HGTV launches design portfolio app, HGTV Folio

Posted on Tuesday, June 25, 2013.

Filled with photo galleries and detailed style guides curated by the experts at HGTV, the HGTV Folio App allows design enthusiasts to find design inspiration on the go.

“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.”

Users can select and save images of rooms by Anthony Carino and John Colaneri of Cousins on Call; Jonathon Scott and Drew Scott of Property Brothers; David Bromstad of HGTV Star; Vern Yip of Urban Oasis; and Sabrina Soto of The High Low Project.

Users may 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. To track favorite items and features, users 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.

Interactive “hot spots” offer 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.
