I’ve recently been made aware of a brand new app called mySurface. You know how I LOVE my iPhone. Apps are the best part about it. I thought it would be fun to make a list of my favorite DIY apps. Plus I have an awesome giveaway for you too! So, here are some fun free DIY apps in no particular order.


Thinking of remodeling or in the middle of one? Then this app is for you. It’s so cool, I’m seriously thinking about remodeling after playing with this!  mySurface has a huge amount of Corian and Zodiaq surface colors and textures you can browse by color. Just scroll through the color choices, save your favorites and call for samples in a few easy steps. So much easier than spending hours at the store. There is also a nice photo gallery for getting ideas. The hardest part will be deciding which surface to choose!


Milog Lite

Milog Lite is a great app for tracking car mileage for work. I am so much better at using this than writing my miles on paper.


BigOven has tons of recipes and photos! Great for getting dinner ideas and handy for the grocery store when you forget what ingredients you need for something.

FilterFX for Free

Want to make your photo sepia toned before you share it on Twitter or Facebook?  FilterFX has all kinds of fun photo editing filters. Like this, then you’ll love Crop for Free, another great photo app!


i Make Ups

i Make Ups is a totally fun app that has quick DIY hair and make-up video tips. I love the hair videos since I never know what to do with mine!

iHandy Level

iHandy Level is a great tool for when you need to hang frames!
