The Home Depot

Search for an item, check to see whether it’s in stock,rnand add it to your list or to your cart. The app is free and doesn’t containrnany ads. It is, after all, an ad in and of itself.
The app isn’t free (it’ll set yournback a whopping $2.99 USD), but is well worth the price of admission. Note thatrnalthough the length measurement tool is quite simple to use, measuring distancerndoes take some time to understand (it’s based on AR tech and trigonometricrnfunctions).
