We’re living in a hyper-digital world, and many of us like to DIY to escape the vibrating computer screen. But digital media can play a part in your next DIY too! There are plenty of apps out there that are the perfect addition to your DIY toolkit or inspiration board.

As if DIYing couldn’t get any more fun, enter DIY – Get Skills. Be Awesome. This gamified app grants badges for different types of DIYs that you post and share with friends. This app has a strong community filled with sharing and skill-building!

Can’t keep your patterns in order? This app will help keep you organized. It keeps all of you information on file so that you can make that dress at the drop of a hat.

Dimensions

 

Dimensions is a great tool if you don’t have a ruler handy. Actually, just drop the ruler and use this app which tells you the dimensions of any item up to .078 millimeters. Now that’s more precise than even our own eyeballs!

Of course Pantone would make an app that would make deciding on colors even more exciting and beautiful. Finding great color combinations has never been easier with this swatch app.
