uScaleit+ is a very easy to use tool that produces distance and area estimates from the aerial images generated by Apple Maps. This application produces results in a variety of different English and metric units. Area calculations can be presented in square feet, square yards, acres and square miles or square meters and square kilometers. Distance calculations can be presented in feet, yards and miles or meters and kilometers. The metric switch is available when the page curl icon is touched. The steps for using the application are as follows: enter a landmark, address or zip code for the location you are interested in, zoom and pan to a specific location, select either the distance or area calculation feature, touch the screen along a path or around an area and touch Done. The user can use a stylus for more accurate placement of points. Users can clear the screen at any time by shaking the device if a new path needs to be drawn or if a new calculation is desired.
uScaleit+ can help individuals and professionals with their distance and area estimating needs while they are on site. Walkers and bikers can estimate the length of their routes and golfers can estimate the distance for their next shot. Professionals in construction, engineering or property management will find this tool very helpful for calculating the area or frontage of a property. Roofing and paving contractors can produce estimates for roof tops and parking areas and conservationists can produce estimates for shorelines or bodies of water. The iPhone and the power of Apple Maps now gives individuals and professionals a convenient and powerful tool for estimating distances and areas in the palm of their hand – anywhere in the world.
uSketchit+ is an easy to use application that lets you work with images on your hand held device just like design professionals do. The application can load photos, screen captures or drawings saved in a .jpg format and lets you work in either portrait or landscape mode. You can zoom and pan to a specific area, overlay the image with a “butter paper” film and then use a virtual pen when you touch the screen. The pen dispenses a fat black line from just beyond your finger tip for better line placement control and if you touch the screen with your thumb, the flow of ink stops and you can use the pen as a pointer. Not satisfied with your work, shake the device to clear the screen.
uSketchit+ has a limited number of features that helps the new user get started quickly. It works like an architect, an engineer or an interior designer would if he or she had a drawing, some tracing paper and a felt tip pen. Anyone who communicates concepts with drawings can now work in the palm of their hand at a meeting or in the field, email the idea back to the office and always have an electronic copy of the sketch.
uPunchit+ is an easy to use application that lets you place numbered notes on the images that you bring to the screen of your iPhone. Preparing a “punch list” has been a task associated with the design and construction industry for many years. uPunchit+ now lets you produce a “punch list” and email it to your owner or contractor while you are on the job. The application loads photos, screen captures or a drawing saved in a .jpg or .bmp format and lets you work in either portrait or landscape mode. You zoom and pan to the area of the image you are interested in and then enter a project filename which becomes the subject of the email. The application then overlays the image with a yellow “butter paper” film that highlights the numbers that you enter by touching the screen. As you place each number, you are prompted to enter the note associated with it. When finished, click save and then either send the email with the numbered notes and image or save it to your Drafts folder for later editing.
uPunchit+ works like an architect, an engineer or an interior designer would if he or she had a drawing, some tracing paper and a red pencil. Anyone who communicates concepts with drawings and pictures can now work in the palm of their hand at a meeting or in the field, email a “punch list” for the project and always have an electronic copy for their files.
uCantMeanIt makes your iPhone images more informative. You can now add bubble notes to your images with important information.
The application loads photographs, screen captures or any document that is in a JPG format from your Photo Albums and works in portrait or landscape mode. The “Add” button lets you create as many bubble notes as you wish and the “Undo” button lets you delete them if you want to start again. After typing the text for a bubble, move it into position with your finger and set its location by touching the screen. Then touch an area of the screen again to set the point of the bubble’s tail.
uCantMeanIt supports foreign language characters so you can send images with notes to anyone in any language that the iPhone supports. The application also works like an electronic sticky notes tool. Highlight text documents or drawings with notes and point to a specific location for that note. Pictures and documents can now say much more.
