1. Zite – this is a great app that gives you daily updates on just about whatever you can think of. If you have used Flipboard (Flipboard recently bought Zite), then you know how cool apps like this can be. They are essentially digital newspapers that can be tailored to your liking. The best part is you can share directly to any social media platform, which I do daily, to increase SEO and my social media presence.
2. IFTTT – IF This Then That – This is one of those apps that at first seems a bit overwhelming, but if you really sit down and think about how to utilize it, it’s extremely powerful. For those of you familiar with computer programing, it’s essentially an “if then” statement for your phone apps to work together. For those of you not familiar, you create recipes for your phone that if an action happens, then do another action. It’s more of a personal app then a Real Estate app, but a few things I use it for: 1. When I get to the office, turn my phones WiFi on 2. When I leave my house, turn my Nest (thermostat) temperature down 3. When its going to rain outside, send me a text 4. Send my Facebook statuses automatically to Twitter 5. Congratulate my LinkedIn Contacts automatically, for their new jobs and work anniversaries. There are thousands of “recipes” you can create, check it out! And, let me know your favorite recipes by posting in the comment section here or on the Facebook page => HERE
3. Camcard – this is probably my favorite one for Realtors. It takes a picture of a business card and adds the details into your contacts, automatically. Very useful at/after conferences! Makes it easy to put all your new contacts into groups on Gmail.
