Have You Used The Activerain App Lately?

Real Estate Agent with (512) 786-8300

There have been some nice changes at Activerain lately. My favorite might be the much improved Activerain app. The old app left a little bit to be desired. One could read posts, check their account and perform a few other tasks. But the new and improved version is worth some applause. After reading Cheryl Ritchies post about the IPad advances, I figure the same functions, might now apply to the IPhone. Now, we can comment on posts, email fellow Activerainers, and even write a blog post, without performing the technological gymnastics that were previously required. Now adding a picture may be a challenge. And other features like adjusting font may not happen yet. But jotting a quick post or commenting on others is as simple as opening an app. Now, we have the option of punching out a post while standing in line at the DMV. This is my virgin IPhone post. Try yours. As for me, I have to go over to the App Store and give the AR app a five star rating.

I'm still trying to figure out how to change fonts without html code?? How do you do that? And someday I just might have to get one of those cell phone gizmos.

Yvonne- It is very convenient

Bill- I think we are headed towards and Apple and Android mostly smartphone world. Blackberry has big numbers still, but the other guys have figured out this app thing bigtime

Yea Doug, it wasn't exactly my favorite app

Kristin- the worst part is when I get together with Iphone people. We look quite ridiculous comparing apps

Check it out Paula, good stuff

Leah- It will make standing in line, much more tolerable

Marilyn-ha...well the old app should upgrade, or at least it must have for me

Deborah- I've got to get one too

Jim- It's a real cool app, you'll like it

Bob and Bonnie- I'm with you on the fonts...you would think I would have learned that in a year and a half.

I have the Motorola Droid.  Have been able to do this because they have flash.  I know that has been a problem for the iPad users.  No more.

Bummer...I know this is an older post, but hoping someone can help me find the app. I now have an iPad and the only AR I see belongs to the AR Community Manager. Thanks!
