Apps imageApps are becoming more and more popular for the mobile user 

Here we give a few suggestions of Welding Apps for When You’re on the Go

In today’s digitally saturated world it’s hard to avoid the notion of the app. Apps—short for applications—are bite-sized software programs that users download onto their mobile phones or tablet from the Internet. There are apps for just about every conceivable activity. You can play games, count calories, balance your check book and find happy hour drink specials—all on the go.

Believe it or not, there are also a fair number of welding apps for use on both Apple and Android tablets and smart phones. You can identify the welding parameters of your next job, calculate weld costs, look up cut charts and error codes, and get help with the interpretation of industrial radiographs. American Welding Online even has an app that helps you prepare for the Certified Welding Inspector Examination.

The editors of the Welding Journal have delved into the world of welding apps and come up with some helpful tips and a list of welding apps for you to look into. 

Many apps are intuitive and require no instructions to use. They usually begin by asking you to answer a few questions to define your situation, then open a scroll-down page with the answers, recommended settings, data chart, a table, equipment settings, required filler metals, etc.

Many equipment and consumable manufacturers offer apps that make it easy to compare the features and capabilities of their products.

Many apps can be downloaded for free. However some free apps are “Lite” versions designed to introduce the user to basic functions and promote the purchase of the “Full” version. Sometimes the “Lite” version is all you really need.

Many apps provide the opportunity to experiment with different metals, materials thicknesses, processes, etc., to get a feel for how various processes work.

To search for an app just Google your topic and the word app or application. Useful apps are often found on welding equipment manufacturers’ Websites.

The AWS suggest you check for new apps online occasionally, since they are added and updated daily.
