The general idea of this platform is good. As an engineer, I find its ability to quickly load, pan, zoom, and change pages in the project specific PDFs excellent. It is much faster than any other PDF software I've used on my phone. Its ability to tag a location on a drawing and make a specific note and attach one or more pictures regarding the note is a great feature. The service - desktop, web, and mobile apps - is great for collaboration. || So why only 2 stars after reading that? Simple -- it assumes you have unlimited data. Not everyone has unlimited mobile data (including me). There is no way in the app to prevent it from uploading data and pictures over mobile data. I take a lot of pictures when I visit a job site. During my last use of the app, it uploaded over 700 MB of data even when I took steps to prevent it from happening. || I used their online chat support the day before I used the app in the field. Their support tech told me I needed to disable mobile data for my entire phone while using the app, which of course, cripples the phone. Then, I had to make sure that the OS setting for using mobile data in the background for this particular app was turned off. It is. While on site, I turned off mobile data on my phone. At the end of my visit, I noticed that there were over 600 items waiting to upload. So it seemed to work. I then closed the app before turning mobile data back on so I could check my messages and use the map for traffic conditions. When I got home, I found out the app decided to upload all of those files while I was driving. There was no need to upload them as I have WiFi at home and in the office. I wasn't going to do anything with that information till I got to one of those places. || I contacted tech support again and expressed my frustration with this issue. I happened to chat with the same person as the previous session. He seems to think the issue is with Android not the app. I pointed out that many, many other apps have options to enable/disable uploading/downloading data over mobile data or only when connected to WiFi. I presented several examples including OneDrive, Google Photos, and a podcast app. There are many other examples as well as subscription services like Spotify that allow you to download music for listening when not on WiFi. I was told my feedback will be forwarded to the Product Team to see if they could implement my suggestion. || Until this issue is corrected, I will no longer use the app while in the field. This is too bad since it really does save time when writing reports. Please correct this oversight and I will gladly revise this review.

Terrible app. I used it for about 2 weeks. It worked well. I collaborated with a team of people. But then data vanished. About 10 hours of work vanished. Where did the data go? Don't use this app. Huge downer. It works well at first. But then suddenly it will let you down. No errors. Still looks successful on your phone. Untill you check with on a computer and see that the app it terrible. My phone had WiFi and 5g the entire time. Still have sync issues. The Android version is full of bugs.

Every time someone on my project takes a picture within the app, PlanGrid syncs it to my phone's Gallery. I've denied permissions, but it still happens. I chatted with support for over 30 minutes and got nowhere. They said they'd look into it and get back to me later that day. It's been over two weeks, so I'm becoming doubtful that will ever happen. Every day, I have to delete 100+ individual photo albums from my phone. It's such a headache and the developers are useless and lazy.
