Houzz launches a new iPad app for home design fans

Aficionados of home design may already be familiar with the Houzz website, which offers resources for finding decorating ideas. While the site (like most any other) is accessible through the Safari browser on an iPad, Houzz has now released a free iPad app that gives tablet-optimized access to the site's features.

Those features include a library of more than 60,000 photos of various rooms provided by professional designers. Users can sign up for a free account, then browse by style, room type, or region. When users find something they like, they can save it to their own ideabook for future reference. So far users have created more than 130,000 ideabooks. Homeowners can tag items, share photos with friends, or find designers to work with. Professionals, including contractors, architects, and designers, can upload photos to create their own portfolios and find new clients.
