Electrical Apps On Your Phone

I have been using an Android app for about a year, called Electrical Wiring Pro. It performs over 40 standard calculations like wire sizing, conduit fill and voltage drop, all for under $5. The app has become indispensable in our office, as the plans we are getting contain more mistakes, and are less complete than ever.

I checked both the Apple Store and Google play just now, and found that both stores have dozens of apps for electricians and estimators, at low prices.  Some of them have free lite versions, so you can check them out before buying.
