iBend Pipe download

iBend Pipe is the best conduit bending applicaiton on an iPhone, it helps you bend it right...the first time.

It calculates the following bends using English or Metric measurements so you don’t have to:

-Offsets Bends (specify towards an obstruction or away from an obstruction)
-Rolling Offsets Bends (specify towards an obstruction or away from an obstruction)
-Parallel Offset Adjustment
-3-Bend Saddles
-4-Bend Saddles
-Segment Bends
-90° Bends
-Back to Back 90° Bends
-Kicked 90°s Bends
-Compound 90° Bends around a Round Obstruction
-Compound 90° Bends around a Square Obstruction
-Compound 90° Bends around a Rectangular Obstruction

+ HOW DOES IT WORK?
Simply slide your finger to set measurements and results are updated instantly. There is no need to navigate through multiple screens just to get a measurement. Easy and intuitive to use, and measurement are displayed in big font to make it easy to read.

+FAST ONE SCREEN CALCULATIONS
Simple one screen calculations that show results "live" and on the fly as you slide your finger to enter values in.

+ACCURATE CALCULATIONS
Centerline bending radius - based calculations are also available. These calculations offer greater accuracy when compared to bending multiplier methods. Preposition your bends automatically. All bends take shrink into account so you don't have to do any math. What's faster - bending it twice or bending it right the first time?

+PROTRACTOR FUNCTION INCLUDED
Use the included protractor function to measure the angle as you bend. Angle will be fed directly from your input screen to save you time.

+BENDER PROFILES
Almost 100 different bender/pipe combinations included. You have the ability to tweak or completely modify any of the combinations to match your bender on the field.

+ WHO IS IT FOR?
If you consider yourself a craftsman that takes pride in his work, iBend Pipe is for you. If other "sparkies" come to you when they have a difficult bend, this is for you. If you want to have a smaller "bone" pile, this is for you. If you can write your name in conduit, this is for you. From, a 1st year inside wireman apprentice to a seasoned “old timer” this app will save you time and material.

Input fractions instead of converting to decimals and get results in fractions.

Thanks for all the great reviews, if you have any suggestions:

Being a new installer conduit seemed pretty intimidating specially for the complexity of our projects but this app makes it easy to achieve the desired results my beds looks better than those of seasoned professionals ( even my boss and customer have praised my work)

This is the best app if your a electrician and bend a lot of conduit. I love this app and I don't use it all the time but when I do need it. It is freaking awesome and saves a lot of time.

I agree with all the brothers that this updated app totally ruined this once great app. I find it very unrealistic to use in the field. I wrote an email to the web designer about my grievance. Hope you all do the same. Thank you and be safe brothers and sisters.

Fyah123

Update ruined a good thing!  Fyah123  1 star

Horrible update!! I used to get the distance between bends on my offsets and rolling offsets and now its just to complex and time consuming. It was way better when it was simple. Please revert back!!

Sparky Bender

Latest update (6/2015) killed this app!  Sparky Bender  1 star

I have used this app extensively for the past few years on the job as a tool to quickly figure out the spacing between marks for basic offsets and saddles. The latest update (6/2015) unnecessarily made the whole process very confusing. I will not be using this app anymore unless it gets reverted back to how it was before this latest update. PLEASE BRING THE APP BACK TO THE WAY IT WAS.

Cglinvil

Old version please?!?!  Cglinvil  1 star

I just want the math, I can do the rest of the thinking on my own. Bad update guys. Took an app I used daily and made it into one I'll rarely ever use and may possibly delete.

terrible update  a bridezilla  1 star

Everyday electrician

Go back to the old version!  Everyday electrician  1 star

The updated version of this app is terrible. The old was a lot easier to use. Please get rid of this new update.

Changeitback383

Don't update !!!!!!!  Changeitback383  1 star

The update ruined this app. It went from one of the best pipe bending apps to one of the worst. On a job with 25 electricians, they all loved it and recommended it now they won't use it at all. Please listen to the reviews and change it back.

Here's my two cents' worth  ArthurBurke  5 star

First off, let me begin by saying I've been bending pipe for more than 40 years so I do know a thing or two about what I'm saying. The iBend Pipe app in its original form was a great app, straight forward and on the money. I recently downloaded the latest update, 4.0. Yes, the developer made a few changes in the app concerning the calculations. Yes, he changed from the "old fashioned" way to using the center of the bend. And I have been reading the reviews concerning this change. {Obligatory Soapbox} Here's my take on what I've been reading: if you cannot adapt the way you bend pipe, if you can't wrap your head around the fact that there is more than one way to bend pipe, if you can't make your bender work for you instead of the other way around, then you really don't know how to bend pipe. As I mentioned, I've been bending pipe for over 40 years. The changes I've seen in this latest update make pipe bending, especially saddles, a whole lot easier. If you would spend 10 minutes and look at the app the night before you have to use it you would be able to use it easily. When you are in a crunch is NOT the time to figure out how to do something. The developer has gone to great lengths to make our job of bending pipe as easy as possible, short of making an app that would bend it for us. Don't bad-mouth this app simply because it takes you out of your "comfort zone" and shows you another solution to a problem. If you can't wrap your head around the fact that there is more than one way to bend pipe, maybe you should step away from the bender and let a professional take over. You just may learn something, so long as you're not too stuck in your comfort zone. Or change your career path. {End of Obligatory Soapbox} As far as the update is concerned, it is an excellent app. There is a minor bug (I've already emailed the developer - very quick response from him, I might add) in that if you edit a bender the app doesn't save the changes and in order to restore the original values, you have to reset the whole bender list. Not a big deal (to this professional). Just need to remember to add/subtract the difference. 10 STARS if that's possible in the App Store.

Was an app I used daily until the update, now it is completely useless. I won't be recommending this app any more. Can I get my money back!!
