I want to survey users who are mostly construction workers working on site where there is no internet for computer.

I want an app on cell phone (andriod/iphone) which I can take to the site and comeback and upload the data.

Thank you for suggestions!

With Limesurvey this is not possible at the moment. You will need to have access to internet (3g), then you could create a template that works well with the small screens and the mobile browsers. But there is no way to install Limesurvey on a smartphone, as you would need a webserver with PHP and MySQL.
Have a look at the manual! It is a really valuable source for information. Here some helpful links:

Are there any firms out there for custom app development for Limesurvey.
Thanks

Not that I am aware of. Would be great to have something like this. I was thinking of having some CAPI capabilities on a normal Windows/Linux notebook before. But I guess this is quite some work.

I recommend to use a netbook instead of an iPhone. This has the advantage that you can install a WAMP system (Windows, Apache, Mysql, PHP) and set up Limesurvey which can then be used offline.

For such tasks I have created an installer which sets up XAMPP (a WAMP system) with an already included Limesurvey with just one click.

If you still want to stick to using in iPhone, I recommend to use a smartphone optimized template (you still need internet access though). There is a new Limesurvey Template Shop which offers two different iPhone optimized Limesurvey templates.
