Linking wirelessly to the hour meter in Cub Cadet mowers, Cub Connect tracks scheduled maintenance tasks, and also provides step-by-step instructions (sometimes with videos) and parts lists for the tasks, helps with online ordering, finding dealers and scheduling appointments. For iOS and Android phones, the app will log completed tasks so the monitoring period can start over.

Latista for Construction Management, a free tool for iPads and iPhones, lets you view and alter project drawings in the field, track progress by area or by equipment, visually record progress, organize photos, generate work orders, fill out inspection forms, identify and monitor issues, and create reports for subcontractors and customers.
