SIMI VALLEY, Calif., October 20, 2016 – Rapattoni Corporation (Rapattoni) announced today that the company's Rapattoni MLS Mobile App is now available for iOS and Android devices. This new offering allows realtors to access the MLS using a native app instead of a web browser on smartphones and tablets.
Each Rapattoni MLS customer receives a custom app branded with their logo and splash screen background image. MLS members can then download the free apps from the iTunes App Store and Google Play Store.
The new app makes accessing the MLS faster than ever, with a 'one-touch login' feature allowing realtors to enter Agent ID and Password once and then bypass them for subsequent logins. Using the Rapattoni MLS Mobile App, real estate professionals can quickly search for listings on a map, view hotsheets showing the latest listing updates, and access their contact and prospect data. Listing agents can also revise their listings and upload property photos directly from their mobile devices, plus the app includes social media tools, tax record integration, and a wealth of other MLS resources.
Destyn Dagle, Director of MLS & IWS Software at Rapattoni, said, "We're thrilled to offer these native iOS and Android apps to all Rapattoni MLS customers at no additional charge. With live MLS data as well as open houses and other features, our apps are the best source for up-to-date listing information."
"We started this project several months ago," added Rapattoni President Ralph Hoover. "Apple's review process is fairly thorough and getting the iOS apps approved can be rather time-consuming, plus we also need to get the Android versions approved by Google. Since the apps are customized for each MLS site, each one needs to make its way through the review process individually. It’s a lot of work but well worth it to win a spot in the iTunes App Store and the Google Play Store."
Catherine Emert, Information Technology Director at Central Oregon Association of REALTORS®, said, "The Rapattoni MLS Mobile App allows our brokers the ease and flexibility to work from anywhere and on any device. We especially like that the app's appearance is customizable with our logo and design. This is a great enhancement for our membership."
Tonya Marley, MLS Administrator at Lubbock Association of REALTORS®, commented, "I've received some very positive feedback on the new Rapattoni MLS Mobile App. Our members really like that they don’t have to login each time they use it."
Elaine Hangis, CEO at Lexington-Bluegrass Association of REALTORS®, said, "Rapattoni's new app is loaded with great features and it's been a real hit with our members. Being able to download it from the official iTunes and Google Play stores makes it easy for everyone to get it running."
Brian Tepfer, Executive Vice President and Chief Technology Officer at Rapattoni, added, "Many realtors are transitioning from desktop computers to mobile devices as their primary means of accessing MLS data. Our native apps for iOS and Android deliver powerful MLS tools with an intuitive touch-based interface that helps these users work more efficiently on smartphones and tablets."
