Top Paid and Free Construction Apps

Publication Date: 12/5/2011

ENR asked Apple to query its developer community in a quest to help idenfity the most popular construction apps in the App Store. It was a tricky call. Although plenty of apps are considered useful in the A/E/C realm, Apple doesn't have a specific A/E/C category as it does for business and productivity. But it's fair to say that these are among the more noted amid a rise in construction industry apps, and our list is culled from a few categories. Furthermore, the app list comes as Apple is ramping up its volume purchasing program, which the company says can make it easier for construction firms to purchase a suite of essential apps in bulk and then distribute them to staff members in the field, rather than going through the App Store. In the future, ENR will survey the best construction apps for Android platforms.
