IAP Bushings & Tubes Reference
By penturners.org LLC
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
The IAP Bushings & Tubes app provides a searchable and sortable interface to over 1600 pen kits from most of the major kit suppliers. The app displays detailed tube and bushing specifications and drill bit requirements for every kit in the app database. These kit details can be emailed or printed via Air Print. You can create a favorites list of your most frequently used kits for faster access to those kits rather than searching through the entire app database every time you need to reference those kits. You can also reorder the database by your preferred supplier order.
The app also includes a drill bit converter for converting between inch fractional, inch decimal, metric and gauge drill sizes. Conversions to inch fractional are made to the nearest 1/64" and conversions to gauge drill size are made to the nearest gauge drill size (107-1 and A-Z). An error factor is displayed for inexact conversions to inch fractional and gauge drill size.
A 30-digit, 4-function calculator is included in the app. It has several advanced features not found in many simple calculators including a memory cell and the ability to display data in decimal or scientific notation.
Photos, Instructions and Bushing Drawings are available for some of the kits. When instructions or bushings are available, they may be viewed, mailed or printed.
The app will automatically download database updates and the kit reference files from the IAP server.
What's New in Version 1.06
This update fixes some typos and minor bugs. It is compatible with iOS10 and the following new features have been added:
1. Favorites - you can now create a list of your favorite kits from your favorite suppliers
2. Reorder Suppliers - you can now reorder the app database by whatever supplier order you prefer
3. Calculator - a 30-digit calculator is now included in the app
4. More Server Download Support - data files such as instructions, photos, etc. are no longer embedded in the app. Instead, they will be downloaded from the IAP server which significantly reduces the distribution size of the app.
Great app. A tremendous amount of work and the app is only .99 cents? I would pay $9.99.
