We have been overwhelmed by the response to last week's launch of the AutoCAD WS mobile app for the iPhone and the iPad. You can get the app now by going to the App Store page, or by visiting the AutoCAD WS mobile page.
Since the launch we have been consistently in the iTunes top 5 downloaded apps in the Productivity section which tells us we must be doing something right!
I thought this would be a great time to introduce the team that worked together to make it all happen.
I'm Jonathan, by the way, the R&D Manager for AutoCAD WS. I've been with this project since its inception. You can write to me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
First up, the Product Manager of AutoCAD WS, Iris Shoor. Iris was the originator of Project Butterfly which evolved into AutoCAD WS. She was the first with the vision to take a great product like AutoCAD and make it work on the web and on mobile devices. Iris is the key decision maker when it comes to determining which features will make it into the next version AutoCAD WS. So, Android-lovers, if you're serious about bringing AutoCAD WS to your platform, Iris is the one you need to be nice to! You can appeal to her directly here: email@example.com.
Niv Steingarten has been working on AutoCAD WS longer than any other developer. Niv is a veteran of late nights and early starts and he understands as much as anybody the huge effort that has gone into getting this release ready. As the project evolved and it became clear that the initial target for release was to be the iPhone and iPad, Niv was the one responsible for porting the project onto Apple's iOS. If you have any questions about the development of AutoCAD WS, why not write to Niv directly at firstname.lastname@example.org?
Shani is our queen of QA. While we're sure that AutoCAD WS had no more than its fair share of development hiccups, it was Shani that made sure that we identified as many issues as possible and eliminated each one prior to launch. As we strive to improve the product with each future release, Shani's experience will continue to be extremely valuable to the project. You can write to Shani here: email@example.com.
When it comes to the look and feel of AutoCAD WS, we couldn't have asked for a cleaner and more accessible design than Eviathar delivered. It was always his dream to design a successful iPhone app and his contribution cannot be overstated. Eviathar designed everything from the website to the app itself, exercising his considerable skills as designer without losing sight of the need to maintain a high level of functional usability. He welcomes your feedback here: firstname.lastname@example.org.
