A New Apple App for a Home Construction Contractor

Build Calc App

 

Being a lead contractor means that you often have to wear many different hats when it comes to dealing with the different aspects of construction projects. A roofing company in Maryland turned me onto a new app which I found pretty amazing.  Apple developed Build Calc application which is a contractor App to help in construction which can be taken on the go. This app help contractors streamline areas that need to be addressed in almost any construction project; performing advanced calculations, cost estimating, drawing up designs, and managing forms and reports.
Build Calc was designed with one goal; to fix everything that was wrong with all other construction calculators and create one comprehensive calculator that would help streamline calculations for contractors. Build Calc has streamlined all of the advanced functions and eliminated the need to go through many steps to get the calculation that you are looking for. When using any advanced functions you can get the results of your calculation within one to two presses of buttons. A few of the advanced functions that are included in this app are: the advanced baluster function, the advanced stair function, fence function, interactive functions and much more.

Advanced Baluster Function: It completes layout of railing and staircase balusters with less guess work thus being flexible for every custom job.

Advanced Stair function: This comes in when one wants to have stair layouts for professional results like dimensioned drawings of your stringer,finished staircase, and stringer installation.

Fence Function: The app can help in estimation of rails, pickets, post or panel in a fence row length.

Interactive Functions: This update results automatically when you want to switch between regular and irregular hip roof analysis or when you want to change input values.The Stair, Baluster, Compound Miter, and Rafter functions are now fully interactive.

42Nd Parallel is the developer of this app and they take pride in continuously updating the calculator with more advanced functions.It is available in the Apple store for both the iPhone and iPad.

Review of askPETMD app

 

 

Raising a pet bird may be fun, but sometimes pet owners may find the task difficult because they cannot explain certain new behaviors in their pets or explain what may be wrong with their pets. To give pet bird parents an easy platform to ask pet professionals all their pet bird questions is the askPETMD App.  The funny story is I found this app when I was searching for a gouldian finch for sale.

 

Foremost, the app allows Pet bird owners to create personalized pet profiles with details on species, age, gender, weight, species, diet, and photo. Allowing creation of personalized pet information makes it easy for vets and the vets’ technicians to give appropriate answers or information on the pet bird. Unlike other pet care apps, the askPETMD allows users to ask a specific question on their pets rather than search for general information. This does however not imply that the app does not contain general information.

 

One of the most remarkable features of the app is that it is developed by the team behind PETMD. Notably, PETMD is a globally recognized digital resource for pet information with a vast experience in the provision of veterinary services. PETMD was started in 2008 and now has a website with over 10,000 articles on various pet information.

 

More so, the app pride on an available 24/7 for users to ask questions on their pets in the event the information they are looking for is not already available on the app. To this extent, users can ask questions on critical questions or ask common questions. The available information is extensive and covers areas such as per bird care and pet bird lifestyle. The apps’ expert team is made of vets, vet techs, pet nutritionists, pet trainers, pet behaviorists and veterinary students. Besides, the app contains comprehensive information on all bird’s species.

 

In addition to providing pet information, the app contains contacts of veterinarians that users can search by their location. Users of this service are only required to enter their Zip code, and the app displays a variety of results. Further, the app enables users to add the contact of their favorite veterinary as the emergency contact.

 

As an added advantage, the app is now available for Android devices and IOS for free. It can be downloaded from the Apple App and the Google Play store. The vet answers given are also free.

 

Finally, the app also provides professional information on the care of other pets including reptiles, fish, dog, cat, Gerbil, guinea pigs, hamsters and much more. However, the information provided should not be substituted for medical care.

Review of iRoofing App

In our day and age there is an app for everything.  I work as a Roofer in Birmingham and I found this app for roofing contractors.  So far I’m pleased with the results.  This app works to save money and time.  One of the top features is the app has social media, video and feedback links so potential customers can research you before they buy from you.

This app has the tools to display a roof’s details, design study, and can even map out and proposed plans for a new installed roof.

With the paid version of the app Birmingham Roofing Contractors like myself can use the app to find and get more leads, complete proposals, which in turns increases sales.

