Home Depot App + Giveaway!

Let’s chat apps. There seems to be an app for everything these days, but if you are a renter, homeowner or an apartment dweller, the new Home Depot iphone app is calling your name.  It’s actually an app you will use. With the following features, how could this app not come in handy?

  • Tape measurer that uses your shoe size to calculate any horizontal distance such as the width of your garage door
  • Interactive caliper that measures the length or width of objects used for your home improvement
  • Room size calculator that helps you figure out how much paint, drywall, flooring or insulation to buy for those your upcoming home projects
  • Hundreds of how-to DIY video guides and customizable supply lists

I’m especially loving the room size calculator. I always try to “eyeball it” and we all know how that usually turns out. Bad. With this new app, I won’t over or under estimate a project – I’ll know exactly how much paint I’ll need for my next project.

And, the Home Depot is the only retailer offering you the opportunity to purchase a Gift Card on your iPhone and have it sent to the recipient as an eGift Card – ensuring  no one on your list will be ever be forgotten. You can also personalize the eGift Card by recording a message and/or uploading a video to accompany the gift.

    My boyfriend and I aren’t big gifters, we’re both more of a “ooh hey, this is perfect” all-year-long-gifters. Not fans of *needing* to gift.

    My family is a DIY family and I’m planning on making an awesome scrapwood birdhouse for my sister’s patio along with an IOU for an interior wall painting party that’s in the works.

    I’ve been designing and researching all year for a total front yard re-landscaping and a remodeling project (porch facelift) that I’m spearheading all for my mom’s house. We’re also getting the house ready for new exterior paint first thing next year.

  9. Rebecca Said:

    The ONLY thing Cody asked for from each person was a Home Depot giftcard. I kid you not :) As for our Christmas shopping, thank goodness for the internet. Taking a 5 month old to a busy mall to actually do some shopping makes me tired just thinking about it!

My fella and I are going to share a special evening together surrounded by boxes with wine and a dutch platter in our new house together!!
