Any woodworkers here? or construction guys?

Talk about anything that floats your boat (no pun intended). This is general talk about anything not related to boating/fishing.

From my local fishing site I just added it to my phone! If you load it up, go to HELP to see how easy it is to use. richg99

Useful app for the shop
We find more and more uses in the shop for smart phones. For example, calculating fractions no longer gives me a headache since discovering this free app: Fraction Calculator Plus from Digitalchemy. Type in fractions just like you'd write them, and it gives a fractional total, and includes the decimal equivalent! What apps are you finding useful for the shop?

Nice site. I use my phone to calculate tax on c.o.d jobs. It can do thousands of things but it's not much good for talking.

I use a couple of apps that help me in my work. Three are Bosch Converter, Unit Converter or ConvertPad. They make it easy to convert weights, measures, volumes, temps and others into the format you are looking for.

Another app I use a lot is aCar which I can get all of my information on the vehicles I work on listed for each vehicle. I can list the VIN #'s, Part #'s, general description of the vehicle and other notable items for each vehicle. It makes it easy when I am out and about and someone ask me for a VIN # for a certain vehicle I am working on. I am responsible for a fleet of trucks so it works very well.

Other apps I use are Smart Ruler, Garage Buddy Pro, Resistor Calculator and Magnifier.
