I originally designed iBlueprint to give homeowners and real estate agents the ability to attach a floor plan to their online real estate listings. I came up with the idea during an online housing search when I couldn't get a good grasp of the room-to-room flow. I thought there had to be a better way to convey the floor plan of a home with something more than just pictures. There wasn't, so Local Slacks built one. 134,000 people can't be wrong, iBlueprint is the best way to rapidly generate floor plans.
I was in Hawaii on my way to Japan for 6 months when I had the idea for Pixelate. I needed to send a picture but some sensitive documents were visible. I needed a quick way to permanently obscure the documents while keeping the rest of the photo in tact. There were a couple of apps that half-accomplished this but nothing that allowed for the pixel size to vary. We spent 2 months working with code writers in India to get the algorithm right, and delivered the best Pixelate app in the app store.
I had set out to replace my carpet with wood floors and was taking measurements when I realized calculating the square footage of an oddly shaped room sucked. Especially when using the standard feet-inches measurements common on standard tape measures. There was a ton of unit conversion and, therefore, room for error. We came up with the solution. PRO Area Calculator converts between units for you in the background while calculating the area of the most common shapes.
