Being rental property managers ourselves, we know time is the most valuable commodity we have. The Landlord App was developed purely as a time saving tool to maximize the effectiveness of landlords and property managers who use it.

The LandlordApp FAQ

Where is the data stored, on the sim card or on the phone?

The data is stored on the phone for iPhone. For Android the user has the option of storing data on the phone or on a memory card.

Is there a data backup and restore capability in case the phone is lost or stolen?

Both the iPhone and Android have inherent backup functions that allow for app data to be restored. At this time we have not tested it but according to the below links, app data is saved in the phone backup file. In addition to using the backup feature we recommend that you do quarterly or semi-annual exports of rental data.

Android: http://developer.android.com/guide/topics/data/backup.html

iPhone: http://support.apple.com/kb/ht1766

What format is the exported tax data stored in?

All exported rental data is stored in a CSV file, which can be opened with excel. To load an exported report, Select the property you want to export data from, email the data to your email address, copy the text from the email sent from the landlord export function. Open windows notepad and paste the text from the email, save the file. Open excel and click on the open file funciton. At the bottom of the open file window change the file type option to “view all files”. Select and open your notepad file, excel will prompt you if you want to open this as a delimited file, say yes and select comma as the delimiter. Depending on how you want to set up your file you can change settings in the next couple of option screens to how you like. I skip through these steps and hit finish. The end product should look like this:
