Pros: It's a one time low cost solution. I can install it on any ipad i own. It creates a nice cover page for your bid and allows you to use your company logo and another image which it dispays more prominently in the center of the cover page. Most importantly is the catalog you can create and charge by each, pairs, by the foot. Individual labor rates for each item are possible, taxable or not. Very customizable.

Cons: It is not cloud based nor does it have anyway to export the bid to another device. Pictures for items might be nice but might clutter the bid. The big thing is no way to save the file or email it. I would pay quite a bit to have this software back up on the cloud.

Overall: Gotten several good jobs using it.

Pros: Compared with other "giants" of cost estimation, it represents an option with a high "benefit-cost" ratio.

Excellent ease of use and installation in light equipment such as an ipod, for example.

Cons: Its main limitation to my way of seeing is that it is not based on the cloud or allows the export of the product made to another device, or failing that, send it via email.

That limits its range of action.

Pros: It is an easy software to use and install. Many of estimating software are not match with iPads, but you can install and use it in a very easy way. Appropriate for small-size projects.

Cons: Not recommend the software for mid or large size projects. Plus, if you want to work with a group of estimator on one file, it is not doable.

Pros: The app has additional pricelists you can buy.

Cons: Adding your own custom pricing was somewhat cumbersome.

Overall: I used it exclusively for about a year to put together bids for small construction projects. The only drawback was figuring out the categories for different aspects of estimates, and learning CCE's wording for different jobs. I think if you had a background in the industry this would be easy, but CCE is probably on the "lite" end of similar products. It's a good product, and fit what I was doing at the time. But I eventually outgrew it.

Pros: There is always a method to place a cost item where it makes sense. Grouping current, estimated and budgeted costs can all be pulled up when in the fleld

Cons: I would recommend an easier way to list public fees, ex sewer, water, hookup permits, etc.. I would also create a separate separate for when these fees should be paid.
