GUANGZHOU, China — (BUSINESS WIRE) — November 20, 2013 — ZWCAD Design, an innovative supplier of CAD solutions for the MCAD and AEC industries, has updated its free mobile design App, ZWCAD Touch, making it the first CAD App designed specifically for iOS7. As Apple set the trend for flat design in iOS7, the newly redesigned ZWCAD Touch also refreshed its UI design with a flatter appearance. By providing a cleaner approach to presenting content, ZWCAD Touch enables users to work in a more comfortable software environment, contributing to an improved experience for over 100,000 users around the world.
Refreshing UI Design with a Flatter Appearance
The use of flat design in web pages has been growing hugely in recent times, and the debut of iOS7 has confirmed its enhanced popularity. iOS7 took the textures, bezels and gradients out of the UI and replaced them with simple and clear design elements. The interface is much cleaner and sleeker, representing its commitment to creating an experience that is simpler, more useful, and more enjoyable.
A sense of familiarity is important for user experience, therefore ZWCAD Touch turned flat as well by striping down visual elements to highlight their essential functionality. The single background color makes all the content more distinct to users. By using different colors to indicate file formats, users can find out what they want with a single glance. Such UI refinement brings ZWCAD Touch simplicity and ease of use, and it works great for smaller screens, particularly mobile design.
“We are excited to be the first in the CAD design industry to provide an iOS7 CAD App,“ said Daniel Huang, Product Manager of ZWCAD+. “Aiming at providing our users with an up-to-date design experience, we decide to make a significant change to our UI to keep pace with this modern design. The flat UI helps users enjoy ZWCAD Touch in the same way as other iOS7 Apps.”
Improving Compatibility with iOS7
Some Apps in previous versions may have compatibility problems with iOS7. To ensure an optimal user experience, ZWCAD Touch optimized its compatibility to adapt to the new operating system. Improvements such as vocal message recording and folder creation have been added to provide a more fluent and efficient mobile design workflow.
