HGTV Launches Free Design App “HGTV Folio”
Filled with beautiful photo galleries and detailed style guides curated by the experts at HGTV, the new HGTV Folio App allows fans to take design inspiration with them on the go. HGTV Folio, which is now available on the App StoreSM for free download on Apple iPad, also offers users the "Find Your Style" interactive quiz, a step-by-step guide to identify personal design styles. In addition, the app provides ways to organize and share favorite room photos; search by room, color or keyword to locate a desired style; as well as learn more about the room designs, patterns and colors in each space. And with new photos and galleries added regularly, the inspiration is endless.
"HGTV Folio offers fans a new way to immerse themselves in décor and design," said Vikki Neil, senior Vice president and general manager, digital, Scripps Networks Interactive. "The app helps users identify everything they love about a space and allows them to pinpoint their style, organize their favorite room photos and galleries and share their finds via Facebook and Twitter."
The app, which features rooms created by top HGTV designers Anthony Carino and John Colaneri (Cousins on Call), Jonathon Scott and Drew Scott (Property Brothers), David Bromstad (HGTV Star), Vern Yip (Urban Oasis) and Sabrina Soto (The High Low Project), also offers users a way to select and save their preferred design elements in any space. In addition, the app features a special photo gallery of rooms that showcase the beautiful paint colors by launch partner Sherwin-Williams.
To track favorite items and features, users also can tap a photo to save it to a personalized folder or select a liked item with a "Love This" or "Want This" tag for future reference. HGTV Folio includes interactive "hot spots," which offers product information about items featured in the photos, as well as a notes feature that allows users to notate thoughts on the featured products or rooms that stay with the photo.
Whether users want to find the perfect look for their next room remodel, learn new ways to incorporate a favorite color into a space, share favorite looks with friends or identify designs they love, HGTV Folio arms users with the tools they need to discover their decorating style and find design inspiration from HGTV's experts.
