US AppStore Staff Favorite

Apple staff favorite in many countries!
Top in Productivity category!

Absolutely outstanding ★★★★★(by Robert E.)
I use your app for my estimating and fabrication jobs. This is a great program, I cannot begin to tell you how useful this is for my line of work. A lot of people take pictures to reference to. But this program let's you add the dimensions in the pictures. It would be great if you were able to add notes as well. This program changes my iPod touch from a toy to a very useful tool

Love this app ★★★★★ (by chimbleysweep)
My wife and I recently bought a house, and I can't tell you just how useful this app is.

Perfect :) ★★★★★ (by lengbrecht)
I'm a contractor, and can't tell you how many times I needed this app… Thanks so much, well worth the price.

A must have tool for all real estate agents, engineers, carpenters, architects, auction sellers, construction workers…

All you have to do is take a photo of an object you wish to store dimensions of. Then you add dimensions: arrows, angels and text. Now your measures are stored and you can see and share them anytime anywhere.

✓ store dimensions on a photo
✓ add arrows, angles and text
✓ organize photos/files in folders
✓ easy multiple folder and file sharing
✓ fractions are supported in "inch" unit
✓ export photo with dimension to photo library
✓ send photo with dimensions via email
✓ supported portrait and landscape orientation
✓ backup, restore or migrate entire library
✓ metric and imperial units: meters, centimeters, millimeters, inches, feet and yards and fractions!

**Tip: To use fractions in your dimension you have to choose inch unit. Example one: 2 1/4" Press number two then press decimal separator (dot), press number one and press fraction separator / (slash – same button where dot was) and then press number four. If you don't need leading inches just begin with zero instead of number two.

Wildland Toolkit – Peakview Software LLC

Posted on Thursday, April 5, 2012 in Productivity

Wildland Toolkit

Peakview Software LLC

Genre: Productivity

Price: $5.99

Release Date: June 07, 2009

Wildland Toolkit is a calculator and reference guide for wildland firefighters. With it, you can predict fire behavior much like a weather prediction. Just enter the fuel, weather, and topography information and Wildland Toolkit will generate:

–RH and Dewpoint
–Fine Dead Fuel Moisture
–Probability of Ignition
–Rate of Spread
–Scorch height
–Direction of Max Spread
–Effective Windspeed

All 54 of the new fuel models are supported, with a guide to select the proper fuel model, complete with sample photos.

NOTE: There are no known calculation errors in this version. We will immediately fix any problems reported to us directly.

Wildland Toolkit is not a tutorial on wildland fire behavior, so if the terms above do not make any sense, then this application will not teach you. It is assumed that you know the same background information that is presented in an S290 or S390 class. The calculations done in the Wildland Toolkit are similar to what is done with the BEHAVE software, but you will find the user interface much easier to use.

In addition, numerous safety checklists and reference guides are included, such as watchouts, fire orders, safety zones, structure defense, etc. Photos and diagrams are provided for cloud types, hand signals, common wildland tools, and ICS org charts. An interactive practice quiz is included for NIMS IS-700 and S290.

Now a universal app, so one purchase gets you iphone, ipod touch, and iPad support.
