Looking for a Home?

With back to school just around the corner, real estate sales will be experiencing an uptick. Maybe it's because vacations have come to an end, but historically sales pick up in the fall. Realtor.com is the most used site for searching and researching homes for sale, and has just updated their iPhone app.



Mix: Free iPad Apps

image

I downloaded an app the other day for my ipad called Appstream for iPad. It reminded me of the old apple store window display that had all the cardboard apps hanging. This is kind of a fun way to find an app. I chose the setting to show me free iPad apps. The apps are displayed in real time. Click on an icon and a new box comes up that gives the pertinent information as well as screenshots and it redirects you to the app store.

 

I downloaded the below other apps that I am mentioning from Appstream also.



Get your Bumper case now (or select an alternative third party case)!

image

I predict this will be the #1 Lifestyle Free app momentarily... 

iPhone 4 Case Program is a free app that makes sure you are eligible for a free Bumper or a selection of third party cases.

The app is pretty straightforward.  It makes note of your device's ID and iTunes ID and you select which case you want.  I'm still not sold on the Bumper, as I prefer protection all around, and there will probably be a lot of Bumpers on eBay in the near future!



Apple Store Made Easy And Genius on the Go

Apple fans can take advantage of a new application from Apple, Inc. that allows you to shop online at Apple.com and even make reservations at your local Apple Store location.

Released today, the new application is a free download from the App Store for iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch devices. Within moments, you can shop online for products and accessories via this fast and convenient interface without having to fire up your mobile browser. The interface is streamlined for mobile usage with a clean look and feel and a familiar App Store layout.



Anttenna — free app uses GPS to serve up classifieds based on your location

image

This is a cool idea. Anttenna (free) uses GPS to let you find classified listings nearby. It's built on top of Twitter and creates a mobile marketplace for exchanging goods using bite-sized Twitter-style postings they call Anttweeting. You can also chat with people who have items for sale. As always, a service like this depends on lots of people using it, but they seem to be off to a solid start. It's using state-of-the-art social networking to facilitate local exchange.

Seuss, Seuss and more Seuss

image

Dr. Seuss on my iPhone was great, my son loved it but The Lorax ($2.99) on my iPad is out of this world!  This ebook is just more good stuff from Ocean House Media, see my previous post on The Cat In The Hat. The Lorax is the same well designed reader with a new story.
