Xactscope for iPad- 27.5 is way, way better!

We're a couple weeks into the new iPad app for Xactimate (Xactscope), and I'm a believer. I have been experimenting with it a couple hours each day, and am learning that is deeper than it first appears.
The Sketch feature, which I initially was "happy" with but not impressed, has me really enjoying the app. Some of the faster ways appear to be missing, but they're there. Get into it, get them for your whole team. The iPad is great for contractors for equipment and personnel tracking as well, but that's way beyond the scope of this writing.

Sketch is great, summary estimation is fantastic, and field revisions are a snap. If you have a 4000 line estimate, and need a field reinspect - just take your iPad out to the loss and revise line items as required. Download a roof Sketch from your favorite aerial service (or do it yourself in Aerial Sketch) and take that out with you on the iPad as well.

I think it's a great tool. I do not view this app as world changing (for some, it certainly will be), but I do see it a more efficient and certainly cooler way to get things done. We're all a little resistant to change, but when change is sexy it's a lot easier to embrace.

In the next couple weeks, I'll be using Xactscope exclusively in the field to get a better grip on the true functionality of the app. I'll certainly report on that as I go.

Post here to let me know what your experiences have been.
