Iphone and Ipad Apps for Building Codes

Is anyone aware of Apps, iBooks or other products that work with the Iphone and the Ipad?

Are any of the ICC, NFPA, ANSI or ASTM codes and Standards available as Apps or otherwise to use with Iphone and Ipad?

Thanks in advance.

The problem with the Smart Phones is the small screen size among other limitations. Any building code or architecture Apps will be hard to use efficiently with any Smart Phone.

Tablets, i.e. Ipad, etc., will be ideal since they provide more real estate to work with for the text and graphics.

I'm sure ICC, NFPA and others will be offering downloadable Apps for the Ipad and other devices soon. They can not afford to miss on this market where these devices become more prevalent in the work place, and in many cases, eliminate or compliment use of the printed products.
Yes - ICC has a Smart Phone App:

or

http://www.ecodes.biz/ecodes_s...ces/Phone/phone.html


both are the same page and it will give you instructions on how to download the app to your given device.

Thanks DLA....

It's not just the field that would be using. Architects, Engineers, Plan Examiners and the like, in offices, can use the data-codes as iBooks and similar products, to reduce carrying the code book(s) to meetings or to perform quick code research on the fly by switching between the books available on their device.
or when traveling to meetings. having to fly around with code books (just in case there is that one question) is a pain.

the icc app has limited function. but they also sell the code in pdf format, but it does have some licensing software. has anyone used the icc pdf's on the ipad/iphone/ipod yet? i'd like to know before i purchase the cd. thanks.
