Some Useful Business Apps For Your Mobile Phone Or Tablet PC

Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Realty 0575737

There's an app for that !!!

Mobility Applications

So many applications or mobile web sites out there these days, approximately 500,000 for Apple, 600,000 for Android, 60,000 for Blackberry (Research in Motion). A mobile web site is a web site asking for a URL that is optimized for the mobile platform whereas the APP is not a web site but runs directly off the mobile device.

Some useful apps or mobile web sites for you that may be of interest:   (Free) AroundMe allows you to quickly find out information about your surroundings, closest gas station, bank, hospital, hotel, movies, restaurants, supermarket, etc.

LogMeIn -  (Free) From your couch, on a train or in the air - get anytime, anywhere access to your PC or Mac

Dropbox -  (Free) Dropbox is a free service that lets you bring all your photos, docs, and videos anywhere. Any file you save to your Dropbox is accessible from all other computers, iPhone, iPad and even the Dropbox web site.

Evernote -  (Free) Take notes, capture photos, create to-do lists, record voice reminders which are all searchable across all devices. -  (Free) Search Realtor dot com web site from the mobile device, check houses for sale around the ones you are showing. Consumers already have this but most agents don't know about it

iTranslate -  (99 cents) The ultimate language translate tool. For your foreign clients, other language speaking partners both text and speech to text, text to speech translate. Helps you learn a new language too. Has THREE dialects settings for Spanish too.

Keynote -  ($9.99)  The most powerful PRESENTATION app for a mobile device. For making presentations on iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch, can move Powerpoint presentations as well into this format. It works with iCloud so your presentations can stay up to date on all your devices

Gary, thanks for mentioning the app in your round-up. I think one of the best features is Area Highlighter, which lets you draw on the screen to narrow down the area where you want to do your home search. Probably makes for some fun open house outings with clients.
