Suggested November 2023 Early Ipad Air 2 Reviews Praise Display, Performance

Right after its iPad event on Thursday, Apple gave a select group of journalists early access to its two new tablets— the iPad Air 2 and the iPad mini 3—for early review. Tonight, a number of those reviews hit the web, offering up initial feedback on the two devices.

Reviews for the new iPad mini seem pretty dull, given how similar it is to its predecessor, but reviewers had some interesting things to say about the iPad Air 2. So, as usual, we’ve rounded up some excerpts from Air 2 reviews to give you an idea of the consensus.

Nilay Patel for The Verge:

Pick up an iPad Air 2 and you’ll immediately understand why Apple pursues that thinness with such single-minded zeal. It’s so, so thin: 18 percent thinner than the older Air, and even slightly lighter […]

That thinness is primarily achieved from a new optically-bonded display that virtually eliminates the air gap between the LCD and the top glass, making it seem like you’re touching the pixels directly. Apple’s making a big deal out of this, but it’s actually fairly late in bringing the technology to the iPad — every iPhone since the iPhone 4 has had a bonded display, the iMac has had one for a while now, and several competing high-end tablets have one as well. All for good reason: bonded displays look terrific. The Air 2 has a vibrant, sharp display that looks almost painted on.

John Gruber, Daring Fireball:

Let’s talk performance. The iPhones 6 still have just 1 GB of RAM. The iPad Air 2 has 2 GB. The iPhone’s A8 SoC has 2 billion transistors and two cores. The iPad Air 2’s A8X SoC has 3 billion transistors. According to Geekbench 3, Apple achieved this by going from two CPU cores to three. […]

The Air 2 is noticeably faster than the iPhones 6 in single-core performance, but it’s simply in an altogether different ballpark in multi-core. I couldn’t get an answer from anyone at Apple regarding whether Geekbench is correct that it’s a three-core CPU,1 but the multi-core results certainly bear that out. It is remarkable not only that the new iPad Air 2 is faster than the iPhones 6, but also that it’s faster than a three-year-old MacBook Air, and within shooting distance of a two-year-old MacBook Air.

Joanna Stern, The Wall Street Journal:

Darrell Etherington, TechCrunch:

My review iPad Air 2 has done extremely well as a photography assistant, with Photoshop and Lightroom Mobile handling plenty of heavy lifting. iMovie, likewise, provides a great experience thanks to the beefed up internals on the tablet. But what’s most exciting are the experiences that have yet to be launched, including the mobile version of Pixelmator, which was demoed on stage at the iPad launch event. We’ve yet to see just how much additional processing power developers can wring out of the A8X, but even the first early attempts have shown a lot of promise.

Scott Stein for CNET:

A new A8X processor promises extra graphics muscle versus the A8 on the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus. And there’s a little more, too: for the first time, the iPad’s finally gotten a RAM boost: 2GB based on what GeekBench 3’s diagnostics reveal, up from 1GB.

The iPad Air 2, on pure benchmarks, screams past as the faster iOS device ever, as you’d expect. I ran 3DMark, a popular graphics benchmarking app, and its Ice Storm Unlimited test ran at an average overall score of 21,744, a good step above the latest iPhone 6 and 6 Plus and a big bump over last year’s iPad Air. Some Android tablets like the Nvidia Shield Tablet have showed better 3DMark performance, but this is the best iOS graphics performance by a good large margin.

Chris Davies, SlashGear:

On the iPad Air, the LCD, cover glass, and the touch sensor are all separate. The iPad Air 2 fuses them into one, doing away with the gaps in-between. That means a big reduction in internal reflectance – where light bounces between the reflective surfaces of each layer – and the result is a step up in clarity. It’s subtle: you don’t necessarily clock that there’s been an improvement in color quality, or contrast range, but simply that the screen seems clearer and more lively. At times, it almost feels like graphics are popping out, or floating just above the surface of the cover glass.

