iBend Pipe is the best conduit bending applicaiton on an iPhone, it helps you bend it right...the first time.

It calculates the following bends using English or Metric measurements so you don’t have to:

-Offsets Bends (specify towards an obstruction or away from an obstruction)
-Rolling Offsets Bends (specify towards an obstruction or away from an obstruction)
-Parallel Offset Adjustment
-3-Bend Saddles
-4-Bend Saddles
-Segment Bends
-90° Bends
-Back to Back 90° Bends
-Kicked 90°s Bends
-Compound 90° Bends around a Round Obstruction
-Compound 90° Bends around a Square Obstruction
-Compound 90° Bends around a Rectangular Obstruction

Simply slide your finger to set measurements and results are updated instantly. There is no need to navigate through multiple screens just to get a measurement. Easy and intuitive to use, and measurement are displayed in big font to make it easy to read.

Simple one screen calculations that show results "live" and on the fly as you slide your finger to enter values in.

Centerline bending radius - based calculations are also available. These calculations offer greater accuracy when compared to bending multiplier methods. Preposition your bends automatically. All bends take shrink into account so you dont have to do any math. Whats faster - bending it twice or bending it right the first time?

Use the included protractor function to measure the angle as you bend. Angle will be fed directly from your input screen to save you time.

Almost 100 different bender/pipe combinations included. You have the ability to tweak or completely modify any of the combinations to match your bender on the field.

If you consider yourself a craftsman that takes pride in his work, iBend Pipe is for you. If other "sparkies" come to you when they have a difficult bend, this is for you. If you want to have a smaller "bone" pile, this is for you. If you can write your name in conduit, this is for you. From, a 1st year inside wireman apprentice to a seasoned “old timer” this app will save you time and material.

Input fractions instead of converting to decimals and get results in fractions.

Thanks for all the great reviews, if you have any suggestions:

Pros and cons of iBend Pipe app for iPhone and iPad

iBend Pipe app good for

This app was a tremendous help to me I had to bend a 12 offset on a 1 1/4 rigid pipe using 45 degree bends ,the degree indicator onthe old chigago bender was missising and the floor of the parking garage I was in was sloped every way possible but the level feature on this app helped me set the zero begining referance and the 45 angle . It also helped in marking my 2 bend points . I highly recomend this app for anyone who needs to bend pipe.
Must buy. Price high? No way. Just like buying another tool for the job.
Just another tool in the bag. Super easy to use, and understand. Excellent interface if you cant figure out how tobise this app, you should of been a plumber! Worth every penny.
I would like to set something strength. 4 point saddles are two offsets back to back, that alone should not cost this fantastic tool a star, I am giving 4/5 stars because I think we need bigger pipe size calculations and tables ( deductions) and other measurements. Looking forward to rate this app next time. Keep up the good job and release more updates soon. Truth is I dont use this app very often at all, but web I needed to make a perfect 3 pointer this saved me. Cheers
Definitely the best one out there, the 4-point saddle doesnt quite work as intended (I think the ABCD measurements are a bit off, either that or Im way dumber than I thought) other than that hiccup its awesome!
Aside from on-line banking, this is the best app I have. I find it very useful and intuitively laid out. This app wont make anyone a Master bender overnight, but, if you already know how to calculate and bend pipe, this is an invaluable tool. Note - the only reason Im giving this four and not five stars is, given the functionality of this thing, the creators might have something else up their sleeve. Thank you and Happy Bending!

Some bad moments

Could be useful as a tool for bending tubing if I know the bend radius and it can be changed
Ive been bending conduit for many years. Its great for people who casual bend. There is very little for the daily bender. It is useful for apprentices to see what is possible to bend.
The updated version of this app is terrible. The old was a lot easier to use. Please get rid of this new update.
is there anyway to reverse the update back to the simplicity the app used to have ? this is ridiculous it worked fine as it was why ruin a good thing . please fix this asap
I just want the math, I can do the rest of the thinking on my own. Bad update guys. Took an app I used daily and made it into one Ill rarely ever use and may possibly delete.
I have used this app extensively for the past few years on the job as a tool to quickly figure out the spacing between marks for basic offsets and saddles. The latest update (6/2015) unnecessarily made the whole process very confusing. I will not be using this app anymore unless it gets reverted back to how it was before this latest update. PLEASE BRING THE APP BACK TO THE WAY IT WAS.
