ArchiSnapper features released over the past 5 years
Our app ArchiSnapper helps architects, engineers and contractors save many hours with their field reports and punch lists.
We’ve been around for more than 6 years now, and we’ve always been very interested in feedback from our users while still keeping our app as simple and user friendly as possible.
All this feedback resulted in the features below .
But we’re not done yet. We still get multiple feature requests every day and in our high level roadmap you can see what we’re currently working on.
