Handy apps that'll help you when moving house
Moving house is stressful and hard work, so you'll be glad to hear that there's something that'll make it easier - the smartphone in your pocket.
As you've probably heard, there's an app for just about everything. And that includes moving house.
So, rather than you jumping online and trying to find the useful ones, we've put together a list of the apps that you need to download when moving.
Google Keep - This nifty app lets you make quick notes on the go. There are a lot of note taking apps out there, but this is probably the simplest and the quickest to use. So when you remember that job that needs doing before you move, or that you need to cancel or re-arrange a billing address you can note it down.
Never forget the little jobs again.
Sortly - One of the big jobs everyone hates when it comes to moving is packing. You've bought the boxes, picked up some masking tape and you're ready to start. Not just yet. Download Sortly first. It's a smart app that allows you to create a visual inventory of your belongings. You select a category, take a picture, and tag the item. And then you can create different folders for each of your boxes.
When you finally get to your new house there's no scrambling about trying to find the bottle opener. Just pull open Sortly!
Houzz - The most exciting part of moving is the fact that you have a new blank slate to make your own. But finding an interior design idea that you like can be a little tricky. Enter the Houzz app. Described as the "Wikipedia of interior design" it's the largest database of home design ideas out there. Perfect for anyone looking for inspiration in their new home.
Bubble level - Okay, okay - this isn't necessarily going to help you move, but it's going to help when you get there. After you've looked at Houzz and decided on a design you like, you need to get to work creating it. So when you're putting that new shelf off, make sure it isn't wonky with a bubble level app. There are a few out there and a quick search in your apps store of choice will bring up all the results you need.
Brightnest - Whether you're moving into your first home, or you've decided to relocate, Brightnest can help you organise your home and even take the location of your new property and offer up things that are relevant in that area.
So let your smartphone make moving home easier and download these handy apps right now.
