HomeDiary is the most robust and fun way to Dream, Manage and Do more with your home through our free homeowner management platform. Log details about home improvements and maintenance activities and tag them to a space with Timeline. Snap a photo of each room for Inventory purposes to quickly document what’s in your house for insurance purposes. Save an Idea while shopping and tag it to a space. Through our companion web-based experience, use our robust 3D Space planner to draw a floor plan of a room or your whole house quickly and easily. Use it to design, place furniture, paint walls, change flooring or even add or remove walls, then with the push of a button, you can view it in 3D on any device, plus have access to any room’s dimensions where ever you go.

Your Home. Your Data. HomeDiary is private and secure, using 256-bit encryption and everything you do is private by default. You own the data of what’s in your home and you control how it’s shared. As you add more data, you create a digital record of the home and any home specific data (floor plans, appliance details, home repairs, home pros) can be passed to future owners, if applicable.

The app includes these great features:

Quick Input - use the app to document the Who Did What, Where, When and for How much. Snap a photo of a receipt, the paint can color, the furnace filter size or the repair bill for the garage door spring, or whatever... and log it for warranty, insurance or improvement purposes. Attach manuals, instructions or anything you want.

Instant Search - instantly find anything your log with our app-wide search feature.

Timeline - The visual log of the things you do, whether it is save an idea, log an inventory item, document a repair or set a reminder. Everything you log is sync’d to a secure database and is accessible via any iOS device, a personal computer, either through the iOS app (iPhone and IPad) or our mobile responsive website experience.

3D Spaces - Use our full-featured 2D/3D space planner to create a floor plan using your computer or iPad and visualize it on your iPhone. The 3D Spaces tool is the ultimate “What If” tool. Ever wonder what an open concept might look like for your home, or how hard wood floors might look in your office. Do virtual remodeling before physical work. It's like the floor plan tool you see on those home improvement shows on TV, but for your home. You can build a floor plan in as little as 5 to 10 minutes, and even trace over a source file (appraiser’s sketch, marketing brochure, architectural plans, etc). .

Inventory - A picture is worth a thousand words. In this case, a picture can save you in case of disaster. About 75% of people have no documentation of what is in their home for insurance purposes, so what happens if there is a wildfire, flood, tornado, or other disaster? Don’t get caught being unprepared for our most valued asset, as the insurance claim process can be a major hassle if you have no documentation. Take 10 minutes to just snap a few photos of each room and you have a baseline of what’s in your home to build a more detailed list in case of disaster.

Ideas - Use our Ideas app to save things to your own Pinterest-like idea board, all tied to a space. Snap a photo of the cool couch, a rug or even homes you see, and save it to a space. On our companion web experience you can even use our web clipper to save images and page links.

Reminders - Need help remembering to change your furnace filters for optimal operation, replacing your refrigerator’s water filter, or changing the batteries in the smoke detectors? These are just a few of the reminders the app can help you stay on top of for your home.

Companion website experience. We’re not just an app, we are complete cloud service too. So you can quickly add items via your iPhone or iPad and do more detailed space planning using any computer with your same login credentials at www.homediary.com.

Great concept but needs a lot of work

I’ve been using HomeDiary for about 2 years to track my home maintenance history. It’s much easier to use the website rather than the app itself. Lots of bugs… photos that show up on the website version won’t load at all on the app version. Scrolling through the timeline is laggy and unresponsive at time. Notes are only visible on a tiny window when you click/press “edit” on the timeline. You’re unable to label photos or organize them, and PDF files for contractor receipts, invoices, etc. are not visible unless you download them.

There’s only a few home maintenance tracking apps out now, and most of them aren’t great. This is the only tracking app that I like, but it has a lot of potential to be better. Wouldn’t mind paying a reasonable subscription fee to get premium, up-to-date service too.

Great idea, but missing essential functionality...

I love the idea of this app, but it does not allow the addition of recurring events. So if I want to remind myself to change my furnace filters every three months, I need to add it 4x per year. That was a show stopper for me! Huge oversight, so much that I lost respect for the app itself. I’ll check back when they add this essential functionality...

Developer Response ,

We've since added the ability to create several kinds of recurring reminders. Please check back and thanks for leaving feedback!

I moved out of state, and bought a fixer upper condo a few months ago. I have been using homediary to document all of the changes and update I’ve been making.
It so fun and puts everything in one place, I’ve never felt so organized!

I’ve been documenting dates, receipts, the people that did the work, and their contact info. Not to mention my home inspection, warrantee’s and other documents!

I would recommend this app to any homeowner! Two thumbs up!!
