Lokboks available in the app store

It’s alive. Go get it for free!

Be on the lookout for the Lokboks iPhone app

Hey there folks. We’ve finally submitted our iPhone app to Apple and are impatiently awaiting its approval.

This is v1.0 and will have very simple functionality. To give you an idea …

  • Login
  • Create a new property
  • Upload photos
  • That’s it!

By doing the following, you will have effectively created a website for your property with its own unique URL, gallery of photos for buyers to virtually tour your property, and finally, you have created a printable flyer with a unique QR code for buyers to print out or for you to stick in your yard sign.

This all happens in a matter of minutes while you are standing onsite at the home with, ideally, your listing agreement in hand.

If you haven’t signed up for Lokboks yet, be sure to so you can get the first scoop!

Lokboks review with Tech Savvy Agent at RETechSouth

Big shout out to Chris Smith of Tech Savvy Agent. Thanks so much for the support!

From the Tech Savvy Agent blog:

Lokboks looks to be a major new player in the single property website space and was built for mobile which I of course love. They showed us some screenshots and also offered to sign anyone up who is interested for their unreleased (edit: RELEASED!) beta.

Creating beautiful iPhone property tours

Like traditional photography, light is the most important element when it comes to taking photos with your iPhone. However, with a shaky hand and low lighting your results can easily become blurry and subpar.

To bypass this problem, use a small tripod or monopod with your phone plus the ever-so-awesome glif to get the most bang for your buck, when creating Lokboks property tours from your iPhone 4.

You could get a glif and a tripod/monopod setup for roughly $50-$100. Not a bad investment for dramatically superior mobile created property tours for all of your listings!

The Cosmonaut

This is just too cool not to repost. According to Kickstarter,

The Cosmonaut was born out of our desire to have a really great stylus for our iPads.

Would you use one of these?

iPhone 5

We’ve been keeping our eye on the iPhone 5 rumors and with the latest Mashable post out, it’s time to weigh in.

The image above, courtesy of Nowhere Else, shows one concept of an iPad 2ish design for the iPhone 5. If this and the 8-megapixel censor rumor is true, you’re gonna have one amazing property tour creator in your pocket when you use the Lokboks iPhone app.

Lokboks iPhone app coming soon!

We’re thrilled to announce the Lokboks iPhone app is coming soon! With this app you’ll be able to create virtual tours right from your new listing. No need to wait ’til you get back to the office, you’ll be uploading photos right on the spot. Once your property is created with the app, so are your property flyers and QR codes automatically! Move onto to your next deal and let Lokboks handle the rest.

There’s nothing like this on the market right now, so be the first to sign up and get notified when it’s released.
