Latest features

We wanted to give you a short summary of the latest updates in case you haven’t noticed or haven’t updated your PCB Droid yet.

Many users had problems with PDF and image exports due to their large computing capacity. To take over the burden from your device we added a server-side PDF and image export option. For now free users can only use this option once per day (note that you can still use your device to export if it’s suitable), but we may increase this amount after we made sure that this won’t overburden the server.

Thank you to Sean Walton

We are very grateful for Sean Walton’s help with testing PCB Droid. His constructive criticism and keen eye for detail made the improvement of the app much quicker and easier.

As a sign of appreciation we are giving Sean a year of Premium subscription and hope […] Read more
