ArchiTECH Tuesday: A Few App Reviews
Date: April 28, 2015
For today’s post Liz Peach from the WB IT Department reviews 2 apps that you might want to check out. She gives us the good, the bad, and the somewhat creepy…
Post-it Plus: A tool for anyone on the go
- Easy to use interface and was able to quickly discern its purpose
- The photo versions of the post-it notes were clear and easy to read
- Quick way to organize ideas
- Helps lesson clutter in an office
- Notes aren’t lost or damaged like they can be when left on a wall.
- Long term storage for ideas
- Easy to share in multiple ways
- Can even create a post-it board in the app.
- Cannot erase or have multiple colored post-it note options in the free version
- Great app for a creative job that uses post-it notes for creative purposes
The details the App offers provide great insights in 1 place for on-the-go quick views for potential developers to see the demographics in an area. Currently set to California, but still a great resource idea.
- Only seems to have homes in California
- But if you are looking for a home in California, the search criterial goes deeper than some more popular reality search apps
- I like the home age option search
- Information on the home is neatly organized and easy to read
- There is even a search criteria for what style of home
- Everything a parent would be interested in knowing about the area, schools, crime rate and even the salary of the neighbors is included
- It’s creepy how much it knows. You are able to creep on the neighbors before you even drive through the neighborhood.
- You can see not only demographics but:
- What the neighbors are saying on twitter
- See Instagram photos
- Where they like to shop
- What is the commonly owned cars
A few more suggestions of apps to try:
- M Board – a design app that lets you create on-the-go design boards if the mood hits you
- Field Lens – great for construction crews or teams on a project for collaboration, seeing sites in real time and more (desktop and mobile versions)
- iVisit 3D – very neat app, it allows you to visit and create 3D renderings on your mobile devices and then tour the site
