So it  looks like Benjamin Moore is not the only one jumping on the iPhone band wagon. I.D. Wood is an app brought to us by our friends at Double Dog Studios that allows you to access more than 50 different woods from around the world with full screen samples, raw cut and non-finished.

It also includes species and botanical names, origins, descriptions, and properties. I.D. Wood even offers common uses and information about durability and sustainability.

But that's not all. The app also features a wood glossary of more than 70 terms, illustrations of lumber cutting techniques, dimensional lumber conversions, a thickness measuring screen, a pilot hole reference, and a nail size reference.

You can browse by wood samples, species names, or other names for quick identification — so you can find a wood by a particular use, durability or sustainability status.

New woods will continue to be added.

For those of you with iPhones, check it out and let us know how useful it is. Thanks!
