    Can anyone write an iPad/iPhone app that can keep track of everything? I mean crew hours, time spent on site at multiple sights, billing and photo documentation. If it could be tied into quickbooks that would be even better. I cant do it but someone might be able to.

    If anyone on here can write a app like you ask, I doubt they'd be talking it up on a snow plowing forum or pushing snow for a living for that matter, but good luck.

    Working on it.
    "NorEaster Storm Systems"

    Currently a standalone version. Gets the job done, but currently in the middle of a major rework. The web enabled backend is almost complete. Will be able to setup customers, properties, jobs, crews and invoicing. More features as time progresses. This has been a labor of love for the past 3 years. Just now starting to actually get people to really use it.

    I have Plowsite.com to thank as a huge amount of customers came from you all.

    cant wait to learn more about the full versions details, I do hope you could make the logs customizable by being able to add custom catergories, cause I think in canada we require a little different info to be collected. Also please make things like temp changable & canada friendly(ie: celcius)

    NESS or doforms app

    Dakota's app is great, or if you want something custom I would check out doforms.com

    You can create and deploy a custom form to multiple mobile devices in a few minutes.

    Have used this app. It works well saves alot of pencil time, exspecially when you are running on low sleep mode.
