Managing the construction snagging through an app is the standard nowadays, as these platforms are making everyone’s life easier on-site with their sleek interfaces and cloud-based collaboration tools. This is a list of the best apps for construction snagging (in random order). These are all apps and software that can be used for Quality Control, nonconformities, punching and snagging inspections in a construction project. They are all very similar and very different in some ways, with some offering lots of “bells and whistles” and others being more “spartan”.

I keep on updating this list to keep it as fresh as possible but if you are using an app that has helped you in your construction project, then feel free to contact me, so that I add it to the list.

So, that is my list of the best apps for construction snagging but I keep on updating this list to include even more and make it as most up to date as possible. Many of these apps have lots of similarities in their interface and UI and some are most limited than others in what they can or cannot do. It goes without saying that this list is not exhaustive and if you are using any of these you are already a winner in the digitization front.
