    "My brother wanted some help building his mini house project so he asked me. I did not really have any experience in this field but the iHandy Carpenter app has been a nice tool to have. It mainly offers levels and rulers though so it is pretty basic."

    "This is a good measuring tool for the digital age. Its accurate and easy to use. The best part of this app is most people always have their phone on them so you will never waste time looking for something like a tape measure every again. "

    "For the creative mindset of the professional architect or home designer on the go, this app provides a mobile tool for use anywhere, and anytime, conveniently from your phone. This tool is handy to have when a creative idea strikes, and you need to model that idea immediately, or for showing your idea to a client in real time, without having to wait to share the idea using more traditional time consuming methods."

    "Geo Measure is useful if you are building your house, but it's really something that is more useful to the land surveyor or the builder, not the homeowner. It's highly technical so not really one directed at homeowners. But it is a good app that works well for the most part."

    "The latest version of this App for iPhone has a lot of reported troubles and seems to be a step backwards. I also read some disturbing reviews of the company itself. Notwithstanding that, it's not really optimized for buildling you own house. It's aimed at real estate agents, and I would look for something else (not necessarily on my phone) and from someone else for managing a home building project."

    "My father came to me for help when he had the idea to build a house. He asked what I thought of the Color Pal app and whether or not we should use it. I took a look and it was pretty apparent that this app is mainly helpful in the design process but that's it."

    "This is a fairly standard 3-dimensional home plan designer. There are a number of apps like this on the market, both free and paid, and for many different devices. This one seems to have a very polished overall look to it, and a generally good featureset for this application. User reviews also make this seem to be one of the more popular choices on the iOS App Store."
