Review: Floor Plan Creator is a neat way to lay out a house

Lay out your dream home using your Android tablet or phablet with the help of Floor Plan Creator.

Floor Plan Creator includes almost too many tools and grids to help you lay out your home. It's not very easy to use on small-screen phones, though, as it will get too cluttered too quickly. However, if you have a tablet or phablet and want to picture a home's layout before you move or make big redecorations, this is a great way to do it.

The app starts you off with one floor plan so you get the hang of things. Playing with this floor plan is definitely recommended before you start your own, or else you might mess things up when you're drawing. Luckily, you can save after you make any adjustment to prevent a disaster. You can add different levels, furniture, and other goodies to layout your home. Putting a new layer into Floor Plan Creator and getting it sized to scale usually only takes a few seconds. As you're creating, the app automatically syncs to an online folder so you can grab your floor plans from any gadget. Once you're finished, you can share your creation to any social network and other online sites.

When users call an app seamless, this is exactly what they mean. Floor Plan Creator is so easy to use that it's almost automatic. You'd be hard pressed to find a more useful app to lay out your home on the Google Play store. You certainly won't find one that incorporates as much style.
