Geeks love their iPhones. And I tell you what… as soon as I finish writing about a new iPhone application in real estate (see Terabitz Creates MLS iPhone Site), another one lands on my doorstep.
Not that that’s a bad thing.
This time, it’s from Cellsigns – the SMS marketing company. They’ve launched a new product where you can text in to a number (say, on a for sale sign) and receive the video tour of that property on your iphone.
If you have an iPhone, you can see how it works by texting the numbers on the following video
Text VID555 to 79274 and you’ll receive a SMS message with the property information and a link that opens the video up in the iPhone’s built in Youtube player. Pretty slick.
Unfortunately, like other Youtube videos, the experience is crippled by the iPhone’s EDGE connection and unless you’re in a WiFi hotspot the playback is hardly bearable.
Nevertheless, a very cool innovation and one that will surely get better with the arrival of the much demanded 3G iPhone.
