My Addiction – Apps- The lifesavers of my life

Here are the apps that I ask clients to download as well as the ones I use constantly on a daily basis. I know I left some out, but you hopefully will get a feel for some of them. They range from Dropbox, Evernote, to schedule text messages to go out. Happy “Apping” !!!

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!

Amy’s App of the Week – March 26, 2012- Onlive Desktop

I had played with this app and stopped using b/c of the slow connectivity, but recently went back to it because a dear friend of mine, Tim Kinzler reminded me to try it again. This app for the Ipad only allows me to get Internet Explorer as well as edit Microsoft documents.  This is a HUGE deal for the Real Estate agents like myself that has an MLS that is flash based so it is not accessible on the Ipad.  Since so many of us are on the go with our clients, I can go to the Onlive Desktop ($4.99.month) and access Tempo (MLS) right from my Ipad…. It was wonderfully yesterday when I was sitting at Starbuckswith an elderly couple looking to buy a home in The Woodlands and I just pulled it up on my Ipad for them to view.  Con- sometimes connectivity is slow or won’t connect.

Amy’s App of the Week- IannotatePDF- March 19, 2012

I absolutely freaking love this App- it has saved my bacon a lot in my personal life and business life! I can fill out .pdf forms on the fly, sign on the screen, highlight text, add photo annotation, & rotate the .pdf. I can also remove pages from the .pdf and then email it out to my clients!!!  This app rocks!!!  (Only for Ipads)
