ColorSnap: Remember those websites and games that used to show you what you would look like when different hairstyles? Well this app shows what your room will look like with a different paint job. "Capture color inspiration whenever—and wherever—it strikes. With ColorSnap®Visualizer from Sherwin-Williams, you have the power to take real-world colors and turn them into paint-color swatches—all on your smartphone." You can also upload a picture and the app will pick up on color schemes so you can match your living room to the exact colors of that scenic beach picture.

This is the super project manager that you're going to need before you start any renovations. With preinstalled templates, it's simple to organize home projects, manage budgeting and timelines.
