Now there are apps that appeal to architects and designers alike.  The New York Times recently highlighted several of iPhone and iPad apps that focus on “specific works of architecture, like Richard Neutra’s VDL Studio and Residences, Pierre Koenig’s Case Study House #22 and Frank Lloyd Wright’s Fallingwater.”

Timothy Sakamoto, founder of in-D media, recently told the New York Times “I think the ideal platform is a mobile app: it gives you intimacy, a connection.
