smartphone: How to add your RealBird mobile website to your ActiveRain post - 05/03/11 06:02 PM
Well, that may sound like a confusing objective, that is, adding your mobile real estate website as an embedded widget in your ActiveRain post, but as of today and as a "by-product" of our weekend compatibility update, you can now do exactly that. In fact, it is a pretty cool "by-product" if you ask us. The compatibility update that we launched for the RealBird mobile real estate websites now renders the pages correctly on all major desktop browsers including Internet Explorer 7 and higher (besides all the major smartphones of course). It means that you can now freely embed your mobile website into web pages that (14 comments)

smartphone: QR code for your RealBird listings - 10/19/10 01:23 AM
We added QR code support to the RealBird single property websites over the weekend. QR codes are compact barcodes that can encode all different kinds of information. They can be read by scanners, mobile phones with camera and smartphones. In our implementation, the automatically generated QR codes encode your RealBird single property websites' Urls and after scanning them with an iPhone for example, consumers can get access to your listing information instantly. So why is this useful? You may want to use the QR codes of your listing information at places where you have limited space for sharing text and links and/or entering long Urls (17 comments)
