More features please
This is currently the best construction estimating software I have found for iPad, but would like to see more features.
For instance: roofing estimating only allows you to enter rectangular roof sections. A large percentage of roofs are triangles, parallelograms, and such. Then, the software only allows you to enter the shingle bundle price and "other material price." So you sort of have to manually figure up the price of plastic cap nails, coil roof nails, felt, starter strip, metal edging, furnace vent flashings, pipe flashings, turtle vents, chimney flashings, step flashings, and any decking replacement and just enter it as "other."
Then, what if the roof in question isn't even shingles? Tile roofs, wood shake roofs, flat rubber roofs, etc aren't even addressed at all. Wouldn't it be much nicer if you had multiple roof types that could be estimated, and one could save the prices of the different materials to a database. Then I could easily drop in the materials needed for a particular job and the prices would still be saved from the last time I entered them. This is the most basic, standard functionality for every single desktop estimating software I have ever used. We need this on iPad!
Until we get something that useful, however, this is seemingly the best construction estimating software I have found.
Our company loves this App! Easy to use and Easy to learn. In the past we spent thousands of dollars on estimator programs for our field managers laptops and that was just dumb on our part. The reason why we wasted money in the past on expensive estimator programs was that 90% of the program was not needed. It was just fluff to justified the high cost. Plus it slowed down our computer.
Now this App does 99% on what we need to estimate for only $6. Its Unbelievable! We use it for remodeling projects and for bidding on projects. Very accurate, fast, easy and it saved of a lot of money.
Comprehensive Estimating Tool
Having just got my brother in law an iPad, I didnt think I would find something this handy so quickly. (He owns his own construction company). While I am still teaching him the in's and out's of this app, it immediately made him value the ipad even more. good job, I hope the app continues to improve.
