The purpose of the new app is to present images and technical information for over 1,000 natural stones from around the world. The app also has a search function, which allows you to find the stone you’re looking for based on stone type, color, country of origin and more. App users can even see stones in 3D format and share the images with clients, colleagues and friends.
This new technology will be most beneficial for designers and architects, who will be able to use the app when they’re at a job site or meeting with a client. Stone manufacturers, such as Stone Panels, Inc., can now use the app instead of bringing sample stones or a disorganized stack of documents.
MIA, which is considered an “authoritative expert” of natural stone, and studiomarmo, renown Italian natural stone graphics and web design experts, created the stone app. The app was built to take advantage of the iPad’s multi-touch screen and advanced capabilities.
The emergence of new technologies in the stone industry shows the probability of the industry fully embracing more expedited and efficient processes when approaching new projects.
