    "Super big fan of this app. I was in the middle of remodeling pretty much every room in my house, and this made it so easy to drag and drop in different combinations of furniture until I got it just right. Thoroughly recommend!"

    "Home Design 3D produces some great looking renders of what spaces will look like. The app itself can be a bit unstable, at times, though it appears the developers are looking to fix this issue - it's also not a terrible surprise, as it seems like a fairly resource-intensive app. It's definitely worth playing with before you decide to make any changes to your space."

    "Magicplan is a pretty neat little app that can help if you're trying a new project around the home. The controls can be a little finicky, especially if you're using an older phone like mine that doesn't have the best gyroscopic stabilization or a very large screen. Overall I'd say it's fun to play around with and can help inspire new ideas for your project, but it's not as reliable as physical tools that serve the same purpose."
