Late to this convo but DWF on Android would be great.. WS means I have to upload all the xref's which is not worth the effort when I have a facility with more xrefs than I care to count. With the DWF I can mark and measure w/out all the problems associated with refernce files.

Has there been any movement on getting an app for Android for DWF markups yet?

I too would love to see Design Review ported to one of these platforms. For us, WS is of very limited use as we produce many of our drawings from 3D models which aren't supported on WS. For our site engineers to produce markups they have laptops with ADR on and send redline markups of DWFs back to office for processing by our CAD department and this all works nice and smoothly but now increasingly seeing laptops phased out and tablets phased in so we stand to lose a good process if ADR is not ported. Even if WS were to become fully compatible with our 3D models, it requires the use of external upload sites and having files distributed here, there and everywhere which can be deemed a bit of a management nightmare which has made it a distinct no-go for many of our users. They enjoy the simplicity of ADR and don't feel that WS with all its extra baggage is not the way they want to go.

Hello, I am a shop foreman of a Mercedes Benz dealership in the Bay Area.  I have 2 separated shops that I oversee.  Needless to say our computers in the shop are slow, antiquated and very diseased.  Because my job is very demanding and I need answers or I have to find solutions to problem vehicles, time is everything.   The Mercedes Benz wiring diagrams require Autodesk design review to open them up and run.  I am not a CAD person at all,  I just want to be able to open up a wiring diagram off of the Mercedes server and utilize it in diagnosing failures and testing cars from an ipad or android tablet like the Samsung Galaxy or Motorola tablets.  The speed and mobility of this option is an ablolute must and the wave of the future in mine and all my technicians mind.  I am not a computer guy by any means, I am a car guy that just wants stuff to open and run on my computer quick and easy like.  preferably carrying around a tablet and doing so.  Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated, as my boss told me, "if you can make it run...I will buy it for you".  Anyway just thought I would ask.  Thanks!

Let's get some Android love!  There are more droid tablets being sold every day than ipads now, and it will keep moving in this direction as the androids get better and better.
