If you've ever been one to tinker, build, or indulge in DIY projects, you've probably visited Instructables at one point or another. It's a great resource for those looking for specific how-tos, or just wanting something to do on a rainy day. Illustrated instructions are provided by the site's users, and can be discussed, favorited, or even downloaded.

Today, Autodesk (purveyors of other excellent apps like Pixlr Express) brought the crowd-sourced do-it-yourself spirit of Instructables to Android in an official app. The app allows for just about all the functionality of the website, in a nice holo-inspired package (the #EEBA26 looks stellar, doesn't it?).

Users can favorite, share, or discuss projects, follow their creators, or vote for a project that's entered in a contest all in two clicks, and the app has a handy sliding panel full of discovery features. Submitting a project is also exceedingly easy, with a first-run primer that walks you through the process of simply attaching photos and entering text.

Oh, and the app looks pretty nice on tablets as well.

Whether you're already a fan of Instructables, or just want a great way to find a new project to work on this weekend, Autodesk's latest app is definitely worth a look. Just hit the widget below.

The app was not found in the store. :-(