And here are a few video reviews:

So there you have it. It seems most reviewers feel that while the iPad Air 2 is a solid evolutionary update, it doesn’t offer enough for original iPad Air owners to upgrade. Many of them also found themselves wishing Apple would do more with its additional power.

Ipad 2 Vs Ipad 1

iPad 2 vs iPad 1 [Original]

What’s changed between a few hours ago and now? If you were to have purchase an iPad yesterday, would you be crying today? Short answer – yes. Long answer – lets look at the specs on both machines. While it may appear from about 20 feet away that these devices look basically the same, there’s quite a few lovely additions to the iPad 2 that bring it right in line for competing with what Apple has called the “Year of the copycats” – referring directly to Android and Blackberry devices on the horizon (and in the streets, if you consider Motorola XOOM, the first Android 3.0 Honeycomb OS optimized tablet.) But what’s the real question here for those dedicated fans of Apple? What will I get when I trade in my old iPad for the iPad 2?

First of all, there are a bunch of things that essentially haven’t changed at all between iPad and iPad 2. The display is exactly the same as before, as is the resolution: 9.7-inch LED-backlit IPS LCD with 1024 x 768 pixel resolution. The next thing that’s exactly the same is the storage options, 16, 32, and 64GB being your options. Your Wifi will still be 802.11 a/b/g/n, your Bluetooth will still be 2.1 + EDR, accelerometer stays the same at 3-axis, and you’ll be able to get your iPad in black. But from there on out, things start improving in sweet ways.

In the iPad 2 you get a gyroscope where iPad 1 did not include one, the thickness of the entire unit has been reduced 33% from 13.4mm down to 8.8mm, and you get not one, but two new cameras. Not much is known about the capabilities of these cameras quite yet, but the front camera being a VGA webcam and the back being capable of recording video at 720p is definitely a step up from having no cameras at all. Your cellular radio has been added to, where before you only had EDGE plus triband HSPA, you now have EDGE plus triband HSPA OR CDMA / EV-DO Rev. A.

We ran a Spider benchmark on both devices and came up with the following:

iPad 1 rang in at 8492

iPad 2 with 2023

Lower is better. In fact it’s so good, we wrote a whole [post] about it.

Sound sweet? That’s only the specs. New items have been added to iOS 4.3 that’ll make your experience on this new tablet a completely re-vamped one, and Apple has taken it upon themselves to introduce a new cover system that works with magnets and automatically turns off and on the device when its screen is blocked. Oh and there’s HDMA out for HD video display. This HDMA capability works with whatever’s on your screen, out of the box, and the connector only costs $39.

Also the cost for iPad 2 is the same as iPad 1. Better product for the same amount of money.

And you can take that to the bank.

An Ipad User Reviews The Nexus 7

A review for an Android device is probably the last thing you’d expect to read on iDB. For those of you who are paying attention though, you probably noticed Jeff’s review of the device a couple weeks ago, and now that I’ve been using the Nexus 7 for a about two weeks myself, I’d like to share my thoughts with you.

Of course iDB is an Apple-focused blog. Of course we are biased towards the iPad and just about everything iOS, but when a device like the Nexus 7 comes out, we feel that we owe it to ourselves and to our readers to have a look at it. After all, it’s good to have a point of comparison, especially if we are going to look down on Android as we often do here.

Now that we have the housekeeping stuff out of the way, let’s dig into this brief and honest review of the Nexus 7. Does it live up to the hype? Is Android better than iOS? Can the Nexus 7 replace my iPad? A few questions and more that will be answered in the next paragraphs…

Admittedly, I had never used an Android device for more than a few minutes so I was very excited about finally getting my hands on one. I was also pretty excited to try something new because I’ve been using iOS devices for the last 5 years, and to be honest, it does feel boring at times because it’s always the same – iOS UI hasn’t changed one bit since it launched in 2007.

