PAT (Portable Appliance) Testing / Test and Tag App for your iPhone or iPad.

Designed to work with SimplyPats - Data can be imported and exported too and from SimplyPats Version 7 or SimplyPats Version 7 Manual Plus Edition PAT Testing Software** (for Windows OS).

Manually log your PAT Testing Results using your iPhone or iPad, and if you own a Kewtech SMARTPAT you can control the PAT Tester via Remote mode using the App.

The Database used by KEWPAT is capable of storing large amounts of PAT Test Data between single (if in-house Testing) or multiple (if PAT Testing as a Contractor) Customers, and is designed to be compatible with the SimplyPats Manual Plus or Downloading Edition software, available seperately.

Information such as the Customer Contact details, Sites, Locations, Appliance Id's, Descriptions, Retest Periods as well as detailed Test Results can all be entered and stored. If you need to record extended information such as: Make, Model, Fuse, Serial Number, Price and Repair info and other information, you can choose to display the Extra Info screen during the Test Sequence.

Detailed Visual Test Information can also be recorded with individual checks for Socket, Plug, Switch, Flex and Body as well as OK for continued use and suitable for the environment it’s operating in. As with the Extra info, this is an optional screen that can be turned on during the Test Sequence, otherwise just an overall Visual Test status will be recorded.

Fields with the "Hold For List" option let you either type information in using the on screen keyboard, or select pre-defined entries from a list. You can add your own entries to any list which is a great way of entering frequently used Appliance Descriptions, Sites, Locations, Notes, Makes and Models etc.

Scanning of Barcodes are supported for data entry of Appliance Id or Serial Numbers. QR Codes can be read using your main camera where they have been printed out via the KEWPAT App using a compatible Bluetooth Printer (available separately).

Limits and Results for each test are pre-configured but can be overwritten or selected from a list. The Resistance Calculator can also be used to set the Limit for Earth Bond in Manual Mode.

Both Visual and Electrical Retest Periods can be set manually or calculated automatically using the Risk Assessment tool.

Support for taking photos is included.

The App can be configured in various ways depending on what PAT Testing information you need to record.

Good APP but needs some work

As a “Competent person” opposed to a qualified electrician in the eyes of PAT testing, this APP is ideal for ease of use, features, workflow and data entry.
However there are a couple of issues that need addressing. The barcode scanner frequently crashes and closes the APP forcing a restart of the app and the test and also the “custom notes” seem very random as to whether or not they actually work or not.
Overall though, this is a great app and very usable. Would be even better if the issues were addressed though.

Support Required

I’m really liking this app and I can see the benefits, but unfortunately when I’m trying to access the calendar settings and also trying to forward docs the app closes off and kicks me out every time, I’ve tried rebooting, deleting and reinstalling the app all to not avail, I can’t find anyway if contacting the developers and really hoping this issue gets sorted ASAP

Developer Response ,

It would be good to get some more detailed information from you with regards to these issues. If you send an email to, we can pick it up from there and look into it in more detail, it may be good to contact you by phone if you include your contact details.

Good idea but app needs improvement

Annoying when screen locks the app starts from home page and looses previously entered data and connection with printer. Also when you switch screens between different appd for example to send email this app seem to close itself and loose memory. Also every time you open the app it opens with one specific customer, not on for example choose customer for a new job or add customer for new job? Few changes would have made this app very good.
