Pocket Reporter Pro for iPad is an app that brings the full capabilities of the iPad and iPad2 to property inspections for the first time. It's designed to make the the full inspection cycle of rental properties incredibly easy and yet gives you the scope to create highly detailed reports.
Red Nightingale are the innovative developers of the Pocket Reporter inspection systems and have been working closely with Property Managers for over 6 years. Pocket Reporter Pro is the latest instalment and has capabilities far beyond anything seen on the market.

The PhraseStorm system is the most innovative leap forward in field inspection technology since the first handheld devices came to the market over 10 years ago. It allows you to quickly describe what you're seeing with incredible detail using only a few swipes and taps of the screen. Multiple PhraseStorms are displayed at once on the iPad's generous screen speeding up entry even further.
Full property history is available at your fingertips on an item by item basis, providing you with comments from every report you've undertaken at a glance. The history of all of the photos taken is similarly available and you can choose to update a photo which helps you line up your shot and then shows the two images side by side in the final report.
Image tagging allows you to pinpoint your comments at multiple locations within the photo itself (see screenshots).
Once you're finished you can either email the report straight to the Lessors/tenants, download the PDF to your computer or you can use the new AirPrint system to print your report straight from your iPad.
Those of you who purchased iPads with the hope of a comprehensive inspection system can be excited that this potential is finally being fulfilled. Red Nightingale strongly advise the purchase of a camera adaptor for your iPad as our innovative photo placeholders and matching system make the process of attaching photos on the iPad incredibly easy. The built-in camera for the iPad2 is proving very useful however can have difficulty in low light situations.
For anyone who has been dreaming of highly detailed pre-lease and post-lease inspections on their iPhone or iPad, Pocket Reporter Pro is finally here! Try out Pocket Reporter Lite if you'd like to see the system in action but aren't willing to commit to Pro initially. You'll very quickly learn that Pocket Reporter is the best property inspection app available.
It is extremely important to note that there are legal implications in the use of Pocket Reporter for pre-lease condition reports. Some regions have legislative requirements as to the form that the printed report must take and we have addressed these where we are aware of them. You should obtain legal advice about the form of the report in your region if you are unsure and if you have concerns send them to email@example.com so that we can implement a new format for your region. Currently dedicated formats are provided for NSW (requires Quick Check Mode to be active) and QLD.
If you've used Pocket Reporter Lite for your inspections and want to start using Pro there are video tutorials on our YouTube channel which will show you how to migrate your reports into Pro, as well as show you the advanced features of Pro.
For the latest news search for Pocket Reporter in Facebook and like our page. We'd love feedback on the page and keep it up to date with all the news of our development of the new features for Pocket Reporter.
By the end of September we're hoping to release the Pocket Reporter Professional Office System which will provide the capability to centrally store all your Pro properties and reports, customise PhraseStorm and link Pocket Reporter with your trust accounting software.