The Form Factor

Maybe even more importantly, I was excited at the prospect of finally getting rid of my new iPad. Don’t get me wrong. I love the iPad. It’s a great device and all, but for what I do, it is too much. In my review of the new iPad, I noted my main grip against Apple’s latest tablet: its size and weight. It’s 6.5% thicker and 8% heavier than the iPad 2, and to me, this is a huge deal. Kind of a deal breaker.

Now to be completely fair, I have to disclose what I do on my iPad. Emailing, light web browsing, tweeting, and news reading is basically all I do on my iPad. I sometimes edit pictures. I rarely, if ever, use it to create content, I don’t watch videos, and I don’t play games. If I need to get some work done, I either get at my desk or I use my MacBook Air. More often than not, my iPad is sitting on the coffee table, untouched for days while I’m using my iPhone to do everything I wish I could do on something bigger than an iPhone, yet smaller than an iPad. The Nexus 7 was what I had been waiting for for months now.

Just like I expected, the Nexus 7 feels great in my hand. It’s not too small, not too big. It’s actually the perfect size for what I do. You can hold it in one hand for a long period of time without feeling like you’re going to develop a bad case of carpal tunnel syndrome.

Sporting a back panel made of plastic, it just fits well in your hand, and is much less likely to slip out of your hand than the iPad. As noted by Jeff in his review, I also love the back made of plastic because it is much less prone to get scratched than the iPad.

To be clear and straight to the point here, this 7-inch device’s main strength is its size! If it wasn’t for it, I doubt I would have even bought it in the first place, but I really needed to find a replacement for my big fat iPad 3.

This being said, size matters, but only to a certain extent. As Steve Jobs put it, “if the hardware is the brain and the sinew of our products, the software is their soul”. I will spare you the technicalities of the specs of the device because I don’t care about that kind of information. With Apple products, I’m used to using devices that just work and I was expecting the same from the Nexus 7’s Android.

Android is Awesome!

My Nexus 7 is sporting Android 4.1, also known as Jelly Bean, which to my knowledge is the latest Android version currently available to the public. The initial setup was a breeze. All I had to do was basically enter my Google Account password and there I was on my way to use the tablet. I don’t think Google could have made this part more straightforward.

Pushing the right buttons

Keyboard and autocorrect

Something else I love about Android is the keyboard, and more specifically its autocorrect feature. As an iOS user yourself, I don’t have to explain to you how painful autocorrect can be on iOS. It just doesn’t work. Android handles autocorrect suggestions in a much better way by giving you three different options to choose from. More often than not I didn’t even have to touch anything because Android was that good at figuring out what I was trying to say. Coming from the terrible iOS autocorrect, this felt like night and day. Definitely a good point for Android.


Speaking of good points for Android, let’s talk about Widgets. I know there is a lot of hatred towards widgets on iOS. Everyone but a few jailbreak users seem to think that widgets would be overkill on the beautiful and sleek iOS UI. Yes, widgets definitely feel “Windowsy” but they’re pretty darn helpful. I love having a widget for email on the Home screen of my Nexus 7. Launching the app is no more needed every time a new email comes in. I can just have a quick look at it and see what it’s about, then I can choose take action on it or not. You can use widgets for most applications. Twitter addicts will definitely like that!

Android Sucks!

I switched to Mac computers about two years ago. Before then, I was a Windows user and I loved it. That was until I got my first iMac. I never looked back, and today, you’d have to pay me big bucks to have me use a Windows PC.

Back to my Windows days

When I turned the Nexus 7 on for the first time, it reminded me of Windows. The little animations, the terrible sounds, the Home screen were all reminiscent of my old Microsoft days, and it all felt like nails on a chalkboard. This is obviously a personal preference. Some people will love it, some people won’t care, and some people, like me, will dislike it.

Besides that, the first few days of daily usage were great, but when the novelty effect wore off, I came to realize that I really don’t like Android. The way Android works or looks doesn’t appeal to me. Again, this is all based on my personal preferences.


I guess using an Android device would be great for someone who has never experienced iOS. Assuming you have an iPhone or iPad, you know how smooth everything is. A good smoothness test I like to perform is by scrolling up and down on a web page. iOS is great at this. Android is just very inconsistent. It scrolls funny. The same gesture sometimes gives you different scrolling speeds. Again, some obvious inconsistencies that make it look like a half baked product.

The Play Store

A new tablet is great, but if you don’t have apps to use on this tablet, it’s useless. Upon launching the Play Store, I was pleasantly surprised by its layout. It’s pretty and well designed. But again, when you start using it, you realize it’s not very friendly. For example, I couldn’t figure out how to sort app search results. Not a big deal, I thought, as I started looking for a few apps to perform my basic tasks (RSS reader, Twitter).

Because the search feature sucks so bad in the Play Store, I started googling “best rss reader/twitter apps for Android,” which returned several good results. So I downloaded a bunch of apps and started comparing. Oh boy was it bad.

Android apps

I’m not sure what it is with Android apps but I couldn’t find one single app that I would have deemed satisfying, both on a practical and esthetic level. From the 20 or so Android apps I downloaded and tried, none of them seemed to work well. And for those that actually kinda worked, they were too freaking ugly for me to even dare using them. The RSS reader app I downloaded and resigned myself to use for example (can’t even remember its name), was looking alright, but it would take over a minute to sync my stuff from Google Reader. I sometimes grabbed my iPhone and used Reeder instead because I just didn’t want to wait here for my news to arrive.

Try looking for a decent Twitter app for Android that works… Good luck with that. I used TweetDeck for a minute until I realized you couldn’t even delete an account from the app once you had set it up. I mean, is this acceptable? Not in my world. After bitching about it on Twitter, a few people recommended I use specific Twitter/RSS apps, but all of those were not compatible with my device, which, let me remind you, is Android’s flagship device when it comes to tablets.

Why couldn’t I find a good app? My guess is that developers don’t care at all about Android, and I can completely relate to that. If I’m a developer, I’ll probably want to focus my efforts on a platform that works well, and maybe more importantly, a platform for which I can do one or two versions of my app and have it run on all devices supported by this platform. There are so many different Android devices with various forms and shapes, that it’s nearly impossible for developers to make sure their apps work as good on every single device.

The Final Twist

Google has a fairly simple process to return a product. I submitted a return application online and a few hours later I received detailed instructions on how to proceed. At the time you are reading this, my Nexus 7 is probably in a UPS truck between San Diego and Dallas.


I could have exchanged my faulty unit for a new one, but why bother? Even though using the Nexus 7 felt very refreshing the first couple of days, it quickly turned into a drag. I could have dealt with the inconsistency and the irregularities of Android, but the crappy apps were the last nail in the coffin.

Shouldn’t have I had problems with the Nexus 7 screen, I probably would have kept it and kept using it, against my will. But this screen issue was exactly the excuse I needed to get rid of it while waiting for Apple to release a 7-inch iPad, likely for the Holidays season (I doubt the iPad mini will be released next month).

After thinking about it, I came to realize that what I loved about the Nexus 7 was just the form factor. To me, a 7-inch screen is the perfect size for casual usage. Bigger than an iPhone, yet smaller and more portable than an iPad. I realized that I had fallen in love with the size of the device and not with the device itself. What I unconsciously wanted was a 7-inch iPad, something that just works, and it was clear that the Nexus 7 and Android couldn’t fulfill that part of the job.

Apple Just Announced A New Ipad, Ipad Air, And Apple Watch Series 6

Tim Cook is announcing new products today in the Watch and iPad family. Apple

We’ll have to wait a little longer than usual for the new iPhone this year, but Apple is still throwing a Fall event to show off some new products in the iPad and Watch families. You can watch yourself here and keep reading as we pull out the highlights from the new announcements.

Tim Cook kicked things off talking about situations in which Watch has saved people’s lives by alerting them of heart abnormalities. Health is clearly a focus—the presentation begins by namechecking the new sleep and handwashing features that arrived in the latest OS update.

