No matter where you live, whether it’s a small apartment or a luxuriously appointed McMansion, you’re going to be faced with dealing with stuff. Y’know, the kind of things that you forget about until it’s too late. Maintenance schedules, repair manuals, an inventory of your gadgets for insurance purposes, even product receipts to keep track of warranties. It’s all a necessary part of life, but up till now this sort of stuff has been really hard to manage unless you’re some kind of detail freak.
Now there’s a new service which looks like it could take a lot of the headache out of the whole process. HomeZada is a mobile app and online data store which you can use to keep track of all the important things relating to your home. You can schedule in maintenance tasks like cleaning gutters etc, photograph and store details of your home inventory (when exactly did you buy that flat screen TV, is it still under guarantee?) and archive important property documents like leases.
There’s even Home Spending function, which lets you track your finances and keep track of your total equipment value, so you can budget better and stay on top of your outgoings. There’s also a mobile phone version for iPhone and Android, which you can use to photograph your stuff, and keep track of a to-do list so you don’t forget to pay the rent or pool cleaner. The basic version of the application is free, but for a small monthly fee you can also take advantage of an online calendar, email reminders, a shopping research tool and multi-home management (you 1%er you).
It’s a pretty cool app, no doubt, but if you want something simpler, you might want to check out the free MyHome Lite Android app which also gives you photographic inventory control over your things.
