Bid Saw designed to be the fastest and easiest way for contractors to capture the information they need to make an accurate bid.
With Bid Saw, you can take photos of the job site and quickly mark them up with line items, notes and even audio recordings. Nothing is faster--not even good old fashioned paper and pencil.
Bid Saw works great for anyone who goes on site as part of the bid process including electricians, architects, plumbers, landscapers, designers and any type of construction contractor.
** Example usage by a general contractor: **
- Contractor arrives at home looking to build an addition
- Adds a note with the dog's name for when he comes back
- Takes a photo of the back yard, then draws right on the photo to show the area of the house and yard that the addition will cover
- After talking to the owner for an hour, dictates a 5 minute summary of the conversation
- Takes pictures of the utility room and interior walls, marks troublesome outlets and where new lights need to go
- Back at the office, brings up the project in Bid Saw and goes through the photos, line items, notes and audio when writing up the bid.

BalusterPro is a unique tool designed for carpenters and woodworkers, but also useful for do-it-yourselfers and homeowners.
Makes calculating spacing of handrail balusters a quick and easy task. Can be used for any job requiring equal spacing between boards or slats.
-Flat and Stair Runs
-Inch or Metric
To use, enter the run length and baluster width and then slide the 'Balusters Needed' slider until 'Spacing Between Balusters' reaches a desired value (such as meeting code requirements). The number of balusters needed is displayed above the slider.
What users are saying:
Punch in staircase and handrail dimensions, choose the configuration, and this app saves you the tedium of calculating baluster spacing. Hallelujah.
-This Old House Magazine
BalusterPro is an awesome app and can be used for a multitude of layout tasks, at your desk, on the job, in your car—wherever your phone goes, and it only costs a few bucks.

BalusterPro makes building that stairway more heavenly
carpentry carpenter construction contractor guard stair rail balcony woodworking bannister
This is two apps built into one. You get a staircase calculator and also a balluster spacing calculator.
Enter overall height of the staircase and you will get:
* Overall width of the staircase
* Number of treads
* Riser height
* Tread run
* Staircase angle
* Staircase dimensions: the rise and run of each tread.
!* Running stringer points.
Enter the width of the opening (plus a few details about your ballusters and layout) and you get:
* Balluster count
* Layout position of each balluster
Answers are in INCHES-SIXTEENTHS format (i.e. 4-7 is 4 and 7/16"). That means no converting decimals to fractions on the jobsite.
It is FREE. Try it and love it.
1. Run the app and click the STAIRCASE button.
2. Enter the overall staircase height. This is the height from the finished floor at the bottom to the finished floor at the top.
3. EITHER enter an acceptable range for the riser height OR the number of treads desired for the steps. If you specify a range, the riser height will be close to the middle of the range. If you enter the number of treads, the range values are ignored.
4. Check or uncheck the 'Start One Step Down' checkmark. Most steps start 'One Step Down' from the top.
5. Enter the thickness of your treads.
6. Enter the width of the treads.
7. Enter the desired amount of overhang for each tread.
8. Click 'Calculate'
The next screen will give you the information about your stairs. Most of the infor is self-explanatory.
If you cut steps the old-fashioned way, just use the rise and run cut values from this page to mark your stringers.
However, a far superior method of marking stringers is to use the Running Stringer Layout. Here is a quick guide:
* Starting at the end of the board, make a mark at each point in the chart.
* Put your stop clamps on your framing square at the rise/run marks.
* For each tread, find the best place to fit the square between each set of marks. In a perfect world, the square will fit perfectly between each set of marks.
* Continue up the stringer, marking each tread, until all are marked.
Using this method eliminates marking errors. Nearly perfect stairs every time.
1. Run the app and click the BALLUSTERS button.
2. Enter the overall width of the opening.
3. Enter the thinest part of the balluster. Often times, stair spindles vary in thcknness. measure along the balluster to find the thinnest part.
4. Enter the width of the balluster at the top/bottom. If (very unlikely) you have a balluster that is thicker in the middle than it is at the top/bottom, enter the thickness at the top.
5. Enter the maximum allowable spacing allowed between ballusters. Usually, this is 4 inches.
6. Check or uncheck weather you want the results to be 'On Center' or 'On Edge' layout.
7. Click 'Calculate'
The next screen will give you the information about your balluster layout.
TIP: If you are installing ballusters between several openings that are next to each other (like a deck rail), you should try to get the spacing between the ballusters in each section to match the spacing in the other sections. Here's how:
* Calculate the spacing for each section. Write them down.
* Usually there will be several sections that are either identical or very close. Settle on the most common spacing.
* Then, on the sections that do not match closely enough, adjust the 'Max Spacing' field and then recalculate that section. You may have to do this a couple of times in order to get the best spacing to match the other sections. It is OK if sections varys a bit from one another section. Minor variations are invisible to the eye.

The HVAC Check & Charge™ mobile app from Emerson Climate Technologies provides an on-site refrigerant charge calculator for air conditioning applications. Based on historic sliding cardboard charge calculators, this app allows contractors to easily calculate correct system refrigerant charge for R-22 or R-410A. Contractors can simply choose Subcooling, Superheat, or Airflow and enter the specified system temperatures along with the latent and sensible environmental loads. These values are then used to determine the proper system charge and whether the charge amount needs to be altered based on these conditions.
-Superheat Calculator (non TXV)
-Subcooling Calculator (TXV)
-For use with R-22 or R-410A
Information on this and other Emerson Climate mobile applications is available at ww.EmersonClimate.com/mobileapp.
Assists with calculating proper system refrigerant charge based on operating conditions.