Apple Watch Series 6

Apple Watch Series 6 is here Apple

We’re getting a fully new Apple Watch version, which comes in a variety of new colors including a blue metal case and a Project (RED) version. There’s also a new style of black.

Series 6 now comes with a blood oxygen meter, which depends on the infrared sensor in the health sensor. It takes 15 seconds to get an oxygen reading and will take some measurements in the background during the day.

The infrared sensor inside the watch will help measure blood oxygen levels. Apple

The company is launching three new studies to go along with the new sensor, including an asthma study, another related to heart failure, and another with the Seattle Flu study to explore how blood oxygen levels can be early indicators of COVID-19 and other ailments.

The sensor inside is based on the A13 Bionic and promises a 25 percent increase in performance. The new display is now 2.5-times brighter when at rest, and there’s an always-on altimeter.

Apple is introducing several new Watch faces, some of which are designed for specific purposes. This one, for instance, is aimed at photographers.

This is the dedicated photography face for the Apple Watch. Apple

In addition to the faces, Apple has a heap of new bands. The most interesting new strap is called the Solo Loop and it doesn’t have a clasp at all. It comes in a variety of sizes and stretches over your hand. It’s reminiscent of the silicon wedding rings popular with Crossfitters. There’s a braided version as well.

The Solo Loop strap doesn’t have a buckle or closure of any kind. Apple

The new Watch Family Setup mode allows kids to get some of the features of a smartphone with just a watch. It can track their location and let parents keep an eye on where they go. It requires a cellular connection and doesn’t appear as though it will be available in the U.S. for a while.

Apple Watch SE

The Apple Watch SE has the same workout components of its pricier sibling. Apple

There’s now a cheaper version of the Watch for people who don’t need the most intense sensors. It uses Apple’s S5 chip to make it twice as fast as Series 3. The SE starts at $279, while the Series 6 starts at $399. The SE will have the same motion-sensing tech inside to make it similarly good for tracking workouts. You get fall detection on the SE as well.

Both Watches are up for order today and start shipping on Friday.

Apple built its own fitness service centered around Apple Watch. There are 10 types of workouts with trainers and songs from the Apple Music catalog. It’s called Fitness+. When you start the workout on your Watch, it automatically starts a workout video on your phone or TV screen. This is a clear shot at Peleton, iFit, and other home workout apps.

Fitness+ includes yoga, cycling, dance, treadmill, core workouts, HIIT, rowing, and cooldowns. Apple

New workouts come out every week from a variety of instructors. There’s an “absolute beginner” program built-in, which might come in handy for those of us who have been sitting completely still for the past six months or so.

Fitness+ costs $10 per month or $80 per year and launches before the end of 2023.

Apple One

Apple is now bundling all of its services, including iCloud, TV+ Fitness+, Arcade, News+ and Music together into one subscription. The Premiere subscription is $30 per month, which includes 2 TB of iCloud storage, as well as the rest of the services. It’s only available in select countries for the moment. Looks like that’s it for the services new today.

iPad 8th Gen

The iPad 8th Generation gets a serious speed update this time around. Apple

The new iPad 8th Generation has a new A12 chip inside, which makes it 40 percent faster in terms of CPU and doubles the graphics performance. It now has the Neural Engine, which typically only existed in the higher-end models.

It works with the full-sized Smart Keyboard and the new Logitech keyboards. This is a pretty standard speed bump for the bread-and-butter iPad. It still starts at $329 or $299 if you’re an education customer. Apple notes that it’s considerably faster than the most popular windows laptops and six-times more powerful than the most popular Chromebook.

iPad Air

The new iPad Air Apple

TouchID is now built right into the top button of the device. It’s the smallest authentication sensor Apple has ever made.

