Try the Ikea one just to see what you do.

Google Sketchup. It's a free CAD-type program.

Bit of a learning curve, but has tutorials to help you out.

Alternatively, go on to the ole website and use their kitchen planner.

Just looked at the apps on Google and there's quite a few there. Just downloaded one called Roomstyler and it looks like you can plan kitchens with that. No idea whether it's any good but there are a few to try.

The Ikea one is good for getting the basic layout mocked up.

I found this website very helpful as it gives you a "formula" and then applies it to different layouts: dynamic space You can then add sitting/dining/storage zones to your room and routes through/sightlines to TV etc.

Consider using and architect or interior designer to advise you further. We are not just used for building work. I have had numerous meetings with clients on an hourly rate bases to help improve their internal layouts.

I agree with JKArchitect... Get someone in who makes their living from their design skills rather than by selling you stuff ...there's a thread here about finding a good kitchen planner
