Architactile - iPAD, Architecture, and BIM

Back when I wrote my first post about Architecture and the iPad I received an email from a great guy named Matt.  Matt was in the process of developing an Architecture based product for the iPad.... Well, a few months later he sent me another email announcing that the product is coming soon!!

Architactile was founded by Tulsa based technologist Matt Galloway and inspired by conversations with and ideas from Matt’s long-time friend and local architect, Taylor King. Like good architecture, the goal of Architactile is simple yet transformative: we want to increase the efficiency of the business of architecture by streamlining and automating those actions, habits and behaviors that work.  We are currently working on our first product, tentatively named Inception, which is designed to help accelerate project initiation by improving data collection, scope definition, information management and communications from the point of the first client meeting through the signing of the contract.

This looks to be a great software that will generate new uses for the iPad... I immediately thought of how this software could link with, say, Revit?  I am not sure the basis of the software and if it utilizes some sort of database (looks like it does).  Perhaps there is a way to utilize a similar file type that Revit exports for room data, etc...

What do you think Matt?  Readers?
