Do It Yourself (But Ask Your Phone for Help!): Five Great DIY Apps!

We all like to think of ourselves as a bit of a dab hand at DIY, loudly proclaiming to any group of people that will tentatively agree to listen how we bravely wrestled with that Billy bookcase before it finally conceded and stayed upright, and whilst that undeniably vast collection of tools might hang impressively from their special wall mount in the garage (or the shed, if you’re a real man) they’re not there as a display piece now are they? We hate to break the news, but putting together flatpack furniture, regrettably, doesn’t really count either, and if you’ve been putting off a big job due to not wanting to mucky the instruments, or simply not really knowing where to start (don’t worry – your secret’s safe with us) we think we might have just the remedy. Get out your phone – here’re five great apps that could save you from a DIY disaster!

Fortunately, in spite of mowing away our time with pictures of other people’s food and their life-affirming comments about the weather, our phones also have some spectacularly useful applications. The following five examples are apps downloadable from the digital marketplace of your choice that could help kickstart your DIY project! Finally.

It outlines the tools you need and provides some lovely pictures to help!

Handy Man takes the idea one step further – instead of scribbling down all your ideas and measurements and notes for a project into an archaic old notebook, like you were from the 5 th Century or something, stick it all in this app! With sections for inputting things like room height, wall length, number of windows, and more, you can accurately note down every aspect of the space in question, and refer to it as a handy reference. It even has a cheeky How-to guide built into its very pages!
