SmartPhone Property Manager (Landlord) #4 * FLASHLIGHT App is a MUST!

Property Manager with Gibson Management Group, Ltd.

I used the flashlight app on my first smartyphone (3 phones ago) within the first week....I must have learned to download it because I do not think it came loaded on the phone; however, I used it to show the basement of a 3-story townhouse with the basement bulb had burned out.


I have also advised residents how to find their keys when they dropped them outside of their rental unit in the dark....HELLO!  I’m not driving 20 minutes to get you into your home so you can turn on your exterior lights and find the keys you dropped....Flashlight app was my first choice since her car headlights would not reach into the area where she dropped her keys.

...all I’m saying is that having this app on my smartyphone has saved me time, $$$ and gas.

We use it to find the locks on homes where the bulb burned out, Wallace. So much more impressive than fumbling around on the door.

I use this app for work when I need light in a tight area or when my flashlight tanks Wallace. It helps in finding my keys too!  :)

Wallace, this may be my most frequently used app. I use the camera and scanner software but I would bet that I use the flashlight app at least once a day every day.

Wallace, thought it a useless app until I needed it! Then, I changed my mind! Enjoy your day!

Amen Wallace !


You are forever needing light somewhere, and don't always remember to put your actual light in a pocket...  But rarely forget the phone !
