OCAD Sketch App – Official Release

The OCAD Sketch App is officially released!

We would like to thank you for the many feedbacks and improvement requests. These motivate us to further develop the Sketch App and make it even better.

All information about the OCAD Sketch App is available at www.ocad.com/app.

What’s new with the release?

– The app is now available in Google Play Store and Apple App Store. Search for OCAD Sketch.

– When uploading data from OCAD Desktop to OCAD Cloud Transfer, a link will be generated in addition to a QR Code. This link can easily be sent to the mobile device, e.g. via email, SMS or WhatApp. On your mobile device, just click on the link to download the data into OCAD Sketch App.

– The OCAD Sketch App Data Exchange tool is now available in different languages.

– Thanks to some bug fixes, the app runs more stable.

Have you already installed the app?

Then update the app in Google Play Store or Apple App Store. All your previous projects will still be available in the official version.

Haven’t you installed the app yet?

Then get going! The OCAD Sketch App provides a great mapping experience in the field- both for new mapping and for revisions, feedback from course planners or map reviewers.

What’s next after the installation of the app?

To work with the app, you must first load a map project onto the app. You can do so in several ways:

– Learn how to transfer a project from OCAD Desktop to the app in our OCAD Wiki or in this video. Please install the latest OCAD Update first. Request a free OCAD Trial if you have no OCAD Subscription license.

– Request a link or a QR code for a project from another person, e.g. a club member.

– You can also download our Demo Project.

Still looking for a suitable tablet?

We have put together a few recommendations on our OCAD Wiki page.

The OCAD Sketch App Beta version is released!

We are very pleased to announce that the OCAD Sketch App is available as a beta release!

The OCAD Sketch App was specifically designed for ergonomic and efficient mapping in the field. It is now available for free download and use.

We are convinced that the OCAD Sketch App makes mobile field mapping easier, more accurate and more user-friendly than ever before.

Our test users were enthusiastic about the app. Now it’s your turn. Try it out yourself! You can either…

– Follow detailed instructions in our explanation video or in our OCAD Wiki.
– Start with a small demo project.

All information about the OCAD Sketch App is available at www.ocad.com/app.

OCAD runs on Windows 11

Microsoft has recently released a new update with Windows 11, which can be installed on newer computers.

We have tested OCAD on Windows 11 and have not encountered any problems or received any reports from other users.

OCAD can be used as usual on Windows 11. Only the dialogs appear in a slightly different style.

Improved transfer of OCAD Team licenses

If OCAD Team licenses are transferred frequently, it can happen that a license gets “lost”. This can happen, for example, if a user does not correctly transfer or block the Team license.

Users of Team licenses can now select the option Deactivate this license automatically when closing OCAD in the License Manager. This will automatically release the Team license when OCAD is closed. The license must then be reactivated when OCAD is started again.

OCAD at INTERGEO Digital

The next three days (13-15.10.2020), OCAD is present at INTERGEO, which is held completly digital this year.

Visit our digital booth or join us in our video room. Write an email to info@ocad.com if you need a free ticket. We would be happy to get in touch with you.

Especially for Intergeo, we have created a video presenting our company, products and services:
