Dewalt, the manufacturer of power tools, has partnered with Delmar, part of Cengage Learning, to launch Dewalt Mobile Pro. The new mobile app contains a construction calculator for solving complex jobsite math in the field, and five basic calculations with integrated reference materials to offer help, examples and illustrations.
Available for the iPhone, iPod touch and iPad, the app is also said to provide additional high-value functionality including a running history of recent calculations, a customizable list of favorite calculations for quick and easy access to those used most often, and the ability to instantly email calculation results. Customization options also provide for trade-specific calculations and formulas, the supplier notes. Add-ons will be available at an additional cost in the areas of business and finance, conversions and math, site work, finish work, concrete and masonry; carpentry and more.
“We have partnered with Dewalt on a wide array of reference and training products, but the creation of this mobile app has evolved our relationship to a new level of creativity and innovation,” says Greg Clayton, Delmar VP. “This app will offer immediate results for hundreds of difficult construction calculations along with valuable reference content and many other convenient features. We aim to provide the highest quality product available, at a cost that will make it easily attainable for our customers–which is why Dewalt Mobile Pro will provide an abundance of free content, valued at over $30, and many additional low-priced, trade specific add-ons.”
