We are testing out a new type of iPad cover that has an integrated handle to make it easier for the assessor to use the on the road. If it gets a thumbs up from our testers we will look at doing a bulk order so we can roll them out to our Autointegrity customers. If you are interested in one of these covers please email firstname.lastname@example.org
The 1st iPhone app for motor assessing industry to take and send photos directly to the assessment while on the road with one push of a button. The app was updated yesterday to include a document scanning feature as well.
After field testing the iPad2 camera last week…
The camera is
1. low quality
2. only works well out doors
3. fixed focus lens
4. resolution is 0.7 MP, 960 x 720 pixels
5. Need to stand back further away from Vehicle due to focal length is zoomed in more than standard digital cameras, and this is amplified by the cropping the AutoIntegrity app does when photo is taken in portrait mode.
1. check email on road
2. put car details directly into AutoIntegrity
3. adjust and email quote and authority from AutoIntegrity
4. look up jobs in AutoIntegrity while on the road
5. take photos with the above limitations directly into AutoIntegrity
6. cost efficient compared to tablet pcs – tablet pc costs around 4000-8000NZD unless you get one on special, then there around 2000NZD
7. easy to use compared to tablet pcs – the 3g sim is built in so it always on, no virus and stuff like that to worry about. easy to reinstall/ restore ipad from itunes. Also the inbuild 3g option costs up 600NZD extra for tablet pc. Thus making the ipad2 a very cheap mobile computer which AutoIntegrity has developed heavily on because of this value.
Apple has release the new iPad2 today with a built in camera, so you can take your motor assessing photos straight form the iPad. The new iPad2 runs AutoIntegrity faster with improved speed with graphics and web browers technology.
The Australian release date will be around the 25th of March 2011.
A few websites and movies on the new iPad2
Be careful getting emails that trick you into downloading files to your computer. Unless your sure about what your downloading please do not run unknown files. An example of a clever virus email see photo above. First link is to a real UPS website. Second link was a nasty virus.
Microsoft is now providing free antivirus software. Below is a link to the free software.
