You can keep your notes in one place with the Notebook section where you can file all your relevant project information - accessible whenever you need it, while the Weather Forecaster helps you plan your build days better.

The Pocket Manual is a wealth of technical expertise; simply choose the topic you need help with and read or download the relevant section. Divided into the following seven sections, the Pocket Manual features answers to a comprehensive list of queries - Section A: Foundations, Section B: Surface Beds, Section C: Brickwork, Section D: Waterproofing, Section E: Clay Paving, Section F: Site Organisation, and Section G: Compliance. Information for designing and specifying bricks in compliance with SANS 10400 Building Regulations and SANS 204 Energy Standards is set to follow.

Whether you are a DIY, builder, decorator, hard landscaper or architect, you'll find the free, easy-to-use app extremely useful.

Peter Kidger, Corobrik's Director of Marketing, says that using the available technology to make life easier and more efficient makes sense. "We envision that the primary users of the app will be builders and paving contractors, although it should prove a useful tool, both in the office and on site, for architects, quantity surveyors and others working in the building industry," he says.

The app is compatible with iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch.
