Top 5 home apps every homeowner needs


 Whether you're looking for plumbing tips or decor inspiration for your living room, there's a home app -- or five -- for that. Here's our favorites.

Here at vipHomeLink, we're obsessed with house apps. We love to decorate for holidays, organize our home's important documents, and make sure we're on schedule with our maintenance calendar. You can complete these (or get inspiration to do so) through an app, but not all home apps are worthy of a space on your phone or tablet. We've compiled a list of a few of our favorites that deserve to be page one on your device. 

Houzz for home design  

If you are a home decorator at heart, this app is for you. Houzz provides photos, videos, and stories for room inspirations. How about a 26-foot rock climbing wall in your living room? Or a kitchen that can fit a wheelchair? Houzz has it. And if you find a piece of furniture or a fixture you like for your house, you can buy directly in the app. Not sure how furniture will look in your space? Use the augmented reality function to see the design in your room at home. If your project has become too much for you to manage, hire a professional with one click.

2Do for list making  

 While vipHomeLink sends you reminders and recommendations for home maintenance, we know you have a lot going on. Fitting in your home tasks with your work tasks and your family's schedule can be challenging, but 2Do can help. This extremely customizable app allows you to create different list categories to keep your home tasks, work tasks, and school tasks separate, or you can combine them in projects and smart lists. There is also a section for quick notes, where you can jot down thoughts and ideas before you forget them (as we all do). While there's a slight learning curve, 2Do is easy to master and made for speed. It is the perfect app for moderately to insanely busy people on the go.

Cozi for family management  

The award-winning Cozi keeps your family organized with all your plans in one place. Working with Google, Apple, and Outlook calendars, this app gives family members the same password to access all calendars, to-do lists, and even recipe ideas. Upgrade to Cozi Gold and you can share shopping lists, a monthly view, and birthday reminders. With one glance at Cozi's app, everyone knows what they are doing and when, including your home's routine maintenance or holiday decorating. You'll never hear, "You didn't tell me about that," again.

Wink for smart home technology  

Connect all your home appliances in one place, on one website. The Wink Hub 2 connects to more devices than any other hub presently on the market. The app enables you to set your thermostat, unlock your doors, raise your blinds, open garage doors, whatever you use smart home technology for. So if you left your lights on, no worries! You can turn them off from your app. What happens if a leak occurs? Stop any flooding with the Dome Water Main Shut-Off Valve with leak sensors. Worried about your home? Don't be! With Wink, security is paramount, and they have installed new hardware mechanism to prevent tampering.

vipHomeLink, your complete digital home management solution 

 You're on our website, so you had to know our app would pop up on this list. But we're not into shameless plugs. At vipHomeLink, our mission is to empower you to be a better homeowner, which will make your house safer and your home life easier.

When's the best time to check your roof? Have you fallen behind with your home maintenance? How do you keep your electric bill from skyrocketing during the winter months? vipHomeLink can help. While other apps focus on the design and management of homes, vipHomeLink tailors home improvement and maintenance recommendations and notifications specifically to your home, and you can keep track of your progress with the Home Fitness Index. Get rid of your filing cabinet as the app digitally stores all your home documents and information, such as insurance policies, inspection reports, manuals, appliance details, dimensions, and etc.

It is perfect for both the first time-homeowner or someone whose home has been in the family for generations.
