Construction Phone Apps Part 1

I’ve been working on a new venture that I’m ready to share with the world. Lots of folks (about 8,000 per month) find ConstructionKnowledge.net website helpful in solving problems. Lots more would benefit if they could get common specific questions answered more quickly…say 30 seconds. This venture makes that happen.

I’ve written 6 phone apps that can be kept in your phone (iPhone, Blackberry and Android) and will help you better do your job. I’ve mostly completed the programs and am working with a firm in India to write the code. The launch should be within a few weeks. Here’s the first Construction Phone App.

Code Help for Accessibility and ADA in Construction
Concept: Have the most common accessibility requirements at your fingertips
Details: The most commonly used requirements for accessibility issues from IBC 2006 and ANSI A117.1 2003.
Example: You are laying out sidewalk and need to know that 5% (5/8” per foot) is the maximum slope and 2% (1/4” per foot) is the maximum cross-slope unless you want your sidewalk to be considered a ramp, which then needs railings.
Price: $1.99

So what do you think? Would you consider buying this or recommending others purchase it?