The new Air runs the new A14 Bionic chip inside. Apple is using 5 nanometer process technology, which makes them the first on the consumer market. There are 11.8 billion transistors on the A14 chip. It’s a 40 percent performance increase over the previous Air, which was already fast. It’s also capable of a 30 percent graphics performance increase.

Air now gets USB-C (finally), which makes it faster and more versatile. The front has a 7-megapixel FaceTime camera, while the back has the 12-megapixel camera from the iPad Pro.

It starts at $599 and begins shipping next month.

OS updates

iOS 14 and iPadOS 14 are both officially launching tomorrow after several months in beta. WatchOS 7 is also coming to the public tomorrow. Even TVOS 14 is going official, so get ready to spend some time downloading updates tomorrow.

Roundup: Macbook Pro Reviews Go In

After being announced last week and ahead of the first orders arriving to customers tomorrow, the early reviews of the new 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro models are here. These reviews provide our first in-depth looks at the new design and notch, the ProMotion display technology, the M1 Pro and M1 Max chips, and more.

Head below for the full details…

MacBook Pro reviews

The Verge has some early results from testing the M1 Max chip inside the new 16-inch MacBook Pro:

Inside you’ve got Apple’s new M1 Pro and M1 Max processors, which are much more powerful versions of the M1 chip that have much more serious GPU capabilities. We’re doing a lot of performance tests to see what’s what with these chips, but I can tell you right now that the 16-inch Pro with M1 Max clocked the fastest time ever in our Adobe Premiere 4K export test… by over a minute.

What the notch that lives in the top of the new displays? Jason Snell at SixColors writes that it takes “no time to get used to having a notch at the top of the display.” As Snell explains, this is due primarily to the Mac’s menu bar:

Gizmodo describes the return of the SD card slot, MagSafe, and HDMI port as a “game changer.”

The return of useful ports to the MacBook Pro is a game-changer if you use a lot of peripherals as part of your workflow. Both MacBook Pros have three Thunderbolt 4 (USB-C) ports, a headphone jack, an HDMI port, an SD card slot, and a MagSafe charging port, which is so, so satisfying to use. (You can also charge over USB-C.) I’d love to see a USB-A port crammed in here, too, but the included ports minimize the need for dongles and for that, I am grateful (if a little upset that I settled for only USB-C for so long).

Gizmodo also says that the new 120Hz ProMotion display is incredibly impressive:

The new Pro displays have also been upgraded with the iPad Pro’s ProMotion feature, which is so good that it’s now upsetting to use a laptop without it. ProMotion, which is turned on by default, makes it so the Pro can adjust its refresh rate between 10Hz and 120Hz, depending on what you’re doing. You can turn off ProMotion and use the Pro at a fixed refresh rate (47.95Hz, 48Hz, 50Hz, 59.94Hz, or 60Hz) if you want to, but I tried using it at 60Hz and found the difference too glaring after almost a week at 120Hz. It really is so much smoother with ProMotion turned on.

CNBC has some praise for the new speakers:

The speakers are way better than any other laptop speaker I’ve tested. They have a noticeably rich bass and can fill a room with audio. They support spatial audio, too, which is like surround sound if you’re playing movies or music encoded with Dolby Atmos. It makes a movie or music sound like it’s coming from all around instead of just from the left or right of the laptop.

Pocket-Lint on the M1 Pro processor:

This machine laughs in the face of big files and demanding apps. In testing, a 31GB cinema 4D file opens almost instantly and allows you to render effects in real-time. We couldn’t even open it on our M1-powered 13-inch model. Likewise, a 1594 track Pro Logic file opens in less than 20 seconds. 

Those wanting to edit video on the go shouldn’t have a problem either. The M1 Pro can handle up to 20 streams of 4K ProRes footage at the same time, while the M1 Max can handle 30 streams.

