Did you know that the majority of DIY disasters happen during the Easter holidays; more in fact than any other time of the year?
With so many online DIY stores, such as EuroFit Direct, supplying all you need for DIY, here are the top 5 apps that might be able to help you once you have all your materials at hand:
By Smart Tools Co. for Android
Offering a complete package of 5 app sets including a total of 15 very handy tools, the Smart Tools App is very nearly everything you need for DIY. Divided into sets, you get for a very small price, the Smart Ruler Pro, Smart Measure Pro (distances etc.), Smart Compass Pro, Sound Meter Pro and the Smart Light Pro. With an overall rating of 4.5 from over 25,000 users, you are almost guaranteed bang for your buck with the Smart Tools app.
By Cyops International LLC for Apple
If you’re a bit of a novice with the old pipes, then the Plumbing app is definitely a resource that is worth having on your iPhone. Including video tutorials as well as very easy to understand instructions, the app guides you through the simplest, right up to the most complex plumbing tasks. Although the app is laden with US terminology, everything is easy to understand; great for if you do plan on fixing the spare toilet anytime soon.
By WikiHow for Android
Dubbed as the “world’s how to manual”, the WikiHow app will teach you how to do anything from tie your shoelaces right through to how to fix the kitchen sink. With more than 12,000 articles, the app offers a brilliant insight into the mechanisms of everyday life. With a rating of 4.3, you probably won’t be able to find a more useful app for free anywhere else in Google Play.
By iHandy Inc. for Apple
Bringing the edge of 21st century technology to an ancient skill trade, iHandy Carpenter gives you anything you need to support you through your carpentry. Including a spirit level, surface level, protractor, a plumb line and even a ruler, all tools are easy to use within the beautifully rendered graphics; something that doesn’t come so often for such a cheap app. Interestingly, if you’re using the spirit level and turn the iPhone backwards beyond 45 degrees, the bubble changes form and acts as if you are looking down from directly above it.
Convert Units For Free
By Free the Apps! For Apple
Billed as the number one unit conversion app on the Apple Store, Convert Units for Free can convert live currency rates, distances, times and temperatures along with a whole host of other units. Although you can very conveniently Google most of what is within the app itself, the all-encompassing nature of the app is very convenient if you are looking to save time.
