Home Improvement Apps
You don't have to buy a lot of expensive gadgets to measure out your next home improvement project. Your smartphone can handle a lot of those tasks for a whole lot less! Our TCL Tech Producer and resident "Mr. Fix-It" Christian Unser shows you how.
1. If you need to draw a floorplan: Roomscan Pro
Simply place your smartphone against each wall in your room until it beeps. When it's done, you'll have a floorplan of your room complete with measurements!
You can take a picture of an object and the app can estimate its dimensions.
3. If you want to repaint a room: Tappainter
This app allows you to pick a paint color from a popular brand and see what it will look like on your wall.
A handy level to use when hanging pictures and artwork!
