Android 4.0+

Cost: \$1

Company: Comoving Magnetics

Calculate the maximum wires in a conduit, minimum box size, and minimum conduit/nipple size. The calculations use NEC 2008/2011, designed to give electrical engineers the correct information out in the field.

Android 2.3+

Cost: Free

Developer: Sergey Solovyev

This app is an advanced scientific calculator enabling users to perform basic and complex mathematical calculations on their mobile device.

Android 2.0.1+

Cost: Free

Company: Navaile

Electrical Calculator is designed for electricians. It is based on NEC 2008/2011. Among the calculations the app can do include grounding tables, motor FLC tables, voltage drop, Ohm's law, and wire size and capacity. Apps currently under development include conduit fill and electrical utility jurisdiction based on GPS location.

Campolese S.R.L.

This app is a fast standard beam solver (currently supported, cantilever, inclined, arches, fixed-fixed and fixed supported beams loaded with forces, moments and distributed loads) that calculates moments, shears, axial forces, rotations and lowerings by simply inserting input parameters. It's also possible calculate the area moment of inertia for rectangular sections.
