[prMac.com] Mount Pleasant, South Carolina - Home Revivals today is pleased to announce the release of iScape 2.5.2, an important update to its popular virtual landscaping design app for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. iScape's powerful technology supplies the design tools users need to easily create and share virtual renderings of their outdoor spaces. While great artists can visualize how a design will look without ever putting paint on the canvas, most people can use all the help they can get, and that's where the iScape app comes in handy.
Creating the perfect landscaping design is easy. Simply use the iPhone or iPad camera to take a new photo, or load a photo from the photo library. Then, use the Texture Tool to add or replace ground cover; including grass, mulch, pavers, stones, and more. Easily add flowers, trees, walkways, patios, water features and more from the iScape database of landscaping features. iScape uses actual images from their vast library to realistically create and display landscape designs. Other app features include the ability to delete, flip, duplicate, and arrange layers, as well as to save and print the design, or share it via popular the popular Facebook social network, or via email.
"When taking instructions from a client, landscaping and home repair professionals can sometimes find properly understanding what the client really wants to be quite challenging," says Patrick Pozzuto, who created iScape. "Following a client's verbal description could sometimes be quite challenging, and it was just as hard for me to explain to them the outcome I envisioned. That's where iScape comes in. Using it, the client and the contractor can work together to create exactly the landscape the customer has in mind."

The iScape app was developed to allow anyone to design, experiment, modify, and easily share their design vision. The best part is, users can do it on the fly. Using an iPhone or iPad, anyone can simply snap a picture of the area, and start bringing the vision to life in real time. This helps avoid miscommunication, saving time, stress, and most importantly, saving money!
"Once, I was on a job where my client asked me to perform a small task of moving a few palm trees. Some small task! I must have replanted those palm trees 10 times before she was satisfied," continues Patrick. "iScape could have saved my lower back, my client's bank account, and it could have prevented those poor palms from developing post-traumatic stress! The iScape app was developed to allow anyone to design, experiment, modify, and easily relay their landscaping design vision."
iScape is not just for professional landscapers. Do-it-yourselfers will appreciate iScape's features that allow them to put their mental design vision down into a visual format, helping them calculate exactly what they need to buy and where to plant it. If they later decide to hire a professional landscaper, they will have actual images handy to help them explain their vision.
