  • Wonderful

    by LilG33ZER

    Just like the calculator I grew up on, but now it's with me all the time!

  • Please add delete/backspace button

    by BlaineT88

    I have the original construction master calculator and it has a delete/backspace button but this app doesn't, so if you make a mistake you have to start completely over. Please add one...... Thanks. Other than that app works great. I use it on a daily basis.

  • Be careful, amounts wrong.

    by shane20715

    If you are a professional be careful, it will not give you the proper amount of concrete bags. I don't think that this thing realizes that there is .0222 yards in 1 80 lb. bag. Example: 5x5 at 4" deep is 13.9 bags, this calculator insists that it is 12.5 bags. I am glad I am not using this in the field. I would be really screwed and you don't want to be short. All of the Construction Master series has the same problem. I have them all and they are all wrong.

  • What I was looking for in 2009...

    by Architectural Designer

    Finally, it's on my iPad... On the next update, it needs rotate in Landscape view because not everybody uses their iPad in Portrait, I bought a case that is designed to hold my iPad in Landscape. I don't feel like taking the case off everyday at work to use this app, that will become a total drag. There should be another version strictly for the iPad to take advantage of the bigger screen, because pressing 2x takes away the sharpness and clearity, appears out of focus. If you could please correct this soon, don't make us purchase this twice ! you guys are charging too much for this app, this app should have been priced around $7.99 because the "off" and "On/C" keys are missing ! If those two keys were there, then it's worth at least $9.99, it's over priced, really !!! Thanks...

  • iPhone App done RIGHT

    by Banyanquest

    I have been using Calculated Industries products for many years and find this app to be great addition. I can see myself with few apps as they bring more industry specific calculators on board.

  • I've had mine for 5 minutes!

    by Hythlodae

    So far, so good. I really have liked my stand-alone Construction Master 5 for quite some time. What a great idea to make this for the iPhone / iPod touch! In-putting dimensions is much more logical than some of the foot-inch calculators out there. Buy this App - you won't be dissapointed.

  • Excellent Calculator

    by jjazz

    I've worked in the construction industry for over 20 years. I've used a Calculated Industries calculator of one kind or another for most of that time and still do. This is "THE" construction calculator. Compared to what these used to cost in the store the current discounted price is a steal. You will not be disappointed.
