The Internet is a great, yet sometimes unreliable place to find answers, which is where the Fountain app launched at SXSW should be of particular interest to homeowners. Whether you've got a leaky faucet or have decided to tackle a home renovation project on your own, the app connects you with expert interior designers, architects, gardeners, carpenters, plumbers or appliance repair specialists.
Since it's not always easy to communicate an issue without images, the app makes it easy to take a photo and draw on it to indicate specific issues. To ensure that your queries are answered quickly, the app sends out your question to up to 20 experts at once. On average, the wait time for a response is only about two minutes, which saves you a lot of Googling for the best solution.
