AutoCAD WS now available for the Kindle Fire

Image courtesy of autocadws.com
The AutoCAD WS blog announced today that AutoCAD WS is now available as an app for the Kindle Fire through the Amazon App Store.  It's the same as the "regular" AutoCAD WS Android app, but now you can get it through the Amazon App Store and it works on the Kindle Fire.  Good call Autodesk as the number of Kindle Fires in the wild will keep increasing.  Now, how about getting it on Barnes and Noble's Nook Color or Nook Tablet?  What?  Am I asking for too much?

Google has released a new app for Android and iOS devices called Google Currents.  It is a full featured tool that will bring your favorite feeds directly to you in one place.  Essentially it's a visual RSS reader, but with pretty pictures and nice mobile interface.  Just swipe back and forth to browse through articles, news sites, and now CAD-a-Blog.com.

Download the app to your iOS or Android device.  Pick the ADD MORE button in your library and search for CAD-a-Blog.  We are in the Science and Technology category.

This is yet another way to keep up to date on what's new in CAD-a-Blog.com.  If you don't want to use Google Currents you can always follow us on Facebook, Twitter, Google +, RSS feed or even sign up for old fashion email alerts.

Autodesk Design Review Mobile for Android Looking for Beta Testers

Autodesk Design Review is a great free program that can read, write, and mark up DWF files.  It can do many things.  It is meant as a digital markup tool for drawings.

A few months ago Autodesk released a mobile version of Design Review for the iPad on  Apple's iOS.  This was great  because it meant that marking up drawings in a mobile setting was very easy to do, but only on an iPad.  Fanboys!!  Upon its release, Autodesk did state that they were working on an Android version.   That was good news for real geeks like me that use Android.

All kidding aside, Autodesk is looking for some help testing Design Review Mobile on Android.  And for good reason.  Testing for the iPad  is easy. There are only two versions of the iPad to test (the iPad and the iPad 2).  Android on the other hand has several devices.  That means that Autodesk needs to make sure their app works on several pieces hardware, each having different hardware configurations and specs.

Autodesk is not guaranteeing that they will pick you for the program but if you have an Android device you have a shot at it.  Go to the sign up website and fill out the short form and wait.  That's it.  I signed up and hope to get in.

Good luck Android users!!
