The world of apps is a new frontier for the likes of The Builder who is a little technologically behind, however recently he needed a quick answer and decided to find an app to help. This led to a discussion on what sort of apps would be most beneficial for the home handyperson. Today I would like to share the 5 most useful apps I found.
5 Apps for The Home Handyperson
A spirit level is such a handy tool, which can be used for any job from hanging a picture to building a wall. Now conventienly able to be downloaded and used via your mobile phone.

This app is all kinds of awesome, able to calculate materials and quantities for any given space. Simply input the length and width of the room and select which materials required and let the calculator do the rest. This is one of The Builder’s favourite apps, a handy tool for when you are on the go. Great for a handyperson, it comes at a cost of $7.61 and is available for Apple and Andriod devices.
This handy little tool, allows you to take a photo of the area you are measuring and then make notes on the photo to document the measurements taken. Bosch have a whole tool kit of apps that can be downloaded for free for both Apple and Andriod devices.
