“Deed Calls Pro” for iPAD contains all the deed plot functions in Deed Calls - Area - Perimeter plus many enhancements. This app will let you enter angles and distances in the specified coordinate system then draw the boundary plot with segment and bearing (or azimuth) labels. You can relocate the deed plot by specifying a different starting point. You can enter an orientation angle to align the deed plot with the background map. The Summary screen will display the completed figure as well as the closure error, the area and the perimeter. If you are unsure about the last line segment, you may choose the Auto-close option and have the figure closed automatically. Or, you may choose to have the deed plot adjusted by using the Compass Rule or the Transit Rule.
Deed Calls Pro can turn a set of deed calls into a Line or Area Feature on the job map. You may have multiple Features created on the same job map. You can place these Features on the same Layer or on separate Layers.
To showcase your property, you may attach one or more photos to the Features.
For an existing Line or Area Feature on the job map, the app can create a set of deed calls that can be saved into a text file.
Deed Calls Pro will let you import shapes from Shapefiles and DXF files. It will also let you digitize Point, Line and Area Features. No matter which method was used for creating an Area Feature, the Area Feature may be subdivided into smaller areas. The app also provides a function to combine adjacent areas into a larger area.
You can obtain a PDF report containing all the Features on the job map, or a PDF report containing a deed plot and the associated deed calls. If you have loaded a background map or basemap created via the optional PC-GIS, that background map can also be output to the PDF file along with the deed plot. You may send the PDF file and the Deed Calls File (*.dcf) via email. This app also supports DXF export and cloud storage. A detailed help file is provided.
If your device has GPS capability, you may pick the GPS location as the point of beginning. Please note: Location data depends on the GPS receiver used. Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life. The Deed Calls app will let you easily toggle the built-in GPS on or off.

Ratings and Reviews
I purchased Deed Calls Pro in order to enter GPS latitude and longitude coordinates on the map and join the points with lines to mark property boundaries. I then use the GPS function of the app when out in then field to approximate the location to post signs.
It's really neat for this activity as you can highlight the area you have called out and really zoom in to see how close you are to the boundary you identified.
The interface is not that intuitive at first I don't think, and it favors function over form in my opinion, but once you start using it and making your points and adding the lines it is pretty slick. It does a lot more but that's how I use the app.
The support for the app is really great. I had trouble understanding how to get started with the app at first. Their support responded to my email questions quickly and gave me some really detailed but easy to understand steps to accomplish what I was trying to do.
Pretty slick for what I want to do with the app.
Clunky to use. Poor menu structure. No updates for too long. Company seems to be pursuing high end vertical market products without improving iOS products. Don't bother with this software.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
