Android Tablet Users – We Want Your Input!

by

If you’re an Android tablet user with a few minutes to spare, here’s your chance to be heard! As Bluebeam explores development in the Android space, we’d love to learn more about which devices you are using and how you’re using them. Simply take our Android Tablet Survey to share your thoughts, experiences and preferences with us. The survey takes less than 10 minutes to complete and will go a long way in making sure we understand and address your needs.

Until next time,

Jenn

    Absolutely cant wait till that becomes a reality. I think it would be a huge asset for my Samsung 12.2 pro. The bigger screen coupled with the Wacom stylus would be a dream. I’d gladly ditch my Ipad Air.

    Samsung tablets are the best to develop for

  3. Heather Says:

    What amazes me is that “Bluebeam No Limits” has this limitation. Bluebeam for Android would be so useful in our workplace. We’d pay for it, too.

  4. Matt Says:

    Filled out the survey and agree with all the previous commenters. At the very least please bring over the iPad equivalent. Stylus support would be HUGE.

  5. Apel Says:

    I can’t wait to have bluebeam on my Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1. This would be the best App for the best Android Tablet. All construction related business will buy the app and the tablet. Having the ability to draw with a stylus on a tablet is a huge advantage over the ipad. I bet that everyone will pay to get this app including Samsung.

    I’ll not use Apple products. I’d like BB on android, but I’ll use something else if they won’t open them up.

  7. Scott Says:

    Anyone heard of an anticipated release date for BB for android? Can’t wait to get it onto my Samsung Pro 12.2.

  8. Justin Says:

    Yes bluebeam for android its about time already.

  9. Chris Ryan Says:

    Agree with all previous comments! I have been waiting patiently for Bluebeam to become available on Android for more than two years. I am a huge advocate of Bluebeam, I sell it every chance I get. Give me another reason to tell people that Bluebeam is the ONLY PDF software you need, support my Note 12.2. Please and Thank You!!!

    I use a Samsung Note 10.1 2014 edition for work and was really excited to utilize the S-Pen for taking notes and editing drawings in the field during retrofits but I’ve been having problems find a suitable app that does this. I use BB on my laptop and would love to be able to use it on my Tablet as-well. Common Bluebeam!

  11. Anders Lynnér Says:

    Hello, I use an Xperia Z2 tablet. It is very good in the field since it has a water and dust resistant shell that makes it invulnerable on building sites. I would use it to markup on layouts, but since Bluebeam only exists for IPad I cannot use it. The primary use is currently for things such as web browsing, book reading and media handling. Hope to see an android version of Bluebeam very soon.

    would love to have it on my samsung galaxy. the only reason i use my ipad mini right now is because of bluebeam. if it was on the android, i would have all devices switched over.

  13. Matthew Masocco Says:

    Have been looking for something like bb for my Galaxy note10.1 2014, so far the best I can find is a combo of ezpdf and adobe. I have used a plastic square with the S pen for drawing on blue prints using the native s pen features. I just bought bb for my laptop and as I use it I can’t help but think how I could use this on my note. Im not interested in buying an I pad, already have superior hardware, and won’t downgrade to use bb. I held off from buying bb for a long time because of this, there are many time that I won’t have my laptop with me, sometimes I may not even turn it on for days, and only use my note simply because I won’t have a convenient place to setup a laptop, construction sites require a great deal of flexibility that can only be achieved with a tablet. Knowing what bb can do and knowing what my tablet can do, and not being able to use together is rather frustrating, PLEASE DO SOMETHING.

      Ditto on all accounts! I’m floored they do not have Android support at this point. I have the 10.1 as well and rely heavily on Revu for drawing markups, takeoffs, documentation, etc. and it is very frustrating not to be able to take the same functionality to the field. Our company issues GNote 10.1’s to all field supervisors and managers – it is a great device, especially for annotation/handwriting. Android tablets will continue to be a viable (if not superior) alternative to iOS. Bluebeam needs to get this done!

    nvidia shield tablet would be great. has stylus and great graphics and powerful specs.

