The user interface:
It is quite easy to follow. Clear icons/buttons that mostly work but sometimes I had diffeculties with some buttons who didn't work.

What notable things do other users say about this tool? (either good or bad!)
Dj Bratsch: Thanks for the tutorial....Still tooooooo difficult to use. Charli McGhee - I am in the process of doing a kitchen and I REALLY WANT to do an IKEA kitchen. But this program is just awful. It just does not work! I've contacted IKEA and they say "we are having problems" with the kitchen planner! Ya think? - Closet planner does seem to work, however. Jim, if you have any further suggestions, please let me know.
Testing the tool (learning by doing – trial and error)
What would/could a designer use this tool for?
Basically it is made for interior design. For a designer it is good to see how you can use a space. How do objects work with each other. Or creating a non existing world with only IKEA furniture. How nice.
Depending on what kind of free this tool is, how “free” is this tool really?
It is a dirty trick from IKEA to let you pay to safe your design. First spending a lot of time on designing and then suddenly you have to pay. But still you can get a list of all the products you used. But it is not save-able.
