Trump Hollywood

We at Trump Hollywood in Hollywood Florida think these tools are great. We created our own app for potential buyers that shows them a video tour of the residences, lists all of the amenities and even gives them a big .pdf layout of the floor plans in each unit.

Right now we're working on a concierge function of the app to let residents (everyone who buys at the building gets a complimentary iTouch) know when a package has arrived for them or if they have visitors as well as lets them reserve the theater or club rooms.

Check it out if you have the time. Our site is http://trumphollywood.com and you can find the app on the Apple app store.
