IPhone App RoomHints Review

New information technology has always amazed us in the last few years. It has really made our lives better and more comfortable. We have become more attached to our smartphones, tablets and computer more than ever before, for the simple reason that these devices and their software can provide us with many services. In addition, designers of smartphones applications always come up with new ideas for all our daily life needs. The example of the iPhone application called RoomHints is making a difference in the world of smartphone applications. It has been recently launched in beta version but it gained more popularity due to its importance. The official launching of RoomHints will be during the end of October according to the company.

It is very important to mention that RoomHints application, co-founded and designed by Tiffany Willson, was recently rated by Consumer Reports as the number one application for home-design shopping. It has also been featured in several new media outlets and websites such as Wakefield, Fox News, American Express, Shop Smart and others. In fact, the interest in home design and interior furniture has increased because of modernity and fast social changes. People are looking for simple but convenient design for their homes. However, they may get frustrated and could not choose the most attractive design by themselves.

The main purpose behind RoomHints application is to provide help in such cases. It is a very effective solution for those who look for a new piece of furniture for their rooms or lounges or those who would renew their private home spaces. Tiffany, a graduated interior designer, was so conscious that a lot of demand for room hints would cause her too much energy and time. Each time a friend asked her for a suggestion, she had to do things physically; that would be like a traditional way for a new modern graduated interior designer.

Then the idea of RoomHints application came as a result of deep thinking about how it should work. Through three simple steps, the user of the application RoomHints can get enough feedback that will inspire him/her to have the best home decoration. First, the user should tell RoomHints designer about what s/he is looking for. Second, s/he can have a photo of the space be it a room or a lounge for example. This photo will help designers to see how the space could be refurnished. Then as a last step, the user will find important hints that work exactly as s/he wishes.

It is indeed an amazing application with an original idea. Professionals and experts in interior design could have been never reached for opinions and suggestions more than today with this new application.
