Your smartphone is great for tons of things. It can find you the best oatmeal cookie recipe or it can alert you when the weather outside is frightful. But one thing we bet you never thought of is just how easy your smartphone can make living in an apartment for you and your family.

Pay and Play
Luxury apartments for rent in Brooklyn, Queens and NYC have all but left those clunky clipboards and sign-up sheets in the dust. Clever smartphone apps have recently become the go-to force in renting and living in a luxury apartment complex. Paying your rent, signing up for events or reserving a seat in the weekly yoga class is now as easy as opening an app on your phone. Check with your leasing agent when you are exploring your next apartment rental to see if this option is available to you.
Pretty as a Picture
Hanging that family portrait or vintage spoon collection? Be aware, nothing can mess up the Feng Shui in your new apartment more than a crooked set of sconces. Solution: head over to your favorite app store and download a “leveler” app. save yourself a trip off the ladder and over to your toolbox (heck, your phone was in your pocket anyway).
There’s no need to physically meet every resident in your building or suburban rental complex anymore! Solution: connect with your neighbors and fellow residents from your phone! There are plenty of smartphone apps that can help make even the largest community feel small and cozy. Here’s an idea; use these chat/group apps like a neighborhood watch program or community bulletin board to post items for sale, meet-ups and more!
There are so many apps and information guides on-line that can help improve the quality of life in your apartment building or complex. Find one that works for you and you’ll never have to leave the comfort of your living room again (but we suggest going outside anyway).
