IOS Ipad app - generate customer quotes from iPad?

Hi,

I am helping a friend looking for a requirement to be able to do the following:

1. Take some photos.
2. Add some photos to a quote.
3. Edit the quote and make some annotations.
4. Email this quote to a client.

Specifically I want to be able to do this using an iPad. The user will
be an Arborist so I don't imagine they would always have stable internet
access. So something that can batch things up might work better like
being able to work in an offline mode. Having like a quote template
where they can populate the customer details.

I have been thinking of CRM type apps but am having problems as things
don't seem to actively support IOS. I know that Microsoft Dynamics has
an ios app but cant find clear information if it can do this.

So if anybody knows about dynamics can help me out with this that
would be great. My friend currently has an Office 365 subscription btw.

So any iPad apps that can help with this?

Any thoughts?
Thanks,
Ward.

Which Ipad ?  with or without 4G/Cellular plan? Some only have WIFI. Create a private website for them is the easiest

David,

Thanks for the response. I am not sure which model iPad they have - I will try to find out. Let's assume they have one with mobile ineternet access.

Can you elaborate on the private website access,

Thanks

Ward

create a website with the needed functionality that requires a login. This gets rid of any dependancies, developing an IOS app requires that you own a mac.
