Top smart-phone apps for AEs

DataViz “Documents to Go.” DataViz lets you create and edit Word and Excel files and PowerPoint presentations, and view PDF documents.

NAR Express. Real estate news, research, opinions, events, and calls for action from the NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS®.

Scan2PDF Mobile. Document scanning using your phone’s camera to convert one or more pages into a PDF. Like having a document scanner/photocopier/fax machine in your pocket!

Bump. Quickly exchange contact information without fumbling with cell phone keypads. Bump enables two users to swap info simply by tapping their phones together.

TripIt. Not only track and share your travel plans with staff and leadership and check for flight delays, but also see which members or colleagues are traveling to the same city at the same time.

Evernote. Snap a photo, take a screenshot, type in text, or speak your note to capture information on the go. Evernote helps you organize and find it by making all of the information in your photos or notes searchable. For example, if you take a photo of a book as a reminder that you want to buy it later, Evernote will make all of the text on the book cover searchable. It’s pretty neat to see it in action.

Fring. Receive IMs and updates from AIM, Yahoo, Google Talk, MSN Messenger, ICQ, Skype, Twitter, and Facebook users all through one program called Fring. Fring consolidates all of your messenger clients into one mobile app so you can chat with multiple people on multiple programs in one place.

NAR Action Center. Access top political stories from the REALTOR® Action Center, Washington Report, and online dynamic reports to track your state and local REALTOR® Party engagement and call for action participation.

TextPlus, GroupMe. Conference via text message with these apps, which enable users to text up to 20 people at once. It’s a fast and cheap way to communicate with your staff and directors.

WaveSecure. In the event that your smart phone is lost or stolen, this app enables you to remotely lock your phone, track the SIM card, and back up data.
