Smartphones are so handy. We use them to connect with the world around us—through news, social media, and...okay, maybe a little bit of Candy Crush, too. There are also tons of tools out there to increase productivity and keep track of all of things life throws at us. Not everyone thinks to effective utilize their devices for work, though.
In case you've been asleep for the entirety of the smartphone era thus far, here's a news flash: There's an app for everything now. If you can think of it, there's probably an app for it; if not, there's probably one (or more likely 50) in development for it somewhere. Heck, even if you haven't thought of it, there's probably an app for it. (If you don't believe us, check out Ghost Radar. It's an app that supposedly gives you everything you need to measure paranormal activity.) Here at Memphis Invest, we released our first real estate investing App about 2 years ago and are already working on two new Apps. One will be just for our clients and the other will be for any real estate investor out there that finds it useful. We certainly are not going into the App business, but we definitely see it as a way to continue to put distance between ourselves and other companies. Plus there seems to be an App wave going on!
