Anyone using this site on smartphones and tablets? Is there an App? What are some tips and tricks you found with using this site on mobile devices?

This has been a useful site for me, but I am currently only comfortable using this on a laptop/desktop. Trying to find easier ways to start using on mobile devices as well, particularly Android.

I did not notice any app but mostly I use the website on my ipad through Safari and it works perfectly. Give it a try.
There's no Apps yet for I guess that will be great idea for to develop an App for mobile device.
No Apps till now.
Could be interesting.
But the site is tablet friendly, work well on my iPad.
Look mobile friendly too.
It works on Tab but a mobile app should be there.
I access the site either from my PC or my Surface. I'm not sure I see a real benefit for a phone app. I think a mobile-friendly web version would make more sense.
Hi..its good to have pm app. Not only that, if do have mobile apps, maybe easier for updating blog and etc.
I tend to agree with Stephane's point if view.
I have just copied and pasted several apps available in construction. maybe applicable to construction projects only. A lot of effort has been placed in developing construction apps. am not sure with other sectors.

The following list is for those professionals. Here are 15 of the best construction apps for 2015:

1. Viewpoint For Mobile

Viewpoint Construction Software, of Portland, Ore., recently released its Viewpoint For Mobile, formally Mobile Field Manager. The Grid Time Entry lets users track time and productivity in a grid, which has the feel of a spreadsheet. Also, users can take and organize job-site progress photos that are tagged automatically with a date, location and job code.

The app is available on the Google Play store and iTunes.

2. Construction Manager

A half million construction professionals can’t be wrong. That’s the estimated number of people using the app, which allows the transfer of maintenance logs, daily reports, project estimates and time sheets between company headquarters and construction sites. It also gives salespeople and estimators the ability to create on-site estimates for construction and repair projects.

The app is available on the Play store.

3. Fieldwire

Fieldwire is a planning app that makes it easy for foremen, project managers and superintendents to collaborate while they are in the field. The organizational app lets crews look at the latest set of plans and share critical information such as photos and punch lists.

The app is available for Apple phones and tablets.

4. iSafe Inspections

iSafe is designed to help construction teams save money while managing their safety inspection programs. Users can automate any type of inspection, including safety audits, work orders, property assessments, asset management, service management and custom forms.

The app is available on Android and iTunes.

5. Safety Meeting App

The Safety Meeting App covers 34 trade types and can be accessed from phones, tablets or computers. It meets the Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s required meeting laws and stores records electronically.

The app is available for Apple and Android phones.

6. Corecon Mobile

Estimators and project managers will appreciate Corecon’s technology that lets users share punch lists, project dynamics, administration and daily logs.

The app is available for Android and Apple.

7. PlanGrid

PlanGrid makes the list for the third straight year. It’s still one of the best iPhone and iPad apps, letting contractors and architects collaborate on all their project plans, specs and photos. Users can upload PDF drawings to, and they automatically sync to all devices in real time.

The app is available on Google Play and iTunes.

8. iHandy Carpenter

iHandy gives carpenters five tools in one app, from measuring to leveling.

The app is available on iTunes and Google Play.

9. BuildCalc

An advanced construction calculator, BuildCalc makes the list again for its ease and power. It’s consistently voted one of the best for iPhone and Android and is constantly updated to work with the latest phone-operating systems.

The app is available on iTunes and Android.

10. Construction Master Pro

CM Pro can help users do almost everything, from laying out stairs to figuring out how much drywall to use. CM Pro performs many of the same calculations as BuildCalc.

The app is available at the Microsoft store, as well as Google Play and iTunes.

JobTrac-Tour-House-Ad11. BIMx

BIMx won a product-of-the-year award in 2012 and continues to impress. It’s useful as a free, interactive 3-D communication and presentation tool for architectural designs.

The app is available on Google Play and Apple devices.

12. Architect’s Formulator

The Apple app makes the list again and features more than 400 formulas for electrical, carpentry and plumbing calculations. It has formulas such as those for soil filling and correctly placing bricks, swimming pools, sidewalks and parking areas.

13. AutoCAD 360

AutoCAD is a drawing and drafting app that lets users view, edit and share drawings from mobile devices, desktops and the Internet.

The app is available on Android, Windows and iTunes.

14. Buildanauts

For those who like to combine work and play, TouchTilt Games is developing its Buildanauts, which is in beta testing and will be available soon, according to the company. With Buildanauts, the user is the foreman, the city planner and the mayor of a town. Users plan the town and then bring it to life with the help of a construction crew.

15. Sim City BuildIt

EA’s Sim City BuildIt was released in December and is available for Andriod users. Much like Buildanauts, the user is the mayor of a town. Users can solve real-city challenges such as traffic, fires and pollution after building the city from the ground up.
Hi everyone and thanks for all of the comments!

We are currently working on some major site wide improvements (not an app)and creating a mobile responsive and overall better user experience is definitely part of our efforts No promises on ETA, yet - but we are working on it!
