Available for both Android and iOS systems, this is one app that is pretty handy. It’s the sort of app that you will be thankful for when it comes to measuring your space when you’re thinking of buying furniture or adding or subtracting from the space. All you have to do is to take a snap of a space that you’re planning on working on and it’ll tag on notes that you’ll need. It will help you measure the space, and even tell you the present shade of paint or wallpaper that you are currently using.
