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

Fypio: Residential Homes Lifestyle App

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
