Live Home 3D from BeLight Software is a very popular application for those who are interested in home design and want to visualize home modifications before they are implemented. With the app, you can draw a floor plan and then view it in 3D to try out future designs. It’s a bit like “The Sims”, but for your own home and for real design projects.

Room Scanner uses LiDAR in the iPad Pro and iPhone 12 Pro models and scans the walls of a room with an accuracy of 97% or better, detecting all surfaces in the room and recreating them.
