Moving to a new place can be exciting, invigorating… and extremely overwhelming. While you might be able to bribe friends into helping you at least load the truck, you probably can’t bribe them into packing your stuff or finding you a new place to live. Good thing there are apps for that. Yes, there are apps to help you find a new place, calculate your new mortgage, track your boxes and the stuff you’ve packed in them and anything else you might need to remember when moving from place to place.
Always trying to find your shoes for work and a bowl to have some breakfast in but can’t remember which boxes they’re packed in? Moving Planner for Android users and Moving Van for Apple users allows people to pack their stuff in boxes, photograph the contents, assigns and tracks box numbers with belongings inside. With general household items already on the program, you can drag items into each “box” on screen, minimizing the amount of items you’ll have to add in manually. This app for Android and Apple users keeps you ultra-organized in the chaos of all the boxes. The Apple program actually can even keep a tally of the weight and measurements of the boxes so you know just how big of a van you’ll need and how much it’ll cost to move.
