The one thing we all know about using tablets is that most do not have a flash, and trying to get a photo in a loft space (or other dark area) whilst measuring, holding the tablet, and everything else is just too much for one person. To get around this particular problem, NES Touch allows you to take photos on another device and upload them into the app.

In this example we have taken the photos on a smartphone and e-mailed them across, but this can also be done via Bluetooh, Dropbox or using a data transfer cable.
