Autodesk launches AutoCAD for Mac, iOS
In a move guaranteed to make millions of Apple fanbois jump up and down with joy, Autodesk has announced that the next version of AutoCAD (2011) will return to the MAC, and even be accompanied by a new version called Autocad WS for the iPad and iPhone.
“The release of AutoCAD for Mac marks the return of professional design and engineering software to the Mac platform and an important convergence of power and design,” said Amar Hanspal, senior vice president, Autodesk Platform Solutions and Emerging Business. “Over 5000 customers have helped develop this product through our beta program and they are delighted to have the choice of a native Mac version of AutoCAD.”
It will support everything the windows version has, and even add in some new features for the new gesture-friendly interfaces Apple has released like the Magic Mouse and the Magic Trackpad.
