Very good software, constantly improving
I use Vela Mobile on my iPad all day long at a construction site. The software is a bit slow, but it handles over 10,000 issues well with some minor lag. The interface is great, and every few weeks there are updates with new features. Very nice software, thankfully it's always improving.
Awesome for construction and collaboration
I have been using the App since it was Vela Systems and it keeps getting better and better now that they are a part of Autodesk.
NOTE: this is not just an app for one-off markups of drawings and documents (there are plenty of cheap ones for that)- it is the mobile component of the Autodesk BIM 360 Field product. It is industrial strength and intended for companies to create and manage serious programs for Quality, Safety, Commissioning and Handover using either 2D or BIM. You use the iPad app either online or offline in the field, then sync up to the web. Anyone you give access to can then get to your issues and markups on the web via the web.
It is not intended to work as a single-user application. This app gets full functionality if you are connected to a user account, which also lets you sync w the web, the cloud-based way you can send issues to other project participants, including subcontractors, the architect, owner and anybody else you want.
So, in short, if you want a strong field management platform to use the iPad in construction, this is the product for you. If you are looking for a drawing markup tool for a single user, I'd suggest checking out other apps.
Keeps you organized on the site
This app is great for keeping up to date with what's going on with my projects. When I'm walking the job I can take photos and create issues for problems I see and they automatically go to the subs to fix. Syncing with the central database is key - everybody stays on the same page and subs can know about problems to fix without me having to go tell them or waiting for the next meeting. And I can see what issues are already there so I don't enter dupes. Having drawings out on the iPad is great too - I can figure out where I am or how something is supposed to be built without going back to the trailer.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
