iPhone 2.0 turned the iPhone from smartphone to full-fledged pocket computer. Applications continue to pour into the iTunes store and I’ve been experimenting with a lot of them. Here are a few of my favorites, practical applications:
Evernote – Need to keep track of all the contacts and colleagues you meet on the road? Scan their business cards with the iPhone’s camera and Evernote will scan in the information so it’s waiting for you in text form back on your desktop.
Puluwai – The power of location-based, mobile real estate search can be seen in this app. Bare bones for now, and the search results are pretty sketchy – but familiarize yourself with this experience… the future is here.
Yelp – Keep track of your online reputation in Yelp’s reviews with this handy app. Better still… find a good place for lunch when you’re out on the road.
Nearby – On a neighborhood tour with out of town clients? Top up the databanks with useful local landmarks pulled from Platial’s geobits. Better still create your own neighborhood tours on Platial and pull them up on your iPhone.
Sketches – Take a photo of a property you want to email to a client? Use Sketches to mark it up, add arrows and notes right on the photograph.
Any others to add to the list?
