Product Review: Gist iPhone app

A mobile real estate Rolodex

While the Gist iPhone app is a useful real estate tool for consolidating contacts from a variety of sources, it may not solve the problem of information overload, said participants in an Inman News Product Review process.

A group of real estate professionals tested out the Gist app for iPhone, a free tool that aggregates information about a user’s contacts from a variety of sources, including e-mail "inboxes, address books, social networks, and other sources," according to an online app description.

The tool also pulls in news, status updates and blog posts from multiple sources to enrich the contact information.
