Layout apps

Postby Stokestation12 » Fri Oct 11, 2019 8:07 am

Hi all,
Was wondering if there are any apps for layout building?
I'm aware of scarm and other windows applications, but was wondering if there was anything that could be used on a mobile or tablet as my laptop is dead and funds are short!

There is always online! Trax is, as far as I am aware, the only online track planner.

I does take a little bit of getting use to, and so far I've not figured out how to do gradients. And they don't seem to have curved points (In N gauge at least!)

Yes, I highly recommend Trax (https://www.traxeditor.com/), it's a great free option. If you're using it on a tablet I would expect it to be awkward, although remember that most tablets you can actually plug a USB mouse into them (if you have the right adapter) which would give you a more familiar experience.
