2012 Best Apps for Android and iPhone

For Christmas, I opened the Samsung Galaxy2 and am thrilled.  So this morning, I came to the most trusted resource I have for all things real estate - ActiveRain, of course.

I came searching for apps to consider.  While I have a Smart Phone, I have not utilized apps enough in the past - because they are just too small for me to use on my phone (despite having one of the largest screens available on the Motorola Razor Max).

So, here is one of the best places I have found to look at the useful apps that will best serve me in my real estate business.

 

Perhaps you can add your own commentary on any of these apps or make your own recommendations - I know I'd appreciate all the input I can get, and I am sure many others will as well.

If you have a new toy too, then perhaps this just may help you as well...enjoy

I just read somewhere that Christmas Day blew the records off of new devices being activated  and Apps being downloaded.

I have now used several of these and am finding them useful with my new Samsung Galaxy2
