The Home Depot

Shopping apps are nothing new, but the ones that go above and beyond the mobile version of the website need to be applauded. Home Depot's app not only lets you shop and ship large items that might be a pain to pick up in person, but it also has an in-store GPS, so you can locate a very specific item in no time at all.


With essentially the same interface as the desktop site, the Pinterest app is super fun and easy to use. It lets you curate endless mood boards to bookmark future craft projects, furnish purchases, or simply outline your ideas.


If you're trying to figure out how to fix, craft, or cook something for the very first time, chances are that a search result has led you right to wikiHow — so why not ask the app directly next time?

While you can use wikiHow for so much more than just home projects, it's a great image-centric resource for taking you step by step through anything from replacing a toilet flapper, to installing curtain rods, to cleaning stovetop burners.