 This is a breakdown of what I like about this and what I don’t like, and how it has eased my workload.

What I Like

 

  • I can access building approval forms technical information, and installation guides
  • It provides accurate information about roofing suppliers if I need something to complete a project
  • If I use Google Maps in conjunctions, I can determine the roof pitch.
  • Also if using Google Maps I am able to accurately measure the roof.
  • The app allows me to show what the end project will look like to show potential customers.
  • I can provide examples of different shingles or tiles with my potential customer.
  • The app allows me to order materials while onsite.
  • Any proposals, plans, documents, and images can be printed or emailed directly from the app while onsite if need be.
  • Any material ordered through the app can be modified at any time.
  • Besides showing images of a finished project I can provide different images and angles of a customer’s new roof.
  • The app provides a list of other Birmingham roofing contractors if I need help or advice about a project.
  • Every roofing manufacturer’s full line catalog is available.

What I Don’t Like

 

  • The cost.  This isn’t a free app and it shouldn’t be, but I still don’t like paying $49 for the residential part and $89 for the commercial.
  • Being a newer app, it’s still a little glitchy.  It crashes every now and then, requiring I reset my phone or tablet.

 

The Likes greatly outweigh the dislikes, and when they perfect the running of the app that it operates smoothly, there will be very little to complain about.  So if any of my Birmingham roofing buddies out there read this – I know Gary will – get this app – it will save you a ton of time and money.

Review of the iPhone 7

iphone-7

My local branch of Best Buy in Ocala got in a new batch of iPhone 7.  I’m not one of the tech nerds that goes out and gets the newest model the second it comes out.  Before I upgraded to the iPhone 6, I was still stuck in 2009 with the iPhone 3s.  The main reason I decided to upgrade (even though I’ve had the iPhone 6 for barely a year) is the water resistant feature.  I’m an avid runner and I don’t avoid rain when I run.  Running in Florida can be a wet experience since a sudden shower can pop up at any time, and I’ve had my phones experience some very wet experiences.  They always start glitching after they got “slightly” wet.  Now I have to tape them up and basically waterproof them before I go out.  So when Apple announced they would release a new waterproof version, I decided to jump on the bandwagon.

As I said before I’m not a big tech nerd, so I didn’t even know when the new iPhone was released.  My friend who works for an Ocala Search marketing company told me it came out awhile back and to check with local retailers.  I’ve now owned it for a little more than two weeks and with research on what it can and can’t do, as well as my own experimenting, I believe I can give a valid and fair review.  I will list them in the order that I found the most important to me.

Here we go:  

First the Pros:

Water Resistant – Besides protecting me from rain showers when I run, it’s nice to have extra insurance that I won’t drop it in a toilet or puddle (though neither has ever happened).

HD Screen and Sound – It’s amazing how something that can fit in your hand has such definition and pure sound.  I come from an age where to save money I had a small, but heavy black and white tv in my room, and that was twenty years ago.  Our technology advancement has amazed me.

HD Camera – The iPhone 6 camera was impressive and so is this one.  I’m not an avid photographer, but it’s nice that I hold the power in my hand to be a professional photographer.

Quad-core A10 Fusion processor – I don’t know what exactly how this works – all I know it makes the phone run faster!

Now the Cons:

Battery Life Sucks – This thing in all its tech glory drains the battery quick.

Some old Look – I couldn’t decide if this should go on as a con.  Looking the same doesn’t make it work any less.  It’s just I’m tired of the look.  A new, fresh look would be appealing.

No Headphone Jack – I like the wireless capabilities, but if you plan to keep your phone for more than a year (after the warranty expires) everyone knows that the phone starts to glitch, and with me it’s always the headphones, so it would have been nice to have a jack if the wireless capabilities breaks.

Price – The iPhone still ranks as the most expensive smartphone.  There are other competitive models for a fraction of the price.

There you have it – my iPhone 7 review.  If you can afford it (which I used my phone plan to buy it), then if the pros outweigh the cons for you, the iPhone 7 is a great phone.  Below I included a YouTube review that helped me in my research.  Thanks!
