Note: The HG Companion for Android and HG Companion for iOS require the HomeGauge Version 5 desktop software. The HG Companion for Android/iOS is not supported in HomeGauge 4. It is also highly recommended to use the HG Services for report and template transfer.
The HG Companion runs on Android smart phones and tablets, as well as the Apple iPhone and iPad. The HomeGauge Companion allows you to collect data using a mobile device and then transfer the report to a laptop or desktop to finish the report. Download it from the Google Play or iTunes store for free and purchase a license key to use it with the HomeGauge desktop here. HomeGauge Companion users will enjoy shaving tens of minutes off their inspection reporting time using unique time saving features such as:
Automatic picture placement at the inspection item. Simply go to the item on your phone or tablet and use the built in camera to take a picture. The picture is automatically placed at the item in the report.
Finger friendly reporting to quickly check off items and drop in auto-comments.
Record audio bytes at each item for those wanting to finish up at the office or have someone else complete the report.
Record video clips: Dishwasher noisy? Bees or pests at the home? Active leaks? Got video? Add some visual impact and turn your report into a presentation!
Use the HG Services Cloud feature to send your report wirelessly and effortlessly to your HG Services account. Use your main computer to retrieve the report, complete it, and send to your customers and agents. Note: Reports can be transferred manually (free, but requires steps not supported by HG) or with ease using HG Services Cloud Feature. (HG Services requires a subscription fee.)
