Inspect-a-Lot is designed to streamline the field inspection process for residential appraisers. The mobile companion app for Bradford Technologies' ClickFORMS appraisal software, Inspect-a-Lot synchronizes your office application with your field inspection data. Inspect-a-lot is not designed around appraisal forms as previous generations of appraisal mobile apps were, instead provides an efficient and organized interface that allows appraisers to complete their field inspections faster and easier.
DESIGNED FOR APPRAISAL INSPECTIONS – NOT FORM FILLING IN THE FIELD
Inspect-a-Lot allows residential appraisers to collect field data in an organized and efficient manner that is consistent with the inspection order and procedure employed by most appraisers. Rather than impeding the inspection process by limiting and constraining the data collection to filling out an appraisal form, Inspect-a-Lot concentrates on field inspection data capture which allows appraisers to complete their work faster.
PHOTOS & SKETCHING
Collect all your essential field data including photos for Subjects and Comps. Automatically import photos gathered in the field to your appraisal report. Integrated sketcher is easy to use. Interface is intuitive and efficient.

Ratings and Reviews
Good inspection, but...
I've tried to use this AP a few times and find the data portion works well once it is customized (which takes a little while to get set up). The real limit on its usefulness is the sketcher which is really lame. I just attended a webinar put on by Bradford which gave a number of good tips including using the sketcher. And while I understand it takes some time to get efficient with an AP such as this, this sketcher is really limited. For instance, there are no symbols for doors, fireplace, etc. Also, all of the lines are the same (no variable line widths or solid and dashed lines available). And then once you get the sketch into the report, you cannot modify it within the report - you have to sync it back to the Inspect-A-Lot AP. Hopefully, Bradford will continue to improve it so that it will realize it's potential but it is not yet ready for prime time, especially since she stated in the webinar that you will have to have a gold or platinum membership to use it.
The sketching needs work especially since you can’t edit once you have imported to program.
This latest update seems great, except for the fact that you can no longer "choose from existing photos" when taking the subject photos. This is especially annoying when you have a specific order in taking the photos. Please update app to allow the use of existing photos that I have already taken in the "exterior photos" Section.
Developer Response ,
The new default is to always take photos in the app. This eliminates the dialog to choose your photo source. Much faster in the field. If you want to use an image from the Gallery, in the app's preferences you'll find the option ‘Select photos from Gallery’. Set this as 'On'. Return to Inspect-a-Lot and now when selecting the camera icon, you will be prompted to ‘take a photo’ or ‘pick from the gallery’ which is how it worked in previous versions.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
