The March App of the Month is called GroupMe. This is a free, simple way to stay connected with those who matter most. Family. Roommates. Friends. Coworkers. Teams. Greek Life. Bands. Faith Groups. Events. Vacations. I have used this App for about 3 years. This is an easy way to send one text to those people in the group. With Women’s Council, I’ve set up one group for the State Line Officers and one for the Local Network Presidents. You can download GroupMe from Google Play or iTunes. And, it’s free!
Turn your boring time in the car traveling to and from showings with clients into time worth spending…by listening to podcasts.
“A podcast is a digital audio file made available on the internet for downloading to a computer or mobile device, typically available as a series, new installments of which can be received by subscribers automatically according” to the dictionary.
Podcasts are available for Apple and Android phones, typically found in iTunes or Google Play store. If you don’t want to use either of these, you can also use Spotify for Pocket Casts for free.
In the search bar you can type in “podcast” to get a list of all the podcasts available. If you want to get more specific on a subject you can type in the subject you want such as “real estate podcast” and a list or podcasts will populate. Most available are in a series as stated above and you can subscribe to have them download when they become available. If you only want a particular episode, you can download only that one. You are also able to search by the name a certain series to get them all. For example: Type in “Real Estate Uncensored”. A list will come up with items available with that name and tell you they Podcasts. Click on the one you want. In this example choose the one with Greg McDaniel & Matt Johnson who are the people that offer this one. When you click on it you will get the details about what it’s about, who is on there and reviews. You will see a list of all the individual episodes available if you want only 1 or you subscribe to get them all. When you choose any of these, they will go into your Podcast app if you are an Apple user. I am sorry that I don’t know what happens on an Android.
So find something that interests you and you want to learn more about, something that motivates you, or something that will make you laugh or think. You are now able to turn that boring time in the car into time that be worth your while.
If you love to read but don’t have the time, this FREE app is for you. You do need a library card. But if you find your library card stuck in the back of a drawer and it doesn’t have a bar code, you will need to go to your favorite library and get it updated. (or so a friend told me, uh hem…) Anyway, I am in the car A LOT and have thoroughly enjoyed listening to books that unfortunately I just don’t have time to sit down and read. Motivational, business, fiction, non-fiction, history – it’s all there. It can also be used when you are exercising, walking, running – the list goes on and on. Anything that the library has, you have access to! Books, music, magazines, movies, etc. You are also not limited to one library. So, if you have an account with more than one library, you can add both library accounts to the app. And, it’s FREE. Go to your app store, and download Overdrive.