Engadget was impressed with the battery life:

In addition to the longer battery life, the new MacBook Pros can also charge faster than their predecessors thanks to the return of MagSafe. As TechCrunch explains:

The notion that the system doesn’t get hot is overstated — the bottom of the aluminum case gets toasty, but what is true is that you’re going to have to really push this system to get those fans to kick in. The battery life is beefy on this thing well. I was able to squeeze out 17:29 hours of Apple TV+ playback on a charge (the new Velvet Underground documentary is good. I know because I watched it A LOT). The reintroduction of MagSafe, meanwhile, brings fast charging, getting the system from zero to 50% battery in half an hour (with the 96 or 140W power adapter). The system can still be charged via one of the three USB-C ports (great for those times when you inevitably leave the proprietary plug at home), albeit not as quickly, topping out at 100W.

The MagSafe plug comes with a nice new braided cable, but otherwise looks and functions remarkably similarly to the quick detaching plug we all know and mostly love.

The Best Construction Estimating Software Reviews Of 2023


CoConstruct charges a monthly fee based on how many projects you are working on and the included features. The software is available in three service plans. Here is a breakdown of each plan:


Monthly cost: Ranges from $199 for 3-5 projects to $349 for 16-20 projects

Features: This plan includes unlimited users, project scheduling, warranty tracking, to-dos and jobsite logging, QuickBooks Desktop integration, and financial control with estimates, bids, budgets, purchase orders and invoices. This plan is available via web and mobile.


Monthly cost: Ranges from $249 for 3-5 projects to $449 for 16-20 projects


Monthly cost: Ranges from $299 for one or two projects to $599 for 16-20 projects

Features: In addition to all the features of the Core and Standard plans, the Plus plan offers a more in-depth building experience with client selection management, access to project prices such as overages and change orders, and the option of a custom-branded web and mobile app. The Plus plan also features optional client visibility and full collaboration via messages, files, and photos; you can grant your trade partners mobile access to assignments and files.

The software provides a free demo to display its features and benefits, as well as a 30-day money-back guarantee. All CoConstruct asks is that you complete three scheduled coaching calls with its dedicated implementation coach. Afterward, if you don’t see a fit for your construction business within the first 30 days, it will refund your subscription payments. The software requires no contract for cloud-based deployment, and it charges no upfront fees or recurring costs beyond your subscription payments.

CoConstruct believes in tying costs to the things that make you money, which is why its pricing is based on the number of projects you have under construction. Your number of ongoing active jobsites is all you pay for. You can adjust your number of projects under construction at any time with no change fees.

CoConstruct Pros Streamlined Bidding Mobility

With its mobile app, available on iOS and Android devices, CoConstruct provides access to your team, clients and trades from anywhere. It offers in-app clock-ins, shift scheduling, selection checking, to-do lists, and push notifications to provide real-time updates.

360-Degree View

Uploading and viewing 360-degree photos allows for faster communication. With a single tap, you can document an entire room in one photo and share the interactive photos with remote clients and team members.

CoConstruct Cons

While CoConstruct has nearly everything we looked for in construction estimation software, it lacks some of the integrations we looked for. It does integrate with QuickBooks and Xero, but some of its competitors offer additional accounting and CRM integration options. Another useful integration it’s missing is the ability to import AutoCAD for design and flooring plan data.

CoConstruct doesn’t provide a free trial either – you’ll have to pay for the first month, fully use the service and then request your money back within 30 days if you end up not liking how the software works.

Customer Support

To test the level of service CoConstruct offers, we contacted the company by phone, posing as a small business owner interested in its software. The representative we spoke to was helpful and answered all of our questions thoroughly. We discussed a variety of topics, including the support options and 30-day money-back guarantee. Overall, we were very impressed with the customer service.

CoConstruct users have abundant training and support options. You can call to speak with a support representative or send an email to an expert if you have any concerns. Live chat support is available 24/7.

The company also offers hands-on training, including proactive check-ins, and helpful videos and webinars. These options are all free of charge and available on all service plans.

CoConstruct is not an accredited member of the Better Business Bureau, but it does have an A rating on the site. As of November 2023, only been two complaints had been closed against the company in the past three years.
