I admit it...I LOVE my iPhone!  It is amazing what you can do with some of the apps that are out there for business and pleasure.    Here are a few of my favorites....what's yours?


  1. Mobile MLS
  2. Real Estate Calculator (Alliance)
  3. Realtor.com
  4. Zillow
  5. Milog (great mileage and expense log)
  6. Expensify (another great expense log, you can even take photos of receipts and store them on this site)
  7. Maps (comes with the phone but is great when you are stuck in traffic)
  8. Hazel Mail (Take photos of clients new home, send it to Hazel Mail who in turn sends a personalized post card of the photo to your clients)
  9. Facebook
  10. HootSuite
  11. TwitPic
  12. Quick Voice Pro (great for quick voice messages on the go. Record then you can send them to your email or email the recording as text)


  1. Pandora (by far the best music station yet...you input favorite artists and it creates stations for you from your artists and artists like them)
  2. Last.fm (an alternative to Pandora)
  3. Shazam (amazing app...hear a song you like on the radio and want to know who it is?  Push a button and Shazam will analyze the song and give you the results with artists name and song name)
  4. Itunes


  1. Ocarina or uFlute (blow into your iPhone and it plays like a flute!!) 
  2. MiniPiano
  3. TouchXylophone
  4. DigiLite (finger drums)
  5. iCongas
  6. Pocket Guitar


  1. GeoQpons (great site that tracks your location and gives you a list of coupons available for stores, restaurants, etc.  I have saved tons of money with this.  You just show the clerk your phone and they use the coupon code for savings!)
  2. Red Laser or ShopSavvy (bar code readers that tell you if you can find the product nearby at a lower price)
  3. Starbucks (need I say more?)
  4. Jamba Juick locater
  5. Around Me (tells you what is around you by category..great for when you need a gas station, restaurant, etc)
  6. Farmers Market Finder

These are my favorites, but definitely not all of the apps that are on my phone. 

What are your favorites apps and why?

I simply adore my DROID. However, I have learned that not all iPhone apps have a Droid version. Yet, I'm going to use your list as a shopping guide and see what I can find.
