MOBILE APPS – WHAT BENEFIT ARE THEY?

I don’t know how I ended up with this topic because I am by no means an expert on Mobile Applications, but I’ll give it a go.

A mobile application (or mobile app) is a software application designed to run on smartphones, tablets and other mobile devices. They are available through application distribution platforms, which are typically operated by the owner of the mobile operating system. Some apps are free, while others have a price. Usually, they are downloaded from the platform to a target device, such as an iPhone, Blackberry, or Android phones.

With today’s craving for instant information by the mobile consumer mobile apps have been developed for almost anything you can think of. And if you can’t find an app for your specific need, there is probably someone somewhere working on its’ development.

There are literally thousands of mobile apps available, but the experts recommend you do your homework before you acquire any new apps, especially if there is a cost. You want to make sure it will do what you want it to do. I came across this blog with the top 50 apps broken down into 5 different categories – check it out !  http://www.telegraph.co.uk/technology/mobile-app-reviews/8319652/The-50-best-mobile-apps.html

If you are looking for real estate information I recommend you check out the Coldwell Banker mobile app. It will show you homes available for sale in the area surrounding where you are at any given moment. You can also do specific searches for homes that meet your needs. It provides you with all the information regarding a property including photos and REALTOR® contact information.

Another great app for real estate information is the REALTOR.ca app. Again it will provide you with all the information regarding listed properties all across Canada. These apps are free so use them to your advantage when searching for your next home.

Technology has changed the way we live, the way we do business, the way we do everything. All indications show that the mobile technology world will be growing at an astounding rate. If you are doing business in today’s world you need to make sure all your technology such as your website or your intranet site for employees is mobile friendly. If businesses don’t adapt to mobile technology they may be overlooked by today’s consumer.

I don’t know about you, but I hate change. A friend once told me, “technology is your friend, embrace it, and use it to your advantage”.

I’m learning something new everyday!
