  • Best Apps For Home & Health

    [caption id="attachment_3860" align="alignleft" width="319" caption="Got Apps?"]store[/caption]


    If you have a smartphone then you know how great the app selections are. I love going on my Droid Market (which is similar to the app store for Apple) and searching for various topics. Living in a city, there are plenty of apps that make it easier to get around. Apps for the T (subway in Boston), restaurant reviews and reservations, movie times and directions. But there are plenty of other apps out there for your home & health. Take a look at some of these apps for your home & well being:

    You may not have considered it before, but when it comes to home renovation your smartphone is one of the most powerful tools not in your toolbox.

    With 300,000 apps in Apple’s App Store, and another 200,000 in the Android Market, there’s a wealth of digital tools available for nearly any project you’re looking to tackle. So whether you want to build a shelf, paint a room or even just hang a picture, your smartphone should be one of your top go-to tools.

    Building Tools

    If you need to measure something in a pinch, reach for Ruler 2 (iPhone/iPad, $0.99). The app is limited by the iPhone’s 3-inch screen and the iPad’s 8-inch screen, but if you find yourself needing to double check your measurements and you can’t find a ruler, this app is a perfectly good stand-in for the real thing.

    For more complex jobs, the iHandy Carpenter (iPhone/Android, $1.99) combines a level, a plumb bob, a protractor and several other tools in a single app, ensuring that you’ll be covered for any number of carpentry tasks.

    Need to switch between metric and imperial measurements? There are a host of great conversion tools, like Mint Converter, a free iPhone app that will convert any measurement from metric to imperial.

    The planning stage can be the most daunting part of a renovation, so the Handy Man DIY app (iPhone, $1.99) helps you calculate square footage, lets you make a shopping list and provides useful how-to manuals for many basic projects. With the Handyman Sidekick (iPhone, $1.99) you can even input the size of your project and it will estimate how much mulch, paint, drywall or flooring you need to buy to get the job done.
