    "I can see how this would be very useful in the construction field. It lets you select what kind of concrete project you are working on and then helps you calculate how much concrete you will need. I, however, don't think this app would entirely solve the need for a full construction app as there are so many more things besides concrete that go into construction."

    "The Construction Master Pro app is pretty helpful for construction. It looks like a regular calculator but it is easy to use and can do more. It also helps me keep track of my measurements and take notes. It is a little expensive but much cheaper than buying a calculator. "

    "I work in the construction industry and I was looking around google play for an app that could help me on site and become more efficient. I found the AutoCAD-DWG Viewer & Editor and it works great. It has really helped me with important decisions that need to be made on site. It is incredibly easy to view all the drawings the architect and builder put together, great to have on my Android phone."

    "Although I like Project Planning Pro, I do not think it is for professionals. You can use the app for your daily, small projects but do not expect much for your work projects. Still an interesting app to check though."

    "If you're into construction, construction manager is a must-have app for you! We all know the hassle of not knowing what exactly is going on at the construction site when we're in our comfy little offices miles away. How do we connect with our workers and ensure that proper building activities are going on? Well, construction manager app takes all the pain out of this by giving you a platform to connect with your employees at the construction site and even handles all the paperwork too. I know it's saved me lots of time and effort and I'm sure it will bring the same results to you. Not only that, it's increased efficiency and lowered overhead costs! Highly recommended."
