As the world increasingly moves to smart phones and tablets, apps have become standard tools for engaging customers.

They are also highly practical methods for testing and measurement on-the-go. Woodworkers use them to snap photos of finishes for color and species matching, or to remotely tap into business operating systems.

Apps are also a great tool for outreach to end consumers of cabinetry and furniture, even when customers are buying through third parties. From hardwood selectors to the Stanley level, here is a selection of apps we love. Find them at the Google Play and iTunes store.