  15. johnson@swenson.com Says:

    We need it!

  16. Mitch Says:

    When will Bluebeam make this happen? This survey’s been out for more than 10 months, yet we have no updates?

  17. JP Says:

    This has been discussed for years with no forward momentum from Bluebeam. Seriously, get this going.

  18. Pete Says:

    We’d use it over and over again

  19. Dean Says:

    I hope bluebeam is able to make this happen soon. I use it on my ipads already, but I use Nexus 10 to fly my drone (better app than ipad version). If I could have everything on one device it would help alot, and I could move forward with purchasing another drone and nexus

  20. Zito Says:

    I would love to use it on my note tablet and styles out in the field.

  21. Niall Says:

    I would be great to know if this is happening or not, just a definitive answer would help me make some choices. thank you

    • CC Says:

      I’d like to know as well, we are sitting on the fence on deciding whether to proceed with Bluebeam or not and this is the deciding factor… is it a ‘yes’ or ‘no’?

  22. Training Director Says:

    We train thousands of Apprentice and Journeyman electricians in North Texas and would use the product now if it were pc/android tablet friendly.

  23. anthony Says:

    its a joke that bluebeam hasn’t approached this. i use many autodesk products on my tablet which bluebeam integrates with yet they havent made an android version?, simply mind blowing. everyone knows the galaxy note is the best tablet w stylus on the market.

  24. Aaron Dahl Says:

    integrating a punchlist capability like that of FieldLens would be helpful. I hope it’s obvious, but if it’s going on an Android device it better be compatible with Google Drive.

  25. Jim Says:

    We have used bluebeam in the past and found it to be very useful. Looking ahead Bluebeam for Android would be a useful tool in our workplace. The biggest challenge is that our communication devices are android and link with our tablets. Having to purchase different tablets for the ability to use this software doesn’t seem cost effective for 160 users.

  26. fs Says:

    My office uses bluebeam extreme, but uses the Samsung note and galaxy phones. In addition, all the field computers are note 12.2. Which are great for in field design and markup regarding cad drawings and protect documentation. The lack of support to the android products are the principal reason we are not renewing the seats and seeking a more viable alternative. It is a shame, as the extreme version is really nice software.

  27. NTJ Says:

    I’ve been running BB Extreme for over 5 years and love it. I just don’t understand the lack of development for the Android platform.
    I’ve been running a Sam 12.2 for more than a year and haven’t had bring print plans into the field since. I would however love to have ability to run BB rather than the plain PDF apps on the market.
    If Microsoft has seen the writing on the wall (and they move at a snail’s pace) I don’t see how BB hasn’t.
    Get moving, release an Android version with ability to access all the major cloud services and you’ll have a huge winner!

  28. Mitch Says:

    Bluebeam believes that webcasts, editorials, and a digital magazine are important. Bluebeam USERS believe support for android is important.

    One of the recent Bluebeam editorial features was titled “Tech & The Next Generation”, which oddly enough doesn’t mention anything about support for android. It’s very frustrating that Bluebeam doesn’t seem to care about Android. Our company uses Android only and we won’t be changing anytime soon. I hope to continue to use Bluebeam and I hope to see it on Android soon… Otherwise I too will be looking for other options.

  29. Bradley Foster Says:

    We use Micrsoft surface pro’s and they are awesome. Can we use this software on the surface pro’s ??

  30. Chad Says:

    Like everyone else, I would love to see Bluebeam Revu on the Android platform. All of our superintendents and some foremen have tablets on site for time cards and plan reading.

  31. Jason Says:

    Any time I consider new software, the first thing I look into is cross platform capability and I believe software developers should do the same thing. If not, you’re immediately limiting your market by at least 1/3.

    There’s one company I know of that got this concept right from the start and that’s todoist. While their software isn’t nearly as robust, it caters to everyone.

    That being said, if bluebeam is made available on Android, I will start using it immediately.
