useful with our new Geometry Pad for Mac. Switch between your Mac and iPad to work on Geometry Pad documents stored in iCloud.
Redesigned shapes window allows easily view the entire list of shapes in your document. Show/hide/lock/unlock shapes with a single touch. Edit the list to easily remove shapes you don’t need anymore.
As always we keep working on fixing bugs and making minor improvements based on your feedback. Let us know if anything is missing and we’ll consider it for one of the future updates.
Today we are happy to announce that Geometry Pad is now available on Mac computers. Geometry Pad for Mac is based on the latest version of Geometry Pad for iPad and has all of the graphing features of the latter (except maps). In addition, it looks and feels like a standard Mac application. It takes full advantage of multiple document windows, fullscreen mode, printing, and iCloud. Try it today and let us know what you think!
Today we are excited to introduce Geometry Pad 2.4.0. It brings a few new features, the most prominent of which are listed below.
It is now possible to insert a map into your document (premium feature)! You just need to select Import Map from the bottom menu and choose the region you’d like to import. The image of the map region will be inserted into the document and displayed below the grid lines by default. The following operations are available:
- All object measurements are calculated in relation to the map scale. Device default units are used to represent the values: feet or meters.
- Drag the map around your coordinate system. You can start dragging by using the tap-hold-drag gesture. Or, by tapping the map and selecting the Move Map command. Either way you’ll be able to change the location of the map image in relation to your coordinate system.
- Move the map level up or down. You might need this feature if you want to display the map image on top of the grid lines or on top of all other objects. Both of the commands are presented when you tap a map.
- The map is automatically saved into your document. Please note that the document’s size with a map will be noticeably larger than the size of the same document without a map.
- The current scale is displayed in the bottom right or top right corner.
- To delete a map just tap it and select Delete.
Here is what a document with a map looks like:
An image can be imported (premium feature) the same way as a map. Working with images is very similar to working with maps. You can drag an image around, move it a level up or down, and draw geometric objects on top. Object measurements will still be calculated in logical units since an image doesn’t have any information about real world coordinates.
It is now possible to input some of the math symbols when changing text annotations or metric labels. For now we chose the most important ones like angle, triangle, degree, squared, pi, square root, some greek symbols. But we’re looking to extend the selection. Please let us know what you think!
It is now possible to change sides and angles in special triangles and quadrilaterals: right, isosceles, and equilateral triangles; and squares, rectangles, parallelograms, and rhombuses.
Full support of iOS 7
The Geometry Pad design was updated to match the iOS 7 theme. Please see the screenshot below:
