Many times I have wondered when the day will come when all home inspectors will just be using their Internet browser to do their inspections and be completely device independent. No software to purchase and install but just use their browser to gather their data. I wondered about it 15 years ago and thought it was a ways in the future yet. With all these newer devices coming out each month it makes you wonder if it is closer now then before as to wanting to be device independent. I am looking for any feedback of inspectors that have actually tried the solutions out there that are based on using a web browser and what their reaction was to their ease of use…especially on any mobile type device.
My opinion is that it is a long ways away yet and that you lose too much of the resident interface features of the device by making the solution browser based instead. Thoughts ?
