Which iPad Best for Work Situation
I work for a water, fire, and mold restoration/reconstruction company. Our corporate headquarters is developing an app that will run on iPads for our technicians to use in the field. I am trying to decide which iPad would be best, the full size or the mini. Would like opinions from some people who own both, or one or the other. Below, I have listed the primary functions it will be used for. Thanks for any feedback.
- taking photos of rooms we are working in to document file
- loading contracts that insurance companies want signed for homeowner to look over and sign
- scanning credit card or photographing checks for payment
- providing directions to next stop to crew as well as tracking of crews
- filling out of scope sheets for job
- barcode scanning equipment used on site to track inventory
- sketching room measurements
- making job file notes and entering humidity and moisture content amounts for job file documentation

The iPad mini since it sounds like they'll be carrying them around most of the time. And they're a handy size.
GSM Unlocked Moto X 16gb (Android 4.4.4)
ATT Nokia Lumia 520 8gb (Windows Phone 8.1)
Slate iPod Touch 5th Generation 32gb (iOS 8.0)
Slate iPad Mini 16gb (iOS 8.1)

I agree. Get a few of each and have your employees try both out? Though it seems the mini might be more preferable. Both even have the same camera, though I doubt the iPad's capabilities as a document scanner. Never got it to work properly as one.
