Moving Into The Technology Age

By
Real Estate Agent with Wainwright & Co. Realtors

It's a late Christmas gift to myself, but I FINALLY moved forward into the technology age.  My Droid was delivered yesterday.  I can't wait to sink my teeth into all the features it has.  Of course, my 2 girls think they got a new toy everytime it talks to them.

I could really use any feedback from fellow Droid users on how to use this as an effective tool in business.  I know about the e-mail and web capabilities, but are there any aps designed to help us realtors out?  Time is of the essense on getting rolling with it.  I think it's going to open up a world of possibilities when I'm showing or listing houses.

Thanks in advance for your feedback and tips.  Have a great day!

Just got one today and I will be checking to see what kinds of tips I can learn from responses on this blog.  I know there are real estate apps., etc.  Just looking for which ones are efficient and productive.  Thanks for the post.

I'm going to keep an eye on your posts.  I know it does a lot more than what I use it for.  I've played around with some of the different apps but still haven't quite got the full hang of it.  I mainly use it for a phone, camera and email... DJ

I love my Droid and there are so many apps - go to the market and I always check the "free" apps and you can find so many - good luck!

Hi Todd - I've taken some really 'Incredible' photos with my Droid, and I really like how easy it is to share them on Facebook or Flickr. Also love the Navigator GPS, it's a real timesaver.
