The OHI App-Center
The Best Home Improvement
Apps We've Found

Del.icio.us

We created the App-Center just for you. One of our fans asked not long ago "What are the best home improvement apps for us to complete the Envision-It, Design-It, Plan-It, and Build-It steps for our home improvements?" We have searched far and wide for the best applications out there and here they are.

What we found among the clutter of 100,000-plus iPhone-apps and Android-apps on the market are the coolest tools for home-improvements, remodeling, and renovating. Have fun with these! They are a wonderful source of design inspiration.



For your convenience we have arranged the App-Center by category.

Please let us know if we missed any that you can't live without, so we can share with our readers. Please use the "Contact Us" button on our home page.

Once you've made completed your vision and planning, be sure to check out our

Remodeling-Apps page for even more resources on "how to make it happen" and build your project.
