You can get the free version with 95 pieces of furniture or pay to get 1205. Not really free, more like freemium.

a free version available at SourceForge.net that requires to install Java to run and comes with 95 pieces of furniture
a paid version available on the Mac App Store bundled with a private version of Java and 1205 pieces of furniture.

This program looks awesome, but it is NOT free. It costs $14.99; not a whole lot, but still misleading!


Good Program, posible browser hijack risk

I found the program to be really easy to use and the pre-made furniture and objects made putting together a floor plan really easy when planning a move to a new apartment.

After installing the program though, I found I had been hit with the Conduit Web Search hijack. I had downloaded a few other things before installing this, so I can't be entirely sure. Still, this was the only one I had installed before noticing the problem.

A few more comments or reviews would be helpful here.

This is a great and simple software, which runs flawlessly on Linux. It is just straight forward. the best thing I liked in this software is that you design everything on a 2D plan, and on the spot, the software creates a 3D image, which you can rotate, zoom in and out..etc.
It does not need any time to learn, as the controls are just in the right place.
I got to design 2 rooms in less than 30 minutes after just installing the software. Basic 3D shapes are available on source forge, and the software just points you to the library.
installing on linux is straight forward. just download, unzip, and run the .sh file.
