Punch List Applications

  • 1.  Punch List Applications

    Posted 08-31-2018 09:48

    Does anyone know of any really good Punch list applications for iPad that allow editable files for the deliverable.  I've seen several programs that only allow you to use the app to edit and produce pdfs.   That doesn't allow you to send an editable file to a contractor for their use.

    I want something that is fairly simple.  I've also seen a lot of other apps that are so complex, that they are cumbersome.  I also wanted to know if people have used the apps that allow you to download the prints into the system and mark up the prints right on it.  I didn't know if that would be an asset or just be more cumbersome.

    Have you tried Plan Grid?  for Apple iPad - works great.  And fairly cheap.  Integrates with the contractor too.  PlanGrid Construction Software & Blueprint App

    Can you elaborate on what you mean by editable and if you are looking for a graphic tool or just text with formatting? We exchange pdf files with contractors all the time and they can add commentary with any pdf editor unless you lock it down to prevent editing. Our weapon of choice (and that of most contractors I've dealt with recently) is Bluebeam.
