You Can Now Build a Multi-Million Dollar Home via Your iPad

HBThere are apps for real estate sales, apps for paint color, apps for arranging furniture, and apps for making the best use of natural light. But until now, there was no app for that most fundamental process of homesteading: creating a new one from scratch.

This means less time and fewer people and permits in your way, plus a more gratifying (literal) hands-on experience in the process.

During an e-mail interview earlier this month, Paolo Colombo, a partner at A++, relayed his excitement at receiving the brief for the app. The challenge, he said, was to create something both visually stimulating and user friendly. “There were so many ways to approach a project like this and so many possibilities to consider.”
