The best construction app for iPad.

The first step to boosting your construction productivity is to get mobile hardware into the hands of your field team, and the iPad is one of the most power pieces of mobile tech you can put on your site. However, just handing out iPads isn’t enough, you need construction software to power them. Unearth is the mobile construction app for iOS that will transform your field productivity.

 

How to streamline your construction workflow with iPads.

With the right software, iPads can do everything in construction from flying drones over your jobsite to marking up as-built drawings. The key to making sure this construction technology hardware streamlines your workflows is choosing the right software. It has to actually save people in the field time and effort, because if they don’t want to use it, you won’t see any benefit from it. That’s why Unearth’s iOS construction software has a host of easy-to-use features designed to connect your field and office, and turn your iPads into the ultimate power tool.

 

Real time as-built documentation.

One of the most difficult aspects of construction is documentation. Even when everyone has a camera, you still have to collect the photos from their devices and somehow keep them organized. Other mobile construction software solves this with tagging systems.

We know that if people have to tag and organize photos themselves, they’re going to be hesitant to even bother in the first place. That’s why Unearth invented place-based organization with automatic geotagging. Just snap a photo on site, and we’ll automatically organize it by location and store it in the cloud, turning everyone on site into the perfectly organized construction photo documentation professional.

Mobile Drone Surveys On iOS.

Drone surveying is one of the most powerful technological advances construction has seen in a long time. But, if you don’t have a way to effectively use drone data, it’s not worth very much.

Using aerial surveys, Unearth turns your iPads into command and control centers for your job site. Everyone can have an interactive, top-down view of real-world build progress with a complete toolset to direct build activity, measure stockpiles, complete pay-apps, and collaborate.

Simple iPad Blueprint Viewer.

There are a number of blueprint apps for iOS, and many of them work well for sheet version control and plan markups. But, you need to be able to do more with your blueprints, you need to be able to see how they actually line up to the real world.

Unearth is the only blueprint viewer that can stitch your PDF plans into a single image and then overlay that image on top of construction drone imagery so your planned progress lines up precisely with your real-world progress. You can then store all of the geo-located data captured in Unearth either within your plans for vertical construction, or on top of your aerial surveys for horizontal construction.

The only way to ensure your team uses your software is by making sure the software you purchase actually makes their job easier. Unearth was designed by a team with decades of experience in software design and user experience, making our iPad app for construction one of the most user-friendly in the market.
