What type of mobile device should I use for Procore?

Things to Consider

Before choosing a mobile device for you or team members to use for Procore projects, consider the specifications and features that are most important for your organisation. For example:

  • Internet connectivity capabilities
  • Storage capacity
  • Battery life
  • Extensibility

Note: If you are deciding between iOS and Android devices, you can compare Procore's app functionality across mobile devices here: User Permission Matrix: Mobile.

Recommended Devices

We recommend either using Procore's iOS or Android applications for on-the-go field use.

For Procore iOS App

For Procore Android App

  • We recommend any device that meets the minimum software requirements for the Procore Android app. See Android Requirements.
  • For more information on the features available on the Android app, see Procore Mobile (Android).

Minimum device specifications to run the Procore app

We recommend using mobile devices with at least 64GB of free storage. However, some projects may require more free storage, as a device may need 5-10 GBs of storage per project for your 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 monthly data plans, Procore recommends individual users be at a minimum of 10GB, but, preferably, users subscribe to an unlimited data plan, monitor usage, and use Wi-fi whenever available.

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?

Can I use the Procore iOS and Android mobile app on a Jailbroken or Rooted mobile device?

Jailbreaking or Rooting your mobile device compromises and effectively removes many security mechanisms that iOS and Android operating systems provide. Doing so will leave your mobile devices and the apps you use, vulnerable for various forms of exploitation. Procore utilises those crucial security mechanisms to protect your confidential business data. Obtaining the Procore mobile app and using it on your compromised mobile device may expose confidential business data to prying eyes.

At Procore, we believe your data security and integrity is of the utmost concern and we strongly recommend you DO NOT Jailbreak or Root your mobile devices to run the Procore app, as Procore will not be responsible for any data leaking or loss on such devices.
