What am I talking about?
The app is $.99 then another $.99 to save. Here is the issue. You can save but if you open a saved quote you cannot email it. It has to be a current project in order to add photo or email.
You cannot open a quote and make any changes to it or email it. You must re enter the data. Had I known this I would not have paid the extra for the in app purchase.
Hard to beat
Works very well and easier then doing in your head or on paper.
Good for beginner
Good for ballpark material estimating, only give you bag amounts not actual materials , ie lbs of Portland cement, sand, agerate. would be handy if it allowed you to estimate ready mix truck load vs sack ready mix cost and number of loads. Definitely made my someone that does not know the trade, basically a volume calculator convert number of bags of ready mix.
