Apps aren’t just about entertainment and chasing Pokemon. They can also help you stay sane and organized during a move! Here are seven apps that will do just that:
Well, we kind of have to mention our own app! 😉 The Moved app serves as a central hub for all things moving. First and foremost, you’ll be connected with your own personal moving assistant who helps throughout the entire process. Use the Moved app and your personal assistant to help with pretty much anything you can think of related to your move. Book a mover, update your address, sell your couch, get packing materials, find a storage unit, insurance quotes… and much more!
Sortly claims to be “the ultimate organizer app”, and it certainly goes a long way to deliver on that promise. Using Sortly, you can create a digital inventory of everything you own, organized with folders, photos, notes, tags, 15-sec videos and printable QR labels. Keeping track of everything you own in this way can serve as an invaluable resource during the hectic craziness of a move.
MagicPlan lets you create digital floor plans of your home with your iPhone or iPad camera. Using your phones camera, you look around the room, and mark where the corners are. The app then creates a detailed floor plan for you! This app also connects with the Floorplanner website. Using the two services together, you can plan your new home’s furniture layout quickly and easily, in beautifully rendered 2D and 3D designs.
Need help with interior design? Houzz is your spot to get new design ideas, find professionals, and shop for your home. You can do it yourself or hire a pro to make your new home look amazing.
Evernote keeps all your notes (whether a to-do list, photo, snippet of text, or a full document) together in one place, easily synced across all your devices. Available on all Android and iOS devices, as well as Mac and PC laptops and tablets.
This app helps you keep your things organized. Take photos of your things, assign a group of them a QR code, then print that QR code and slap it on the box. Think of it as high-tech labelling! When it’s time to unpack, you can scan the QR code with your phone and know exactly what’s inside.
One of the most popular planning apps in the world, Wunderlist will help you stay organized and on top of the long list of various tasks required for a successful move. You can keep all your to-do lists in here, organized by folder and hashtag. Set due dates and reminders so you don’t forget anything, and share to-do lists with others. You can even assign tasks and lists to others. Like Evernote, Wunderlist is available on pretty much any internet-accessible device.
