CAR offers free iPhone app

Other associations can brand, license new tool

The California Association of Realtors has developed an iPhone application that’s now available for free download to members at the Apple iTunes store.

CAR — which is also offering versions of the application for BlackBerry and other Web-enabled smart phones — claims to be the first realtor association in the country to offer an iPhone app.

But the group says it will allow the scalable, data-driven application to be licensed and branded by other local and state real estate associations.
