Do you consider yourself tech-savvy? Now you can take your tech use to the next level, and use your digital best friend for more than socializing. Home maintenance has joined the party, with new DIY and decorating apps being created every week. Eliminate frustrating measurement issues, complicated math conversions and color conundrums with a simple touch of your iPhone or Android. Because, there really is an app for that!

There are thousands of home-related apps on the market - here are a few of the most interesting and useful apps to try out during your next DIY project:
