Web with mobile phoneIn this age of technology, it is no secret that there are millions and millions of apps available. I’m sure you have, at least once, seen an apple commercial that boast “there’s an app for that”. Whether you’re using an Android operating system, or Apple’s IOS operating system the applications available at your fingertip are many.

What you may not have known, however, are the several apps available to homeowners providing a new convenience that only technology could offer. Below are a few of our favorite apps.

Moving In

No more digging through boxes looking for your belongings after the move! Moving Van helps to keep your move seamless. With this app, you take pictures of the contents of each box, then mark which room in the house they belong in. Once moved in, you can easily choose what you are looking for, and pull up a photo of the boxes contents in moments.

Photo Measures Lite is another helpful tool, when moving in. You simply take pictures of the rooms in your new home, and the app automatically records measurements! This will let you choose how to space your furniture and décor in your new home, without having to resort to trial and error.

Planning on a housewarming party

Evite is an application that allows you to send out invites to your guest, manage your RSVPS,  and share updates and information with your guest. Definitely a  party planning must have. This app is available on both Iphone and Android.

Interior Design

Dream Home ($.99) provides a vast array of colors, styles, room types, and interior design photos.  Similarly, Houzz Interior Designs provides many of the same features; but takes it a step further by allowing you to find a local designer to help make your vision a reality! Color Change also allows you to take photos of your rooms, and see how they would look painted different colors!

Energy Effiencey

Social Energy App and Myenergy.com are both free apps, which allow you to monitor your home’s energy usage online. You can compare the energy your home uses with house of similar sizes to see how your home compares.
