Depends on the situation. If you're out in the field this is a lot easier than to fire up a netbook to do the same thing. I agree that it might not be a gamebreaker if you don't have an iDevice already but if you do I don't really see a downside to it (except maybe the lack of a display at the multimeter itself).
