Who doesn’t need a handyman around the house?

Handy Man DIY helps handle home projects: This app will keep track of room measurements, to-do list, shopping list and costs, so when you head to store you’ll have it all on your phone.

You have to input prices, but that’s a good way to stay on budget. And you can check off items as you go.

It offers written and video tutorials for some projects, including shopping lists, so newbies won’t be caught, say, under a sink without pliers.

Handy Man DIY is available on Itunes for $1.99.
