I LOVE Zumocast
I used a new application today and fell in love…immediately.
I have now been 48 hours without my Blackberry, having said goodbye on Wednesday. I am now the proud owner of a Droid3 which I am still getting used to.
Cell phones are sooo passé.
I used Zumocast (by Motorola) today for the first time at a listing I have to access some old photos from the property from my laptop at home to show my client – we were doing some staging of the furniture that had been removed some time ago but was now back.
For those of you already familiar with Zumocast, feel free to chime in, and continue to shake your head in disbelief that some folks don’t know about this. I won’t be insulted.
If you have never used Zumocast, or even heard of it, it’s pretty simple.
Set up your profile/account on your phone
Download Zumocast onto your PC/Laptop
Once you have acknowledged you have downloaded Zumocast you are ready to go.
You simply open up Zumocast on your phone wherever you are, tell it what to access (My Documents or your Desktop), and presto you have access to all of your files – pdfs, word docs, videos, photos, etc. I have 3G so the photos and videos take a little time to upload but I was pretty impressed.
What’s cool is you can stream your music and vids from your laptop to your mobile device without having to upload them. I’m hooked! "My documents" in my pocket.
Perhaps you know of other similar applications that folks here could take advantage of in addition to Zumocast. Of course you can always access Google Docs as one other option.
I can see all sorts of uses for this when I am out with clients to quickly pull up a file, or meeting with prospective sellers, especially if I don’t want to lug around my laptop.
