The Ci App

Happy Anniversary!

Construction Instruction App is Eight Years Old

We’ve come a long way since the first iPhone; do you even remember what that looked like?
Finding apps isn’t difficult. Finding educational based apps in the construction industry for building professionals is only a bit more challenging. Finding free educational apps is also possible. Finding free education apps worth downloading that don’t pop up banner ads and request monthly subscription charges after two minutes is a different story entirely.

We are here to announce that we have duplicated all the features on the iPhone in a brand-new Android app. Android users: Check your phone for the update, and spread the word.  iOS users, if you don’t already have the app, download it here.

Jobsite AppDid you know that the Ci app has a growing library of over 1,500 instructional videos, animations articles including specific manufacturer information and Ci’s non-branded, best practice information right at your fingertips? The app can be used anywhere your mobile device or tablet is; on the go, at work, home or even the jobsite.

Watch Animation: Window Drip Cap Installation

Our installation animations are the best around and demonstrate how an assembly goes together in an easy to follow format. Written directions can be difficult to understand, that’s why we created installation instructions that were realistic, accurate with no language barriers and created from the installer perspective.
