Can the Deed Calls – Area – Perimeter app import files as well?

“Lets say I have drawn the plot from a desktop, is there a way to send it to my phone (the app) and pull it up? Or do I have to draw it on the app every time?”
If your desktop application is PC-GIS, you can save the deed calls into a .dcf file then copy that file to your phone via iTunes. Then you will be able to pull it up in the Deed Calls – Area – Perimeter app.
If you have used some other app to prepare the deed plot, then you will need to export the data to a text file then edit it to conform to the format required by the Deed Calls – Area – Perimeter app. To see the file format, enter a few calls into the app and save it as a .dcf file. Then transfer the dcf file to your PC and view it by using a text editor.
Of course, if you have drawn a deed calls plot on the app and saved that into a file, you can call it up any time.
Please also check out the recently released Deed Calls Pro app, which will let you rotate a deed plot, work in a coordinate system other than LLA, as well as attach photos to a Feature.
