Homeowners can do more with apps than post to Instagram or Snapchat. There are apps that can help you run your home more efficiently. A complete list of apps are available for everything from hanging pictures on level to apps that can help with home maintenance.
The apps that you need if you’re a homeowner are:
1. iHandy Level
If you’ve ever tried to hang a picture on the wall, you know how difficult it can be to make sure your picture is level. For a homeowner that needs everything to be perfect, a level is the right choice for hanging anything.
iHandy Level (iOS and Android) turns your device into a level.
You can calibrate the device, and once you have calibrated iHandy, you’ll then be able to level everything from décor to pictures. You can also perform angle measurements, measure vertically, calculate roof pitches and so much more.
It’s an app that CNN named a “Father’s Day App,” because the app allows for easy leveling.
2. Takl – Home Services on Demand
Takl is a lifestyle app, and it’s a highly rated app that connects you with everyone you can need to repair your home or perform maintenance in seconds. You can connect to handymen, lawn services, cleaners or even same-day help for furniture assembly and junk removal. The app even has approved providers.
You can connect with service providers that can perform basic plumbing repairs, sewer repairs, fix broken handrails or anything else.
Background checks are done on everyone that is allowed to make money from the app. You can also choose to secure a recurring job which means that you can choose to have the same lawnmower come out to your home every few weeks,
It’s an app that provides instant services for anyone that needs home help.
