Apartments for Rent by Apartment Guide

Apartment Guide App is Best!

apartment_guide-iPad-iPhone

Recently I had to search for an apartment in another state for an upcoming relocation. My search started on the web at various popular apartment search sites. However, as I began to narrow down my search and plan a trip to the area I wanted to have an App. Sadly the site that I was using on my computer had an app that wasn’t great at all. This caused me to download a few different apps and try them out and hands down the Apartment Guide App stood head and shoulders above the rest. This app seemed to have all that I was looking for in a nice UI (user interface). I liked being able to see photos of the various properties (a must and a given) and see floor plans right in the app. It has a very good search and filtering feature so that you can narrow down your search for the listings that have exactly what you’re looking for. Once you find a property you like you can easily save it as a favorite and quickly get back to it. You can check available via the built-in email feature. You can call and schedule an appointment right from the app and get directions. The “compare” feature lets you see two saved properties side-by-side. The app will also show you any deals listed in the area you’re searching. If you sign in with a free account then your saved properties will be on your iPhone, iPad and on the web on your computer.

This app made it super easy for me to find exactly what I was looking for and to quickly eliminate the others. I booked all the appointments right from the app. If you’re looking to make a move I highly recommend that you start your search with this app. It’s a Universal App for iPad, iPhone and iPod touch and it’s free.

Waze Social GPS, Maps & Traffic

Waze Social GPS, Maps & Traffic

waze-iPhone5s I’ve been using various GPS apps on my iPhone since the very first ones appeared for the iPhone 3G. While Navigon North America is still my goto app for all my regular travel, I’m really digging the Waze Social GPS app. Most of the time when I travel in other states I’m not renting a car. Therefore I rely on taxis and Uber. I noticed more and more Uber drivers using Waze to route them through busy metropolitan areas. Unlike the other GPS apps out there such as Apple’s built-in Maps App, Google Maps, Tom Tom, Navigon, etc. Waze combines a GPS turn-by-turn App with a social community aspect. In other words drivers (hopefully passengers) report LIVE on what’s going on during their commutes. For example, even with the built-in Traffic alerts in Navigon, there have been times I’ve been in bumper to bumper traffic because an accident just happened and hadn’t made its way into the traffic reporting feature in my Navigon App. With Waze the accident is reported by people that are experiencing the traffic slow down immediately. This will translate into Waze routing you around the traffic more effectively because the app is getting the information about congestion quicker. People can also report things like speed traps, red light cameras, etc. and Waze will give you audible alerts to these monitoring devices as you approach them on your route. Waze-iPhone5s-carstopped I decided to try it from the backseat of my Uberx ride to the airport in Houston. It was a fairly clear day for traffic as it was a Saturday morning. However, it alerted me to a car on the side of the road and although I couldn’t see it yet it was giving me the distance countdown as I got closer to it.

Sure enough there was a car on the should with the hazzards flashing exactly where it said it would be and had it not been there anymore I could have reported that it was gone. Very cool!

Another cool features is that you can share not only your route and ETA with a friend/colleague but the custom link you send from the app will also track your progress.

Again I don’t encourage anyone to interact and make reports while behind the wheel. We have enough distractions as it is. However, if you have a passenger or you are the passenger you can be the navigator helping not only your driver but the rest of the drivers around you. Waze is a FREE download and no signup is required unless you want to report on things. As you report more things you get points/levels. My only wish is that the app would broadcast via the bluetooth in my car. Either it’s not supported or simply not working with my car as my other apps such as Navigon do broadcast through my car’s speakers. You can get it here from the iTunes.

Adobe Creative Cloud

Creative Cloud App for iOS

CreativeCloud_iphone_ipad

Now that Creative Cloud has added the long awaited Collaboration feature (folder sharing) it was time to bring out the Creative Cloud App for iOS. This is a Universal App for iPad, iPhone and iPod touch and allows you to not only view the files you have stored on Creative Cloud, but also share them and upload new files from the the built-in camera or Camera Roll. Unlike most other cloud storage apps, the Creative Cloud App also allows you to see your native files such as .PSD, .AI, INDD, etc.

If you are a Creative Cloud Member (even with a free account) and you have an iOS device then you will want to try this app.

Adobe Lightroom for iPhone

Adobe Lightroom for iPhone is here!

Lightroom_for_iPhone

In April 2014 Adobe introduced Lightroom Mobile for iPad and Web. While it’s great having my favorite collections and portfolios with me on my iPad and having them sync and update automatically, I was really waiting for Lightroom for iPhone. I use my iPhone to capture NEW pictures and now that Lightroom for iPhone is here those shots will be sync’d to the cloud and then down to my desktop so that when I get back to my computer those shots will be there. Rather than continuing to talk about it, why don’t I just show it to you here:

You can get Lightroom for iPhone here: iTunes.
