Which tablet device should I purchase for using Procore?

Things to Consider

  • Storage
  • Connectivity
  • Battery life
  • Extensibility
  • Procore Features
  • Common use cases / personas

Most Recommended Devices

We recommend either using Procore’s iOS or Android applications for on-the-go field use such as a punch walk.

For Procore iOS App

  • We recommend either the iPad Pro 9.7 inch or the iPad Air2 (32 GB and above) for running the Procore app.
  • For what features are available on the Apple app, see Procore Mobile (iPhone and iPad)

For Procore Android App

  • We recommend the Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 for running the Procore app. 
  • For what features are available on the Android app, see Procore Mobile (Android)
When should I use a Microsoft Surface Pro or similar convertible/2-in-1 hybrid devices?

Many of our customers are interested in buying one device instead of two for their teams’ office and traveling needs. In most cases, the Surface Pro 4 is the go-to choice for many IT departments. However, due to battery, connectivity, and portability limitations of convertible or 2-in-1 hybrid devices when compared to other mobile products (iPhone, iPad, Android Phone), we do not recommend them as the best device for in-the-field use.

For Procore Windows App

  • We recommend the Microsoft Surface Pro 4 (128 GB) for running the Procore app.
  • For what features are available on the Windows app, see Procore Mobile (Windows) 

Minimum device specifications to run the Procore app

We recommend using devices that have at least 32GB free of storage. This is due to many projects requiring 5-10 GBs of storage for their project's drawings, photos, and other documents. We also recommend to follow industry standard Corporate IT equipment guidelines of replacing your device every 2-3 years, so that your device’s speed and battery capacity keep up with the demands of the most up-to-date operating system and applications.

For offline use on some of the Procore apps below, the Procore app will store data locally to your device. The amount of space required on your device will depend on the number of these items within each project. As a rough guide, each page of a drawing requires 1.5 MB of space, each photo is roughly 1 MB, and each page of a document is roughly 1.5 MB. So for large projects, it is not uncommon for the Procore app to store between 5-10 GB total. See How do I manage the storage the Procore mobile app is using on my device?
