Dissapointed

Got the app and none of the dimensions it figures out are correct so basically a complete waste of money and if you cut a roof off it on the ground would end up costing you a fortune as every rafter would be the wrong length and the quantities would be well more than required extremely dissapointed

Best roof cuts calculator

I agree with "Disappointed mum", although I fail to see why she is disapointed as this app. is the best thing "since sliced bread".

I believe the issues she mentioned will be addressed in the next upgrade, hopefully together with cripple rafter foot cut calculations where a lay board is used instead of a valley rafter.

This application makes the Steel Square, Stanley Quick Square and Speed Square redundant and most important, it is in metric, together with the ability to perform calculations using the roof slope in degrees.

Excellent application, that is if you have an iTouch, although it's worth buying one just for this application if you use traditional roofing techniques - you will pay for your iTouch in time saved in just one roofing job.

I look forward to the next upgrade
