Amy’s App of the Week- Splash ID- April 30, 2012

Do you have the disease I have? It’s called CRS??? Can’t Remember Stuff disease!!! I can’t remember what I wore yesterday much less all the passwords, frequent flyer mileage and kids school ID stuff! Plus the older I get, the worse it is!!!! So Splash ID to the rescue! One password to open it up and then I can store login’s & passwords inside of it. It is also cloud based, so when I input something on my desktop it automatically syncs to the app on my Iphone and Ipad.

I have a lot of people question me on how secure it is. My answer, security comfort is different for everyone. I prefer it here b/c I have lost my journal notebooks with my passwords in it before (not very secure for me)-so basically do what you feel comfortable with in the long run!

Amy’s App of the Week -April 23, 2012- Evernote

evernote

Evernote is a cloud based note taking system that I use on a regular basis. So if I take notes on evernote.com on my laptop, then if I want to reference that note later and I just have my Ipad with me- no problem at all. All I have do is open the Evernote App on my Ipad, search for the note & voila’ it is there. It is like magic! Evernote function allows me to type my notes, take a photo or record audio inside ONE note- How awesome is this???

I bet you are sitting there saying, “Hmmmmmm, Amy so how would I use it in Real estate?” or maybe you are saying “So what?”

Here are some ideas I have used to maybe ignite your brain neurons-
1)If you are in a CE class or a real estate technology class, use evernote to take notes on your Ipad. Then if you want to record what the speaker is saying or take a photo of the slide that is on the screen, you can do it all inside that note.
2) Or you can use it when you are out showing to take notes on the property that you are showing. Then at the end of the day, you can copy your text and use it for your feedback.
OR you can give an extra Ipad to your clients to let them take notes on it while they are the viewing the properties, then at the end of the day you can email the notes to them for their review.

There are other uses, like typing your blog on it…But start playing with it because I bet you will love the note taking capabilties of Evernote.

Amy’s App of the Week – April 16, 2012 – Foursquare

This app is a check in app much like Facebook Places. So if I am at Walgreens, then I check in on Foursquare app. I can choose at that time to push it to my Facebook and Twitter accounts as well or just to my Foursquare friends. Foursquare is open to the public, so whatever I post on there can be seen by anyone on Foursquare. Practice safety!! I use it as a marketing tool on listiings, get coupons on there from participating retailers like Bath and Body Works, Victoria’s Secret, Walgreens, Payless, & Chili’s, plus I use it as a way to see where my friends are when I am at real estate conferences. It is also a prospecting tool! Try it out! But remember, Foursquare limits you to 1000 friends!
