Useful Tools in a Designer’s Arsenal

As a practicing architect, one of the difficulties I face is the pearl that is the English system of measurement that persists in the United States construction industry. It makes international projects difficult to jump to. It means you need scale measuring tools that have lots of weird markings on it, and are useless abroad. And it makes adding on a calculator impossible. Lucky for us inchcalc comes to the rescue.

It’s a special feet-inches-and 1/16th inch calculator application that transforms your iphone from generic phone supercomputer into the most awesome construction device ever. This is the must-have application for architects and cost estimators alike.
