On iTunes!


Yahoo!  BuildCalc is on iTunes.  This is a really big milestone and before I say anything else, I really want to thank my wife for her support (and understanding) these last months.  I really could not have done this without her.

The website has been updated and it’s time to celebrate with a cold one!   However, it  is also a good time to talk about what is next.  I have a list of about 30 things I could see being useful additions to BuildCalc (and who knows how many more there are that BuildCalc users know that I don’t).  The major categories are:

  • Documentation
    • A manual
    • In app help
    • Howto videos on YouTube
  • New Functionality
    • Baluster calculation
    • Trig Functions
  • Wizards
    • Make the more complicated functions easier with a graphical interface.  A good place to add some additional function as well.
  • Tables
    • Look up tables for common building materials and calculations
  • On-line forum
    • More communication from BuildCalc users – how can I learn what features / function would best make BuildCalc the tool that helps them be awesome at their job?

So if you have an opinion, I want to hear it!  Drop me a note at  .

Again, thanks for your encouragement and support!

– Ben
