When we first started thinking about that idea, nothing like it existed. The iPhone 3G was brand-new, technology magazines were covered with the phrase “there’s an app for that!”, and most home inspectors we talked with spent hours every night transcribing their handwritten notes and manually importing their photos into a computer.
As a multigenerational family of home inspectors and engineers, we realized that we had a unique set of skills to turn our idea into reality. Over Thanksgiving dinner we challenged Jason to create a simple prototype, and by Christmas break we were huddled around an iPhone excited by the possibilities.
We had two clear goals as we set out to create our ideal home inspection software:
These goals still drive everything we do today.
“I’ve written software for everything from military airplanes to cell phone chipsets to video games, and I’ve learned lots of lessons along the way.
My goal today is simple: I want Tap Inspect to be an application you won’t want to live without. It is so amazing that something we have built has become such a huge part of so many people’s daily lives.”
“With nearly 20 years in the business, my home inspection schedule is as full as I want it. I actually use Tap Inspect almost every day and finish my home inspection reports at the job.
I love helping new home inspectors get started and to help veteran inspectors find a better, easier way to do their reports. Tap Inspect changed my business and I can help you change yours.”
