***Named one of the top 100 new home products for 2011 in This Old House magazine*** BalusterPro is a unique and handy tool designed for carpenters and woodworkers, but useful for do-it-yourselfers and homeowners alike. BalusterPro makes the chore of calculating spacing of handrail balusters a quick and elementary task.  It can also be used for any job requiring equal spacing between boards or slats.  Use for picket fences, bench/chair backs,decking or column flutes. ____________________________________ What users are saying: Punch in staircase and handrail dimensions, choose the configuration, and this app saves you the tedium of calculating baluster spacing. Hallelujah. This Old House Magazine BalusterPro is an awesome app and can be used for a multitude of layout tasks, at your desk, on the job, in your car—wherever your phone goes, and it only costs a few bucks. Gary Katz - Master finish carpenter and publisher of THISiscarpentry.com BalusterPro makes building that stairway more heavenly homefixated.com ____________________________________ Instructions for Use: BalusterPro offers calculations for six different common handrail situations which you may encounter.  First, tap the settings button to select your measurement input method, then select the desired type of baluster installation. Use the keypad or sliders to enter your measurements for ‘Run Length’ (distance between the newel posts) and the ‘Baluster Width.’  Finally, just drag the ‘Balusters Needed’ slider to see your required number of balusters. As you adjust the ‘Balusters Needed’ slider, the “Spacing Between Balusters” will simultaneously update. Stop when your ‘Spacing Between Balusters’ meets your specific code requirements. Tap the view button to see a list of all the centers and edges of the balusters. No longer will you need to keep pressing the add button on your traditional calculator to list your centers....they are all shown on one screen! It’s just that simple! You can display your measurements by selecting 1/16, 1/32, or metric on the main screen to determine your precision level. If desired you can also display your result down to 1/64. To do this, once you have done your calculation, simply tap the 'Spacing Between Balusters' result and if possible it will be further reduced down to 1/64 and displayed for 5 seconds. This is handy if you want to cut all your fillets at once as it nearly eliminates cumulative error. Tap the speak buttons at the bottoms of the list columns to have the app speak your measurements. ____________________________________________________________________ Check out my other construction related apps...StairBuilderPro for a stair stringer layout tool & TilePro for a simple tile layout tool. ____________________________________________________________________ Check out the video demo at my website to see BalusterPro in action.

I'm a residential carpenter and I love this app! It has saved me some much time and money while at the same time making for a much nicer final product. I not only use the app to lay-out balusters but also to lay-out wainscoting, coffered ceilings, shelving and even fencing.

This is a fantastic tool. As a finish carpenter I use it almost daily for a variety of layout tasks not just baluster spacing. An invaluable app I think is a must have for any carpenter. Also new voice feature is pretty cool.

I just finished rebuilding/expanding my deck and this app was a total lifesaver!! It made installing the balusters the easiest part of the job. Someone commented that they wish it handled longer runs, I can only assume this person didn't realize that "maximum run" is configurable in settings, I don't think there's a prob here. And while I agree that straight entry would be a little better than sliders, I soon figured out that if you change the "max run" to be just a tad larger than your actual run, it's not so touchy and you have more control. Bottom line is, if nothing ever changes in this app, it's still worth every cent.

Most useful app I ever purchased! Though I am an experienced framer. I am not much of a finish carpenter. I have only built one deck with balusters. And used this app for the only interior stair railings I have ever built. After spending over an hour trying to figure out the formula for correct spacing, which by the way never came out right. Ugh! I searched and found this app. It worked flawlessly and my spacing came out perfect! It saved me so much time and stress. Thank you! I will recommend it to everyone I know.

We were in the final stages of completing our 26' x 16' deck, and we were ready to install the railing and balusters. However, we were a little intimidated in making sure that the balusters were all spaced respectfully. After some frustration, I sat down and thought, "What the heck? I might as well shoot for a chance that there just may be some kind of app for this?!?" Sure enough, there was! I've never written a review on an app before, but this one was very worthy. Excellent tool!
