Excellent - i am 11 and decided to drain all my money on this. it a an amazing app, totally worth the money. i greatly enjoyed creating luxery apartments, houses, along with remodeling our house through this. i now can't get off my computer, im so into this. y mom says i should grow up and be an architect, but... if you're not so sure about buying this, then you definetly should. amazing. there are thousands of different awesome furniture. only problem is that when i import a car from googe 3D warehuse and drag it in front of my house it turns everyting outside my house into repeats of the picture. i like the grass better.
Useless for modeling a kitchen - Bought this to get a better idea of what the options are for remodeling my kitchen but I'm very disappointed. Doesn't have some of the most basic elements - dishwasher? Sure you can get some things from Google 3D warehouse, but a dishwasher. Come on. No trash compactor either. Options for cabinets are pitiful - and Google is no help here either. Also doesn't have textures appropriate to a kitchen. No stone or formica for countertops, for example. I was hoping this would be better than Ikea's free modeling tool, but it isn't. Save your money and go use the iKea tool.

Does the job - I've been planning my house project using this program and its not bad. Pretty easy to learn how to use, easy to navigate and make changes. The aesthetics could use some improvement, not the nicest furniture or cabinets, tubs, flooring etc to choose from, although it has been easy to download cool items from the online 3D inventory feature, all free as well. But overall you can really see what your house or project is going to look like. For the money I can't complain. Im definitely having fun putting everything together and "touring" the house. Definitely worth the money.
Not a bad app for the price - I would not agree that the app is very intuitive, but if you play with it a while you can create some pretty effective plans and 3D images. I wish it had more imagery, but like I say, not bad for the price.
