Role of iPad app developers in construction industry


, ,

iPad in constructionAt present mobile technology totally changed the way of working in construction industry. Initially, smart devices give a proper communication solution to the construction industry without having Wi-Fi capabilities.Big mechanical and chemical plants along with miners and construction site supervisors are the most benefited folks.

Apart from calling and text messaging capabilities of smartphones and tablets, there are several other advantages of using tablets in construction industry. Therefore, today we will restrict up to construction industry and would explore the involvement of iOS based tablet in the life of civil engineer.

Apple iPad mini

iPad devices are available in various screen sizes and capabilities. According to me iPad mini tablet is the most suitable device for civil engineers because they can easily put together in the safety wallet or hanging bags whilte they moving some odd places in their construction sites. Civil engineers can easily take advantages of its powerful camera and screen size for drawing files and other things.

iPad app developers role

iPad devices provide various opportunities to the developers as well as civil enginers. Now, with the iPad devices iPad app developers can easily make construction project management app to the construction firms or civil engineers. With construction project management app civil engineers can manage their projects easily. These apps give an easy to manage all the construction site in your finger tips. Some years ago it is difficult to multiple construction site with in a day by moving from one to another physically, even minor problems.

Made easy to get real time updates

Civil engineers of any big companies needed to see the drawing of each construction sites in every morning and issue appropriate instructions accordingly by moving or sending a supervisor from one site to another. Some years ago there was a big gap between construction sites, civil engineers and workers. These apps fulfill the gap between all of them by providing better connectivity by providing real time updates.

How iPad app developers can solve project management problems

Now iPad app developers can solve construction management problem by developing iPad apps. There are many iPad apps available in mobile market that enable to civil enginers to view latest updated Auto CAD drawings in their viewers installed on iPad. At present most of the civil engineers 3D softwares with all technical capabilities.

Live Trade off between office and site

CAD drafters in office need to update CAD files on server and begin trade off between engineers in real time using construction project management iPad applications. With these management app office accountants has perfect ideas about the project, its type and its actual site on GPS enable maps. These apps enable to civil engineers to upload construction pics along with issues which they face during the site visit in real time. Thus, office staff will come up with instant solutions and relevant drawings without any delay. According to me big construction companies cannot invest huge amount for hiring staff and civil engineers. They can regulate their work with the help of apps in bigger screen of iPad by getting instant real time updates.

How iPad app developers can help marketing

However iPad app developers make apps which are capable to give information to the companies in the form of real time updates. Expert iPad app developers can also bring a transparency in real market too. If iPad app developers can put a button on the website that allows property owner to signup their account, they can see live updates of their property with their tracking ID. Even potential buyers can see the progress of construction of each site and establish a trust on the claims of property seller. Hence, If you can hire iPad app developers for your customized apps then you are able to give better experience to your customers. Through your app they are able to see photos of their homes and offices in real time process each morning.

Get ready to use Microsoft office in iPad devices


, , ,

????????The fist office suite was introduced by Microsoft on 1st Aug 1989 specially for desktop applications. Initially first version of office suite contained word, excel, and power point. After  some year later to see the usability of office suite the company decided to upgrade its functions such as OLE data integration, spell checker or scripting languages etc. Office is used now billions of people in the world wide.

Now in the recent time Microsoft office is integrate their services for mobile platform core application including word, power-point, excel as a part of downloadable or already installed office suite . These all the functions of Microsoft office suite comfortable for all major mobile operating system like windows, Android, Symbian, iOS etc. But office is still not comfortable for iPad devices the users of this device not enjoy all the functions of office suite.

Microsoft CEO steve ballmer give signals at Gartner event in Florida that Microsoft office for iPad is on the way. The iPad version of Microsoft is already easily available for iPhone devices, this is the first time that company has mentioned that they developed for Apple iPad devices. Ballmer’s comments also suggest that it seems that Microsoft is plotting to bring touch screen friendly office apps to its own windows 8 operating system first.

Microsoft office developers for iPad device work is in progress for the touch first user interface. If we talk about the previous version of office suite for iPhone devices then it doesn’t carry the full features to set the main office app and also doesn’t give a support to the Apple iPad devices. There are several versions available of office suite for smartphone users such as Google’s quick office and Apple iWork.

The Morgan Stanely researcher firm also said that earlier this year that the Microsoft firm has missed about billions of dollars by not releasing office for iPad devices. The firm also said that if office is launched for iPad device then it could be a several dollar opportunity to the firm.While the full version of registered office suite may easily available for mobile devices but the company CEO think that there is more upside of Microsoft office on iPad devices.

Qi li the executive vice president of Microsoft new application and services also give a hint that more touch office iPad apps are likely to coming for non office Microsoft platforms. The vice president also said that we will bring these for windows devices and also for another devices in the ways that meets customers need and value & make a economically sense for Microsoft.

The Lockbox iPad apps will continues the commitment of security and privacy that is sologon of this application delivering a secure file sharing to the customers. With the using of Lockbox iPad app services customers access a full control in data sharing.

Android tablet still won’t match to iPad app section


, ,

iPad appsThe world leading technology provider Google has convinced developers that their Android app section still needs to improve and need to look beautiful on larger tablet display. Android continuously launches many product in the field of the tablet market with every upcoming product of Android, i was hoping that the situation would have greatly improved with the upcoming of Google second generation nexus tablets.

But after some comparative research between the Apple iPad app store and Google Android app store it is clear that Android’s is still more behind the iPad and need to more improvement to look beautiful with respect to iPad apps. Here we display comparison of paid app where not optimized denotes that Android is blow up smartphone apps.

Apps iPad On Android tablet Comparable apps
Pages $9.99 no Office suite pro
Words with friends $1.99 Not optimized for 7 inch tablet
iMovie $4.99 no no
iPhoto $4.99 no Photo editor by aviary (free)
Keynode $9.99 no Office suite pro
Garage band $4.99 no no
Notability $4.99 no Lecture notes

Here  in the list we compare most popular iPad apps and most look just fine on an Android tablet but not look good on goolge 7 inches like nexus 7. This list dosen’t contain that Android is a weaker gaming platform than iOS. Games trend shows up Android or not at all, so you are missing some of games like knights of old republic,limbo, infinity blade etc.

Both Garage band and iMovie are excellent that help to justify the iPad apps as more than consumption device and noting that anyone comes closer to Android but Google should take a lead and make some killer app like these.

Now let look at free apps

iPad On the tablet? Comparable apps?
Facebook Not optimized
Pandora radio Not optimized
Words with friends free Not optimized for 7 inch tablet
CNN Not optimized
Drop box Not optimized
Twitter Not optimized
Watch ABC Some what optimized

Many of the most popular apps are not supported for Android iPad because these apps aren’t designed to take a full advantage as like iPad apps. Some apps that able to claim to be tablet friendly are just barley son on Android. Facebook Pandora radio, drop box,CNN, twitter are the worst apps that stretching out their interfaces instead of filling the screen with sidebars and menus.

The good news for Android lovers is that tablet app situation may improve soon because Google convince the developers. Google designers now going to improve the view apps apps specially for its tablet, and in the developers conference Google update with new tools for helping to developers that how their app looks in different screen size tablets. You are able to find some great apps in the Google Android market but you still count on Tim cook to flaunt Apple advantages when next time he announces his new tablet.
