Amy’s App of the Week – Feb 20, 2012

This app rocks for anybody needing to take a payment by credit card and that person does not have a PayPal account.  Now, I did get the Squareup.com adapter to plug into

my Iphone or Ipad, until a friend told me I don’t need the adapter to still take credit card payments. I set up the account to just be for my ASH realty business so I would not be

accused of breaking Artilcle 8 of COE so I won’t be comingling funds.

Now, I am a mobile agent but that does not mean that I want to run all over the place to pick up checks or application fees. It means, I use technology to make myself more efficient.  One way I recently

used this app is to take a credit application fees from a prospective tenant. It was quick simple and worth the little bit of fee they charge versus the alternative of racing around to meet the other agent to pick up cashiers check and then depositing them at my bank.  So in my mobile world, it’s hip to be SQUARE.

Amy’s App of the Week Feb 13, 2012

Smartr Contacts XobniSmartr Contacts

Cool app  built by Xobni (which I use heavily as an add-in to my Outlook) that allows me to see my contacts face, their social networks, our exchanges as well as ranking the relevance of importance to me. I also like that it automatically scours my Calendar, email and my social networks for people I interact with and brings them into my contacts.

You must have Xobni for Gmail, Yahoo or Outlook to be able to use this app.

I have been playing with this quite a bit so it is now on my main screen!

Amy’s App of the Week – Jot Not Pro

This is one of my all-time go to Apps for about 2 years now when I need to fax/email a hard copy and I have only my Iphone with me.  I have tried other scanner programs like Phototopdf, Pocket Scanner, or Scanner Pro but I still prefer JotNotPro.  The key to any App, is find the one you like!

How I use the app….I can take pictures of our Texas lease application for tenants (which is 4 pages each) through the JotNot Pro app and then it will save all 4 pages into one PDF.  I can then just save it in my phone or email or fax out.  In order to fax now from the device, you have to have fax credits, so I have stopped using that part. Really for lack of need!

Happy Scanning!
