The app has been specifically designed for iPhone and iPad, but it can also be used on the iPod Touch, however, it will require an operating system of iOS 3.0 or later. The app costs $2.99 and updates usually only occur to fix minor bugs. The app has received a huge number of favorable reviews and it seems that the beautiful houses, rooms, and interiors found within the app are a great source of motivation for many DIYers.

This app covers every single room in the house and will give you some great ideas about how to redesign a boring bathroom, kitchen or living or dining area into an area that you will be incredibly proud of. The New York Times has also written a very complimentary review about Remodelista in the past. They have stated that where many other, possibly better known, home and interior design magazines and websites seem to be lacking in inspiration, Remodelista is simply going from strength to strength. The NY Times also said that “Remodelista is earning a reputation as a sourcebook for interior design”.
