You may be surprised to learn that Android apps have all of these bases well and truly covered! This article looks at a couple of these little helpers right now and sees what they are all about.

Home Improver Pro Lite by Egghead Design
Our second home improvement app from Android is another winner in our opinion! It will calculate the cost of your project and will even estimate how long the whole thing should take, we’re not sure if it allows for individual laziness however! Simply select the appropriate task and key in your measurements, the materials and the cost of these for a bespoke quotation result. It has a very useful measurement conversion feature for those of us who never got used to metric issues. You also have a pretty cool database of home improvement tips that cover almost every type of project you’ll ever wish to undertake. All of your painting, wallpapering, carpeting, tiling and flooring issues are included and you’ll not be short of inspiration once you see some of the excellent suggestions onboard. For those landscape garden enthusiasts, there is an encyclopaedic set of projects just waiting for you to hit the touchscreen. Even the swimming pool has been included and you can learn how to fill and maintain this awesome water feature from the experts. All this and absolutely free, we say it is a no brainer!
