We all need a little home help every now and then. And sometimes we want it from the convenience of our own pocket.
Thanks to BrightNest — a free site that provides customized tips and tools to help homeowners save money, get organized and keep their homes in great shape — that little dream is now a reality. The website now has a free iPhone app, which offers basic maintenance advice to cleaning tricks to home design ideas.
And if you think BrightNest is a one-size-fits-all site, think again. The app allows users to choose the most appropriate tips for their home and build a schedule. BrightNest will also send reminders when it’s time to take on a task.
Here’s how it works: When you download the app, it prompts you to customize it based on the user’s needs and his home’s qualities. Then BrightNest will offer suggestions based on those customizations, including instructions and reminders. In other words, “We provide all the ingredients you need for a healthy home!”
